I love following mega-popular Gaza teenage vloggers, sisters Maraam and Hayaa (nearly 1.7m subscribers). They update new fun vlogs every few days. Here they are doing some shopping for Eid, back in June 2018. They started with some chocolate.
The #Gaza you don't see on the news
Then they bought some cakes.
The #Gaza you don't see on the news.
And finished off with some decorative knick knacks.

A Day, a Life: When a Medic Was Killed in #Gaza in June, Was It an Accident?
NYT's in-depth prosecution of #Israel. Only deep in article do we read:
"Three medics down, all from one bullet. It seemed improbable. But The Times’s reconstruction confirmed nyti.ms/2RmANCJ
2/ "The bullet hit the ground in front of the medics, then fragmented, part of it ricocheting upward & piercing Ms. Najjar’s chest. It was fired from a sand berm used by Israeli snipers at least 120 yards from where the medics fell."

Not a directed, intentional murder by sniper.
3/ The NYT's indictment of #IDF is 5,500 words long & accompanied by 17 minute video! When was the last time NYT spent so many manhours & millions of $ on an investigation?

Not since Warren Commission on JFK's assassination have I seen such research, stopped frames, diagrams.

1/15. #Rouzan al-Najjar.
2/15. @NeilCollier and I first met #Rouzan in May, during a reporting trip to Gaza. She was the first woman to volunteer as a medic at the weekly Friday protests.
3/15. Weeks later, while at my desk in NY, I received this message from my colleague in Gaza @abuheweila: #Rouzan was killed by Israeli gunfire.

I noticed that Hamas is trying to whitewash its crimes while using the #WhatsHamas.
In this thread I will try to show only a glimpse of what what Hamas is really about.
On the 16th of April , 1993 a Hamas terrorist had detonated a car bomb near Mechola junction in the Jordan valley , killing himself , a Palestinian civilian bystander and injuring 8 IDF soldiers.
On the 6th of April 1994, during Israel’s Holocaust Memorial Day, a Hamas terrorist detonated a car bomb near a bus in the middle of a street in Afula.
8 civilians were murdered and 55 were wounded, mostly schoolchildren returning from Memorial ceremonies.

70 years ago today, the UN General Assembly passed Resn 194 (III) which resolved that, "the refugees [from Palestine] wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date & unispal.un.org/DPA/DPR/unispa… >

#Breakingnews:

#Hezbollah on full alert in #Lebanon and #Syria, calling its forces to be ready for war if #Israel initiate an aggression on Lebanon.

This measure came following Israel launching “Operation Northern Shield” to "destroy Hezbollah tunnels on the Israeli border."
#Hezbollah believes war is not imminent but mobilised its Special Forces already present in the south of #Lebanon.

#Israel said its ops is expected to last weeks, declared Northern Israel a military zone and sent its Israeli special forces.

I don't think @netanyahu, unwilling to continue a war with #Hamas, will engage in a foolish adventure against #Hezbollah in #Lebnon.

#Israel real message behind it? Could be to divert the attention since its PM is facing legal procedures.

We wait & see

Following the suspected Israeli strikes in #Syria, Hezbollah released a rare video threatening to retaliate against any Israeli attack in #Lebanon
The video depicts a series of targets, including several air bases, the Kirya (Israeli Military HQ in Tel Aviv) refineries in Haifa. #Israel #Lebanon
This is nothing new, and it's clear that Hezbollah's effort to build up its precision-guided missile arsenal is meant to try and overwhelm #Israel's air defense systems, and hit key infrastructure

We’ve just come out of #Gaza for a quick trip to see how things are after this week’s fighting. A couple of observations:
Hamas are buoyant about how this went down. News of Lieberman’s resignation is being blasted from all media channels as a sign of victory. Their leaders are going in front of bomb sites to do TV interviews etc.
People we spoke to were a) relieved there wasn’t a war b) basically supportive of Hamas and other factions’ decision to shoot rockets. They saw it as a legitimate response to the Israeli commando raid and felt pride that the factions fought Israel to a ceasefire.

One failed #IDF covert ops in #Gaza caused:
- The return of the "Axis of the resistance" stronger than ever, recovering losses caused by the war in #Syria
- The embarrassment to Arab states rushing towards #Israel
- A positive push to the Arab population
- the fall of Lieberman
The #US and #SaudiArabia plan to "sell the Palestinians" failed by a failed #IDF covert ops in #Gaza. @realDonaldTrump is tasting his first defeat in #Palestine.

The performance of #Gaza showed that #Israel is not ready for war against #Lebanon too.
#Israel should have limited itself to talk about its power rather than use it and fail.

Now we hear: #israel Iron Dome is not hermetic.

400 rockets launched and only 120 intercepted. How about 150,000 rockets and missiles launched by #Hezbollah?

#Lebanon can be tranquil.

#Israel showed its limitation in comparison to what #Palestinians can do:
1. No logo on al-Alam IED flag indication a unification of Palestinian groups against #Israel
2. Revealed possession of Guided anti-tank missile Kornet: Israel's nightmare in Lebanon 2006
2/+
3. #Palestinians fired 400 rockets knowing how difficult is to smuggle these into #Gaza. A #Hezbollah exchange of experience, using a small part of its capability and wait for development
4. Palestinians used a new rocket revealing more capability

5. The cause of #Palestine is back on its track. #ISIS kidnapped the world attention for 5 years and #Hamas lost its main cause during the world attempt - but failed - to change the regime in #Syria.

#Palestine #Israel: new Rule of Engagement
Palestinian attack with a Kornet anti-tank guided missile will be shown shortly.
"Joint Ops Room: Mujahideen targetted an Israeli bus carrying soldiers in Arash Mughlasim, east of #Jabalia, that killed/ wounded those inside".
#Israel Jets are attacking #Gaza now and #palestinian groups are expected to respond.

#Qassam #Hamas waited for 30 soldiers to leave the Israeli bus, fired its Kornet when only 1 soldier was in. The Message is clear. Palestinians (& Hezbollah) have learned to hit #Israel without driving it out of control, limiting the hit at the beginning
