Islamic Jihad vows retaliation for Israeli attack

1396/8/23 | 04:08
  Palestine’s Islamic Jihad Movement slammed the fresh Israeli threats as a declaration of war, saying the Tel Aviv regime will have to pay the price for a military attack on a tunnel in Gaza that killed 12 members of the Islamic Jihad and Hamas some two weeks ago.     “Israel has killed 12 Palestinians in Gaza and another one in the West (Bank) over the last two weeks… When they kill men of the resistance, and especially from Islamic Jihad, we have no other choice but to punish the occupier, and continue to strengthen the buildup ...

Egypt backtracks on opening Gaza border

1396/7/25 | 04:08
  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 | 04:08
  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 | 04:08
  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.

Palestinian Authority Threatens to Cut All Gaza Funds

1396/5/31 | 04:08
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 | 04:08
  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 | 04:08
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 ...

After getting a second opinion, the doctor decided ...

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

1396/4/11 | 04:08
  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 | 04:08
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 ...

What is the goal behind the Gaza island plan?

1396/1/13 | 04:08
  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 ...

1395/12/18 | 04:08
  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.

1395/6/14 | 04:08
The Israeli military has cleared its troops of any wrongdoing in several deadly incidents that took place during the 2014 Gaza war.

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 ...

At least six Palestinians have been shot dead and dozens more injured by Israeli forces as hundreds of them demonstrated along the border in the eastern Gaza Strip.

The Israeli parliament has approved a law that imposes up to 20 years in prison on people convicted of throwing rocks at moving vehicles, drawing condemnation from Palestinian activists and officials.

Gaza War crimes report expose UN's partiality

1394/4/4 | 04:08
SHAFAQNA PAKISTAN (Shia News Agency)-A United Nations Commission of Inquiry on last summer’s war in the Gaza Strip — taking pains to be evenhanded — found that both Israel and Hamas  were responsible for violations of international law that could amount to war crimes. But each side interpreted the commission’s long-awaited report according to its own version of the Middle East conflict. In the 217-page report, submitted on Monday to the United Nations Human Rights Council, the two commissioners said the militants clearly wanted to ...
