​ISIS supporters claim attack on Hamas base in Gaza Strip (RT, May 8, 2015):

A jihadist group with ties to the Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a mortar attack on a Hamas base in the Gaza Strip.

The group, calling itself ‘Supporters of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL),’ said in an online statement that it fired mortar rounds at a base used by the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades (Hamas’ armed wing) in Khan Yunis, southern Gaza, on Friday. Continue reading »

Israeli Soldiers Describe How They “Shot Innocent Civilians Because They Were Bored” (ZeroHedge, May 5, 2015):

On July 12 of 2014 we reported that “after conducting countless sorties and bombing raids aimed at Hamas operatives in Gaza during the fifth day of Operation Protective Edge, but resulting in well over a hundred innocent civilian deaths in the past week, Israel, realizing it is not generating any brownie points with the international “humanitarian” media, finally did what it had threatened to do over the last few days – launch a ground assault.”

The ground assault promptly led to a mini-war in the Gaza Strip that left more than 2,100 Palestinians dead, of which 80% civilians, and reduced vast areas to rubble: a “war” which many speculated was a predetermined massacre by highly skilled, trained, and ethically drained Israeli soldiers who used civilians for target practice.

Israeli soldiers ‘deliberately fired’ at civilians during Gaza war – NGO (RT, May 4, 2015):

Israeli soldiers were ordered to ‘fire at every person you see’ during the Gaza war, while civilian areas were deliberately targeted with inaccurate weapons, a report by the Israeli group Breaking the Silence NGO asserts.

Breaking the Silence, an NGO run by former Israeli soldiers, spent eight months after Operation Protective Edge ended interviewing more than 60 Israeli servicemen from the army, navy and air force up to the rank of major. The result is 237-page report. Continue reading »

From the article:

Specifically referencing Israel’s military assault on Gaza last summer, the letter insisted “the massacre in Gaza spares no one.” Its victims include “the disabled and sick in hospitals, children playing on the beach or on the roof top, with a large majority of non-combatants,” the letter said.

The open letter’s signatories stressed the Israeli administration’s conduct in Gaza was an insult to their humanity, dignity, and intelligence. They denounced what they described as a “myth” propagated by Israel that its military aggression is conducted in a humanitarian manner.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Lancet medical journal accused of ‘hate speech’ on Israeli aggression in Gaza (RT, April 26, 2015):

A venerable British medical journal has been targeted by 500 doctors worldwide over its coverage of the humanitarian crisis caused by the Israel-Palestine conflict. It has been Britain’s most trusted medical journal for almost two hundred years.

The controversy arose after the Lancet, an internationally renowned publication, released an article deemed to be deeply critical of Israel’s conduct in Gaza.

Initially revealed by the Independent, the scandal has rekindled debate about freedom of speech and the human cost of the Israel-Palestine conflict. Continue reading »

Banksy-Mural-Gaza
Bomb damage, Gaza City

Palestinian ‘duped’ into selling priceless Banksy mural for £118 (RT, April 1, 2015):

A Palestinian man claims he was tricked into selling a Banksy mural worth thousands of pounds for a mere £118. The work had been painted on the door of his bombed-out house.

Banksy is believed to have infiltrated Gaza via Egypt earlier this year at considerable personal risk through an underground tunnel.

He painted four murals including one of the Greek goddess Niobe, who is pictured cowering amid the devastation left by Israeli bombing carried out last summer.

Her image was painted on a steel door, which was all that remained of the home of Rabie Darduna, 33, and his family who had been displaced during the war.

Banksy artworks are regularly valued at hundreds of thousands of pounds, but Darduna, who claims he was unaware of the door’s value and even of who Banksy was, sold it to a local artist for around £118. Continue reading »

Gaza-Fisherman
Palestinians say increasing restrictions on the water they use have led to economic collapse – and deadly assaults

The Gaza fisherman who built his own reef – and was shot dead there by an Israeli gunboat (Independent, March 29, 2015):

The underwater rock formations provide the best fishing grounds off Gaza, but they are just beyond the limit set by the Israelis for local boats. Tawfiq Abu Riyala dreamt up an ingenious plan to solve this problem; but it may have ended up costing him his life.

The 32-year-old fisherman had built up his own artificial rock with planks of wood, tyres, and bits of metal, seemingly well within the area in which he and his colleagues are allowed to operate. It was while he was adding to this pile that an Israeli gunboat opened fire, wounding him fatally. Continue reading »

TURKEY'S PM AHMET DAVUTOGLU AT PARLIAMENTARY GROUP MEETING

–  Another Turkish Shocker: “Netanyahu And The French Terrorists Are The Same”, PM Says (ZeroHedge, Jan 15, 2015):

Just two day after the Turkish President Erdogan’s stunning outburst that “the culprits are clear: French citizens undertook this massacre and Muslims were blamed for it,” and blamed Mossad for masterminding it, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Thursday accused his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu of committing “crimes against humanity” comparable to those of the Islamist gunmen behind the Paris attacks that left 17 dead.

As AFP reports,

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu’s comments on Thursday risk enflaming a new row in the increasingly tense bilateral relationship after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blasted Netanyahu for “daring” to attend the weekend’s anti-terror solidarity march in Paris after the attacks.

“Netanyahu has committed crimes against humanity the same as those terrorists who carried out the Paris massacre,” he told reporters in Ankara in televised comments.

Davutoglu said Netanyahu’s “crimes against humanity” included the deadly 2010 Israeli assault on a Turkish aid vessel and last year’s onslaught on Hamas-controlled Gaza.

Davutoglu said Netanyahu was “the head of a government which massacred children playing in the beaches in Gaza and destroyed thousands of houses.”

He said the Israeli premier’s government “made almost natural the killing of Palestinians at every opportunity.” Continue reading »

Israel bans outspoken Norwegian doctor from Gaza for life for ‘security reasons’ (RT, Nov 14, 2014):

Israel has banned Mads Gilbert, a Norwegian doctor who has helped Palestinians during conflicts for over 30 years, from entering Gaza, following his outspoken criticism of the Israeli government. Oslo has asked Jerusalem to reverse the decision.

“I was asked by the Norwegian authorities to go down to continue working in Gaza. When we arrived at the Erez Crossing, I was told by Israeli soldiers that I could not go into Gaza. I had to turn back to Norway,” said the 67-year-old, who was attempting to return to the region for the first time since the end of Israel’s Gaza offensive, which ended in August, as reported by Norway’s VG newspaper.

“I have never broken any Israeli laws. It’s provocative, unreasonable and totally unacceptable.” Continue reading »

ICC: Israel’s killing of 9 Gaza flotilla protesters ‘not of sufficient gravity’ for war crimes probe (RT, Nov 6, 2014):

The killing of nine Gaza Freedom Flotilla protesters in 2010 by Israeli forces lacked “sufficient gravity” to come under its jurisdiction, the ICC said, adding that there was reason to suspect war crimes were committed.

“Following a thorough legal and factual analysis of the information available, I have concluded that there is a reasonable basis to believe that war crimes under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court were committed on one of the vessels, the Mavi Marmara, when Israeli Defense Forces intercepted the ‘Gaza Freedom Flotilla,’” the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) chief prosecutor Fatou B. Bensouda said in a statement. Continue reading »

The EU’s newly appointed foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini has called for the establishment of a Palestinian state in the next few years, saying that the European community should ‘move forward’ with its role in the Middle East.

I would be happy if by the end of my term, a Palestinian state existed,” the 41-year-old former Italian foreign minister said in her first newspaper interview as successor to Britain’s Catherine Ashton in the post of EU’s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy.

Gaza cut off: Israel closes border crossings indefinitely (RT, Nov 2, 2014):

Israel has said it’s shutting the only two operating Gaza border crossings indefinitely. This comes a day after a projectile hit Israel from the strip, but caused no damage. Border closures threaten to isolate already devastated Gaza completely.

The move will affect both the Kerem Shalom and Erez border crossings, Haartez reported, quoting Israel’s defense establishment. The authorities have notified the Palestinians of the decision.

Meanwhile, the three other crossings into Gaza are still not operational and the passage from the area into Egypt – the Rafah crossing – remains closed.

From now on and until further notice, only critical humanitarian aid going into Gaza will be allowed via the Erez crossing. Continue reading »

The National – 27 October 2014

It is astonishing that the reconstruction of Gaza, bombed into the Stone Age according to the explicit goals of an Israeli military doctrine known as “Dahiya”, has tentatively only just begun two months after the end of the fighting.

According to the United Nations, 100,000 homes have been destroyed or damaged, leaving 600,000 Palestinians – nearly one in three of Gaza’s population – homeless or in urgent need of humanitarian help. Continue reading »

British government taken to court over arms exports to Israel (Middle East Monitor, Oct 7, 2014):

Arms trade campaigners are taking the government to court over the failure to suspend or revoke export licences for military equipment to Israel. Lawyers representing the Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) have told the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) that the failure to freeze the licences was unlawful since there was a risk the equipment would be deployed in Gaza.

Andrew Smith, of CAAT, told The Guardian: “The UK government’s response to the bombardment of Gaza was unacceptable. Vince Cable [the business secretary] himself oversaw a review that identified 12 licences for arms that he accepted were likely to have been used in Gaza. Cable refused even to suspend them at the time, saying that he would only do so if the violence continued. The violence continued, more people died, and yet he failed to follow through on his word.” Continue reading »

Video Justifying Destruction of a Gaza Hospital Was From 2009The video clip showing apparent firing from an annex to the hospital was actually shot during Israel’s 2008-09 “Operation Cast Lead,” and the audio clip accompanying it was from an incident unrelated to Al Wafa. (Screengrab: The Times of Israel)

Exclusive: Israel’s Video Justifying Destruction of a Gaza Hospital Was From 2009 (Truthout, Sep 6, 2014):

A video distributed by the Israeli military in July suggesting that Palestinian fighters had fired from the Al Wafa Rehabilitation and Geriatric Hospital in Gaza City was not shot during the recent Israeli attack on Gaza, and both audio and video clips were manipulated to cover up the fact that they were from entirely different incidents, a Truthout investigation has revealed.

The video, released by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) on July 23, the same day Israeli airstrikes destroyed Al Wafa, was widely reported by pro-Israeli publications and websites as proving that the hospital was destroyed because Hamas had turned the hospital into a military facility. But the video clip showing apparent firing from an annex to the hospital was actually shot during Israel’s 2008-09 “Operation Cast Lead,” and the audio clip accompanying it was from an incident unrelated to Al Wafa.
