    I refer to Dr J. Ranasooriya’s letter of July 26. I wrote that the Saudi Arabian authorities don’t allow the building of non-Muslim religious edifices in their country because they conceive of it as having a very special relation with Islam for obvious historical reasons. I was making a statement of fact, without implying in any way that the Saudi practice should be emulated elsewhere. I also wrote that I was certain...

  • Israel intensifies Gaza attacks after Netanyahu warning
    Gaza has seen one of its heaviest nights of bombardment in three weeks, after Israel's prime minister warned of a long conflict ahead. Gaza's only power plant was damaged as Israel carried out 60 air strikes, also targeting sites associated with Hamas, the group which controls Gaza. At least 60 people died in Gaza, possibly including UN staff members. An Israeli military spokesman said the strikes signalled a "gradual increase in the pressure" on Hamas. In a televised address on Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stressed the need to destroy tunnels dug under the Gaza-Israel border, to prevent militants infiltrating Israel. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon expressed concern that Israel was reported to be dropping leaflets warning residents in northern Gaza to leave. Jump media player

  • Hamas rejects Gaza truce unless blockade ends
    Hamas has rejected a ceasefire to end the 16-day offensive against Gaza unless Israel ends its blockade of the strip, its leader Khaled Meshaal has said. "We reject today... and will reject in the future" a ceasefire before negotiations on Hamas's demands, which include lifting years of blockade against the Palestinian enclave, Meshaal told journalists in Doha, Qatar's capital. Lifting the eight-year blockade is a main demand of Hamas which also wants the opening of the Rafah border crossing with Egypt and Israel to free prisoners. Meshaal's statement came as the UN Human Rights Council voted to launch an independent inquiryinto Israel's offensive. 

    As international calls for an end to the fighting in Gaza mount, Meshaal said that Hamas "welcomes all efforts to end the aggression"...
  • Israeli shelling kills scores in eastern Gaza
    Israeli attacks have killed 97 people in the Gaza Strip, raising the overall Palestinian death toll to 435 since the start of a major military campaign on July 8, Palestinian health officials say, as the military wing of Hamas claims it has abducted an Israeli soldier.

    The vast majority of Sunday's dead were in Shujayea, a district between Gaza City and the Israeli border, with at least 60 people killed there in an intense bombardment which began overnight. Besides Shujayea, where bodies littered the streets, the worst hit neighbourhoods were al-Shaaf and al-Tuffa. A Shujayea resident who reached a hospital told Al Jazeera: "It is a massacre taking place in Shujayea. It is a massacre - in the full sense of the word - committed by Israel against innocent civilians. There are no armed men among us. The streets of Shujayea are packed with dead bodies." At least 250 others were wounded in Sunday's barrage, raising the overall Palestinian injury toll during the 13 days of violence...
  • Toll mounts as Israel shells northern Gaza
    Israel has announced the deaths of two of its soldiers on the second day of a ground offensive into Gaza that it says is aimed at destroying Hamas' cross-border tunnels. At least 34 Palestinians also died on Saturday, the second day of the Israeli ground invasion, as Israel intensified its shelling by tanks and artillery of the northern Gaza Strip. Al Jazeera's John Hendren, reporting from Jerusalem, said the two soldiers were killed during an exchange of gunfire as they fought Palestinians in tunnels near the Israeli Gaza border. The two were the first Israeli soldiers to die in this recent escalation while fighting the Palestinians. The two Israeli solders were killed on Friday, one in an incident of friendly tank fire and another in an accident in a tunnel. During the exchange in which the soldiers were killed, a Palestinian fighter also died and several others escaped back into a tunnel into Gaza, our correspondent said. Earlier on Saturday, an Israeli Bedouin was killed when a...

The prime minister's office also said that the Israeli military was "prepared for an expansion of the ground action". More than 230 Palestinians, including 39 children, have been killed in Israel's 10-day military operation in Gaza, and another 1,700 Palestinians have been injured. One Israeli has died.

  • Press Release: NSC Condemns Israeli Atrocities in Gaza
      ​​ 16-07-2014
    Press Statement:
    National Shoora Council Condemns the Israeli policy of periodic massacres  of Palestinians:
    While welcoming the Israeli offer of a ceasefire  after its relentless week ​ ​ long aerial bombing of the densely populated Gaza strip which resulted in the deaths of around 200 Palestinians, the National Shoora Council    vehemently condemns the Israeli policy of periodic massacres  of Palestinians  particularly in the Gaza strip.  
    This is the third such carnage in Gaza.  The first was in 2008/2009 followed by a similar attack in 2012 during which innocent men, women, children and the aged were massacred together with destruction of property.
    The irony is that in the face of Israeli war crimes the whole world, including the United States, the United Kingdom which planted Israel in the heart of the Middle East, and Europe have become helpless spectators.
