thetruthmovement #Repost from @palestine_news_network with @repostapp --- Former US Special Envoy to the Middle East Martin Indyk said the recent war waged by Israel on the Gaza Strip "may have put a new nail in the coffin of the two state solution" warning of the negative path of relations between the United States and Israel, Israel's Channel 10 reported.

Indyk said the Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip dubbed "Operation Protective Edge" damaged relations between the United States and Israel to a great extent and reinforced tensions between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Barack Obama.

He pointed out that "in spite of the solid foundation in the relations between the two countries, the situation could change following the Israeli operation against the Gaza Strip." Indyk warned of poll results which reveal a decline in the support among young people and democrats for Israel, saying that if the situation continues at this pace, Israel "will find itself in a new situation other than the one it is used to". Channel 10 reported that Indyk expressed pessimism regarding the possibility of a return to the peace process between Israel and Palestine, saying "the Israeli army operation in Gaza has reduced the likelihood of reaching an agreement between the two parties, because it deepened the estrangement between them". Indyk said: "The Israelis, after what they have seen in Gaza, will not allow themselves to repeat the same scenario in the West Bank, and in return, the Palestinians will adhere to their demands that there should be a specific timeline to end the occupation." "The Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas may have recorded for himself a few points during the war on Gaza, especially among Israelis but he suffered losses in popularity on the Palestinian side."

palestine_news_network The Israeli onslaught on Gaza demolished 73 mosques in 51 days, while 205 others were partially destroyed, a government report said.
According to a committee formed by the Palestinian Economic Council for Development and Construction, the damages caused by Israeli aggression on houses of worship, tombs, and charity offices amount to $40.4 million.
The only two churches in Gaza were also hit and partially damaged, while the gates of 10 tombs were destroyed.
The affected mosques represent one-third of Gaza's mosques, the committee said.
Among the destroyed mosques were historical ones, particularly Al-Omari Mosque in Jabalya which dates back to 649 AD. #EndTheBlockade #ICC4ISRAEL #Gaza #WestBank #Apartheid

palestine_news_network Israeli settlers, on Thursday cut down around 30 Palestinian-owned trees in an area to the north of Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron, according to a local media source.
Archive photo - Land Research Center

Spokesperson of the popular committee against settlement activities, Mohammad Ayyad, told WAFA Palestinina News & Info Agency that people from the illegal Israeli settlement of ‘Beit Ein, cut down around 30 olive, peach and vine trees belonging to one Hammad Islibi.

Settlers have been targeting Islibi’s land, according to Mr. Ayyad, and have cut down around 300 trees over the past five years.

Islibi’s family apparently succeeded in obtaining a court ruling whcih allowed them to put up a barbered wire fence between his land and nearby (illegally seized) settlement land, to insure non-recurrence of reprisal actions by settlers.
However, the ruling was never enforced, and Israel continues to allow such violations, while doing nothing to stop them.

palestine_news_network Fishermen say they have brought home a varied catch of sardines, squid, shrimps, crabs and lax to Gaza's markets since Tuesday, with some varieties of fish unavailable for years due to Israeli restrictions.

Muhammad Abu Arab, a local fisherman, told Ma'an that "when these huge amounts of fish are available the demand increases and we sell it for cheaper prices. We can hardly wait to be allowed to fish 9 or 12 miles (from the coast)." "We could not even see these types of fish when we were allowed only three miles out," he added.

Fisherman Faraj Qasem said he now sells shrimp for 35 shekels per kilo, compared to previous prices of up to 70 shekels due to a scarcity in produce. "We carried one thousand kilograms of fish on the boat today," Qasem said, adding that this quantity and variety of fish is simply unavailable 3 miles from the coast.

Secretary-General of the Union of Fishermen Muhammad Basala told Ma'an this week that fishermen will be allowed to sail out as far as nine nautical miles a week from now and 12 miles after a month from now following the terms of the ceasefire agreement.

Prior to the recent agreement, Israeli forces maintained a limit of three nautical miles on all Gaza fishermen, despite earlier Israeli agreements which had settled on a 20-mile limit. The restrictions crippled Gaza's fishing industry and impoverished local fishermen.

Fishermen were routinely shot at by Israeli naval forces if they ventured past the restricted zone.

palestine_news_network Gaza children left orphaned by bloody war
Published yesterday (updated) 29/08/2014 12:44

GAZA CITY (AFP) -- "She will call me Daddy and Mummy," insisted 11-year-old Amir Hamad, cradling his infant sister in his arms after the Gaza war left him and his four siblings orphans.

Fifty days of bloody fighting in and around the war-torn Gaza Strip has cost the lives of nearly 500 children, but it has also turned hundreds more into orphans, who face a future deprived of their parents' love. "I would rather be dead than without my mother and father," Amir told AFP, saying he would never forget that fateful moment on the second day of the war when they were killed. "My parents were drinking their coffee in the evening after breaking the (Ramadan) fast, when a bomb fell onto our home," he said, recalling how an Israeli air strike hit their home in northern Gaza. "I saw them lying on the ground and knew immediately they were dead," said Amir, the oldest of the five children. His sister Lamis, just four-months-old, is the youngest.
Amir's six-year-old brother Nur had laid motionless, his face covered in blood. "Two paramedics took him," Amir recalled, watching Nur who is now sitting safely next to him. "I'll look after my brothers and sisters. But I'm scared, because my parents are no longer here to help me." There are still adult figures in the family -- the grandmother and grandfather.

The grandmother Afaf Hamad, 60, was displaced by fighting that made almost half a million people homeless, but said she would do whatever to look after the five children.
But she has no idea how she will fund their education. "I'll never leave them, I'll raise them as I did my daughter," she said. "But how will we pay for school?" 'Mum, dad are in heaven'

    Bisan Daher, 8, lost both parents and several brothers in an Israeli air raid in northern Gaza. "We were all at home. We don't have anything to hide, no rockets. But they hit our house while we were all inside. "Now mum and dad and my brothers are in heaven," she said, still covered in bandages from wounds sustained in the strike. "I regained consciousness after the strike, with sand and pebbles in my eyes. I really want to see mum and dad again," Bisan said.

    She was trapped for six hours under the rubble before paramedics found her and rushed her to hospital 4h
  •   palestine_news_network Bisan's 28-year-old sister Noha, who is married, has taken her in. "She's still haunted and traumatized by the incident. She doesn't sleep, she cries a lot and keeps calling for mum and dad," Noha told AFP. "We've been told she has to see a psychiatrist, but while the war was going on it was impossible to move freely for fear of aerial and artillery bombardments." Figures released by the UN show that at least 373,000 children in Gaza will need psychological support in the wake of the seven-week war.

    Children also numbered high on the casualties list, making up nearly a quarter of the dead -- of the 2,143 victims, 494 of them were children.

    On the Israeli side, one child was among 70 people killed, 64 of them soldiers. 4h
  •   palestine_news_network Sole orphanage overwhelmed

    There is only one orphanage in the whole of the Gaza Strip and the war has left it overwhelmed.

    Al-Amal orphanage has already taken in between 250 to 300 children made parent-less by the war, its director Ayad al-Masri told AFP.

    That number has shot up from around 120 before the conflict began.

    During the fighting, one of the children living at the orphanage, 10-year-old Ali, was killed by a shelling at a UN school where he was sheltering with extended family.

    The orphanage only has 31 rooms, but Masri promises it will grow. "We will build another building to cater for all the orphans coming in," he said.

    How quickly that construction can be completed will depend on how much building material Israel lets into Gaza, after a years-long ban on such supplies as a result of its eight-year blockade.

    Under a truce deal reached on Tuesday, Israel has pledged to allow in construction materials but will subject any deliveries to thorough searches, on grounds they could be used to make weapons, or build fortifications and attack tunnels. 4h

While at the family home in Nahal Oz near the Gaza border, Netanyahu said, referring to the violence in the area: "It all started with the Disengagement."

    Abbas also said that two PA officials, senior negotiator Saeb Erekat and intelligence chief Majed Faraj, are to meet with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry next week to discuss a future Palestinian state's borders.

    Abbas said that in future negotiations with Israel the Palestinians will not agree to discuss technical details but will demand to define clear borders between the two states. " ... We will not wait 20 more years," he added. "If they don't agree, we have options." (Jack Khoury)

    8:58 P.M. Hamas leader Khaled Meshal says that his organization still has rockets and tunnels at its disposal, and will not hesitate to use them against Israel again if the negotiations for a long-term truce, set to begin within a month, come to naught. "If necessary, if the negotiations fail, we will return to resistance until our goals are achieved," Hamas' political chief said at a news conference Thursday night in Qatar, where he is based.

    Meshal also described the condition of Hamas military leader Mohammed Deif, whom the Israel Air Force tried to assassinate on August 19, as "fine." (Jack Khoury)

    Meanwhile, Netanyahu will convene the political-security cabinet on Thursday evening at the Defense Ministry headquarters in Tel Aviv to discuss the cease-fire, which has held now for two days.

    Netanyahu told a press conference on Wednesday night that Israel had secured a "great military and political" achievement in the Gaza war and that Hamas had been dealt a "heavy blow." Responding to a journalist's question, the prime minister said: "We would be happy to see Abu-Mazen's [Abbas'] forces enter the Gaza Strip."

JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Israel may be painting a victorious picture of the war in Gaza, but 50 days of fighting looks set to cost it dearly on the political, economic and diplomatic fronts.

Under attack by hawks in his cabinet for accepting a ceasefire which ended the violence on Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has seen his popularity plummet as the military operation, which began on July 8, dragged on for seven weeks.
But on Wednesday, Netanyahu presented his defense: Hamas, he said, was hit "very hard" and did not receive anything it had demanded in exchange for halting its fire, namely a port and an airport in Gaza.
Such matters are to be discussed, along with Israel's demand for Gaza militants to disarm, at a new round of talks which will take place in Cairo within the coming month.
But already, Israel has begun staking out its position - that there will be no port, nor an airport and no entry of any building materials that could be used by militants to manufacture rockets or build tunnels or other fortifications.

On the military front, Netanyahu also outlined Israel's achievements -- the destruction of a network of attack tunnels and the elimination of "approximately 1,000 terrorists," among them senior military commanders.

He also listed the performance of the Iron Dome anti-missile system, which shot down 735 rockets heading for populated areas, which the army said equated to a 90 percent success rate.
Throughout the war, 70 people were killed on the Israeli side, 64 of them soldiers. Of the civilians who died, all of them were killed by short-range mortar shells which struck close to the border within a range that Iron Dome cannot intercept.
5h
  •   palestine_news_network No 'strategic' victory "A small military victory but not one that is strategic," said Mark Heller, research fellow at the Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University.

    As far as Hamas is concerned, "its only success was to have managed to survive," he said.

    But on the ground, Hamas has chalked up a number of points.
    During the fighting, 64 Israeli soldiers were killed in what was the army's heaviest losses since the 2006 war with Lebanon's Hezbollah.

    And despite Israel's intensive bombardment which created death and destruction across the Gaza Strip, costing the lives of 2,143 Palestinians, Hamas continued firing rockets up to the last minute before Tuesday's truce went into effect.
    Throughout the seven-week conflict, militants in Gaza fired 4,591 rockets and mortar shells at Israel, of which 3,650 hit Israel and another 735 of which were shot down.
    The bombardment regularly set air raid sirens wailing across southern and central Israel, sending millions scrambling for cover in cities as far away as Tel Aviv and on several occasions in Jerusalem.

    And the intensity of the fire also turned the communities near the Gaza border into ghost towns, with thousands fleeing with their families to seek shelter in other parts of the country.
    The fire prompted major US and European airlines to suspend flights to Tel Aviv's international airport for two days after a rocket landed close to one of its main runways, in a development hailed by Hamas as a "victory." But none of this has translated into political gains, said Eyal Zisser of the Israeli Moshe Dayan Institute. "Politically, Hamas has not achieved anything and there is very little chance it will get what it wants in terms of the construction of a port or an airport in Gaza," he told AFP. "The damage in Gaza is such that Hamas will find it very difficult to resume the fighting, even if its demands are rejected. 4h
  •   palestine_news_network Costly war

    The financial cost of the operation in the third and longest Gaza war in six years is estimated at around three to four billion dollars, experts say.

    Israel's defense ministry has demanded a grant for a similar sum to restock on ammunition, including for its Iron Dome defense system.

    If it gives into the financial demands of a powerful military lobby, the government could be forced to cut budgets elsewhere and increase taxes, bringing socio-economic pressure on itself.

    On the diplomatic front, Israel's offensive has put already tested relations with key ally the United States under severe strain.

    Harsh criticism from Israeli officials of top US diplomat John Kerry's attempts to broker a truce prompted a strong rebuke from the Americans, as the State Department condemned the killing of innocent civilians in incidents the UN attributed to Israeli bombardments.

    Meanwhile, some 50 percent of Israelis said they were satisfied with the way Netanyahu carried out the operation, a drop from 77 percent just three weeks earlier, a poll showed. 4h
