Palestinians fight for their lives and their stolen lands

PostAuthor: Anthea » Sun Oct 08, 2023 1:50 am

Attacks on Palestine 230 death 1700 injured

The spokesperson for the Ministry of Interior and National Security reports that two residential houses in Rafah were bombed

The number of Palestinian martyrs following the Israeli aggression on Gaza has risen to 232, with 1697 wounded, according to a statement by the Gazan Ministry of Health.

The Ministry reported that its medical teams are tirelessly working in operating rooms and intensive care units to save dozens of critical conditions.

The statement also confirmed the activation of the emergency plan by the Ministry of Health.

Iyad al-Buzm, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Interior and National Security, announced that Israeli occupation aircraft had destroyed two residential houses in the city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, resulting in several casualties.

He added that civil defense teams, medical services, and the police are making great efforts to evacuate a number of martyrs and injured individuals, including women and children, of the Abo Quta family house after Israeli aircraft destroyed it over the heads of its inhabitants in the city of Rafah.

Al-Buzm emphasized that the claims made by the occupation army that the towers and residential buildings destroyed by its warplanes are used for military purposes are baseless and untrue. He added that these claims are intended to justify its crimes against Palestinian civilians.

Al-Mayadeen correspondent to Gaza reported that Israeli occupation aircraft also bombed a house in the Tel al-Hawa neighborhood in the southern Gaza Strip.

After the Israeli occupation forces targeted the 14-story Palestine tower in Gaza which includes offices of various media institutions, al-Qassam Brigades spokesperson Abo Obeida warned that the resistance's retaliation will be "earth-shattering".

"The occupation's airstrike on the Palestine Tower in central Gaza will force 'Tel Aviv' to stand on one leg as it awaits our retaliation."

In the same context, Al Mayadeen's correspondent to Gaza said that the targeting of the Palestine Tower could constitute a turning point in the war: such that the Resistance will not allow the targeting of civilians to go unanswered.

Shortly afterward, it was reported that Hamas fired 150 rockets toward "Tel Aviv".

Earlier today, Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that "Israel is at war" after Hamas fighters initiated a large-scale surprise attack on settlements in the Gaza envelope.

In a filmed statement published several hours after the Palestinian Resistance launched Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, Netanyahu confirmed that he convened the heads of the Israeli security establishment and directed that Palestinian Resistance fighters who crossed into Gaza envelope settlements be neutralized.

Re: Escalation is a result of 75 years of Israeli violations

PostAuthor: Anthea » Sun Oct 08, 2023 11:04 am

Amid the horrors one tiny voice tell the truth:

75 years of Israeli violations

Cuba expressed its deep concern about the escalation of violence in occupied Palestine, stressing in a statement issued by its Foreign Ministry that this escalation comes as a result of 75 years of permanent violation of the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people and of "Israel's" aggressive and expansionist policy

The statement called for "a comprehensive, just, and lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, based on the establishment of two states," allowing the Palestinian people to exercise their right to self-determination and establish an "independent, sovereign state within the pre-1967 borders, with the Eastern part of al-Quds as its capital."

The Cuban Foreign Ministry underlined that the United Nations Security Council must fulfill its obligations and put an end to the impunity of "Israel", the occupier, through the historical complicity of the United States that repeatedly obstructs the work of the UNSC, undermining peace, security, and stability in the Middle East region.

Elsewhere, Cuba also stressed the need to "achieve peace" and search for a solution through negotiations that prevent further escalation of the conflict, which has already claimed the lives of tens of thousands of people so far.
Al-Aqsa Flood

The Israeli occupation woke up at dawn Saturday to a sudden and widespread attack launched by the Palestinian Resistance into Gaza Envelope settlements, successfully detaining Israeli occupation forces and illegal settlers while causing hundreds of fatalities among them, under an Operation dubbed Al-Aqsa Flood, in a huge intelligence flop.

Hours after the start of the operation, Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed in a recorded statement that "Israel" is "at war", adding that Hamas initiated "a surprise attack."

Israeli media suggested that more than 300 Israelis had been killed and at least 1,100 wounded so far, while Channel 13 indicated that the number of Israeli deaths is "only the tip of the iceberg compared to the real number."

On its part, the Israeli occupation launched a new aggression against the Gaza Strip, conducting extensive air raids against residential buildings in the Strip that claimed the lives of 256 Palestinians so far, including 20 children.

Al-Qassam fighters engage IOF

Hamas' military wing and other Palestinian factions confirm that their fighters continue to engage occupation forces in several Gaza Envelope settlements

Fighters of the Brigades are engaged in "fierce confrontation in several sites" including "Ofakim", "Sderot", "Yad Mordechai", "Kafar Azza", "Be'eri", "Yated", and "Kissufim".

The statement revealed that its artillery detachments are supporting the fighters with cover fire, as they utilize artillery rockets to this end.

In another statement, Hamas' military wing said it was able to reinforce and provide supplies to the fighters on several fronts overnight and in the early morning, which encompassed the "Sufa" military site and kibbutz, as well as "Yated" and "Holit".

The military correspondent of Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, said that the Resistance group's fighters are still engaged with the IOF on several fronts in the Gaza envelope settlements.

This comes as the National Resistance Brigades, the military wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), announced that its fighters are also confronting occupation forces in "Kfar Azza", "Be'eri", and "Kissufim", marking the Resistance unity and determination in strife for liberation.

    The sites in which the Palestinian Resistance is engaged with the IOF are part of the Gaza Envelope settlements, which were occupied in 1948. The areas were home to Palestinians who were forced out of them and transported to "prison camps", which later became to be known as the Gaza Strip
The Palestinian Resistance's advance onto these positions marks a first in the history of the Palestinian struggle, catching occupation forces off-guard and achieving unprecedented victories.

Al-Qassam utilizes homegrown weapons

The Brigades also released footage of several homegrown kamikaze drones being launched toward Israeli military positions.

Moreover, the Brigades unveiled a homegrown multiple-rocket launcher (MLR) that houses short-range 114 mm artillery rockets, dubbed "Rajoum".

The MRL was put into use during the first wave of shelling and strikes, which provided the needed cover for Resistance fighters early on Saturday morning.

Re: Britain gave Arab land to Jews without consent of the Ar

More than a century on:
    The Balfour Declaration explained
The Balfour Declaration, which resulted in a significant upheaval in the lives of Palestinians, was issued on November 2, 1917.

The declaration turned the Zionist aim of establishing a Jewish state in Palestine into a reality when Britain publicly pledged to establish “a national home for the Jewish people” there.

The pledge is generally viewed as one of the main catalysts of the Nakba – the ethnic cleansing of Palestine in 1948 – and the conflict that ensued with the Zionist state of Israel.

It is regarded as one of the most controversial and contested documents in the modern history of the Arab world and has puzzled historians for decades.

What is the Balfour Declaration?

The Balfour Declaration (“Balfour’s promise” in Arabic) was a public pledge by Britain in 1917 declaring its aim to establish “a national home for the Jewish people” in Palestine.

The statement came in the form of a letter from Britain’s then-foreign secretary, Arthur Balfour, addressed to Lionel Walter Rothschild, a figurehead of the British Jewish community.

It was made during World War I (1914-1918) and was included in the terms of the British Mandate for Palestine after the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire.

The so-called mandate system, set up by the Allied powers, was a thinly veiled form of colonialism and occupation.

The system transferred rule from the territories that were previously controlled by the powers defeated in the war – Germany, Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Empire and Bulgaria – to the victors.

The declared aim of the mandate system was to allow the winners of the war to administer the newly emerging states until they could become independent.

The case of Palestine, however, was unique. Unlike the rest of the post-war mandates, the main goal of the British Mandate there was to create the conditions for the establishment of a Jewish “national home” – where Jews constituted less than 10 percent of the population at the time.

Upon the start of the mandate, the British began to facilitate the immigration of European Jews to Palestine. Between 1922 and 1935, the Jewish population rose from nine percent to nearly 27 percent of the total population.

Though the Balfour Declaration included the caveat that “nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine”, the British mandate was set up in a way to equip Jews with the tools to establish self-rule, at the expense of the Palestinian Arabs.

Why was it controversial?

The document was controversial for several reasons.

Firstly, it was, in the words of the late Palestinian-American academic Edward Said, “made by a European power … about a non-European territory … in a flat disregard of both the presence and wishes of the native majority resident in that territory”.

In essence, the Balfour Declaration promised Jews a land where the natives made up more than 90 percent of the population

Secondly, the declaration was one of three conflicting wartime promises made by the British.

When it was released, Britain had already promised the Arabs independence from the Ottoman Empire in the 1915 Hussein-McMahon correspondence.

The British also promised the French, in a separate treaty known as 1916 Sykes-Picot agreement, that the majority of Palestine would be under international administration, while the rest of the region would be split between the two colonial powers after the war.

The declaration, however, meant that Palestine would come under British occupation and that the Palestinian Arabs who lived there would not gain independence.

Finally, the declaration introduced a notion that was reportedly unprecedented in international law – that of a “national home”.

The use of the vague term “national home” for the Jewish people, as opposed to “state”, left the meaning open to interpretation.

Earlier drafts of the document used the phrase “the reconstitution of Palestine as a Jewish State”, but that was later changed.

In a meeting with Zionist leader Chaim Weizmann in 1922, however, Arthur Balfour and then-Prime Minister David Lloyd George reportedly said the Balfour Declaration “always meant an eventual Jewish state”.

Why was it issued?

The question of why the Balfour Declaration was issued has been a subject of debate for decades, with historians using different sources to suggest various explanations.

While some argue that many in the British government at the time were Zionists themselves, others say the declaration was issued out of an anti-Semitic reasoning, that giving Palestine to the Jews would be a solution to the “Jewish problem”.

In mainstream academia, however, there are a set of reasons over which there is a general consensus:

    Control over Palestine was a strategic imperial interest to keep Egypt and the Suez Canal within Britain’s sphere of influence

    Britain had to side with the Zionists to rally support among Jews in the United States and Russia, hoping they could encourage their governments to stay in the war until victory

    Intense Zionist lobbying and strong connections between the Zionist community in Britain and the British government; some of the officials in the government were Zionists themselves

    Jews were being persecuted in Europe and the British government was sympathetic to their suffering
How was it received by Palestinians and Arabs?

In 1919, then-US President Woodrow Wilson appointed a commission to look into public opinion on the mandatory system in Syria and Palestine.

The investigation was known as the King-Crane commission. It found that the majority of Palestinians expressed a strong opposition to Zionism, leading the conductors of the commission to advise a modification of the mandate’s goal.

The late Awni Abd al-Hadi, a Palestinian political figure and nationalist, condemned the Balfour Declaration in his memoirs, saying it was made by an English foreigner who had no claim to Palestine, to a foreign Jew who had no right to it.

In 1920, the Third Palestinian Congress in Haifa decried the British government’s plans to support the Zionist project and rejected the declaration as a violation of international law and of the rights of the indigenous population.

However, the other important source for insight into Palestinian opinion on the declaration – the press – was closed down by the Ottomans at the start of the war in 1914 and only began to reappear in 1919, but under British military censorship.

In November 1919, when the al-Istiqlal al-Arabi (Arab independence) newspaper, based in Damascus, was reopened, one article said in response to a public speech by Herbert Samuel, a Jewish cabinet minister, in London on the second anniversary of the Balfour Declaration: “Our country is Arab, Palestine is Arab, and Palestine must remain Arab.”

Even prior to the Balfour Declaration and the British Mandate, pan-Arab newspapers warned against the motives of the Zionist movement and its potential outcomes in displacing Palestinians from their land.

Khalil Sakakini, a Jerusalemite writer and teacher, described Palestine in the immediate aftermath of the war as follows: “A nation which has long been in the depths of sleep only awakes if it is rudely shaken by events, and only arises little by little … This was the situation of Palestine, which for many centuries has been in the deepest sleep, until it was shaken by the great war, shocked by the Zionist movement, and violated by the illegal policy [of the British], and it awoke, little by little.”

Increased Jewish immigration under the mandate created tensions and violence between the Palestinian Arabs and the European Jews. One of the first popular responses to British actions was the Nebi Musa revolt in 1920 that led to the killing of four Palestinian Arabs and five immigrant Jews.

Who else was behind it?

While Britain is generally held responsible for the Balfour Declaration, it is important to note that the statement would not have been made without prior approval from the other Allied powers during World War I.

In a War Cabinet meeting in September 1917, British ministers decided that “the views of President Wilson should be obtained before any declaration was made”. Indeed, according to the cabinet’s minutes on October 4, the ministers recalled Arthur Balfour confirming that Wilson was “extremely favourable to the movement”.

France was also involved and announced its support prior to the issuing of the Balfour Declaration.

A May 1917 letter from Jules Cambon, a French diplomat, to Nahum Sokolow, a Polish Zionist, expressed the sympathetic views of the French government towards “Jewish colonisation in Palestine”.

“[I]t would be a deed of justice and of reparation to assist, by the protection of the Allied Powers, in the renaissance of the Jewish nationality in that Land from which the people of Israel were exiled so many centuries ago,” stated the letter, which was seen as a precursor to the Balfour Declaration.

What impact did it have on Palestinians?

The Balfour Declaration is widely seen as the precursor to the 1948 Palestinian Nakba when Zionist armed groups, who were trained by the British, forcibly expelled more than 750,000 Palestinians from their homeland.

Despite some opposition within the War Cabinet predicting that such an outcome was probable, the British government still chose to issue the declaration.

While it is difficult to imply that the developments in Palestine today can be traced back to the Balfour Declaration, there is no doubt that the British Mandate created the conditions for the Jewish minority to gain superiority in Palestine and build a state for themselves at the expense of the Palestinian Arabs.

When the British decided to terminate their mandate in 1947 and transfer the question of Palestine to the United Nations, the Jews already had an army that was formed out of the armed paramilitary groups trained and created to fight side by side with the British in World War II.

More importantly, the British allowed the Jews to establish self-governing institutions, such as the Jewish Agency, to prepare themselves for a state when it came to it, while the Palestinians were forbidden from doing so – paving the way for the 1948 ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

370 dead, 2,200 injured by Israel

According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, the number of casualties resulting from Israeli airstrikes in the Gaza Strip on Sunday has now reached 370, with approximately 2,200 individuals sustaining injuries

"According to the data as of 4:15 p.m. local time [13:15 GMT], 370 citizens were killed and 2,200 were injured in various degrees," the health ministry said in a statement.

Earlier in the day, Israeli media reported that the number of Israeli deaths has risen to 600 and the wounded to 2,000, 350 of whom are in a serious, hopeless condition.

The Israeli media also announced that among those killed is the head of the elite Israeli Multidimensional unit, also known as the Ghost unit, Colonel Roi Levy.

The media also suggested that the death toll is nearing 1,000, pointing out that there are still quite a few settlers missing in addition to an unestimated number of settlers who were transferred to the Gaza Strip.

CNN reported that 44 Israeli occupation soldiers and 30 security officials have been identified among the killed.

Our experiences have shown us that most mainstream news media sites are government controlled and nothing more than propaganda machines, social media is also used for mostly propaganda, however I believe this site to be reliable

If something is in the mainstream news media it is either not true or not important

A 'D' notice means delete it because the general public must not find out about it


About Wafa Agency

Pursuant to the decision adopted by the Palestinian National Council in its extraordinary session, held in Cairo in April 1972, the Palestine Liberation Organization’s (PLO) Executive Committee issued a decision establishing the Palestinian News & Information Agency (WAFA)

On June 5, 1972. WAFA was established as an independent body that was structurally, politically and administratively linked to the PLO Executive Committee with a mandate to confront the dominant Israeli propaganda at the time and serve as an independent platform to report events from the official Palestinian perspective without being subject to any trusteeship (guardianship) or subordination.


Vision and Mission:

The vision and mission of WAFA are established as follows:Vision:WAFA seeks to produce and disseminate news and information on Palestine worldwide as well as to provide readers with insight into events from a Palestinian perspective.WAFA seeks to keep the public opinion worldwide informed about Palestine and provide Palestinians with foreign news.Mission:Harnessing its creativity, know-how and professionalism, WAFA strives to influence the public opinion at the local and international levels, with focus on the religious, geographic and historical importance of Palestine.

Goals, WAFA seeks to achieve the following goals:

    Project the proper image of Palestine in a manner that shows the Palestinian people’s eligibility to exercise its right to freedom, independence and sovereignty.

    Document domestic events

    Build a cutting-edge national information system

    Ensure an appropriate information environment for decision makers to take informed decisions

    Enhance the personnel’s performance and skills and build their capacities in accordance to methodological plans.

WAFA’s legal framework

    The PLO Executive Committee’s decision of June 5, 1972, which was based on the decision adopted by the Palestinian National Council in its extraordinary session in April 1972, serves as the legal framework governing the presence ]operation[ of WAFA. Following the establishment of the Palestinian Authority (PA), and the subsequent relocated of its headquarters to Palestine, WAFA has become subject to the Information Law of 1996. However, this has not entailed any change in WAFA’s legal, structural and political status.

    On March 20, 2008, President Mahmoud Abbas issued a presidential decree merging the General (State) Information Service and the Palestinian News Agency in one institution called the Palestinian News & Information Agency (WAFA). The decree has institutionally restructured WAFA in terms of job specializations and tasks based on the organizational structure, taking into account the hierarchical reporting line in a manner that ensures the better implementation of job tasks, in line with the relevant administrative rules and regulations. On May 9, 2011, President Abbas also issued a presidential decree on the organization of WAFA’s work pursuant to Item II of Article VI on drawing up WAFA’s administrative and organizational structure, which ushered in a new institutional structure for WAFA in terms of job specializations and tasks.[/list]Functions and authorities

    WAFA exercises the following functions and authorities pursuant to the Presidential Decree No. 6 of 2011 on Regulating WAFA’s Work:

      Gather news, produce studies and information, and conduct, broadcast and disseminate press investigations in accordance with the provisions of the presidential decree,

      Develop and train WAFA’s vocational staff in order to achieve WAFA’s goals and orientations,

Israel bombs Gaza massacring
    436 people including 91 children
Residential buildings in the besieged Gaza Strip have been subjected to relentless bombardments by Israeli occupation forces, resulting in a devastating toll of massacred civilians.

Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported, on Monday, that the Israeli occupation carried out intense airstrikes on the Gaza Strip, targeting civilian homes and several mosques.

Palestinian Health Ministry reported that 436 citizens were martyred, including 91 children and 61 women, in addition to 2,271 wounded, including 244 children and 151 women due to the Israeli brutal aggression on Gaza.

Earlier, Al Mayadeen correspondent reported that the Israeli occupation forces waged brutal and indiscriminate airstrikes on the Gaza Strip using thermobaric weapons not to mention phosphorus bombs, which are banned under international law,

Meanwhile, Israeli media reported that 1,000 tons of explosives have been dropped on Gaza so far.

'Israel' is intentionally wiping out entire Palestinian families on purpose

The Israeli occupation forces committed a massacre early Monday in Rafah, the Gaza Strip, by bombarding residential buildings, murdering an entire family in the Strip's south in cold blood.

As a result of the occupation's extensive shelling, scores of casualties were reported between martyrs and the wounded.

Airstrikes were renewed in the northeastern and northwestern areas of the Gaza Strip, while civil defense teams faced significant challenges in rescuing the injured from under the rubble of targeted houses and locations.

The Israeli occupation warplanes targeted residential homes, mosques, and public institutions throughout the night, launching violent and indiscriminate airstrikes on various areas of the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli occupation forces also conducted violent airstrikes on a home in Beit Lahia, as well as the Karama area and al-Tuffah neighborhood east of Gaza City.

Another series of air raids targeted a house in the Musabah area in Rafah, with another afflicting the Sheikh Ahmad Yassin mosque in al-Shati' refugee camp west of Gaza, which caused material damage to neighboring homes.

Martyr Ibrahim Hamdan's family home in the Tel al-Zaatar district of the Jabaliya refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip was attacked, causing damage to numerous adjacent houses and leaving the fate of its members unknown.

Moreover, the first respondents were able to transfer several injuries and martyrs from the Shati refugee camp after the Sheikh Ahmed Yassin Mosque was targeted, and another group of injuries and martyrs were transferred due to the targeting of a house in Tel al-Zaatar.

Airstrikes are ongoing in Beit Hanoun, northern Gaza. Due to the intense airstrikes, ambulance teams were unable to reach the areas targeted in Beit Hanoun, while several main roads had been destroyed as a result of Israeli bombardment.

Israel massacres 704 in overnight airstrikes

"Israel" has intensified its brutal airstrikes across Gaza, leading to hundreds of killings and thousands of injuries among civilians, including journalists

Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported that a state of calm prevails in the Strip after a night of intense Israeli airstrikes.

Journalists Saeed Al-Taweel, Mohammad Sobh, and Hisham al-Nwajha were martyred in an Israeli bombing that targeted areas in the western Gaza Strip, Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported.

    In yet another war crime, Israeli occupation forces target journalists who are covering its aggression on Gaza
Our correspondent previously reported that the Israeli occupation is deliberately targeting journalists covering the ongoing aggression on the Strip.

The three journalists were killed as "Israel" bombed and destroyed a residential building in Western Gaza, in close proximity to Al Mayadeen's office in the Gaza Strip.

The war crime comes in conjunction with intensified IOF strikes across Gaza, leading to hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries among civilians.

    — Al Mayadeen English (@MayadeenEnglish) October 9, 2023

The occupation has targeted residential areas, Mosques, residential buildings, and ambulances.

In the same context, a government official in Gaza has stated that the Israeli occupation had collectively wiped out 15 families.

Our correspondent highlighted that the bombing witnessed on Monday is by far the harshest since the Israeli occupation launched its bombing campaign on the Strip.

    IOF employ internationally prohibited white phosphorus bombs in Gaza
In a response to the announcement made by the Israeli security minister Yoav Gallant, ordering a full siege of the city, Omar Shakir, Human Rights Watch "Israel" and Palestine Director for Human Rights, posted on X that depriving a population of food and electricity is "collective punishment" and that this is the Israeli occupation's method of utilizing starvation as a weapon of war.

According to the Israeli Energy Minister Israel Katz, all the water supply from "Israel" to Gaza has been cut off.

Gallant, as quoted by GLZ Radio, has ordered to cut off electricity, water, and food from Gaza in the aftermath of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood.

He revealed the occupation's true face by referring to the Palestinians in Gaza as "human animals," whom he will have to deal with "accordingly".

Hamas declares general mobilization

Hamas called for general mobilization next Friday under: “Friday of the Al-Aqsa Flood” in support of Al-Quds, Al-Aqsa, and Gaza

In an official statement, Hamas called on the determined youth across the occupied West Bank and occupied Al-Quds to take to the streets in large numbers to confront the Israeli occupation forces, affirming the "unity of path and destiny in the quest to free Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa from the grasp of the fascist occupation."

Addressing the Palestinians from the territories occupied in 1948, the movement stated: "This day is your day to mobilize, assemble, and be stationed at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, in solidarity with your fellow people in Gaza and the West Bank."

The statement further highlighted that "the Palestinian resistance, led by the Al-Qassam Brigades at the forefront, is creating heroic epics of valor and sacrifice against the Israeli occupation. They are defending the land, Al-Quds, and the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, safeguarding the dignity of the steadfast women of Palestine, and achieving victory for our free prisoners and honorable captives, on behalf of the entire nation."

    Look at #Gaza, bombed, destroyed, without water or electricity, and with #Palestinian martyrs stuck beneath the rubble of residential buildings, mosques, and schools that the Israeli occupation targeted mercilessly without prior notice.

The movement also urged the masses of the Arab and Islamic nations, along with the Palestinian people worldwide, including those in refugee camps and the diaspora, to march towards the borders of Palestine in massive gatherings, declaring their solidarity with Palestine, Al-Quds, and Al-Aqsa.

"For those who are geographically distant, they should assemble at the nearest point toward occupied Jerusalem", it stated.

This comes as "Israel" intensifies its brutal airstrikes across Gaza, leading to hundreds of killings and thousands of injuries among civilians, including journalists.

The occupation has targeted residential areas, Mosques, residential buildings, ambulances, and hospitals.

In the same context, a government official in Gaza has stated that the Israeli occupation had collectively wiped out 15 families.

Our correspondent highlighted that the bombing witnessed on Tuesday is by far the harshest since the Israeli occupation launched its bombing campaign on the Strip.

Mass rallies in support of Palestinian

Several cities around the world witness rallies and demonstrations in solidarity with the Palestinian people amid the ongoing Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip

For the fourth day in a row, thousands of Jordanians on Tuesday participated in mass rallies in support of the Palestinian Resistance's Operation Al-Aqsa Flood and in condemnation of the Israeli occupation aggression against the Gaza Strip.

The participants raised the Jordanian and Palestinian flags and banners expressing support for the Resistance and called for the mobilization of all popular and official efforts to lift the siege imposed on Gaza and stop the Zionist aggression, which claimed the lives of hundreds of martyrs and left thousands wounded.

The protesters demanded serious action from Arab and Islamic countries to put an end to the occupation's ongoing violations against the Palestinian people.

In the same context, several other cities around the world witnessed rallies and demonstrations in solidarity with Palestine.

Pro-Palestine activists held a protest outside the White House in Washington, D.C., and staged similar protests in several US cities, calling on the Biden administration to end military aid to "Israel".

In the French city of Marseille, hundreds demonstrated, waving Palestinian flags and chanting "Israel is a killer and Macron is an accomplice," despite the ban on demonstrations.

In the city of Sheffield in northern England, activists staged a protest denouncing the raising of the Israeli occupation flag on the municipal building. One of the participants climbed to the top of the building and removed the Israeli flag, replacing it with the Palestinian one.

In addition, several demonstrations in solidarity with the Palestinian cause were also organized in British cities, such as Birmingham, Manchester, and Brighton.

London saw protests outside the headquarters of the Israeli occupation embassy in rejection of the ongoing aggression on the Gaza Strip.

Similarly, thousands of members of the Arab and Palestinian communities and Spanish political parties supporting the Palestinian cause demonstrated in the Spanish capital, Madrid, denouncing the Israeli aggression against civilians in the Gaza Strip.

The protesters denounced the international silence over the crimes committed by the Israeli occupation, as well as the West and the US turning a blind eye to the Palestinian blood spilled by the Israeli war machine.

On Monday, hundreds of pro-Palestinian demonstrators gathered Monday in the heart of Manhattan, denouncing the Israeli occupation government and demanding that the United States stop supporting its ally, amid an ongoing Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip.

People of all ages stood outside the Israeli consulate general waving Palestinian flags. Young activists wearing Palestinian keffiyeh headscarves took turns at a megaphone to demand a "free Palestine" and "an end of the colonization and occupation of our Arab land."

In Ireland, hundreds of pro-Palestine activists demonstrated outside the Israeli embassy in the capital, Dublin.

Canada has witnessed rallies organized by various groups across the country, including Toronto, where some 1,000 protesters rallied in a rally organized by the Palestinian Youth Movement.

In Australia, hundreds of supporters of the Palestinian cause marched on Monday evening to Sydney's Opera House. Protesters lit red flares outside the iconic Australian landmark, carrying banners with messages such as "Where there is apartheid resistance is justified."

This comes as the Israeli occupation continues its brutal aggression against the Gaza Strip, targeting innocent civilians in residential buildings, journalists covering the aggression, and ambulances with extensive airstrikes, amid a stifling siege cutting off water and electricity to the Strip.

Recently, the Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed that the number of Palestinians killed in the Israeli aggression on the Strip has risen to 922 martyrs, including 260 children and 230 women, while the number of those wounded has reached 4,500 people.

URGENT WARNING:

Al Mayadeen statement on disinformation
    attributed to the network
Al Mayadeen denies circulated news attributed to it reporting that Hezbollah has called on the Lebanese army and UNIFIL peacekeepers to evacuate their positions.

Propaganda tools affiliated with different media platforms have started manufacturing and propagating fake news while citing Al Mayadeen as a source

The circulating news, citing Al Mayadeen as a source, reporting that Hezbollah has called on the Lebanese army and UNIFIL peacekeepers to evacuate their positions along the southern Lebanese borders, is fabricated.

Al Mayadeen Media Network urges all its followers to obtain its news from the original verified platforms: the official websites, social platforms, television station, and verified official accounts.

The Network kindly requests that activists and followers not recklessly spread any information attributed to Al Mayadeen without referring back to the verified and official platforms.

It also warns media outlets, websites, and accounts, associated with promoting fake news and falsely attributing them to Al Mayadeen, of legal action and public disclosure.

Palestine, Lebanon, and the region as a whole are going through delicate and dangerous situations that are extremely sensitive. Hence, this requires all of us to handle news responsibly.

Al Mayadeen acknowledges that such complex situations breed misinformation. Stunts of media, psychological, and intelligence warfare proliferate in such situations, especially against professional media supporting the rights of the Palestinian people.

The Network is committed to providing the public with accurate, honest, and trustworthy information that triumphs the nation and its rights and does not hinder or betray it in any way.

20 settlements completely destroyed

Israeli media talk about the damage inflicted on the Gaza envelope settlements and admit that there are settlements that were completely destroyed

"In no war event was there damage to the extent that even approached a fifth of this damage," with these words, Israeli media expressed the extent of the damage inflicted upon the Gaza envelope settlements that were infiltrated by al-Qassam Brigade Resistance fighters on the first day of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood.

According to the assessment of "Israel's" Ministry of Finance, the material damages accumulated to 3 billion Shekels after "20 settlements were destroyed, the largest of which were also burned to the ground," including "The houses, infrastructure, roads, dairy farms, and agricultural areas."

The successful operation destroyed illegal settlements occupied by Israeli settlers in the Gaza envelope, and the Israeli occupation authorities announced that "In no war event was there damage to the extent that even approached a fifth of this damage. Not even in the Lebanon wars, in operations that took weeks like Cast Lead, and the Scud missile fire from Iraq on Israeli cities."

Moreover, the Occupation authorities stressed that parallel to the direct material damage, which included the loss of "agricultural plots in which crops cannot be renewed for a long period of time," there were indirect Israeli losses. This is considered a step closer to liberation for Palestinians and Arabs, stressing "the loss of income in agriculture and tourism for a long period of time."

Operation Al-Aqsa Flood will go down in history for multiple reasons, amongst which are intelligence and military superiority on the ground for the Palestinian Resistance in the face of the Israeli Occupation Forces and the amount of destruction inflicted upon Israeli settlements and settlers alike.

Israeli deaths exceed 1,200 amid public frustration

The number of dead Israelis, as a result of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, has increased to around 1,200, and those injured have exceeded 2,900, the Israeli Broadcasting Authority said in a post on X on Wednesday.

The Israeli Ynet news website said that the number of Israeli deaths since the operation was launched on Saturday exceeds 1,200, adding that more than 200 Israelis were held captive by the Palestinian Resistance in the Gaza Strip.

The families of those held captive have warned Israeli occupation President Isaac Herzog, saying that if their sons and daughters do not return from Gaza, they "will shake Israel to its core if necessary," emphasizing that they "will not accept leaving them in Gaza."

Israeli media outlets reported on the growing anger and frustration among settlers in the Gaza envelope settlements and the families of Israeli captives.

Settlers of the Gaza Envelope are pleading for help while trying to take shelter in their settlement apartments amid the ongoing barrages of rockets launched by the Resistance in Gaza and continuing infiltration operations.

Factcheck: 'Israel' has no information
    on Hamas murdering babies
United States media outlets widely circulate information claiming Resistance fighters murdered 40 babies in "Kfar Aza", however, the facts say otherwise

    Israelis have no information regarding "Hamas beheading babies," an IOF spokesperson told Anadolu Agency, following widely circulated fake news on the matter
The information went viral in Western media outlets and by officials who sought to defame the Palestinian Resistance by reporting on unverified information provided by "Israel's" i24 TV correspondent.

The correspondent in question is Nicole Zedeck. She was attached to a unit of the IOF that had been dispatched to the "Kfar Aza" kibbutz where fierce confrontations took place between Palestinian Resistance fighters and Israeli occupation forces and settlers since Saturday morning.

During her coverage, Zedeck claimed that the unit's commander had told her that 40 dead babies had been found in "Kfar Aza", some of which had been "beheaded by terrorists", she said referring to Palestinian Resistance fighters that crossed over the separation wall from Gaza to confront soldiers and settlers that have occupied their homeland for more than 75 years.

Zedeck then posted on X contradicting her claims, saying, "Soldiers told me they believe 40 babies/children were killed."

Zedeck did not present any evidence on what she was claiming, nor did she present a reliable source, as the source itself, which is Israeli soldiers, did not actually admit to seeing the alleged massacre.

Thus, what Zedeck presented as a given fact, was mere hearsay propagated with the absolute intention to condemn the Palestinian resistance and justify the brutal Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip.

Western media defames Resistance

However, Zedeck's reporting was quickly picked up on by Fox News, CNN, and Business Insider all of which presented the claims as a fact, condemning Hamas for a crime it did not commit.

CNN published a news piece saying that "Hamas militants" had committed a "massacre" in "Kfar Aza" killing children and toddlers.

It said that it had contacted the IOF following the report streamed by the Israeli i24 TV.

Fox News made similar claims during a broadcast, saying that an Israeli occupation forces commander had found bodies of 40 babies some of whom had their heads cut off in "Kfar Aza".

Business Insider went out on a limb, writing an extensive piece building on the baseless claims made by Zedeck.

The news website failed to confirm information after contacting Major Nir Dinar, a spokesperson of the IOF, who did not provide any details on the matter.

Dinar himself said that he had not seen images or videos of such incidents himself, saying it was "soldiers on the ground who are there told me this."

Nonetheless, Business Insider found it fitting to title the piece, "IDF says Hamas fighters killed and decapitated babies at one kibbutz near the Gaza border."

Biden falls into the trap

US President Joe Biden said there are "reports of babies being killed," in a White House address meant to reiterate his administration's support for the Israeli occupation.

He called Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, launched by the Palestinian Resistance in Gaza, and the actions carried out during it as "sheer evil" while completely disregarding all the actions taken by the Israeli occupation against Palestinians.

"There are moments in this life - I mean this literally - when a pure unadulterated evil is unleashed on this world," he said during a speech from the White House. "This is an act of sheer evil."

    Biden still failed to mention that the Israeli occupation was brutally killing civilians, using white phosphorus, and bombing religious sites and schools where people typically seek refuge in times of war
Ritchie Torress, a member of Congress representing New York, also posted on X saying, "The deplorables who cannot bring themselves to condemn the murder of babies as barbaric are revealing themselves to be nothing short of barbaric," reiterating statements made by Israeli officials who demonized Palestinians describing them as barbaric and animals.

Palestinian children murdered in cold blood

Mainstream Western media and US politicians remain absent-minded to the extensive crimes carried out by the Israeli occupation against Palestinians and civilians, specifically children in the region.

As of September 19, the occupation holds 170 Palestinian children in captivity among 5,200 others, whose liberation is the main target of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood.

    Moreover, at least 260 Palestinian children have been murdered by Israeli bombs in just four days, in what can only be described as deliberate targeting of civilians by the Israeli occupation forces who have failed to push back against Resistance fighters on the battlefield
