Six Israeli 'spies' executed before baying mob in Gaza City, before motorbike gang drags one bloodied victim through the streets




  • More than 110 Palestinians and three Israelis dead since Operation Pillar of Defence began last Wednesday
  • Security guard stabbed at the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv earlier today 
  • Palestinian gunmen shot dead six alleged collaborators in the Gaza Strip who 'were caught red-handed' and chained them to a motorcycle and dragged it throughout the main streets
  • Hamas health ministry officials: A father and his two sons - thought to be aged two and four - were killed overnight
  • U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is due in Israel for crisis talks 
  • In Cairo U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called for an immediate ceasefire




Six men accused of being 'Israeli spies' were dragged through the streets of Gaza City and executed in front of a chanting mob today as Israel warned Palestinians to evacuate some areas of the territory in apparent preparation for a ground invasion.
Witnesses said the six were taken to an intersection in the north of the city where they were summarily shot for providing intelligence that helped Israel pinpoint key figures in Hamas and the Islamic Jihad targeted by their warplanes.
The names of the men are said to have been scrawled on the road after they had been questioned by Hamas security officials about who provided the 'human intelligence' necessary to pinpoint targets for 'precision' attacks that have 118 Palestinians - half civilians, including women and children, dead - in seven days of military operations.

DEADLOCK: BUT WHAT DO ISRAEL AND HAMAS WANT?

Israel and Gaza's militant Hamas rulers have staked tough, hard-to-bridge positions, and the gaps fuel the threat of an Israeli ground invasion.
The content of the Egyptian plan is unknown, but both Israel and Hamas have presented conditions and Egyptian intelligence officials are meeting representatives from Israel and Hamas separately. 
Israel - concentrating on arms and weaponry demands 
Israel demands an end to rocket fire from Gaza and a halt to weapons smuggling into Gaza through tunnels under the border with Egypt.
It also wants international guarantees that Hamas will not rearm or use Egypt's Sinai region, which abuts both Gaza and southern Israel, to attack Israelis.
Hamas - wants attacks halted and restrictions lifted 
Hamas wants Israel to halt all attacks on Gaza and lift tight restrictions on trade and movement in and out of the territory that have been in place since Hamas seized Gaza by force in 2007.
Israel has rejected such demands in the past.

Hamas Aqsa radio quoted a security official as saying the men had been 'caught red handed' with 'hi-tech equipment and filming equipment to take footage of positions.' 
Gunmen chained the body of one of the alleged collaborators to a motorcycle and dragged it throughout the main streets of Gaza City in a warning to others who 'betrayed' Palestinians.
The executions came as Israel carried out more than 150 more strikes in Gaza and dropped leaflets in the heavily populated north and south of the city warning Palestinians to evacuate certain areas.
The leaflets include a 'grid' of streets to be cleared, adding : 'The Israel Defence Forces are not targeting any of you and they do not want to harm you or your families. For your safety, you are required to evacuate your residences immediately and move towards central Gaza city.' 
The move was seen as preparation for a possible land offensive but also a means as increasing pressure on Hamas to give ground in its demands over the terms of a ceasefire agreement being brokered in Cairo through Egypt.
 


    Significantly, Egypt's president Mohammed Mursi, who has been vocal in his support for the people of Gaza and whose Muslim Brotherhood was mentor to the founders of Hamas, predicted a breakthrough ceasefire could be reached tomorrow and that negotiations were yielding 'positive results.'

    US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton flew to the region yesterday to meet with leaders in what was seen to be a key move by President Barack Obama to ensure Israel pulls back from a land offensive.
    Mrs Clinton is scheduled to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank and Egyptian leaders in Cairo.
    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said yesterday that Israel is exploring a diplomatic solution, but wouldn't balk at a broader military operation.
    'I prefer a diplomatic solution, he said, 'But if the fire continues, we will be forced to take broader measures and will not hesitate to do so.' 
    He added : 'If a long-term solution can be put in place by diplomatic means, Israel will be a willing partner.'

    UN Secretary General Ban ki-Moon is already locked in talks in the region and warned yesterday : 'This must stop, immediate steps are needed to avoid further escalation, including a ground operation. Both sides must hold fire immediately ... Further escalation of the situation could put the entire region at risk.'
    As Ban spoke in Jerusalem, residents ran for cover when Palestinians fired a rocket towards the holy city for the second time since the fighting started last Wednesday.
    TV pictures showed terrified people sheltering behind walls and beside cars.
    The rocket, which set off sirens in the city, landed harmlessly in an open area on the outskirts in one of the longest rocket strikes fired from the Gaza.

    Jerusalem had previously been considered beyond the range of Gaza rockets - and an unlikely target because it is home to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, Islam's third-holiest shrine.
    Israeli officials feared Gaza's Hamas rulers will try to stage similar attacks deep into Israel's heartland ahead of any possible truce.
    Three Israeli civilians have been killed and dozens wounded since the fighting began last week, the numbers kept down by a rocket-defence system that Israel developed with U.S. funding. More than 1,000 rockets have been fired at Israel this week, the military said.
    Shortly after the Jerusalem attack, an Israeli airstrike destroyed a car in Gaza City killing five people and seriously wounding four others. Six Palestinians died yesterday, health officials said.

    In a sign of the difficulty diplomats will have in forging such a cease-fire, a man identified as Mohammed Deif, Hamas' elusive military commander, urged his fighters to keep up attacks on Israel.
    Speaking from hiding on Hamas-run TV and radio, Deif said Hamas 'must invest all resources to uproot this aggressor from our land,' a reference to Israel.
    Deif is one of the founders of Hamas' military wing and was its top commander until he was seriously wounded in an Israeli airstrike in 2003. He was replaced as the de facto leader by Ahmed Jabari, who was assassinated by Israel last week in the opening salvo of its latest Gaza offensive.
    Foreign Secretary William Hague warned the Commons the 'window' for a negotiated two-state solution between Gaza and Israel would soon be closed.

    He said: "There is no military resolution to the crisis in Gaza or to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Peace becomes harder to achieve with each confrontation, each loss of life.
    'The only way to give the Palestinian people the state that they need and deserve, and the Israeli people the security and peace they are entitled to, is through a negotiated two-state solution and time for this is now running out.
    'This requires Israelis and Palestinians to return to negotiations, Israel to stop illegal settlement building, Palestinian factions to reconcile with each other and the international community, led by the United States, and supported by European nations to make a huge effort to push the peace process forward urgently.'
    Meanwhile, The conflict showed signs of spilling into the West Bank, as hundreds of Palestinian protesters in the town of Jenin clashed with Israeli forces during a demonstration against Israel's Gaza offensive.
    Two Palestinian protesters were killed in anti-Israel demonstrations in the West Bank on Monday, according to Palestinian officials. Separate clashes occurred yesterday in Ramallah, the seat of the Palestinian government, during the funeral for one of the dead.

    Successive Israeli governments have struggled to come up with an effective policy toward Hamas, which is deeply rooted in Gaza, a densely populated territory of 1.6 million.
    Neither Israel's economic blockade of the territory nor bruising military strikes have cowed Gaza's Islamists, weakened their grip on the Palestinian strip their ability to fire rockets at the Jewish state. 
    An Israeli ground invasion would risk Israeli troop losses, and it could send the number of Palestinian civilian casualties ballooning - a toll Israel could be reluctant to risk just four years after its last invasion drew allegations of war crimes. 
    President Barack Obama and other Western leaders have urged Israel to avoid a ground war.

    Still, with Israeli elections just two months away, polls show Israeli public sentiment has lined up staunchly behind the offensive Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government has launched.
    Israel and Gaza's militants have a long history of fighting, but the dynamics have changed radically since they last warred four years ago. 
    Though their hardware is no match for the Israeli military, militants have upgraded their capabilities with weapons smuggled in from Iran and Libya, Israeli officials claim.

    Bus bomb blast injures ten in Tel Aviv as Hillary Clinton brokers Gaza peace deal with leaders



    • Secretary of State holds series of talks in West Bank, Israel and Egypt
    • U.N. Sec Gen Ban Ki-moon said there were 'many details to work out'
    • Israel bombs Gaza's Yarmouk sports stadium, causing casualties
    • Overnight, Israel carried out more than 30 Israeli airstrikes over Gaza
    • Ministries, a banker's villa and a Hamas-linked media office were hit
    • Israel also said it bombed tunnels along the Gaza-Egypt border
    • UN aid agency says 10,000 Gazans have sought shelter in UN-run schools
    • At least 10 people injured after explosion in the heart of Tel Aviv

    A bomb blast ripped through a bus in Tel Aviv today and the carnage continued for an eighth straight day as a flurry of diplomatic activity saw Hillary Clinton meet Israeli leaders again to try and come to a peace deal over Gaza. 
    The bus blast and further attacks on both sides threatened to undermine attempts by the U.S. Secretary of State to try again to agree the truce after she had talks in the West Bank, Israel and Egypt today.
    After meetings in Ramallah with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Mrs Clinton held a second meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before travelling to Egypt for discussions with President Mohamed Mursi.
    Following that meeting, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said there were 'many details to work out' before a ceasefire could be reached to end the conflict.

    While it is understood a Thursday deadline has been set for the Egypt-brokered talks, an Egyptian intelligence source had previously said 'there is still no breakthrough and Egypt is working to find middle ground.'

    'I am particularly concerned about the spiral of violence at the time of intense efforts to reach a ceasefire in Gaza and Israel,' Mr Ban said. 
    Speaking after a meeting with Mr Mursi, whose country is trying to forge a truce, he said: 'We all know there are many details to work out. But while that happens civilians continue to die.'
    Mrs Clinton and Mr Ban have been shuttling between Egypt, Israel and the West Bank in a bid to bolster a proposed ceasefire agreement that Cairo brokered between Israel and the Hamas movement that controls the Gaza Strip. 
    Earlier, at least 10 people were injured after the explosion ripped through the bus in which they were travelling through the heart of Tel Aviv.
     


      The bomb blast shattered windows on the bus which was driving along a street running close to Israel's defence headquarters.
      Israel's ambulance service said three of the wounded were in a moderate-to-serious condition and there was reportedly a second device but that failed to detonate.
      Police cleared the area shortly after the bomb went off and were carrying out investigations on the wreckage of the vehicle.
      'A bomb exploded on a bus in central Tel Aviv. This was a terrorist attack. Most of the injured suffered only mild injuries,' said Ofir Gendelman, a spokesman for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

      In a message on Twitter, he said police were combing the area for the person who planted the device, apparently confirming reports that it was not a suicide attack. 
      Israel and the U.S. branded it a terrorist attack, and a White House statement reaffirmed Washington's 'unshakeable commitment to Israel's security'.
      The explosion, which police said was caused by a bomb placed on the vehicle, touched off celebratory gunfire from militants in Gaza .
      Israeli media said a man had been arrested. The last terror attack in Tel Aviv was in 2006. 
      In response, Israel bombed the Yarmouk sports stadium in Gaza City, causing casualties and damage. According to initial Palestinian reports, at least two people were wounded. 
      Also on today, the IDF said it bombed more than 40 tunnels along the Gaza-Egypt border used by militants to smuggle weapons into the territory.

      Overnight, Israel carried out more than 30 Israeli airstrikes over Gaza that hit government ministries, smuggling tunnels, a banker's empty villa and a Hamas-linked media office. 
      Meanwhile, a UN aid agency says some 10,000 Gazans have sought shelter in UN-run schools after the Israeli military dropped leaflets on the territory warning residents of certain areas to evacuate their homes. 
      Adnan Abu Hassna, spokesman for the UN Relief and Works Agency, said that 12 schools are providing shelter. 
      He says the influx began yesterday evening, after Israel dropped the leaflets over Gaza. The Israeli military has not given a reason for the warning, but many here fear it is the prelude to a possible ground offensive.
      UN compounds are seen as safer than ordinary homes, though some were also hit in 2009.
      Speaking alongside Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Mrs Clinton had promised to work with Israel 'toward an outcome that bolsters security for the people of Israel, improves conditions for the people of Gaza, and moves toward a comprehensive peace for all people of the region.'
      Mrs Clinton has indicated it could take some time to iron out an agreement after more than a week of bitter fighting.
      It was a violent night along the Gaza Strip, as Israeli aircraft pounded the region with at least 30 strikes overnight, hitting government ministries, smuggling tunnels, a banker's empty villa and a Hamas-linked media office located two floors above the office of the French news agency, Agence France-Presse.
      ‘I grabbed my cameras and left the office with the fixer and there was smoke in the hallways…We ran out of the building,’ one AFP photographer told Al Jazeera.

      The website reports that the Israeli military has attacked some 1,450 targets since the fight began almost a week ago. 
      Israel launched a Gaza air offensive a week ago to counter the threat of cross-border guerrilla rockets and has massed troops and tanks in a threat to escalate to a ground war.
      'If there is a possibility of achieving a long-term solution to this problem with diplomatic means, we prefer that,' Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said alongside Mrs Clinton.
      'But if not, I'm sure you understand that Israel will have to take whatever action is necessary to defend its people.'
      Egypt has been trying to broker a truce in the conflict and this morning it was reported that Israel has put plans for a ground operation in Gaza 'on hold' while talks to secure a truce with Hamas militants continue.

      Speaking to reporters in the Nile Delta city of Zagazig, Mr Morsi did not provide any evidence to support his prediction only saying negotiations between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers will yield 'positive results.'
      This development arrived as explosions terrorise both Palestinians and Israelis for a seventh day running as Israel put plans for a ground operation in Gaza 'on hold' while talks to secure a truce with Hamas militants continued.
      While it is understood a Thursday deadline has been set for the Egypt-brokered talks, an Egyptian intelligence source said 'there is still no breakthrough and Egypt is working to find middle ground.'
      From Egypt, U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon said he came to the region because of the 'alarming situation.'
      'This must stop, immediate steps are needed to avoid further escalation, including a ground operation,' Ban said. 'Both sides must hold fire immediately ... Further escalation of the situation could put the entire region at risk.'

      AT A DEADLOCK: WHAT DO ISRAEL AND HAMAS WANT?

      • Israel and Gaza's militant Hamas rulers have staked tough, hard-to-bridge positions, and the gaps fuel the threat of an Israeli ground invasion.
      • The content of the Egyptian plan is unknown, but both Israel and Hamas have presented conditions and Egyptian intelligence officials are meeting representatives from Israel and Hamas separately. 
      • Israel - concentrating on arms and weaponry demands
      • Israel demands an end to rocket fire from Gaza and a halt to weapons smuggling into Gaza through tunnels under the border with Egypt.
      • It also wants international guarantees that Hamas will not rearm or use Egypt's Sinai region, which abuts both Gaza and southern Israel, to attack Israelis.
      • Hamas - wants attacks halted and restrictions lifted
      • Hamas wants Israel to halt all attacks on Gaza and lift tight restrictions on trade and movement in and out of the territory that have been in place since Hamas seized Gaza by force in 2007.
      • Israel has rejected such demands in the past.
      Before today's change in schedule, deputy White House national security adviser said Mrs Clinton would begin by meeting with Mr Netanyahu in Jerusalem, then she would meet with senior officials of the Palestinian government in the West Bank before heading to Cairo to meet with Egyptian leaders.
      The U.S. considers Hamas, which has killed hundreds of Israelis in suicide and other attacks, to be a terror group and does not meet with its officials. 
      The Obama administration blames Hamas for the latest eruption of violence and says Israel has the right to defend itself. At the same time, it has warned against a ground invasion, saying it could send casualties spiraling.
      The conflict erupted last week, when a resurgence in rocket fire from Gaza provoked Israel to strike back, killing Hamas' military chief in an air attack and carrying out hundreds of assaults on militants' underground rocket launchers and weapons stores.
      The onslaught abruptly turned deadlier over the weekend as aircraft were ordered to go after Hamas military commanders and buildings suspected of housing their commands and weapons caches.
      In the narrow alleys and warrens of crowded Gaza, where militants often operate from residential areas, civilian casualties mounted.
      By Tuesday, civilians accounted for 54 of the 113 Palestinians killed since Operation Pillar of Defence began last Wednesday.
      Some 840 people have been wounded, including 225 children, Gaza health officials said.
      Today Israel's military targeted about 100 sites in Gaza, including ammunition stores and the Gaza headquarters of the National Islamic Bank.
      Gaza's Hamas-run Health Ministry said six Palestinians were killed.
      Israeli police said more than 60 rockets were fired from Gaza by mid-day, and 25 of the projectiles were intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome system.
      Their military said an officer was wounded.
      Israel and Gaza's militant Hamas rulers have staked tough, hard-to-bridge positions, and the gaps keep fueling the threat of an Israeli ground invasion.
      The content of the Egyptian peace plan is unknown, but both Israel and Hamas have presented conditions and Egyptian intelligence officials are meeting representives from Israel and Hamas separately.  
      Israel demands an end to rocket fire from Gaza and a halt to weapons smuggling into Gaza through tunnels under the border with Egypt.
      It also wants international guarantees that Hamas will not rearm or use Egypt's Sinai region, which abuts both Gaza and southern Israel, to attack Israelis.

      Early Tuesday, Israeli aircraft targeted another Hamas symbol of power, battering the headquarters of the bank senior Hamas officials set up to sidestep international sanctions on the militant group's rule. 
      After Hamas violently overran Gaza in June 2007, foreign lenders stopped doing business with the militant-led Gaza government, afraid of running afoul of international terror financing laws.

      The inside of the bank, which was set up by leading Hamas members and describes itself as a private enterprise, was destroyed.
      Owner Suleiman Tawil, 31, grimly surveyed the damage to his store and six company cars. 'I'm not involved in politics,' he said. 'I'm a businessman. But the more the Israelis pressure us, the more we will support Hamas.'
      Fuad Hijazi and two of his toddler sons were killed Monday evening when missiles struck their one-story shack in northern Gaza, leaving a crater about two to three meters (seven to 10 feet) deep in the densely populated neighborhood. Residents said the father was not a militant.

      On Tuesday morning, the boys' bodies lay next to each other on a rack in the local morgue, wrapped tightly in white burial shrouds. Their father lay in a rack below.
      'We want to tell the world which is supporting the state of Israel, what this state is doing,' said neighbor Rushdie Nasser. 
      'They are supporting a state that kills children ... We want to send a message to the U.N. and the West: Enough of supporting the Zionists, who are killing children.'

      Three Israeli civilians have also been killed and dozens wounded since the fighting began last week, the numbers possibly kept down by a rocket-defense system that Israel developed with U.S. funding. 
      More than 1,000 rockets have been fired at Israel this week, the military said, including three that struck schools that had been emptied because of the fighting.

      Red faces at the BBC after reporter tweets 'heartbreaking photo of child hurt by Israeli rocket' which is actually a girl in Syria



      • Correspondent Jon Donnison's tweet implied injured girl was from Gaza 
      • Apologised for the error after it was picked up on by other Twitter users




      A BBC war reporter made a shocking blunder by tweeting a photograph of an injured child from Syria but indicating she was from Gaza.
      Gaza correspondent Jon Donnison added 'Heartbreaking' to the front of a message he retweeted from a Palestinian 'journalist and social activist' named Hazem Balousha.
      Balousha had posted a picture of a young girl lying on a hospital bed with bloodied clothes, along with the words 'Pain in #Gaza'.
      Blunder: This tweet from Jon Donnison caused outrage because the girl pictured was from Syria but it was implied she came from Gaza

      Donnison's tweet went out to his 7,971 followers on the social networking site and he was soon hit with a barrage of outraged responses highlighting the mistake.
      The website bbcwatch.org highlighted the error and wrote: 'Up to now, it may have been possible to put down Jon Donnison’s frequently problematic reporting to a lack of knowledge and understanding of the region.
       
      'However, his decision to promote deliberate misinformation – either knowingly or as a result of a complete failure to check facts – indicates that he is not merely naive. 
      'Donnison has rendered himself no longer fit for the purpose of accurate and impartial reporting from the Middle East in accordance with the BBC’s legal obligations.'

      Donnison apologised for the gaffe, tweeting: 'A photo I retweeted from another journo showing children injured was not in Gaza as I said but apparently from Syria. Apologies.'
      A BBC News spokesperson said: 'Jon Donnison retweeted the photograph in good faith. He issued a correction and apologised as soon as he learned that the picture was not from Gaza.'
      This is the latest in a string of embarrassing incidents for the BBC, in which the most high-profile has been the Lord McAlpine Newsnight scandal.  
      But Chris Doyle, director of the Council for Arab-British understanding, replied to the apology by saying that it was also good to highlight the distress caused in Syria by the conflict.

      Violence continued in the region with six men accused of being 'Israeli spies' dragged through the streets of Gaza City and executed before a chanting mob.
      Witnesses said the six were taken to an intersection in the north of the city where they were summarily shot for providing intelligence that helped Israel pinpoint key figures in Hamas and the Islamic Jihad targeted by their warplanes.
      The names of the men are said to have been scrawled on the road after they had been questioned by Hamas security officials about who provided the 'human intelligence' necessary to pinpoint targets for 'precision' attacks that have 118 Palestinians - half civilians, including women and children, dead - in seven days of military operations.
