Hamas armed wing: 5 Israeli soldiers killed in new cross-border attack


GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas' armed wing said Saturday that a group of its operatives infiltrated Israeli territory for the second time in a day and killed five Israeli soldiers.

The al-Qassam Brigades said the fighters tunneled under the Gaza border into Israeli territory near the Sufa crossing east of Rafah. Then they shot five soldiers dead, the group said.

It said three were killed by direct gunshots to the head, while the others suffered bullet wounds in other areas of their bodies.

Only hours earlier, the Israeli army announced the deaths of two soldiers by militants who had breached the Gaza border.

An army statement said those two, Sergeant Adar Bersano, 20, from Neharyia, and Major Amotz Greenberg, 45, from Hod Hasharon, were killed during a clash with a number of militants who infiltrated Israel through a tunnel from Gaza.

The fighters, also affiliated with Hamas' military wing, infiltrated the southern Israeli region of Eshkol near Ein HaShlosha through a tunnel and attacked an Israeli army patrol. more

Egyptian press repeat Israeli lies as Sisi keeps Gaza border closed


Nearly two hundred Palestinians have been killed in Gaza in the past week, and while the death toll continues to rise, there remains no escape from the ongoing siege as Egypt maintains closure of Rafah crossing, the sole entry and exit point for the vast majority of Gaza’s 1.8 million residents.

United Nations secretary general Ban Ki-moon urged Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi to open the border on Wednesday last week, after three days of intensive Israeli bombing had killed approximately ninety Palestinians.

On Thursday, Egyptian authorities opened the Rafah crossing only for Egyptians and Palestinians suffering critical injuries. Only eleven Palestinians passed the crossing before Egyptian authorities closed it again on Friday morning, according to the Ma’an News Agency. Egyptian authorities did not provide any reason for the closure.

Meanwhile, charity and medical workers report that they have been prevented from entering Gaza via Rafah crossing to deliver medical and food aid. more

Mishaal: No calm without ending Gaza siege


GAZA, (PIC)-- Head of Hamas’s political bureau Khaled Mishaal affirmed that his movement will not agree to a cease-fire that does not result in the lifting of the siege on Gaza.

“Any initiative that doesn’t stop the aggression and end the siege on Gaza would not be acceptable to our people. That’s why the Egyptian initiative was rejected,” he clarified.

“It is high time that the international community addresses the root of the problem in Gaza, lifts the unjust siege on the people and puts an end to Israeli violations in Jerusalem and the West Bank such as the arrests, home demolitions and the closing of civil society institutions because the root of the problem is the occupation, the settlements and the Judaization of Palestinian land,” he said in an exclusive interview with Al-Monitor. more

Israeli police ransack Tariq Abu Khdeir family home, arrest relatives in revenge raid


Just hours after 15-year-old Tariq Abu Khdeir left for Ben Gurion International Airport to return home to Tampa, Florida, Israeli police raided and ransacked the home of his family in the Shufat neighborhood of occupied East Jerusalem. The police arrested Abu Khdeir’s uncle and cousins without charges.

The Israeli motive appears to have been revenge for the family’s role in publicizing CCTV footage of Abu Khdeir’s brutal beating at the hands of Israeli police, and their public campaign to secure his return to the US.



Abu Khdeir had been jailed without charges after being beaten inches from his life during rioting in Shufat in protest of the murder of his cousin, Muhammad Abu Khdeir, by Israeli nationalists seeking vengeance. Footage of the beating was aired on news outlets around the world: more: more

Egyptian convoy heads for Gaza as solidarity protests grow


A few hundred Egyptians took part in a solidarity rally with the Palestinian Gaza Strip in downtown Cairo on Sunday, chanting against Israeli attacks that have killed over 165 Gazans, mostly civilians, during the past week.

The protest call was launched by a solidarity movement, the Popular Campaign to Support the Palestinian Intifada, which is putting together a convoy of medical supplies needed in Gaza.

Protesters gathered at Egypt's Journalists Syndicate headquarters in downtown Cairo to have Iftar, the meal that breaks Muslims' fast in the holy month of Ramadan, and then held the demonstration, marching in a rally throughout the area.

Ahmad Saqr, 23, an artist, said Palestinians are facing all kinds of human rights violations. "I support Hamas since it represents resistance against Israel," he told Ahram Online. Saqr is worried the convoy won't be allowed in Gaza. Hamas' Al-Qassam Brigades fired hundreds of rockets into Israel after the launch of Israel's Operation Protective Edge on Tuesday. more

Take action: Stop Israeli Terror - Palestinians say take to streets against Gaza attack


From Socialist Worker - Israel’s murderous assault on Gaza has created outrage round the world. More than 190 people have been killed in over 1,300 air strikes. Another 1,000 have been injured as Socialist Worker went to press.

Palestinian journalist Lara Aburamadan, spoke from Gaza. She told Socialist Worker, “We here in Gaza have the courage to resist.

“I hope that all of you will have the courage to go onto the streets to protest in support of us. We worried we might be forgotten. Thank you for your support.”

Dr Mona Qasim El-Farra works in a hospital in Gaza. She said, “I am appalled that Israeli propaganda claims they don’t attack civilians.

“At least 70 percent of those killed are civilians. The injured are mostly civilians. Civilians are suffering.

"I care for all children. I am a human being. I am a physician. But there is a huge difference between Israeli children running to their shelters and Palestinian children being bombed and killed with no defence.”

The Egyptian government has proposed a ceasefire. But Hamas, which controls Gaza, has said there is no point without a deal.

Lara said, “It’s sad and calm here—like the city of ghosts. No one is out. There are no cars on the streets, only ambulances.

“Israeli warplanes are flying over the city all the time and they are bombing every couple of minutes. I’m staying at home sitting on the internet to cover the situation. more
