"Israeli" Army's Chief: Fighting over Golan Heights to Renew in Few Months

Speaking before the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Military Committee, Eisenkot admitted that Hezbollah resistance men are gaining operational experience while fighting in Syria.

He further noted that Eisenkot claimed that Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s threats to fire rockets at the Haifa ammonia facility and the Dimona nuclear reactor were meant to create deterrence and maintain the status quo with Tel Aviv.

Eisenkot gave the MK his security assessment of the region, noting that at the top of “Israel” Defense Forces’ agenda for 2017 is preparedness for a possible conflict in the Gaza Strip.

“The election of Yahya Sanwar as the new leader of the organization in Gaza,” he said “shows there was no longer a distinct separation between Hamas’ military and political wing.”

At the beginning of the closed session, the “Israeli” military Chief noted the goals he had set for the army during 2016, saying that first and foremost was the military institution continued preparedness, which he was satisfied that it had managed to secure.

Supporting Palestinian Intifada Tops Closing Statement of Iran Conference

February 22, 2017


The closing statement of the sixth International conference “To support the Palestinian Intifada” held in Tehran highlighted on Tuesday the importance of the Palestinian cause, calling on supporting it and avoiding marginalizing it amid the regional crises.

The statement also hailed the Lebanese and Palestinian resistance movements, stressing their role in confronting the Zionist entity.

It also called on the international organizations to denounce and deter the Israeli aggressions, warning some Arab and Muslim countries against normalizing ties with the Zionist entity.

The statement added that the US administration intention to move the Zionist entity capital into Al-Quds must draw a response from the Arab and Muslim states by closing their embassies in the United States.

Finally, the statement highly appreciated the Iranian people sacrifices for the sake of the Palestinian cause.

The Iranian capital, Tehran, hosted on Tuesday and Wednesday an international forum in support of the Palestinian cause, with hundreds of foreign guests, including senior Palestinian leaders and officials of Muslim nations, in attendance.

Sayyed Nasrallah Promises Israelis with Game Changing Surprises!

February 16, 2017

Sayyed Nasrallah speaking in the ceremony held in commemoration of Hezbollah martyred leaders

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah threatened the Israeli enemy with game-changing surprises should it launch any stupid war against Lebanon.

In a televised speech marking the Martyred Leaders Anniversary on Thursday, Sayyed Nasrallah vowed that Hezbollah was preparing for the worst adding that the resistance’s deterrence capabilities and steadfastness of its people are stopping the Israeli enemy from launching any war since 2006 victory.

“We’re proud that the Zionist entity had put us on the top of their list of threats this year. Iran came second and the Palestinian resistance third. But it’s shameful that they didn’t consider any Arab regime as a threat,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, adding that since July 2006 war we were faced by threats of an Israeli war against Lebanon but the Israelis refrained from taking any action since then.

The S.G. reassured Lebanese that any possibility of a future Israeli war is low, especially after some people believed that a US president like Trump would encourage Israelis to attack Lebanon.

“There’re always political pretexts for a war against us, and an Arab cover is found today more than it was in 2006. The matter is that the Israeli is not sure of its victory in any future war and doesn’t need any US or Arab permission, meaning that the resistance has the required defenses and support from our people to deter it,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

The July 2006 war, he said, has made Israelis skeptical about any decisive win, adding that all of the Israeli rhetoric about possible future war on Lebanon is part of a “psychological war.” “Our guarantee is our strength and steadfastness which are preventing the Israeli from any adventure.”

Concerning the Ammonia threat, Hezbollah’s S.G. warned the Israelis that Hezbollah can reach Ammonia tanks anywhere. “The Israelis hurried to empty out its Ammonia container [in the northern occupied city of Haifa] of its toxic content after our threat to target it, but I tell them that we’ll target it wherever it’s taken to,” His eminence said, advising the Israelis to “not only evacuate the Ammonia tank from Haifa, but also dismantle the Dimona nuclear plant” from Negev.

“The Israelis believe that we are serious with our threats and capabilities and that our actions speak,” Sayyed Nasrallah noted.

Questioning the Zionist guts to send ground troops into Lebanon in any future war, Sayyed Nasrallah said: “Aerial war alone cannot decide the fate of the battle and cannot achieve victory. Had it not been for the Syrian army’s fighting on the ground in Syria, it would not have been able to achieve decisive victory.”

His eminence reminded the Israelis of 2006 War when they thought they had enough intelligence about Hezbollah’s ammunitions and targets but were astonished with what happened back then. “In 2006 you had intelligence of our ammunition but you were astonished with what you saw after figuring out that you didn’t have enough information,” He said, promising them with surprises that would change the course of any war.

“Circumstances have changed today and the resistance won’t stand in its place to protect itself,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

Concerning the Palestinian cause, Sayyed Nasrallah pointed that these days “we are witnessing the final chapters of liquidizing the Palestinian cause and the Arab regimes are quick to normalize ties with the Israeli enemy.”

He added that some Arab representative in Cairo were upset with the Lebanese President Michel Aoun’s speech at the Arab league. “Some Arabs were upset by President Michel Aoun when he tackled the Palestinian cause and the resistance and when he told them that the enemy has transformed the war into an Arab-Arab war.”

Sayyed Nasrallah said that in the meeting between Israeli Premier Benjamin Netanyahu and Trump, the latter dropped the US commitment to the two-state solution, which signaled the end to any ‘peaceful negotiations’ between Palestinians and Israelis. “Where is the Arabs’ position and their response to the aggressions of the Zionist enemy,” His eminence wondered, but the Arab answer, he said, is with more killings in more killings in Bahrain, Yemen and Syria, and with more conspiracies against Iran.

“Circumstances are going to change, nothing remains as it is, there are schemes in the region that will be foiled and in the midst of conspiracies a resistance generation is to be born and achieve decisive victory,” Sayyed Nasrallah promised.

On Bahrain, Hezbollah’s secretary general pointed that Bahrain today is a country occupied by the Saudi forces which is killing and slaughtering the Bahraini people, adding that the decision to execute the three Bahraini youth was a Saudi order. “All those who bet that Bahrainis would be exhausted shall review what happened in the past days and be reassured that the solution is rather in listening to their rightful demands.”

Tackling the Yemeni conflict, Sayyed Nasrallah said the Israeli was a partner in the aggression against Yemen in addition to the US and Emirati support but added that the “steadfastness of the Yemenis is a myth, the crisis started two years ago with the hope it would take them only weeks to finish it but they were mistaken.” He said Saudi Arabia are bringing mercenaries from some countries to fight a proxy war in its war against Yemen, but the Yemenis are steadfast and firm in their resistance.

“The people who say ‘Humiliation, how remote’ as their motto won’t be defeated,” His eminence assured.

Sayyed Nasrallah held Saudi Arabia responsible for the blood being shed in some Arab countries. “Saudi Arabia created ISIL and it bears the responsibility of hundreds of thousands of martyrs who were killed in Iraq, Syria, Sinai and other places.” But He reassured that as “we gained victory in 2000 and in the July war, we are now approaching victory over the American-Saudi-Israeli project called ISIL.”

His eminence began his speech with saluting participators in the ceremony entitled “Masters of Victory” that was held in the hometowns of the martyred leaders in Jibsheet (the hometown of Martyr Sheikh Ragheb Harb), Nabisheet (the hometown of Martyr Sayyed Abbas Al-Mousawi) and Teir Dibba (the hometown of Martyr Leader Haj Imad Moughniyeh).

He paid tribute to Imam Ruhollah Khomeini on the anniversary of the Islamic revolution’s victory which “fulfilled the prophets’ dreams.”

“We insist on commemorating this occasion on the same day (February 16) since 30 years, in order for our generations to take those elite leaders as their role models and establishers of today’s victories,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, adding that all people should hail those leaders who were the basis for our stability and victory, “they are indeed the Masters of our Victory.”

Sayyed Nasrallah also saluted the Lebanese army soldiers and the resistance Mujahideen who are “defending our country and borders in such a cold weather.”

Yahya Sinwar Elected Hamas’ Gaza Chief

Hamas leader Yahia Sinwar attending a rally in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip January 7, 2016.

Yahya Sinwar Elected Hamas’ Gaza Chief

Palestinian resistance movement Hamas elected a member of its armed wing as its new Gaza head Monday, Hamas officials said.

“Yahya Sinwar was elected to head the Hamas political office in the Gaza Strip”, the officials said.

He will succeed Ismail Haniya, who is seen by many observers as the most likely successor to Hamas’s current exiled leader Khaled Meshaal.

In September 2015, Sinwar was added to the US terrorism blacklist alongside two other members of Hamas’s military wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades.

A graduate in Arabic language, he was born in the Khan Younis refugee camp in southern Gaza and founded “Majd,” one of Hamas’s intelligence services.

Arrested by Israeli occupation authorities in 1988 for “terrorist activity,” Sinwar was sentenced to four life sentences before being released in October 2011 under an agreement to exchange more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners for the release of Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier captured five years earlier.

Hamas has been conducting internal elections for several months.

«العسكر» على رأس قيادة «حماس» في غزة

مضت حتى الآن مرحلتان مهمتان قبيل انتخابات المكتب السياسي لحركة «حماس» التي تلعب فيها التزكية دوراً مهما. فبعد التجديد لمحمد عرمان في «الهيئة القيادية العليا لأسرى حماس»، أتمت الحركة أمس، انتخاب قيادتها في غزة

 انتخب القيادي والأسير المحرر يحيى السنوار، المحسوب على «كتائب القسام»، الجناح العسكري لـ«حركة المقاومة الإسلامية ــ حماس» وأحد مؤسسيه، رئيساً للمكتب السياسي للحركة في قطاع غزة خلفاً لإسماعيل هنية، الذي تؤكد غالبية التقديرات انتخابه قريباً لرئاسة المكتب السياسي في الخارج، علماً بأنّ هذه الانتخابات الداخلية تجري منذ شهور عدة.

وعلمت «الأخبار» من مصادر في غزة أن خليل الحية انتخب نائباً للسنوار، فيما يشمل المكتب في غزة ضمن تشكيلته المكوّنة من 15 عضواً كلّاً من صلاح البردويل ومروان عيسى وروحي مشتهى وسهيل الهندي وفتحي حماد وياسر حرب ومحمود الزهار وأبو عبيدة الجماصي وإسماعيل برهوم وجواد أبو شمالة وأحمد الكرد وعطا الله أبو السبح وناصر السراج، وثُلث هؤلاء على الأقل من ذوي خلفيات عسكرية أو يتقلدون مناصب ومهمات في «القسام»، فضلاً عن المقربين من الذراع العسكرية.

المصادر نفسها ذكرت أنه جرى اختيار مازن هنية رئيساً لـ«مجلس الشورى في قطاع غزة»، التابع للحركة، فيما جرى التوافق على خالد مشعل رئيساً لـ«مجلس الشورى في الداخل والخارج»، وبذلك يكون مشعل الذي يرأس الحركة فعلياً منذ عام 2004 بعد اغتيال مؤسسها الشيخ أحمد ياسين ثم خليفته عبد العزيز الرنتيسي، على وشك أن يختم 13 عاماً في منصبه. وكان لافتاً أنّ عماد العلمي ونزار عوض الله لم ينجحا في الوصول إلى المكتب السياسي الجديد، علماً بأنّ صعود إسماعيل هنية إلى المكتب السياسي جرى بالتزكية، على اعتبار أنه كان رئيساً للمكتب في غزة في خلال الولاية السابقة، فيما من المقدر أن تعلن نتائج انتخابات المكتب السياسي مطلع نيسان المقبل.

جراء ذلك، تصدّر الإعلام الإسرائيلي والدولي ردود فعل كبيرة حول اختيار شخص السنوار وتداعيات ذلك على توجهات «حماس» في المرحلة المقبلة، خاصة مع الحديث عن نذر اقتراب مواجهة جديدة بين العدو والمقاومة في غزة.

والسنوار اعتقل للمرة الأولى عام 1982 ثم في 1985، إلى أن جاء الاعتقال الأكبر عام 1988، الذي حُكم فيه عليه بالسجن أربعة مؤبدات إلى أن أفرج عنه في «صفقة جلعاد شاليط» عام 2011.

يُشار إلى أن الولايات المتحدة كانت قد أدرجت في أيلول 2015 اسم السنوار على لائحتها السوداء «للإرهابيين الدوليين» إلى جانب قياديين اثنين آخرين من «حماس» هما فتحي حماد وروحي مشتهى، والأخير ومعه السنوار تتهمهما واشنطن بأنهما «يواصلان الدعوة إلى خطف جنود إسرائيليين لمبادلة أسرى فلسطينيين بهما». كذلك يُنسَب إلى السنوار تأسيس وقيادة الجهاز الأمني للحركة، الذي كان يعرف باسم «مجد»، وكان له دور كبير في التنسيق بين المستويين السياسي والعسكري في الحركة في خلال الحرب الأخيرة في غزة.

أيضاً، كانت «حماس» قد عينت السنوار في تموز 2015 مسؤولاً عن «ملف الأسرى الإسرائيليين» لديها وقيادة أي مفاوضات تتعلق بشأنهم مع الاحتلال، وكان اختياره قد جاء بطلب من قيادة القسام لكونه معروفاً بـ«صلابته وشدته»، وفق المصادر في غزة. في المقابل، نقل موقع «المصدر الإسرائيلي» تقديرات جهات استخباراتية إسرائيلية تقول إن السنوار بصفته «نجح في تخطي كلا المسؤولَين الآخرَين في قيادة الجناح، محمد الضيف ومروان عيسى بفضل نفوذه ومكانته… (كما أن) اختياره في منصب رئيس حماس في غزة يعزز التقديرات بأنّ تأثير الجناح العسكري آخذ في الازدياد، ويتفوق على السياسي». ونقل «المصدر» عناوين رئيسية في صحف إسرائيلية منها «معاريف» التي جاء فيها: «يخاف نشطاء حماس من السنوار أيضاً». وذهبت صحيفة «هآرتس» أبعد من ذلك ورصدت بعض ردود فعل الداخلية، قائلة إن «فلسطينيين التقوا السنوار يعتبرونه متطرّفاً حتى بموجب مفاهيم الحركة، وهو يتحدث بمصطلحات مروّعة عن حرب أبدية ضدّ إسرائيل».

أما رئيس «لجنة الخارجية والأمن» في الكنيست الإسرائيلي، آفي ديختر، فقال مساء أمس، إن على «إسرائيل تعزيز قدراتها لتدمير البنية التحتية لحماس بعد تعيين يحيى السنوار رئيساً جديداً للحركة في غزة… من اليوم صار زعيم حماس في غزة هو شيخ القتلة».

إلى ذلك، أعلنت «كتائب القسام» في بيان أمس، أنها «تزفّ المجاهد أحمد البريم (22 عاماً) من خان يونس الذي ارتقى إثر انهيار نفق للمقاومة»، ضمن ما يسمى «شهداء الإعداد».


السنوار مسؤولاً لحماس في غزة

فبراير 14, 2017

فاز يحيى السنوار، أحد مؤسسي الجهاز الأمني لـ«حماس» برئاسة المكتب السياسي للحركة في غزة خلال انتخابات داخلية جرت أمس. ونقلت وكالة «معا» عن مصادر مقربة من «حماس» أن الانتخابات الداخلية لحركة حماس في ساحة غزة قد انتهت، وأفضت إلى انتخاب يحيى السنوار رئيساً للمكتب السياسي للحركة في غزة، وخليل الحية نائباً له، وذلك في إطار الانتخابات الداخلية التي تجريها الحركة بعيداً عن الإعلام والتي يرجّح أن تنتهي بانتخاب اسماعيل هنية رئيساً لمكتبها السياسي خلفاً لخالد مشعل.

ويوصف السنوار «العدوّ الأول» لـ«إسرائيل» في غزة.. بل إن البعض في الكيان الصهيوني يذهب إلى حد اعتباره «الرجل الأقوى في حماس».

واسم السنوار كان يتردّد خلال الفترة الماضية كأحد الأسماء المرشحة لخلافة هنية في غزة أو حتى مشعل في المكتب السياسي. في كل الأحوال فإن انتخابه مسؤولاً للحركة في غزة لا شكّ في أنه يحمل الكثير من الدلالات، خصوصاً ما هو مرتبط بالمواجهة مع الاحتلال الصهيوني. إذ يعدّ السنوار من الشخصيات الرئيسية البعيدة من دائرة الضوء المحسوبة على الجناح العسكري، وإن بدأ يظهر أكثر في العامين الماضيين. وكانت تقارير صحافية تحدثت عن تسجيل الذراع العسكرية للحركة إنجازات في الانتخابات الداخلية التي بدأت نهاية الأسبوع.

بانتخاب السنوار سيترقّب العدو مسار المفاوضات غير المباشرة مع حركة حماس من أجل استعادة جنودها إذ تنظر «تل أبيب» إلى السنوار على أنه من الأكثر تشدّداً في مفاوضات تبادل الأسرى. ويعدّ السنوار الذي يبلغ من العمر 55 عاماً من أوائل الناشطين في كتائب القسام مع بداية الانتفاضة الأولى. ترعرع في مخيم خانيونس للاجئين. اعتقله الاحتلال عام 1989 وحكم عليه بالمؤبد.

أما نائب السنوار خليل الحيّة فهو أكثر ظهوراً إعلامياً ويعدّ من الشخصيات البارزة في الحركة. استشهدت زوجته واثنان من أبنائه خلال العدوان على قطاع غزة عام 2014.

Two Israeli Soldiers Stabbed In Negev Detention Camp, As Army Continues Assault Against The Detainee

February 2, 2017 3:01 AM

The head of the Palestinian Detainees’ Committee, Issa Qaraqe, has reported that two Israeli soldiers have been stabbed in separate incidents, as the army, and special forces, continued the invasions into the detainees’ rooms, and the assaults against them.

Qaraqe’ said that one of the detainees slashed a soldier with a blade, in section 16 in the Negev detention camp, and that the army fired many gas bombs.

He also stated that the soldiers then cut the power supply, and started extensive searches for the detainee who stabbed the officer.

The army conducted extensive searches in Sections 13, 14, 15 and 16, and assaulted many detainees in the process.

Earlier Thursday, a detainee attacked a soldier with a sharp object, and wounded him, before other soldiers intervened, assaulted the detainee and placed him in solitary confinement.

The detainees in the Negev have lately been subject to extensive assaults by the soldiers, especially the Matzada special forces, causing mounting tension.

At least 400 Matzada officers invaded the detention camp, just hours before the stabbing, and violently searched the detainees and their belongings, in addition to spraying them with pepper spray.

In related news, dozens of soldiers and offices of the Israeli Prison Authority invaded, on Wednesday evening, sections 2 and 12 of Nafha prison, also in the Negev desert, and forced the detainees into the yards after cuffing them, and searched their beds.

The soldiers also assaulted many detainees and sprayed them with pepper-spray, while dragging them into the yard.

Netanyahu Under Fire for 2014 Gaza War

Local Editor

24-01-2017 | 13:51

A report that could be damaging to “Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu given how he managed the 2014 war in Gaza is likely to be published in the coming days, after regime members of a Knesset subcommittee said they would vote on Tuesday to make the report public.

"Israeli" PM Benjamin Netanyahu

After “Kulanu” MK Merav Ben-Ari, one of the three regime members of the subcommittee, said on Sunday that she would vote in favor of publishing the document, coalition chairman MK David Bitan said on Monday that he and the prime minister were in favor of publishing the report as well.

One of the critical sections of the report drafted by the comptroller deals with concerns that the security cabinet was not warned by the prime minister, the war minister or the “Israeli” Occupation Forces [IOF] chief of staff of the threat posed to the “Israeli” entity by Hamas’ tunnel network ahead of the 55-day “Operation Protective Edge” in Gaza in the summer of 2014.

It is also believed that the report criticizes the same trio for failing to warn the security cabinet that the chance of war with Hamas was high, and for not providing sufficient information during the operation.

A public letter issued earlier this week by families of 55 soldiers who were killed during the war put pressure on the government to publish the document.

According to “Israeli” website The Jerusalem Post, Ben-Ari said she had not received any direct pressure against publishing the document.

However, she acknowledged, “the way things were going [it looked like] publication would be prevented, but when we got to the moment of truth, however, everyone understood that the professional issues were more important than the political ones”.

The “Israeli” MK stressed on the importance to publish the document because it will have an impact on all “Israelis”, saying that “At the end of the day, the security cabinet needs to know what’s happening ahead of time and [to be able] to prepare for the next operation.”

Ben-Ari said it was “the right of the public to know how the senior leadership of the state acts in such an important time,” and that the report would be crucial in guiding the IOF and the security cabinet in conducting any future wars and operations in Gaza.

She also noted that the report is critical of the prime minister, the war minister and then-IOF chief of staff Benny Gantz, but would not be withheld based on the potential political impact the report might have.

Ben-Ari, together with Bitan and Shas MK Ya’acov Margi, are the coalition members on the subcommittee of the Knesset State Comptroller’s committee, together with subcommittee chairwoman MK Karin Elharar [Yesh Atid] and MK Eyal Ben Reuven [Zionist Union].

It is not yet clear if the section on the security cabinet will be published immediately, or if publication will on the decisions made on whether to publicize two other sections of the report, which will be passed to the subcommittee later this week.

Ahead of Tuesday’s vote, MKs from the entire political spectrum called on the committee members to vote in favor of exposing it to the public.

Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid, who was the “Israeli” entity’s so-called finance minister and a cabinet member during the operation, said in the party faction meeting on Monday that political considerations should not guide the panel members.

“There are already attempts to prevent the publication of the report,” Lapid said. “As someone who knows the details of it and testified in the comptroller’s office more than once – this report should be revealed.”

Lapid also addressed Netanyahu’s concerns in opening the report to the public. “The Prime Minister’s Office is afraid of the report because it shows severe failures.”

Bennett also expressed his support of exposing the details of the report, but added that it should be taken as constructive criticism.

“We should not ignore the ‘Protective Edge’ report but also [should] not make it a reason for [political] beheading,” Bennett said on Monday. “We should learn from it in order to change our security world view from inclusive to defeating; from dragging it over 50 days to winning in five.

“Only exposing the details will provide us a way to move forward,” Bennett added.

Zionist Union co-chairwoman Tzipi Livni, who served as so-called “justice” minister in the cabinet during “Operation Protective Edge”, echoed the notion that the report should be revealed according to the wishes of the bereaved settler families.

“I was in the cabinet during the operation,” she said. “But I wasn’t among those who leaked [details of meetings] to the media, and I will not do so now from the opposition. But the families and the public have the right to know exactly what happened, in order to create a constructive discussion about it.”
