While Razan lost her life, Nikki Hayley lost her humanity

1397/3/13 | 12:31
Last Friday, 1 June, a Palestinian volunteer medic, Razan Al Najar, was fasting and tending to the wounded at Gaza’s artificial fence with Israel. Thousands of miles away, the US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Hayley, was scheming on behalf of Israel at the world body. The day ended with martyrdom and glory for Razan and shame and humiliation for Nikki. Just like she had done since the start of the Great March of Return on 30 March, Razan said goodbye to her family to go to the border, knowing that her skills would undoubtedly be called upon ...

Why Arab Muslim states are silent on Gaza Massacre?

1397/2/27 | 12:31
  Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has censured certain Arab and Muslim countries for remaining tight-lipped on the Israeli regime’s latest crimes against Palestinian protesters seeking their right to repatriation. Speaking at a government meeting on Wednesday, Rouhani expressed regret that certain regional Arab countries have kept silent on Israel’s atrocities, while certain Muslim states have simply chosen to turn a blind eye and some others have even stated that the regime “legitimately defended itself.” Israeli military forces ...

1397/2/25 | 12:31

Israel declares Gaza protests 'state of war': Paper

1397/2/14 | 12:31
  Israel says protests near the Gaza fence amount to an act of war, and thus it is right to respond fatally to the demonstrations in which 45 Palestinians have been killed in recent weeks.   The daily Ha’aretz cited a regime statement as saying that Tel Aviv sees the ongoing "March of Return" protests as “part of hostile acts by Hamas against Israel.” The statement came in response to a High Court petition filed by human rights groups, declaring that Israel "opposes the applying of human rights law during an armed conflict.” "The ...

Crocodile tears for Gaza

1397/1/16 | 12:31
  Most of the international community is miffed with Israel. Not in general, mind you. Just regarding the weekend violence directed against unarmed protestors. Indeed, the EU and UN are all but desk-thumping their outrage over Tel Aviv’s flat-out refusal to investigate its military for disproportionate use of force that left up to 17 Palestinians dead and some 1,100 injured. The US, for its part is playing along with Mr Netanyahu and went as far as blocking a Security Council resolution towards this end. All of which is good news. At ...

Israeli carnage raises fears of Gaza conflagration

1397/1/13 | 12:31

Several dozen protesters suffered suffocation due to inhaling teargas. Clashes have been ongoing since Friday when tens of thousands of Palestinians began a six-week ...

Erdogan calls Netanyahu 'terrorist' over Gaza deaths

1397/1/13 | 12:31
  Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday of being “a terrorist” after the Israeli prime minister rejected Ankara’s “moral lessons” over deadly clashes in Gaza. “Hey Netanyahu! You are an occupier. And it is as an occupier that are you are on those lands. At the same time, you are a terrorist,” Erdogan said in a televised speech in Adana, southern Turkey. “What you do to the oppressed Palestinians will be part of history and we will never forget it,” he said, adding: “The Israeli ...

1397/1/11 | 12:31

Recognise Gaza as independent state says former Israeli major general

1397/1/8 | 12:31
A former head of Israel’s National Security Council has urged the government to recognise and treat the Gaza Strip as a de-facto independent state. Writing in Yediot Ahronoth, former Major-General Giora Eiland argued that Israel needs to take the “initiative, on the basis that “the situation [in Gaza] is unstable and could deteriorate very soon”. According to Eiland, Gaza “has been a de-facto independent state” since 2007, with “a defined area; an efficient central government; an independent foreign policy; and an army of its ...

‘Only a matter of time before Israel military confrontation with Gaza’

1397/1/7 | 12:31

During a meeting with the new graduates of Yonatan, a pre-army preparatory programme, he said: “Each passing day gets us farther away from the previous campaign, but closer to the next one. It’s only a matter of time.” He added: “We paid a heavy price in ‘Operation Protective Edge’. You ...

1396/12/14 | 12:31

War Could Break Out in Gaza in Hours

1396/11/17 | 12:31
  Gaza is just days or even hours away from war, Palestinian factions warned, as tensions build between the militant group Hamas and Israel.

In preparation, ...

The ISIS war against Hamas in Gaza

1396/11/7 | 12:31
  At his ridiculous address to the UN General Assembly in 2014, Israel’s sadistic and deluded Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, claimed that, “ISIS and Hamas are branches of the same poisonous tree.” He continued: “When it comes to its ultimate goals, Hamas is ISIS, and ISIS is Hamas.”   Since then, this has been a regular theme of Israel’s inept propaganda. The Zionist state has been haemorrhaging international support for years now. Its brutal and racist actions against Palestinians mean that the state has become ...

Daesh declares war with Hamas

1396/10/16 | 12:31
  The Egyptian wing of Daesh Takfiri terrorists has released a new execution video, declaring war on the Palestinian Hamas resistance movement based in Gaza. The video, released Wednesday, purports to show the execution of a man who Daesh claims cooperated with Hamas’ armed wing.   “Never surrender to them.

Bomb their courts and their security locations, for these are the pillars of tyranny that prop up its throne,” said one of the militants in the video.   The Egyptian ...

Hamas: Reconciliation agreement with Fatah ‘collapsing’

1396/10/2 | 12:31

Who like North Korea: Kim Jong Un finds grateful fans in Gaza

1396/9/28 | 12:31
  An unusual sight welcomes patrons of a shawarma restaurant in Gaza’s Jabaliya refugee camp. A poster showing North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next to a North Korean and a Palestinian flag announces a special offer: an 80 percent discount to North Korean customers.   While there are no North Koreans in Gaza, the gesture is meant to show gratitude toward the country for condemning President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem, a city holy to Jews, Muslims and Christians, as the capital of Israel.   “We are ...

70% of Palestinians want Abbas to resign immediately

1396/9/23 | 12:31
Some 70 per cent of Palestinians in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip want President Mahmoud Abbas to resign immediately, according to a new poll by the Palestinian Centre for Policy and Survey Research conducted 7-10 December.   The poll, conducted in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) in the immediate aftermath of US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, makes grim reading for Abbas, with those demanding his resignation up three points from September.   Abbas’ ...

Gaza protests against Bahrain delegation in Jerusalem

1396/9/21 | 12:31
  Scores of Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip today held protests at the Beit Hanoun crossing against the arrival of a Bahraini delegation to Israel yesterday.   Bahraini clerics arrived in Israel yesterday in what officials have described as a personal trip, however many believe the timing of the tour shows that it is an effort to improve relations between the Bahraini government and Israel.   The protesters called for banning the delegation should it decide to visit Gaza. They stressed that they are seen as traitors ...

1396/9/20 | 12:31

1396/8/23 | 12:31

1396/7/25 | 12:31
  Egyptian authorities announced yesterday that they had decided to postpone the opening of the Rafah border with the Gaza Strip after six soldiers were killed in the Sinai province, according to the Palestinian Information Centre.   Despite planning to open the crossing for four days from today, Hesham Udwan, head of the Commission of Crossings and Borders, notified Gazan authorities of the change after clashes between militants and the Egyptian army in the region.   Egypt had announced that the crossing was to be opened ...

Is Abbas ready to end his punishment of Gaza?

1396/6/31 | 12:31
  As the leader of the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement, Ismail Haniyeh, made his way back to the Gaza Strip after an 11-day trip to Cairo, during which he announced the dissolution of the administrative committee in Gaza and agreed to reconcile with Fatah, the residents of the territory waited for the punishing measures taken against them by Ramallah to be cancelled. They are still waiting.     Reconciliation, it seems, is not that easy. Life in Gaza has become intolerable due to the Israeli-led siege and the internal ...

15 Gazans die after Israel denies them treatment

1396/6/9 | 12:31
  Some 15 Gaza residents have died since the start of 2017 after Israel denied terminally ill patients the necessary permits to travel outside the besieged Strip for medical treatment.     Al-Mezan Centre for Human Rights revealed the figures in a statement yesterday, condemning the Israeli blockade on the coastal enclave that has resulted in its healthcare service being brought “to its knees”, in the words of the World Health Organisation. Al-Mezan cited the cases of two women who were refused travel documentation on ...

Palestinian Authority Threatens to Cut All Gaza Funds

1396/5/31 | 12:31
Seeking to increase pressure on Hamas to transfer control over the Gaza Strip to him, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has told members of Israel’s Meretz Party that if Hamas doesn’t comply, he intends to cut all funding to the besieged strip.   Abbas said he’d already cut some 25% from the annual $1.5 billion in Gaza spending, and that he is prepared to “gradually” increase that amount in the future. He added that he was totally willing to go up to a 100% cut, defunding the strip outright. Abbas tried to make ...

Inner conflicts: Is PA committing treason to Palestine cause?

1396/5/19 | 12:31
  Fissures within the Palestinian camp also need to be addressed to form a united front against the Israeli occupation and to secure the Palestinian people’s legitimate rights.  In this regard, Mahmoud Abbas’s recent statement to step up sanctions on Gaza — ruled by Fatah’s rival Hamas — is unfortunate. While many states recognise the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority based in the West Bank as the ‘genuine leadership’ of the Palestinians, Hamas has been running Gaza’s affairs since it took over the tiny coastal strip in ...

Abbas Visits Egypt to Try to Derail Hamas Rapprochement

1396/4/21 | 12:31
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has made an “emergency” visit to Cairo this weekend to meet with Egypt junta leader Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, seeking “clarification” on Egypt’s growing rapprochement with Hamas, and hoping to derail the move. Egypt recently reopened the Gaza border crossing, which threatens to derail Abbas’ efforts to destabilize the Gaza Strip and try to force Hamas to relinquish control. The risks have gotten even bigger for Abbas, however, with key rival Mohammed Dahlan now working on a power-sharing ...

1396/4/15 | 12:31
On Tuesday 30 May I had a sudden severe pain in my left ear. It could not sleep as I felt the pain spread all over my body.

In the morning, after confirming the appointment, I headed to the ENT clinic at Gaza’s largest hospital. The doctor found that I had a sever inflammation in my eardrum because of a build up of pus. After getting a second opinion, the doctor decided ...

Abbas’ siege on Gaza: The goals and the financial benefits

1396/4/11 | 12:31
  Since Hamas’ victory in the parliamentary elections on 25 January 2006, the president of the PLO, Mahmoud Abbas, has been collaborating with the forces of the occupation to place Gaza under siege for approximately ten years now.   These endeavours – directly or indirectly – have been aiming to suffocate Palestinian resistance and any potential to establish a viable and independent Palestinian state. Abbas’ latest measures, which include cutting the salaries of the families of martyrs and the wounded, as well as all employees, ...

Israel Cuts Gaza Electricity at Abbas’ Request

1396/3/25 | 12:31
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ effort to cut electricity to the Gaza Strip as a means of “pressuring” Hamas to hand over control of the region to him is finally getting support from Israel’s security cabinet, which today signed off on a plan to cut exports to the Gaza Strip by 40%, meaning about 45 minutes less of electricity per day in a strip that already is in a state of blackout more than three-quarters of the time.     Abbas had originally sought a 100% cut in Gaza’s electricity, but Israel refused, citing ...

1396/3/21 | 12:31

What is the goal behind the Gaza island plan?

1396/1/13 | 12:31
  An Israeli minister has gone against the tide in proposing a way he says would alleviate conditions in the Gaza Strip while maintaining his country's security control -- build an island nearby.     The unusual proposal has gained backing among some in the Israeli security establishment, but he is a long way from convincing everyone. Those concerned with Palestinian rights say it would do little to address the root of the problem and question whether it would further separate the Gaza Strip from the West Bank -- making a ...

Demand to probe Hamas leader on war crimes: Is Israel making fun of Muslims?

1395/12/18 | 12:31
  On Monday, Calev Myers, the founder of the Zionist regime funded Jerusalem Institute of Justice, filed a complaint the International Criminal Court (ICC), a ZOG judicial set-up, against former Hamas prime minister in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh.    “After nearly a half century of impunity, it’s time that those responsible for some of the gravest crimes, whether against Palestinians or Israelis, pay the price.

1395/11/22 | 12:31
  Israel has banned anaesthetic gas from entering the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Ministry of Health revealed yesterday.     This is the third time that the occupation has prevented Nitrous Oxide (nitrox) gas, which is used for patients during surgery, from entering the besieged enclave, the ministry’s spokesman, Ashraf Al-Qidra, said. The ban means a number of urgent medical procedures have now been halted, he explained.     There are currently 200 patients awaiting urgent medical treatment in Gaza’s hospitals, ...

Gaza massacre: The cheaper blood of Muslims

1395/6/14 | 12:31
The Israeli military has cleared its troops of any wrongdoing in several deadly incidents that took place during the 2014 Gaza war. Palestine has rejected the findings and is calling for war crime charges at the International Criminal Court. Known as Operation Protective Edge, Israel launched the 2014 war in response to weeks of heavy rocket fire by Palestinian militants in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip. The conflict lasted only a matter of seven weeks. However, more than 2,200 Palestinians and 73 Israelis were killed. And there were ...

Attack on Gaza: No end to Unbridled Israeli hostilities

1395/4/15 | 12:31
  Israeli air strikes hit four sites in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, causing damage but no injuries, officials said.
