GAZA CITY: ' Israel "NEVER REGRETS VIOLATING INTERNATIONAL LAW" Political Analyst States '

#AceWorldNews – GAZA CITY – July 27 – Israel never regrets violating the international law and is going ahead with its barbaric war on the Gaza Strip as the Tel Aviv regime enjoys all-out support of the United States, a political analyst tells Press TV.

Mark Weber, director of the Institute for Historical Review, said in a Saturday interview with Press TV that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “has shown that he is willing to utterly defy world opinion in carrying out this extremely one-sided barbaric attack on Gaza.”

“This outrage has angered public opinion around the world,” he stated, adding that Israel has for long proved that it will act “in defiance…even of United States law because they can count on the continuing support of US Congress and the US government, which is a reflection of course of the tremendous power of the pro-Israel lobby here in the United States.”

The analyst predicted that the Gaza carnage will continue mainly due to the US support for Israel.

“This shows really…the moral bankruptcy of US policy worldwide and in particular of course in the Middle East.”

Death toll from Israeli attacks on Gaza has reached 1,050 since Tel Aviv began its onslaught on July 8.

Thousands of Palestinians have also been injured in the attacks.

‘ Benjamin Netanyahu to CNN Israel Will Take ” Whatever Action is Necessary ” to Halt Hamas Cross-Border Rocket Attacks From Gaza ‘

#AceWorldNewsISRAEL (Tel Aviv) – July 20 – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that Israel will take“whatever action is necessary” to halt Hamas cross-border rocket attacks from Gaza and restore calm but insisted his forces were doing their utmost to avoid civilian casualties there.

“We try to target military targets and unfortunately there are civilian casualties which we regret and we don’t seek,” Netanyahu told CNN shortly after an Israeli attack on a Gaza neighbourhood killed at least 87 Palestinians.

He accused Hamas of deliberately targeting Israeli civilians and of using Gaza residents as “human shields.” Asked how long it would take Israel to complete an operation it says is intended to destroy Hamas weapons tunnels, Netanyahu said it was being done “fairly quickly,” but gave no time frame.

INCURSION

JULY 18 2014

#AceWorldNews – 17 July – A ground operation in the Gaza Strip has been launched by Tel Aviv following more than a week of Hamas shelling the country and the IDF responding with air strikes. Over 200 Palestinians and one Israeli have died in the violence.

Gaza City Lighting up the Sky

19:05 GMT:

Palestinian radicals in Gaza have fired at Tel Aviv for a second time today. The Iron Dome system shot down two rockets over the city this evening, reported the press office of the Israeli army.

19:02 GMT:

Egypt has renewed its call for a truce in the region. Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri, speaking at a news conference in Cairo said: “We hope that all sides will support this initiative so that bloodshed stops and this escalation does not get worse. We call on all sides to accept this proposal. We are working to find a framework so that both sides agree,” reported Reuters.

 

18:23 GMT:

Israeli tank shells have killed three in Gaza, including children, medics told AFP.

 

15:26 GMT:

CNN has pulled correspondent Diana Magnay out of her post covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict after the reporter tweeted that Israelis cheering bombs hitting Gaza, and who had allegedly threatened her, were “scum.”

 

A CNN spokeswoman said Magnay has been reassigned to Moscow.

 

15:15 GMT:

 

Shortly after the air raid siren report, the IDF tweeted that its Iron Dome air defense system had intercepted rockets over Tel Aviv.

 

15:05 GMT:

The United Nations said it is going to ramp up emergency aid to Gaza, where Israel’s ground invasion intensified water shortages and fears of sewage contamination and water-borne diseases, Reuters reports.

“We are still very concerned about the water supply in Gaza, about half of the population are without water supply at this time,” UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) spokeswoman, Amanda Pitt, told a news briefing in Geneva.

On Tuesday, UN aid agencies and the International Committee of the Red Cross warned that Gaza’s water system has been degraded over the course of years, with potential infrastructure damage incurred during the assault leaving the entire coastal strip vulnerable to a water crisis within a matter of days.

 14:26 GMT:

IDF attempt to show they abide by the Geneva Convention by providing medical treatment to a wounded combatant.

According to the first Geneva Convention – ‘for the Amelioration of the Wounded and Sick in Armed Forces and Field’ – if a member of the armed forces is wounded or sick, and therefore is unable to actively engage in combat, he is no longer part of the fighting force and becomes a vulnerable person in need of protection and care.

 

14:17 GMT:

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel of state terrorism and genocide, saying the two states would not find rapprochement on his watch.

“Israel threatens world peace. Israel threatens peace in the Middle East. Therefore, I personally, can never contemplate anything positive with Israel as long as I remain on duty,” Erdogan told reporters after Muslim Friday prayers:

“Israel is at the moment waging terrorism; Israel at the moment is carrying out genocide,” he said.

Turkey and Israel had been working toward improving ties after Israeli commandos killed eight Turks and one Turkish American during a raid on a pro-Palestinian aid ship in 2010. Turkey expelled the Israeli ambassador and recalled its own top envoy following the incident. Israel ultimately apologized to Turkey for the deaths and agreed to pay compensation under a US-brokered arrangement in 2013. In March, Turkish officials said the two sides had come close to reaching a compensation deal which would fully restore ties.

 

13:47 GMT:

 

Cihan News Agency has posted video footage showing the pro-Palestinian rallies outside of the diplomatic missions in Istanbul and Ankara on Thursday. The first video, shot in Istanbul, shows police deploy a water cannon and pepper spray to disperse protesters after some turned violent, smashing windows and attempting to scale the compound gates.

 

The video from Ankara depicts a heated by far more peaceful scene, though there are unconfirmed reports that the compound in the Tukrish capital was attacked on Friday.

Turkey has since bolstered security at the facilities, though Tzachi Moshe, a spokesman for Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, said Israel “sharply protested the flagrant violation of diplomatic rules.”

 

 

13:27 GMT:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said since there is no way to deal with the tunnels only from the air, “our soldiers are doing it now from the ground,” the Jerusalem Post cites him as saying during the opening session of an emergency cabinet meeting in Tel Aviv.

Netanyahu said the ongoing military operation did not offer a100 percent shot at success, though everything would be done to get “maximum results.”

The Israeli PM said the army had been readied for the possibility of a significant expansion of the ground operation, blaming Hamas for not upholding its end of an Egyptian-brokered cease-fire proposal on Tuesday.

“We decided to launch the action after we tried all the other ways, and with an understanding that without this operation the price we will have to pay later would be much higher,” he said.

He added that intense diplomatic efforts had given Israel the political capital necessary to use force against the “terrorist organization,” and that the supreme consideration at this point was to “restore security to civilians” and return the country to a state of calm.

“There is not a more moral army than the IDF, and we do not want to harm even one innocent civilian. Not even one. We are operating only against terror targets.”

He blamed Hamas for civilian casualties on both sides, claiming they were attacking Israeli towns and cities from behind human shields.

He said media distortions of the conflict were virtually “unpreventable.”

“But unlike in the past, this time there are many in the international community who understand that Hamas alone bears responsibility for the victims,” he said. “This is something very important for Israel.”

13:12 GMT:

 

 

13:06 GMT:

The Israeli Defense Force is live tweeting images of so-called ‘terror tunnels’, the ostensible reason the ground operation was launched into Gaza.

 

 

13:03 GMT:

Israel has decided to evacuate the families of diplomatic staff in Turkey in Ankara after protests turned violent outside diplomatic missions in both the capital Ankara and Istanbul. The compounds were reportedly pelted with rocks as some demonstrators chanted, “Murderer Israel, get out of Palestine,” Hurriyet Daily News reported. Several Turkish diplomats attended the pro-Palestinian rallies, including a deputy from the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP).

“The occupying Israel has made a bloodbath of Palestine by bombing them for the past 15 days,” Murat Yıldırım said from Ankara.

At least 23 Palestinians – including three children – have been killed since Israel launched the ground offensive. Around 264 Palestinians have been killed since Israel first started bombarding Gaza on July 7. The Israeli death toll currently stands at two: one soldier and one civilian.

 

12:40 GMT:

10:01 GMT:

 

09:02 GMT:

Barely a day into the operation, Netanyahu is discussing plans for a significant widening of the ground offensive.

Shortly before convening a meeting of cabinet ministers, he told reporters that “My instructions … are to prepare for the possibility of significantly widening the ground operation, and the military is preparing accordingly,” Reuters reported.

08:42 GMT:

Those affected by the conflict in Gaza are receiving financial help from multiple sources abroad. The latest tranche comes from Denmark, which has donated $2 million toward alleviating civilian suffering there.

08:07 GMT:

 

 

07:17 GMT:

Reuters now reports 23 Palestinians dead since the start of the ground operation.

 

05:54 GMT:

 

 

05:43 GMT:

 

 

05:21 GMT:

An Israeli military spokesman said in an interview to a radio station regarding the recent death of an Israeli soldier during the ground offensive on Gaza: “We are checking the circumstances” of soldier’s death.

This was the first Israeli casualty since the start of the operation.

 05:12 GMT:

According to Quentin Sommerville of the BBC, the number of dead since the start of the ground offensive, together with the number killed already in the preceding phase, puts the death toll at more than 250 people, with around 1980 wounded, as the conflict enters its 11th day.

‘German Government Express Concern Over Israeli Settlements Plan’

#AceNewsServices – BERLIN – June 06 – The German government is extremely concerned about Israeli plans to build more settlements in the occupied territories, Reuters said.

The Israeli move is being seen as a response to the inauguration of a Palestinian unity government backed by Hamas Islamists.

The German government is “very worried… because this step poses the threat of making efforts to continue peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians even harder,” said German government spokeswoman Christiane Wirtz, calling on both sides to avoid provocative steps.

Berlin urged the Israeli government to refrain from inviting bids to construct homes.

(PressTV) – This comes as UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has called on Israel to abide by international law and freeze settlement activities. Ban expressed deep concern over Israel’s plans to build more than three thousand settler units in the West Bank and East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

On Thursday, Tel Aviv ordered the construction of 3,300 more settler units in the occupied West Bank and East al-Quds.

According to Israel’s Housing Minister Uri Ariel, the decision is a response to the formation of a new Palestinian unity government.

Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) says it will appeal to the UN Security Council against Israel’s expansionism.

More than half a million Israelis live in over 120 illegal settlements built since Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds in 1967.

The developments come as Israel is currently faces a widening boycott campaign by some European businesses over its illegal settlement activities on the occupied Palestinian land.

Two of Europe’s biggest financial institutions have boycotted transactions with Israeli companies involved in the illegal settlement construction.

The European Union has also blocked all grants and funding to any Israeli entity based in the illegal settlements.

Meanwhile, the office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the defence ministry refused to confirm or deny the report, according to AFP.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said on Saturday that Israel had informed the Palestinians that it would boycott the government. “Israel wants to punish us because we have agreed with Hamas on this government,” he said.

` Anonymous Hacktivist's Attacked Hundreds of Websites of ` Israeli Ministries and Organisations '

#AceWorldNews – ANONYMOUS – April 07 – (PressTV) – Reports that Hacktivists from the Anonymous group have attacked hundreds of websites belonging to Israeli ministries and organizations.

The on-line attacks took place on Monday, with Israeli media saying that several websites, including those of the Ministry of Education and the Airports Authority, had been hacked.

Anonymous had said in a statement on Sunday, “On April 7, 2014, we call upon our brothers and sisters to hack, deface, hijack, database leak, admin takeover, and DNS terminate the Israeli Cyberspace by any means necessary.”

Addressing the Israeli regime, Anonymous also said that “further assault on the people of Gaza, who have been flooded by your sewage, terrorized by your military apparatus, and left to die at the border while waiting for medical attention will NOT be tolerated any more.”

The group, that was referring to the Israeli siege on Gaza in place since 2007, pledged not to stop until “Palestine is free.”

The group’s first cyber attack against Israel was launched during Tel Aviv’s assault on Gaza in November 2012. Some 700 websites, including Foreign Ministry and the Israeli president’s official websites, were hacked at the time and the personal data of some 5,000 Israeli officials were posted online.

Anonymous also carried out similar attacks on April 7, 2013, when the websites of the Israeli parliament, ministries and other government organizations stopped functioning for some time.

` Israeli – Palestinian talks will be Extended beyond `April 29 ‘ to try to Resolve Release of Palestinian Detainees ‘

#AceWorldNews – TEL AVIV – March 31 – It will be clear within “days” whether the Israeli-Palestinian talks will be extended beyond April 29 deadline, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday.

“It could be a matter of just days,” Netanyahu told ministers from his Likud Party.

“Either the matter will be resolved or it will blow up. And in any case, there won’t be any deal without Israel knowing clearly what it will get in exchange,” he said as diplomatic efforts continue to prevent a collapse of the negotiations over a dispute about Palestinian prisoners.

Earlier, Tel Aviv informed the Palestinians that they would not free the detainees.

The Palestinians said they will not consider extending the talks without the prisoners being freed.

“Middle East `Israel Advance’s Plans for `Construction of Settler Units in Occupied East Al-Quds Jerusalem’ after Permit’s Granted”

#AceNewsServices says `Israel Advances Plans for the Construction’ of 558 settler units in the `Occupied East al-Quds (Jerusalem)’ says a statement.

The city council said Tel Aviv had pushed forward with plans to build the homes in settlement neighbourhoods.

Mideast-Israel-Palest_Horo-28In a statement listing “building permits that were approved” during a session of the local planning committee, it said permits had been granted to private contractors to build 386 units in Har Homa, 136 units in Neve Yaakov and 36 units in Pisgat Zeev.

Israeli forces also razed down an entire Palestinian village in the Jordan Valley region of the occupied West Bank on Thursday.

Israel occupied the Palestinian territories of East al-Quds, the Gaza Strip, and the West Bank during the Six-Day War of 1967. Israel conducted a self-proclaimed withdrawal from Gaza in 2005, but Israeli forces have carried out regular deadly forays into the sliver ever since the so-called pull-out.

The United Nations regards the Israeli settlements as illegal because the territories were captured in the war and are hence subject to the Geneva Conventions, which forbid construction on occupied lands.
