UNRWA Chutzpa

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Unbelievable.

In yesterday’s report by the UN Board of Inquiry, UN Secretery General Ban Ki Moon admitted that Hamas terrorists were storing weapons in 3 UN schools, and fired from at least two of them, confirming IDF claims and photos that Gazan (Hamas) terrorists were attacking Israel from within the schools.

UN Report on Mortar

 

Weapons discovered in UN schools in Gaza

Weapons discovered in UN schools in Gaza

 

UNRWA had the gall to tweet the following:

UNRWA ‏@UNRWA SG #GazaInquiry found no evidence that any rockets had been found in our schools. Weaponry was discovered, not rockets.

As NGO Monitor points out:

So @UNRWA is crowing that “rockets” were not found in one of its schools but that mortars and launchers were?

In July, UNRWA claimed, 3 times, that rockets were found in UNRWA schools — on their own website!

Example #1

Yesterday, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered approximately 20 rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip. UNRWA strongly condemns the group or groups responsible for placing the weapons in one of its installations.

Example #2

Today, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip. As soon as the rockets were discovered, UNRWA staff were withdrawn from the premises, and so we are unable to confirm the precise number of rockets.

So… as long as “only” mortars and not rockets were involved, it’s all good.

Terrorists Targeting Border Police

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

2014 and 2015 witnessed an unusually large number of terror attacks directed at Border Policemen and Policewomen, as well as police SWAT and undercover units.

According to a new Walla! report, there were 995 attacks during this period. 70% of these attacks happened during “peacetime” periods, while 30% happened during Operation Protective Edge.

The Border Police, nicknamed “Magav” in Hebrew which is short for “Mishmar HaGvul”, are officially a division of the police department, but they started off as an IDF unit in 1949, protecting and policing the frontier. IDF conscripts can elect to serve in the Border Police for their army service.

Border Policemen primarily work in Jerusalem, and in front-line friction locations in Judea and Samaria. They work together with both regular police officers and IDF soldiers.

Their deployment locations account for why they are easily accessible targets, though not why there have been so many attacks.

Border Police commander Amos Jacob said in response to the disconcerting data, that the large number of terror incidents against the Magav, shows that the Border Police are at the forefront of protecting Israeli citizens and saving lives from terror attacks.

He added that the Border Police are given complex and sensitive tasks in the most dangerous and volatile locations in the country, and that the Border Police are proving again and again that they can be relied upon.

Sources: Al Qaeda Bombed Hezbollah and Framed Israel

Monday, April 27th, 2015

Israeli media have quoted “reliable sources.” probably Israeli officials, that Al Qaeda-linked rebels and not the Israel Air Force bombed Hezbollah targets early this morning.

Several Hezbollah fighters in Syria were killed in the attack near the Lebanese border, according to the Qatari-based Al-Jazeera, which said the IAF was behind the attack.

A Syrian army base, where long-range missiles are kept, reportedly was bombed.

The Israeli sources said that the Al Nusra front, affiliated with Al Qaeda, was behind Monday morning’s attack and took advantage of Israel’s killing four Hezbollah terrorists last night as they were planting a bomb along the border with Israel at the Golan Heights. A Hareidi unit spotted the terrorists.

Arab media quickly picked up the thread Monday morning, connected the dots and concluded that the bombing was a continuation of Israel’s reported strikes on Friday and last Wednesday  deep inside Syria.

Sources said Al Nusra is trying to force Hezbollah back into Lebanon. Hezbollah is fighting with forces loyal to the Assad regime and against rebels and a host of terrorist organizations that include Al Nusra. The elephant on the war front is the Islamic State (ISIS), which controls a large part of the war-torn country.

Israel consistently does not confirm or deny reports of strikes in Lebanon, Syria and other terror-based countries. The possibility remains that the Israeli Air Force indeed bombed Hezbollah again but wants to avoid appearing too offensive in the eyes of Iran and Russia, which has agreed to ship to Iran the advanced S-300 anti-missile system.

 

Reports: IAF Strikes Syrian/Hezbollah Targets Overnight

Monday, April 27th, 2015

Please see this article for an update on who bombed the sites.

Arab sources are reporting that the Israeli Air Force struck Assad’s and Hezbollah positions in Qalamoun, Syria around 2 AM Monday morning.

The Arab sources claim that Israel hit a Scud missile storage site and injured a number of soldiers from the 155 Syrian division in three sorties. Al-Arabiya claims that 30 Syrian soldiers were killed. There is no official response from Syria or Hezbollah.

The attack came hours after Israel killed four Syrians who were planting a bomb on the Golan Heights along the Israeli side of the Israel-Syrian border.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claims the four planting the bomb on Sunday evening were Syrian soldiers.

Israel has launched a number of airstrikes in Syria lately, as Syria, though primarily Hezbollah and Iran, attempt to use the chaos and civil war in Syria to establish a new front against Israel on top of the Golan Heights. This would be the third Israeli IAF attack in two days.

In part, Israel is sending a message to Russia and Iran that they will destroy any missile systems, and in particular, the S300 missile system, that are transferred into Syria or Lebanon.

Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said on Sunday night that Iran is trying to transfer sophisticated weapon systems to Hezbollah, and Israel will not let that happen, anywhere or anytime. He said Hezbollah is trying to establish a terror infrastructure along Israel’s border with Syria.

On Israel’s Independence Day, one of the Free Syrian Army groups sent a letter to Israel wishing Israel a happy Independence Day. The letter stated they look forward to peace with Israel and the opening of the Israeli Embassy in Damascus.

The 4 terrorists were spotted trying to plant explosives along the border with Israel, near Majdal Shams.

IAF Airlift to Arrive Overnight with Rescued Israelis from Nepal

Sunday, April 26th, 2015

The first contingent of Israelis are to arrive home Monday after being rescued from the heights of the Himalayas in Nepal after a deadly earthquake tore apart the region.

The Israeli Air Force plane is also carrying three newbies, premature babies born amidst the temblors. It’s expected to arrive at 1:00 a.m. Monday.

The IDF general staff said Sunday that its rescue mission to Nepal was delayed by 12 hours due to the condition of the landing strip at Kathmandu.

Although the mission was originally set to depart from Israel at 10:00 pm local time, it was not clear whether the IAF would stick to the schedule> The IDF also said a great deal of discussion was taking place over which type of planes could be used given current conditions on the ground.

The Israeli Embassy in Kathmandu was also slightly damaged due to the earthquakes. The first, a 7.9-magnitude quake, did the most damage to the area. But that was followed within just a few hours by an aftershock that was nearly as devastating, registering at 6.7-magnitude on the Richter scale.

Both caused damage – and fatalities – as far away as India and China. In Nepal, the death toll thus far has risen to nearly 2,500 and almost twice as many injured.

More than four hundred Israelis were known to be traveling near Kathmandu at the time of the quakes. Most have been tracked down or checked in on their own, but 150 Israelis are still out of touch with their families and authorities.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry is coordinating its efforts with the Kathmandu Chabad House, where volunteers have transformed the building into a local crisis management and refugee center for the time being.

Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries Rabbi Chezki Lifshitz and his wife Chani are urging Israelis throughout Nepal via their Facebook pages and other social media not to sleep indoors tonight (Sunday, April 26, 2015), saying the area is still unstable, and that doing so would be “unsafe.”
