Israeli airstrikes hit Gaza Hamas sites after rocket attack

More than 30 Israelis have died in these attacks while more than 200 Palestinians have been killed, many in the act of carrying out assaults.

Speaking before nighttime prayer in a mosque in the Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza, the former Gaza prime minister said Hamas was not afraid of Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman.

In an interview with AFP, Mladenov said he hoped the report would prompt both sides and world leaders to take action to revive the peace process. Since October, Israelis have been targets of nearly daily attacks by knife-wielding Palestinians or by Palestinian drivers seeking to run down pedestrians.

Israel says the violence is fueled by a Palestinian campaign of lies and incitement, compounded on social media sites that glorify attacks. The Palestinian leadership has blamed frustration rooted in decades of Israeli occupation.

"The Palestinian authority should act decisively and take all steps within its capacity to cease incitement to violence and strengthen ongoing efforts to combat terrorism, including by clearly condemning all acts of terrorism", the draft Quartet report said.

Then Israel and U.S. in one colonialist voice call the Palestinians who have been the victims of Zionist terror attacks, the terrorists and seek more terror goods from US and Europe.

Worldwide mediators trying to promote Mideast peace warned in a highly anticipated report Friday that Israel's settlement expansion is eroding the viability of a Palestinian state and raises "legitimate questions" about its commitment to a two-state solution. Unbridled Israeli hostilities have forced millions of Palestinians to live as refugees in other countries while those who opted not to leave their land continue to courageous inhuman Israeli atrocities on daily basis with no rescue in sight.

Jamal Crawford goes back to Clippers
Sam Amick of USA Today reported Sunday that Crawford and the Clippers agreed to terms on a three-year contract worth $42 million. If Crawford stays, they can keep their makeshift backcourt intact and maybe get one buy-low guy for one of the other holes.

"The Palestinians must understand that worldwide initiatives will not bring peace to the Middle East", he said.

No casualties were reported, a medical source said on condition of anonymity.

Israel should implement positive and significant policy shifts, including transferring powers and responsibilities in Area C, consistent with the transition to greater Palestinian civil authority contemplated by prior agreements.

The draft report said Israel had taken for its exclusive use some 70 percent of Area C, which makes up 60 percent of the occupied West Bank and includes the majority of agricultural lands, natural resources and land reserves.

Hebron, a stronghold of the Islamist movement Hamas and a powder keg in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, is a city where 500 Israeli settlers live among Palestinians behind barbed-wire, observation towers and under army protection. The settlements are considered illegal under global law, though Israel disputes this.

On Friday, the Middle East diplomatic quartet which is supporting Israel and has done nothing to end the Zionist crimes against humanity but only said that the "lack of control of Gaza by the Palestinian Authority, and the dire humanitarian situation" were feeding "instability and ultimately impede efforts to achieve a negotiated solution".
