  • Turkey claims it is under “blockade” in Mediterranean standoff

    Turkey claims it is “breaking a blockade” by sending naval ships under the guise of a research mission to the Mediterranean. For a country that is a member of NATO – and which has sent drones to Libya, is busy bombing northern Iraq and occupies part of northern Syria – Turkey’s narrative that it is under “blockade” is a novel approach to fan its latest maneuvers in the Mediterranean. Never in history has Turkey been less under blockade than it is today, yet it has manufactured a crisis with Greece to lay claim to areas of the Mediterranean, asserting it...

    Blaming the Beirut Blast on Israel AUG 12, 2020 10:00 AM BY HUGH FITZGERALD While there is near-universal agreement in Lebanon that the blast in Beirut was the result of a fire that caused 2,750 tones of ammonium nitrate — that had been carelessly stored in Hanger 12 at the Port of Beirut for six years — to explode, there are still those brazenly promoting the story that Israel must have somehow been responsible, that it must have been an Israeli rocket that started the fire that caused the blast. The Lebanese Defense Officials have quashed that story; they have...
  • Questioning whether Hezbollah had a role in massive Beirut explosion is off limits, per Hezbollah

    Mordecai Kedar of Israel’s Besa Center opines: With all due respect to the Lebanese authorities, I do not buy this story. I believe that explosives, ammunition, and missile fuel.... were stored by Hezbollah in this warehouse after being shipped from Iran. There are several reasons why I believe this. There was a series of at least three explosions, each of which had a different result. The first created a gray column of smoke that remained for several minutes. The second, a column of red smoke, also remained for several minutes, while the third created a white mushroom cloud that dissipated...
  • Were suspicious tunnels near Beirut Port discovered after blast?

    08/11/2020 11:31:50 AM PDT · by SunkenCiv · 19 replies
    The Jerusalem Post ^ | August 11, 2020 | Seth J. Frantzman
    Videos circulating online, as well as rumors and reports, indicate that "tunnels" have been found in the wake of the Beirut explosions. Some have asserted that this is evidence of Hezbollah "tunnels" storing weapons at the Port of Beirut, while others think they were used for human trafficking. Both SkyNews and Russia's Sputnik News claimed there was a "labyrinth network of tunnels." The Lebanese Armed Forces have denied the existence of tunnels, just as Hezbollah has denied doing anything at Beirut Port. It's unclear how the army could refute the claims without investigating the images and videos already circulating online....

    The Jewish people have the absolute historic legal right to this disputed land. I know that there is a lot of information available to the observers of the historical perspectives, and as I am sure that many of you know, much of it is based on disinformation and on outright lies. Therefore, in order to be able to promote honorable causes it is important to clarify the facts.   Before addressing a few issues specifically, I would like to make some very important clarifying points:   1.     The state of Israel is one of the strongest and most reliable allies of...

    “See you tomorrow, promise to be a good boy,” were the last words addressed in 1942 to a six-year-old by his mother when she dropped him off at his kindergarten in Amsterdam. She was arrested a few hours later by the SS, deported together with her husband, sent by train to concentration camps, and murdered in Auschwitz. She was one of the 107,000 Jews who were victims of the Holocaust in the Netherlands in which the head of the occupying regime, Austrian Nazi Arthur Seyss-Inquart, instituted a reign of terror. Civilians were subjected to forced labor in Germany as well...

    The Trump administration waded even deeper into the Libya conflict this week, backing UN calls for a cease-fire amid the many factions, and signaling again that the country's oil fields are off limits to those seeking to profit on the war. The US initiative is well timed, with signs of an escalation of fighting between the Libyan Government of National Accord, which is recognized by the UN and backed by Turkey, and the insurgent forces of former general Khalifa Hifter, who has the support of Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Russia and France. Libya's also become the world's most dangerous...

  • 'France will never let Lebanon go': Emmanuel Macron is accused of trying to reconquer Lebanon rather than help it in the wake of the devastating explosion at its capital which has killed 150 as country is set to refuse aid from Israel

    French president Emmanuel Macron has been accused of trying to reconquer Lebanon rather than help it in the wake of the devastating explosion at its capital which killed 150 people. It comes as the country is expected to refuse humanitarian aid from Israel because the two neighbours are technically still at war. Visiting explosion-ravaged Beirut this week, France's leader comforted distraught crowds, promised to rebuild the city and claimed that the blast pierced France's own heart.

    IDF fighter jets attacked a Hamas underground infrastructure in the northern Gaza Strip late Thursday, the IDF Spokesperson confirmed. The attack was in response to several explosive balloon attacks from Gaza to Israeli territory during the day. Earlier on Thursday, after nearly six months without incendiary balloons, five fires broke out in the Gaza border communities. At least three of them were caused by incendiary balloons. Furthermore, a balloon carrying an explosive device was found in the Arad industrial zone. "The State of Israel will not accept any violation of sovereignty and harm to the residents of the south," said...

    China is helping Saudi Arabia develop its nuclear facilities amid fears recent advances are a sign that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's chilling threat that the kingdom could develop nuclear weapons might become true. The Wall Street Journal reported this week that China is working on the development of a facility in Saudi Arabia that could extract uranium yellowcake from uranium ore, a huge shift in Riyadh's well-publicised civilian nuclear programme. In a highly enriched state, Yellowcake can be used in the development of nuclear weapons. The facility is believed to be located near the northwest Saudi city of Ula...

    Efforts to slash U.S. funding to Iranian terror group blocked by House Dems Just days before the Iranian-funded terror group Hezbollah waged a terrorist attack on Israel’s northern border, congressional Democrats gutted legislation that would have halted U.S. funding to the Lebanese military, which is almost entirely controlled by the terror group. Congress has been working on legislation that would slash millions in American taxpayer funding to the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF), which has long been under Hezbollah’s thumb. Republican lawmakers in both the House and Senate have been pushing to cut this funding for some time, arguing that U.S....

"We will do what is necessary in order to defend ourselves. I suggest to all of them, including Hezbollah, to consider this. These are not vain words; they have the weight of the State of Israel and the IDF behind them and this should be taken seriously.” Netanyahu had just completed a tour of the IDF Home Front Command headquarters in Ramla...

    At least 70 people have now been confirmed to have been killed, with over 3,700 injured as the casualty toll continues to mount from the massive explosions that rocked Lebanon’s capital of Beirut on Tuesday. The explosions took place at the city’s shipping port, and the cause is still under investigation. Many residents with views of the port began using their cell phone to take video of a massive smoke plume that was being caused by hundreds of smaller explosions coming from a warehouse along the docks. Videographers miles away were then rocked when a massive explosion devastated the area...

    SPAIN'S former King Juan Carlos I has fled the country after becoming embroiled in a corruption scandal. The ex-head of state, 82, made the announcement in a letter to his son Felipe, the current king, amid an investigation by the Spanish Supreme Court into his alleged dealings in Saudi Arabia. It is an embarrassing exit for the monarch who reigned for almost 40 years until 2014, when he voluntarily handed over the reins to King Felipe.
