Report: Israel Using Depleted Uranium in Missile Attacks on Damascus

TEHRAN (FNA)- Sources disclosed on Sunday that Israel has used depleted uranium in its recent missile attacks on a suburban Damascus area.

The first missile which hit Jamraya near al-Haviyeh in Reef (outskirts of) Damascus contained uranium substances, a correspondent of the Russian TV quoted some local sources as saying.

Other media outlets had also earlier released similar reports on Israel’s use of radioactive materials in attacks on Syria.

Explosions shook Damascus early on Sunday and Syrian state television said Israeli rockets had struck a military research center on the outskirts of the capital.

The blasts occurred a day after an Israeli official said Tel Aviv had carried out an air strike targeting a consignment of missiles in Syria. The research center hit on Sunday was also targeted by Israel in January.

“The new Israeli attack is an attempt to raise the morale of the terrorist groups which have been reeling from strikes by our noble army,” Syrian television said, referring to recent offensives by President Bashar al-Assad’s forces against rebels.

There was no immediate comment from Israeli officials on Sunday’s explosions.

Late in January, the Syrian Army said in a statement that two people were killed and five others injured in an Israeli air strike on a scientific center in Jamraya, 25 kilometers (15 miles) Northwest of the capital Damascus.

US Sponsored “Islamic Fundamentalism”: The Roots of the US-Wahhabi Alliance

By Benjamin Schett (thanks to Hajer Naili for sharing this post with us)

The alliance between the United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia helped spread the ideology of fundamentalist Sunni Islam all over the globe. The majority of its victims are not citizens of Western countries, but citizens of countries that U.S. elites consider a threat to their economic and geopolitical interests. Many victims of Sunni extremism (often called Wahhabism or Salafism[1]) are in fact Muslims (often with a secular leftist or nationalist political background), moderate Sunni or members of Shiʿite Islamic faith.

This article addresses the history of Wahhabi fundamentalism and the examples of Afghanistan in the 80s, as well as the current situation in Syria. Both cases illustrate America’s responsibility for the destruction of secular, socially progressive societies in the Islamic world and elsewhere.

The Origins of Wahhabism

Wahhabi ideology serves U.S. interests for several reasons. Its followers’ archaic perception of society makes them reject any kind of progressive social change. Therefore they are well equipped to push back socialist, secular or nationalist movements, whose independence-oriented policies are a threat to America’s geopolitical agenda. Although Wahhabism certainly is not representative of the majority of Sunni Muslims, Wahhabi Muslims are Sunni extremists, which causes them to maintain an extremely hostile stance towards Shi’te Islam.

US CRIMES AGAINST IRAQI POPULATION (VERY GRAPHIC)

US CRIMES AGAINST IRAQI POPULATION, THIS IS THE RESULT OF DEPLETED URANIUM. HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF YOUR CHILD WAS BORN LIKE THAT?

The ultimate crime against humanity, the deliberate attack on the DNA of a nation…. this is more much more than what the Nazis ever tried.

[Editor’s note: You can find more on this topic HERE – HERE – HERE . The use of Depleted Uranium on innocent civilians is a breach of every single international convention and law. Just so you know, each Thomahawk missile contains 360kgs of Depleted Uranium . For the selfish ones who actually don’t care of seeing Arab DNA being destroyed by the Empire, they should learn about the US and NATO soldiers that went on the field and that also breathed Depleted Uranium – HEREHERE.]

Please, help us creating awareness of those continuous CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY that mainstream media totally accepted to cover up (hence, they are to be considered as accomplices of those crimes) No need to mention the criminal United Nation that serves as a legitimate tool to carry out those attrocities and NATO, which is the performing evil in implementing GENOCIDE. 

Thank you for your help and support

Libya – War Without End

 

By Stephen Lendman

Libya will long be remembered as one of history’s great crimes. For over eight months, NATO’s killing machine ravaged the country, killing tens of thousands.

Years of protracted conflict lie ahead. Libyans will keep struggling until they’re free from NATO’s scourge.

UN Resolution 1973 authorized a no-fly zone. In fact, it lawlessly declared war. A prosperous, peaceful, nonbelligerent country and its way of life was destroyed.

Civilians and non-military sites were deliberately targeted. Cold-blooded murder and mass destruction were planned.

Sirte, a city once home to 100,000, symbolizes NATO’s depravity. Terror bombing destroyed it. Thousands were massacred.

Under international law, it’s a war crime.

Under the 1907 Hague Regulations, Fourth Geneva, Geneva’s Common Article III, and various other international laws, civilians are protected persons. So is civilian property. Attacking them is prohibited. War crimes are clearly defined. The principles of distinction and proportionality also apply:

distinction between combatants and military targets v. civilians and non-military ones; attacking latter ones are war Continue reading
