    Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who sought the Democratic presidential nomination in the 2016 election but lost out to Hillary Clinton, on Monday criticized Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his policies. "As someone who believes absolutely and unequivocally in Israel's right to exist... we must say loudly and clearly, that to oppose the reactionary policies of Prime Minister Netanyahu does not make us anti-Israel," Sanders told the annual conference of the J Street organization. He took issue with Israel’s response to the recent riots along the border with Gaza, claiming Israel "massively overreacted" to the protests. "The presence of Hamas members...

    The International Criminal Court at The Hague may prosecute Israel over the deaths of Arab rioters who clashed with IDF forces on the Gaza-Israel frontier over the past week and a half, a top ICC official warned Sunday. Chief Prosecutor for the ICC Fatou Bensouda issued a statement Sunday demanding an end to the use of violence on the border between Israel and Gaza, and suggested that both Israel and the Hamas terror organization could be held responsible for the deaths of some 30 Arab rioters and terrorists killed since activists launched six weeks of violent protests on the frontier...

    JTA - Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders criticized Israel’s use of force on the border with Gaza in a tweet. “The killing of Palestinian demonstrators by Israeli forces in Gaza is tragic.

The tweet garnered 26,000 likes. He also tweeted: “Meanwhile, the situation in Gaza remains a humanitarian disaster. The U.S. must play a...

    Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=26&v=qgdxnFizHpE A seven-year-old girl was sent by Hamas into Israel, to face the IDF forces stationed along the border fence with Gaza. The IDF confirmed that the suspected terrorist was a young girl, received her, and ensured that she returned safely to her parents. "The Hamas terror organization cynically uses women and children, sending them to the border and endangering their lives," an IDF spokesman said. Approximately 17,000 Gazans are protesting in five locations along the Gaza-Israel border. The protest is part of the planned "march of return," and participants are burning tires, and throwing firebombs and stones at...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu hit back at Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Sunday evening, after the Turkish leader accused Netanyahu of being a ‘terrorist’, and described Israel as a ‘terror state’. Earlier on Sunday, Erdogan gave a televised speech in southern Turkey, during which he denounced Israel for its response to a Hamas-led provocation on the Israel-Gaza border on Friday. "Hey Netanyahu! You are occupier. And it is as an occupier that are you are on those lands. At the same time, you are a terrorist," Erdogan said in a televised speech in Adana, southern Turkey, AFP reported. During his...

    United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday called for an "independent and transparent investigation" after 16 Gazans were killed and hundreds more wounded during clashes with the Israeli military, a spokesman said. The IDF has confirmed that at least ten of the 16 were terrorists. Guterres' call came as the UN Security Council heard fears of a further escalation in the violence in the Gaza during emergency talks. "The Secretary-General calls for an independent and transparent investigation into these incidents," said a statement by Guterres' deputy spokesman Farhan Haq, which also reaffirmed "the readiness" of the world body to...

    Thousands of Gazans are planning to march towards Israel in what has been dubbed the “March of the Return” to begin on March 30. Ahmad al-Mudallal, a senior member of the Islamic Jihad terrorist group, described the demonstrations as a popular "referendum" that will demonstrate the adherence of the "Palestinian people" to the “right of return” and the resistance to the "plots" against the Palestinians. In an interview with the Hamas newspaper Felesteen, Mudallal said that the “Palestinian people” will go out to the borders and from there send a message to the world about the need to lift the...
  • IDF concerned as Gazans establish tent cities on Israeli border

    Hundreds of tents are to be erected near the Gaza-Israel border for a six-week protest, officials said Thursday, in what may stir fresh tensions with Israeli forces. Gaza families are to set up hundreds of tents -- possibly thousands - for the protests running from March 30 to May 15, organizers said. Protesters plan to call for the granting of a right of return for millions of so-called “Palestinian refugees” across the Middle East. Organizers said the families could stay in the tents for prolonged periods, with youth and community activities planned. The demonstration has the backing of all political...

    The sole electricity plant in the Gaza Strip stopped working Thursday because of a lack of fuel, officials said, as concerns grew over worsening humanitarian conditions in the Hamas-controlled area. The closure of the plant, which normally provides around a fifth of Gaza's electricity, will exacerbate an already critical power shortage. Gaza's two million residents receive only around four hours of mains electricity a day, a situation for which they blame Hamas and the Palestinian Authority. Hamas leaders enjoy electricity 24 hours a day. However, they refuse to invest international aid monies in infrastructure for Gaza's residents, preferring instead to...

    Former IDF Southern Command Commander Yom Tov Samia rejected the claims that Israel has placed a siege on Gaza. In an interview with Channel 10's "Orly and Guy" program, Samia acknowledged that the situation in Gaza is critical, but said that the area's Hamas leadership are responsible. Hamas receives 650 truckloads of equipment a day, but instead of giving these to the residents, Hamas uses the merchandise for itself, selling it at outrageous prices or using the materials in order to dig terror tunnels. The Hamas terror organization which rules Gaza has firmly rejected the Palestinian Authority's (PA) demand that...

    UN Middle East envoy Nickolay Mladenov warned on Tuesday that Hamas-controlled Gaza on the verge of "full collapse", AFP reported. According to Mladenov, a key to saving Gaza from disaster was restoring the government of Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas to power there, a decade after it was forced out by Hamas in a bloody coup. "Without that Gaza risks exploding in our face again, this time in a far more deadly and violent manner than in the past," Mladenov was quoted as having said at the annual conference of Israel's Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv....

    A Gaza man who was granted entry into Israel to take his young daughter to treatment at a Jerusalem hospital abandoned her during their stay and attempted to remain in Israel illegally. Israel regularly issues entry permits to Arab residents of the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip for “humanitarian reasons” – a blanket term which covers, among other things, a wide range of medical treatment. ..... Earlier this week, one man took advantage of an entry permit he received and attempted to avoid returning to Gaza, in a bid to remain in the country illegally. In the process, he abandoned his seven-year-old...

    The Israel Defense Forces on Sunday said it had destroyed a border-crossing Hamas attack tunnel, the third in recent months, that penetrated hundreds of meters into both Israeli and Egyptian territory from the Gaza Strip, in an airstrike on Saturday night. “We completed the destruction of a third terror tunnel,” spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus told reporters early Sunday morning, denying claims made by Hamas that it was a smuggling tunnel. The tunnel, which was constructed differently from most tunnels in Gaza, began in the city of Rafah and crossed into Israel under the Kerem Shalom Crossing, through which hundreds...

    One of the Hamas terrorist organization’s most senior members is in critical condition Tuesday, after he apparently shot himself in the head in an accidental shooting. Fawzy Barhoum, spokesman for the Gaza-based Islamist terror group, said Tuesday afternoon that Imad al-Alami, one of the movement’s most senior officials, was critically wounded when his personal firearm accidentally discharged. Al-Alami, 61, was "inspecting his personal weapon in his home and is in critical condition,” said Barhoum. The Hamas leader was evacuated to a Gaza City hospital. Outlawed by the US in 2003 for his position in Hamas, al-Alami is considered one of...

    A rocket fired from Gaza on Friday evening towards southern Israel missed its mark and fell on the Beit Hanoun home of a Gaza terrorist. The terrorist is the brother of Hamas spokesman Mushir al-Masri. On Friday, Israel’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, Major General Yoav Mordechai wrote on his Facebook page, "A rocket fired a short time ago from Gaza towards Israel harmed a residential building in Beit Hanoun. Once again, the terrorist organizations launch rockets at the residents of Gaza themselves." "The terror operatives in Gaza are proving in an unambiguous fashion what we continuously stress:...

    Khaled Al-Batash, one of the senior leaders of the Islamic Jihad terrorist group in Gaza, reiterated on Saturday that the organization is determined to retaliate for Israel blowing up a terror tunnel which led from Gaza into Israel, resulting in the deaths of 17 terrorists, most of them members of the Islamic Jihad. The bodies of 12 of the terrorists were recovered by the Palestinian Authority (PA), while Israel recovered and is holding the bodies of the remaining five. In an interview with the Palestinian Arab Quds Press news agency, Batash said, "We are not discussing with anyone our right...
