After Gaza flare-up, ministers hear war drums as army seeks return to calm-Bennett says war a ‘when, not if,’ but IDF says it doesn’t want an escalation in hostilities with Hamas after day of cross-border exchanges-By Judah Ari Gross February 7, 2017, 1:15 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Two Israeli ministers said another war in Gaza is on Israel’s horizon on Tuesday, following a tense day of IDF air and tank strikes in response to a rocket attack from the Strip on Monday morning, but the army stressed it had no interest in further conflict on the southern front.Education Minister Naftali Bennett said Tuesday that a war was “a matter of when, not if.”“In Gaza, they are continuing to threaten us and try to harm us,” Bennett said at a ceremony in southern Israel commemorating the death of an Israeli student killed by Hamas rocket fire in 2005.“Only with a total victory over our enemy will we put an end to this,” Bennett added.In a Tuesday morning interview on Army Radio, Housing Minister Yoav Galant, a former general, also said there was a chance of escalation and conflict with the Hamas terrorist group later this year.“The [current] reality, in my assessment, might lead to a situation in which Hamas is drawn to escalation in the spring or the summer,” said Galant, a former head of the army’s Southern Command.Galant’s predictions have not always been accurate. In April 2016, in another Army Radio interview, the minister predicted a war in Gaza that summer as well, but no such conflict occurred.The IDF, meanwhile, has sought to calm some of the tensions surrounding the Gaza Strip.“We have no interest in an escalation of violence, but are determined to fulfill our obligation and protect the people of Israel from attacks originating in Gaza,” army spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner told The Times of Israel.“The strikes yesterday against Hamas’ positions were a clear message that it is responsible for the attacks against Israel and will be held accountable,” he added.In response to the IDF strikes, the Hamas terrorist group said Monday it holds Israel “fully” responsible for any fallout or escalation in hostilities between the two sides.Hamas spokesperson Hazem Qassem also called on regional and international authorities to curb Israel’s “aggression.”On Monday morning, a rocket was fired from northern Gaza at Israel, striking an open field south of the city of Ashkelon. Later in the day, an IDF patrol was also fired upon near the security fence surrounding the coastal enclave. No Israelis were injured in the attacks.In response, the army targeted at least eight Hamas positions in the Strip, with both airstrikes and tank shellings.Two Palestinians were reportedly injured by shrapnel to an unknown degree, according to the Gaza health ministry.The army said its strikes were in response not only to Monday’s rocket attack and gunfire, but also to “other incidents from Gaza in the last month.” This was a reference to smaller-scale incidents that have occurred along the security fence surrounding the Strip.Following the 2014 Gaza war, which aimed to stem rocket fire from the Strip against Israeli towns, the rate of such attacks dwindled to, on average, one or two missiles per month.These rockets have been launched mainly by radical Salafist groups. But Israel sees Hamas, which has ruled the Strip for the past 10 years, as ultimately responsible for any any attacks coming from Gaza.In recent months, the IDF — under the direction of Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman — has adopted a harsher policy toward the sporadic rocket fire.The hawkish Liberman has promised that Israel will respond aggressively to rocket attacks in order to force Hamas to rein in the more extreme groups in the Gaza Strip.In a sense, these Palestinian rocket attacks also present the army with an opportunity. In its retaliations, the IDF is able to target key Hamas infrastructure which it otherwise might not have attacked, as the army’s policy has generally been only to respond, not initiate.This was the case on at least two occasions over the past year, in August and October, when Israeli aircraft launched dozens of airstrikes against Hamas infrastructure.In Israel’s retaliatory attacks on Monday, “three terrorist infrastructures” were struck, along with five other military positions belonging to the Hamas terrorist group” in the Strip, including a naval base in northern Gaza.The IDF would not specify the locations of the strikes, but Gaza-based media reported that Hamas positions in Jabaliya, al-Maghazi, Gaza City, Khan Younis and Juhor ad-Dik were targeted in the aerial bombardment.
Israel pounds Gaza, vows rocket fire won’t be tolerated-Planes, tanks bomb Hamas posts in Strip in response to rocket, small arms attacks as tensions mount along border-By Judah Ari Gross February 6, 2017, 6:15 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Israeli aircraft and tanks pounded Hamas targets in Gaza in a series of sorties Monday, after a rocket was shot into Israeli territory earlier in the day, as tensions with the volatile coastal enclave spiraled upwards.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel would not tolerate a “drizzle” of rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip “without a response,” as planes continued to strike targets in the Strip.The airstrikes and tank fire came after a rocket landed in an open field in southern Israel Monday morning. The day also saw an IDF patrol near the border fired upon.“My policy is to respond strongly to any rocket fire,” Netanyahu said from London, where he’s on a state visit. “We are firm in this response.”The Israel Defense Forces said it struck numerous Hamas positions in northern and central Gaza, including a naval base near the city of Jabaliya.In the latest incident on Monday evening, Israeli aircraft attacked “three terrorist infrastructures belonging to the Hamas terrorist group” in the Gaza Strip, the army said.The IDF would not specify the locations of the strikes, but Gaza-based media reported that Hamas positions in Gaza City, Khan Younis and Juhor ad-Dik were targeted in the aerial bombardment.Gazan health ministry spokesperson Dr. Ashraf al-Qidra said two Palestinians were injured by shrapnel from Israeli airstrikes in Khan Younis, located in southern Gaza. He did not specify the intensity of their injuries.The army said its strikes were in response not only to Monday’s rocket attack and gunfire, but also to “other incidents from Gaza in the last month.” This was an apparent reference to smaller scale incidents that have occurred along the security fence surrounding the Strip.IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said the army’s forceful response was meant to show Gaza-based terrorist groups that it will not stomach such attacks on Israel.“Twice Gaza terrorists breached Israeli sovereignty [and] jeopardized the wellbeing of civilians and troops,” Lerner told The Times of Israel. “This is a clear message that it’s just not acceptable.”In response to the IDF strikes, the Hamas terrorist group said it holds Israel “fully” responsible for any fallout or escalation in hostilities between the two sides.Hamas spokesperson Hazem Qassem also called on regional and international authorities to curb Israel’s “aggression.”The tense day began at 9 a.m., with a rocket attack fired from the northern Gaza Strip that struck an open field in the Hof Ashkelon region, just south of the coastal city of Ashkelon, causing no injuries or damage.Within minutes of the rocket impact, an IDF tank fired at and destroyed a Hamas position in the northwestern Gaza Strip, the army said.A few hours later, Israeli aircraft struck three more Hamas sites.According to the Palestinian al-Quds media outlet, one of the Hamas positions hit in the airstrikes was a naval base in the northwestern Gaza Strip.Palestinians in the Strip took to social media, posting pictures and videos of the Israeli airstrikes.— Kayid Alksise (@AlksiseKayid) February 6, 2017-Soon after the airstrikes, Israeli troops reported they came under fire along the security fence near the Israeli Kissufim community, prompting an IDF tank to shell a Hamas site in the central Strip.In addition, on Monday afternoon a Palestinian man was spotted crossing into Israel from Gaza. He was arrested by IDF troops a few hours later, in possession of a knife and a screwdriver, the army said.Earlier on Monday morning, Palestinian media reported that four Israeli engineering vehicles had crossed the border fence and cleared the buffer zone surrounding the Gaza Strip of obstructions.Following the 2014 Gaza war, the rocket fire directed towards Israel from the Strip has dwindled to, on average, one or two missiles per month.These have been launched mostly by radical salafist groups, not by Hamas. However, Israel sees the Sunni terrorist group, which has ruled the Strip for the past 10 years, as ultimately responsible for any rocket fire emanating from the Gaza Strip.In recent months, the IDF — under the direction of Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman — has adopted a harsher policy towards that sporadic rocket fire.The hawkish Liberman has promised that Israel will respond aggressively to rocket attacks, in order to force Hamas to rein in the more extreme groups in the Gaza Strip. On at least two occasions, the IDF carried out dozens of airstrikes on Hamas positions in response to rocket fire from Gaza.In a sense, these Palestinian attacks present the army with an opportunity. In its retaliations, the IDF is able to target key Hamas infrastructure, which it otherwise might not have attacked.Monday morning’s rocket alert siren sounded in Zikim and Karmiya, in the Hof Ashkelon region, sending residents scurrying for shelter.Army spokesman Lerner said the sirens “disrupted the daily lives of Israelis.”“The IDF will not tolerate rocket fire toward civilians and will continue to ensure security and stability in the region,” he said in a statement.The rocket strike from Gaza came two days after a top explosives expert for Hamas’s armed wing was killed in a mysterious explosion.Last month, the incoming rocket alert system went off in the communities of Ein Hashlosha and Nirim, but it was later found to have been a false alarm.Dov Lieber and Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.
UN: Israel outpost law crosses ‘thick red line’-French FM calls outpost bill ‘a blow to the two-state solution’ after world body says it may lead to full annexation of West Bank-By AFP and Times of Israel staff February 7, 2017, 4:14 pm
A new Israeli law legalizing dozens of Jewish outposts built on private Palestinian land crossed a “thick red line” toward annexation of the West Bank, the United Nations said Tuesday.The Knesset late Monday passed the so-called Regulation Law, which allows the appropriation of 16 parcels of private Palestinian land for Israeli settlement outposts in the West Bank, in a move the Palestinians condemned as a means to “legalize theft.”UN envoy for the Middle East peace process Nickolay Mladenov said the bill set a “very dangerous precedent.”“This is the first time the Israeli Knesset legislates in the occupied Palestinian lands and particularly on property issues,” he told AFP.“That crosses a very thick red line.”Some members of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing government have called for the annexation of much of the West Bank, a move that critics say would end any hope of a two-state solution with an independent Palestinian state.“[The law] opens the potential for the full annexation of the West Bank and therefore undermines substantially the two-state solution,” Mladenov added.He also raised the possibility the law could open Israel up to potential prosecution at the International Criminal Court, a risk the Israel’s attorney general has warned of, as has Netanyahu despite his support of the bill.The new law will allow Israel to appropriate Palestinian private land on which Israelis had built outposts without knowing it was private property, if they received government support for the move.The Palestinian landowners will be compensated financially or with other land.The law could still be challenged, with Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman saying last week it was likely to be struck down by the High Court.Mladenov called for strong international condemnation of the legislation but declined to criticize the United States after President Donald Trump’s administration refused to comment on it.“I think that is a very preliminary statement,” Mladenov said. “Obviously they do need to consult, this is a new administration that has just come into office and they should be given the time and the space to find their policies.”France also voiced its strong disapproval of the law on Tuesday, with French Foreign Minister Jean Marc Ayrault saying in a statement that “the law constitutes a blow to the two-state solution.”“This law in particular perpetuates the existence of dozens of settlements and outposts and gives them a legal basis for future development,” Ayrault said, predicting that the bill “will likely intensify tensions in the area.”“I call on Israel to respect its international obligations and to turn back from this law,” Ayrault said.“This law in particular perpetuates the existence of dozens of settlements and outposts and gives them a legal basis for future development,” Ayrault said, adding that it violates December’s United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334, which labeled Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem as a “flagrant violation under international law” with “no legal validity.”
Abbas condemns outpost law as an ‘attack on Palestinians’-PA president says he will ‘work with the international courts’ to fight Israel settlement building in the West Bank; UN envoy says legislation crosses ‘thick red line’-By Raoul Wootliff February 7, 2017, 1:50 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Abbas calls outpost law an ‘attack’ on Palestinians-Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas calls the new Israeli law legalizing dozens of Jewish outposts built on private Palestinian land an “attack against our people” and promises to fight it in “international courts.”“This legislation in contrary to international law. We will continue our work with the international courts to protect our existence and our survival on Palestinian land,” Abbas says during a press conference in Paris, following a meeting with French President Francois Hollande.— with AFP.
Outpost-Zionism-Papers disagree on whether the controversial Regulation Law is the realization of the Israeli dream or a political game. Maybe the court can decide that too-By Joshua Davidovich February 7, 2017, 4:39 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
After weeks of hype and coverage from every angle and then some, the controversial bill legalizing outposts built unknowingly on private Palestinian land made it into law late Monday, and papers are already chomping at the bit to preview the next fights over the law Tuesday morning, as well as mop up Monday night’s remaining donnybrooks.“Now to the High Court,” screams a headline on the front page of Yedioth Ahronoth. Unfortunately, the paper offers little on what the court battle will entail, writing only that “one assumes that Palestinians whose land is slated to be expropriated from them will petition the High Court against the law and thus will begin another battle between the Knesset and the Supreme Court.”Reporting on the actual vote, the paper also includes various high jinks, such as protesters being booted for waving black flags after the measure passed and Knesset guards trying to hunt down a weed-smoking aide as the smell of marijuana wafted through the parliament’s august halls during the debate.As high as the grass-smoker got, there’s no way he could have gotten higher than Jewish Home head Naftali Bennett, who can show off the law to his voting base as a major victory.Haaretz reports, though, that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu still tried to harsh his mellow Monday.“Bennett sought to address the Knesset during the deliberation on the bill, but was rebuffed by the Prime Minister’s Office. Sources in the Knesset claimed that PMO officials feared that Bennett would claim credit for the bill’s passage in the absence of Netanyahu, on his way back to Israel after meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May in London,” the paper reports.But even if Netanyahu won a point against Bennett, it’s clear to see Bennett came away from the affair looking like a formidable foe, and the broadsheet’s lead editorial writes that that doesn’t bode well for the prime minister.“It’s quite possible that he will pay a heavy diplomatic price for being unable to withstand pressure. If Netanyahu can’t stand up to Bennett, how will he represent Israel’s interests vis a vis its enemies? How does his flaccidity before a coalition rival make him look to leaders like US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin? And most important of all, what kind of leader is willing to work against the interests of his country just because he fears for his political life,” the paper writes.The law may be struck down, but Israel Hayom’s Haim Shine doesn’t see it as the stillborn child of political jockeys but rather the fruit of Israel’s very womb. Calling its passage a historic day, Shine’s column compares it to Israel’s conquering of the West Bank and Jerusalem in 1967.“The Knesset said with a loud voice that Israel’s settlers and redeemers are pioneers making the Zionist vision a reality,” he writes. “A clear statement on our basic right to the Land of Israel, a right that many nations have denied, including an attempt to claim we have no link to Jerusalem. The statement yesterday was made in a pure voice that will echo throughout the world. We do not apologize on our return against all odds.”One man’s vision is another’s Band-aid, which is what Yoaz Hendel calls the bill in an op-ed for Yedioth, in which he accuses the government of lacking an actual plan.“In a decade, the cabinet hasn’t had a single discussion of the future of the West Bank. That’s amazing when you think about the amount of time devoted to a small settlement like Amona or nine homes in Ofra. Dozens of hours of talks, but not once has the government or cabinet sat and decided what their goal is for the West Bank,” he writes.That dithering was also evident as Netanyahu met with UK counterpart Theresa May on Monday, both as he stood awkwardly outside the street of 10 Downing Street (captured on Yedioth’s front page) and as he met with the British leader, according to Haaretz, which reports that he “refused to commit to a two-state solution.”“Netanyahu told May that he shares her desire for peace in the region, but avoided voicing an explicit support of the two-state solution,” the paper reports.Israel Hayom’s view of the meeting is a mirror-image of Haaretz’s, with a headline proudly showcasing Netanyahu’s statement that the two “see eye to eye on Iran.”“We see eye to eye on the great danger coming from Iran’s strengthening and aggression and from its spread throughout the region. We had a discussion over what will happen if Iran’s aggression doesn’t stop,” the paper quotes Netanyahu saying. “We also spoke about Syria, Hezbollah and the Iranian army there. We agreed that it’s important to halt that situation in different ways.”One subject the two apparently didn’t discuss was Hamas, but the Gaza-ruling terror group made its way onto front pages anyway after a day of cross-border exchanges with the Israeli army brought on by a rocket attackfrom the Strip that was met by several waves of Israeli airstrikes.In Yedioth, Yossi Yehoshua pulls the same tired analysis out of his back pocket saved for any time there’s a flare-up, giving a roundup of possible scenarios and writing that nobody wants an escalation in hostilities, but it can happen anyway. However, he also notes that unlike past incidents in which Israel hit Gaza hard for a single rocket attack, this time it was slightly different.“This time they didn’t hit quality targets as they did a few months ago, those that Israel sees – in the context of risk-management – as ones which they must take into account that can break the calm if they hit them,” he writes. “Sometimes an escalation gets out of hand even if both sides don’t want it to. Thus it’s recommended to act with caution, even if we think we know everything.”

Iran official: Missiles need only 7 minutes to hit Tel Aviv-Mojtaba Zonour threatens attack on Israel if US launches military strike on Islamic Republic-By Times of Israel staff February 5, 2017, 7:35 pm
A senior Iranian government official on Saturday warned Tehran would swiftly retaliate against Israel if the US launched a military strike against Iran.Mojtaba Zonour, a member of Iran’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission and a former Islamic Revolution Guards Corps official, boasted an Iranian missile could hit Tel Aviv in under seven minutes, the semi-official Fars News Agency reported.Zonour said Tehran would strike the Israeli coastal city and “raze to the ground” a US military base in Bahrain “if the enemy makes a mistake.”“And only seven minutes is needed for the Iranian missile to hit Tel Aviv,” he added.Zonour’s comments came during a Revolutionary Guard military exercise aimed at testing its missile and radar systems. The exercise was taking place in a 35,000-square-kilometer (13,515-square-mile) area in Semnan province in northern Iran.The Saturday exercise came a day after US President Donald Trump’s administration imposed sanctions on Iran in response to a recent missile test. The sanctions target more than two dozen people and companies from the Persian Gulf to China.On Saturday, another senior IRGC official issued a similar warning against the US.Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, chief of the Guard’s airspace division, said: “If the enemy makes a mistake, our roaring missiles will come down on them,” according to the semi-official Tasnim news agency.Hajizadeh said Washington criticism of recent Iranian missile tests was “a pretext to show their animosity towards us; we are making round-the-clock efforts to defend our country’s security and if the enemy dares to make any mistake our roaring missiles will land on them.”Iran last Sunday test-fired a medium range missile, which the White House contends violated a UN Security Council resolution proscribing missiles that could carry a nuclear device.The Islamic Republic has confirmed it tested a ballistic missile but denied it was a breach of a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers or UN resolutions.
Rouhani: ‘Win-win’ nuke deal a model for resolving disputes-Iran president lauds accord, as supreme leader Ali Khamenei mocks ‘newcomer’ Donald Trump-By AP and Times of Israel staff February 7, 2017, 5:32 pm
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday that the “win-win” nuclear agreement his country signed with world powers in 2015 could serve as a blueprint for resolving other Middle East disputes.As an example, he pointed to Russian-led negotiations in Kazakhstan aimed at firming up a shaky Syrian ceasefire and paving the way for the revival of peace talks to end that country’s nearly six-year civil war.“The new US president reads text of the nuclear deal but cannot accept it. He says this is the worst deal in history,” Rouhani said in a speech, according to Reuters. “This is a win-win agreement. Everyone benefits from it… The nuclear negotiations can be used as an example for other talks to bring stability and security to the region.”Meanwhile, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who makes the final decisions on all major policies in Iran, said that “newcomer” President Donald Trump had shown the “real face” of the United States.Last week, after Iran tested a ballistic missile, Trump tweeted that the country was “playing with fire,” saying they “don’t appreciate how ‘kind’ President [Barack] Obama was to them. Not me!”“Why should we be thankful to the previous US administration?” he said. “Because it imposed anti-Iranian sanctions? Because of the extremist Islamic State group? Setting the region on fire in Iraq and Syria?”Trump has repeatedly criticized the nuclear agreement between Iran, the US and five other world powers, in which Tehran agreed to curb its uranium enrichment in exchange for the lifting of international sanctions, but he has not said what he plans to do about it.His administration said Iran was “on notice” over the missile test, and imposed new sanctions on more than two dozen Iranian companies and individuals.
Iran: Uranium shipment will give us 60% more than pre-deal-Size of stockpile significant should Tehran keep it in storage until terms of agreement expire-By AP and Times of Israel staff February 5, 2017, 11:09 pm
Iran’s nuclear chief said it would have 60 percent more stockpiled uranium than it did prior to its landmark 2015 agreement with world powers after a shipment expected later this week.Ali Akbar Salehi was quoted by the semi-official Fars news agency on Sunday as saying that Iran would receive a final batch of 149 tons of natural uranium by Tuesday, in addition to 210 tons already delivered since early 2016.The huge shipment of natural uranium from Russia was to compensate it for exporting tons of reactor coolant, diplomats said earlier this month, in a move approved by the outgoing US administration and other governments seeking to keep Tehran committed to a landmark nuclear pact.Uranium can be enriched to levels ranging from reactor fuel or medical and research purposes to the core of an atomic bomb. Iran says it has no interest in such weapons and its activities are being closely monitored under the nuclear pact to make sure they remain peaceful.Under the nuclear accord, Iran’s import of uranium is supervised by the International Atomic Energy Agency.Iran agreed to curb enrichment and place its nuclear program under international surveillance in exchange for the lifting of sanctions.Diplomats said Tehran has not said what it would do with the uranium but could choose to store it or turn it into low-enriched uranium and then export it for use as reactor fuel.Despite present restrictions on its enrichment program, the amount of natural uranium is significant should Iran decide to keep it in storage, considering its potential uses once some limits on Tehran’s nuclear activities start to expire in less than a decade.David Albright, whose Institute of Science and International Security often briefs US lawmakers on Iran’s nuclear program, said earlier this month the shipment could be enriched to enough weapons-grade uranium for more than 10 simple nuclear bombs, “depending on the efficiency of the enrichment process and the design of the nuclear weapon.”The swap is in compensation for the 70 metric tons (77 tons) of heavy water exported by Iran to the United States, Russia and Oman since the nuclear agreement went into effect.Heavy water is used to cool a type of reactor that produces more plutonium than reactors cooled by light water. Like enriched uranium, plutonium can be turned into the fissile core of a nuclear weapon.
