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

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.

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

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

On one of the very first Gaza vlogs I shared, we saw two guys who went for a pizza in Gaza City after buying a new tripod for their cellphone camera...
The #Gaza you don't see on the news.
When I saw this, I was like, whoa they have pizzerias in Gaza. Who knew? I didn't know back then that Gaza is full of thriving restaurants. Turns out the pizzeria in question is a well-known Gaza establishment called Pizza a-Taboon بيتزا الطابون.
Pizza a-Taboon in Gaza City بيتزا الطابون serves pizza (duh) and other things.
