Haifa Abu Sbeih was only 15 when she witnessed the immediate aftermath of a horrific massacre outside her family’s home in the Old City of Hebron (Al-Khalil).
She recalls standing outside her home in 1994, searching for her older brother after she heard gunshots in the Ibrahimi Mosque nearby, where an American Israeli settler had opened fire on hundreds of Palestinians during dawn prayers, killing 29 and wounding more than 100.
“All the men poured into the streets, their clothes dripping with blood, crying and seeking refuge in our home,” she tells Al Jazeera. While she stood outside calling for her sibling, Abu Sbeih says the army shot and killed a young man, Nour al-Muhtaseb, right before her eyes.
This incident, was for Abu Sbeih, a taste of…

RT – America is fine with “rebels” like Al-Qaeda “protesting” in Syria, but when genuinely unarmed protesters in Palestine exercise their right under international law to protest the occupiers who violently expelled them from their homes and land, they are “inciting violence.” The hypocrisy of America and the UN never ends, and as a result, the violence of Israel will never end.
While Turkey cries crocodile tears for Palestinians, Israel pretends to be the most moral army in the world, and the UN turns endless blind eyes to Israel’s war crimes and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians, and Palestinians continue to bravely protest the crimes of Israel. CONTINUE READING
WARNING VERY GRAFIC
Saudi and UAE warplanes, supplied by the U.S., attacked a refugee camp in Hodeidah, Yemen yesterday. The results, as you can see, were gruesome.
Yemen is a human catastrophe that the world turns a blind eye to. The Gulf monarchies and their western backers continue with their deranged belief that reigning in “Iranian influence” in the region lies in bombing Yemen mercilessly.
How many charred bodies of children do we have to see before we come to our senses?
Every American should know that their government subcontracts this barbarism. Just two weeks ago, Washington laid the red carpet to Mohammed Bin Salman, in a shameless display of callousness, tacitly approving his country’s actions in Yemen. U.S. media outlets touted MBS as a “reformer.” The pictures below show the real face of MBS.
BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and local civil defence units have reportedly discovered three mass graves in the western countryside of the Al-Raqqa Governorate today.
According to local reports, the mass graves were discovered just west of the Tabaqa Military Airport.
The exhumed bodies are believed to be the remains of the 200+ Syrian Army soldiers that were brutally marched through the desert and executed by the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS).
Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman rejected calls by the EU and the UN to investigate the Friday killings of Palestinian protesters during the ongoing Land Day protests, declaring instead that “Israeli forces deserve a commendation.”
Lieberman said there is no need for an inquiry into the deaths of at least 16 unarmed Palestinians rallying in the so-called Land Day Protests against Israel’s 1948 occupation and seizure of Palestinian territories.
Israeli forces opened fire on protesters, killing 16 and injuring over 1,400 people, according to multiple eyewitnesses.
UN Secretary General António Guterres and the top EU diplomat Federica Mogherini have called for independent inquiries into the bloodshed.
“From the standpoint of the [Israeli Defence Force] soldiers, they did what had to be done,” Lieberman told Israeli public radio on Sunday, according to the Guardian. “I think that all of our troops deserve a commendation.”
IDF spokespeople declared that claims by the Gaza Health Ministry that over 1400 people were wounded by live fire are exaggerated.
