Misery Hangs Over Gaza Despite Pledges of Help

GAZA — Dozens of families still live in tents amid collapsed buildings and rusting pipes. With construction materials barred, a few are building mud-brick homes. Everything but food and medicine has to be smuggled through desert tunnels from Egypt. Among the items that people seek is an addictive pain reliever used to fight depression. Four months after Israel waged a war here to stop Hamas rocket fire and two years after Hamas took full control of this coastal strip, Gaza is like an island adrift.

IAF striking smuggling tunnels on Philadelphi Corridor

IAF jets attacked targets in Khan Yunis and Rafah on Tuesday afternoon, several hours after a Grad-type rocket landed in Ashkelon, Palestinian sources reported.

Around 6:00 p.m. a car was hit in the Rafah area at the southern Gaza Strip. Earlier a Hamas outpost in the Bani Swaheil area east of Khan Yunis was destroyed. Several smuggling tunnels along the Philadelphi Corridor were also struck.

Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who was speaking at the Herzliya Conference, told attendees that “the IAF is operating in the Gaza Strip right now.”

Earlier, after the Grad-type rocket hit in Ashkelon on Tuesday morning, the IDF warned residents of Rafah, in the south of the Gaza Strip, that they should leave their homes lest they be caught in an IAF air strike.

The recorded messages, in Arabic, said people who work in tunnels, live near them or are “giving logistical help to terrorists” should evacuate the area immediately, residents said.

Earlier on Tuesday, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defense Minister Ehud Barak, and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni convened to discuss the latest ceasefire violation, and the potential Israeli response.

While there was no comment as to what was said in the meeting, spokesman for the Prime Minister’s Office Mark Regev warned of grave consequences should the rocket fire continue.

“Hamas is playing with fire and they alone will be responsible for the destruction of the truce,” Regev said. “The whole international community will understand that if there is a new escalation it will be the direct result of Hamas’s extremist, irresponsible and nihilistic behavior.”

On Tuesday morning Palestinians fired a Grad rocket at Ashkelon, the first instance of such a rocket being fired into Israel since the end of Operation Cast Lead some two weeks ago.

There were no casualties reported in the attack, but some damage to the surrounding area was reported.

On Monday night Gaza terrorists fired a Kassam rocket that hit a kibbutz in the Sha’ar Hanegev region. No one was wounded and no damage was reported in that attack either.

Earlier Monday, minutes after a mortar shell struck an open area in the Eshkol region, IAF warplanes responded, launching a missile at a vehicle in the southern Gaza Strip.

According to witnesses in the area, one person was killed and three others wounded in the attack. The IDF said that the men were part of the cell which fired the mortar shell into Israel.

TUNNEL PER LA VITA – EGITTO E ISRAELE GUIDANO LA CACCIA AGLI UOMINI TALPA

Posted by Folco Zaffalon su 25 gennaio, 2009

di Michele Giorgio – INVIATO A RAFAH per il Manifesto

Un attimo dopo lo scoccare della tregua, i palestinesi hanno iniziato a costruire nuovi cunicoli e ripristinare quelli danneggiati dai bombardamenti. Gruppi di sei operai lavorano in turni da 12 ore al giorno: sono già 200 le gallerie funzionanti. «Le armi dei miliziani passano altrove, qui transitano le merci che ci permettono di sopravvivere». L’affitto agli sfollati? Lo paga Hamas Leggi il seguito di questo post »

I partiti della guerra a picco nei sondaggi

Posted by Folco Zaffalon su 23 gennaio, 2009

di Michele Giorgio – GERUSALEMME – Il Manifesto

Centinaia di palestinesi si riversano a Rafah e iniziano a rimettere su i tunnel che collegano la Striscia all’Egitto. La Livni: li colpiremo ancora. Hamas: investiremo migliaia di euro nella ricostruzione. Il fallimento dell’offensiva può terremotare il voto del 10 febbraio, regalando la vittoria ai partiti ultra nazionalisti
Litigiosi, insoddisfatti, increduli di fronte alla sconfitta elettorale che con ogni probabilità li attende il 10 febbraio. Appaiono così i membri della «trojka» israeliana – il premier Olmert, il ministro della difesa Barak e il ministro degli esteri Livni – dopo la pubblicazione degli ultimi sondaggi d’opinione.

Gaza needs a unified Arab response

Posted by Alessandro Accorsi su 20 gennaio, 2009

Editorial

The National

Both Israel and Hamas have claimed victory with their respective unilaterally declared ceasefires, but it is difficult to see what they gained after 22 days of death and destruction in the Gaza Strip. Despite the assault, Hamas’s ability to launch rockets persists. As if to drive the point home, it launched 19 rockets into Israel while the Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert, was announcing the ceasefire.

EU leaders commit to curb flow of arms into Gaza Strip

Etgar Lefkovits , THE JERUSALEM POST

Less than 24 hours after Prime Minister Ehud Olmert declared a unilateral cease-fire, six European leaders came to Jerusalem Sunday to underscore their commitment to ending the arms smuggling into Gaza, in a move Jerusalem insisted was more than just an empty gesture.

“Six world leaders dropped everything to come here and express their support for Israel’s security. That’s not something that happens every day,” one senior diplomatic official said. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Analysis: Hamas will never change. Will Egypt?

David Horovitz , THE JERUSALEM POST

It is an indication of the resilience of the smuggling network that runs under the Egypt-Gaza border that on Saturday night, at the end of the 22nd day of Operation Cast Lead, the IDF announced it had targeted more than 100 tunnels in the course of the day.

For more than three weeks now, the IDF has been trying to tackle the tunnel infrastructure from the air, and still the job has not been accomplished. Many of the smuggling routes beneath the narrow Philadelphi Corridor are evidently still usable. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Analysis: Egypt may help prevent Gaza smuggling, but only on its own terms

Yaakov Katz , THE JERUSALEM POST

With Operation Cast Lead entering what appears to be its closing act, Egypt will soon need to prove whether it can provide Israel the security guarantees it is seeking in the form of a complete halt of weapons smuggling along the Philadelphi Corridor. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Tre settimane di distruzione non fermano i razzi e scalfiscono appena la forza militare di Hamas

Posted by Folco Zaffalon su 15 gennaio, 2009

di Michele  Giorgio – GERUSALEMME

Mille palestinesi morti, tra i quali diverse centinaia di civili, oltre 4.500 feriti, distruzioni immense, infrastrutture pubbliche in ginocchio, decine di migliaia di senzatetto. Questo è il quadro di Gaza dopo 19 giorni di bombardamenti aerei, cannoneggiamenti, e attacchi con i mezzi corazzati finalizzati, secondo la versione ufficiale israeliana, a «mettere fine ai lanci di razzi» dalla Striscia di Gaza e a «smantellare il braccio armato di Hamas». E invece, dopo quasi tre settimane di carneficina, si scopre che l’ala militare del movimento islamico – le «Brigate Ezzedin Qassam» e la «Tanfisiyeh» (Forza esecutiva) – non sta poi così male, anzi.

HERB KEINON and YAAKOV KATZ , THE JERUSALEM POST

Amos Gilad, the head of the Defense Ministry’s Diplomatic-Security Bureau, returned from Egypt Thursday evening, and was updating Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defense Minister Ehud Barak, and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni on talks held in Cairo.

Gilad, along with Olmert’s foreign policy adviser Shalom Turgeman, headed an Israeli delegation in talks on a mechanism to prevent arms smuggling into the Gaza Strip which, according to the Prime Minister’s Office, could create the conditions for a cease-fire. Leggi il seguito di questo post »
