Al-Quds Brigades Announce General Mobilization to Defend Detainees in ‘Israeli’ Occupation Prisons

By Staff

Secretary General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad resistance movement in Occupied Palestine Ziad al-Nakhala asserted that the movement won’t leave its sons as victims in the arms of the enemy inside the occupation prisons, and therefore will be by their side and back them up as much as it can, “even if that requires going to a war for their good.”

“No agreement or anything else will prevent us from doing so,” al-Nakhala added in a brief statement on Wednesday evening.

For its part, al-Quds Brigades, the Islamic Jihad military wing, announced in a statement the general mobilization among its fighters.

“We are completely poised and at full readiness after we had received the declaration of the SG about the conditions our heroic detainees are being exposed to inside the occupation prisons with a big responsibility”, it added.

The Palestinian Prisoner’s Club had asserted earlier that part of the Islamic Jihad detainees have started a hunger strike, as they are asking the occupation prisons administration to halt its increased, cruel measures it had imposed on them and that mainly aim at the organizational structure of the Islamic Jihad through current measures.

The leading body of the Islamic Jihad Movement asserted that its resistance fighters in all the prisons are on a hunger strike entitled “The battle of defending the heritage of the detainee’s movement and its organizational structure.”

The commission pointed out that ending the strike won’t be possible unless a consultation takes place between the members of the highest leadership commission, the Representation Commission of the Islamic Jihad, the chief wardens, and the General Consultative Council.

It also called for the return of the members of Islamic Jihad to the sections, cells, and places of detention they had been in before September 6, along with assembling them in Ramon, Majdo, and Ofer prisons in three sections only.

 34 عامًا على انطلاقة "الجهاد".. تأكيد على المقاومة حتى النصر

تحت شعار “جهادنا حرية وانتصار”، تُحيي حركة الجهاد الإسلامي في فلسطين هذا العام الذكرى الـ34 لانطلاقتها الجهادية. 

القيادات والحركات الفلسطينية باركت لحركة الجهاد هذا اليوم، مؤكدة وحدة الصف الفلسطيني بوجه العدو المحتل. 

قيادات “الجهاد”

وبالمناسبة، قال الأمين العام لحركة الجهاد الإسلامي زياد النخالة إن “ما حدث بعد نفق الحرية يؤكد للعدو مرة أخرى أن هذه الأرض لنا وأن العدو إلى زوال”. 

ولفت النخالة إلى أن “هؤلاء القتلة الصهاينة وجب قتالهم فإما حياة كريمة لنا أو ذل مستدام”، مشيرًا إلى أن “هذا العام شهدنا رفضًا لكل محاولات العدو لتهجير أهلنا في الشيخ جراح وحي سلوان”. 

النخالة اعتبر أنه “المحزن أكثر هو تمدد الصهيونية في المنطقة العربية بشكل لم يحلم به مؤسسو الصهيونية”. 

وقال: “نحن أكثر وعيًا بالمشروع الصهيوني فلنقف جميعًا شعبًا واحدًا وإرادة واحدة”، لافتًا إلى أن “المشروع الرسمي الفلسطيني أقصر من قامة الشهداء”.

وأشار إلى “أننا موعودون بالنصر والعدو محكوم بالخروج من فلسطين وعلينا أن نخرج من الغمغمة السياسية”. 

ووفقًا للنخالة، فإن “بعض الأنظمة العربية يأخذ خطابنا للارتماء في المشروع الصهيوني الأميركي”، مضيفًا أنه “إذا لم نفعل ذلك سيبقى الاحتلال وسيتمدد لذلك يجب أن نراهن على شعبنا ومقاتلينا”.

ورأى الأمين العام لـ”الجهاد” أن “معركة سيف القدس كشفت هشاشة الاحتلال وأحيت الأمل لدى شعبنا بأن الانتصار على العدو ممكن”، مشيرًا إلى أنه “أصبح واضحًا للعالم أن مهرجانات التطبيع والسلام الكاذب وافتتاح السفارات لن تغير حقائق التاريخ”.

النخالة أكد أنه “رغم التحديات نراهن على ثبات أهلنا في القدس في التصدي لاقتحامات المستوطنين للأقصى”، قائلًا إن “ما تمر به قضيتنا الفلسطينية من تحديات لا يمنعنا من أن نرى بوادر أمل من أن الانتصار قريب”.

كما شدد على أن “شعبنا شعب مقاوم ومرابط ولم يبخل يومًا في تقديم التضحيات من أجل فلسطين ويواجه أعتى احتلال”. في المقابل “هناك من يراهن على تسويق الوهم في إمكانية إحداث اختراق لدى ذلك الاحتلال”، موجهًا “التحية إلى الأسرى ولا سيما منهم أسرى حركة الجهاد الإسلامي”.

كذلك وجه التحية إلى أبطال نفق الحرية وإلى الأسيرات اللواتي وصفهن بأنهن نجمات على جبين الأمة، مؤكدًا “وحدة قوى المقاومة في فلسطين والمنطقة وحماية هذه الوحدة”.

وشدد الأمين العام على “التمسك بفلسطين كل فلسطين وعلى أن المقاومة خيارنا”، مجددًا رفضه الدائم لكل مشاريع التطبيع والاستسلام مهما بلغ عدد الدول المتورطة فيها.

ممثل “حركة الجهاد الإسلامي” في لبنان إحسان عطايا قال من ناحيته إن “ذكرى انطلاقة حركة الجهاد الإسلامي الـ34 لها ميزة ونكهة خاصة، ولا سيما أنها جاءت خلال عام حافل بالإنجازات المهمة التي غيَّرت فيها “سرايا القدس” وفصائل المقاومة الفلسطينية الكثير من المعادلات مع العدو الصهيوني”.

وأكد عطايا لـ”إذاعة القدس” أن “حركة الجهاد ما زالت ثابتة على خيار المقاومة من أجل تحرير كل تراب فلسطين، ولم تتزحزح عن ثوابتها التي انطلقت من أجلها قيد أنملة”.

وأضاف: “حركة الجهاد في مواقفها وإنجازاتها أكدت للجميع أنه لا يمكن بغير المقاومة تحقيق إنجازات نوعية وتفوق على العدو في طريق تحرير القدس وكل فلسطين”.

ولفت إلى أن “الساحات كلها تعمل على قدم وساق من أجل الاحتفال بذكرى الانطلاقة الجهادية المركزية المتزامنة فيما بينها، لتثبت الحركة بذلك مجددًا أنها ما زالت متماسكة، وقادرة على التواصل والتفاعل، ويمكنها إرسال رسائل متعددة الاتجاهات بأنها ستبقى متسلحة بثوابتها، ومتمسكة بمبادئها ومنطلقاتها، وستظل وفية لنهج قادتها المؤسسين، ولدماء شهدائها المخلصين، وكل الذين استشهدوا على طريق القدس وفلسطين”.

وأكد عطايا في ختام حديثه أن “حركة الجهاد في طليعة المقاومين، وتخوض المعركة مع العدو دفاعًا عن فلسطين ومقدساتها، وصونًا لكرامة الأمة وعزتها”، موجهًا “التحية لشهدائنا وجرحانا وأسرانا البواسل في سجون العدو وزنازينه، ولشعبنا الصابر والمقاوم في غزة الأبية الصابرة، الذي لا يزال يدفع أثمانًا باهظة، ويتحمل الحصار الخانق لتمسكه بخيار المقاومة، وكذلك لأهلنا في القدس والضفة وعموم أرضنا المحتلة في انتفاضتهم المباركة بوجه الاحتلال”.

من جهته، أكد القيادي في حركة الجهاد الإسلامي أحمد المدلل أن الحركة من خلال سلاحها البسيط استطاعت أن تدك العدو الصهيوني وتصنع معادلات ردع جديدة.

وأكد المدلل في تصريح لقناة القدس اليوم أن شرف الانطلاقة الجهادية الـ34 أن الدكتور المؤسس فتحي الشقاقي أراد  لفلسطين أن تكون حاضرة دائمًا في صلب الوعي الإسلامي ومن تمحور حوله هم الشباب المسلم.

وقال: “بالرغم من كل ما واجهته حركة الجهاد الإسلامي من حصار ومطاردات إلا أنها أصبحت قوية أكثر”. وأوضح أن كل العمليات البطولية لحركة الجهاد وصولًا لعملية انتزاع الحرية أعادت تأثير الحركة على الطاولة العالمية.

وشدد على أن المقاومة الفلسطينية والشعب الفلسطيني هما السد المنيع أمام العدو الصهيوني الذي لا يفهم سوى لغة القوة. وأكد أنه لا بد من وجود مشروع عربي إسلامي نهضوي في مواجهة المشروع الاستكباري الصهيوني.

وبيّن المدلل أن الكيان الصهيوني يعيش في أسوأ مراحله لأن سلاح المقاومة وعلى رأسه سلاح سرايا القدس استطاع ضرب عمق “تل أبيب”.

قيادات “حماس”

وقد هنأت حركة المقاومة الإسلامية “حماس” حركة الجهاد الإسلامي وأمينها العام، وأعضاء المكتب السياسي، وعموم قادة الحركة وكوادرها بمناسبة ذكرى الانطلاقة الرابعة والثلاثين. 

وقالت “حماس” في بيان إن انطلاقة حركة الجهاد الإسلامي مثلت إضافة نوعية وإسهامًا كبيرًا في تعزيز المقاومة، وردف مشروع التحرير وحق العودة بالقوة والمنعة. 

وأكدت الحركة في هذه المناسبة وحدة الهدف والقواسم المشتركة القائمة على خيار المقاومة ومقارعة المحتل، والمضي في تعزيز وحدة الحال والكلمة، والاستمرار في تحالف متين نحو هدفنا المشترك، تحرير فلسطين من بحرها إلى نهرها. 

ولفتت إلى أن الصورة المشرقة التي جمعت سرايا القدس وكتائب القسام وكل أذرع المقاومة الفلسطينية في مواجهة الاحتلال ستبقى هي الحقيقة الثابتة، والتي لن تتغير حتى تطهير الأرض والمقدسات. 

وأضافت “في هذا اليوم المجيد نقف إجلالًا للقادة الشهداء، المؤسس الدكتور الشهيد فتحي الشقاقي، والدكتور الشهيد رمضان شلح، وكل الشهداء والأسرى من حركة الجهاد الإسلامي الذين برهنوا بالدم على صدق التمسك بمسار التحرير والإصرار عليه، وأنهم لن يقيلوا أو يستقيلوا حتى يتحقق هدف التحرير”. 

وبعثت الحركة بخالص التبريكات والدعوات الصادقات لرفقاء الدرب وشركاء الدم، مجددة معهم عهد الوفاء لفلسطين حتى نلتقي في ساحات المسجد الأقصى المبارك مهللين مكبرين محررين، وما ذلك على الله بعزيز ولا بعيد.

من جانبه، وجه اسماعيل رضوان القيادي في حركة حماس التحية والتهنئة لحركة الجهاد الاسلامي في ذكرى انطلاقتها، مؤكدًا أن انطلاقة حركة الجهاد الإسلامي نوعية وليست زيادة رقمية حيث أضافت رخمًا جديدًا في العمل المقاوم وأبدعت في ميداني السياسة والمقاومة معًا.

وقال رضوان: “نعتز بالعلاقة التي تربط حركة حماس والجهاد الاسلامي، حيث إننا يدٌ واحدة، وسرايا القدس وكتائب القسام تعملان سويا وستواصلان العمل كونهما رفقاء الدم والمصير”، مشددًا على  حرص حركته على تطوير العلاقة الثنائية بين حركتي الجهاد الاسلامي وحماس وكل الوطن حتى الوصول للوحدة الوطنية التي تحافظ على الثوابت حتى تحرير فلسطين.

وأضاف رضوان: “العلاقة التي تربط بين الحركتين قائمة على المبدأ والعقيدة كوننا أصحاب مدرسة ايمانية تستمد أساسها من القرآن والكريم والسنة النبوية، وهي ما يربطنا في الفكر والتربية فنحن نسير على ذات الشوكة”.

وأشار رضوان إلى أن حركتي الجهاد وحماس قدمتا أغلى ما لديهما من رموز القيادة، بالإضافة إلى قيادة الجهاد الإسلامي مؤسسها فتحي الشقاقي وهاني العابد والخواجة وبهاء أبو العطاء وغيرهم من قوافل الشهداء، مؤكدًا أن التحام الحركتين نابع من صدقهما في تحرير فلسطين والتكامل القائم من رأس الهرم إلى باقي المجالات العسكرية والميدانية.

حركة “المجاهدين”

في السياق نفسه، تقدمت “حركة المجاهدين الفلسطينية” ممثلة بأمينها العام أسعد أبو شريعة “أبو الشيخ” وأعضاء مكتب الأمانة العامة وكافة قيادة وكوادر الحركة من إخوة الدين والدرب والجهاد في حركة الجهاد الإسلامي، وعلى رأسهم القائد زياد النخالة الأمين العام للحركة وأعضاء مكتبها السياسي وكوادرها، بخالص التهاني والتبريكات في ذكرى انطلاقتهم الرابعة والثلاثين.

وقالت حركة المجاهدين في بيان لها إن الانطلاقة أضافت زخمًا جهاديًا لمسيرة النضال الفلسطيني وللحركة الإسلامية في فلسطين، فكانت معلمًا بارزًا في مشروع التحرير والعودة، وقدمت رصيدًا كبيرًا في مسيرة الفكر والبندقية.

واعتبرت أن هذه المناسبة الجهادية أكدت الروابط الوثيقة التي تجمع مجاهدي الحركتين ومقاتلي سرايا القدس وكتائب المجاهدين والمشوار الطويل من التنسيق والعمل المشترك لنؤكد مضينا في تعزيز روابط الشراكة والتحالف نحو تحرير فلسطين من بحرها إلى نهرها وانتزاع كل الحقوق.

وشددت على ضرورة تعزيز التعاضد بين فصائل المقاومة كجسم فلسطيني أصيل يعبر عن ارادة الشعب في التحرر والخلاص من المحتل.

حركة “الأحرار” 

بدورها، هنأت حركة الأحرار حركة الجهاد الإسلامي في الذكرى الـ34 لانطلاقتها الجهادية، مؤكدة أنها امتداد لمسيرة من الجهاد والعطاء في خدمة مشروع المقاومة

وقالت حركة الأحرار إن حركة الجهاد الإسلامي شكَّلت عنوانًا من عناوين الجهاد والبطولة وركيزة أساسية في ريادة مسيرة نضال شعبنا وإضافة نوعية لفصائل المقاومة الفلسطينية.

واستذكرت الحركة قادتها الكرام المؤسس الدكتور فتحي الشقاقي والأمين العام السابق د.رمضان عبد الله شلح وقافلة كبيرة من الشهداء، متمنية لحركة الجهاد دوام الرفعة والتقدم والارتقاء والثبات على خطى الشهداء.

حركة “فتح”

بالموازاة، هنأ عباس زكي عضو اللجنة المركزية لحركة فتح الأمين العام لحركة الجهاد الاسلامي القائد زياد النخالة ومكتبها السياسي وكوادرها بذكرة الانطلاقة الجهادية الـ34، مشيدًا بالحفاظ على نهج الحركة القائم على الثوابت ونضالها من أجل استعادة الأرض دون أن تسأل عن مكانتها في الحصص.

وقال زكي: “كرم الله حركة الجهاد الاسلامي أن يكون قائدها الأول شهيدًا، ونحن نراهن على الحركة التي تعلقت وملأت الفراغ وأصبحت قوة لا يستهان بها في ظل أوضاع غاية في التعقيد”.

وأشاد زكي بالأمين العام لحركة الجهاد الاسلامي القائد زياد النخالة لحفاظه على الإرث العظيم بعناده وإصراراه على الثوابت التي تُشكل طموح شعبنا.

وشدد زكي على أن العدو يقف حائرًا أمام حركة تكرس الوعي والفهم الذي انطلقت على أساسه بالإضافة إلى دورها المعاصر، مشيرًا إلى أن الاحتلال يستهدف أسرى الجهاد الإسلامي، بعد أن قام ستة من نخبتها بحفر نفق داخل سجن جلبوع واصطحاب المارد الفتحاوي ليعطي العارضة رسالة لنا جميعا أن الوحدة هي الأساس للقضاء على الاحتلال.

Grave Repercussions against Palestinian Detainees behind ‘Israeli’ Bars: Incursion, Repression, and Burning Cells

September 9, 2021

By Staff

The Palestinian Prisoner’s Club said that what is taking place inside ‘Israeli’ prisons is a real war being waged by the administration of the occupation prisons on defenseless detainees. The information received successively prove that there will be an open confrontation as long as the prisons’ administration is escalating the situation.

Grave Repercussions against Palestinian Detainees behind ‘Israeli’ Bars: Incursion, Repression, and Burning Cells

Heavily armed repression units and special units of the occupation army started large-scale incursion and repression operations in multiple prisons, most notably in al-Naqab and Rimon prisons.

The Palestinian Prisoner’s Club said that the detainees had started confronting the prisons administration and its forces with different approaches, most notably when a group of them set numerous cells on fire in section “6” in al-Naqab Prison. According to the latest information, the prison’s administration has started transferring all the section-six detainees to a yet unknown destination, and continued to break-in to other sections.

Detainees of all organizations announced their refusal to the threats they are being exposed to, especially concerning the attempt of the prison’s administration to transfer and distribute the detainees of the Islamic Jihad Palestinian resistance movement, trying to knock down the organizational structures in the prisons, which is considered by the detainees as the most dangerous step.

A major incursion was carried out by the repression units in the Rimon Prison, during which special occupation units were called in along with the special units that usually practice repression and incursion inside prisons.

The Gilboa Prison administration, which has been facing the most violent confrontation in the past two days, suppressed the detainees in section “3” and transferred them. That occurred after the detainee Malek Hamed poured hot water on a warden in response to the prison’s administration measures of transferring the prisoners to Shatta Prison, following another measurement of transferring the detainees of section “2” in Gilboa Prison to numerous prisons.

Confrontation and high tension are also taking place in Ofer Prison after threats of evacuating four cells in section 22 where detainees of the Islamic Jihad are, and distributing them on the other cells in the prison. Additionally, the Ofer Prison’s administration isolated 34 detainees in section 18 after they had been transferred from Gilboa.

It’s worth mentioning that after six detainees managed to break out of Gilboa, the prison’s administration imposed a series of measures, presented by carrying out repression, transference, and inspection operations especially in Gilboa Prison, along with closing all the detainees’ sections in prisons, reducing the time spent in the courtyard, closing the facilities such as the sink, and depriving the detainees from the Canteen [a store where they buy what they need]. It also threatened that further measures will be taken.

The Palestinian Prisoner’s Club urged the international community to intervene quickly in order to put an end to the dangerous attack on the detainees. It also stressed that escalating the situation would lead to more dangerous consequences, and again held the occupation fully accountable for the detainees’ lives and destiny.

Security Failures, Sleeping Guard: How Did Six Palestinians Manage to Escape Heavily-guarded ‘Israeli’ Jail?

Security Failures, Sleeping Guard: How Did Six Palestinians Manage to Escape Heavily-guarded ‘Israeli’ Jail?

By Staff, Haaretz

The embarrassing ‘Israeli’ failure on the security level inside the occupation entity’s prisons continued to be the subject to mock the Zionist establishment by its own media.

In a commentary published by ‘Israeli’ Haaretz newspaper, Josh Breiner asked: What happened at Gilboa Prison? Why was there an open space under the prison? And where did the prisoners go? This is what we know so far about the high-profile prison break.

The escape of six security prisoners from Gilboa Prison on Monday exposed a raft of failures in the work of the Prison Service. This begins with senior officials who apparently learned no lessons from an attempted breakout in the same prison seven years ago, as well as the failure to operate electronic measures where required, and the guard who fell asleep in the watchtower. Haaretz is attempting to sort through these issues and raise questions that need to be answered so that this does not recur.

What happened?

Between 1:20 and 1:40 A.M. on the night between Sunday and Monday, Rosh Hashana eve, six security prisoners escaped from cell No. 5 in Wing 2 of the prison in Jezreel Valley. The six escaped through a tunnel they dug from within their cell, apparently over the last six months. All the escaped convicts – five members of Islamic Jihad and one Fatah member – are residents of the nearby Jenin area. On the eve of the break, two of these prisoners were moved to the cell from which the escape took place, so they could break out as well.

It is believed the prisoners removed a metal grate that was welded into the floor of the toilet and then discovered an empty space underneath it, created when the prison was built. This space led to an area which was 2.5 meters [8.2 feet] outside the prison wall, which was close to their cell. The length of the tunnel they passed through is 30 meters, at the end of which they dug an escape shaft.

A preliminary investigation shows that the prisoners emerged one by one, waiting beside the shaft without being noticed by guards or surveillance cameras. The guard on a tower right above the shaft had fallen asleep.

At this point, the six men started moving away from the prison. Some of them were spotted by a taxi driver when they crossed a road. The driver called police at around 1:50 A.M., which led police to alert the Prison Service 25 minutes later.

Only around 3:30 A.M. was it discovered that the prisoners had escaped. Suspicions have it that the prisoners coordinated their escape with people outside the prison, who came to the area assisted by cellphones. According to police investigations, after walking three kilometers they reached a vehicle and left the area. The Shin Bet and police believe that the prisoners, or some of them, reached the village of Na’ura, where they stayed for 20 minutes, changing clothes and buying food.

Where did they go?

The main concern of police is that the six are still in “Israeli” territory, hidden in houses or outdoors, waiting for an opportunity to flee. The fact that four of the men have life sentences raises concerns that they will try to carry out resistance operations.

Another possibility is that the six have fled to the West Bank. They know the area well, especially the nearby Jenin area from which they came. Four of them have been in prison for over 20 years, so the chances that they will stay in the ‘Israeli’-occupied territories, which they’re not familiar with, are less likely.

A preferred option for ‘Israel’ is that they reached hiding places in the West Bank, given the security and intelligence control ‘Israel’s’ forces have in that area. However, apprehending them there will almost certainly entail violent confrontations with the ‘Israeli’ military personnel.

Another possibility that police believe to be highly likely is that the prisoners fled to Jordan or another country. That would make it harder for ‘Israel’ to return them to prison.

Why was there an open space under the prison?

Gilboa Prison was built in 2004 near the older Shata Prison, to allow for incarcerating a large number of security prisoners during the second intifada. Due to the need to erect it hastily, construction was expedited so that the prison’s wards were built on concrete pillars, with open spaces underneath. The prison’s engineering plan was published on the site of the architects who had planned it. It’s not known if the prisoners used this knowledge, but this is clearly a security failure of the Prison Service, which did not remove the plan once it went online.

What sanctions were imposed on other security prisoners?

After the breakout, the conditions of 4,000 security prisoners were further restricted. Thus, the time they are allowed to be in the yard was reduced from four hours to one hour a day. Many searches have been conducted in their cells, with Islamic Jihad prisoners moved to other wings, despite the ideological and religious differences between prisoners, something that is creating a lot of tension.

On Wednesday Islamic Jihad prisoners torched their cells at Ketziot and Ramon prisons, clashing with guards. They were protesting the intent to move them to other prisons following the escape from Gilboa.

دعماً للأسرى... الفصائل الفلسطينية تدعو لجمعة غضب

دعت فصائل فلسطينية، اليوم، إلى اعتبار الجمعة المقبل «يوم غضب» ضد الاحتلال الإسرائيلي، بسبب انتهاكاته بحق الأسرى في السجون بعد عملية فرار ستة أسرى من سجن «جلبوع» شديد التحصين.

وقال عضو اللجنة التنفيذية لمنظمة التحرير، واصل أبو يوسف، إنه تم التوافق بين جميع الفصائل والقوى، على اعتبار الجمعة «يوم غضب» ومواجهة من الاحتلال الإسرائيلي على نقاط التماس، «دعما للأسرى ورفضاً لسياسة التضييق والانتهاكات الإسرائيلية بحقهم».

وفي تصريح نقلته وكالة «الأناضول» للأنباء عن منسّق شؤون الفصائل الفلسطينية، أبو يوسف، قال الأخير إن «المطلوب هو التفاف شعبي كبير في كافة المحافظات، بما فيها مدينة القدس، وقطاع غزة، نصرةً للأسرى». وتابع: «قضية الأسرى توحّد الشعب الفلسطيني في كافة مناطق تواجده».

وندد أبو يوسف بالممارسات الإسرائيلية بحقّ الأسرى داخل السجون، وتجاه عائلات المعتقلين الفارّين، مذكّراً بأن «القيادة الفلسطينية تُجري اتصالات مع جهات دولية ومؤسسات ومنظمات حقوق الإنسان، لوقف الانتهاكات والإجراءات الإسرائيلية بحق الأسرى».

Islamic Jihad Warns “Israel” against “Collective Punishment” of Palestinian Inmates

 SEPTEMBER 8, 2021

Islamic Jihad Warns “Israel” against “Collective Punishment” of Palestinian Inmates

By Staff, Agencies

The Islamic Jihad strongly warned the “Israeli” regime against trying to punish other Palestinian prisoners over the recent escape of six inmates from a maximum-security “Israeli” jail.

The Palestinian resistance movement issued the warning in a statement on Tuesday after Palestinian sources revealed that the regime was administering “collective punishment” to prisoners, including some of Jihad’s senior figures, after the jailbreak.

The prisoners, five of whom belong to the group, escaped the Gilboa Prison in the northern part of the occupied territories through an underground tunnel. The facility has earned notoriety as the “Israeli” version of the Guantanamo prison.

Despite conducting a thorough search for an entire day, the “Israeli” police service has failed so far to find any clues about the escapees’ current whereabouts.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian Wafa news agency said the regime had begun taking out the embarrassment on other Palestinian inmates through a number of measures.

It has transferred more than a dozen prisoners from Gilboa’s second ward to another “Israeli” prison and stopped allowing prisoners’ access to television. The regime has also taken five of the Islamic Jihad’s leaders to Gilboa’s interrogation center, and begun rummaging every nook and cranny throughout the prison.

The resistance group said it was monitoring the situation at “Israeli” prisons, advising Tel Aviv against taking “retaliatory measures” against the prisoners.

The movement said it would not leave its prisoners alone and noted that whatever “‘Israeli’ terrorist action” against them was to be met with its due response.

“The ‘Israeli’ regime should know this that violations targeting the prisoners are our redline,” it said, adding, “We are prepared to and capable of defending our prisoners and have several options at our disposal to do so.”

Palestinian Prisoners Set Fire to Cells in Response to Suppression

By Al Mayadeen

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Media Office says that Section 6 detainees in the Naqab Prison set fire to their cells in response to the brutal campaign of suppression the Israeli occupation is carrying out against them.

    The Naqab Prison, also known as “Ktzi’ot” Prison, is in a state of alert after a large number of Israeli occupation soldiers raided it.

    The Palestinian Prisoners’ Media Office said the detainees in Section 6 set their cells on fire in response to the Israeli occupation’s brutal suppression campaign against them.

    The Palestinian Prisoners’ Club said that Naqab Prison is in a state of chaos after Section 6 caught on fire, which was done in protest of the prison administration’s violations, harassment, and mistreatment.

    Al Mayadeen correspondent reported that the Israeli occupation is also assaulting the Palestinian detainees in Megiddo Prison.

    Muhjat Al-Quds, a foundation concerned with Palestinian detainees and martyrs, obtained a letter written by PIJ detainees from Naqab Prison in which they said they would burn any room they are taken out of. This was in response to the administration illegally transferring detainees within the prison.

    This comes two days after six Palestinian prisoners broke out of the Gilboa Prison through a tunnel they dug under the Israeli prison. This was followed by Israeli escalation, especially against prisoners, as the occupation has increased its oppression of Palestinian prisoners, going as far as depriving them of their daily food portions.

    Al-Quds Brigades, PIJ’s military wing, said they would not allow for the constant violation of the detainees’ rights, asserting that they would neither abandon their detainees nor let them down.

    Palestinian Prisoners Rebel against Israeli Punitive Measures, Islamic Jihad Calls for Confronting Enemy

    The Palestinian prisoners rebelled against the punitive measures taken by the Israeli occupation authorities in light of Gilboa escape operation, incinerating the dungeons at Negev jail.

    The Islamic Jihad Resistance Movement pledged to protect the Palestinian prisoners from the Zionist oppression, calling on all the Palestinians to clash with the Zionist enemy at all the contact points in the occupied West Bank.

    The Israeli occupation has deployed full weight of its security arsenal to capture the six Palestinians who managed early Monday to break out of high-security Gilboa prison.

    Manhunt for the six Palestinians continued into third day on Wednesday, with Palestinian and Israeli media reporting arrest campaign across the West Bank.

    ملعقة غور بيسان تحفر في قبر بن غوريون

    محمد صادق الحسيني

    قد لا نضيف جديداً، في كلامنا التالي، في خضمّ هذا البحر من التحليلات والتوقعات والقراءات، المتعلقة بالعملية الفدائية الفلسطينية الأسطورية، التي اخترق بها ستة فدائيين فلسطينيين قلب بن غوريون في قبره، إضافة إلى قلوب كافة قادة أجهزة الأمن «الإسرائيلية»، العسكرية منها والأمنية الاستخباراتية.

    لذا فإننا سنقتصر على الإضاءة على بعض الحقائق وتوجيه بعض الأسئلة لقادة العدو الأمنيين والعسكريين والسياسيين.

    ولنبدأ بالإضاءات:

    الأمر الأول: هو أن هذه العملية المحكمة التخطيط والتنفيذ، تتفوق بآلاف المرات، على كلّ العمليات الإجرامية التي نفذها جهازي الموساد والشاباك «الإسرائيليين»، منذ إعلان قيام الكيان وحتى الآن. بخاصة أن إمكانيات هؤلاء الشباب الستة اقتصرت على ملعقة طعام فارغة تم تهريبها لهم إلى داخل السجن، بينما تبلغ موازنة تشغيل العملاء، في جهاز الموساد وحده 15 مليار دولار سنوياً.

    الأمر الثاني: هو أن عملية تحرر الفدائيين الفلسطينيين الستة هذه أكثر تعقيداً بما لا يقاس من عملية الموساد «الإسرائيلي»، التي نفذت لاغتيال العالم النووي الإيراني المدني، فخري زاده. إذ إن فخري زاده كان يستخدم سيارة عادية جداً، غير مصفحة، ولا تخضع لأي إجراءات أمنية عسكرية خاصة. بالتالي فإنّ استهداف مثل هكذا سيارة مدنية واغتيال من بداخلها لم يكن لا بالعمل الخارق ولا البطولي.

    الأمر الثالث: إن عملية الفدائيين الفلسطينيين، الذين حرروا أنفسهم من سجن أو حصن جلبوع المدرع، كانت عملية فائقة الدقة في التخطيط والتنفيذ وفي حصن عسكري أمني «إسرائيلي» أرضيته مصفحة بصفائح الميركافا، شارك في بنائه «أشهر» المهندسين الأوروبيين المتخصصين في بناء السجون الحصينة. وكانوا للأسف إيرلنديين، من أذناب الاستعمار البريطاني.

    فهل يستويان..!؟

    الأمر الرابع: هل أنتم متأكدون أنّ المجندة «الإسرائيلية» العشرينية، روتَم روزين هيك، كانت نائمة أثناء نوبة حراستها، كما اتهمها مسؤولون «إسرائيليون» بالمسؤولية عن نجاح الفدائيين في تحرير أنفسهم، أو أنها كانت تعيش لحظات أونلاين، وهي تغازل عشيقها «آڤي بوحطوط»، الموجود في مدينة راس العين الفلسطينية المحتلة عام 1948.

    وهذا يعني أنها كانت في عالم غير عالم السجن، الذي يُفترض فيها أن تحرسه، وهو سجن جلبوع القريب من مدينة بيسان الفلسطينية المحتله عام 1948 (في الغور الشمالي) حيث تصل درجات الحرارة هناك إلى أكثر من 40 درجة مئوية في مثل هذا الوقت من العام.

    وعليه فإنّ ما كانت تقوم به تلك المجندة أخطر بكثير من النوم خلال مناوبة الحراسة الليلية…!

     إنها حقيقة تظهر انعدام أي دافع، لدى عناصر العدو العسكرية والأمنية، للقيام بواجباتهم المكلفين بها. وهو ما يعبّر عن حالة عدم اكتراث لا بالدولة ولا بأمنها، وعن حالة انهيار شامل في الروح المعنوية لجيش الاحتلال ومنتسبي أجهزته الأمنية. وهذا ما أكده مفتش الجيش «الإسرائيلي» السابق، الجنرال إسحق بريك، في حديث له مع موقع ميدا «الإسرائيلي» قبل يومين فقط.

    أما الأسئلة الموجهة، إلى قادة العدو العسكريين والأمنيين، فهي كثيرة جداً نختصرها بالأسئلة التالية:

    أولاً: بعد مرور 48 ساعة على نجاح الفدائيين الفلسطينيين في تحرير أنفسهم، من سجن جلبوع الإسرائيلي، هل تعرفون ما إذا كانت عملية التخطيط والتنفيذ هي عملية اقتصرت على جهود الأسرى الستة فقط أم أن جهات «عليا» قد ساعدتهم في التخطيط والتنفيذ (أونلاين) من الخارج؟

    ثانياً: بعد مرور كلّ هذا الوقت هل تعرفون كيف تمكن هؤلاء الفدائيين من استخدام الهاتف النقال، الذي تم تهريبه لهم إلى داخل السجن؟

    أليس لديكم أجهزة تشويش إلكتروني، لمنع استخدام الهواتف المهرّبة إلى داخل السجن، تلك الأجهزة التي تم تركيبها حول سجنَي جلبوع وشطة المتلاصقين، قبل أكثر من عام، فلماذا لم تتمكن هذه الأجهزة من تعطيل استخدام الهاتف الفدائي النقال؟

    ثالثاً: هل أنتم متأكدون من أنّ «إسرائيل» هي دولة رائدة في الصناعات الهندسية الدقيقة (هاي تيك)؟ وهل تذكرون أن حزب الله، وقبل 24 عاماً، قد تمكن من قرصنة مسيّرة القيادة التي كنتم تستخدمونها لتحضير عملية الإغارة البحرية على موقع في أنصارية/ جنوب لبنان؟ اعتقدتم خطأً أنه موقع لحزب الله؟

    وهل تذكرون ما الذي حصل للقوة التابعة لوحدة ميثكال (قوات خاصة تابعة لهيئة الأركان الإسرائيلية)؟ كان مقاتلو حزب الله بانتظارهم وأبادوا القوة كاملة في ما عدا فرداً واحداً ترك على قيد الحياة ليخبرهم بتفاصيل ما حصل مع تلك القوة.

    رابعاً: كان ذلك قبل ربع قرن… فكيف هو الوضع الآن؟ وهل من فارق بين إمكانيات حزب الله وإيران وسورية وحركة حماس والجهاد، في ذلك الزمن، وإمكانياتهم اليوم؟

    خامساً: هل سمعتم عن الأسلحة الكهرومغناطيسية، يا أرباب الهاي تيك وأجهزة التجسس، وهل سمع قادتكم بهذه الأسلحة؟ وهل تعرفون شيئاً عنها وعمَّن يملكها؟ هل تعرفون أن النسخة المتنقلة منها (الموبايل) تحمل في حقيبة مدرسية صغيرة؟ وأنها قادرة على إرسال موجات كهرومغناطيسية، عالية الدقة؛ أيّ نقطية؛ قادرة على تدمير قاعدة جوية كاملة أو قطعة بحرية كبيرة أو موقع قيادة وسيطرة أو مركز عمليات واتصالات وما إلى ذلك…

    فهل يا ترى كانت هي السلاح الذي قام بتعطيل أجهزة التشويش الإلكتروني المزروعة حول سجن جلبوع؟

    سادساً: وهل أنتم غافلون عن قدرة المقاومة، من خلال امتلاكها وسائل قتالية جديدة، قد لا تكون تملكها أجهزتكم العسكرية والأمنية، يا أرباب الهاي تيك وأجهزة التجسس البائسة؛ كونها كشفت في كل أنحاء العالم؛ نقول: هل أنتم غافلون عن قدرة المقاومة على حماية أسراها المحررين؟

    وهل تعتقدون أنكم ستحققون نصراً في ما لو نجحتم في اغتيالهم أو أسرهم مجدداً؟

    اعترفوا من الآن… لقد خسرتم المعركة والبقية تفاصيل.

    ولكن السؤال الأهمّ هو:

    سابعاً: هل أنتم جاهزون لتلقي مفاجأة من العيار الثقيل، في القريب العاجل، على الأرجح؟

    يوم تشهدون ما لا عين رأت ولا أذن سمعت؟

    بانتظار المزيد من المفاجآت من جغرافيا آخر الزمان!

    نترككم في خيبتكم تعمهون.

    بعدنا طيبين قولوا الله…

    Following Escape, Israel Imposes Restrictions on Palestinian Prisoners

    September 7, 2021

    The Israeli Prisons Authority has imposed punitive measures on Palestinian detainees, the Prisoners’ Information Office warned this morning, adding that this could lead to a “serious escalation” in tensions in jails.

    Occupation authorities have reduced the time prisoners are allowed to spend outside to one hour and reduced the number of detainees in the prison yard at any one time. It has also closed the prisoners’ shop, from which they buy essentials including soap, and moved prisoners who are members of the Islamic Jihad movement around into different prisons.

    Lawyers and family visits have now been banned, the Palestinian Liberation Organisation’s Prisoners’ Affairs Authority said.

    The Prisoners’ Information Office stressed that “prisons are on the verge of a dangerous escalation in light of the punitive measures imposed by the prison administration on prisoners.”

    Spokesman for the Prisoners’ Affairs Authority, Hassan Abd Rabbo, confirmed that the occupation authorities transferred all prisoners from Gilboa prison to a number of other prisons, and placed them in solitary confinement.

    These measures come after six Palestinian detainees, five of whom were members of Islamic Jihad, escaped from Israel’s high-security

    New “Israeli” Failure: Six Palestinian Prisoners Escape Prison through Tunnel

    New “Israeli” Failure: Six Palestinian Prisoners Escape Prison through Tunnel

    By Staff, Agencies 

    In a new severe slap to the apartheid “Israeli” entity, six Palestinian prisoners managed to escape from Gilboa Prison in the West Bank overnight Sunday. 

    “Israeli” officials are concerned that the six will try to carry out attacks or escape the Zionist entity. Amongst the prisoners is Zakaria Zabidi, the former leader of Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade.

    Prison officials surmise that the six escaped via a tunnel leading outside the prison walls that they had managed to dig over the past few months. The Shin Bet reported the inmates coordinated with collaborators outside the prison using a smuggled cellphone and had an escape car waiting for them. They were first noticed by local farmers who notified the police. 

    It was discovered that the six prisoners had escaped at around 4 A.M. during a head count.

    An investigation into the incident is underway, said the Prisons Service. An official from the “Israel” Prison Service described the breach as “a major security and intelligence failure.” 

    In a statement made shortly after the event the Islamic Jihad called the escape “heroic” and added that it will “shock the ‘Israeli defense’ system.” Hamas spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum praised the prisoners saying “the escape proves the bravery of these prisoners, achieving freedom despite such strict security measures. It’s a heroic and impressive action.”

    6 Palestinian Prisoners Break Out of Gilboa Prison

    The Israeli occupation has announced that six Palestinian prisoners broke out of Gilboa Prison, which is under heavy security, at dawn today, Monday, through a tunnel dug under the prison.

    6 Palestinian prisoners dig a tunnel and break out of prison

    The Israeli newspaper Haaretz confirmed that six Palestinian prisoners managed to escape from Gilboa Prison near the occupied city of Beit She’an, at dawn today, Monday. 

    According to the newspaper, this prison is considered one of the most fortified Israeli prisons.

    The Israeli occupation announced that police forces launched a manhunt in search of the prisoners at large. They are undergoing a full-scale search operation in the area crowded with villages and towns, which is also close to the border with the northern West Bank and Jordan. 

    Reports state that six prisoners dug a tunnel to break free from Gilboa prison and were reported missing around 4 am.

    Israeli media websites published pictures of the tunnel that the escaped prisoners dug and escaped through, along with pictures of the prisoners. 

    A real prison break 

    A source from the Islamic Jihad Movement told Al Mayadeen that Mahmoud Abdullah al-Ardah is the “prince” of the prisoners in Gilboa prison and the one who led the prisoners’ escape. 

    The source added that the prisoners’ escape constitutes a severe blow to the Israeli army and the entire regime in “Israel”. 

    He described the prison break as a “heroic” move, which will cause a severe shock to the Israeli security system.

    According to Israeli sources, the prisoners who managed to escape through a tunnel are Zakaria al-Zubaidi, Munadel Yaqoub Nafi’at, Muhammad Qassem Aardeh, Yaqoub Mahmoud Qadri, Ayham Fouad Kamamji, Mahmoud Abdullah Aardeh, knowing that the last five are members of the Islamic Jihad Movement.

    “Israel” keeps about 4,850 prisoners in its prisons, including 41 female prisoners, 225 children, and 540 administrative detainees, according to institutions specializing in prisoners’ affairs.

    It is worth mentioning that after several escape attempts, prison guards made a decision to keep all Islamic Jihad Movement members on top floors, not ground floors. 

    Gilboa Prison under the radar

    Gilboa Prison is located in northern Palestine and was newly established under the supervision of Irish experts.  

    It was opened in 2004, near Shatta prison in the Bisan area of 1948.

    The family of liberated Palestinian prisoner, Maher Al-Akhras, demonstrated alongside dozens of Palestinians in Bireh, 15 km from occupied Jerusalem, to demand the release of their kin whom the Palestinian Authority Security Forces have arrested during a protest.

    The protest was against the assassination of Palestinian human rights activist, Nizar Banat, in Ramallah.

    Palestinian Islamic Jihad denounced the attacks carried out by the Palestinian National Security Forces, calling the assault on liberated prisoner Maher Al-Akhras ‘shameful’ to the Palestinian Authority.

    PIJ also denounced the PA’s heavy-handed suppression of the Palestinians, who went on a march demanding for the killers of Nizar Banat to be held accountable.

    Additionally, the resistance movement called on the Palestinian Authority to free all prisoners and to stop violating rights and liberties.

    «انتقامٌ» معجّل من الخضري ورفاقه | «حماس» ــ السعودية: طريق مسدود

    الإثنين 9 آب 2021

    «انتقامٌ» معجّل من الخضري ورفاقه | «حماس» ــ السعودية: طريق مسدود
    كان رئيس المكتب السياسي لـ»حماس» ناشد الملك سلمان الإفراج عن معتَقلي الحركة (أ ف ب )

    بعد بروز مؤشّرات، خلال الفترة القصيرة الماضية، إلى إمكانية حلحلة السعودية ملفّ معتَقلي حركة «حماس» لديها، خصوصاً في ظلّ التحوّلات الأخيرة في السياسة الخارجية للمملكة، جاءت أحكام الأمس، القاسية والصادمة، بحقّ أولئك المعتقلين، لتطمس أيّ أمل في هذا الإطار. هكذا، انتقمت الرياض من محمد الخضري ورفاقه، بعدما باءت محاولاتها «قبْض» ثمن للإفراج عنهم، مرتبطٍ بعلاقات «حماس» الإقليمية، بالفشل،غزة | بعد مرور عامين على اعتقال كوادر حركة «حماس» في السعودية، وفشل الوساطات العربية ومقترحات صفقات التبادل مع اليمنيين للإفراج عنهم، أصدرت محكمة سعودية، أمس، أحكاماً قاسية – وصلت إلى السجن 22 عاماً بحقّ بعضهم – ضدّ 66 فلسطينياً وأردنياً بتهم الانتماء إلى حركة «حماس» و«دعم الإرهاب». وبحسب مصادر فلسطينية، فقد حكمت المحكمة الجزائية السعودية على كلّ من: محمد العابد بالسجن لـ22 عاماً، ومحمد البنا 20 عاماً، جمال الداهودي 15 عاماً، أيمن صلاح 19 عاماً، محمد أبو الرب 18 عاماً، موسى أبو حسين 4 سنوات، شريف نصر الله 16 عاماً، باسم الكردي 7 سنوات، صالح قفة 5 سنوات، وأيمن العقاد 4 سنوات. كذلك، حكمت على ممثّل «حماس» في السعودية، محمد الخضري، بالسجن 15 عاماً، مع وقف التنفيذ لمدة نصف عام نظراً إلى وضعه الصحّي الصعب، فيما برّأت كلّاً من محمد قديح، أدهم غزال، محمد يعيش، محمد أسعد، محمد رواح. وخلال المحاكمة، منعت السلطات السعودية حضور عوائل المعتقلين، باستثناء شخص واحد من كلّ عائلة، وسط حالات من الإغماء والانهيار بين الأهالي، جرّاء الأحكام الصادمة.

    وجاء إصدار هذه الأحكام بعد وقت قصير من دعوات فلسطينية وأردنية إلى الإفراج عن المعتقلين وإغلاق ملفّهم، فضلاً عن إطلاق رئيس المكتب السياسي لحركة «حماس»، إسماعيل هنية، مناشدة إلى ملك السعودية، سلمان بن عبد العزيز، لإطلاق سراح الأسرى، انطلاقاً ممّا سمّاها «المواقف التاريخية السابقة للمملكة في دعم الشعب الفلسطيني وقضيّته». وعلى رغم ما بدا أنه استبشار فلسطيني بتقريب موعد المحاكمة، خصوصاً إثر بروز مؤشّرات إلى إمكانية إنهاء هذا الملفّ بعد استضافة قناة «العربية» السعودية رئيس إقليم الخارج في «حماس»، خالد مشعل، قبل أسابيع، إلّا أن الأحكام جاءت صادمة للحركة، التي توقّعت، على الأقلّ، أحكاماً مخفّفة عن معتقليها، بل والحكم بالبراءة على بعضهم. وفي هذا الإطار، تقول مصادر في «حماس» لـ«الأخبار» إن الوساطات والمباحثات بين الحركة والسعوديين وصلت إلى طريق مسدود نهاية الشهر الماضي، ليجري تعجيل المحاكمة التي كانت مجدولة في تشرين الأول الماضي، بعد رفض «حماس» ربط ملفّ معتَقليها بقضايا سياسية تتّصل بعلاقات الحركة في المنطقة والإقليم.

    رفضت «حماس» ربط ملفّ معتَقليها بقضايا سياسية تتّصل بعلاقات الحركة في المنطقة والإقليم


    وفي ردود الفعل على الخطوة السعودية، أعلنت حملة «الحرية للخضري والمعتقلين الفلسطينيين في السعودية»، ومعها لجنة المعتقلين الأردنيين في السعودية، أنهما ستستأنفان ضدّ الأحكام الصادرة أمس، وذلك بعد 40 يوماً من النطق بالحكم، وفق ما ينصّ عليه قرار المحكمة. وفي الإطار نفسه، وصف القيادي في حركة «الجهاد الإسلامي»، خضر حبيب، في تصريحات صحافية، الأحكام السعودية ضدّ المعتقلين الفلسطينيين بأنها «سياسية وباطلة ولا سند قانونياً لها، وهي طعنة في خاصرة الشعب الفلسطيني وقضيّته، وتسيء للعلاقات التاريخية بين المملكة والشعب الفلسطيني، ولا تصبّ إلّا في مصلحة الاحتلال».

    أما حركة «حماس» فاستهجنت، في بيان، الأحكام الصادرة «بحق عدد كبير من الإخوة» الفلسطينيين والأردنيين، لافتة إلى أن «هؤلاء لم يقترفوا ما يستوجب هذه الأحكام القاسية وغير المبرّرة، فضلاً عن المحاكمة، فكلّ ما فعلوه هو نصرة قضيتهم وشعبهم الذي ينتمون إليه، من دون أيّ إساءة إلى المملكة وشعبها». ودعت الحركة، القيادة السعودية، إلى «سرعة الإفراج عنهم وإنهاء معاناتهم ومعاناة عائلاتهم التي مضى عليها ما يزيد على السنتين».



    حملة دوليّة لإنهاء الاعتقال الإداري


    أعلنت لجنة للأسرى مُشكَّلة من قِبَل القوى الوطنية والإسلامية والمؤسّسات العاملة في شؤون الأسرى، أمس، انطلاق الحملة الوطنية والدولية للمطالبة بإنهاء الاعتقال الإداري الذي يطال 450 أسيراً فلسطينياً. وفي مؤتمر متزامن بين غزة ورام الله، أُعلن عن الحملة الجديدة من أمام مقرّ «اللجنة الدولية للصليب الأحمر» في غزة، وكذلك مقرّ الأمم المتحدة في رام الله، بمشاركة الفصائل الفلسطينيّة والمؤسّسات الحقوقية المعنيّة بالأسرى ومتضامنين.

    وقال عضو المكتب السياسي لحركة «الجهاد الإسلامي»، خالد البطش: «من غزة المحاصرة، وفي هذا المؤتمر التزامني بين غزة والضفة في (ما يمثّل) موقفاً موحّداً، نعلن عن انطلاق الحملة الوطنية لكسر ملفّ الاعتقال الإداري وإنهاء هذه المعاناة». وأشار البّطش إلى أنّ «الأسرى الفلسطينيين يعانون من قانون الاعتقال الإداري الذي ورثه الاحتلال من الانتداب البريطاني قبل قرابة 100 عام». وطالب «جميع المؤسّسات الحقوقية على مستوى فلسطين والعالم، باتّخاذ خطواتٍ قانونيّةٍ من أجل وقف ذلك الاعتقال»، داعياً «برلمانات الدول العربية والإسلامية والبرلمانات الحرّة في العالم الغربي إلى الوقوف مع أسرانا»، حاضّاً «الجمعية العامة للأمم المتحدة»، أيضاً، على «عقد جلسةٍ طارئةٍ وعاجلة من أجل إنهاء الاعتقال الإداري إلى الأبد».

    وستبدأ الحركة الأسيرة في السجون بخطوات تصعيديّة من أجل كسر هذا النوع من الاعتقال التعسّفي، في وقت يواصل فيه 13 أسيراً إضرابهم المفتوح عن الطعام، من بينهم 12 أسيراً رفضاً لاعتقالهم الإداري. ويُعدّ أوّل مَن بدأ بالإضراب من بين هؤلاء الأسير سالم زيدات من بلدة بني نعيم في الخليل، والمضرب منذ 28 يوماً، لتلحقه مجموعة من الأسرى الذين شرعوا بإضرابات مسانِدة على دفعات، بحسب «نادي الأسير الفلسطيني».

    Palestinian Resistance Groups Ready to Defend Al-Aqsa Mosque

    Jul 20, 2021

    Palestinian Resistance Groups Ready to Defend Al-Aqsa Mosque

    By Staff, Agencies

    Spokesman for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Resistance Movement, Tariq Salmi, said that Palestinian Resistance groups are ready to defend Al-Aqsa Mosque with all their might.

    Reacting to the recent aggressions of Zionists on Al-Aqsa Mosque, Salmi reiterated the readiness of Palestinian Resistance groups to defend the Mosque with utmost power, WAFA News reported.

    He emphasized that the insistence of the Zionist enemy on protecting the attacks of settlers on Al-Aqsa Mosque during these auspicious days, especially on the day of Arafah, is a clear aggression against all Muslims and will hurt the feelings and emotions of every Muslim.

    He also stressed that the goal of these aggressive policies of the Zionist regime is to escalate tensions and destabilize the situation, adding that the colonial project of the Zionist regime is the most dangerous type of aggression. The Zionists only understand the language of force and power.

    Elsewhere in his remarks, Salmi further reminded that Zionists are trying to change the balance of power in their favor.

    It is a matter of fact that the Palestinian Resistance groups are closely monitoring the events happening in Al-Aqsa Mosque and will respond to their attacks.

    The Palestinian Resistance groups can react at appropriate time and place to the Zionist regime, which is in fact responsible for aggravating the situation in occupied lands and territories. The Resistance overthrew former ‘Israeli’ Prime Minister Netanyahu and today is able to overthrow other Zionist generals, Salmi added.

    “سيف القدس” وإخراج دمشق من الفخّ الكارثيّ

    لم تكن فلسطين في العقل السوري في أي يوم من الأيام إلا جزءاً من البيئة الجغرافية السورية.

    قد تكون دمشق الرابح الأكبر بعد الفلسطينيين في معركة “سيف القدس” باعتبار أنها كشفت دورها السابق والمستقبلي تجاه فلسطين.

    تلقَّفت دمشق نتائج الانتصار الكبير للمواجهة الأخيرة بين “إسرائيل” والمقاومة الفلسطينية، التي توحّدت بمستوويها المدني والعسكري، وبقطاعاتها الثلاثة في غزة والضفة الغربية والأراضي المحتلة العام 1948، بسعادة كبيرة، لظهور نتائج موقفها الداعم للمقاومة الفلسطينية الذي لم ينقطع، رغم كل ما أصابها من بعض حركة “حماس” أثناء قيادة رئيس مكتبها السياسي السابق خالد مشعل، ما دفع الرئيس الأسد إلى استقبال قادة المقاومة بشكل علني، والتركيز على ضرورة إبراز الدور السوري في كلِّ الانتصارات، بما في ذلك الانتصار الأكبر، عملية “سيف القدس”، التي غيرت المعادلات داخل فلسطين، وأظهرت مدى هشاشة الكيان الذي لا جذور له في هذه الأرض، حتى تاريخياً، والَّذي تشبه خرافة قوّته خرافة وجود يهوذا و”إسرائيل” ومعبد سليمان في أرض فلسطين. كما أدركت دمشق بحسها السياسي الخبير بالشؤون الدولية أنَّ هذا الانتصار سينعكس عليها إيجاباً في المدى القريب إقليمياً ودولياً.

    لم تكن فلسطين في العقل السوري في أي يوم من الأيام إلا جزءاً من البيئة الجغرافية السورية، التي حدَّدها أغلب الجغرافيين العرب بمصطلح بلاد الشام، ومنهم الإدريسي الأشهر، باعتبارها المناطق التي تمتد من شمال وغرب السويدية، التي تشكل الحد الفاصل بين بلاد الشام وبلاد الأرمن، إلى العريش أو رفح جنوباً. وقد قُسِّمت إدارياً في عهد السيطرة العثمانية في القرن التاسع عشر إلى 3 ولايات، هي دمشق وحلب وبيروت.

    ولَم يكن الفلسطينيون يتعاطون مع دمشق إلا باعتبارها مركزهم السياسي والاقتصادي، وهو ما دفعهم إلى الاشتراك في مؤتمر سوريا الأول في دمشق في العام1918 ، بوفدٍ مؤلف من 17 شخصية فلسطينية، على رأسهم ممثل نابلس الباحث والمؤرخ عزة دروزة، الذي اختير نائباً لرئيس المؤتمر وقام بتلاوة بيانه الختامي، الذي عبَّر فيه عن رؤية مشرقية للهلال الخصيب ضمن إطار عربي.

    لَم تغب هذه الرؤية عن أغلب الفلسطينيين من الناحية الفعلية، حتى بعد تشكّل المقاومة الفلسطينية بفصائلها المتنوعة، واختيارها دمشق مركزاً وحاميةً لها أثناء احتلال بيروت وإبّان تحريرها من العدو الإسرائيلي، والأهم من ذلك، حركتا “حماس” و”الجهاد” الإسلاميتان، رغم التناقض الأيديولوجي بينهما. وخير من استطاع أن يعبر عن هذا التوجه العام، رغم كل ما شاب المواقف السياسية، هو الشهيد نزار بنات الذي عرّف عن نفسه بأنه سوري فلسطيني.

    هذا ما يفسّر دوافع العقل السياسي السوري بالتعاطي مع القضية الفلسطينية، ففضلاً عن كونها قضية حقوقية أخلاقية إنسانية ذات بعد عربي وإنساني، فإنها قضية احتلال لأرض سورية تشكّل بعداً استراتيجياً للتواصل مع مصر وادي النيل وقارة أفريقيا بأكملها، وهي أهم منطقة سوريَّة يقتضي التركيز عليها أكثر من لواء إسكندرون وبقية المناطق المحتلة، كما أنَّها قضية وجودية بسبب طبيعة الكيان التوسعية وأبعاد سياسات الهيمنة والاستعباد التي تشكّل من أجلها ضمن دوائر متعددة، أقربها إليه سوريا ومصر.

    ورغم خروج سوريا من معظم الفخاخ التي نصبت لها، وخصوصاً في الفترة الفاصلة بين العامين 2006 و2011، بفضل حرب تموز في جنوب لبنان، التي ساهمت بها بشكل كبير وواسع، واعتبرتها نصراً كبيراً لها، ما دفع الولايات المتحدة إلى نصب فخّ اقتصاديّ، برفع اتهامها المزوّر بقتل رئيس الوزراء اللبناني رفيق الحريري عنها، وتوجيهه إلى “حزب الله”، ودفع دول السّعودية وقطر والإمارات العربية المتحدة وتركيا ومصر إلى الانفتاح على سوريا، ومحاولة تغيير تموضعها الجيوسياسي بين الشرق والغرب بالسياسات الاقتصادية الليبرالية التي يغلب عليها الطّابع الخدمي والنمط الاستهلاكي.

    ورغم ما تحقَّق من ذلك، فإنَّ دمشق عندما وُضعت بين خياري الشرق والغرب في مشاريع نقل الغاز القطري إلى تركيا عبر الأراضي السورية، ودعم المقاومة لأجل فلسطين وتسليمها كي يتم ذبحها، فإنها رفضت المساومة، ما تسبّب بتعرّضها لأكبر كارثة في تاريخها، باستخدام نمط الجيل الرابع من الحروب لتدميرها (حروب الوكالة)، والذي أدّى إلى حدوث صدع اجتماعيّ كبير، بفعل النجاح في إثارة الهويات الفرعية لدى طيف واسع لا يُستهان به من السوريين.

    تدرك دمشق، أياً كان صاحب القرار فيها، عمق القضية الفلسطينية في وجدان وعقل السوريين الذين اندفعوا للتطوع في حرب 1948، رغم تنوع الهويات الفرعية بأشكالها القومية والدينية والمذهبية والقبلية والعشائرية والمدينية والريفية، وهي تشكّل القاسم المشترك الأكبر القادر على تجاوز هوياتهم الفرعية نحو إبراز هويتهم السورية الجامعة. وقد تجلت خير تجلٍ أثناء حرب تموز، باندفاع كل السوريين لاستقبال اللبنانيين الذين لجأوا إليهم بعد العدوان الإسرائيلي الواسع التدمير للجنوب اللبناني، وهي الآن بأمسِّ الحاجة لرأب الصدع الاجتماعي الكبير والعميق الذي تسبّبت به الحرب الكارثية على سوريا والسوريين.

    تأتي أهمية معركة “سيف القدس” الأخيرة التي لا تُقدر قيمة نتائجها الكبرى حتى الآن لسوريا والإقليم، وقد تكون دمشق الرابح الأكبر بعد الفلسطينيين فيها، بأنها كشفت دورها السابق والمستقبلي تجاه فلسطين، واختبرت من جديد مدى قدرة الالتزام بالمواجهة الحقيقية المباشرة مع “إسرائيل” وإيقاظ وجدان أغلب السوريين للعودة إلى سوريّتهم، على الرغم من كوارث الحرب والحصار، وعقوبات “قيصر”، وتغوّل اقتصاد الظلّ وسيطرته على معظم مفاصل الاقتصاد، والانحسار الكبير لدورة الحياة الاقتصادية الطبيعية، وهي الآن تحتاج إلى الخروج من الكارثة بمعالجة 3 مسائل أساسية مترابطة وعاجلة، لا يمكن الفصل في ما بينها، أولها الملف الاقتصادي الذي تتطلَّب معالجته إرادة وإدارة وعقلية جديدة، ورأب الصدع الاجتماعي، واستعادة الدور الإقليمي الحامي لها واللائق بموقعها الجيوسياسي الأخطر.

    وقد وفَّر انتصار عملية “سيف القدس” عاملين مهمين للخروج الناجح من الفخ الأخطر، وهما الدور الإقليمي الذي سيعود إليها إلى حد كبير، ودور عامل الرفض لبقاء “إسرائيل” ومقاومتها بإزالة الصدع الاجتماعي.

    ويبقى العنصر الأهم والضاغط الذي يتعلَّق بإعادة الدورة الاقتصادية الطبيعية، وفقاً للموارد المتاحة ومساهمة الحلفاء والأصدقاء، وتحجيم اقتصاد الظل إلى الحدود القصوى، وهو ما ينتظره السّوريون بعد السابع عشر من هذا الشهر، كي يتابعوا تحرير ما تبقّى من أراضيهم المحتلّة في الشمال السوري من الاحتلالين التركي والأميركي، فهل تتحقَّق آمالهم بذلك؟

    Palestine: Hamas defeats Israel

    THE SAKER • MAY 25, 2021

    Just like in 2006, when both Ehud Olmert and George Bush declared that the “invincible IDF” had, yet again, achieved a “glorious victory” and the entire Middle-East almost died laughing hearing this ridiculous claim, today both the US and Israeli propaganda machine have declared another “glorious” victory for the “Jewish state of Israel” cum “sole democracy in the Middle-East”. And, just like in 2006, everybody in the region (and in Zone B) knows that the truth is that the Zionist entity suffered a huge, humiliated, defeat. Let’s try to unpack this.

    First, a few numbers. The combat operations lasted two weeks. All other missile numbers are in dispute. Rather than trust this or that source, I will simply say that Hamas fired many thousands of missiles into Israel. Some, probably less than 50%, were truly intercepted by the Israeli air defenses, others hit in no man’s land, and some actually landed and caused plenty of destruction and at least 12 deaths. The Israelis executed hundreds of artillery and airstrikes causing massive destruction in the Gaza strip and killing about 250 Palestinians. Again, these numbers are guesstimates and they don’t really tell the full story. To understand the story, we need to forget about these numbers and look at what each side was hoping for and what each side achieved. Let’s begin with the Israelis:

    The Israeli scorecard

    To understand Israel’s goals in this war, we first need to place this latest war in its context, and that context is that Israel was comprehensively defeated in Syria. To substantiate this thesis, let’s remember the goals of the Zionists when they unleashed a major international war against Syria. These objectives, as listed in my July 2019 article “Debunking the Rumors About Russia Caving in to Israel” were:

    The initial AngloZionist plan was to overthrow Assad and replace him with the Takfiri crazies (Daesh, al-Qaeda, al-Nusra, ISIS – call them whatever you want). Doing this would achieve the following goals:

    1. Bring down a strong secular Arab state along with its political structure, armed forces, and security services.
    2. Create total chaos and horror in Syria justifying the creation of a “security zone” by Israel not only in the Golan but further north.
    3. Trigger a civil war in Lebanon by unleashing the Takfiri crazies against Hezbollah.
    4. Let the Takfiris and Hezbollah bleed each other to death, then create a “security zone,” but this time in Lebanon.
    5. Prevent the creation of a Shia axis Iran-Iraq-Syria-Lebanon.
    6. Break up Syria along ethnic and religious lines.
    7. Create a Kurdistan which could then be used against Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran.
    8. Make it possible for Israel to become the uncontested power broker in the Middle-East and force the KSA, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, and all others to have to go to Israel for any gas or oil pipeline project.
    9. Gradually isolate, threaten, subvert, and eventually attack Iran with a broad regional coalition of forces.
    10. Eliminate all centers of Shia power in the Middle-East.

    As we all know, this is what actually happened:

    1. The Syrian state has survived, and its armed and security forces are now far more capable than they were before the war started (remember how they almost lost the war initially? The Syrians bounced back while learning some very hard lessons. By all reports, they improved tremendously, while at critical moments Iran and Hezbollah were literally “plugging holes” in the Syrian frontlines and “extinguishing fires” on local flashpoints. Now the Syrians are doing a very good job of liberating large chunks of their country, including every single city in Syria).
    2. Not only is Syria stronger, but the Iranians and Hezbollah are all over the country now, which is driving the Israelis into a state of panic and rage.
    3. Lebanon is rock solid; even the latest Saudi attempt to kidnap Hariri is backfiring. (2021 update: in spite of the explosion in Beirut, Hezbollah is still in charge)
    4. Syria will remain unitary, and Kurdistan is not happening. Millions of displaced refugees are returning home.
    5. Israel and the US look like total idiots and, even worse, as losers with no credibility left.

    Seeing their defeat in Syria, the Zionists did what they always do: they used their propaganda machine to list an apparently neverending victorious strikes on supposed “Iranian targets” in Syria. While a few civilian simpletons with zero military experience did buy into this nonsense, the truth about Israeli operations in Syria is simple: the Syrian air defenses have successfully prevented the Israelis from striking at important, sensitive, targets, and they Israelis have been forced to declare as major victories the destruction of empty barns as “destruction of important IRGC headquarters” thereby “proving” to a few naive folks in Zone A and to themselves (!) that the IDF is still as “invincible” as it “always was”. As for the Neocons, they doubled-up on that and declared that 1) Russian air defenses are useless 2) that Russia and Israel work hand in hand and 3) that the Israelis are still invincible. Yet if any of that was true, why has Israel failed to achieve a single one of its goals? And why are both the Russians and the Iranians still in Syria were the Russians just finished a 2nd runway at Khmeimim and they have just deployed a group of Tu-22M3 at that air base from where they can now threaten any ship sailing in the Mediterranean, the Red Sea, the Persian Gulf, the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean. In their otherwise “free time” they can deliver tons of bombs and missiles to the remaining Takfiri forces in Syria.

    As I have been saying for many years now, the truth is that the IDF is a poor fighting force. Why? First, they have the exact same problem as the USA (and the KSA, for that matter): they rely on expensive technology, but don’t have good combat-capable “boots on the ground”. That is now how modern wars are won (see here for a list of popular misconceptions about modern wars).

    In its recent history, the entire gamut of Israeli “elite” forces (including the air force, the navy, the artillery and even the Golani Brigade) got its collective butt handed to them by about 1000 and only lightly armed regular Hezbollah fighters in 2006: keep in mind that the elite Hezbollah forces were deployed only north of the Litani river to protect Beirut against a possible land invasion by Israel. Instead of taking Beirut or “disarming Hezbollah” (that was an official goal!), the Israelis could not even control the small town of Bint Jbeil located right across the official Israeli border! So much for being “invincible”!

    What the IDF is very experienced at is terrorising Palestinian civilians and executing what could be called a slow-motion genocide of the Palestinian people. The problem with Gaza now is the same that the failed invasion of Lebanon in 2006 has revealed: just like the Lebanese in 2006, the Palestinians of 2021 are not afraid of the Zionists anymore. Furthermore, with a great deal of help from Iran and others, Hamas in Gaza is now much, much better armed than in the past. True, some of its missiles are decidedly low tech and not very effective (low accuracy, small warheads, simple trajectory, limited range), but Hamas also has shown some pretty decent UAVs too. Most importantly, from now on for Hamas it is only one way: up the “quality ladder” (just like the Houthis did in Yemen, starting with modest drones but eventually getting very capable ones).

    The other major goal of the Israelis in this war was to prove to the world (and, even more importantly for the always narcissistic self-worshipping Israeli cowards, to themselves!) that their “Iron Dome” air defense network was the “super-dooper most bestest” in the world (no doubt, due to the famed “Jewish genius”!). It now appears that at best, the Israelis intercepted somewhere around 30-40% of the Hamas missiles. The way the Israeli hid this is by claiming that their fancy shmancy Iron Drone did not even try to engage missiles which were not deemed dangerous. But in the age of the ubiquitous smartphone, that kind of silly nonsense can easily be debunked (including by showing the total chaos in the Israeli skies or, for that matter, the missile strikes on Israeli military objectives). While the full Iron Dome air defense system probably works marginally better than the quasi-useless US Patriot, the Israeli air defenses are clearly at least a generation behind the Russian ones, including the S-300s the Russians sold to Syria (again, in the age of of the ubiquitous smartphone, this is not hard to prove).

    It is crucial to remember that Hamas’ missiles are much inferior to those of the Houthis and the Syrians, and even more inferior when compared to Hezbollah or Iranian drones and missiles! In other words, the “invincible” IDF can’t deal with even its weakest, least sophisticated enemies (Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad) and the grotesquely expensive Iron Done cannot protect the Zionists from any determined missile attacks by the Resistance coalition (Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Hezbollah, Iran and Russia).

    In their utter despair, the Zionist entity did what the AngloZionists always do when they fail to defeat a military forces: they will turn their wrath on the civilian infrastructure and murder as many as they can. They will also strike highly symbolic targets such as the International Press Center in Gaza or a Red Crescent hospital (under the pretext that Hamas, which is the democratically elected local government) has offices there (this is clearly a F-you to those who condemn Israel for violating international law). To a normal human being, this sounds both obscene and ridiculous. But remember, the Israelis are first and foremost narcissists and they have no means of imagining how normal human beings think or feel. All these guys can feel is self-worship and hatred for all “others”.

    We could say that in this war, the Palestinians defeated both military high tech and truly medieval type of genocidal hatred.

    In other words, far from showing how “invincible” the Zionist entity is, this latest war against the Palestinians has shown beyond reasonable doubt that the IDF cannot deal with any of its enemies.

    Besides missiles and bombs, the Israelis love to use terror, as their ideology has convinced them of two things: the Arabs only understand force and we, the Israelis, are invincible. But this begs the question of why the Israelis did not dare to move into Gaza, not even symbolically. Yeah, I know, the official doxa of Zone A is that “Biden called Netanyahu and told him to stop”. As if “Biden” could give orders to the Israelis!

    The truth is that even with a casualty rate of 10:1 in the IDF’s advantage and no armor or artillery, the Palestinians are much more willing to engage in street battles than the IDF. Would the IDF eventually win a ground battle against Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad? Maybe, probably, the objective advantages in everything (except courage!) for the Israelis is so huge that no amount of skills and courage can forever negate the immense superiority in means of the Israelis.

    However, as most people in the West tend to forget, wars are but means towards a political goal. If the IDF decided to basically flatten Gaza and kill many thousands of Palestinians at the cost of casualties probably in the hundereds, then this would be politically suicidal for the Zionist regime. This is why I offer this very basic conclusion:

    During the latest Gaza war, deterrence did work. But only in the sense that the Palestinians successfully deterred the Israelis from launching a ground attack against Gaza.

    There is another crucial political development which should also be noted: while both Iran and Hezbollah did give their full political support to Hamas+Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the latter did not request any assistance. In other words, not only did the Palestinians defeat the Israelis, but they did so absolutely alone, with no help from the other Resistance members.

    Again, those Zone A civilians who believe that Israel is scoring huge victories in Syria on a quasi daily basis won’t get it, which is par for the course. But you can be darn sure that at least most of the IDF top commanders know the true score and for them it is yet another huge disaster.

    There is also a political factor to consider. While there have been coordination resistance actions by the Palestinians in Israel (proper, as defined by the UN), this is the first time when the Palestinians from Gaza, those from the Occupied Territories and those in “Israel” truly fought, if not side by side (yet!), then at least at the same time and in a common cause. This is a major political victory for Hamas+Palestinian Islamic Jihad and a major problem for Fatah and the Zionists. Now let’s look at the rest of the Palestinian scorecard:

    The Palestinian scorecard:

    Let’s start by the obvious one: the Palestinians were not defeated. This victory can be further subdivided in the following:

    • The Palestinian leadership has mostly physically survived, it still exists as a local authority. Plenty of Palestinians were murdered, but that did not affect the operational capabilities of the Palestinian forces (any more than the IDF succeeded in affecting Iranian operational capabilities in Syria).
    • The Palestinian leadership has also survived politically. It was not blamed by the “Palestinian street” for starting the war, nor was it blamed for how it executed it. As for Fatah, it is now, by all accounts, lost somewhere in a political no man’s land which, admittedly, it richly deserves for its incompetence, corruption and subservience to Israel and the USA.
    • Militarily speaking, the Palestinian missile strikes were not nearly as effective than, say, Hezbollah (nevermind Iranian!) strikes would have been, but, hey, they made huge progress and we can all rest assured that the Palestinians of Gaza will, sooner or later, catch up with the Houthis and, further down the road, maybe even Hezbollah.
    • By many accounts, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad have made major political inroads into the Palestinian political scene outside Gaza. Even in spite of a truly immense hasbara effort by the Israelis, the international public opinion was blaming Israel for the orgy of violence.

    It is interesting to note here that the famous Israeli journalist Gideon Levy has written an article for Ha’aretz entitled “Israeli Propaganda Isn’t Fooling Anyone – Except Israelis” which was further subtitled “’Hasbara’ is the Israeli euphemism for propaganda, and there are some things, said the late ambassador Yohanan Meroz, that are not ‘hasbarable.’ One of them is Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians.” This is how Levy’s article began:

    And propaganda shall cover for everything. We’ll say terrorism, we’ll shout anti-Semitism, we’ll scream delegitimation, we’ll cite the Holocaust; we’ll say Jewish state, gay-friendly, drip irrigation, cherry tomatoes, aid to Nepal, Nobel Prizes for Jews, look what’s happening in Syria, the only democracy, the greatest army. We’ll say the Palestinians are making unilateral moves, we’ll propose negotiations on the “settlement bloc borders,” we’ll demand recognition of a Jewish state and we’ll complain that “there’s no one to talk to.” We’ll wail that the whole world is against us and wants to destroy us, no less.

    Now comes the best part: Levy wrote this on Jun. 4, 2015 and updated it on Apr. 10, 2018 – years before the current disaster! Since then, things have only gone south for the IDF and the Israelis in general. Just the blowback from the war in Syria is, for the IDF, a true disaster.

    Of course, “Israel” is still worshipped and faithfully served by many ruling classes worldwide (that is one of the functions of the Empire, to enforce this), but that officially lauded Israel is viewed with disgust and revulsion on most of the planet. Hence the inevitable failure of the truly galactic PR effort to brainwash the regular people into believing that Israeli is a polyyanish country, a “place without people for a people without country”, etc. etc. etc. This “Ziolatry”, if you wish, was effective when the PLO was blowing up Jewish grade schools in Western Europe, but today it has lost almost all of its traction, especially amongst thinking people.

    The sad and disgusting reality about the Zionist entity is truly coming out, seeping under the propaganda walls of the Empire, and slowly but inevitably resulting in a common reaction of outrage and utter disgust for what is nothing else but the last officially racist country on the planet, the only country with an open air concentration camp it surrounds on all sides, the only country which truly, openly and sincerely does not give a damn about international law or about the lives of non-Jews (while calling their own lives sacred, of course!). This is a state which constantly repeats the mantra about the supposedly “sacred” blood of Jews while, at the same time, committing a slow motion (but very real) genocide of the Palestinian people while using non-stop terrorist attacks against any country daring to defy the order of the latest, and hopefully last, wannabe “superior race” in human history. This is also why the “crime of crimes” for politically correct and successfully brainwashed people is to declare that Israel has no right to exist. This is such a major crimethink that I want to conclude by committing it right now and asking others to join me in this “crimethink”!

    Israel has no right to exist whatsoever first and foremost because it is an artificial creation of West European imperialist powers. Second, it is a country which has always engaged in atrocities and massive violations of international laws and norms. Instead, Israel is based on a racist ideology which is, for all practical purpose, indistinguishable from Hitler’s Nazi ideology (both National Socialism and Zionism have the same roots in both time, space and culture, both being products of European secularism and nationalism). For these reasons, Israel, and the Zionist ideology which supports it, are both a clear and present danger for international peace and stability (for details on Zionism as an ideology and its toxicity, please see here). Furthermore, the only possibly way for the Palestinian people to ever recover their land and their rights under international law is for the Zionist “regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time” (to quote the often mistranslated sentence by Ayatollah Komenei). By the way, this awareness also presupposes a clear understanding that the so-called “Two State Solution” (2SS) is an impossibility. Yes, I know, the 2SS is currently the only one under international law, but that is hardly surprising since the state of Israel was created with not only many of the trappings of “being an internationally recognized state” but also with the shameful complicity of the country which won WWII. There is one thing which Israel has in common with the so-called “Republic of Kosovo”: they will be the very first to be liberated as soon as the AngloZionist Empire finally crashes visibly (of course, it has already crashed, hence the many disastrous outcomes for the USA and Israel on the international scene, but that is still denied officially in Zone A and,of course, by the AngloZionist propaganda and those who pay attention to it.

    In truth, there is only one true “solution” to this war: the so-called “One State Solution”, meaning that those who live in this land will get to choose their leaders and lifestyles according to the old “one person, one vote” principle. All other “solutions” simply perpetuate the current genocide!

    As for those Jews who still want an ethnically pure state of Israel, they can either grow up and get real, or they can choose to colonize some other planet. As long as they don’t persecute local lifeforms, that might work. But if they do this will all happen again, over and over.

    Conclusion: “Gaza” and the future of the Zionist entity

    I want to end here with what I believe is a glance at the future (or lack thereof!) of Israel. The website Islamic World News Analysis Group (which I highly recommend!) recently posted what it claims to be a video of a new Iranian combat drone named “Gaza” described as so: “The Gaza drone, capable of carrying 13 bombs and 500 kilograms of equipment, as well as 35 hours of flight up to a radius of 2,000 kilometers, is capable of carrying out a variety of combat and intelligence operations. According to the published images, it seems that the Gaza drone uses the Rotary Bomb Launcher mechanism under its fuselage, which can carry up to 5 bombs. This is the first Iranian drone to use this mechanism. 8 bombs are also installed under the wings and in total this drone is capable of carrying 13 bombs”. Here is the footage of this new drone. Take a look for yourself and imagine what the next round of this campaign to liberate Palestine might look like.

    Islamic Jihad to ’Act Accordingly’ If ’Israel’ Continues Gaza Strikes

    Islamic Jihad to ’Act Accordingly’ If ’Israel’ Continues Gaza Strikes

    By Staff, Agencies

    Palestinian resistance groups warned Egyptian mediators that their patience is “running out” after the Zionist occupation regime Thursday evening launched an attack against Hamas positions in retaliation for the launching of incendiary balloons, a senior Islamic Jihad official said on Saturday.

    The exchanges of hostilities come as the UN and Egypt try to consolidate a fragile ceasefire the ‘Israeli’ side begged for on May 21 following nearly two weeks of intense retaliation from resistance movements in Gaza to the Zionist onslaught.

    “The Islamic Jihad will react accordingly to any future ‘Israeli’ military attack,” the official warned, vowing that the Palestinian resistance group “will not allow the ‘Israeli’ government to impose conditions on the resistance or isolate Gaza.”

    The official further indicated that “the joint room of the resistance groups in Gaza have formulated a final and unified position to face the ‘Israeli’ action in the coming days.”

    Continued ‘Israeli’ strikes “will certainly lead” to a resumption of military confrontation across the border in the near future,’ the Islamic Jihad official added.

    Nasrallah: Gaza’s victory paves the way for the total Liberation of Palestine (full speech)

    Date: 9 June 2021

    Speech by Hezbollah Secretary General Sayed Hassan Nasrallah on May 25, 2021, on the occasion of the 21st anniversary of the Liberation of Lebanon.

    Note: This is not a literal translation of Nasrallah’s speech, but a detailed summary of its content.

    Transcript:

    Praise be to God. Greetings on the Prophet and his family. Peace be upon you, as well as the Mercy of God.

    I apologize for having given no speech since Al-Quds Day, I was a bit sick and I still am [Nasrallah clearly had difficulties breathing and was coughing; it was a pneumonia, not Covid, despite the usual Israeli propaganda about a terminal disease, as proven by his ability to make a 2-hours live speech on May 25, and by his healthy looks on his June 8th 1-hour-speech].

    The days gone by have seen historical events which I have followed closely, but I could not speak publicly despite my will. I will speak extensively about the events in Gaza in this speech. Quranic verse: « And slacken not in following up the enemy: if ye are suffering hardships, they are suffering similar hardships; but ye have hope from God while they have none. » (S. IV, v. 104).

    The month of May saw some unhappy events (the Nakba) and other happy ones (the Liberation of Lebanon on May 25, 2000). Congratulations to the people of Palestine who have added a new victory, from Gaza to Jerusalem to the territories occupied in 1948. Condolences to the families of martyrs and best wishes for recovery to the wounded. Congratulations in particular to the cadres of the Resistance & the people of Gaza who patiently endured Israeli barbarity.

    I also congratulate the Lebanese on this Liberation Day. I want the Lebanese people, especially the new generations, not to forget that this Liberation of May 25, 2000 is the result of long years of sacrifices by many Lebanese and Resistance factions, not just Hezbollah. Let us recall the memory of the martyrs of Hezbollah, Amal movement, other nationalist movements, the Lebanese and Palestinian resistance fighters, as well as the Lebanese Army and the martyrs of the Syrian army. Let us not forget the Lebanese civilian martyrs, men, women and children, victims of the civil war and of the Israeli massacres. Finally, we should mention the martyrs of the Resistance and the people’s support for this Resistance. I don’t speak only of southern Lebanon, but of the Bekaa, cradle of Hezbollah, and all over Lebanon. May 25, 2000 (the date of the expulsion of the last Israeli forces occupying Lebanon) was the victory of all of Lebanon, of Beirut, of the North, of every place in Lebanon. The whole country helped shape this victory.

    I recall in particular the martyr Sayed Abbas Mousawi (former Hezbollah Secretary General), assassinated by Israel with his wife and child; the martyr Sheikh Ragheb Harb; the martyr Imad Moghniyeh; the martyr Sayed Zulfiqar. A whole caravan of Hezbollah martyrs.

    In addition to the Lebanese Resistance and the Lebanese people, we must salute the official Lebanese position embodied by President Emile Lahoud, Nabih Berri and Salim al-Hoss, as well as the majoritary position of the Lebanese government which supported the Resistance and its legitimacy. All this made it possible to obtain the Liberation, and to avoid the civil war that Ehud Barak was preparing (to devastate Lebanon after the departure of the Israeli troops).

    I also praise the Syrian support of Hafez al-Assad and Bashar al-Assad, and the support of Iran, of Imam Khomeini and Imam Khamenei. And I especially salute Qassem Soleimani’s role in the 2000 victory, even though his name and role were kept secret at the time. This Liberation ushered in the era of victories for the Arab-Muslim world. On May 25, 2000, I dedicated this victory to the Palestinian people, with the Liberation of Palestine and Al-Quds (Jerusalem) being the ultimate goal. This victory opened a new culture, new values, imposing new clear strategic equations. In 2000, many Zionist leaders spoke of the dire consequences this humiliating retreat would have. Yithzak Shamir, at Ben-Gurion’s grave, spoke of Hezbollah’s victory as something that could lead to Israel’s demise. Then took place the first Intifada in 2000, and the Liberation of Gaza in 2005.

    The Popular Armed Resistance established two strong bases in Lebanon and Gaza, which the enemy wanted to destroy. He failed, accumulating defeats and strengthening the Resistance, whether during the 2006 war against Lebanon, or the 2008, 2012 or 2014 wars in Gaza. The siege of Gaza for more than 15 years, assassination campaigns, etc. have also failed. The last 11-day war is very different. But all these wars won by the Palestinian and Lebanese camp have confirmed and strengthened the path of the Resistance.

    I now come to the last battle named “Sword of Al-Quds” by the Palestinian Resistance. I will not go into detail, but explain why this is a great victory and what it announces for the future of the struggle against Israel. The beginning was in Al-Quds (Jerusalem), with Israel’s insistence on ethnically cleansing Al-Quds and the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, attacks on Palestinians, preventing worshipers from praying at Al-Aqsa during Ramadan (the Palestinians from the territories of 1948, 1967 and Jerusalem itself). Israel did its best to prevent worshipers from going to Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa, and repeatedly assaulted those who did manage to get there.

    There was a real threat to Al-Quds, which caused the Resistance in Gaza to issue a historic ultimatum to Israel: cease your ethnic cleansing in Sheikh Jarrah and your assaults on believers in Al-Aqsa, or we will intervene militarily. The threat was carried out by Hamas and Islamic Jihad, who launched their rockets/missiles at the promised time.

    This whole crisis was caused by the stupidity of Netanyahu & the Israeli leaders, their arrogance, hubris, contempt and underestimation of Arabs, traits which are a constant in the history of Israel. All previous wars had the same cause, and this enemy will remain blind, arrogant, stupid, making mistakes and miscalculations that will lead to its downfall and demise. Imam Khomeini said “Praise be to God who made our enemies stupid”. Netanyahu and the Israelis believed they could take over Jerusalem and Judaize it, expel Palestinian families, replace them with Jewish settlers, assault the Muslim/Christian worshippers, without anything happening, just empty protests. They did so, deeming the Arabs defeated and having normalized their relations with Israel. They believed that the Arab world had abandoned the cause, that the Palestinians of the territories occupied in 1948, of the West Bank and of Gaza were powerless.

    The enemy never even imagined that Gaza could intervene militarily in defense of Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa. It hadn’t occurred to anyone within the Zionist entity, neither the political leaders, nor the military leaders, nor the security services. But Gaza surprised both the enemy and the friend. Israel did not imagine such a thing, and therefore persevered in its indiscriminate aggression in Al-Quds (Jerusalem). That’s why Israel was surprised and defeated.

    Gaza’s decision is historic, and its lessons must be understood. Previously, all the wars in Gaza had causes linked to Gaza: reaction to assassinations or Israeli aggressions in Gaza, struggle against the severe siege of Gaza, etc. The Resistance’s calculations were still purely Gazan, protecting only the residents of Gaza. But what happened in this last round is that Gaza intervened to protect Al-Quds (Jerusalem), Sheikh Jarrah, Al-Aqsa. This decision is historic, exceptional, and turns things upside down. The Resistance knew it was heading for war, massacres, destruction of Gaza. But the Gaza Resistance was ready to sacrifice itself to defend Al-Quds (Jerusalem) and Al-Aqsa.

    Gaza and all of its inhabitants sacrificed themselves to preserve Islam’s 3rd holiest site, considering themselves to be in charge and responsible for it. It was a decision of a high level of jihad and sincerity, and that is why it had this enormous influence, rocking the Palestinians all over occupied Palestine, with the support of the refugees and the whole world, except the minority of zombies (Arab dictators) who normalized their relations with Israel. The protests on the Lebanese-Israeli, Jordanian-Israeli border and all around the world, the popular support and final victory were exceptional, commensurate with this exceptional decision of the Gaza Resistance.

    The Zionists must understand this, as must the Muslim community and the Resistance Axis, but I am addressing the enemy and its leaders: this experience must lead you to redo all your calculations. You should know that laying your hands on Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa is a red line. Assassinations here or there, expropriations here or there, besieging here or there has nothing to do with laying your hands on Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa, our holy places, as demonstrated by what Gaza has done, the promises made and kept by the Resistance in Gaza. They were sincere and will stand ready to do what they did again if Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa are threatened or desecrated again.

    All the factions of the Resistance Axis (Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, Irak’s PMU & Yemeni Resistance) were in constant contact, hour by hour during this war. In the future, we will ensure that touching Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa will not only involve Gaza but the entire Resistance Axis. The Resistance in Gaza has imposed a new equation: if Israel lays its hands on Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa, Gaza is going to war. What we must now impose is that if Israel lays its hands on Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa, then there will be a regional war!

    The whole Resistance Axis must be ready and make this clear to Israel: we will never allow the Al-Aqsa Mosque to be endangered. For the outcome of any regional war can only be the eradication of the Zionist entity. It is this new equation that will allow us to protect the holy city of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) and its Muslim and Christian holy places. We are working very seriously on it. When our holy places are in danger, there is no more red line, no more calculation (= it will be total war).

    I will not analyze all the consequences of this war, but highlight a few of them:

    1/ The soul of the Resistance resurfaced in all the Palestinians, who all united and rose up as one man, in Gaza, the West Bank, the territories occupied in 1948, the Palestinians refugees all over the world, etc. The decades-long division and dislocation is over: the Palestinian people are united.

    2/ The Palestinian cause has been revived all over the world. It was deemed buried once and for all by Trump and normalization, but this cause has reclaimed its prominent place all over the world, in all media, all minds and all consciousnesses.

    3/ The Palestinian identity and the dream of Liberation have been brought back to the fore.

    4/ Belief in the Armed Resistance and the Intifada has once again become the best choice to obtain Liberation. The soul of Resistance has returned to our peoples.

    5/ The failure to locate (and assassinate) the main military leaders. Israel came up with several names, including Hamas Commander Mohamed Dayf, but they failed to kill them. That some (minor field commanders) were killed is normal in a war, but it is far from what Israel wanted.

    6/ Israel, both in terms of political, military and security leaders, was unable, as I said, not only to anticipate, but even to imagine that Gaza would enter the scene militarily to protect Al-Quds, Al-Aqsa and Sheikh Jarrah, just as Israel was unable to anticipate or imagine that all of Palestine would rise up in the face of Israeli aggression at Al-Quds.

    7/ The Deal of the Century is definitely buried. The Resistance in Gaza and the Israeli failure to win made the Biden administration abandon Trump’s concessions. Biden put East Jerusalem back on the table and called on the Israelis not to expropriate the residents of Sheikh Jarrah. The heart of the Deal of the Century was to give all of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) to Israel, but that is forgotten now. Of course, Biden did not intervene for humanitarian reasons, but because he saw Israel’s helplessness and the risk of an explosion in the region, which thwarted his own international priorities.

    8/ The true face of Israel, barbaric, bloodthirsty, slaughtering children, racist and Jewish supremacist, clearly returned to everyone’s eyes and mind, despite Israel’s grip on media and social networks. Israel couldn’t care less about the opinion of the Arab world, but not that of the Western world, and we have seen that even EU countries were forced to condemn Israel in one way or another, and put it in an awkward position.

    9/ One of the most important political results is that the compass of conflict in the region has settled again on Israel, after years of civil wars, creation of bogus enemies like Iran, etc. Today, it is clear to the whole world (and not just in the Arab-Muslim world) that the enemy of humanity, of justice, of truth, the racist and criminal entity is Israel and nobody else.

    After discussing the political consequences of this Gaza-Israel war, I now come to the military consequences. We must take into account the scales (in this asymmetric conflict): on the one hand, Israel is the regular Army of a State, US-backed, which has the most powerful air force in the region, and on the other hand, Gaza, under siege for more than 15 years, is a tiny territory surrounded on all sides, with +2 million inhabitants, and an ungrateful geography (from the point of view of Resistance opportunities: no mountains, etc.). Some weapons from Gaza are imported and others are manufactured locally. But we can clearly see that despite their very limited possibilities, and Israel’s total control over information (Gaza is under constant surveillance by all means: drones, electronic surveillance, spies, etc.), Gaza has been able to demonstrate courage, sagacity and victorious struggle against one of the most militarily powerful States in the world.

    I will quickly set out the military consequences of this conflict:

    1/ The entry of Gaza into the protection equation of Al-Quds, Al-Aqsa and Sheikh Jarrah. In fact, Gaza has entered the issues of all of Palestine, shifting from defense to attack.

    2/ Despite the severe siege, the Resistance was able to greatly improve its rocket/missile & fighting capacities. For 11 days, they continued to fire rockets/missiles despite Israel’s best efforts, its planes, drones, artillery strikes, etc.

    3/ Gaza even proved its ability to fire rockets/missiles at times announced in advance, to the point that some brothers were surprised, advising not to give this information to the enemy (which would allow him to better defend itself), but it was a point of strength (psychological warfare).

    4/ The number of rockets/missiles fired was very large, hundreds every day, which reflects very large stocks and great skill. The type of rockets/missiles fired, the targets hit, the damage done, it was all very powerful.

    5/ All of this shook the Israeli State like never before. All countries can go through civil wars, very trying crises, and remain. But Israel is a fake, artificial State that has been shaken to the point that its very existence has been called into question. Israel is a State whose precondition for existence is security. If security is no longer there, all Israelis (who all have dual citizenships) will come back from where they come from: Europe, USA, Australia… At the first (serious) storm, Israeli society will pack up and leave! This sets Israel apart from all other countries: the Palestinians, despite 1948 and 1967, remained attached to their land. They are willing to sacrifice themselves by the hundreds of thousands to return there, until this day. They have not abandoned their territory! But Israel, no! The Israelis have their second passport ready, their suitcase ready, and they will leave at the first storm: if neither the government nor the military can protect them, why would they stay? This consequence, namely to shake Israel to such an extent, is unprecedented, even during the 2006 war. Never before has such a large area of ​​Israel been under rocket fire: Tel Aviv, Beer Sheva, Ashdod, airports, the Negev… 70% of Israelis were holed up in shelters for 11 days ! The worst for Israel was not the material losses, but the psychological losses: the warnings rang everywhere, introducing terror into their hearts. It doesn’t really matter if the rockets hit their target or not!

    6/ In addition to all the economic losses and the feeling of insecurity at home, it is the same abroad: who is going to come and invest in Israel without guarantee of security for their investments, without stability? Israel’s dream of becoming an economical/financial hub in the Mediterranean is over!

    7/ For the first time, the Palestinian territories occupied in 1948 entered into revolt. It’s not just Gaza and the West Bank anymore. All Israeli leaders recognize that this is an existential threat for Israel!

    8/ The Gaza Resistance was also exceptional: the way they carried out the fight, the way they prepared for a ground invasion, to the point that the enemy did not dare to set foot in Gaza, all of this is a huge victory.

    9/ The Resistance was able to present to its people, to the whole world and to its enemies a brilliant image of victory.

    On the other hand, let us see the failures of the enemy, as admitted by their officials and experts:

    1/ Failure to achieve any strategic success after 11 days. Nothing!

    2/ Israeli officials speak of tactical successes, but these are insignificant for such a powerful army: destroying some tunnels, killing some cadres, it’s negligible! The rocket fire could not be stopped, and Israel did not even know where it was coming from. Even when they knew the time of the rocket salvos in advance, their planes and drones were unable to locate them. The Iron Dome was also a failure. The 90% interception figure is a lie, it’s more like 50-60%. The damage proves that their 90% figure for the Iron Dome is a lie. The proof of the failure of the Iron Dome is also the fact that Netanyahu asked for military aid from Biden, who immediately granted it. The rockets kept hitting all of occupied Palestine!

    3/ The failure of the trap set for the Resistance in Gaza, which Israel had been preparing to neutralize for years, but the Israeli Army proved to be powerless.

    4/ The failure to prevent weapons from reaching the Resistance. The rockets did not stop and could have been launched at this rate for months on end. Israel is incapable not only of knowing where the rockets are, but has no idea how many they are, which is a colossal failure of their intelligence.

    5/ The failure to locate (and assassinate) the main military leaders. Israel came up with several names, including Hamas Commander Mohamed Dayf, but they failed to kill them. That some (minor field commanders) were killed is normal in a war, but it is far from what Israel wanted.

    6/ Israel, both in terms of political, military and security leaders, was unable, as I said, not only to anticipate, but even to imagine that Gaza would enter the scene militarily to protect Al-Quds, Al-Aqsa and Sheikh Jarrah, just as Israel was unable to anticipate or imagine that all of Palestine would rise up in the face of Israeli aggression at Al-Quds.

    7/ The worst part is that Israel found itself completely taken aback, lost, not knowing what to do with this unforeseen explosion on all sides.

    And now I ask a question to the Chief of Staff of the Israeli Army, Aviv Kochavi, this so-called “philosopher” who for 3 years has been rethinking Israel’s strategy, organizing colossal maneuvers, etc. His main thought was that the infantry was the basis for achieving victory. But this great strategic thinker [irony] bit the dust against Gaza, despite all his measures, all his maneuvers, all his preparations. There was not even a land incursion into Gaza! It’s a humiliating mark of their defeat.

    I am not claiming that Israel is incapable of carrying out a major ground operation, no, but I am claiming that the morale of the Israeli troops is shaped by fear: they are terrified at the idea of a ground operation, whether in Gaza, Lebanon or anywhere. Despite their technology, weaponry, planes, tanks, etc., they are scared to death to conduct a ground operation. They are still haunted by their bloody debacle in 2014 in Gaza (+60 soldiers killed), with soldiers they did not even know if they were alive. That the so-called most powerful army in the region is so afraid is a major strategic failure.

    Lastly, Israel has failed to present even an image of victory, short of a real victory! Polls indicate that no more than 20% of Israelis consider Israel to have won. So much for the description, consequences and lessons to be learned from this confrontation in Gaza.

    I come now to Lebanon. On this day commemorating the Liberation of Lebanon, I assure the Lebanese people that Hezbollah has never been better off than today. We are more powerful than ever (weapons, numbers, experience, preparation, faith, courage, morale, etc.). I tell the Israelis not to be stupid, not to be arrogant, not to miscalculate against Lebanon. The rules of engagement remain valid (the slightest aggression against Lebanon will trigger a response). You made a big miscalculation with Gaza and saw what it cost you, so imagine what it would be like with Hezbollah, which is in a much better situation than Gaza! Despite the sanctions and the difficulties, we are not under siege! We will not tolerate any aggression against our territory or population!

    Third point, the masses who support Hezbollah remain firmly attached to the Resistance despite the economic difficulties, which will not change the massive support of our popular base. The President of Lebanon, Michel Aoun, continues to support the Resistance and the rights of Lebanon. The same goes for the government and the Parliament. All US sanctions and threats weaken neither the Resistance nor those who support it.

    Fourth point, in terms of our pending accounts with Israel, we add (to our 2 martyrs in Damascus to avenge) the martyr Mohamad Tahan, killed on the Lebanese-Israeli border while demonstrating unarmed for Palestine. I renew my congratulations and condolences to his family. This blood will be avenged: we had the patience not to avenge it immediately, but we add it to the pending accounts (and he will be avenged sooner or later).

    Tahan

    Fifth point before the conclusion: the formation of a new government is the key to everything. There is no need for the resignation of President Aoun, nor the resignation of Prime Minister Hariri charged with forming the government, nor the simultaneous resignation of both. What prevents the formation of a government are purely internal obstacles.

    There are two solutions:

    – either Hariri sits down with Aoun for as long as it takes to achieve the formation of a government. Lebanon is in your hands.

    – or a friend intervenes to help you, like Nabih Berri, the President of the Chamber of Deputies. Everyone must help them to achieve the formation of a government to save the country. There is no other solution. Because the country must move forward: the dire economic, social situation can’t stand the vacuum.

    In conclusion, looking back on all that has happened over the past few days, months and years, the Middle East has gone through the 10 most difficult years it has ever experienced. Entire countries were targeted for destruction. But the Resistance Axis thwarted these plans. The Resistance Axis not only preserved the Middle East, but also enabled Palestine to stand tall and achieve victories. If it hadn’t been for Iran who faced ISIS alongside the local forces in Irak and Syria, where would we be? What would have become of Lebanon, of the other countries? Iran has overcome the threat of (US) war, triumphed over sanctions, and is heading towards presidential elections. ISIS is almost eradicated in Iraq. All of Iraq supported Gaza and the Resistance. Syria is recovering from ISIS, and will also hold presidential elections tomorrow. Lebanon is holding on despite everything. But imagine what the situation would be in Palestine if Iran, Syria and Lebanon had been defeated? Where would we be, with all the regimes having normalized with Israel? Today, the Arab-Muslim world stands alongside Palestine, from one end to the other, and joins the Resistance camp at least at the level of the populations.

    And in terms of political and military forces, Yemen has joined the Resistance Axis, and it is ready to share its bread with Gaza despite the famine there (Nasrallah is moved to tears): the solidarity of famine-stricken Yemen with Palestine, ready to share the very bread it lacks, while the billionaire oil monarchies normalize with Israel! This is a basis that makes you optimistic about the future.

    The Liberation of Al-Quds is closer than ever, and the demise of Israel is very near. Independence, stability, noble and dignified peace are the future of our region.

    I thank all those who have supported the Resistance, in one way or another, first and foremost the Islamic Republic of Iran & Sayed Khamenei, as well as the soul of Hajj Qassem Soleimani who has dedicated more than 20 years to strengthen our region. When he came to our help, he had not a single white hair on his head, and when he left, all of his hair was white. I salute the soul of this great martyr, Soleimani, who sacrificed everything for the region and Palestine, tireless even when others got tired.

    Peace be upon you, as well as the Mercy of God.

    Islamic Jihad to Al-Ahed: Quds Sword Imposed New Equations, Resistance Making Confident Steps to Defeat ‘Israel’

    Islamic Jihad to Al-Ahed: Quds Sword Imposed New Equations, Resistance Making Confident Steps to Defeat ‘Israel’

    Al-Ahed Exclusive

    The leader of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine, Daoud Shehab, said the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Resistance and the subsequent liberation of southern Lebanon coincided with the victory of Operation Al-Quds Sword.

    According to Shehab, the victory carries important implications. The most significant of these is that the resistance persevered – the people of the nation decided not to retreat, and the resistance, whether in Lebanon or Palestine, is recording achievements and accumulating victories in the face of the “Israeli” enemy.

    “There is no way back. We are making confident steps to defeat this entity and liberate every inch of the land of Palestine,” Shehab said in an interview with Al-Ahed News.

    He pointed out that the Al-Quds Sword battle bore the meaning of the liberation of all Palestine.

    “This unification in all the arenas and fields of jihad and resistance throughout occupied Palestine gives an important signal and sends hope again that we are moving towards the fulfillment of God’s promise, the achievement of the great victory, and the defeat of the occupation from all the land of Palestine as it was defeated from southern Lebanon in 2000 and Gaza in 2005,” he stressed.

    Shehab highlighted the expansion of the achievements of the resistance and the nation’s collective awareness that the main priority is confronting the “Israeli” enemy.

    “When Al-Quds was the main title, all Palestinian patriots met in this confrontation, and all attempts by the occupation to sow discord and cracks within the Palestinian society failed.”

    The leader of the Islamic Jihad movement pointed out that “the battle of the Al-Quds Sword represents an essential course to victory and liberation.”

    Shehab explained that “the battle of the Al-Quds Sword established new equations in the open conflict between the resistance and the enemy, the most important of which is that Al-Quds entered into the rules of engagement. Therefore, we are now facing a new challenge – an aggression on All-Quds will be met with a response by the resistance.”

    “The second issue is that the occupation does not surrender easily and does not yield easily to the insistence of the resistance. Ahead of us is a long journey with Al-Quds as the objective. When we called this battle Al-Quds Sword, the name implies that this sword is now in the hands of the resistance that is ready to defend the city of Al-Quds.”

    He also stressed that the resistance is ready at any time to make sacrifices and engage in confrontations in order to defend occupied Al-Quds. He confirmed that the resistance throughout the Palestinian homeland from its sea to its river from its north to its south is fully prepared to assume the responsibility of defending the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

    “We face two main constants in the Palestinian situation. Al-Quds is a fundamental constant that cannot be overlooked or abandoned. Secondly, the resistance is an authentic expression of the Palestinian situation in which our people live under occupation,” Shehab said.

    “There is nothing that can unite the Palestinians in the stage of national liberation and occupation but the resistance,” he added, pointing out that other emergency options are futile and have not succeeded. Shehab remains convinced that any national political project has no value unless it’s based on resistance under occupation.

    “We protect the state of unity by protecting the resistance. The resistance is a basic pillar to achieve internal Palestinian unity and maintain the continuous mobilization with the status of Al-Quds and what it represents in the Arab and Islamic conscience as part of our faith and our religion.”

    Shehab concluded by saying that “what happened is not limited to the Palestinian interior in Gaza, the West Bank, or the occupied interior, but the Palestinian diaspora also got involved, and this is an issue that cannot be ignored.”

    Hamas Rockets Target the Occupied Territories after Deadline for ‘Israeli’ Troop Withdrawal Expires

    Hamas Rockets Target the Occupied Territories after Deadline for ‘Israeli’ Troop Withdrawal Expires

    By Staff, Agencies

    The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas launched a barrage of rockets at Zionist targets following the occupation entity’s failure to observe a deadline set by the movement to pull out its troops from occupied East al-Quds and the holy al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

    On Monday evening, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, said in a statement that it had hit the occupied part of al-Quds with several rockets in retaliation for the Zionist “crimes and aggression in the Holy City, and its harassment of our people in Sheikh Jarrah and Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

    It added that this was a “message that the enemy should understand well.”

    Hamas had earlier on Monday issued a one-hour ultimatum for the Zionist regime to withdraw its forces from al-Quds and to end its crackdown on Palestinians in the flashpoint holy city by 6:00 p.m. local time, or Tel Aviv would face escalation.

    The rockets were launched minutes after the deadline passed.

    The Zionist military claimed in a statement that at least seven rockets had been fired from the besieged Gaza Strip against the occupied part of al-Quds, adding that one of the projectiles was intercepted and the rest did not cause any casualties or damage.

    Amid the developing situation, the Zionist parliament [Knesset], was also evacuated mid-session shortly after warning sirens rang across the occupied city following the rockets launching.

    More than 300 Palestinians were recently injured in brutal assaults by Zionist occupation police outside the al-Aqsa Mosque.

    Dozens of rockets were also reportedly fired from Gaza toward Zionist occupation settlements of Sderot, Ashkelon, and the neighboring settlements.

    Hundreds of Palestinians have been injured since Friday, when ‘Israeli’ occupation forces attacked Palestinian worshipers in al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

    The Palestinian Red Crescent said hundreds more were wounded in fresh confrontations on Monday that came ahead of a scheduled protest rally marking the Zionist regime’s 1967 occupation of the holy city.

    The provocations took a still dangerous turn after the forces attacked Palestinian homes in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood following a protest rally by Palestinians against a court ruling which allows Jewish settlers to take over Palestinian homes there.

    Separately on Monday evening, the Palestinian Health Ministry said in a statement that at least 20 Palestinians, including nine children, had been martyred in ‘Israeli’ airstrikes on the northern parts of the Gaza Strip.

    Hamas announced that a total of 100 missiles have been so far fired toward the occupied territories.

    The violent crackdown by the enemy’s occupation forces on Palestinians in al-Quds and the ensuing clashes have already sparked global concern.

    Islamic Jihad: Al-Aqsa Mosque Is A Red Line, the Resistance Will Respond to Any Attack Reciprocally

    Translated by Staff

    The Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement commented on the Resistance’s response to the “Israeli” attacks against the al-Aqsa Mosque and the Jerusalemites.

    In its official account on Twitter, the resistance movement affirmed that the Palestinians, with their cohesion and unity, would break the enemy’s thorn and thwart its aggressive plots.

    It further stressed that “the al-Aqsa Mosque is a red line, and the Jerusalemites and all the Palestinians supporting them, will not allow the settlers to desecrate al-Aqsa”.

    The Islamic Jihad movement believed that the “Israeli” raids on Gaza will not deter the resistance from carrying out its duties whenever needed.

    It asserted that “the Resistance will respond to any attack reciprocally, protect our people, and will not allow the enemy to bypass the rules of engagement”.

    The movement also indicated that “the Resistance proves once again its cohesion and engagement with popular accomplishment and its never-ending readiness to protect it and maintain its continuation”.
