In 1967, #Israel lost 776 soldiers and occupied the Sinai peninsula, the Golan Heights, the West Bank, Gaza & East Jerusalem in only 6-days. It defeated Egypt, Jordan, & Syria.
In 2023, Israel lost over 1000 soldiers and didn't occupy 360 sqm against a resistance group in #Gaza.
In 2023, the #US, #UK, #France, #Germany & #Italy r in an operations room in Tel Aviv supporting #Israel. The US has sent 3 aircraft carriers along with significant naval support. 2000 Delta Force is in Israel, & the US military base is providing intelligence & planning support.

In my 35 years of covering wars, I have never seen criminals like the Israelis boasting about their crimes, bragging about them on social media and not being held accountable by nations worldwide, especially here in Europe, that pretend there are laws.
It is time for the world to support the Palestinians by arming them to defeat these criminal cowards, the Israelis, who run like rabbits when confronted face to face.
The level of Israeli criminality is unimaginable.

#Israel admits no Israeli prisoners were found in Al-Shifa hospital stormed by Israeli occupation forces in northern #Gaza. The #US & western officials who supported & recycled the Israeli information about the hospital containing Hamas HQ & prisoners lied & lost all credibility.
#Israel admitted that its occupation forces were not exposed to gunfire while storming & searching Al-Shifa hospital. All the lies produced in recent weeks to "justify the bombing of the hospital" were as expected. Israel wants to evacuate patients and doctors to force an exodus.

For those who don't remember, #Israel's genocide and invasion is business as usual:
In 1982, the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) invaded #Beirut #Lebanon and besieged it for 88 days, killing an estimated 18,000 people. Not a drop of water or a piece of bread was allowed in.
The Israeli criminal mind: (1982) One weekend, I left besieged #Beirut to take a day off from the bombing before the siege. When I returned, the Israelis surrounded the city and prevented anyone from going in or out. When I insisted on going back into the city of #Beirut to do my job as a journalist, the Israeli officer let me in through a small side street next to the former Lebanese parliament on Museum Street, where I saw many people killed on the way and bodies lying everywhere. I walked between the bodies and the rubble and couldn't understand why there were so many bodies until I got to the other side, and the resistance forces told me that I had just walked into a minefield.

When I see/hear the bombs falling on #Gaza, I really feel for the people living in such a horrible situation. I have lived under Israeli bombing in many wars. It cannot be described. You are full of anger towards those who are inflicting pain and causing so much destruction.
In fact, you think of those bombarding the area where you are that they can't be human because human beings cannot be so dehumanised and love so much destruction and killing. This is what #Israel is doing in #Gaza against its 2.3 million people.

Pay attention, please: I have seen many Israeli wars on the ground and have enough experience to understand what is the Israeli aim.
#Israel is asking the Palestinians of Jabalya camp in the northeast to leave & head south beyond Gaza Valley., far from trying to save them. +
The evacuation of the Jabalya camp (to begin with, other areas in the north will be asked to follow) will aim to
1. Israel ethnically cleansing the north. 2. To reduce its casualties as it intends to occupy the North.

I'm going to explain how the #Israeli occupation forces are attacking #Gaza. There r 3 main axes.
1st : South of Al-Zeytoun neighbourhood. The aim is to reach al-Rashid Street, which descends from the northwest to the N10, & cut Gaza in two. As u can see, this is a soft area.
2D Front: Breaking through the wall of #Gaza and heading northwest towards al-Shati camp to meet the invading forces advancing from the N10-Zeytoun neighbourhood. The road is covered by air, naval and tank fire.

As it continues its indiscriminate bombardment of #Gaza, #Israel is doing all it can to incite the West Bank to rise up against the Israeli army. The only difference is that Mahmoud Abbas has done his best to disarm the resistance in the West Bank, leaving Palestinians vulnerable to Israeli atrocities.
More than 100 Palestinians were killed in the West Bank, 1,500 were arrested, including minors, and many properties were destroyed by the weakest army in the Middle East, capable of killing children, women and disarmed men but defeated by a small group on the 7th of October.

#Israel PM @Netanyahu said: "I say to #Iran and #Hezbollah, be aware".
Netanyahu said 32 times in the last days that the #US is sending a carrier (now 2) to help him against Hezbollah and Iran, only because he cannot fight on one front. Can you imagine multiple fronts?
#Israel's PM said that "they are trying to exterminate us" when Israel killed 150,000 Palestinians and thousands of Lebanese in his wars and genocidal killing.

I share the @UN resolutions that #Israel never respected:
December 11: Resolution 194: establishes Conciliation Commission; protection of and free access to Jerusalem and other Holy Places; Resolves that the refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or property damage which, under principles of international law or in equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible.
December 9: Resolution 303(IV): International Regime for Jerusalem.
December 10: Resolution 356: Jerusalem.
July 4: Resolution 2253 (ES-V): Condemns Israel's measures to change the status of Jerusalem as invalid.
December 19: Resolution 2443: Establishes the Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian People.

A deal concluded with #Egypt, #Qatar, #Israel and the Palestinians leadership in #Gaza to allow all foreign nationals to leave Gaza in exchange for the entry of humanitarian aid into the besieged city.
Moreover, all countries are evacuating their nationals from #Israel via Ben Gurion Tel Aviv before the ground assault on #Gaza, which is undoubtedly confirmed. Many nations fear a giant war in the Middle East and potentially spill over to other countries.

#Israel 1953 Khan Younis Massacre in #Gaza:
Palestinian sources reported that at least 500 Palestinians were massacred in Khan Younis while the UN documented the number of Palestinians killed on that day as 275, which it described as “credible”.
Palestinian residents in Rafah were killed after the loudspeakers of the occupation military vehicles called on all youths and men from the age of 16 ,o the age of 50 to leave their homes, the soldiers firing at them with automatic weapons.
#Israel's long experience in Terrorism Testimonies from the censored Deir Yassin massacre: 'They piled bodies and burned them'. Researchers state that 110 inhabitants of the village, among them women, children and elderly people, were killed. haaretz.com/israel-news/20…

I've been studying terrorism and counter-terrorism for more than two decades. I've always seen a disgusting, inhuman and barbaric terrorist rampage carried out by #Israel since 1948, including against the Palestinians and the Lebanese, sickly celebrated every day by the world & all the apologists via social media.
Nothing new really. The Zionists were the first to introduce Terrorism in #Palestine in 1931 creating the Irgun, or Etzel, a Zionist paramilitary organization that operated in Mandate Palestine and then Israel. It was an offshoot of the older and larger Jewish paramilitary organization Haganah.
The victims of the Holocaust became the persecutors, inflicting murder, torture and brutality on Palestinians of all ages before the impotent eyes of the world, and war and destruction on #Lebanon, in irresponsible violation of international law and the UN Charter.
The difference today is that it is not #Israel that started the attack. That is why the Israelis and their supporters are panicked, confused, out of control and in crisis. But when they regained control, with the support of the Western world, they returned to their collective punishment and mass murder, indiscriminately killing Palestinian civilians as they have become accustomed to doing. #ISIS's total killings and exodus are less than Israel's total killings and exodus of Palestinians and Lebanese.
#Israel's bombs beheaded civilians, burned babies and the elderly to death & destroyed families in their kitchens, beds and shelters. Whole buildings crushed dozens of people under the rubble.
Because of the #US unlimited support, nobody drops 6000 bombs with 6000 tonnes of explosives in 4 days but Israel a destructive power which enjoys unlimited support and celebration by the Israelis and the Zionists worldwide.

#Israel is incapable of fighting on multiple fronts, even with the #US carrier. @Netanyahu should negotiate now orals #Hezbollah's precision missiles targets hitting Tel Aviv and the zone around it will cripple #Israel's infrastructure for very long.
If #Israel uses drones over #Lebanon, #Hezbollah will use the same over the settlements and the military barracks. How deep Israel will hit (empty) targets inside the south of Lebanon, Hezbollah will hit deeper. The Israeli military command needs to think carefully how to react.

To prepare for a ground attack on #Gaza and have fewer people in the attacked area, #Israel is advertising for another Palestinian exodus. The IDF Spokesman, Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari, invited Gaza Strip's residents to Flee towards Egypt Border Checkpoints crossing in Rafah.
The solution is undoubtedly not evacuating #Gaza from its population to #Egypt and allowing #Israel to occupy further Palestinian territories. The solution for #Israel is to stop bombing civilians and treat them like animals, as Israel's Defence Minister said he would.

#BreakingNews: #Israel killed a #Hezbollah militant on the Lebanese borders. There is no longer any doubt that Hezbollah has the reason to retaliate. The reason is crystal clear now. Many Lebanese are leaving the South of #Lebanon, expecting a retaliation.
#Hezbollah militant Hosam Mohammad Ibrahim was killed this afternoon by an Israeli bombing in the south of #Lebanon. Hezbollah announced the killing officially. Israel knows what that means now. The Israeli northern front commander wanted to flex his muscles to prove he was different from the southern commander on the Gaza front.

#Israel is firing against "Gost militants" on the borders with #Lebanon. A cat or a wild animal is triggering an Israeli-intensive bombing and a hallucination of "infiltration". The tension of the Israeli soldiers, rightly very afraid, is so high that they don't realise the attack would first come from the sky and not through the fence, to start with.
Let me explain what happened on the borders between #Lebanon and #Hezbollah:
When Hezbollah bombed the Israeli Radar Hill in the occupied Shebaa Farms and Kfarshouba hills, Israel retaliated by bombing next to Hezbollah's tent as a warning shot. This procedure was adopted by Israel in the first years of the war in #Syria. Israel would bomb meters ahead of a Hezbollah truck carrying weapons, and the driver would abandon it. So, Israel avoids human casualties for fear of Hezbollah retaliation.
The Hezbollah tent drove Israel to ask the US intervention for Hezbollah to remove it, claiming it is an Israeli territory.
When Israel bombed meters ahead of the tents, the Hezbollah militants abandoned the tent so Israel was able to destroy it.
Hezbollah instructed the militants to dress in another tent in the same place and remain in it if Israel sends a warning. This is precisely what happened in the next hour. However, when Israel shot a warning bomb, Hezbollah remained in the tent. So Israel did nothing, for fear of killing Hezbollah that is looking for any pretext to unleash hell on Israel.
Today, Israel bombed empty locations on the Lebanese borders and destroyed a known empty location at Dheira village.
This escalation will ultimately lead to a broader confrontation in due course.

Palestinians have the right to defend themselves.
They have been dying for the last 75 years. Sending Israeli troops to #Gaza will change nothing. On the contrary, instead of dying slowly, humiliated, & begging, they were satisfied to show the world the IDF humiliated & defeated.
We are on day 3. Many things can still happen, and if @Natanyahu doesn't stop now, many surprises will hit him very hard, and he will end up, sooner or later, negotiating. Whatever happens, this is the end of Netanyahu's political future, and he will go to jail afterwards.

#Israel said #Hamas attacked its military Barracks & settlements, killing in a few hours at least 400 people, 4 Brigadier Generals & officers operating among the elite forces. A memorable hit to the "invincible" Israeli Army.
FT IDF Brigadier General Nimrod Aloni was captured.
# Israel's Prime Minister, the armed forces commander, announced the "State of War" without consulting the government's opinion and waiting for a collective decision. He has the legal right to do so, but a considerable escalation is looming. The question: on how many fronts?

According to my information, there will be more escalation from #Lebanon today and every day until @netanyahu accepts what has happened and negotiates. Otherwise, we are going towards an all-out war. Will explain further in my forthcoming article how #Israel fell into a trap.
There will be many pretexts for further confrontation between #Hezbollah and #Israel.

#Israel is hungry for revenge and blood. Its objective is to destroy the infrastructure & civilian constructions. He has hundreds, yes 100s, of Israeli prisoners, spread in #Gaza. He will apply the Hannibal Directive, carelessly killing his own soldiers. haaretz.com/2014-08-03/ty-…
Sooner or later, #Israel will negotiate the 100s of prisoners' release. Instead, it is bombing the homes of #Hamas leaders, as usual, w/ no strategic values, & #Gaza towers. Netanyahu said he is cutting Gaza's water & electricity, violating international laws & civ human rights.
