Gaza: Displaced Palestinians forced to leave UNRWA schools

By Ahmed Hadi, Al-Akhbar

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) displaced Gazan refugees again when it asked them to leave its schools serving as shelters in al-Maghazi refugee camp to a nearby camp after informing them that their lives were at risk. 

A woman in her 40s told Al-Akhbar: “The UN staff told us that our lives are in danger and we have to leave right away. We were shell-shocked because we were in the street again and did not know where to go.”

Meanwhile, Ban Ki-moon offers “condolences” to Israel…

Fidel Castro: Ukraine's Astonishing Provocation

By Fidel Castro Ruz

This morning’s (Thursday) news was saturated with the astonishing bulletin that a Malaysia Airlines plane had been hit while flying at 10,100 meters high over the territory of the Ukraine on the path under control of the warmongering government of the chocolate king, Petro Poroshenko.

Cuba, which was always supportive of the people of Ukraine, and in the difficult days of the tragedy of Chernobyl attended the health of many children affected by harmful radiation from the accident and will always be prepared to continue such aid, cannot fail to express its rejection by the action of such an anti-Russian, anti-Ukrainian, pro-imperialist government.

In turn, coinciding with the crime of the Malaysia plane, the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, leader of a nuclear state, ordered his army to invade the Gaza Strip, where in the preceding days hundreds of Palestinians had died, many of them children. The U.S. president supported the action, calling the heinous crime as an act of self-defense. Obama did not support David against Goliath, but Goliath against David.

As is known, young Israeli men and women, well prepared for productive work, will be exposed to die without honor or glory. I do not know what military doctrine the Palestinians will use, but I know a fighter ready to die can defend even the ruins of a building as long as he has a rifle, as demonstrated by the heroic defenders of Stalingrad [in World War II].

I only wish to express my solidarity with this heroic people defending the last inch of what was their homeland for thousands of years.

We are all focused on the racist genocide against Palestine, and rightly so. But listen to this warning from Comrade Fidel Castro about the dangerous provocation by the Kiev junta and its US masters. Fidel doesn’t often intervene publicly these days; when he does we should take it seriously. We may need to be out in the streets on this crisis tomorrow. - redguard

PFLP: We reject so-called ceasefire proposal; Resistance is shaking strongest military in region

Comrade Hani Thawabteh, member of the Central Committee of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, said that the so-called ceasefire proposal is a new attempt to chain the Palestinian resistance, and that the response of the resistance to this initiative will come through targeting Zionist settlements and sites.

The Arab regimes and “international community” are co-conspirators in the Zionist aggression on Gaza, said Thawabteh. Thawabteh noted that the so-called ceasefire initiative excludes the needs of the Palestinian people, and guarantees no “calm” from the ongoing attacks by settlers in the West Bank and Jerusalem and the ongoing Zionist attacks of all forms against our people everywhere.

In an interview with Al-Quds TV, Thawabteh said that the Palestinian resistance was able to record real advances in their response to the Zionist assault on Gaza, forming a dilemma for the Zionist enemy which seeks to grasp at an initiative for “calm.” The occupation state launched a war against civilians in full view of the people of the world, said Thawabteh, and meanwhile the resistance proved its readiness through tactics presented by the resistance in the field, and despite its modest resources, it has shaken the strongest military arsenal in the Middle East.

Responding to the threats of occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to continue and escalate their assault in the event of non-compliance with the so-called ceasefire, Thawabteh said that “the Palestinian people have the will and determination to continue their struggle until the last drop of blood. Zionist threats have been continuous since the first Zionist assault on Gaza.” He warned that any ground invasion and war will become a cemetery for the soldiers of the occupation, and that the enemy understands that such a ground invasion will be very costly.

Four children were among several killed in new Israeli air, naval and tank strikes in Gaza on Wednesday, medics said, bringing the death toll from Israel’s assault in the besieged Palestinian territory to 213.

In the latest attack, four children were on a beach when Israel shelled them from the sea, emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said, with several injured children taking refuge at a nearby hotel where journalists were staying.

Qudra added that the four boys - two aged 10 and the others 9 and 11 - were from one family. Another child was critically wounded during the beach attack.
