#Israel is offering the possibility to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad to prove that it is equal to #Hamas in #Gaza in confronting the Israeli army, conducting and leading the highly organised retaliation against many Israeli settlements and cities.

Cosa sta succedendo a #Gaza?

L'esercito israeliano - nel corso dell'operazione denominata "Breaking dawn" - ha ucciso il comandante della #Jihad islamica palestinese nel nord della Striscia Tayasir Jabari. Insieme a lui sono morti altri 14 membri dell'organizzazione.
Il ministero della sanità di #Gaza traccia per ora un bilancio, destinato a salire, di 8 morti e 40 feriti.
Tra le vittime c'è anche una bambina di 5 anni.
"Arrivo di un nuovo giorno": così si può tradurre Breaking dawn. Aggiungo io: un nuovo giorno (e forse molti di più) di tensione, è quello che attende il #MedioOriente.
Il portavoce militare di #Israele ha infatti annunciato che "una allerta speciale" è stata dichiarata sul

El uso político que están haciendo sobre la nota del NYTimes amerita aclarar algunas cosas respecto al terrorismo, su forma de operar, las fuentes de inteligencia y el atentado a la #AMIA de 1994.

¿El Kirchnerismo sigue buscando desligar a Irán del tema?

En las últimas horas impactó en distintos medios internacionales una nota publicada por Ronen Bergman que es un gran analista internacional y con destacada trayectoria en Tel Aviv. En este tuit va el artículo original para que puedan leerlo.…
Lo primero que me parece importante diferenciar son las fuentes. Cualquier información puede venir de fuentes abiertas (como por ejemplo un artículo científico, redes sociales, otros medios de comunicación, etc). En inteligencia son llamadas OSINT "Open Source Intelligence".

I danced at the Western Wall on Jerusalem Day w/ fellow students from KBYeshiva in 1969 -- 53 y.a.
It's been a long tradition, but Jews were denied access before 1967.

I found this #Jerusalem "parade" from ~1915 when Jer'm was ruled by the Turks.
Jews were forcibly conscripted & marched into the Turkish Army. The army looted food & supplies from the Jews. (Ottoman Archives)

Jewish humiliation.
#JerusalemDay. Thread. 3/
With younger Jewish men drafted or in hiding, the Turks took out their rage against old Jewish men. The German officer who took these picture ~1915 captioned them "Jewish merchants" probably based on the anti-Semitic image of Shylock.

#Hamas spokesman for #Jerusalem, Muhammad Hamadeh, told Al-Aqsa TV:

There is no place for the Zionist occupation in Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Our people will not allow the Zionist enemy to impose a fait
accompli in Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The Battle of Saif Al-Quds made the Zionist enemy understand that Al-Aqsa Mosque is a red line, and this is a fixed rule that will not change.

👈 Our people will not
allow aggression against Al-Aqsa Mosque and will stand up to the "march of flags".

The battle between us and our enemy is a debate, and the resistance is ready to respond to the occupation.

The battle of awareness that #Hamas has been conducting since Operation Fences Keeper in May 2021 aims to serve a number of strategic purposes, one of

Member of the #Hamas Political Bureau and official of the #Jerusalem Affairs Office, Harun Nasir al-Din:

What the Zionist government is doing is playing with fire and the resistance will not allow these attacks.

What the Battle of the Sword of #Jerusalem brought about in the

Ich hatte gerade eine Diskussion mit einem Angestellten von @amnesty_de an einem Stand am Bahnhof Berlin-Südkreuz über den Vorwurf, dass #Israel angeblich ein „Apartheidsstaat“ ist. Ich erzähle kurz wie das Gespräch verlaufen ist: (Thread | Unbedingt durchlesen)
Zuerst habe ich ihn gefragt, inwiefern der Vorwurf der „#Apartheid“ bezogen auf Israel Sinn ergibt, wenn man bedenkt, dass Araber nicht nur hohe Positionen in allen Bereichen des öffentlichen Lebens haben, sondern dazu auch noch per Gesetz gleichberechtigt sind: Keine Antwort.
Dann habe ich gefragt, inwiefern der Vorwurf der „Apartheid“ Sinn ergibt, wenn man auf tatsächliche Apartheidsstaaten (früheres Südafrika bsp.) schaut, in welchen es eine klare Rassentrennung in allen Bereichen des öffentlichen Lebens gab. Seine Antwort: „Ich sehe Parallelen.“

When #Hamas Palestinian Leader in #Gaza Yehya Al-Sinwar said that "the Axis of Resistance will break the naval blockade imposed on Gaza", he is announcing that, first the first time in decades, the Palestinians will have a free exit to the sea. That means a new war with #Israel.
#Israel can't keep #Gaza under blockage forever, particularly when the Palestinians have also weapons to retaliate against Israel and want to become free from Israeli control.

This is the beginning of another war to defeat the #US & its allies and break their dominance.
It is starting in #Ukraine between the #US and #Russia. The next step is in #Palestine between the Palestinians and #Israel. The process will be painful and long but it has started and can no longer be stopped.

Expect a harsh reaction but nothing can stop this path anylonger.

2de vrijdag van Ramadan.
Na het gebed vannacht (4u) begonnen jongeren stenen en vuurwerk gooien in en vanuit de Tempelberg. Zie hier de voorbereidingen.
Zie hier de voorbereidingen.
Politie, tot nu toe terughoudend, moest optreden.
Zo zagen de 'voorbereidingen' voor de ordeverstoring in de Tempelberg eruit.
En zo werden de jongeren 'aangemoedigd' (opgehitst). #Tempelberg vanochtend.
" Met bloed en geest gaan we #Palestina bevrijden". #Hamas-vlaggen zichtbaar in beeld.

#Iran becomes the only foreign government so far to come out to openly endorse Prime Minister #ImranKhan's claim about a #US conspiracy to topple him. Tehran's state-run channel suggests that #Pakistan's opposition parties are executing American agenda:
Three weeks ago, #Nasrallah the chief of #Iran's main militant group #Hezbollah, globally designated as a terrorist organization, praised PM #ImranKhan in a TV speech. Pakistani @ARYNEWSOFFICIAL broadcast clips from militant chief's speech.

#Iran's state media is encouraging PM #ImranKhan to take on the West [], which serves no Pakistani interest, while #Tehran is busy negotiating a deal with Western powers that includes economic cooperation.

🧵On #Turkey-#Israel and talk of a #gas pipeline

After a tour in #Greece and #Cyprus, that aimed at appeasing their concerns, Israeli president was today visiting Turkey in the context of improving bilateral relations. Its the first visit by an Israeli president since 2008. >
Though allies since 1996, relations started to deteriorate as early as 2004 & took a huge blow in 2010 w the #MaviMarmara incident. Not going to get into that or the steps that followed towards normalization.

🇹🇷🇮🇱 | Le président israélien #Herzog arrive en #Turquie pour une visite officielle. C’est la première visite de ce type depuis 2008.

#Erdogan avait déclaré en début d’année qu’une « nouvelle ère pourrait commencer dans les relations israélo-turques » lors de cette visite.
🇹🇷🇮🇱 | #Erdogan accueille #Herzog à Ankara.

Les deux présidents ont échangé sur le domaine de l’énergie, de la défense, ainsi que sur les relations commerciale.

"Le Mouvement suit avec une grande inquiétude les visites des responsables et des dirigeants de l'entité sioniste dans un certain nombre de pays arabes et islamiques, dont la plus récente est la visite d'"Isaac Herzog" dans un certain nombre de pays."
