TEHRAN (FNA) – A despicable conspiracy is being unfolded along the Egyptian border with the Gaza Strip: Egypt’s military rulers are expelling the civilian population from the area to level the entire neighborhood and build a “buffer zone” with the besieged city, where roads, schools, hospitals, mosques and the electricity plant are still in ruins.
According to Egypt’s Al-Yom a-Sab’a, “The buffer zone will extend between 1.5 and 3 kilometers. The security forces will work to clear the area of underground tunnels leading to Gaza and it will also level any buildings and structures that could be used to conceal smuggling activity.” Continue reading Egypt, Israel Turning Gaza Into Super-Max Prison

(EDITOR’S NOTE: Several months ago, Hizbullah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah explicitly warned that the Jews would use ISIS’s continuing demolitions of mosques, Husseiniyas, churches and shrines in Iraq and Syria as an excuse — as well as a precedent — to carry out grave aggressions against Sanctified Al-Aqsa in occupied Al-Quds. Well, as usual, the Sayyed was right on the money. The closure of Islam’s third holiest site isn’t just a despicable Zionist crime against the indigenous Palestinian people… it’s an attack on all Muslims. And nothing is going to deter these Jewish supremacist fanatics from engaging in such actions again and again and again, except armed resistance in the West-Bank-Al-Quds region. The Islamic Republic of Iran, recognizing this to be the sole logical way of disrupting the illegitimate Zionist’s designs on Palestine in general, says it has already started the process of providing the Palestinian Resistance in the aforementioned region with arms. Insha’ALLAH this accelerates and deepens so operations like the one that targeted the deranged terrorist Yehuda Glick become a regularity, as “Israel” understands no language but force. ~ Jonathan Azaziah) Continue reading Israel closes al-Aqsa to all visitors after the shooting of a right-wing rabbi
