Russian Defense Minister: Israel Bears Full Responsibility For Downing Of IL-20 Off Syrian Coast

Russian Defense Minister: Israel Bears Full Responsibility For Downing Of IL-20 Off Syrian Coast

Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu officially stated that Israel bears full responsibility for the downning of Russian IL-20 plane off Syrian coast because its actions had led to this situation.

“The blame for the downing of the Russian plane and the deaths of its crew members lies squarely on the Israeli side,” Shoigu said during a convesation with Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman on the phone. “The actions of the Israeli military were not in keeping with the spirit of the Russian-Israeli partnership, so we reserve the right to respond.”

Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry revealed that Israeli warplanes used the IL-20 to hide from Syrian air defense fire during the September 17 strike on targets in the war-torn country. MORE HERE

On September 4, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) stated that over the last 1.5 years Israel has carried out around 200 airstrikes on Syria using 800 munitions. The scale of the strikes shows Israel’s long-standing intention to remain a powerbroker in the ongoing Syrian conflict. It’s interesting to note that in most of the cases, the IDF strikes led to a further escalation of the war thus making situation more complicated.

The situation is developing.

Russian Military: IL-20 Was Shot Down By Syrian S-200 Because Of Israeli F-16s Used It As Cover

Russian Military: IL-20 Was Shot Down By Syrian S-200 Because Of Israeli F-16s Used It As Cover

On September 18, the Russian Defense Ministry revealed additional details on the IL-20 disappearance over the Mediterranean Sea last evening.

According to Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov, the plane was shot down by Syria’s S-200 air defense system because Israel’s F-16 fighters used it as a cover.

By using the Russian plane as a cover the Israeli air pilots made it vulnerable to Syrian air defense fire. As a result, the Ilyushin-20, its reflective surface being far greater than that of F-16, was downed by a missile launched with the S-200 system,” Konashenkov said. “The bombing raid was not far from France’s frigate The Auvergne and in close proximity to the UIyushin-20 plane of Russia’s Aerospace Force that was about to land.”

Konashenkov added that Israeli warplanes had been carrying out strikes in the area of Latakia and deliberately created a dangerous situation for surface ships and aircraft in that area. He added that Russia reserves the right to give a due response.

We see these provocative actions of Israel as hostile,” Konashenkov said. “Israel did not warn the command of the Russian troops in Syria about the planned operation. We received a notification via a hotline less than a minute before the strike, which did not allow the Russian aircraft to be directed to a safe zone.”

Israel’s Embassy in Moscow has refused to comment on the Russian statement on the IL-20 incident.

Meanwhile, Russian forces found the crash site of the downed IL-20. It’s located in the sea 27km west of the settlement of Banias, the province of Latakia. 8 vessels are participating in the search and rescue operation.

Gazans prepare for ‘Friday of martyrs’ after carnage

Palestinians are gathering for fresh protests in the Gaza Strip after Israeli massacre of more than 60 people in the besieged enclave on Monday. 

The committee which organized weekly “March of Return” rallies has called on the Gazans to come out en masse on the first day of the fasting month of Ramadan, under the slogan “Friday for the martyrs and the wounded.”

Israeli snipers, tanks and armored vehicles remain deployed near the Gaza fence after they killed at least 62 Gazans on the same day the US opened its embassy in occupied Jerusalem al-Quds.

Tens of thousands of people have been protesting along the fortified fence since March 30, calling for Palestinian refugees and their descendants to be allowed to return to their homes now inside Israel.

On Thursday, Israel carried out airstrikes on what it described as militant sites in Gaza, apparently targeting Hamas which it accuses of organizing protest rallies. The Palestinian Health Ministry said one man was injured during the attacks.

UN voting to probe Gaza attacks

Israel was also scrambling to thwart a special session by the United Nations Human Rights Council on Friday to decide whether to dispatch “an independent commission of inquiry” to investigate allegations of Israeli war crimes in Gaza.

The team would be mandated to look into “alleged violations and abuses, including those that may amount to war crimes and to identify those responsible,” read the text of a resolution submitted on Thursday night.

The commission should look at “ending impunity and ensuring legal accountability, including individual criminal and command responsibility, for such violations,” it added.

The Israeli mission at the United Nations has been ordered to prevent the investigation, said a Thursday report by Israel’s Channel 10.

Meanwhile, international condemnation of the Israeli killing, which shocked the world by its ferocity, continued. On Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron condemned the “heinous acts” committed by Israel.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki, who was addressing a meeting of the Arab League, called the carnage “a bloody racist massacre committed by the Israeli occupation forces in cold blood against our defenseless people.”

More than 2,700 Palestinians were wounded as the Israeli forces used snipers, tank fire and tear gas to target the demonstrators. A Canadian physician was shot by an Israeli sniper in both legs while treating the injured.

“Canada deplores and is gravely concerned by the violence in the Gaza strip that has led to a tragic loss of life and injured countless people,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Thursday.

“We are appalled that Dr Tarek Loubani, a Canadian citizen, is among the wounded – along with so many unarmed people, including civilians, members of the media, first responders, and children.”

Palestinian protesters have hoped to draw attention to a dire humanitarian crisis in Gaza, where the economy has collapsed under an Egyptian-Israeli blockade since 2007.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said on Thursday he had made a rare decision to open the Rafah crossing with Gaza for a month, allowing Palestinians to cross during the holy period of Ramadan.

The Rafah crossing is Gaza’s only gateway to the outside world not controlled by Israel, but Egypt has largely sealed it in recent years under a security cooperation agreement with Tel Aviv.

80+ INGOs demand accountability for Israel’s unlawful killing of demonstrators in Gaza strip

PNN/

AIDA, a network of more than 80 INGOs operating in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt), on Tuesday condemned Israel’s unlawful killing of demonstrators at the border of the Gaza Strip on 14 May 2018. So far, 61 Palestinians have been killed, including one medic and eight children, and over 2,700 others have been injured, the majority by live ammunition fired at protesters by Israeli security forces, according to the Ministry of Health in Gaza. The casualties occurred in the context of protests near the fence with Israel.

“Israel’s continued use of lethal and excessive live-ammunition against protestors is not only deplorable, but also in sharp contravention of international law,” said William Bell, Head of Middle East Policy and Advocacy, Christian Aid.

Monday’s demonstration is a culmination of a sequence of protests organized since 30 March 2018 to mark 70 years since the expulsion of more than 750,000 Palestinians from their homes in 1948. More than 70 % of Gaza’s population are refugees, living under dire circumstances in the besieged Strip.

“The Gaza Strip is on the verge of a humanitarian disaster as a result of 11 years of blockade, which has crippled Gaza’s economy and increased aid dependency, with some 84 % dependent on humanitarian assistance, and an unemployment rate which stands at a staggering 45 %. Gaza is an open air prison for 2 million women, men, boys and girls, living under air, sea and land blockade. People are losing hope that the untenable situation they find themselves in will ever be resolved”, said Chris Eijkemans, Country Director for Oxfam in the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel.

Since 30 March, more than 100 Palestinians have been killed, and another 12,271 injured, including hundreds of children. In addition, medical personnel and facilities have also come under fire, resulting in the injury of 211 medical staff and damage sustained to 25 ambulances, according to WHO. Hospitals are at the brink of collapse, unable to deal with the vast number of injured as a result of a decade-long blockade and insufficient electricity and medical supplies and equipment. Due to the near impossibility of obtaining a medical referral for surgery outside of the Gaza Strip, 21 Palestinians injured during demonstrations have so far had limb amputations since 30 March.

According to international law, lethal fire may only be used in circumstances where threat to life is imminent. Israeli forces are obliged to exercise restraint and refrain from excessive use of force, and respect Palestinians’ right to life, health and freedom of assembly. Targeting medical personnel is a breach of IHL and is considered a War Crime under the Rome Statute. Preventing injured persons from accessing treatment is a violation of their right to health, and amounts to collective punishment.

AIDA called on third states to condemn Israel’s unlawful killings and to step up their pressure on Israel to immediately halt its practice of using live ammunition against unarmed demonstrators, which runs contrary to Israel’s obligations under international law, and to lift its unlawful blockade of the Gaza Strip. Echoing the words of UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, AIDA urges third states to demand independent and credible investigations into the incidents, and for those responsible to be held to account.

Le forze israeliane hanno ucciso circa 2 mila minorenni palestinesi dall’inizio della 2ª Intifada

MEMO e Anadolu. Le forze d’occupazione israeliane hanno ucciso circa 2 mila minorenni palestinesi dall’inizio della 2ª Intifada (al-Aqsa), nel settembre del 2000. I dati sono stati forniti Defense of Children International.
In media, ciò significa che un minorenne palestinese è stato ucciso da un israeliano in divisa ogni tre giorni, negli ultimi 18 anni. È una statistica scioccante.
Ayed Qtish, direttore dell’ONG Palestine Branch, ha anche dichiarato ad Anadolu che gli israeliani arrestano ed imprigionano circa 700 minorenni palestinesi ogni anno, e che le forze di sicurezza dell’occupazione li hanno portato davanti a simulazioni di tribunali, maltrattandoli al fine di estrarre loro alcune “confessioni”.
L’ultimo rapporto del gruppo per i diritti umani ha affermato che le autorità d’occupazione hanno arrestato oltre 14 mila ragazzini palestinesi dall’inizio della Seconda Intifada, di cui 350 sono ancora detenuti in carcere.
Il rapporto di Defence of Children International è stato pubblicato in occasione della Giornata internazionale dei bambini palestinesi, il 5 aprile scorso.

Giornata della Terra nella Striscia di Gaza: 15 Palestinesi uccisi e oltre 1400 feriti

https://i0.wp.com/www.infopal.it/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/29683285_10211681980671316_7291574092330393660_n.jpg

Nella Striscia di Gaza sotto assedio israelo-egiziani la popolazione è in marcia, pacificamente, per commemorare la Giornata della Terra, Yom al-Ard.

Da giorni, Israele ha piazzato cecchini, truppe e droni pronti a sparare.

Al momento, 15 Palestinesi sono stati uccisi e oltre 1400 sono stati feriti.

Venerdì, decine di migliaia di palestinesi nella Striscia di Gaza sono confluiti al confine orientale della Striscia con Israele, radunandosi per affermare il loro diritto di tornare alle loro case native nella Palestina storica.

I raduni sono sostenuti da praticamente tutte le fazioni politiche palestinesi, che hanno ripetutamente sottolineato la natura pacifica dell’evento.

A mezzogiorno, decine di migliaia di palestinesi erano già arrivati ​​in diverse aree lungo il confine nella Striscia di Gaza settentrionale, centrale e meridionale, secondo i corrispondenti della zona.

Gli accampamenti sono stati allestiti lungo il confine – a soli 700 metri dalla barriera, in alcuni casi -per i sit-in a tempo indeterminato programmati dopo le marce del venerdì.

Gli attivisti palestinesi hanno descritto gli accampamenti come “il punto d’inizio per il nostro ritorno alla terra da cui siamo stati espulsi nel 1948”.

Alcuni di quelli che hanno preso parte alle marce di venerdì hanno scritto, all’entrata delle loro tende, i nomi delle città o dei villaggi da cui le loro famiglie furono sfollate.

Gli organizzatori hanno anche fornito un servizio di autobus gratuito al confine per chiunque voglia prendere parte all’evento.

A mezzogiorno, i funzionari sanitari palestinesi stavano già segnalando alcuni feriti alla frontiera.

Soprannominata “Great Return March”, i raduni di questo venerdì nella Striscia di Gaza coincidono anche con la Giornata della Terra, che commemora l’assassinio di sei palestinesi da parte delle forze israeliane nel 1976.

An F-16I, operated by the Israeli military (file photo by AFP)

An F-16I, operated by the Israeli military (file photo by AFP)

Below is a quick look at Israel’s acts of military aggression against Syria:

June 9-10, 1967: Israel attacks Syria, occupying the country’s Golan Heights during its Six Day War on Arab territories.

October 5, 2003 (Ain es Saheb airstrike): An Israeli warplane squadron attacks a camp about 24 kilometers northwest of the Syrian capital, Damascus, injuring a civilian guard.

September 6, 2007: Israel attacks Dayr al-Zawr Province in northeastern Syria, striking what it says is a suspected nuclear reactor.

November 11, 2012: Israel fires a “warning shot” in the direction of Syria, alleging that it is responding to a stray mortar round fired from the southwestern Syrian province of Quneitra.

November 17, 2012: Israel opens artillery fire against positions belonging to the Syrian Army, alleging that it was retaliating for attacks on an Israeli patrol near the demilitarized zone. It later stages a direct strike at the source of mortar shells that it says the Syrian Army fired in response to the first Israeli strike.

January 30, 2013: Israeli warplanes strike a convoy that Tel Aviv claims was carrying weapons to Hezbollah.

March 24, 2013: The Israeli military releases a guided missile at a Syrian trench used for deploying machineguns. It alleges it is responding to shots fired at Israeli forces in the occupied Golan Heights, though affirming that none of its troops had been wounded in the alleged incident there.

May 21, 2013: Israeli forces attack what they say is the source of fire targeting an Israeli vehicle in the Golan Heights.

July 17, 2013: The Israeli military fires at a group of unidentified individuals on Syria’s border after an Israeli patrols comes under purported fire near the demilitarized zone.

August 17, 2013: Israeli forces hit a Syrian Army outpost with a guided missile, alleging that they are responding to Syrian mortar rounds.

March 18, 2014: Israel hits Syrian military targets, including a military headquarters and an Army base, with artillery and aerial fire, describing the attacks as tit-for-tat strikes after a purported explosive goes off near an Israeli military vehicle close to the Syrian border. It says one Israeli soldier was killed in the alleged incident.

March 28, 2014: Israeli forces fire volleys of bullets at what the regime calls the source of Syrian mortar shells fired at Israeli military positions on Mount Hermon in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

June 23, 2014: The Israeli regime bombards Syrian Army targets several times, killing at least 10 Syrian soldiers in response to an alleged strike a day earlier on a water truck moving along the border fence.

July 15, 2014: The Israeli military kills 18 Syrians, including eight civilians, in attacks on three locations on Syrian soil. It says it had come under rocket attack in the occupied Golan Heights earlier.

September 23, 2014: Israel downs a Syrian military aircraft that it alleges wandered into the occupied Golan Heights.

August 20, 2015: Israel takes Quneitra and its neighboring province of Rif Dimashq under successive airstrikes, hitting Syrian military outposts and soldiers. The regime claims it had come under rocket fire in the occupied Golan Heights and the Upper Galilee area earlier. It kills five civilians in an attack on a vehicle a day later, claiming it is seeking to take out those behind the rocket attacks.

November 28, 2016: Israel hits an abandoned UN building in the occupied Golan Heights, claiming it is suspected of being used by the militants.

March 16-17, 2017: Israel confirms, for the first time, that it targeted what it called a convoy belonging to the Hezbollah resistance movement near the Syrian ancient city of Palmyra. The attack marked the deepest foray by Israel into Syrian territory yet.

October 21, 2017: Israel hits Syrian artillery positions after five mortar rounds come down in an open area in the occupied Golan Heights. Syrian government sources say later that the mortar fire, which caused no damage or casualties, had been aimed at “terrorists linked to Israel.” The terrorists, they say, “had [themselves] launched mortar shells, upon the instructions of the Israeli occupation, on an area of empty land inside the occupied territories to give the Israeli enemy a pretext to carry out its aggression.”

February 10, 2018: The Israeli military conducts strikes against Syrian positions. The Syrian military hits at least one Israeli F-16 warplane during the attacks.

The Israeli military confirms the downing of the F-16.

La Difesa Aerea siriana respinge l’ultima aggressione israelo-statunitense

Il 10 febbraio, aerei israeliani attaccavano diverse aree in Siria, ma la difesa aerea siriana abbatteva 2 aviogetti dell’IAF (1 F-16I Sufa e 1 F-15I Baaz), sul nord d’Israele, impiegando missili del sistema di difesa aereo S-125 Pechora-2M. I piloti si eiettavano, ma uno decedeva in seguito alle ferite. Gli israeliani avevano tentato di attaccare le postazioni dell’EAS utilizzando missili da crociera, senza avvicinarsi allo spazio aereo siriano. Le difese aeree siriane (SyAAD) abbattevano i missili più pericolosi, lasciando andare quelli che non avrebbero causato danni in territorio siriano. L’aeroporto Ben Gurion di Tel Aviv veniva chiuso e le sirene antiaeree suonavano nelle alture del Golan e nella Galilea. Subito dopo gli israeliani, per “rappresaglia”, attaccavano le postazioni dell’EAS nella regione meridionale della Siria, mentre le difese aeree siriane sventavano il nuovo attacco. “Il nemico israeliano all’alba aveva attaccato una postazione militare nella regione centrale, e le difese aeree siriane respingevano l’attacco colpendo più di un aereo”. In seguito gli israeliani attaccavano alcune postazioni nella regione meridionale, che le difese aeree respingevano ancora una volta. In seguito, le autorità israeliane facevano appello alla Russia per contribuire a ridurre le tensioni al confine con la Siria; questo a seguito di un incontro urgente tra il Primo ministro, il ministro della Difesa e altri alti funzionari israeliani. Il disinformatore Magnyer tentava di spacciare la tesi che gli aviogetti israeliani siano stati abbattuti da missili iraniani Shaheen, cercando di giustificare a livello mediatico la propaganda sionista. Ma il sistema di difesa Shaheen è la copia iraniana del sistema statunitense Hawk, ed è quindi incompatibile con la rete dei sistemi di difesa aerea siriana d’impronta sovietica-russa.
Tutto questo avveniva poche ore dopo che l’Esercito arabo siriano spazzava via ogni residua presenza di al-Qaida e Stato Islamico dai governatorati di Hama ed Aleppo, liquidando in poche settimane una sacca di 1100 kmq con 500 terroristi intrappolati dentro. Il Comando Generale dell’Esercito e delle Forze Armate siriane dichiarava lo sradicamento dei terroristi dello SIIL e dei gruppi affiliati nelle aree tra Qanasir, Aleppo, Sinjar e Sinah. Inoltre, la bufala della strage di soldati siriani nel bombardamento statunitense su Tabiyah e Qasham, presso Dayr al-Zur, svanisce con l’ammissione dello stesso Mattis che le forze d’occupazione statunitensi avevano colpito solo 2 carri armati delle milizie tribali governative siriane; probabilmente si trattava di due autoveicoli civili, dato che le autorità siriane riferivano di 40 civili uccisi o feriti. I timori negli USA riguardo a un coinvolgimento in Siria sono sempre più acuti; il senatore degli Stati Uniti Tim Kaine, membro del comitato per le relazioni estere e i servizi armati del Senato, criticava l’attacco degli Stati Uniti, “Anche se sono grato che nessun membro degli Stati Uniti o della coalizione sia stato ferito nell’attacco, sono gravemente preoccupato dall’amministrazione Trump che volutamente s’infila in un grande conflitto, senza il voto del Congresso ed obiettivi chiari“. Mattis stesso mostrava dei dubbi sugli eventi a Dayr al-Zur, definendola “situazione di perplessità“, non potendo dare “alcuna spiegazione sul perché” forze filogovernative avrebbero attaccato una base delle SDF. Come affermano chiaramente le fonti governative siriane, non c’è mai stata alcuna operazione siriana contro il territorio occupato dalle SDF, ma un’operazione di ricognizione contro le infiltrazioni dello SIIL nel governatorato di Dayr al-Zur.
Va notato che almeno un paio di presunti ‘giornalisti freelence’ in Siria, un presunto corrispondente russo e un noto mercenario statunitense, hanno amplificato e spacciato tale operazione da guerra psicologica e di disinformazione. Il falso corrispondente russo arrivava a dire che nell’azione statunitense erano morti “130 mercenari russi” della compagnia Wagner (!?), mentre il mercenario statunitense, due ore prima dell’attacco statunitense, aveva tweettato che forze siriane stavano per attaccare obiettivi detenuti dalle SDF nella regione, lanciando alle forze militari del proprio Paese un preallarme. Le autorità siriane dovrebbero mostrare estrema attenzione verso coloro che si presentano come amici, solo per poi monitorare con metodi, modalità e scopi poco chiari, le aree del territorio siriano sottoposte a maggior conflitto.

Nel frattempo, un capo di Jabhat al-Nusra, Abu Yaman, e cinque sue guardie del corpo, venivano uccisi presso Jisr al-Shughur, a sud d’Idlib, da disertori della stessa organizzazione terroristica, mentre un elicottero d’attacco turco Agusta/TAI T-129B ATAK veniva abbattuto dalle YPG ad al-Qudah, presso Raju, a nord-ovest d’Ifrin. I due piloti restavano uccisi. Un’unità dell’Esercito arabo siriano respingeva l’attacco del gruppo terroristico Jabhat al-Nusra su Tal Hadada, ad est di Qinsiba, a nord di Lataqia, eliminando l’intero gruppo. Ad est di Damasco, tra Irbin e Harasta, la 4.ta Divisione dell’Esercito arabo siriano liberava diversi edifici, numerose trincee e cinque tunnel occupati dai terroristi dell’Hayat Tahrir al-Sham. Inoltre, un distaccamento delle Forze di Difesa Nazionali (NDF) liquidava 12 terroristi dello SIIL, e ne sequestrava l’autocarro che trasportava missili anticarro AGM-114 Hellfire e dispositivi per il controllo dei missili.

Demolire e deportare: bambini a rischio nella Jordan Valley

Non si può tacere davanti alla nuova grave violazione del Diritto umanitario internazionale programmata dal governo israeliano: abbattere la scuola del villaggio beduino di Khan al Ahmar costruita dalla ong italiana Vento di Terra col patrocinio del Consolato italiano di Gerusalemme, delle Nazioni Unite, della Conferenza Episcopale Italiana e della Cooperazione Italiana allo sviluppo.

La scuola è un campione di creatività essendo stata costruita col riciclo di pneumatici usati e senza fondazioni perché Israele nei territori che occupa e che amministra non consente costruzioni vere e proprie, neanche per i più elementari diritti umani, come il diritto all’istruzione.

Ma Israele questa scuola non l’ha mai voluta e da anni cerca scuse per abbatterla. In realtà vuole deportare l’intero villaggio di Khan al Ahmar, a partire dai 178 bambini che frequentano la scuola, ed avere mano libera per espandere gli insediamenti illegali e far passare il muro di separazione, altrettanto illegale, che mira a dividere in due tronconi la Palestina impedendo ogni possibile reale percorso di pace.

Tale violenza, che si configura, tra l’altro, come violazione degli artt. 49 e 53 della IV Convenzione di Ginevra, al momento è sottoposta al vaglio della Corte Suprema Israeliana che si esprimerà fra due giorni, altra aberrazione legale visto che, in mancanza di azioni da parte delle Organizzazione preposte alla tutela del Diritto internazionale ci si affida al tribunale dell’occupante “riconoscendogli” un ruolo super partes!

Bambini e insegnanti hanno anticipato di due settimane l’apertura dell’anno scolastico per presidiare la loro scuola e chiedono attenzione mondiale al loro problema che, se nello specifico è il problema di 178 bambini, in realtà è la violazione di più principi del Diritto universale e ci riguarda tutti.

Per tutto ciò la nostra Associazione si unisce all’appello della Comunità Internazionale a sostegno del diritto allo studio e all’autodeterminazione delle comunità beduine in Palestina e sollecita i media a dare la dovuta attenzione a questo ennesimo caso di violazione della dignità umana per mano di uno Stato, come quello di Israele, ritenuto, con sempre minori ragioni, uno Stato democratico.
