ISRAELI WARPLANES ATTACK NEW TARGETS IN GAZA

Gaza (QNN) – Israeli warplanes resumed airstrikes on Monday evening against Palestinian resistance outposts in the besieged Gaza Strip, causing damage but no casualties.

The fresh airstrikes occurred shortly after the Israeli occupation’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu concluded a security meeting in Tel Aviv today.

The Palestinian news agency WAFA said Israeli drones and fighter jets bombed several locations in Khan Yunis city in the south of the Gaza Strip. There were no immediate reports of injuries even though heavy damage to the locations was reported.

The renewed attacks came on the heels of late last night and early this morning attacks on the Gaza Strip following the Israeli army killing yesterday of a Palestinian in Khan Yunis and mutilating his body with a bulldozer, which provoked rocket attacks by armed groups based in Gaza.

The Delusion of Palestinian Independence Through The Deal of Century

US President Donald Trump and Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu take part in an announcement of Trump’s Middle East peace plan in the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC on January 28, 2020. – Trump declared that Israel was taking a “big step towards peace” as he unveiled a plan aimed at solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “Today, Israel takes a big step towards peace,” Trump said, standing alongside Netanyahu as he revealed details of the plan already emphatically rejected by the Palestinians

By Andi Annisa Nur Dzakiyyah

President Trump on some days ago released his long-awaited Middle East peace plan which he has also referred to as the “deal of the century”. Trump planned to  give what Israel has long sought, including allowing for immediate expansion of territory, In his speech Trump said, “My vision presents a win-win opportunity for both sides, a realistic two state solution that resolves the risk of Palestinian statehood to Israel’s security,” , Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel, warmly welcomed Trump’s plan.

Even though Trump planned to give a $50 billion US investment in Palestine and vowed that he would create more than 1 million jobs over the next 10 years, Palestinians rejected it. They called it as a ‘bribe’ which weakens their struggle for realizing an independent Palestine as a sovereign state.

This surely would be a profitable plan for Israel, but Palestine would not.  That was why Palestinians took to the streets as part of a “day of rage”. In line with that, the Islamic organizations from other countries did it as well. In Indonesia, Koalisi Indonesia Bela Baitul Maqdis (KIBBM) with 20 organizations focused on Palestinian issues held peaceful demonstrations in front of the American embassy on February 14, 2020.

Palestinians’ problems is our problems even their sorrows are ours. The Deal of Century surely will give Israel legitimacy to annex the territory of Palestine more broadly.

Indeed, the solution to solve Palestine’s sorrow is not by agreeing to divide territory in the form of a peace agreement. That is not solution because the territories of Palestine belong to Palestinians. If we trace the history, Palestine is a region which was liberated since the leadership of Khalifah Umar Bin Khattab and moslems have been staying in Palestine for centuries. How about Zionists? They don’t have region at all.  Even when Zionists wanted to buy the region of Palestine, Sultan Hamid II rejected it and he said “I will not sell a single inch of the country, because it is not mine, it belongs to all the Muslims. They paid for this empire with their blood. And we will redeem it with our blood. Let the Zionists keep their millions.”

The statement of Sultan Hamid II showed the firmness of a moslem. We should remember the tragedy in 1917, the British government approved the establishment of the Israeli state on Palestinian land through the Balfour declaration. this agreement became the forerunner of the founding of Israel. It showed that Israel was originally the region of Palestine. The Zionists actually did not have rights to the territories of Palestine. Unfortunately, they were successful to annex the territory of Palestine by doing devious strategy. What was happened in the past should be reminder that making deal the enemy will harm Palestine.

Therefore, what was annexed by the Zionists should be returned to moslems. This of course will not be realized when the presidents of moslem countries only criticize, ignore, and make cooperation agreements, dialogues, or even resolutions with the enemy. In addition, the solution is not by calling for an international conference in which all colonial countries and criminals will gather against the Palestine. Then, who will we rely on? United Nations? The UN Security Council, which becomes the agent of the peace mission, has not been successful to actualize peace for Palestine. In doing this, Palestinian citizen will successfully defend and reclaim their rights and territories when there is a single leader throughout the world named “caliph” who will attack the enemy.

Rasulullah SAW said, “Indeed the Imam (the Leader/Sultan) is a shield. You fight behind him, and you protect yourself with him.” (Muslim).

Based on the hadith above, as moslems, we need the existence of caliphate who will unify all moslem countries in one shade and mobilize the armies to do jihad and against the enemy. This is the only one solutions that can solve all of the problems of moslems not only in Palestine, but also in Uyghur, Myanmar, Syria, and others. The caliph of moslems is the only one leader who will not bow down in front of the enemy as what Sultan Hamid II and Caliph Umar Bin Khattab had done. Moreover, he will lead by implementing all the commands and prohibitions of Allah including the command of jihad against the enemy.

Allah SWT said, ” And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows. And whatever you spend in the cause of Allah will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged.” (Al-Anfal: 60)

ERigAlBW4AEq416

Israel’s occupation forces are currently again bombing the besieged Gaza Strip and the situation is spiralling towards larger conflict as desperate Benyamin Netanyahu seeks to win the Israeli public on his side before the March elections.

‘Heavy damage’ in southern Khan Younis has been reported from the ongoing attacks, which have sent fireballs and clouds of smoke reaching high up to the sky and al-Jazeera reports that Israel’s occupation forces are moving more armoured vehicles to near Gaza.

The current events began at 05:40 am on Sunday, when Israeli occupation killed and then mutilated the body of a man in an act condemned as a ‘war crime’ by the human rights Adalah Center in Israel.

When he was attacked and killed, with the fate of his companion still unclear, Muhammad al-Na’im was, according to the clearest report, 100 meters on the Gaza side of the border with ethnically cleansed Palestine 1948.

THE SPIRAL OF VIOLENCE

ERh-TvAX0AErg3q

Following the killing of Muhammad al-Na’im and the grotesque display of his body hanging from the bulldozer’s scoop on Sunday morning, the al-Quds Brigades – the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad whose member he was – launched at least eleven rockets to ethnically cleansed Palestine 1948, which caused no injuries.

Israeli occupation attacks that followed the next night did: In Gaza, at least four and up to seven people were wounded in at least 34 attacks hitting Beit Lahiya, Gaza City, Khan Younis and Rafah, with at least one person being critically injured, while in the Syrian capital Damascus Israeli occupation killed two members of al-Quds Brigades, Salim Ahmad Salim(24) and Ziad Ahmad Mansour(23).

The US-government established and funded al-Hurrah news agency claimed briefly that Israel would have targeted and killed Akram al-Ajouri, the leader of Islamic Jihad. On November 12th 2019 Israel killed his son Moath and a bodyguard in an air-strike on his house in Damascus.

Today Islamic Jihad announced that its fighters killed in Damascus would be ‘avenged’. About midday al-Quds Brigades launched twelve rockets to ethnically cleansed Palestine 1948. There are no news of injuries.

Now, at two pm local Palestine time, Israeli occupation is bombing resistance sites in the tiny coastal enclave and Netanyahu’s cabinet is openly talking about a large-scale military attack in Gaza, where half of the population are children.

The goal: To win the March Knesset elections, third within a year, in which Netanyahu’s hard-right coalition is facing another hard-right coalition led by former general Benny Gantz, who himself in his previous elections’ adverts has bragged about the destruction he wrought in Gaza.

PCHR: IOF Abuses the Body of Palestinian in a Humiliating and Degrading Manner

On Sunday, 23 February 2020, Israeli occupation forces (IOF) shot and injured Palestinian civilians whom were trying to rescue and evacuate two persons that were targeted by IOF in eastern Khan Younis, south of the Gaza Strip.

IOF made a 150-meter incursion into the border and evacuated the body of a Palestinian it killed in the area after desecrating his body in a humiliating and cruel manner, trying to lift the body with a wheel loader several times and dropping the body back to the ground, then removing the body to the Israeli side of the border.

According to PCHR investigations, at approximately 05:40 on Sunday, 23 February 2020, IOF fired three artillery shells and live bullets at two persons who were 100 meters from the border fence with Israel in eastern ‘Abassan al-Jadida, eastern Khan Younis.

Minutes later, a group of Palestinian civilians arrived at the area at Jakar St., followed by an ambulance, and tried to recover the dead bodies. IOF reinforced along the border fence and several military vehicles and soldiers deployed on sand berms in the area.

Approximately 1 hour later, 3 civilians took off their upper clothing, remained in their undershirts and approached one of the dead bodies while carrying a stretcher in an attempt to recover the body. They managed to pull out the body and place it on the stretcher and march westward a few meters.

IOF fired lived bullets at them, wounding Mohammed Khaled al-Najjar, 19, in his lower body; forcing the young men to leave the dead body on the stretcher and evacuated al-Najjar into a civilian car that carried him to an ambulance. They later returned to the scene to evacuate the person on the stretcher. Meanwhile, an IOF wheel loader and tank moved into the location and sped in their direction.

The group managed to carry the dead man’s body with the stretcher, but IOF opened fire at them, so he fell to the ground. An Israeli wheel loader arrived at the area and attempted to evacuate the young man’s body. According to eyewitnesses’ statement and video clips taken by Palestinian journalists in the area, the Israeli wheel loader lifted the young man’s body and threw him on the ground several times. When Mo’taz Hasan al-Najjar, 21, attempted to recover his body, IOF opened fired live bullets at him, wounding him in his lower extremities.

The Israeli wheel loader continued abusing the deceased man’s body for 3 minutes in an attempt to lift him in a way that violates the sanctity of death. The wheel loader carried him from his upper cloths as his body hanged in a tormenting manner, and retreated into the Israeli side of the border fence.

It was later discovered that the person killed, and whose body was desecrated by IOF, was Mohammed ‘Ali Hasan al-Na’em, 27, from Khan Younis. Al-Quds Brigades, the Military Wing of Islamic Jihad Movement, declared that the killed man is one of its members. Furthermore, the young men managed to evacuate the other dead body from the area, who was also a member of armed groups from the area.

PCHR condemns IOF’s inhuman treatment against the victim’s corpse, which was extracted in a humiliating and degrading manner. PCHR, also, denounces the use of excessive force against Palestinian civilians, who attempted to recover the body.

PCHR also reiterates its call upon the High Contracting Parties to the 1949 Fourth Geneva Convention to fulfil their obligations under Article 1; i.e., to respect and ensure respect for the Convention in all circumstances and their obligations under Article 146 to prosecute persons alleged to commit grave breaches of the Fourth Geneva Convention.

These grave breaches constitute war crimes under Article 147 of the same Convention and Protocol (I) Additional to the Geneva Conventions regarding the guarantee of Palestinian civilians’ right to protection in the oPt.
