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

Hezbollah in Lebanon: US hegemony is over ejmagnier.com/2018/11/21/hez…
#Uk and #Germany have held secret meetings with #Hezbollah leaders during the visits of their official delegations to Beirut.

ejmagnier.com/2018/11/21/hez…
In #Iraq, #ISIS grew under the watchful and complaisant eyes of the #US establishment that considered ISIS a strategic asset, oblivious to how this unscrupulous policy would backfire against its interests in the Middle East.

This is one of those Israelis who was there @eb95318554 "My job title is responsible for hazardous materials and risk assessments and during that time I'm also firefighter."
He @eb95318554 was separated from his family along with many others who have been putting out the fires on the #Gaza border since they began last March.
During that time Israelis often don't even know what's being reported on #socialmedia and on the news @eb95318554 was one of several I communicated with during that time. He and those working with him heard the @RocketsOnIsrael heard the Code Reds coming in.

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

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.

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

1/ The #Saudi kidnapping of #Khashoggi reminds me of the kidnapping of #Hariri. It is meant to embarrass the other party, this time the gov of #Turkey, and provoke a diplomatic crisis. This is drug Cartel methods. It has no other goal than to assert power over the other.
2/ However, resorting to these methods to assert power in the political and international affairs sphere is always a sign of weakness and a sign of a power in crisis. #SaudiArabia

1. As @DanielBShapiro notes, this is a hostile act to ... Israel. And of course the Palestinian people. The US is ceding space to #Hamas in #Gaza. No security professional recommends an aid cut off in Gaza - none.

2. To the doubters, those without facts @tanstaaflpnw Read the GAO report on @usaid assistance to the Palestinians. gao.gov/assets/700/693…. @USAIDWBG had the highest level of accountability, results and integrity in @usaid. Clean @USGAO audits are the gold standard.
3. Name other operating units anywhere in the USG where year in and year out IG and @USGAO regularly report clean audits? Fact of the matter @USAIDWBG is the best in the business. @jdgreenblatt45 @USAIDMiddleEast

This is Avera Mengistu, a Jewish Israeli of Ethiopian descent who suffers from mental illness. He turned 32 today.

His family & friends can't celebrate his birthday with him: He is being held captive in #Gaza by Hamas in violation of international law and basic human decency.
Four gears ago, #Hamas took Avera - an innocent civilian - as a prisoner. Since then, his family have heard nothing from him. They have no proof that he's even alive, as the International Red Cross has been denied access to him.

Locked up in #Gaza for the crime of being Jewish.
Is this "freedom fighting"? Is this "resisting #occupation"? No and no. This is depraved, wicked, brutal and utterly wrong.

Thread:
People keep asking me why is #Israel negotiating with #Hamas. While Israel refuses to confirm its negotiating with the terrorist organization the reality on the ground suggests otherwise. Here are my thoughts on the subject.
1. The @netanyahu government doesn’t want another war with Gaza, Unless it will fundamentally change something on the ground. It appears that the leaders don’t believe that change will come from war.
2. All previous attempts to try and not impede on talks between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority have left Israel at the mercy of those talks and have usually ended up in rocket fire at Israel.

Interestingly, #Hamas is right about #Fatah’s intentions. jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-C…
#Hamas is not authorized to sign any agreement with #Israel because it has no representative status,” a senior Fatah official in Ramallah told The Jerusalem Post. “The Palestinian Authority is the only legitimate party representing the Palestinians.”
What if we just got #Fatah and #Hamas their own Attaché badges like Edward Tavner on the show, Patriot? We could engrave, “Legitimate Palestinian Representative,” on it instead. 💡

Here’s how Abbas will get Palestinians killed: He is again claiming something HE KNOWS is utter bull$h*t, this time about Islam’s holiest site in #Jerusalem. His brainwashed population will riot. #Israel will defend itself. Abbas, like #Hamas, has to go. jpost.com/Israel-News/Ab…
Even more cynical is that while Abbas will foment riots in #Jerusalem based on his own lies, he will take US funding to rebuild #Gaza - because from America’s point of view, it’s better to have a corrupt thug ruling Palestinians than it is #Hamas. jpost.com/Breaking-News/…
Even better, Abbas’ PLO discusses severing ties with #Israel as it mulls accepting a US financial handout to strengthen it in #Gaza, while lying to the Palestinian people in the West Bank to spark a riot in #Jerusalem. I think we’ve had enough. jpost.com/Israel-News/PL…

Extraordinary.

Acc. to @BarakRavid sources, #Russia has told #Israel that it'll seek to force #Iran 100km away from #Israeli-held 1974 #Golan line.

That means all territory west of the red line on map (L).

= A truly wild fantasy.

Look where #Iran is now (R); per @ETANA_Syria:
@BarakRavid @ETANA_Syria #Israel has shot down an #Assad regime Sukhoi fighter jet, which took off from T4 Airbase & flew 2km into Israeli airspace.

x2 Patriot SAM missiles were used & multiple messages sent in multiple languages prior to shoot-down.

Another example of #Russia’s value in de-escalation.
@BarakRavid @ETANA_Syria #pt: Just 36hrs ago was #Israel's first operational use of the "David’s Sling" SAM system, used to down #Assad ballistic missiles.

Yesterday, #Russia’s MFA & MOD visited #Jerusalem to firm-up their security arrangements with #Israel.

I wrote that #Moscow is incapable - clearly.

1/7 #Report
According to Palestinian reports, at approximately 18:00 hours, an #IDF airstrike struck downtown Gaza City. Two teens were killed as a result of the strike. Reports claimed an empty structure, a children’s park and a mosque were damaged. #Gaza #Israel #Hamas #IDF

The children’s park in reality is #Qassam Brigade’s “Battalions Square” and the teens who died were inside the structure circled in red. Beside it is the mosque circled in blue which was damaged by the strike.

Why did the #IDF target this site with air strikes? How does the #IDF know this site is used by #Qassam Brigades? Can we just take their word for it? Here is video of the actual strike.

Today's @UN meeting will totally reject this @nikkihaley text: "Condemns Hamas for repeatedly firing rockets into Israel & for inciting violence along the boundary fence, thereby putting civilians at risk, demands that Hamas cease all violent activity and provocative actions..."
"...further condemns the diversion of resources in Gaza to construct military infrastructure, including tunnels to infiltrate Israel and equipment to launch rockets into civilian areas, when such resources could have addressed the critical needs of the civilian population..."
"...and expresses grave concern about the destruction of the Kerem Shalom crossing by actors in Gaza, which has severely hindered deliveries of food and fuel for the people of Gaza."
