Palestinian/ Israeli update 6/22/2017...400,000 Muslims in Al Aqsa for the 27th night of Ramadan 1438

400,000 Muslims in Al Aqsa for the 27th night of Ramadan 1438

Some 300,000 Muslims Attend Overnight Prayers at Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem

Some 300,000 Muslims from the West Bank, Jerusalem and abroad held prayers on Wednesday night into Thursday at Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa Mosque amid entry restrictions by Israeli authorities to mark Laylat al-Qadr, one of Ramadan's holiest nights. The Jordan-run Islamic Waqf department said among the hundreds of thousands of worshippers at the mosque were visitors from a variety of countries, including Malaysia, Turkey, South Africa, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, Jordan and Indonesia, Ma'an reported. Addressing the worshipers at the holy site, Sheikh Omar Kiswani, the mosque’s director, said the masses of worshipers who attended the overnight prayers at al-Aqsa Mosque confirms to the entire world that “they worshipers came here to reaffirm the Islamic nature of this mosque and defend it.”

Earlier the day, the Israeli occupation authorities banned worshipers from the West Bank below the age of 40 from entering Jerusalem to attend overnight prayers at al-Aqsa Mosque. Worshipers between 30 and 40 of age were only allowed entry with a special permit issued by the Israeli authorities. Sheikh Azzam al-Khateib, director of the Jerusalem office of the Islamic Waqf, condemned the Israeli measures and entry restrictions on Palestinian worshipers from the West Bank. He said all Muslim worshipers should have the right to access the holy site throughout the year and with no restrictions.

Laylat al-Qadr, is usually observed on the 27th day of Ramadan. Prayer on the holy night of is said to be better than 1,000 months of prayers, due to the abundance of mercy and blessings shown by Allah during a time when the Quran was first revealed to Prophet Muhammad.

The Al-Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest place in Islam after Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.

Plight of Palestinians persists under Israeli occupation

Soldiers unscathed in "attack" that leaves Palestinian dead | The Electronic Intifada

The family of a Palestinian man shot dead by Israeli soldiers on Tuesday are rejecting the military’s claim that Bahaa al-Hirbawi, 23, was attempting a stabbing attack when he was slain.

Al-Hirbawi was slain at the Jabaa military checkpoint near the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah on Monday. Photos published by Palestinian media outlets appeared to show multiple bullet wounds in al-Hirbawi’s legs, as well as his head.

No Israelis were injured during the incident.

Al-Hirbawi’s relatives told Palestinian media that the young man was on his way to Ramallah, where he intended to go shopping and visit his brother, when he was killed by soldiers.

His family, who learned of al-Hirbawi’s death through social media, said that he had not been previously detained and had no political affiliation.

Israeli forces raided al-Eizariya, where al-Hirbawi lived, and surrounded his family’s home and detained his father, who was taken to a settlement for interrogation.

Mother of slain teen arrested

On Wednesday, Israeli soldiers arrested the mother of one of three Palestinian teenagers slain in Jerusalem after an attack in which a Border Police combatant was fatally wounded on Friday.

Zeinab Ankoush was arrested during a raid on her home in the West Bank village of Deir Abu Mashal and transferred to the Russian compound interrogation center in Jerusalem, a lawyer with the Palestinian Authority’s committee on prisoners affairs told media.

Ankoush was arrested over comments she allegedly made to the Israeli broadcaster Kan stating that she was proud of her son, Adel Hassan Ahmad Ankoush, 18, and that she wished she had killed “20, 50, 100 of them.”

All three youths killed during the Jerusalem attack were from Deir Abu Mashal, which has been subjected to severe Israeli restrictions since the incident.

According to the Israeli daily Haaretz, people aged 15-25 are forbidden from entering or exiting the village.

Video uploaded to social media was said to show soldiers in the village preventing secondary school students from accessing their schools to sit for their final exams:

Israel imposed a full lockdown on the village following the incident, and gave notice to the slain assailants’ families that their homes would be demolished.

Israel also revoked 250,000 permits issued to Palestinians in the West Bank allowing them to visit relatives in Israel during Ramadan and the upcoming Eid al-Fitr holiday.

Youths threw stones in an attempt to repel invading Israeli forces in the village early Wednesday:

Soldiers were photographed removing banners honoring the three slain youths in Deir Abu Mashal:

Israeli forces ransacked residents’ homes during the early Wednesday raid:

Israel weaponizes Jerusalem attack against PA

Israel’s economy minister has reportedly postponed a series of measures supposedly intended to bolster the Palestinian economy in protest of the Palestinian Authority’s refusal to condemn the Jerusalem attack.

The Israeli minister, Eli Cohen, canceled his meeting with his Palestinian Authority counterpart scheduled on Tuesday.

The suspended measures – never actually implemented – reportedly include “import quotas, easing the process of standards approval with the Standards Institution of Israel, easing the import and export of goods at the ports, and more,” according to the Israeli Ynet news outlet.

The Palestinian Authority loses $285 million in revenue each year under the current economic arrangements with Israel, which collects VAT, import taxes and other revenues on behalf of the PA, according to the World Bank.

The World Bank has called on Israel to reduce the PA’s financial losses, stating that a “systematic mechanism to stop the accumulation of these leakages,” as well as a revision of the “excessive” fee of 3 percent charged by Israel to handle Palestinian imports, “would be expected to generate in excess of $150 million per year in additional revenues for the PA.”

Cohen is not the only Israeli minister to exploit the Jerusalem attack to castigate the Palestinian Authority, which Israel’s domestic intelligence agency has credited for thwarting many other such incidents.

Israeli foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman stated that the PA’s failure to condemn the Jerusalem attack “prove[s] there is no partner.”

On Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on the “international community” to condemn the attack and demand a halt to payments from the Palestinian Authority to the families of Palestinians slain by Israeli forces.

During his briefing to the Security Council on Monday, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Nickolay Mladenov, called on all parties to refrain from incitement and “clearly condemn all acts of terrorism.”

He added: “Palestinian officials and media outlets affiliated with Fatah continued to commemorate perpetrators of past terror attacks against Israeli civilians.”

Thirty-three Palestinians have been killed so far this year, including eight children under the age of 18, have been slain by Israeli forces and armed civilians so far this year.

Scores of Palestinians, many of them children, have been shot dead even when they posed no immediate threat to life over the past two years, as part of an apparent shoot-to-kill policy endorsed by the highest levels of the Israeli government.

Seven Israelis, most of them military forces, have been killed by Palestinians so far this year, as well as a British national.

Whistle-Blower Mujtahid says Saudi Arabia, UAE Plotting to Stage Coup in Qatar

Saudi whistle-blower Mujtahid, who is believed to be a member of or have a well-connected source in the royal family, revealed an unprecedented plot by Saudi Arabia and the UAE for carrying out a coup in Qatar.

Mujtahid on his Twitter page wrote that UAE’s Mohammad bin Zayyed and Saudi Arabia’s Mohammad bin Salman had been plotting to wage a coup in Qatar.

According to the scenario, the Saudi and UAE forces were planning to stage a coup in Qatar by occupying that country in cooperation with Blackwater security forces and give control of the country to a sheikh from Al Thani family who would support Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

He noted that but they cancelled their plot in the last moment after the US interference.

Mujtahid said that according to the plot, the Qatari forces were to stay for a while in Najran in Southern Saudi Arabia in a bid to make them lose contact with the Centcome in Qatar, but they were to be sent there on an errand and treated with respect.

In the meantime, the Saudi and Emirati forces were supposed to enter Doha in the Qatari army uniforms and pretend that they are Qatari troops who had been stationed in Southern Saudi Arabia. Concurrently the UAE naval forces would arrive in Qatar with the help of US Blackwater company forces and take control of all sensitive and important centers, he added.

He noted that the scenario of the military coup and ousting the Qatari emir was cancelled due to the US opposition despite their high preparedness for implementing the plot. "It was said that the CIA had monitored the plot in detail and had opposed it."

Mujtahid continued that Bin Salman and Bin Zayed had trusted (US President) Donald Trump's Tweets without realizing that Pentagon and other security centers would not accept such plans. "The Pentagon also conducted a joint military maneuver with Qatari forces in order to abort the coup."

He reiterated that the Qatari troops at the Southern border of Saudi Arabia are regarded the best military forces of that country and the plot organizers believed that their absense in Qatar would weaken Qatar's defense system and make their mission easier.

Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt cut off diplomatic ties with Qatar early June, and suspended air and sea communication one week after the Arab Islamic American Summit in Riyadh, accusing Doha of supporting terrorist organizations and destabilizing the situation in the Middle East.

Later, Libya, Maldives, Mauritius and Mauritania joined that list of nation to break off diplomatic relations with Doha.

Jordan and Djibouti have also announced that Amman and Djibouti decided to reduce their diplomatic status after studying reasons behind the tension between Cairo, Riyadh, Abu Dhabi and Manama with Qatar.

Qatar protested the unjustified decision of Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates to cut ties with the country.

"We regret the decision to sever relations," the the Qatari Foreign Ministry said in a statement, adding that "these measures are unjustified, they are based on assertions without foundation."

"The State of Qatar is an active member of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the [Persian] Gulf [GCC], respects its charter, respects the sovereignty of other states and does not interfere in their internal affairs, and also fulfills its obligations to combat terrorism and extremism," the ministry stressed.

Turkey Sends Large Military Convoy to Syria to Fight against Kurds

The Turkish army dispatched a well-equipped military convoy to Northern Aleppo after conflicts intensified between the Ankara-supported forces fighting within the framework of the Euphrates Shield Operation and the Kurdish-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The Turkish army sent a large military convoy, consisting of tanks and military vehicles, to Mar'e city in Northern Aleppo on Wednesday.

Before the development, heavy clashes had erupted between the Turkey-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) and the SDF forces in Northern Aleppo.

The incidents occurred as negotiations between the SDF and the Ankara-backed terrorists to deliver the control of 11 towns and villages in Northern Aleppo, including Tal Rafat, to the FSA also failed.

Earlier this month, the SDF forces ambushed a group of militants that are under the Turkish Army's back up, killing almost 30 of them in Western Aleppo.

The Kurdish fighters stormed the Ankara-backed militants of the Euphrates Shield that were advancing in areas near Dar al-Izzah and Deir Sam'an in Western Aleppo, destroying three military vehicles and killing 28 fighters.

Based on field reports, the death toll among the Euphrates Shield forces is most likely to increase due to the critical condition of those injured in the attack.

Sorcha Faal says Trump Prepares For Retaliation After USS Fitzgerald “Collision” Ruled “Act Of War”

President Trump Prepares For Retaliation After USS Fitzgerald “Collision” Ruled “Act Of War”

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

A grim Ministry of Defense (MoD) urgent action bulletin circulating in the Kremlin today states that the Federation has received notice from the US Pacific Command (PACOM) that “hostilities are likely to soon occur” throughout the entire Sea of Japan region—and that the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) states is “directly related” to North Korea hacking the autopilot controls of a massive container ship, then crashing it into a US Navy destroyer killing, at least, 7 American sailors. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

According to this bulletin, early on 17 June 2017, the US Navy destroyer DDG-62 USS Fitzgerald collided with MV ACX Crystal, a Philippine-flagged container ship, 104 kilometers (64 miles) southwest of Yokosuka and 19 kilometers (12 miles) southeast of the city of Shimoda—both cities being in Japan.

MoD analysis of sea and weather conditions existing in the collision area at the time this incident occurred, this bulletin continues, shows the waters having a Douglas Sea Scale rating of 2 for State of Sea (0.10–0.50 meter wave height [Smooth]) and a 1 rating for Swell (Very Low-short or average and low wave) and a US Department of Defense rating (PDF) of 9 for excellent visibility (over 50 kilometers/30 nautical miles) with a Beaufort scale weather rating of “B” (Blue Sky/0-2/8 clouded).

With neither sea or weather conditions having any contributing factor in this collision, this bulletin states, MoD analysts then began an Automated Identification System (AIS) analysis of both the USS Fitzgerald and ACX Crystal—with it being quickly discovered that the USS Fitzgerald was operating without their AIS, but the ACX Crystal being able to have its entire course analyzed.

AIS, this bulletin explains, is a tracking system that has become the “Internet of Ships” and is a tool for nearly anyone to identify and track ships traveling around the world through websites and mobile applications—with many AIS receivers connected directly to the Internet via serial port servers that are carried aboard ships, buoys, and other navigation markers.

The MoD’s analysis of the ACX Crystal’s AIS tracking data, this bulletin notes, showed that the cause of this collision was due to it radically altering its course by making a “U turn” on the open sea and then heading directly towards the USS Fitzgerald and ramming it.

AIS tracking log of ACX Crystal on 17 June 2017

Audio recordings from the bridge of the USS Fitzgerald, this bulletin continues, reveal that its US Navy sailors feverishly tried to avoid the ACX Crystal, but to no avail as this 10-story tall container ship had greatly accelerated its speed—with no one on the USS Fitzgerald being able to fully comprehend that they were under attack.

USS Fitzgerald bridge audio begins around 9:30...collision with ACX Crystal at 12:40......

Critical to note about the ACX Crystal’s radical departure from its course, this bulletin notes, is that two days before its ramming the USS Fitzgerald, on 15 June, the same type of “incident” occurred when a Federation registered yacht named the Katalexa, that was sailing from Taiwan to the Russian city of Vladivostok, was hijacked by North Korea with its frantic crew desperately radioing that they had lost “all control” over their vessel.

MoD and SVR “assests”, this bulletin continues, quickly secured the release of the Katalexa from North Korea—with the SVR reporting that an examination of its onboard electronic systems showed that its autopilot had been hacked and was the cause of it’s being “steered” into North Korean waters in the Sea of Japan.

Important to note, SVR analysts in this bulletin state, is that the Katalexa was equipped with a NAVIPILOT 4000 Marine Autopilot system that receives its orders from the Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine ECDIS, and that ACX Crystal was equipped with a more sophisticated version of called the Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine VisionMaster FT Integrated Bridge System (IBS), both being manufactured by the British based company Sperry Marine Northrop Grumman.

The most striking similarity to the hijacking of both the Katalexa and ACX Crystal, this bulletin notes, is that they both occurred during the night hours “when everyone was asleep”.

Though some American sources are claiming that the Chinese hijacked the autopilot of the ACX Crystal in order to ram it into the USS Fitzgerald, this bulletin continues, SVR and MoD analysts, instead, attribute this “act of war” to Unit 180 of North Korea’s Reconnaissance General Bureau (RGB)—who just this past month, terrified the world with its WannaCry “ransomware” cyber attack that infected more than 300,000 computers in 150 countries, and is linked to last year's $81 million cyber heist at the Bangladesh central bank and the 2014 attack on Sony's Hollywood studio too.

With US aircraft carrier battle groups CVN-68 Nimitz, CVN-70 Carl Vinson and CVN-76 Ronald Reagan rapidly being redeployed to the Sea of Japan, this bulletin grimly says, President Trump, yesterday, Tweeted a not too subtle “warning of war” stating that China had failed in trying to ease the threat posed by North Korea (and that was fully supported by his Defense Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis) thus creating a “high noon” situation for war that North Korea responded to by “overtures of peace” no expects the US to accept.

To what is expected should President Trump, indeed, retaliate against North Korea for attacking the USS Fitzgerald, this bulletin concludes, one need look no further than the massive US military war exercise called “Northern Edge” conducted last year in Alaska with America’s entire integrated force structure involved to know what will happen—and one of whose participants, Mr. Rickey Smith, US Deputy Chief of Staff, G-9,Training and Doctrine Command, detailed exactly how to take care of North Korea’s hacking by his stating: “If you want to stop a cyber-attack, put a 120mm tank round through the server and the operator of the cyber attack will stop”.
