Alleged Israeli Strike Location In Syria’s Latakia Found

Alleged Israeli

Location In Syria’s

Latakia Found

Israel Strike on Latakia-thumb-560x196-2062

Last week on 12 July, US officials confirmed that Israeli forces had struck a warehouse near Latakia thought to house 50 x Russian manufactured Yakhont missiles on 05 July. The reason reported for the strike: the potential threat to Israeli shipping in the Mediterranean.

While Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon denied that Israel was responsible for the incident, media reports have consistently contradicted his official statement. In fact, the Israeli press recently reported that cruise missiles from Israel’s Dolphin submarines were the culprit, although that is difficult to confirm. Notwithstanding, additional sources in the US seem to corroborate the cruise missile strike explanation.

Putting uncertainties aside for a moment, OSIMINT can at least confirm the location of the alleged strike in Latakia whose 20 x 80 meter warehouse, observed above, also had 3 launch pads and a secure fenceline. The warehouse was located 10 meters inland from the port and directly adjacent to a munitions depot and additional storage buildings, making this a likely location for targeted surveillance.

Latakia Munitions targeting

Beyond the main target of the Yakhont missiles, the Israeli press also released imagery showing strike damage of the adjacent area. In the comparison to the left, at least six bermed munitions buildings are highlighted as showing damage. According to Israel Defense, “impact can be identified with certainty at five warehouses.”

A third image (not pictured) shows “about six cargo transporters” not far from the sites of the strikes.

In summation, the 05 July strike is the latest in a series of strikes carried out by Israel against targets on Syrian soil. In January, the IAF reportedly hit targets thought to be Russian-made SA-17s near the Scientific Studies and Research Center (Centre D’Etudes et de Recherches Scientifiques) in Jamraya. In May there were two additional strikes, one targeting buildings near the SSRC, and the other, striking potential shipments of the Iranian-made Fateh 110 at Damascus International Airport.

Bottom Line

The latest strike continues to reiterate Israel’s determination to act while the US remains risk averse to any direct intervention, pushing back its so-called red line at every turn.

Assessing the Damage in Gaza

Assessing the

Damage in Gaza

 

unosat-analysis-0726-ai2html-460

UNOSAT recently acquired satellite imagery to analyze the increasing amounts of destruction in the northeastern section of the Gaza Strip.

Unosat 0726 legendThe ongoing violence in Gaza is on the verge of creating more causalities than any other Israeli-Palestinian conflict in recent memory. Today, the three-week old conflict erupted yet again as the fragile cease-fire agreed to on Saturday broke down. Hamas militants fired a barrage of rockets into Israel while Israeli troops continued to demolish the tunnel network.

Since the beginning of the ground war 43 Israeli soldiers and more than 1000 Palestinians have been killed according to public figures as of 26JUL14. By comparison, Israel’s 2009 Gaza offensive, about 1,400 Palestinians were killed while Israel had  23 deaths, 13 of which were soldiers.

The imagery above illustrates the destruction in the Gaza Strip which include areas of Gaza City, Toffah, Shija’ia, and Shaaf, resulting from the increasing amounts of conflict in the area.

As observed above, a change detection product was created by comparing satellite imagery from 06 and 25JUL14, both captured by the Pleiades satellite. The subsequent analysis identified 604 destroyed structures, 236 severely damaged structures, and 46 moderately damaged structures.  In addition, 66 craters on roads and in agricultural and non-urbanized areas are also visible as of 25JUL14. The light yellow circles above indicate where underground tunnels have been found.

Palestine: Virtual Field Visit E1

Palestine: Virtual Field Visit E1

 

 

Al-Haq, a Palestinian NGO based in Ramallah, has recently published a series of field visits showing the extent in which Israel continues to settle in Palestinian occupied territory.

al-haqThe occupation of territory as a result of the Six Day War in 1967 has been most detrimental for the future of Israeli-Palestinian relations. An important factor for a two-state solution has invariably been tied to the recognition of pre-1967 borders, something that today seems almost impossible given the increase of Israeli settlements.

While most scholars consider the Jewish encroachment a violation of international law, more specifically human rights law, there’s been little room for enforcement beyond naming and shaming.

Speaking of which, today’s post looks at a virtual field visit of Palestinian territory known as “E1″ put together by Palestinian NGO Al-Haq. The NGO is a Palestinian civil society organisation which documents breaches of international human rights and humanitarian law in the Palestinian territories.

A description of the E1 field visit taken from Al-Haq’s website reads:

The “E1” Virtual Field Visit is the latest in a series of virtual field visits produced by Al-Haq. Designed to bring the field to people who are unable to visit the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT), the virtual field visits use maps to illustrate the obstacles and human rights abuses faced by Palestinians on a daily basis.

On 29 November 2012 the United Nations (UN) voted to upgrade the status of Palestine to non-member observer State. Shortly afterwards, Israel, who had vociferously objected to the upgrade, announced the construction of an additional 3,000 units for settlers in the West Bank. This included construction in what is known as the “E1” area, which refers to a twelve square kilometre plot of land located in the West Bank, to the east of the Jerusalem municipal boundary and bordering the Ma’ale Adumim settlement. The close proximity of the E1 area to Ma’ale Adumim settlement allows for significant expansion of what is already the third most popular settlement in the OPT.

The E1 area stretches across 22,000 dunums of confiscated Palestinian land and also provides a vital passage joining the northern and southern sections of the West Bank, as well as Jerusalem. The closure of this passage would effectively cut the West Bank into two. Construction in the E1 area, combined with restrictions imposed by the Annexation Wall and the Oslo Accords, creates a clear obstacle to a self-sufficient economically viable Palestinian State.

Hundred thousands of protesters gathered in London on this Saturday (19th July 2014) to call for an end to Israeli military action in Gaza and “justice and freedom” for Palestine.
This demonstration called by: Stop the War Coalition, Palestine Solidarity Campaign, CND, Friends of Al Aqsa, British Muslim Initiative, War on Want, Islamic Forum of Europe, Palestinian Forum in Britain
2100 Israeli air strikes, over 2000 rockets fired, and now the ground invasion has started we can expect a sharp escalation. Over 300 Palestinians have been killed, 77% of them civilians, a quarter of them children. Over 2200 have been injured and more than 2000 homes destroyed. Israeli prime minister Netanyahu says, “No international pressure will prevent us from striking.”
Israel’s barbaric bombardment of the most densely populated area on earth must stop now. Barack Obama, David Cameron and UK foreign secretary William Hague’s support for “Israel’s right to defend itself” is nothing less than collusion with war crimes killing women, children and disabled people.

I joined this vast crowd of people in the national demonstration and took few images.
