November 13, 2019

An article posted by i24news mentioned the investigations, done by the Islamic Jihad resistance movement in Gaza into the assassination of the military commander Baha Abu Al-Atta, revealed the entrance of an Israeli drone to the bedroom of his apartment few minutes before the attack.

The report added that the Zionist drone entered Abu Al-Atta’s apartment to accurately check the presence of the target and transmitted images to the command few minutes just before it exploded, causing a light damage.

Few moments later, a warplane fired two missiles at the bedroom (of Abu Al-Atta’s apartment), destroying it completely, according to the report which added that the Israeli drones had always monitored the house before the assassination and that the martyr entered his house half an hour before the assassination.

Shin Bet chief Nadav Argaman boasted, during a joint press conference with the Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu and the Cjief of Staff Aviv Kochavi, that the enemy forces managed to reach even the bed of the martyr Abu Al-Atta.

It is worth noting that Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah had warned against the threat posed by the Israeli drone violations, vowing to confront this danger.

Sayyed Nasrallah’s remarks came in response to an Israeli drone attack on Beirut’s southern suburb (Dahiyeh) on August 25, 2019.

An Israeli drone come down in Dahiyeh’s Mouawwad neighborhood at 1:00 a.m. on Sunday (August 25, 2019), and another exploded in the same area half an hour later. The attack caused damage to Hezbollah’s Media Relations office which is located in the area.

الميادين نت

الأمين العام لحركة الجهاد الإسلامي في فلسطين زياد النخّالة يؤكد للميادين أن قرارنا بالرد على اغتيال الشهيد أبو سليم تم اتخاذه فوراً، كاشفاً أن” إسرائيل” نقلت إلينا طلباً لوقف إطلاق النار، موضحاً ان” من شروطنا لوقف اطلاق النار وقف الاغتيالات ووقف إطلاق النار على مسيرات العودة”، وتزامن بثّ المقابلة عبر الميادين مع نقل الإعلام الإسرائيلي شروط التهدئة التي وضعها النخّالة.

النخالة للميادين: سرايا القدس لم تستنفذ كل ما في جعبتها من صواريخ وأسلحة

أكد الأمين العام لحركة الجهاد الإسلامي في فلسطين زياد النخالة أن سرايا القدس اتخذت القرار الصائب بالرد على اغتيال اسرائيل للشهيد أبو سليم.

وفي حوار خاص مع الميادين قال النخالة إن قرارنا بالرد على اغتيال الشهيد أبو سليم تم اتخاذه فوراً بعد دقائق على عملية الاغتيال، مؤكداً أن سرايا القدس لم تستنفذ كل ما في جعبتها من صواريخ وأسلحة في مواجهة “إسرائيل”.

وإذّ شدد على أن قرارنا كان منذ البداية استهداف العمق الاسرائيلي بالصواريخ، توجه القيادي الفلسطيني بالتحية والتقدير للمقاومين الذين يواجهون إسرائيل ويقصفونها بالصواريخ”.

وأضاف “أقول لعائلات الشهداء إننا على موعد مع النصر و بهم سننتصر”.

النخالة أكد أن سرايا القدس وقيادة الجهاد الاسلامي هي التي حددت هذا القرار ونحن نتحمل المسؤولية بالكامل، موضحاً في ردٍّ على سؤال للميادين أن “باقي فصائل المقاومة موجودة على الأرض لكن سرايا القدس حاليا تتقدم المواجهة”.

وأردف قائلاً “أنا لا أقبل بمقولة أن الجهاد هو ولي الدم لأنني اعتقد أن الشعب الفلسطيني هو ولي الدم”.

النخالة شدد على أننا قادرون في حركة الجهاد على إدارة المعركة لوقت طويل ضمن خطط موضوعة سلفاً، وسنثبت للجميع أننا قادرون على مواجهة المعركة مع العدو وإدارتها بنجاح.

ولفت الأمين العام لحركة الجهاد الإسلامي في فلسطين أن “ردّنا من غزة على اسرائيل يشمل الرد على العدوان الإسرائيلي الأخير على دمشق“، مشدداً على أننا “لم نطلب من حلفائنا في محور المقاومة المساعدة في المعركة الحالية ضد “إسرائيل”.

وفي السياق، أعلن النخالة أننا لم نصل إلى مرحلة الحرب الشاملة بين محور المقاومة و “إسرائيل”.


“إسرائيل” نقلت إلينا طلباً لوقف إطلاق النار ونحن وضعنا شروطنا للموافقة على ذلك

وكشف أن “إسرائيل” نقلت إلينا طلباً لوقف إطلاق النار ونحن وضعنا شروطنا للموافقة على ذلك، موضحاً ان” من شروطنا لوقف اطلاق النار وقف الاغتيالات ووقف إطلاق النار على مسيرات العودة”.

النخالة قال للميادين إن “طلبنا لوقف إطلاق النار أن تقوم “إسرائيل” برفع الحصار عن غزة”، مذكّراً أنه يوجد تفاهمات قديمة عليها الالتزام بها لوقف إطلاق النار”.

وفي وقتٍ أوضح فيه أن “سرايا القدس لا تطلق رصاصة واحدة على “إسرائيل” دون قرار من القيادة التي تتحمل مسؤولية ذلك”، وفي حال تم الاتفاق على وقف إطلاق النار وأخلّت الأخيرة بأي بند منه سنكون بحلٍّ من الاتفاق”.

النخالة قال إن الدور المصري إيجابي وهم يبذلون جهداً لايقاف العدوان الإسرائيلي علينا، كاشفاً عن وضع مسودة الاتفاق على وقف إطلاق النار، متوقعاً أن يتلقى الرد الليلة.

وأضاف أنه “في حال وافقت “إسرائيل” على شروط وقف إطلاق النار يمكن التواصل مع مصر وإبرام الاتفاق فوراً”، مضيفاً أن “هدف وجودنا نحن هو مقاومة “إسرائيل” وأخذنا من العمر ما يكفي ومستعدون للشهادة”.

القيادي الفلسطيني قال “نحن مستمرون في المواجهة ونملك كل الامكانات لذلك والمقاومة اليوم اقوى بكثير”، لكنه أعلن أن “سرايا القدس تعمل حالياً بالمستوى المنخفض بالأداء العسكري العام”.

النخالة أكد”لمن يقول إن المعركة الحالية هي معركة سرايا القدس نقول إنها معركة الشعب الفلسطيني”، معتبراً أنه عندما توافق “إسرائيل” على إدخال اموال المساعدات هدفها ترويض المقاومة”.

وحول مسيرات العودة قال “قررنا حماية مسيرات العودة لذلك هي ضمن شروط وقف إطلاق النار”.

المسؤول الفلسطيني قدّر الدور اليمني “نقول لهم أنتم على حق ونحن معكم في مواجهة العدوان عليكم، ووجّه النخالة “التحية الكبيرة لتونس وللرئيس قيس سعيد الذي وجّه تحية للشعب الفلسطيني”.

Palestinian Resistance Retaliates after ‘Israeli’ Assassination of Military Commander, Civilians in Gaza

Palestinian Resistance Retaliates after ‘Israeli’ Assassination of Military Commander, Civilians in Gaza

By Staff

Palestinian resistance groups rained down retaliatory rockets on the occupied territories after the ‘Israeli’ enemy’s assassination of senior Palestinian resistance commander Bahaa Abu al-Atta and scores of civilians.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian resistance movements continue retaliation by launching missiles towards towns in the occupied territories.

At least 10 Palestinian people were martyred as a result of the continued ‘Israeli’ aggression against Gaza, after 3 others were martyred in an ‘Israeli’ airstrike that targeted the al-Atatera region in Bait Lahya, north of Gaza Strip.

The Gaza Health Ministry announced earlier on Tuesday evening that two Palestinians were martyred in an ‘Israeli’ airstrike that targeted an agricultural land in Bait Hanoun north of the Strip.

The military wing of the Islamic Jihad Movement, al-Quds Brigade, announced four of its fighters martyred.

The occupation warplanes, meanwhile, continue bombing sites belonging to the Palestinian resistance factions and different agricultural areas in Gaza.

Senior Palestinian Resistance Cmdr. Assassinated in Gaza Strike

Senior Palestinian Resistance Cmdr. Assassinated in Gaza Strike

By Staff, Agencies

“Israel” has assassinated a senior commander for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement in an airstrike in the besieged Gaza Strip, sparking a barrage of retaliatory rocket fire from the besieged enclave into the occupied territories.

In a statement, the Islamic Jihad’s military wing, al-Quds Brigades, confirmed the martyrdom of its commander, Baha Abu al-Ata, 42, in an “Israeli” aerial assault on his Gaza home early on Tuesday, adding that the group was on “maximum alert.”

It further said Ata’s wife had also been martyred during the “Israeli” air raid.

Additionally, the resistance group stressed that its commander was heroically defending the Palestinian land against conspiracies prior to his martyrdom.

It also vowed to continue in the footsteps of its assassinated commander in order to “complete the process of liberation of the entire beloved Palestine. Our response will inevitably shock the Zionist entity.”

Meanwhile, the “Israeli” army confirmed in a statement its strike against a building where Ata was present in Gaza’s Shejaiya area.

The operation, it added, had been recommended by the “Israeli” Chief of Staff and Shin Bet domestic security service, and approved by the entity’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

It also blamed Ata for recent rocket, drone and sniper attacks against “Israel”, as well as attempted infiltration into the occupied territories, claiming that he was planning “imminent” attacks.

“Abu al-Ata was responsible for most of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s activity in the Gaza Strip and was a ticking bomb,” the “Israeli” army said.

Separately, the Hamas resistance movement said the “Israeli” entity “bears full responsibility for all consequences of this escalation” and pledged that al-Ata’s death “will not go unpunished.”

Shortly after the “Israeli” strike, Palestinians launched a salvo of rockets into the occupied territories, setting off sirens as far as Ashdod.

The “Israeli” army said Gaza-based Palestinian resistance fighters had pounded the occupied-territories with “substantial” rocket fire Tuesday.

“There is substantial fire,” army spokesman Jonathan Conricus told journalists in a conference call. “We are preparing for a number of days of fighting.”

The assassination is likely to fuel tensions between Tel Aviv and Gaza, which has been under a crippling siege by the “Israeli” entity since 2007 and witnessed three wars since 2008.

Gaza has also witnessed deadly tensions since March 30, 2018 which marked the start of the Great March of Return protests, with participants demanding the right to return for the Palestinians driven out of their homeland.

«Israeli» Attack Hits Home of Islamic Jihad Official in Damascus, Kills Two

«Israeli» Attack Hits Home of Islamic Jihad Official in Damascus, Kills Two

By Staff, Agencies

A strike on a Damascus home belonging to the Islamic Jihad official has martyred the man’s son, in what appears to be part of an “Israeli” attack to assassinate leaders of the Palestinian resistance group in Gaza and Syria.

The Islamic Jihad issued a statement on Tuesday confirming the attack, identifying the official as Akram al-Ajouri.

Two civilians were martyred and ten others were injured due to the hostile targeting of a residential building near the Lebanese Embassy in Mezza area in Damascus that is home to Damascus University and several diplomatic missions, Syrian state media SANA reported.

Syrian authorities said a building in the capital of Damascus was bombed early Tuesday in a deadly attack, as its air defenses fired at a “hostile target.”

According to the SANA state news network, Syrian air defenses were fired at a “hostile target” over Daraya, a suburb south of Damascus.

The Islamic Jihad did not immediately accuse anyone of carrying out the strike, although the incident came less than an hour after the “Israeli” entity announced it had assassinated a top commander of the resistance group in besieged Gaza Strip.

It was not immediately known if there was any link between the incidents.

Relatedly, Syrian Interior Minister, Maj. Gen. Mohammad Khalid Al-Rahmoun, during his visit to the targeted site, said that the residential building was targeted by several missiles, claiming the lives of a number of civilians and wounding others.

The SANA report added that the building was badly damaged and the windows of nearby buildings and a number of cars were shattered.

It further mentioned that the Syrian Arab Army at dawn on Tuesday intercepted a hostile target over Darayya in Damascus.

Leaked Docs Show NSA Fed «Israel» Intel for Targeted Assassinations

By Staff, Agencies

Frustrated by a legal ban on sharing intelligence with “Israeli” operatives conducting targeted assassinations against Hezbollah, the NSA crafted a loophole giving them total access even to US citizens’ data, leaked documents show.

The so-called “Israeli” SIGINT National Unit [ISNU], the NSA’s counterpart in Tel Aviv, convinced the Americans to circumvent the legal prohibition on providing surveillance data for targeted assassinations during the “Israeli” entity’s 2006 aggression on Lebanon, according to the newest revelation from the archives obtained by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Using the familiar rationale of “terrorism” to excuse cooperation they knew was illegal, the NSA and ISNU found a workaround using the Office of the Director of National Intelligence that provided the “Israelis” with all the intelligence they needed, according to an October 2006 article in the NSA’s internal publication.

“To ISNU, this prohibition [on sharing data for targeted killings] was contrary not only to supporting ‘Israel’ in its fight against Hizballah [Hezbollah] but overall, to support the US Global War on Terrorism,” said an article in SIDToday.

Its author, whose name is redacted, details the “late-night, sometimes tense discussions” he had with ISNU officials who believed they deserved an exemption from the US prohibition on abetting targeted killings.

The documents don’t include details of what “arrangement” was eventually worked out with the ODNI, but the “Israeli” military used American data to lay waste to Lebanon’s civilian population, much like the tech-enhanced US troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, whose kill-counts swelled with civilian victims after they received access to NSA targeting data.

“‘Israel’ repeatedly, and in some cases egregiously, violated the laws of war,” Human Rights Watch reporter Nadim Houry told the Intercept, adding that the “Israelis” “engaged in indiscriminate aerial attacks” and cluster bombing against “civilian infrastructure that was not tied in any way to the armed conflict.”

This ‘strategy’ had a name – the “Dahiyeh doctrine” – and “Israeli” officials admitted it was deliberate, but despite this brutality, they were unable to win the war. A leaked presentation about the NSA-ISNU relationship notes that “public confidence in” the “Israeli” Occupation Forces [IOF] “erodes” and IOF “image damaged” after the seemingly-outmatched Hezbollah revolutionaries were able to keep the “Israelis” at bay. Nevertheless, the IDF was, according to the presentation, “Gearing up for Round II.”

Apparently unsatisfied with the legal loophole the Americans had created for them, the “Israelis” sought and received full access to the NSA’s massive surveillance data troves after the war. A 2009 memorandum of understanding officially gave ISNU unrestricted access to the NSA’s raw intelligence data – including the phone and internet records of American citizens and citizens of third-party countries. Only American officials’ data was excluded, on an honor-system basis [with ISNU instructed to “destroy upon recognition” any records originating with a government official]. Almost no strings were attached to this bonanza – the “Israelis” could even release the identities of Americans whose information had been scooped up in the dragnet, as long as they asked the NSA for permission first, and could pass the data on to anyone at all if the names were redacted.

While a leaked presentation calls ISNU “NSA’s most valued third party partner,” it also suggests there was “high anxiety” among the “Israelis” “heavily reliant” on NSA data for support. One slide reads “What Did ISNU Want? Everything!!!” and complaints about the ‘Israelis’’ “robust” spying on Americans crop up frequently in the Snowden archives. The NSA did not seem to mind, because the “Israelis” were very, very grateful for all the information.

“Throughout all of my discussions – no matter what the tone or subject – ISNU stressed their deep gratitude for the cooperation and support they received from the NSA,” the SIDToday article reads.

Talmud and Israel

November 23, 2018  /  Gilad Atzmon

Screen Shot 2018-11-23 at 10.17.29.png

By Gilad Atzmon

The title of Ronen Bergman’s book, ‘Rise and Kill First,’  comes from the Babylonian Talmud: “If someone comes to kill you, rise up and kill him first.”

In his recent appearance on Democracy Now, Bergman repeated this phrase, arguing that the Talmudic verse defines the lethal vindictive practice that Israel has used for three generations. Yet, for one reason or another, Amy Goodman and Juan González, Democracy Now’s leading hosts, failed to do their jobs.  They didn’t question or  challenge Bergman’s observation regarding the Talmudic origin of Israel’s vengeful impetus.

Being a well meaning character I decided to remind González and Goodman  what  journalism is all about.

The lies the kingdom tells – Saudi Arabia throws Hadi’s under the bus

10/15/2016 07:

Catherine Shakdam

Director of Programs for the Shafaqna Institute for Middle Eastern Studies

In a rather pathetic, and may I dare say rather unsophisticated fashion, Saudi Arabia – the grand devourer of world, attempted this October 15, 2016 to rationalise murder by pinning blame onto the very regime it claims has political legitimacy in Yemen.

To untangle itself from a global outcry before the wanton slaughter of civilians in Yemen, Riyadh named and shamed those factions, and those individuals, it once said ought to be returned to power – even if against the wishes of the people.

Confused? I would lie if I didn’t say I suffer from a political whiplash myself …

Before I walk you through the maze which is Saudi political logic … yes apparently it’s a thing, I would like to issue a disclaimer: Al-Saud would have a better chance at proving their innocence by arguing insanity. The sheer degree of arrogance and sociopathic political disassociation the kingdom demonstrated over the past week is mesmerizing. This regime is the very personification of Evil.

So no I will not even attempt to be rational in my analysis. As far as Saudi Arabia is concerned I will wear my prejudices on my sleeve and feel entitled to my sarcasm. At this point in time and due to the rivers of blood al-Saud made flow across the Middle East there is NOTHING any officials can say which will atone for the kingdom’s sins.

Now that I got this out of my chest let me go on.

Earlier this October a Saudi warplane, operating under the banner of the Saudi-led military coalition against Yemen targeted a funeral hall in the Yemeni capital Sana’a – not once, not twice, but three consecutive times. The attack was brutal, bloody and very much in violation of every law ever written by man.

An excess of 140 people were killed in the attack – according to Western media anyway. Yemeni officials have estimated the death toll to stand well over 300, including children. But figures are not what nations are arguing anymore!

The fact that unarmed civilians were slaughtered as they performed the last rites only sent a few shivers down the West’s spine – nothing major, just a little jolt to remind state officials that human life is not a disposable commodity … yet.

What nations are now arguing is responsibility, and the very dreaded notion of accountability. God forbids anyone would call on the kingdom to abide by the rule of law. And so a plan had to be devised … and what a beautifully carved idiotic plan it has been.

In all seriousness, you would like to think that Riyadh’s billions could master something better than a first-grader attempt to pass on the buck; especially when it entails implicating oneself further, especially when it equates to crumbling the very argument one so carefully built to wage an aggressive war on a sovereign nation. Just so you know international law frowns upon belligerent powers.

However difficult this may be to comprehend in this age of perpetual Western military interventionism, there is such a thing as territorial sovereignty. Nations cannot simply go about violently reforming other nations when they feel an urge to itch. But again, the legality of Saudi Arabia’s war on Yemen was never a matter of contention, not as far as Western capitals are concerned anyway.

And why should it when billions are to be made through lucrative military contracts? Who cares about Yemen’s sons and daughters when bottom lines are getting fatter still.

So what gave? And what did the Saudis do when faced with global outrage?

If the world is quite happy to stomach a quiet genocide, it appears our humanity draws a line at mass murder. It appears that the slaughter of the innocent as they mourn their dead in broad daylight still turns those un-empathetic stomach of ours.

And so world powers had to condemn. Officials had to object and verbally smite Saudi Arabia for the blood that stains its criminal hands. Need I highlight what embarrassment Riyadh’s faux pas caused to its Western allies?

By bombing civilians into oblivion Saudi Arabia very publicly and very crassly admitted to its genocidal tendencies.

But here is where criminality turns down right sociopathic … Saudi Arabia has blamed resigned Yemeni despot Abdo Rabbo Mansour Hadi for the funeral strike. The kingdom now alleges that Hadi’s men stole one of their warplanes and went about randomly shooting civilians.

Your eyes are not deceiving you. This is the line Riyadh is toeing!!!

But this is not the best part …

The kingdom did not just throw Hadi under the bus – you know the one guy Saudi Arabia went to war for on account he is Yemen’s legitimate president; it also sold out one of its most loyal supporters to the wolves – al-Ahmar brothers.

President Hadi meets Sheikh Sadiq al-Ahmar (leader of the Hashid tribal federation and al-Islah tribal confederacy) outside the presidential office in 2012

This part is actually really interesting. Al Ahmar brothers are Yemen’s tribal royalty. This one family has towered over Yemen for decades – politically, tribally, financially, religiously, you name it, they have controlled it. The unofficial owner of al-Islah political party, al-Ahmar’s name has long been a euphemism for the Yemeni Muslim Brotherhood. The same Muslim Brotherhood Riyadh has outlawed and branded a terror organization.

See what I mean about whiplash?

Do you start to see where I’m going with this?

Let me recap: Rather than plead temporary insanity, or bad intelligence for its latest war crime, Riyadh chose to sacrifice not one, but two of its allies. Not only that, but it disappeared the very ground it has claimed in this conflict – how can al-Saud back Hadi’s so-called claim on power after that is anyone’s guess. To add to that predicament the kingdom car crashed the last bit of tribal support it had within Yemen.

And let me tell you off the bat: without the tribes no power will ever hold in Yemen.

Logic would now dictate that Saudi Arabia hands both Hadi and al-Ahmar family to the authorities. I am eagerly waiting to see that narrative play out!

You think that’s crazy? It gets better … who ever said the Saudis are not entertaining?

The Saudis can’t keep to up with their own truth doctoring.

Asiri: We verify every intell info, Impossible to targeted non military target. Every strike data is documented
@lntlCrimCourt

On October 14, the Saudi Press Agency issued a statement in which Riyadh admits to the strike – after it very publicly claimed no attack was ever authorized that day, blaming “bad intelligence” for the massacre.

And then the story went on a tangent. “Because of non-compliance with coalition rules of engagement and procedures, and the issuing of incorrect information, a coalition aircraft wrongly targeted the location, resulting in civilian deaths and injuries,” the Saudi investigations team said.

And the coup de grace: “Appropriate action … must be taken against those who caused the incident, and … compensation must be offered to the families of the victims.”

Here is what the Saudi government is really saying:

“Hadi’s loyal idiots stole the keys to our jet, and then they flew out of the kingdom without authorization, bombed the Yemeni capital because they felt like it, and then returned the plane hoping no one would notice.”

Come on now! Are we considering what this line entails?

Did the kingdom suffer a global stroke? Did daddy misplace his plane now?

Those are the guys our governments are selling weapons to. Let’s just hope their planes don’t get their GPS mixed up and bomb another country by mistake.

So here is an idea, invest in a good anti-theft system, get yourself some radars, and make sure no disgruntled Yemeni wannabe unelected president roams around your war toys.

Now, to the real question: what are we going to do about Saudi Arabia’s insane behaviour?
