  • Hamas says 7 October attacks ’necessary step’
    21 January 2024 16:46 GMT| Middle East Eye

    Palestinian group Hamas said on Sunday that its 7 October attacks in southern Israel were a “necessary step” against Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories.

    But the group admitted in a 16-page report about the attack that “some faults happened… due to the rapid collapse of the Israeli security and military system, and the chaos caused along the border areas with Gaza”.

    The document was the group’s first public report released in English and Arabic explaining the background to the attack, when the militants broke through Gaza’s militarised border. The attack resulted in the deaths of about 1,140 people and the taking of around 250 hostages.

    The militant group said the attack was “a necessary step and a normal response to confront all Israeli conspiracies against the Palestinian people”.

    “If there was any case of targeting civilians it happened accidently and in the course of the confrontation with the occupation forces,” Hamas said in the report.

    “Many Israelis were killed by the Israeli army and police due to their confusion.”

    In the statement, Hamas urged “the immediate halt of the Israeli aggression on Gaza, the crimes and ethnic cleansing committed against the entire Gaza population”.

    “We stress that the Palestinian people have the capacity to decide their future and to arrange their internal affairs,” the statement said, adding that “no party in the world” had the right to decide on their behalf.

      Hamas issues report on events of October 7

      The Palestinian group has released a report explaining the motives of the attack. Here are some of the key points the group raised:

      The report stresses the historical context of the conflict and the injustices that Palestinians have endured for decades, saying that Israel has been intensifying its abuses under Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing government. It adds that the October 7 attack was a “natural response” to the Israeli push to liquidate the Palestinian cause.
      Hamas rejects accusations that it deliberately targeted civilians during the attack – in which almost 1,140 people were killed, including 700 civilians – pointing to media reports about Israeli troops targeting cars and homes with Israelis inside. But the report acknowledges that disorder had ensued during the attack as the Israeli security apparatus collapsed swiftly around Gaza.
      The report urges an investigation into “all crimes in occupied Palestine” by the International Criminal Court, calling on its prosecutor to “immediately” start a probe on the ground.
      The Palestinian group reiterates that it is in a conflict against Israel, not against Jews because of their religion.
      Hamas calls for ending Israel’s offensive on Gaza and the withdrawal of Israeli troops from the territory, saying that Palestinians should be able to decide their own future.

       : Le Hamas rejette « tout projet international ou israélien visant à décider de l’avenir de la bande de Gaza »

      Le mouvement islamiste a exigé ce dimanche que « l’agression israélienne » au sein de l’enclave cesse, et a déclaré que seul le peuple palestinien doit décider de l’avenir de Gaza. « Nous rejetons catégoriquement tout projet international ou israélien visant à décider de l’avenir de la bande de Gaza », écrit le Hamas dans un document explicatif revenant par ailleurs sur son attaque perpétrée le 7 octobre sur le sol israélien.

      Dans le document, le mouvement islamiste palestinien considère que l’attaque du 7 octobre contre Israël était « une étape nécessaire » et une « réponse normale » face à « tous les complots israéliens contre le peuple palestinien ». Selon le Hamas, dans le « chaos » autour de la frontière entre Israël et la bande de Gaza, « peut-être que des erreurs ont eu lieu », mais la formation nie avoir visé des civils, si ce n’est « par accident, et au cours de confrontations avec les forces d’occupation ».

      Mille cent quarante personnes ont été tuées, rappelle l’Agence France-Presse, lors de cette attaque sans précédent en Israël. Il s’agissait en majorité de civils, selon un décompte de l’AFP à partir de données officielles israéliennes, notamment plus de 360 festivaliers à Réïm.

      The US-based Friends of the Jenin Freedom Theatre identified the staff members as General Manager Mustafa Sheta and Artistic Director Ahmed Tobasi and said they were taken from their homes. Tobasi’s brother, Mohammed, was also taken.

      “We have no information on the whereabouts or condition of these two vital members of a beloved cultural institution in Jenin. The last word we had from Ahmed Tobasi was, ‘They are going house to house. They are taking everyone,’” the organisation said in a statement.

      “More than 100 Palestinians have been seized in Jenin … The Israeli army has repeatedly, violently invaded the Jenin refugee camp where The Freedom Theatre is situated, with each attack escalating in violence.”

      At least six people have been killed in the latest invasion, which saw armoured bulldozers tearing up streets, drones dropping bombs on Palestinian homes, and a siege of the hospital blocking ambulances.

      “The Israeli army has killed 58 people in Jenin alone since October 7, including children,” the statement said.

    Posted on décembre 5, 2023 | Amira Hass | Haaretz | Traduction SK pour l’AURDIP


    « Ce dont nous avons vraiment besoin, ce sont de bulldozers pour creuser et nous enfouir profondément dans notre terre ».

    « J’avais prévu d’écrire sur la vie quotidienne pendant la trêve », m’a écrit mon ami Bassam Nasser vendredi matin depuis la bande de Gaza. « Les défis liés à l’approvisionnement en eau ; les prières pour qu’il ne pleuve pas ou que le temps ne soit pas nuageux afin que les panneaux solaires continuent à produire un peu d’électricité pour recharger les téléphones ; la recherche de n’importe quoi de mangeable.. les types de conversations avec les gens ; l’odeur des écoles-abris, les kilomètres de file d’attente pour remplir une bouteille de gaz de cuisine et les autres nombreux défis quotidiens. Mais au lieu de cela, je me suis réveillé au son des canons et des bombardements ».

    J’ai rencontré Bassam il y a 32 ans, alors qu’il étudiait la sociologie et le travail social à l’université al-Najah de Naplouse (avant qu’Israël ne commence à interdire aux étudiants de la bande de Gaza d’étudier en Cisjordanie). Il a obtenu une maîtrise en histoire du Moyen-Orient à l’université de Tel Aviv. Ayant travaillé l’essentiel de sa vie dans des organisations d’aide et de résolution des conflits, il a également terminé un cours sur les droits de l’homme aux États-Unis.

    En raison des bombardements des premiers jours de la guerre, lui et sa famille se sont arrachés de la ville de Gaza pour Deir al Balah, puis pour Rafah. « C’est l’endroit le plus proche de l’enfer », m’a-t-il écrit en hébreu. La plupart de ses messages sont en anglais, et c’est ce qu’il a écrit lorsque les bombardements ont repris : « Les espoirs d’une trêve prolongée étaient grands, certains étant optimistes quant à un cessez-le-feu à plus long terme. La directive décisive est venue de personnalités influentes souvent qualifiées de « maîtres de l’univers », qui ont exhorté Israël à faire preuve de retenue à mesure que ses opérations militaires progressaient dans le sud de la bande de Gaza.(...)

  • Border surveillance footage from 7 October ’disappears’: Israeli officers

    Israeli reserve officers say surveillance video and audio recordings from the Gaza border during the Hamas attack have been deleted, potentially to prevent an investigation into what happened that day

    News Desk | DEC 3

    Israeli military surveillance video from the Gaza border from 7 October, the day of Hamas’ surprise attack, has disappeared, Israeli news site Walla reported [ https://news.walla.co.il/item/3626341 ] on 3 December.

    During a visit by a senior female officer from the Israeli army general staff to the various division headquarters, senior officers in the reserves commented that “an invisible hand” had deleted videos from the various military surveillance cameras showing the events of that day, the Hebrew language outlet stated.

    The videos were deleted from the military network known as “ZeeTube,” potentially to prevent their use in an in-depth investigation of how thousands of Hamas fighters managed to breach the border fence and infiltrate Israel to carry out the attack.

    “We sat down with one of the generals and were going to show him a video about one of the events, and we found out that someone had deleted the videos,” said a senior reserve officer from one of the divisions, adding, “It was very embarrassing. Then suspicion arose as to why someone would do that. And at the end the excuses started that it was decided to give special privileges to certain officers to view the footage. Do officers in our ranks need privileges? It looks like a war between generals and officials. There is a feeling that everyone is now trying to take care of themselves for the day after,” when an investigation into events of that day takes place.

    Israeli officials, including top generals and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, have acknowledged the Hamas attack, in which 1,200 Israeli soldiers and civilians were killed, resulted from an intelligence failure. However, they insist the events of that day cannot be investigated until after the war in Gaza, in which some 20,000 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli bombing, ends. (...)

  • AI plays ‘central role’ in Israeli assault on Gaza: Report
    Experts have cast doubt on Israeli claims that using AI technology helps reduce the loss of civilian life
    News Desk | DEC 1, 2023

    Israel has been using AI to generate targets to strike during its war on the Gaza Strip, The Guardian reported on 1 December.

    The war which broke out after Operation Al-Aqsa Flood on 7 October has given Israel the opportunity to “use [AI] in a much wider theatre of operations and, in particular, to deploy an AI target-creation platform called ‘the Gospel,’ which has significantly accelerated a lethal production line of targets that officials have compared to a ‘factory,’” the outlet reported.

    According to The Guardian, the Gospel AI platform has played “a central role” in the Gaza war.

    The platform works to produce targeting recommendations “through the rapid and automatic extraction of intelligence … with the goal of a complete match between the recommendation of the machine and the identification carried out by a person,” the Israeli army said in a statement last month.

    Human cost of Israel’s war on Gaza

    It’s been 55 days since the start of the war.

    In that time, Israel has turned Gaza into what the UN has called “a graveyard for thousands of children“, waging a war on hospitals, schools and homes.

    This is the human cost of Israel’s war:

    The Gaza Health Ministry says more than 15,000 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli attacks since October 7.
    The figure includes more than 6,150 children.
    With at least 7,000 people still missing or feared buried under the rubble, the actual death toll could be far higher.
    More than 36,000 Palestinians have been wounded, many with life-altering injuries.
    With 26 of Gaza’s 35 hospitals out of service, their chances of getting treatment are slim.

    L’amère réalité pour nous, Palestiniens de Gaza, est que nous sommes seuls, assiégés et considérés comme des indésirables, même par certains de ceux qui sont censés être nos frères.

    Quarante-cinq jours de massacres barbares ont coûté la vie à plus de 15 000 personnes, dont plus de 6000 enfants et 4000 femmes.

    Parmi les milliers de personnes tués, on compte des étudiants, des médecins, des infirmières, des commerçants et des jeunes que leurs familles avaient envoyés chercher de la nourriture ou de l’eau.

    Plus de 7000 personnes sont toujours portées disparues, dont 4000 enfants – la plupart d’entre eux sont morts, ensevelis sous les décombres de leur maison.

    D’autres meurent dans les hôpitaux détruits par les bombardements, qui ne sont plus opérationnels, et dans les quelques hôpitaux qui fonctionnent encore, mais qui ne peuvent pas faire face aux dizaines de milliers de blessés en raison du manque de personnel et de matériel médical.

    Bientôt, ils seront encore plus nombreux à mourir de maladie, de faim et du froid hivernal.

  • ‘Devastating’: Volunteer recalls last hours at besieged Indonesian Hospital
    By Aisyah Llewellyn | Published On 27 Nov 2023 | Al Jazeera

    Medan, Indonesia – As Israeli tanks and troops laid siege to the Indonesian Hospital in northern Gaza last week, volunteer medical worker Fikri Rofiul Haq faced the choice of evacuating to safety or staying with his patients.

    Haq and fellow his Indonesian colleagues, Reza Aldilla Kurniawan and Farid Zazabil Al Ayubi, volunteers with the Jakarta-based Medical Emergency Rescue Committee (MER-C), opted to stay put until the Israeli military forced them to leave, he said.

    “We were evacuated via a route used by the International Red Cross with the permission of the Israeli army. There were three evacuations on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and we were evacuated last as we prioritised the wounded who were at the Indonesian Hospital,” Haq told Al Jazeera.

    Haq said that Israeli forces deliberately destroyed the Indonesian-funded hospital’s only working generator by setting it on fire and killed 12 people with indiscriminate shelling of the first, second and third floors of the building.

    “Before we were evacuated, the attacks got worse and worse, hour by hour,” said Haq, who was unable to communicate for several weeks until his evacuation to Khan Younis.

    “I saw it with my own eyes. There were three large tanks around 50 metres [54 yards] from the Indonesian Hospital building and they fired periodically at the hospital, which was devastating. Now the Indonesian Hospital has been completely taken over by the Israeli army,” he said.


  • Le double massacre de la famille Batniji – Aurdip

    L’artiste Taysir Batniji, originaire de Gaza, a publié deux postes sur sa page FB, hier et avant hier, sur deux massacres qui ont frappé sa famille à Gaza.

    Poste du 24 novembre

    Quand nous étions petits, ma sœur Hanane et moi, ma mère nous envoyait porter le déjeuner à mon père dans sa boutique de tissus en face de la vieille bâtisse de la municipalité. Hanane avait trois ans de plus que moi. En chemin, je contemplais toujours les vitrines des magasins de chaque côté de la rue. J’étais fasciné. Un jour, j’ai tellement traîné que je me suis perdu. Ma sœur s’est mise à pleurer. Le déjeuner a eu le temps de refroidir avant qu’elle me retrouve et que nous reprenions notre chemin jusqu’à la boutique.

    Les vitrines de Gaza arboraient toutes sortes de marchandises, tissus, parfums, montres, bijoux… Mais en ce temps-là, ce qui m’attirait le plus, c’étaient les enseignes des magasins, avec leurs noms joliment calligraphiés à la main en lettres arabes, et accompagnés de dessins réalistes de mariés, de montres, de bijoux, et parfois d’avions, quand il s’agissait d’une agence de voyages. Gaza – et surtout la rue Omar el-Mokhtar – fut le premier musée qu’il me fut donné de visiter. Je ne savais pas encore que ce qu’on appelle l’art existait, ni que peut-être j’avais quelque “talent”.

    Tu es partie, ma sœur, tu m’as laissé perdu dans les rues de Gaza, qui ont disparu de la carte. Salue bien ma mère et dis à mon père que le déjeuner arrivera sans doute avec un peu de retard…

    The confession, discovered by The Electronic Intifada, is one of the highest level confirmations to date that Israel killed many, if not most, of the civilians that died during the Palestinian offensive.

    On Saturday, it was revealed that an official Israel source had concluded for the first time that Israeli fire hit at least some Israelis.

    This growing body of evidence undermines the official Israeli narrative of savage Palestinian terrorists invading Israel bent on slaughtering civilians. Hamas maintains that its targets were military and that it did not intentionally kill civilians. (...)

  • La fureur moralisatrice de la gauche israélienne
    Par Ilan Pappe | 16 novembre 2023 – The Palestine Chronicle – Traduction : Chronique de Palestine – Chris et Dine


    (...) La gauche sioniste en Israël est dans les limbes.

    D’une part, elle est ostracisée par la société juive qui, au mieux la considère naïve et, au pire, l’accuse de trahison. Ceci en réaction à leur soutien à la solution à deux États et à l’appel à mettre fin à l’occupation. Bien sûr, cette aliénation est encore plus aiguë depuis les événements du 7 octobre.

    D’autre part, elle n’est pas considérée, à juste titre, comme une véritable alliée de la lutte de libération palestinienne.

    Le plus grand espoir de la gauche israélienne était que la gauche mondiale, comme elle l’appelle, partage le même vocabulaire et la même attitude à l’égard de l’opération du 7 octobre menée par le Hamas ; à savoir qu’elle soutienne Israël inconditionnellement.

    La gauche israélienne a été scandalisée par le fait que, aux yeux de la gauche mondiale, l’opération du Hamas n’exonérait pas Israël de ses politiques criminelles passées ni ne donnait le feu vert à Israël pour sa politique génocidaire en Cisjordanie et dans la bande de Gaza.

    À sa grande surprise, la gauche mondiale dans son ensemble s’est ralliée aux appels à « arrêter la guerre » et à « libérer la Palestine », plutôt que de se faire l’écho de la réponse rabâchée par les gouvernements : « Nous soutenons le droit d’Israël à se défendre ».
    Israël et le colonialisme

    Ce qui est le plus éclairant – dans le dialogue entre sionistes libéraux dans les pages de Haaretz – est leur attaque féroce contre quiconque associe le colonialisme à Israël.

    Pour une raison qui leur appartient, ils ont choisi comme principale coupable Judith Butler (ndt : philosophe universitaire, qui appelle au cessez-le-feu et s’oppose, avec d’autres intellectuels juifs américains aux actes commis par Israël avec le soutien étasunien), frustrant ainsi beaucoup d’entre nous, qui avons consacré notre carrière, probablement depuis les années soixante, à présenter le sionisme comme un colonialisme de peuplement. (...)


    • En fait, aujourd’hui, la présentation du sionisme et d’Israël comme un projet de colonisation de peuplement fait consensus parmi les principaux chercheurs sur le Moyen-Orient, et elle n’est contestée comme paradigme exact que par le courant universitaire israélien dominant.

      Aux yeux des sionistes libéraux, la gauche mondiale est coupable de deux « péchés » : d’une part, elle associe l’état israélien à une colonisation de peuplement et, d’autre part, elle fournit un contexte à l’attaque du Hamas du 7 octobre.
      Pas de juste milieu

      Cette autosatisfaction et cette fureur ne sont pas propres à la gauche sioniste. Vous l’entendrez de la part d’acteurs à Hollywood, de journalistes et d’universitaires traditionnels du Nord, qui doivent soudain prendre position : sont-ils avec le mouvement palestinien de libération ou contre lui ?

      Il n’y a plus de juste milieu. Il est impossible de soutenir l’occupant libéral, le nettoyage ethnique progressiste et le génocide de gauche.

    Video footage shows the aftermath of an attack on Kamal Adwan Hospital in the northern Gaza Strip that hit the intensive care room in the children’s department.

    Israeli forces fired “a missile or artillery shell into an intensive care room in the hospital’s children’s department, and this is the fragment of the missile”, Dr Ahmed al-Kahlot , director of Kamal Adwan Hospital, told Al Jazeera while holding up a piece of metal.

    “Israeli criminality has exceeded the limit,” said al-Kahlot.

    A clip also showed the shell penetrating the ceiling of the hospital room. It is unclear how many casualties were inflicted.

    Gilles Devers est avocat au barreau de Lyon. Il est à l’initiative d’une plainte collective contre Israël pour génocide et crimes de guerre devant la Cour Pénale Internationale. Cette institution judiciaire internationale, créée en 2002, juge les auteurs des crimes internationaux les plus graves. Cette plainte réunit plus 500 avocats français et internationaux. Elle a été déposée le jeudi 9 novembre dernier au siège de la CPI, à Haye aux Pays-Bas. Si Israël semble jouir d’une certaine impunité et échapper à la justice internationale, elle a bien ratifié la CPI et les auteurs des crimes de guerre pourraient être traduits devant les juges. Mais quant est-til du crime de génocide ? Les conditions sont-elles réunies ? Quelle est la différence avec le crime de nettoyage ethnique ? Quelles sont les prochaines étapes de cette procédure qui promet d’être longue ? La plainte a-t-elle des chances de prospérer ? Gilles Devers nous répond, sans ambage, dans cet entretien exclusif.

    EU foreign policy chief: Israel must respect international law
    Josep Borrell has called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. Here are a few of his comments:

    The war against Hamas in Gaza is the result of a general political failure of the international community.
    The European Union calls for an immediate humanitarian truce and more opportunities for aid to reach civilians in Gaza.
    There are thousands of civilian casualties in Gaza, and Israel must respect international humanitarian law.
    There is increasing settler violence and we stressed the Israeli side to control the violence in the West Bank.
    This war showed the European Union that we cannot leave the Palestinian issue without a solution.

    Les affirmations d’Israël concernant la fourniture de couveuses sont « fausses », déclare le directeur d’al-Shifa

    Le directeur de l’hôpital al-Shifa explique à Al Jazeera que les nouveau-nés ont besoin d’une attention immédiate, mais qu’il n’y a plus de fournitures médicales.

    « Parfois, nous sommes obligés de laisser les patients mourir parce que nous sommes impuissants, nous ne pouvons pas pratiquer d’opérations chirurgicales sur eux, le moins que nous puissions faire est de leur donner des analgésiques pour qu’ils puissent mourir en paix », a déclaré Muhammed Abu Salmiya.

    Il a ajouté que de nombreux nouveau-nés prématurés étaient morts parce que les couveuses manquaient d’oxygène. L’armée israélienne a déclaré en début de semaine qu’elle fournirait des couveuses à l’hôpital al-Shifa, mais Abu Salmiya affirme qu’il s’agit d’un mensonge.

    « Les forces d’occupation israéliennes prétendent avoir fourni des couveuses à l’hôpital, mais ce n’est pas vrai, c’est faux. De plus, nous n’avons pas besoin de couveuses ; nous en avons déjà à l’hôpital, mais nous manquons de carburant pour produire de l’électricité [pour les couveuses] », s’est-il écrié.

    Al-Shifa Hospital is a ‘big prison’, says director

    As Israel continues its raid of al-Shifa Hospital, the director of al-Shifa says the medical compound has become a “big prison” and a “mass grave” for all those inside.

    Muhammed Abu Salmiya tells Al Jazeera that there are 7,000 people in the hospital and staff are still working to help patients but they “lost all those who were in the intensive care unit”.

    “We are left with nothing, no power, no food, no water. with every passing minute, we are losing a life. Overnight we lost 22 persons, [and] for the past three days the hospital has been kept under siege,” Salmiya said.

    He added that they have appealed to leave the hospital but are being denied by Israeli forces.

    “It’s a war crime. A full-fledged war crime,” he said.
