Israeli Forces Kill Palestinian Nurse, Injure 100 Protesters

SNIPPET:

Ma’an News Agency reports:

Israeli forces shot and killed a 21-year-old Palestinian woman paramedic on Friday, as she was treating injured protesters during ongoing demonstrations along the Gaza border with Israel, in the southern Gaza Strip. The Gaza Ministry of Health reported that 21-year-old Razan Ashraf al-Najjar, from the Khan Younis-area town of Khuzaa, was shot in the stomach as Israeli forces deployed near the border fence opened fire on a group of five paramedics, including al-Najjar, as they were aiding injured protesters near the fence. The spokesperson of the ministry, Ashraf al-Qidra, added that more than 100 protesters were injured on Friday, 40 of them with live ammunition, while the others suffered from tear-gas related injuries.

Al-Najjar was one of at least two medics who had been killed by Israeli forces since the “Great March of Return” began in Gaza on March 30th. Since then, over 110 more Palestinians have been killed, including journalists and children.

Cousin of Palestinian Medic Killed by Israel👹 Speaks Out

June 5, 2018

Palestinian nurse Razan al-Najar was shot and killed by an Israeli sniper in Gaza while she was wearing a white medic’s uniform and had her hands raised. Dalia al-Najjar says her cousin “Razan showed everyone what it is to want freedom.” She tells TRNN’s Ben Norton, “Everyone is joining the protests because people want their freedom, and it’s a legitimate right for them to ask for it.”

What is Gaza Unlocked?

For over a decade, two million Palestinians in Gaza have lived under a brutal military blockade imposed by Israel.

Media stories about Gaza primarily focus on violence and politics, while stories of how the blockade impacts everyday life remain largely untold.

Gaza Unlocked gives you access to first-hand accounts from Palestinians living in Gaza, information about the blockade, and opportunities to make a difference. Learn more.


Ezz Al Zanoon, 24 FREELANCE PHOTOGRAPHER

Learn about the blockade’s impact on: EMPLOYMENT MOVEMENT

I am a photographer. I see with my eyes, but I also speak by using my eyes. Now when I take photos I feel a need to change the landscape. I am tired of always seeing the same thing, but I can’t move or change the landscape. I do not know where to go to look for another landscape to capture.

The place we live in is small, extending only 40 kilometers in length. If you try to move beyond the horizon, you run into a wall, a tank, a plane, or a military ship that belongs to the occupation. You can drive from the top of Gaza to its bottom in one hour. If you reach the eastern or northern borders, you see a wall. If you come near that border, the Israeli soldiers there will shoot you immediately. The border with Egypt is also closed.

Each person deals with the situation in their own way. Me, I refuse to accept the blockade. What does it even mean to accept the blockade? How can I continue to live normally despite the blockade? I wake up every morning rejecting the reality that constrains me, that constrains my people, that constrains our ideas and our futures. We are under siege in a large prison. We are given food to eat, but it is like being fed in a zoo. We are kept alive and people – politicians and journalists – visit to have a look. But we stay in our cage.

Residents of Gaza are indiscriminately prohibited from traveling or moving to the West Bank, and West Bank residents are banned from entering or moving to Gaza—a violation of the Oslo Accords.

We reject the images of us that are being shown the world. We are humans. We are proud of our humanity. We are proud of our achievements despite the difficult circumstances. No one can achieve what we have done. Despite the blockade, the wars, and the structured destructions, we continue to live and fight for a dignified life. We fight against the imposed restrictions, being triggered by our desire for life.

We have a passion to meet our people in the West Bank, Gaza, and Palestinians inside Israel  but the occupation cuts the relationship between human beings. Israel fights us by fragmenting us, cutting the relations between one human and another.

Human nature cannot tolerate imprisonment because people are born to be free. When you imprison me, I will still find a place where I can express myself. I will find an exit and use it. You, as an occupier, cannot forbid me to do this.

As long as my brain functions, where I can think and analyze things, where I can create and do what I want. I can express my ideas. As an artist, I can express many things. I can reject what I don’t want both locally and from the occupation. I will defy the difficult circumstances here through my will to live. I will photograph life and publish these photos and give the chance to whoever wants to see to learn about life in Gaza. I will publish the reality that exists far from the media spotlight. I will use social media campaigns to reach out to people.  I will break the blockade, and I will live.

So, Italy turned this ship back to Malta, which now has also refused to let it dock and release its 600 plus refugees. They've got 1300 miles to go to reach Spain, which has decided to offer to take them.  That's a week's voyage, and they have enough food and water  for one day. Refugees don't want to go to Spain, because they know there's a lot more austerity there. The refugees who do land there typically try like hell to get to just about anywhere else in Europe as fast as they can......but Spain is better than dying on a tramp steamer deck in the Mediterranean's summer heat.

It's pretty much a given not all 629 of these poor people will make it out of this alive.


https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-06-11/spain-accept-refugee-boat-blocked-italy

This vessel is owned and operated by a couple of humanitarian NGO's who use it to rescue stranded refugees from their rafts. It looks like this might be a record for them, as far as bodies onboard. I'm not sure if they have any kind of way of getting more food and water for the unfortunates now in their care.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aquarius_(NGO_ship)

Thank you for posting this. There is too much going on out there that the propaganda infested press refuses to make public.

Yemen used to be famous for its exquisitely fine tasting bee honey. That's nostalgic history now.

At this moment over 18 MILLION people in Yemen are being slowly and deliberately (the Saudis make no secret of said "policy" ☠️) starved to death.

We are helping.  :(

With Explicit US 🦀 Backing, Saudi 👹 Attack on Yemen’s Humanitarian Lifeline Begins ☠️ 😱

SNIPPET:

ith a “green light” from the Trump administration and essential military support from the US government, Saudi-led forces plowed ahead with an assault on the Yemeni port city of Hodeida on Wednesday, brushing aside dire warnings from international humanitarian organizations and a small group of American lawmakers that an attack on the key aid harbor could spark a full-blown famine and endanger millions of lives.

Responding to the early stages of the attack—which began with an estimated 30 Saudi airstrikes within half an hour, guided by US military intelligence—Win Without War wrote on Twitter that the attack is “a dark moment of shame for the United States. We could have stopped this.”

Hodeidah is currently home to around 600,000 civilians, and around 80 percent of all humanitarian aid that flows into Yemen arrives at the city’s port, which is currently controlled by Houthi rebels. International observers have warned that a military fight over the port city could halt life-saving food and medicine and cause the starvation of millions.

“Some civilians are entrapped, others forced from their homes,” Jolien Veldwijk—acting country director for the humanitarian group CARE, which is still operating in Yemen—told Reuters on Wednesday as the US-backed Saudi assault on Hodeida began. “We thought it could not get any worse, but unfortunately we were wrong.”

US Congressmembers: Stop ‘Famine-Triggering Attack’ on Yemen’s Port City Hodeida, Which Could Starve Millions

By: Ben Norton | June 13, 2018

Lawmakers from both major parties have published a letter calling on the U.S. government to withdraw support for a military attack on Yemen’s port city of Hodeida, which would almost certainly unleash a humanitarian disaster that could starve millions of people.

The letter — which follows in full below — was signed by prominent Democratic and Republican congressmen, and is directly addressed to Secretary of Defense James Mattis.

With blessings from the United States, military forces led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates launched an attack on Wednesday, June 13 on Hodeida, the site where some 80 percent of humanitarian aid enters Yemen, the poorest country in the Middle East.

The U.S. military is providing intelligence assistance to the Saudi- and Emirati-led forces in the battle. The U.S. has played a key role in the war in Yemen, since Saudi Arabia first launched its bombardment campaign in March 2015, selling the Gulf monarchy billions of dollars in weapons and providing in-air refueling and intelligence support.

The United Nations and humanitarian organizations vociferously spoke out against the assault on Hodeida, warning it could push Yemen over the brink into famine. A staggering 8.4 million Yemenis are already on the verge of starvation, and 10 million more could face starvation by the end of 2018.

Another 250,000 Yemenis are also in danger of losing their lives from the brutal fighting. The United Nations humanitarian coordinator in Yemen, Lise Grande, warned, “A military attack or siege on Hodeidah will impact hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians.”

“In a prolonged worst case, we fear that as many as 250,000 people may lose everything — even their lives,” Grande added.

The New York Times reported, citing diplomats who were involved in negotiations to try to stop the attack on Hodeida, that “the Emiratis, who are leading the push for an attack, are looking to launch their planned assault while Washington’s attention is focused this week on the summit meeting between President Trump and the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un.”

U.S.-backed Saudi bombing has already killed thousands of Yemeni civilians and unleashed the largest humanitarian catastrophe in the world. More than 100,000 Yemeni children have died from preventable causes — with a new death every 10 minutes.

The U.S.-Saudi coalition has repeatedly bombed civilian areas, including a newly constructed cholera treatment center on Monday, June 11.

The letter campaign was led by Wisconsin Democratic Representative Mark Pocan, who wrote, “The Saudi and Emirati assault on Yemen’s major port, with US logistical aid, could threaten 250,000 lives and force millions more to starve to death.”
Quote

“Democrats AND Republicans are demanding the Pentagon to stop the operation and disclose unauthorized US participation this war,” Pocan said.

Rep. Pocan is the co-chair of the House Progressive Caucus. The letter was also signed by Michigan Republican Justin Amash, a self-described libertarian who chairs the House Liberty Caucus.

Happy to join @repmarkpocan on this letter. We must reclaim congressional war powers and stop these endless wars. https://t.co/2Yr6mRiHx2

— Justin Amash (@justinamash) June 13, 2018

The other signatories on the letter were Ro Khanna (D-CA), Thomas Massie (R-KY), Barbara Lee (D-CA), Walter Jones (R-NC), and Ted Lieu (D-CA).

The full text of the U.S. congressmen’s letter to Secretary of Defense Mattis follows below:


Urgent bipartisan call to Sec. Mattis to avert famine-triggering attack on Yemen’s major port and disclose full U.S. role in Saudi-led war

Dear Secretary Mattis:

As members of Congress closely following the war led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates against Yemen’s Houthi rebels—and the humanitarian crisis that the conflict has triggered—we are deeply alarmed by the prospect of intensified and prolonged hostilities. We urge you to use all available means to avert a catastrophic military assault on Yemen’s major port city of Hodeida by the Saudi-led coalition, and to present Congress with immediate clarification regarding the full scope of U.S. military involvement in that conflict. We remind you that three years into the conflict, active U.S. participation in Saudi-led hostilities against Yemen’s Houthis has never been authorized by Congress, in violation of the Constitution.1

Just over a year ago, a bipartisan group of 55 members of Congress sent a letter to the Trump Administration raising serious concerns regarding a potential Saudi- and UAE-led coalition attack against the Houthi-controlled port of Hodeida, with the possible consent and support of the United States.2 Though the offensive was ultimately forestalled, the Washington Post reports that you had “asked for approval of the rejected Hodeida operation, including additional surveillance, intelligence and operational assistance.”3

A renewed push by coalition forces to cut off and capture Hodeida led the Washington Post to editorialize, “The world’s worst humanitarian crisis could get even worse,” and experts warn that such an assault would destroy the prospects for a peace settlement.4 Save the Children noted that a closure of Hodeida port would lead to a “devastating cut in the humanitarian and commercial supply chain just when it’s needed most,” and that an assault on the city could displace “an additional 340,000 people.”5 In light of your April 2017 remarks that the war must be resolved “politically as soon as possible,” we urge you to use all tools at your disposal to dissuade the Saudi-led coalition from moving forward with this offensive and reject the provision of U.S. logistical, military and diplomatic support for any such operation.6 As the Washington Post editorial noted, the United States should “use its leverage to stop this reckless venture.”

Additionally, in light of recent New York Times revelations that “late last year, a team of about a dozen Green Berets arrived on Saudi Arabia’s border with Yemen, in a continuing escalation of America’s secret wars,” we seek immediate clarification on U.S. participation in the coalition’s war against the Houthis. Despite “virtually no public discussion or debate,” according to the Times, “Army commandos are helping locate and destroy caches of ballistic missiles and launch sites” of Houthi rebels in Yemen—activities which “appear to contradict Pentagon statements.”7

In light of these operations, please explain the following remarks, which include sworn testimony and classified briefings by Pentagon officials to Congress:

During a classified Senate briefing in March 2018, Senators “pressed Pentagon officials about the military’s role in the Saudi-led conflict,” yet Defense Department representatives stated that “American forces stationed in Saudi Arabia only advised within the kingdom’s borders and were focused mostly on border defense.”8

On March 13, 2018, Gen. Votel, Commander of U.S. Central Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that CENTCOM is “authorized to help the Saudis defend their border. We are doing that through intelligence sharing, through logistics support and through military advice that we provide to them,” yet, he added, “we’re not parties to this conflict.”9

At the request of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, William Castle, Acting General Counsel of the Department of Defense, sent a letter to the Senate asserting that U.S. support “does not involve any introduction of U.S. forces into hostilities.”10

On March 14, 2018 you wrote to the Senate that “neither President Obama nor President Trump authorized the use of U.S. military force against the Houthis. Our support takes the form of intelligence sharing, military advice, and logistical support, including air-to-air refueling. This non-combat support is focused on improving coalition processes and procedures, especially regarding compliance with the law of armed conflict and best practices for reducing the risk of civilian casualties.”11

We are concerned that in the midst of a Senate effort to exercise its constitutional authority to end unauthorized hostilities—including U.S. targeting and refueling assistance for Saudi-led airstrikes against Yemen’s Houthis—the Pentagon may have concealed key information from members of Congress regarding the full extent of on-the-ground U.S. military participation in the Saudi coalition-led war.

In violation of the War Powers Resolution of 1973, no specific statutory authorization exists for U.S. military personnel that coordinate, participate in the movement of, and accompany Saudi forces into hostilities against Yemen’s Houthis, or into circumstances where an imminent threat exists that Saudi forces will become engaged in such hostilities.12 The Houthis, reported the Times, “have not been classified by the American government as a terrorist group,” and are not covered by any existing Authorization for Use of Military Force.13

The New York Times editorial board concluded that “the Pentagon and the Trump administration apparently have misled Americans about growing military involvement in a war in Yemen that we should have nothing to do with.”14 The Saudi-led coalition, the editorial board added, is “the main driver of the misery” in Yemen, “with its air bombardments against civilian areas, and a land, air and sea blockade that is keeping large quantities of food, fuel and medicine from reaching millions of people.”15

We call on you to immediately disclose the full extent of the U.S. military role in the Saudi-led war against Yemen’s Houthis, including the use of special operations forces; disclose any role that the Pentagon is currently performing, has been asked to perform, or is considering performing regarding an attack on the port of Hodeida; and issue a public declaration opposing this impending assault and restating the Administration’s position that Saudi Arabia and other parties to the conflict should accept an immediate ceasefire and move toward a political settlement to resolve the conflict.

In light of a possibly disastrous offensive on Hodeida, we remind you that under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, Congress alone has the power to declare and authorize war, and the War Powers Resolution allows any individual member of Congress to force a debate and floor vote to remove U.S. forces from unauthorized hostilities. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee explicitly declared in 1973 that provisions of the War Powers Resolution were intended to “prevent secret, unauthorized military support activities” and avert “ever deepening ground combat involvement” in foreign conflicts, including via “U.S. ‘advisers’ to accompany” foreign armed forces into imminent hostilities.15 Your prompt responses will better enable us to exercise our exclusive constitutional responsibility to authorize and oversee the offensive use of U.S. military force.

Sincerely,

[Members of Congress]
