Gaza: Human Shields | Al Jazeera World

 

For 50 days, more than 6,000 air strikes, 14,500 tanks shells and 45,000 artillery shells were fired on Gaza…

More than 2,200 Palestinians, including 551 children were killed…

  1. I didn’t even know the severity of Israel’s attack on Gaza that is right now ongoing. I thought they were reporting figures from a previous assault, as from 2014.
  2. The use of human shields by IDF is being censored from America audiences.
  3. Al Jazeera made the report but chose to self-censor in America rather than face the inevitable Israeli (and American/Israeli sympathizers’) backlash.

Recent Airstrike in Syria Shows Israelis Are Changing Tactics

 

There are also rumors going around that Russia and Syria have changed strategy with “new rules of engagement” to launch missiles directly at Israel if they attack Syria again. This is not confirmed by any officials so far.

The new Syrian rule of engagement – according to the source – is now as follows: an airport will be hit if Israel hits an airport, and any attack on a barracks or command and control centre will result in an attack on similar target in Israel. It appears that the decision has been taken at the highest level and a clear “bank of objectives” has now been set in place.

‘Never mind the US, Russia’s the one losing patience over Syria ceasefire chaos’ – Chief of Staff

This follows the news that Washington has attempted to protect terror group AL NUSRAH FRONT by keeping its so-called “moderate” terrorists in the same locations, using them as human shields to protect AL QAEDA terrorists from aerial bombing.

Folks, this is what your “leaders” are actually doing in Syria today.

The Russian military says Washington still won’t provide a list of groups it considers terrorist, allowing jihadists to regroup and escape Russian-led air raids on their positions, the head of the Russian General Staff said.

“The move could potentially put the American troops in the cross hairs of Russia,” reports the New York Times.
US Special Forces deployed as ‘human shields’ to salvage terror assets in Syria

Last week, America’s top military official, General Joseph F Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a Senate committee that Russia’s air support had changed everything. “The balance of forces right now are in Assad’s advantage,” he said.

This is the context in which to interpret the latest, surprise move by Obama to send Special Forces into Syria. It is more about inhibiting Russian success in destroying the sundry anti-regime forces on the ground than about either “helping the fight against Islamic State” as claimed, or about misgivings of a large-scale American invasion.

…This perspective most likely explains the hastily convened “peace conference” in Vienna. US Secretary of State John Kerry’s apparent concernto “stop the bloodshed” does not seem credible as the primary motive.

…According to senior Syrian army intelligence, up to 500 mercenaries were flown to Yemen onboard Turkish, Qatari and Emirati planes.
