Air strikes kill ‘al-Qaeda fighters’ in Yemen

leave a comment »

 

Several alleged al-Qaeda leaders among 11 killed in apparent drone attacks, according to local residents’ accounts.

At least 11 fighters with alleged links to al-Qaeda have been killed in an air strike in Yemen, according to local residents and tribal officials.

Local residents told the Reuters news agency on Tuesday that an unidentified drone carried out the attack on two vehicles travelling east of the city of Loder in Abyan province in southern Yemen.

A tribal leader said at least four of those killed were local al-Qaeda leaders, according to Reuters.

Tribal officials speaking to the AFP news agency reported four raids in which up to 15 people were killed.

“We think they were carried out by American planes,” a tribal official told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity and without elaborating.

Three of the raids targeted a school in which al-Qaeda fighters and local fighters were meeting around midnight, while a fourth strike targeted an al-Qaeda control post, sources told AFP.

Al-Qaeda-linked groups have reportedly used Yemen’s political turmoil to gain foothold in the south of the Arabian Peninsula country.

De oorzaak van het gedrag van Marokkaanse jongeren / Interactieve lezing

    • donderdag 23 februari 2012
    • Tijd
      16:00 tot 18:00
  • Waar
    Volgt bij aanmelding, Centrum, Rotterdam, Netherlands

  • Ruim 20 jaar wordt er al gediscussieerd over over het niet ‘willen/kunnen’ slagen van de integratie van de Marokkaanse gemeenschap in de Nederlandse samenleving. Met name de jongeren worden vaak alszijnde de oorzaak van het probleem betiteld.
    Al die jaren (vanaf 1994) onderzoek/ volg ik dit onderwerp. Vooral bij de laatste bijeenkomst “Marokkaanse jongeren, toolkit voor jongerenwerkers” bij InHolland in Rotterdam, ergerde ik me wederom rot, omdat ik het gevoel had dat we op de huidige manier geen stap verder komen. Er is maar weinig in de laatste 20 jaar tijd veranderd. In het panel zaten experts, Doctoren en anders…, maar op de vraag of iemand de oorzaak het gedrag van de jongeren écht kent?, werd het doodstil op het podium en in de zaal.

    Met de kennis van nu, snap ik meer van toen. Ik nodig u uit, om mijn kennis en praktijkervaring met u te delen. Middels een interactieve lezing wil ik samen met u een beweging maken naar de begrijpbaarheid, over de oorzaak van het gedrag van deze jongeren. Daarnaast zouden de Nederlanders onder ons ook mogen inzien, dat er nog veel winst bij hen zelf te behalen valt.

    Ik hoop u te mogen begroeten!

    Sidi Amine

    De lezing wordt georganiseerd door Stichting Marokkanenbrug.

    We vragen een kleine entreevergoeding van € 10,00, teneinde de kosten van deze bijeenkomst te kunnen dekken.

Israeli forces shoot Palestinian near Gaza border

leave a comment »

Israeli soldiers are seen operating in the West Bank city of Qalqiliya
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian farmer on Tuesday east of Gaza City, medical officials and an Israeli military official said.

Emergency services spokesman Adham Abu Salmiya said the farmer, who was not identified, suffered a gunshot wound while tending his land east of Gaza City.

He was taken from the Shajaiyeh area to Shifa Hospital in Gaza City where he was determined to be moderately injured, Abu Salmiya said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed that forces stationed near the border fence shot a Palestinian man who approached the area in the northern Gaza Strip.

The official said forces first fired warning shots and then at the man’s lower body when he failed to respond. A direct hit was identified, but she said he left on his own.

She said the border area had been used in the past for planting explosives, “thereby endangering the citizens of Israel and the security forces operating in the area.”

Israel plans to confiscate 650 dunums in occupied Jerusalem

leave a comment »

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli planning and construction committee has decided to confiscate 650 dunums of land in occupied Jerusalem to establish two garbage dumps.

A researcher specialized in settlement activity, Ahmed Sub Laban, said that the first junkyard would be established on 500 dunums in the area between Enata and Aisawiya, describing the area as a valley 745 meters deep.

The other plan envisages seizing 150 dunums of land between Kafr Akab and Bir Nabala to the north of occupied Jerusalem to establish another rubbish dump, he added.

Another researcher, Amran Al-Resheq, said that the two garbage dumps would negatively affect the environment, adding that the Israeli occupation authority did not care less about the health of the Arab inhabitants.

Afghaan met puberkinderen mag blijven

leave a comment »

De Afghaan Abdul Momand en zijn twee puberkinderen met de Nederlandse nationaliteit kunnen in ons land blijven. Momand dreigde uitgezet te worden, maar minister Gerd Leers (Immigratie) maakt een uitzondering vanwege ‘individuele omstandigheden’, aldus een woordvoerder van het ministerie van Binnenlandse Zaken vandaag.

Als hij was uitgezet, had Momand noodgedwongen zijn kinderen moeten meenemen naar zijn land van herkomst. De Afghaanse man, die al 15 jaar in Nederland woont, kon ze niet achterlaten, omdat zijn vrouw in 2006 is overleden.

De kinderen, 15 en 16, spreken geen Afghaans. Momand kreeg tot drie keer toe van rechters te horen dat hij mocht blijven, maar kreeg eerder deze maand van de Immigratie- en Naturalisatie Dienst (IND) te verstaan dat hij toch moest vertrekken. Leers heeft zijn zogenoemde discretionaire bevoegdheid gebruikt om het oordeel van de IND te passeren.

Momand werkt al ruim 10 jaar als conciërge bij basisschool de Sint Michaël in Hazerswoude-Dorp. De school maakte zich hard voor de zaak en wilde via een juridische weg hun conciërge hier houden. Zowel de school als Momand reageerde verheugd op het nieuws.

‘Palestinian hunger striker’s life at risk’

with one comment

Palestinian activist Khader Adnan
The health condition of Palestinian activist Khader Adnan imprisoned by Israel is “deteriorating” after spending 44 days on hunger strike in jail.

The life of a Palestinian activist in an Israeli jail is reportedly in danger after 44 days of hunger strike which he began to protest his imprisonment.

“His health is deteriorating and his life will be in danger if he continues the hunger strike,” Tel Aviv-based Physicians for Human Rights said in a statement on Monday.

Khader Adnan, 34, kicked off the hunger strike a day after he was arrested by Israeli forces on December 17 2011. He has been held without trial ever since in what Israel calls “administrative detention”.

The Palestinian prisoners club, which monitors inmates’ wellbeing, said Adnan was taken by ambulance on Monday from Israel’s Ramla prison to a military court, where a hearing on his case was postponed until February 1.

Adnan was brutally beaten by the Israeli occupation forces and sustained injuries when Israeli forces raided his home outside the city of Jenin in the northern West Bank, a Press TV correspondent said.

Adnan has been sentenced to four months in jail.

Adnan is on hunger strike for several reasons as stated by him: he considers his detention a violation of his rights and identity; he protests the ill-treatment he suffered at the hands of the soldiers and interrogators, and he refuses to accept the unjust system of administrative detention.
