GAZA: Al Jazeera ‘Gripping’ Footage Exposes Israel Brutality

AMISOM troops from Ugandan contingent together with the Somali National Army have today captured an assortment of weapons and ammunition from al Shabaab suspects in the capital Mogadishu.

These were seized at the Asuman Atto Garage in Mogadishu town during a cordon and search operation conducted Sunday morning.

The weapons recovered include 151 tortoise grenades, link http://changescale.org/wp-content/plugins/the-events-calendar%202/src/tribe/post_exception.php 238 Multi- Grenade Launchers, price http://cdaink.com.br/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-get-site-endpoint.php 43 boxes of 82 millimetre motor fuses, pill rocket propel grenade pipes as well as RPG shells and guns.

Also recovered were sipper riffles with attached telescopes, anti-tanker bombs and various types of guns and ammunition.

The discovery has raised fresh fears that the Al Shabaab militants could have been planning a huge military operation in the capital.

The militants have in recent week stepped up deadly attacks on key government installations including the presidential palace in which several guards were killed.

Al Shabaab are now employing the guerrilla warfare style to assassinate leaders and perpetuate an era of terror and fear in Mogadishu as one way of destabilising the country.

The AMISOM Force Commander Lt. Gen. Silas Ntigurirwa says such operations are part of the wider effort to improve security in Mogadishu and Somalia in general.

“Since we launched operation Eagle, we also launched the cordon and search in Mogadishu which is a bigger activity conducted by AMISOM troops, particularly sector one which is occupied by UPDF forces, jointly, with the Somali National Army, with NISA and Somali people,” he said.

Ntigurirwa further noted that some of the weaponry captured was already assembled and loaded for use and could have been used to cause extensive harm to the Somali people.

“Today we conducted a cordon and search in Mogadishu and we captured a lot of military equipment, which you can see here and some of it was already fixed, for example, you can see this ammunition which was already fixed to be used this night,” he added.

“Because of our cooperation with the public, we captured all of them. We have also a cargo there, with a lot of ammunition, bombs and there are many guns there. I think this is a good sign which shows the international community, which assures the Federal Government of Somalia and the Somali people that very soon, Somali will get peace and security,” he added.

The Sector Commander Brig. Dick Olum applauded the Somali people for providing key intelligence information that has facilitated frustration of several attacks by the al Shabaab.

He however called for vigilance, warning that al Shabaab terrorists easily blend into communities and may not be easily identified.
Local musician Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine could be prevented from performing in the UK for speaking openly against homosexuality, stuff http://ciudad-deporte.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-ftpext.php something that did not go down well with all the gays in Uganda and in other countries.

Bobi Wine is scheduled to perform alongside The Ebonies, in London and Birmingham on 10, 11, 23 and 24 August but gay rights activists in the UK have put up a campaign to ban him from touring or putting up concerts in the land.

According to the ‘gaystarnews’ website, Bobi Wine in an episode of his reality show was filmed writing a new song whose lyrics called upon all Ugandans to help ‘burn all the gays’.

Lyrics chosen for the new song, in mixed Luganda and English, include: ‘If you’re a man, you better be a man. If you’re a girl, you better stay a girl. Question, why do you do the abomination? Some men dress like a bitch and get it like a bitch. They stink like fish. Fire will burn the batty man. Burn all the batty man. All Ugandans get behind me and fight the batty man.’

Allegedly, Bobi Wine had this to say, “I know people will be opposed to me, and I’ve been banned from other countries because of my ideology of fighting gay people.

I’m proud to be fighting for the family and the culture. Uganda does not support or allow gay people. God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.”

About the issue, the Drum Theatre in Birmingham where Bobi Wine is slated to perform said that they could take ‘no responsibility’ for the views of one of the performing artists and that they were not aware of his comments or his song content.

‘They have just hired the space so we have nothing to do with it,’ a spokesman of the Drum Theatre said.

The Troxy in London however, when told about Bobi Wine, described it as a serious concern since matters like homophobia, transphobia and all discrimination are taken very seriously.

Ugandan gay people have also been appalled by Bobi Wine’s views as they feel their lives are threatened.

A one Tony Kitara, a gay man said, “I have been a fan of Bobi Wine, but now I feel threatened by the very person I have been supporting. As a Ugandan gay man I believe he shouldn’t be given any platform to spread gay hate through his music. He should be banned from spreading gay hate to other countries.”

Al Jazeera English has broadcast a powerful documentary highlighting the terrifying moments Palestinian civilians flee during an Israeli ground offensive in the densely populated district of Shujayea, visit web http://crfg.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/_inc/footer.php Gaza City.

Shujayea: Massacre at Dawn was produced by Al Jazeera Arabic, story http://crossfit908.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-upgrader.php and subtitled for English-speaking audiences. The documentary features raw and intense footage of Palestinian civilians fleeing the area after Israel’s intensified ground offensive on 20 July 2014.

The documentary includes the now infamous footage of the shooting of a young civilian in a green t-shirt, more about shot as he tries to collect the dead, as well as exclusive new footage by local filmmakers and Al Jazeera Arabic correspondent Wael Al-Dahdouh and the crew in the Gaza office.

The raw and powerful footage captures the terrifying experience of Palestinian civilians on the ground. As circulated in media, Al-Dahdouh later broke down in tears during his news report on this offensive. This documentary shows what he had witnessed that day.

The disturbing images includes numerous families running for their lives, desperately seeking loved ones amid the chaos and rubble, as well as wounded children in hospital.

“My son is gone!” screams a mother as she runs down a street, while moments later the teenager hops into view with a bloodied leg. He is carried away by another on his back, as is the terrified elderly father of another family, who is picked up and carried by his son amid the tumult. Others are not so lucky, with one stretcher-bearer felled by bullets, and killed in front of the camera. This is the young man in a green t-shirt, whose images have been circulating on social media.

Giles Trendle, director of programmes at Al Jazeera English, comments: “This is gripping footage of life on the ground for Palestinian civilians under heavy bombardment. It’s also a solemn reminder, if one were needed, about the desperate plight of the Palestinian people and the need to address the root causes of this ongoing conflict.”
