Today’s Jummah Supplications Are With The Palestinian Prisoners On Hunger Strike Across The Zionist Entity’s Dungeons

by Jonathan Azaziah

Jummah Mubarak to all you defiant and dauntless Mouqawamists. My supplications today are with occupied Palestine, the most oppressed nation on Earth, and its more than 1,500 hunger strikers rising up in the usurping ‘Israeli’ entity’s dungeons. Over 500 officials of Islamic Jihad have now joined in yet another Revolution of Empty Stomachs from besieged Gaza. A general walkout has been carried out in the West Bank, with schools, business and public transportation shutting down as solidarity spreads. The ’48 Lands will follow any moment now and the long-awaited Third Intifada just may be upon us if any of the starving moujahideen achieve martyrdom, including leader Marwan Barghouti. The Falasteeni prisoners are united, as activists from Fatah, Hamas, the PFLP, the DFLP, Islamic Jihad and the PRC are depriving themselves of food together in full rejection of the Zionist enemy and its barbarity. Their land stolen, their homes destroyed, their culture appropriated, their families broken, their olive trees burned, their weapons taken but their wills and their spirits, their hearts and their souls, UNMOVED. That is Palestine. Continue reading Today’s Jummah Supplications Are With The Palestinian Prisoners On Hunger Strike Across The Zionist Entity’s Dungeons

Leaked Israeli documents prompt suspicion from Hamas

by Adnan Abu Amer, Al-Monitor

sraeli media outlets have been publishing, in an unprecedented move, the 2014 Gaza war diary since early April 2015. These documents discuss the Israeli army’s failures in the face of Hamas. The most serious Israeli avowal was that of Ofer Shelah, a member of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, which was made public on April 2 and caused vehement reactions.

He was preceded by Yoav Galant, the former head of the Israeli army’s Southern Command. On March 7, Galant accused the Israeli government of failing to deal with the Hamas tunnels issue.

This is while on April 6 Israeli Channel 10 broadcast a video on the military investigation into the strike that hit the armored personnel carrier at the beginning of the Gaza war in the Shajaiya neighborhood on July 20, 2014.

Interestingly, the Hamas-affiliated media outlets have quickly circulated these avowals, which have become the talk of the hour in Gaza, as the Israeli reports — which have been translated into Arabic — have shown the Israeli army’s weakness and the courage of the Palestinian fighters, as revealed in several reports.

Hamas About To Officially Return to the Resistance Axis

by Qassem Qassem, Al-Akhbar English

Iran and Hamas have almost mended their relationship, even though Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal has yet to visit Tehran. The two sides held long discussions in the last few days, which culminated with the Hamas delegation passing on the requests of their military wing, the al-Qassam Brigades. These included requests for supplies of Iranian weapons in preparation for any future conflicts.

Hamas’ political experience with the so-called “moderate Arabs,” and those close to the Muslim Brotherhood, has shown that Iranian support for the Palestinian cause and resistance to the Israeli occupation is more consistent. According to Hamas leaders, the last Israeli attack on Gaza — the third in six years — showed that the axis of Arab moderates, with which the organization tried to establish closer relations, stood against Hamas during the war.

Gaza security services arrest top Israeli spy

Gaza’s security forces are claiming “a significant achievement” in catching an alleged collaborator responsible for passing information to Israel for over a decade.

News site al-Majd, known to be close to the Hamas movement that controls Gaza, said on Tuesday that the suspect had been detained by security services.

“The agent, considered by Israel’s internal security services to be one of their most active, is in custody, and has confessed to a number of grave crimes,” according to a source who spoke to al-Majd. Continue reading Gaza security services arrest top Israeli spy

Abu Marzouq: Cairo regime a ‘coup against Egyptian ethics’

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Senior Hamas official Moussa Abu Marzouq on Sunday lashed out against Abdel Fattah al-Sisi a day after the Egyptian leader heaped blame on Hamas for their alleged support of a Wahhabi insurgency in the Sinai peninsula.

The current regime in Egypt is a “coup against the history, the ethics, and the principles of Egypt,” the Hamas official said in a statement on his Facebook page. Continue reading Abu Marzouq: Cairo regime a ‘coup against Egyptian ethics’

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Leaders representing major Palestinian parties and resistance groups in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday gathered to express their support for Hezbollah’s strike against the Israeli military earlier in the day, calling for a “joint front” with the Lebanese movement.

The event, which brought together representatives of Hamas, Fatah, Islamic Jihad, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and a number of others, was held to celebrate the attack that left at least two Israeli soldiers in the occupied Shebaa Farms dead.

Love It When Zionists Admit Their Failure: Muhammad al-Deif Lives

by Ben Caspit, Al-Monitor

n the battle waged over the narrative of Operation Protective Edge (July-August 2014), in which both sides declared victory, it appears that the Palestinians have scored a significant achievement: Muhammed al-Deif, the Hamas chief of staff and No. 1 on Israel’s “most wanted list” who has survived numerous assassination attempts, has survived this time as well. It is clear; no more question marks; the uncertainty has disappeared: Deif is alive.

Hamas military chief sends condolences to Hizbullah

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — The general commander of Hamas’ military wing Muhammad Deif sent a letter of condolence to Hezbollah chief Hasan Nasrallah after an Israeli airstrike on Syria killed six fighters from the group.

Deputy chief of Hamas’ political bureau, Ismail Haniyeh, also sent a letter to the Lebanese group’s leader following the airstrike.

In the letter, seen by Ma’an, Deif said that resistance forces should join into one project against Israel, “the real enemy of the nation.” Continue reading Hamas military chief sends condolences to Hizbullah

PRC Spokesman: Future Operations Against the Enemy will be ‘Thorn in Israel’s Throat’

by Qassem Qassem, Al-Akhbar English

Abu Mujahid, spokesman for the Popular Resistance Committees, was a guest of the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon. During his visit, Israel assassinated Hezbollah resistance fighters in the province of Quneitra in Syria. Abu Mujahid attended their funerals. The Lebanese resistance and Palestinian resistance are part of one body, he says. Before his return to Gaza, Al-Akhbar conducted this interview with him.

The Popular Resistance Committees is a Palestinian coalition formed after the second Aqsa Intifada in 2000. Several operations were carried out by its military wing, the al-Nasser Salah al-Deen Brigades. Most notable among these operations is the the first bombing of the Israeli Merkava tank, in addition to “Operation Dispelled Illusion,” during which Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit was captured and three secretary-generals were assassinated.

Al-Akhbar: What is your take on the assassination of Hezbollah fighters in the Syrian province of Quneitra?

Abu Mujahid: This is a serious escalation. The Israeli occupation does not like to see calm in the region. Israel will realize that assassinating this large number of martyrs in Quneitra was a foolish act and will have consequences. The blood of the martyrs, and the blood of Jihad, the son of martyred commander Imad Mughniyeh, will only further motivate the resistance.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah: The game is over in Syria

by Ali Hashem, Al-Monitor

“The game is over,” Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah said. “All hostile attempts to execute plans in Syria and Iraq failed,” he said in the three-hour interview with the pan-Arab news channel Al-Mayadeen on Jan. 15.

Nasrallah’s interview was packed with messages on Israel, Syria, Iraq, Bahrain and Iran; in rhetoric, it seemed offensive, non-conciliatory and threatening, yet between the lines, there were stances that could be seen as new and promising, mainly on Syria.
