2016-02-12 SYRIA: Fighting around Aleppo

2016-02-12 SYRIA: Fighting around Aleppo

KURDISH GIRLS KICK JIHADI ASS
Watch these awesome YPG girls - and boys - going after Sultan Erdogan-supported Jabhat al-Nusra out of the Menagh military airbase near the village of Manaq, in Aleppo governorate.
The YPG and its non-Kurdish allies captured the airbase two days ago, with crucial help from Russian airstrikes and some help from the SAA. Now the jihadis have lost the only military airport they held in Aleppo province.
No wonder Sultan Erdogan is freaking out like there's no tomorrow.
(Thanks, Aleksandra!)

2016-02-12 ISRAEL: Netanyahu consolidating "governance" in the "only democracy in the middle east"...

2016-02-12 ISRAEL: Netanyahu consolidating "governance" in the "only democracy in the middle east"...
====================
For years, Netanyahu has been complaining about deficiencies in "governance" in Israel, which prevent him from efficiently performing his job... But his inefficiency in performing his job may be related at least in part to his working environment... more specifically - his abusive, meddling wife...
Labor court ruling this week in favor of former manager of Netanyahu's official residence detailed abusive conduct of Sarah Netanyahu. Judge Dita Pruginin's judgment details “a bleak picture" regarding conditions in the official PM residence... It is only the latest in a long series abuse and meddling claims by those working for the Prime Minister. The First Lady has been rumored for years to be suffering from some behavioral disorder. It is also claimed that psychological incompetence has also been recently brought as defense in order to prevent her investigation on embezzlement of public property... With it, a whole cadre of PR staff and handlers have been busy for years, preventing full exposure of the matter. It is of critical public interest, since the First Lady is routinely involved in critical national decision making and staffing matters. For example, according to media she made a last minute decision to switch the appointment of the new Mossad head...
The picture under comment: Twitter message by Judy Moses-Nir-Shalom following the court ruling this week:
Dear Judge Dita Pruginin. Just wanted to let you know that in these very moments, a heavy dossier is assembled on you, your life history, relationships, skeletons in the closet, voting records, etc.
The sender is the wife of Netanyahu's former Deputy Prime Minister, and until recently Cabinet Minister. She is also a public figure in her own sake - media personality, member of the controlling family of one of Israel's few daily newspapers, and widow of Amiran Nir - key figure in Iran-Contra, who died in a mysterious plane crash in Mexico years ago, surrounded by various conspiracy theories....
The sketch above provides at least a rough idea, or synopsis for the movie: "The only democracy in the middle east"...

Tamar Goldschmidt
אני מתרגמת את דבריו של עורך הדין של "הארגון לענייני אסירים ומשוחררים" هيئة شؤون الاسرى والمحررين, לואי עכה לאחר ביקור בכלא עופר:
"פשיטות, התעללות והתזת מים קרים על האסירים בשני אגפים בעופר - 11.2.2016:
עורך הדין של הארגון לענייני האסירים והמשוחררים, לואי עכה, מסר שהאסירים בשני האגפים, מספר 19 ו – 20, היו נתונים שלשום, יום שלישי, להתקפה מטורפת על ידי הסוהרים, שהתבטאה בפשיטת פתע, חיפושים לשם הפרובוקציה, שלוו בהתעללות באסירים, חיפוש בכליהם במטרה להשחיתם, והצפה של החדרים במים קרים.
לואי עכה הבהיר שכוחות גדולים של סוהרים נכנסו, התחילו לצרוח ולהכות בחוזקה בדלתות על מנת ליצור בהלה בקרב האסירים, דבר שדחף את האסירים להתנגד לפשיטה ולהשיב בצעקות ובתכביר (אמירת 'אלוהים גדול'). הדבר גרם לסוהרים להתיז בעזרת צינורות מים קרים שהציפו את חדרי האסירים וגרמו להורדת הטמפרטורות בצורה חדה.
לואי עכה הוסיף: המים הציפו את החדרים לגמרי. הבגדים, המזרונים והשמיכות נרטבו והיתה לכך השפעה גדולה על המצב הנפשי של האסירים, ויצירת לחץ עליהם.
לואי עכה הבהיר שאחד האגפים שפשטו עליו הוא אגף מספר 20, בו חיים ילדים וקטינים, שרבים מהם נפצעו. אחד מהם הוא הקטין חמזה אבו הליל מדורא חברון, שנפצע מהמקלות ומהאלות, וכן אבראהים אבו אסנינה שנפצע ברגלו, יוסף אלצבאח שנפצע בידו מאזיקי הפלסטיק, ועדי צביח שנפצע באפו כתוצאה מכך שנגרר והתחכך ברצפה. ובאגף האחר, האסיר החולה ת'אא'ר מצ'ינה הוכה בבטנו וכתוצאה מכך הועבר לבית החולים שערי צדק והוחזר לכלא בלילה.
לואי עכה ציין שהם נענשו בשלילת ארוחות, דבר שדחף את האסירים בשאר האגפים למחות על ידי דחית הארוחות והחזרתן עד שהענין הוסדר חלקית. בזמן הפשיטה תועדו רגליהם של סוהרים דרוזים קורעים את דפי הקוראן."
هيئة الأسرى: " إقتحامات وتنكيل ورش الأسرى بالماء البارد في قسمين في عوفر "
11.2.2016
أفاد محامي هيئة شؤون الأسرى والمحررين لؤي عكة، أن الأسرى في قسمي ( 19، 20)، تعرضوا الى هجمة مجنونة من قبل السجانين أول أمس الثلاثاء، تمثلت بإقتحام مفاجئ ومباغت وإجراء تفتيشات إستفزازية، رافقها التنكيل بالأسرى والعبث بمحتوياتهم وتعمد تخريبها، وإغراق الغرف بالماء البارد.
وأوضح عكة أن عملية الإقتحام تمت بدخول قوات كبيرة من السجانين، وباشروا بالصراخ والضرب على الأبواب بقوة، بهدف خلق حالة من الرعب في صفوف الأسرى، الأمر الذي دفعهم لرفض عملية الإقتحام والرد بالصراخ والتكبير، مما أدى الى لجوء السجانين الى إستخدام خراطيم تضخ ماء بارد، أغرقت غرف الأسرى في ظل تدني كبير لدرجات الحرارة، مضيفا
وأضاف عكة " لقد أغرقت المياة الغرف بالكامل، وتبللت الملابس واماكن النوم من فرشات وأغطية، وكان لهذا تأثير كبير على الوضع النفسي للأسرى، وشكل ضغط كبير عليهم".
وبين عكة بأن أحد الأقسام التى تم إقتحامها وهو قسم 20 يعيش فيه أشبال (أطفال قصر)، وتعرض العديد منهم للإصابة كالشبل حمزه ابو هليل من دورا الخليل اصيب من العصي والهراوات، وابراهيم ابو اسنينه إصابة بالقدمو يوسف الصباح جرح بيده بسبب القيود البلاستيكية، وعدي صبيح إصابة بالأنف نتيجة سحبه واحتكاكه في الارض، وفي القسم الآخر تعرض الأسير المريض ثائر مضية الى ضربة على البطن نقل على إثرها الى مستشفى شعاري تصيدق وأعيد الى السجن ليلا.
وأشار عكة الى أنه تم محاربة الأقسام بحرمانها من وجبات الطعام، فدفع ذلك الأسرى في بقية الأقسام الى الإحتجاج برفض وترجيع الوجبات حتى تم تسوية الموضوع جزئيا، كما تم خلال الإقتحام توثيق إقدام سجان درزي بتمزيق المصحف الشريف.
