As if Yemen can still tolerate a single massacre to grab the blind world’s attention to the tragedies happening over its soil.

In the latest scene of aggression against the country, 18 Yemeni civilians were martyred, not to mention all the others injured when Saudi warplanes launched an aerial attack in the southwestern province of Taiz in parallel with the Riyadh regime continuing its brutal merciless bombardment campaign against its impoverished neighbor.

In this respect, local sources reported that Saudi warplanes targeted a vehicle as it was travelling along a road in the al-Arish of Mawza district on Friday afternoon.

The sources added that around 20 people were martyred in the airstrike.

Earlier in the day, three houses were reduced to rubble in the al-Dhaher district of the mountainous northwestern province of Sa’ada, when Saudi military aircraft carried out three airstrikes against the area.

Also on Friday, Yemeni army soldiers and allied fighters from Popular Committees fired a retaliatory domestically-manufactured ballistic missile at an airport in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern border region of Jizan in response to the Saudi regime’s military campaign against their crisis-hit country.

Relatively, the Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights announced in a statement on March 25 that the Saudi-led war had left 600,000 civilians dead and injured since March 2015.

The United Nations says a record 22.2 million Yemenis are in need of food aid, including 8.4 million threatened by severe hunger.

A high-ranking UN aid official recently warned against the “catastrophic” living conditions in Yemen, stating that there was a growing risk of famine and cholera there.

The European Parliament Calls for Immediate End to Blockade on Gaza

The European Parliament Calls for Immediate End to Blockade on Gaza

By The Palestinian Information Center,

The European Parliament (EP) on Thursday called for an immediate and unconditional end to the blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip and condemned the Israeli killing of peaceful protesters near Gaza’s eastern border over the past three weeks.

The Parliament during its Thursday session passed a resolution by a majority of 524 votes (nearly 70% of the EP members) to conduct transparent and independent investigations into the crimes committed against the protesters taking part in the Great March of Return.

The resolution stressed the Palestinians’ right to peaceful protest, called for utmost restraint and underlined that priority must be to avoid any further escalation of violence and loss of life.

The EP expressed deep concern over the UN reports that the Gaza Strip will become uninhabitable by 2020.

It also praised the aid and services provided by UNRWA at many levels to about 1,3 million Palestinian refugees in the region.

The resolution reaffirmed that the main goal of the European Union is to achieve a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict on the 1967 borders with Jerusalem as a joint capital.

Thousands of Palestinians have taken part in the Great March of Return launched since 30th March along Gaza’s border with the 1948 occupied territories in demand of the Palestinian refugees’ right of return.

At least 35 Palestinians have been killed and about 3,100 injured by the Israeli gunfire deliberately targeting peaceful protesters.

A tightened blockade has been imposed by Israel on the Gaza Strip since 2007 causing unprecedented deterioration in the living conditions in the coastal enclave as well as high rates of unemployment and poverty.

The Palestinian Authority (PA) president Mahmoud Abbas in April 2017 decided to wage a set of punitive measure against Gaza to force Hamas to hand over the administration of the territory to the PA government.

The measures included cutting 30%-50% of the salaries of PA employees in Gaza, forcing some of them into early retirement, reducing power supplies and halting medical referrals.

Beware of White Helmets Bearing News

Beware of White Helmets Bearing News

The celebrated White Helmets of Oscar fame appeared to have made their own feature film in Duma on the night of the alleged chemical attack, as Ann Wright explains.

By Ann Wright Special to Consortium News

At the center of the controversy over an alleged chemical attack in the Damascus suburb of Duma on April 7 are the White Helmets, a self-described rescue operation about whom an Oscar-winning documentary was made.

Reporter and author Max Blumenthal has tracked the role of the White Helmets in the Syrian conflict. He reported that the White Helmets were created in Turkey by James Le Mesurier, a former British MI5 agent. The group has received at least $55 million from the British Foreign Office and $23 million from the U.S. Agency for International Development as well as millions from the Kingdom of Qatar, which has backed a variety of extremist groups in Syria including Al Qaeda.

Blumenthal writes, “When Defense Secretary James Mattis cited ‘social media’ in place of scientific evidence of a chemical attack in Duma, he was referring to video shot by members of the White Helmets. Similarly, when State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert sought to explain why the US bombed Syria before inspectors from the OPCW could produce a report from the ground, she claimed, ‘We have our own intelligence.’ With little else to offer, she was likely referring to social media material published by members of the White Helmets.”

The reference to social media as evidence in the most serious decision a leader can make—to engage in an act of war—is part of a disturbing trend. Then Secretary of State John Kerry pointed to “social media” as evidence of the Syrian government’s guilt in a 2013 chemical attack in the same Damascus suburb. But as Robert Parry, the late founder and editor of this site, pointed out in numerous reports, Syrian government guilt was far from a sure thing.

Rather than wait for the arrival of a team of experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to assess whether chemicals had even used in this latest incident, Trump gave the order to bomb.

Gas!    

The possible role of the White Helmets in the latest alleged chemical attack was first revealed by veteran Middle East reporter Robert Fisk, writing for The Independent. In “The Search for Truth in the Rubble of Douma-And One Doctor’s Doubts Over the Chemical Attacks,”  Fisk reported that he tracked down 58-year-old Syrian doctor Assim Rahaibani.

The doctor told Fisk that he learned from fellow physicians who were on duty at the clinic the night of the attack. Rahaibani said patients were brought in by “jihadi gunmen of Jaish el-Islam [the Army of Islam]” in Duma and that the patients appeared to be “overcome not by gas but by oxygen starvation in the rubbish-filled tunnels and basements in which they lived, on a night of wind and heavy shelling that stirred up a dust storm.”

Rahaibani told Fisk, “I was with my family in the basement of my home three hundred metres from here on the night but all the doctors know what happened. There was a lot of shelling [by government forces] and aircraft were always over Duma at night – but on this night, there was wind and huge dust clouds began to come into the basements and cellars where people lived. People began to arrive here suffering from hypoxia, oxygen loss.”

Rahaibani continued: “Then someone at the door, a ‘White Helmet,’ shouted ‘Gas!’, and a panic began. People started throwing water over each other. Yes, the video was filmed here, it is genuine, but what you see are people suffering from hypoxia – not gas poisoning.”

Fisk writes that, “There are the many people I talked to amid the ruins of the town who said they had ‘never believed in’ gas stories – which were usually put about, they claimed, by the armed Islamist groups. These particular jihadis survived under a blizzard of shellfire by living in other’s people’s homes and in vast, wide tunnels with underground roads carved through the living rock by prisoners with pick-axes on three levels beneath the town. I walked through three of them yesterday, vast corridors of living rock which still contained Russian – yes, Russian – rockets and burned-out cars.”

Significantly, Fisk reported that locals told him that White Helmets left with jihadists bused out of Duma in a deal made with the Syrian government and Russia, which provided security for the transfer.

Other Reports

Other reporters have corroborated what Fisk found. Reporter Pearson Sharp of One America News, a conservative Christian TV network and supporter of President Trump, interviewed doctors and witnesses at the clinic. They also said there was no chemical attack and that strangers came into the clinic and shouted “Gas!” and filmed the reaction.

RT’s Arabic service also tracked down an 11-year old boy filmed in the “attack,” and found him in completely good health and able to answer questions of the RT reporter. He told her he was with his mother when they were urged to enter the clinic. “We were outside,” the boy said,
and they told all of us to go into the hospital. I was immediately taken upstairs, and they started pouring water on me.”

Ann Wright served 29 years in the US Army/Army Reserves and retired as a Colonel.  She was also a US diplomat and was in US Embassies in Nicaragua, Grenada, Somalia, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Sierra Leone, Micronesia, Afghanistan and Mongolia.  She resigned from the US government in March 2003 in opposition to the lies the Bush administration was stating as the rationale for the invasion, occupation and destruction of Iraq.  She is the co-author of “Dissent: Voices of Conscience.”

MASS CASUALTIES PUTTING HEALTH WORKERS IN GAZA UNDER EVEN GREATER STRAIN

Gaza/PNN/

Amid further mass casualties on the third consecutive Friday of the “Great Return March” protests, health workers were put under yet further considerable strain and a number of them were injured.

Today, a Palestine Red Crescent Society medic in Rafah was shot in the knee with live ammunition, and a further 10 paramedics had to evacuate their medical point near Khan Younis after inhaling tear gas.

Even before Israel’s violent response the protests, health workers in Gaza were under huge strain due to the cumulative effects of a decade of blockade, which has degraded health and other essential services as well as the economy and living conditions, in addition to previous mass casualty events. Burnout and emotional exhaustion was already a significant feature among Palestine’s medical workforce. Now, they are once again experiencing the most difficult conditions, working long hours in tense situations and assisting casualties with often horrifying and life-changing injuries.

Last Friday, the World Health Organisation reported that five ambulances were damaged in attacks, three paramedics were injured by direct fire to the lower limbs, one by a tear gas cartridge to the head and that 29 healthcare staff suffered from tear gas inhalation.

Attacks on Palestinian health workers, facilities and ambulances by Israeli forces have been a painfully regular and repeated feature of the past decade, as MAP has emphasised in its publications and advocacy.

“Regretfully, no one has been held to account for any of the multiple attacks on protected medical personnel and facilities, and this impunity makes recurrence much more likely,” added Aimee Shalan.

“The prolonged and often traumatic stressors endured by health workers in Gaza are almost inconceivable for people not trapped there. On an almost daily level, they see and suffer what many of us won’t in a lifetime,” said Aimee Shalan, CEO of Medical Aid for Palestinians.

Today, at least 969 injuries have been reported by the Ministry of Health. More than 1,200 were reported to have been shot in the last fortnight. At least 26 protesters are reported to have been killed.

A medic treating severely injured protesters in a hospital in Gaza told MAP that the types and numbers of injuries “would overwhelm any European hospital and be classified as a “major incident”, let alone a local hospital in Gaza with a shortage of disposables and man power for this kind of injury. This is happening every Friday.”

With the sheer number of casualties threatening to overwhelm available services, communities in Gaza are stepping up to support them. In Khan Younis in the south of Gaza, for example, MAP has learned of groups of students of healthcare subjects banding together to form “rescue teams” to offer treatment and support the work of professional responders.

Those inside hospitals and clinics are working long hours to keep essential services running alongside caring for thousands of new patients. The physical health of unarmed protesters is clearly under threat in Gaza, but so too is the mental wellbeing of those who are once again bravely striving to save lives and limbs.

As we celebrate the steadfastness and resolve of Gaza’s medics, we are also outraged that their safety is once again endangered as they carry out their vital humanitarian functions.

MAP repeats its call on the UK government and the international community to support the demand of UN Secretary General for there to be independent investigations into the violence at the Gaza perimeter protests.

Sayyed Nasrallah: Resistance Able to Strike Any Target inside ’Israel’, Berri our Candidate As House Speaker


21-04-2018 | 19:58
Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered on Sunday a speech in which he addressed a huge electoral rally held in the Southern Lebanese city, Tyre.

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah


At the beginning of his speech, Sayyed Nasrallah addressed the the father of the three martyrs, Hajj Sami Muslimani, who saluted the Resistance Leader, by saying: “You, the martyrs’ families, are the crown of heads.”

Starting from the place of the rally, His Eminence highlighted that “the city of Tyre, remained unobstructed by sedition, as it embraced and opened its homes to Palestinians displaced in 1948.”

“”Israeli aggressions on Lebanon started in 1949, not with the advent of the Palestinian resistance factions,” he said.

He further stated: “The city of Tyre city resisted the occupation in 1982 and on its land the first self-scarifying operations was carried to break the Zionist enemy’s arrogance and prepare for the “Israeli” humiliating defeat.”

In parallel, he underscored that “we meet here on the anniversary of April 1996 “Grapes of Wrath” aggression, which began on April 11, by striking Hezbollah’s military headquarters in Haret Hreik.”

“The “Israeli” air strike at that time failed to hit Hezbollah military Leader martyr Mustafa Badreddine as the missile hit the other room,” Sayyed Nasrallah clarified.

Moreover, he recalled that the

“Israeli” chief of staff in 1996 said that Hezbollah have turned ‘April understanding’ into a boxing bag,” noting that “the sons of Imam al-Sadr from Amal movement and Hezbollah have developed the concept of resistance, that led to victory.”

Furthermore, His Eminence stressed that “the South and its people have waited the state since 1948 until Imam al-Sadr came and adopted the alternative by establishing the resistance.”

He also unveiled that “before 2006, it was the Resistance that asked the state and the Lebanese Army to be present in the South and along the border.”

“The Lebanese state has delayed its move and turned its back to the South,” Sayyed Nasrallah mentioned, noting that “it is not the poor, who bought arms from his own money to defend the land.”

Meanwhile, he added that “our crime is that we took up arms to defend our land and sovereignty.”

“The resistance that was the dream of Sayyed Sharaf al-Din and Imam al-Sadr has now turned to a real force that the enemy greatly fears,” His Eminence emphasized.

In addition, he went on to say that

“Thanks to the resistance capabilities and achievements, South Lebanon is currently safe from the Zionist barbarism.”

To Sayyed Abdl Hussein Sharf Din and Imam Moussa Sadr, Sayyed Nasrallah sent a message of assurance:

“There is no humiliation today that is able to hit the land of Jabal Amel [South Lebanon]

To Imam al-Sadr, His Eminence vowed:

“The resistance that you have founded owes the capability, power, technology and missiles that can strike any target in the “Israeli” enemy’s entity.”

“The resistance came with great sacrifices and we aren’t to abandon it, as it means our dignity and pride,” he added.

Addressing the people of the Resistance, Sayyed Nasrallah told the crowd:

“May 6 is your day of voting. It is a message to the world that we in the South have not left the resistance and won’t give up or turn our back. I hope that on May 6 … you will choose the Hope and Loyalty [electoral lists], the hope for the future.”

“Here in Zahrani-Tyre, you are not just voting for MPs, you’re voting for the next Lebanese House Speaker. There is no question that House Speaker Brother Nabih Berri should be reelected as House Speaker and he is the party’s strongest representation,” he said.

He further hailed the fact that “since the 1920s, there has been no internal peace in the history of the South as the one it’s enjoying from pride and dignity for the past 12 years.”

On the internal front, Sayyed Nasrallah noted that

“Lebanon has witnessed a kind of understanding: one party will defend the country and protect it while the other side will take care of the economy.”

This comes as His Eminence confirmed that “we can say, ‘these are our successes.’ We protected our country. Stability and security have been available since 2006.”

In this context, he asked the Future Movement:

“What are your achievements in administering Lebanon’s economics? Those in charge failed. Everyone agrees that we have an economic problem. We’re suffering from a huge debt that reached $ 80 billion.
The agriculture and the productive sectors are at an all-time low.”

Commenting on the National Defense Strategy, Hezbollah Secretary General reiterated that Hezbollah is ready to discuss it after the election ends.

However, he asked the Future Movement, “Who is escaping from forming a national economic strategy?”

On this level, Sayyed Nasrallah cautioned that corruption has extended to all state institutions. “When we talk about a strong country, corruption has no place. There is no discussion, no need for debate, the steps are clear. However, if the country keeps moving like this, it will crumble.”

In addition, he slammed the fact that Lebanon is suffering from sectarianism on all levels. Even Lebanese water and rivers have turned to a sectarian topic.”

“Even our gas and oil blocks are going to be distributed based on sects,” he feared, wondering: “what kind of country operates like that?”

He also said

“This isn’t a US, Arab countries or “Israeli” fault. We have to take responsibility. When you have a minister working for his sect, his town and his kids, can we still call him a minister for Lebanon?”

SYRIAN ARMY CAPTURES NEW POSITIONS FROM ISIS IN SOUTHERN DAMASCUS (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

On April 21, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Palestinian Liberation Army (PLA) continued their military operation against ISIS pocket south of the Syrian capital of Damascus.

They captured the al-Mujahedeen mosque in the southeastern part of al-Hajar al-Aswad district, according to Syrian pro-government sources.

Warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the Russian Aerospace Forces supported the government advance carrying out a new wave of airstrikes against the fuel and ammo depots of ISIS in the al-Hajar al-Aswad district and the Yarmouk refugee camp.

The ISIS-linked news agency Amaq claimed that ISIS fighters had repelled two attack by the SAA on their positions in the southern parts of al-Qadam and Tadamon. ISIS fighters killed six soldiers of the SAA and captured their light weapons, according to the source.

قمة ترامب بوتين وأمن «إسرائيل»

أبريل 21, 2018

ناصر قنديل

– بالتزامن مع تصاعد التوتر الغربي الروسي إلى أقصى ما يمكن بلوغه تحت سقف تفادي التصادم المباشر، عرض الرئيس الأميركي دونالد ترامب مرتين، عقد قمة تجمعه بالرئيس الروسي فلاديمير بوتين، فواشنطن محكومة من جهة بنتائج اختبار القدرة على إيجاد هامش للخيار العسكري يغيّر التوازنات من دون تورطها بمواجهة مفتوحة وشاملة. والتجربة بعد العدوان الأخير على سورية تقول بأنّ هذا الخيار الافتراضي لا مكان له في الواقع، فيصير أيّ عمل عسكري محكوماً بما وصفه وزير الخارجية الروسي باحترام الخطوط الحمراء التي رسمتها موسكو. ومن جهة مقابلة تضغط جملة استحقاقات على واشنطن لا تملك تجاهلها، ولا تجاهل أنّ العبور الآمن منها مستحيل من دون التفاهم المسبق مع موسكو. وهذا صحيح بالنسبة لاستحقاق التفاهم النووي الإيراني الذي يجب على الرئيس الأميركي حسم خياره تجاهه بين الإلغاء وإيجاد مخارج تفاوضية مطلع الشهر المقبل، كما هو صحيح بالنسبة للتفاوض حول السلاح النووي لكوريا الشمالية بين العودة إلى مواجهة قاسية وصعبة أو السير بالتفاوض حتى النهاية، والقرار مطلوب قبل نهاية الشهر المقبل.

– لا يمكن فصل إلحاح الرئيس الأميركي على طلب عقد قمة مع الرئيس الروسي عن القناعة الأميركية بالحاجة لتفاهم مع روسيا يوفر مخارج تفاوضية تواكب استحقاقات أميركية داهمة ومقبلة، ولا أمل من الفوز بها بخيار التصعيد، والمؤشرات التي حملتها زيارة رئيس المخابرات ووزير الخارجية المعين مايك بومبيو إلى كوريا ولقاؤه زعيمها كيم جونغ أون تقول بالعزم الأميركي على السير بالخيار التفاوضي الذي يشكّل التفاهم مع موسكو وبكين بوليصة التأمين لنجاحه. ويعلم الأميركيون جيداً استحالة السير بالبحث عن التفاهم مع موسكو وبكين على إيقاع قرار بحجم إلغاء التفاهم النووي مع إيران، ما يضع للقمة الروسية الأميركية المنشودة مهمّتين رئيسيتين من الزاوية الأميركية، مواكبة مساندة لإنجاح التفاوض مع كوريا الشمالية، وتقديم ضمانات تشكل مخرجاً مناسباً للرئيس الأميركي تتيح طي ملف التفاهم النووي الإيراني إيجاباً، وفي المقابل يحضر على جدول الأعمال الأميركي ما تريده روسيا سواء في سورية أو في أوكرانيا أو في ملف العقوبات.

– في الردّ على الدعوة الأميركية الأولى للقمة مع الرئيس الروسي قال الكرملين إن ليس على جدول أعمال الرئيس بوتين مثل هذه القمة. وكان ذلك تحت تأثير التصعيد الأميركي في سورية، بينما مع تجديد الدعوة الأميركية جاء الردّ الروسي مختلفاً ومسبوقاً بكلام لافروف عن التزام واشنطن بالخطوط الحمراء الروسية في العدوان على سورية، فقال لافروف عن القمة إنّ المهمّ هو ضمان نجاحها وتحديد وتحضير مسبق لملفاتها وجدول أعمالها، وخلال ساعات كان البيت الأبيض يعلن عن لقاء مستشار الأمن القومي الجديد جون بولتون المحسوب كعدوّ لروسيا، بالسفير الروسي في واشنطن أناتولي أنطونوف، والقول إنّ «البحث كان مخصصاً لحالة العلاقات بين الولايات المتحدة وروسيا ، والتأكيد على أنّ علاقات أفضل هي في مصلحة كلّ من الولايات المتحدة وروسيا»، ما يعني الدخول عملياً في ترتيبات القمة التاريخية التي ستجمع الرئيسين.

– القمة ستكون تاريخية، لأنها تلي جولات مواجهة اقتصادية ومالية وعسكرية وسياسية ودبلوماسية متعدّدة لم تُبق هوامش لم تُختبر خلالها، وصولاً إلى حافة التصادم المباشر، ولأنها تواجه الحاجة لحسم ملفات حساسة ومصيرية وخطيرة على مساحة العالم، ما يجعلها أقرب إلى قمة يالطا التي جمعت الزعيم السوفياتي جوزف ستالين بالرئيس الأميركي فرانكلين روزفلت بعد الحرب العالمية الثانية، لكن هذه القمة ستختلف لجهة وضعها قواعد نظام عالمي جديد، يبدأ بترسيم التوازنات والمصالح الحيوية والتفاهم على تسويات الملفات العالقة، وينطلق لمسار سنوات من ترتيب قواعد إدارة الوضع الدولي تحول دون التصادم وتسحب فتائل التوترات، وتوجه المقدّرات المخصّصة لتخديم المواجهة لتطوير الإمكانات الاقتصادية والاستثمارية للدولتين في مجالات تشكل الصين فيها شريكهما الثالث.

– يبدو أمن «إسرائيل» القضية الوحيدة العالقة التي يصعب بلورة حلّ تفاوضي سريع حولها، فمن جهة تواجه «إسرائيل» تصعيداً فلسطينياً لا تملك موسكو مفاتيح التحكم به، سيبلغ الذروة منتصف الشهر المقبل بتزامن ذكرى اغتصاب فلسطين مع نقل السفارة الأميركية إلى القدس، ويتزامن كلّ ذلك مع تصعيد إيراني إسرائيلي غير مسبوق، بحيث يبدو سقف الممكن هو ترك التطورات ترسم السياق، فسقف ما يمكن لروسيا فعله هو الوقوف على الحياد في المواجهة الإسرائيلية الإيرانية المقبلة، بينما تستطيع واشنطن تبرئة ذمّتها أمام الإسرائيليين بكونها منحتهم حلم القدس بنقل سفارتها، ويكون الاحتواء المزدوج من واشنطن وموسكو لمنع الانزلاق إلى مواجهة كبرى حاضراً لخيار أحادي هو فتح مسار الحلّ السياسي للقضية الفلسطينية والصراع العربي الإسرائيلي بما يشبه مدريد ثانية بينما على المسار السعودي يبدو التحضير لتفاوض سعودي إيراني الخيار الذي يتقدّم بمساعٍ عُمانية تحت عنوان الحرب على اليمن.
