120 countries voted on Wednesday to pass a UN resolution which condemns Israel’s ‘extensive use of force’ against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. The resolution includes a recommendation to UN chief Antonio Guterres to dispatch an “international protective mechanism” to Gaza.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said in a letter that he “expresses thanks and appreciation to the members of the UN that voted for the resolution to provide international protection for the Palestinian nation.” In a statement today (Thursday), he said that the resolution was “a victory for Palestinian rights, justice and international law.”

JERUSALEM, Israel – Palestinian jihadists in the Gaza Strip set more than 40 fires over the weekend using incendiary kites carrying explosives and burning fuel.
This latest “technique,” which began with the “Great March of Return” launched two months ago, has continued almost daily since then. The “terror kites” have started more than 350 fires that have burned up 7,000+ acres of agricultural land, groves and nature reserves and caused tens of millions of shekels in damage.
Firefighting crews battled blazes along the border with Gaza throughout the weekend, including massive fires in the Shokeda and Simchoni forests. The Israeli Nature and Parks Authority said fire destroyed a third – 75 acres of the 275-acre – Karmiya nature reserve. It took most of the day to bring the massive blaze under control, even with the help of firefighting aircraft… more

The United States called this meeting today to talk about the dangerous and destructive activities of the terrorist organization Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

While knives, car rammings, and bullets are often seen as the modern weapons of choice in Palestinian terrorism against Israel, according to agriculturalists and Israeli NGOs, trees could be the greatest threat to ensuring the future of Israel.
According to Regavim International Division Director Naomi Kahn, Israel is being blocked out of its own land in a “silent conquest.” The Palestinian Authority has been illegally planting trees in Area C, land under full Israeli control, with millions of euros financial backing from the European Union (EU) and a Norwegian NGO, which has affiliations with The Popular Front for the liberation of Palestine (a terrorist organization as described by Israel, the United States Canada, Australia, and even the EU itself)…. more
