UN warns of “full-scale war” as Israel-Palestinian violence intensifies – BBC News


The United Nations is warning of the risk of “full-scale war” as the clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinians continue.

Israel’s Prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, warned Palestinian militants that this was just the beginning, threatening to strike with “blows they haven’t dreamed of”.

The United States is sending a senior diplomat to the Middle East to urge Israelis and Palestinians to end the violence.

At least 65 Palestinians including 15 children and six Israelis are reported to have been killed since the fighting began.

In the past few days Palestinian militants have fired barrages of rockets into Israel, many aimed at Tel Aviv. Israel has carried out a heavy bombardment of Gaza launching hundreds of air strikes.

Tensions have been growing in Jerusalem, partly due to a long-running threat to evict Palestinians from their homes in occupied East Jerusalem in an area claimed by Jewish settlers.

Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting by Tom Bateman in Jerusalem, Rushdi Abualouf in Gaza and Caroline Hawley.

  1. Israel is a fake country. The Zionist military and politicians killed many oppressed Palestinians and displaced many. The Zionists commit many crimes, but soon, God willing, they will be destroyed by the Islamic Resistance Front. In the hope that one day the Palestinian people will live freely in their country.

  2. Who cares if it is on the brink of war, israel will win very quickly and then hopefully its all over once and for all

  3. I don't know of any land that haven't been stolen for someone else! All around the world 🌎 historically this is the FACT.

    Education is truly the answer to religious teachings also, beliefs and the wars they start is sickening. Freedom of religion should be mandatory or just ban all religions, because this killing in the name of God is truly ridiculous When are we all going to grow up, and stop killing each other?
    We need to stop stealing land from each other on this day forward or it will never ever end.
    A country that suppress other
    countries is also an act of war that also and needs to stop. It's passed the time for everyone on our planet earth to get real, government's are doing most of the killing and citizens paying the price. All the wrong on both sides of this historical conflict needs to end. Yes every spec of land all around the world has been stolen from other people for thousands of years historically. Today's the best day to stop fighting over it, because it will never ever end if we don't stop this madness.
    Mandatory Education of true History and the truth of all Religions maybe a good start….


  5. I’m a Muslim , my friend is a Jew . The war only started bc in WW2 remember how Germans where kicking out Jews , well … The Israel’s want more land but we can all share … it’s not right to fight ! It’s lame to frame

  6. imagine you are in your country and SQUATTTTTTTTTTTERS took over and put you in jail,stealing anything and now the squatters crying ,asking for help saying you are the bad ONESSSSSSSSS !!!!!!

  7. "Full scale war" between a settler-colonial state with the fourth most powerful military on the planet & an occupied defenceless people. The BBC should inform its audience that the British are primarily responsible for visiting a century of misery suffering and death on the Palestinian people, when they decided to support the Zionist colonial project in 1917. Here the BBC routinely refers to Palestinians as "Arabs", betraying its implicit support for Israel.

  8. The End of this fallen sinful world ie The Second Coming of Jesus Christ is linked to Jerusalem, Israel.
    Bring it on.

    Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Arabia, Iraq, Jordon, Middle East, Turkey, North Africa etc were Christian, Jewish and some pagan countries, then occupied by sword by islamists, drove locals away, made them homeless in own countries, wiped them out, imposed jizyah and forcible conversion to islam.
    Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangla Desh were Hindu and Buddhist countries, occupied by sword by islamists. Same with other muslim countries occupied by force.
    Shout free Palestine while occupying countries by force. Hypocrisy and double standards. Persecutions and racism against non-muslims in islamist countries continue even today.
    Shout islamophobia, while practicing Christophobia, Antisemitism, Hinduphobia, Buddhismphobia, Sikhismphobia, homophobia, atheismphobia, non-muslimphobia.

    Salvation from sin and eternity in hell is free through Jesus Christ. Salvation is not by own deeds, rituals, ceremonies, pilgrimages, public displays, public shouts. They only provide sense of feelings of self-gratifying acts.
    A dirty cloth cannot clean itself. A sinful person cannot clean sins by own deeds. Only external agent can clean dirty cloth. Only Jesus Christ who came from heaven to earth can clean pre-existing sins.

    Jesus Christ died on cross and resurrected fulfilling prophecies for remission of everyone's pre-existing sins. Jesus Christ loves everyone unconditionally. Repent pre-existing sins in Jesus name, and be saved from eternity in hell. Else to face judgment. Jesus Christ coming again in future fulfilling prophecies to judge every single person.

  9. Israel has to pay for its crimes. We will fight against thsi barbarism even if the whole world continues to lick their shoes.

  10. Hamas should stop provoke well civilized country.i hard to understand why islam alway being terror to other people in every country and play victim at last

  11. How can we explain that before the Six Day War in 1967 there was no serious movement to demand Palestinian independence?

    “Before 1967? You will say to me, "the Israelis did not occupy the West Bank and the old city of Jerusalem" It is true. But during the Six-Day War, it was not from the hands of the Palestinians, or Yasser Arafat, that Israel conquered Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem.

    These territories were in fact occupied by King Hussein of Jordan since 1948. Was the Hashemite ruler ever asked to return these territories to the Palestinians? Has a single UN resolution emerged on this issue? No and no.

    Don't you ask yourself then why all these Palestinians suddenly discovered their national identity after Israel won this war?

    The truth is, Palestine is a Myth!

    The name Palestine is first used in AD 135 by Emperor Roman Hadrian, who not content with eradicating the Jewish presence in Judea (a presence that had lasted for over 1000 years! ), not content with having destroyed their Temple in Jerusalem, not content with having forbidden access to the country to the last Jews, persuaded himself that it was necessary to annihilate all traces of Jewish civilization in the country by renaming it for the benefit of a name derived from the Philistines.

    The Philistines being that people to which Goliath belonged and whom the Hebrews had succeeded in conquering centuries earlier. This baptism was for the Romans a way of adding insult to injury. They also tried to change the name of Jerusalem to "Alea Capitolina", but this did not meet with the same success. Palestine as an autonomous entity has never existed in history. Never !

    The country was dominated successively by the Romans, by the Christian crusaders, by the Muslims (who by the way never made Jerusalem a capital while they occupied the country), by the Ottomans and, briefly, by the British in the aftermath of the First World War. As early as 1917, with the Balfour Declaration, the British were in favor of ceding at least part of the territory to the Jewish people in order to establish a sovereign state there.

    There is no such thing as a proper Palestinian language. Not even a specifically Palestinian culture. There has never been a Palestinian ruled by Palestinians. The latter are Arabs, and are inseparable from the Jordanians (Jordan is also a recent invention, created from scratch in 1922 by the British).

    Realize that the Arab world controls 99.9% of the land in the Middle East. Israel represents only 0.1% of the regional surface! But this is still too much for the Arabs. They want EVERYTHING. And that is precisely where the crux of the conflict between them and Israel lies.

    Greed. Pride. Jealousy. Lust. All the concessions Israel might make will not be enough.

    What about the holy places of Islam? There are simply none in Jerusalem. Does that shock you? You can be. I am sure you will never hear this brutal truth from any international media. This is politically incorrect. I know you will tell me: Al Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem represent the third holiest site in Islam "after Mecca and Medina.

    Well, know that is wrong! In fact, the Qur'an makes no mention of Jerusalem. Mecca is cited hundreds of times. Medina is mentioned countless times. But Jerusalem never (conversely, Jerusalem is cited 669 times in the Torah!). There is no historical evidence that the Prophet Mohammad visited Jerusalem.

    So how did Jerusalem become the third holiest site in Islam? Muslims today refer to a vague passage from the Qur'an, the 17th Sura, entitled "The Night Journey" (1). It describes a dream of Muhammad who was transported at night "from the sacred temple to the most distant temple whose precincts we have blessed."

    In the seventh century, Muslims identified the two temples mentioned in this verse as Mecca and Jerusalem. This is the reason for the close connection between Islam and Jerusalem – a connection made up of dreams, imagination, interpretations and myth. At the same time, the Jewish people see their roots in Jerusalem going back to the time of Patriarch Abraham.

    The latest wave of violence in Israel was said to have originated with the visit of Likud Party leader Ariel Sharon to the Temple Mount, where the foundations of the Temple built by Solomon are located. It is the holiest site in Judaism. Sharon and his entourage were greeted there with throwing stones and insults. I know what it looks like. I was there. Can you imagine how the Jews feel when they are threatened, stoned and kept away from the holiest place in Judaism?

    So, you will say to me, what is the solution to bring peace in this Middle East? Frankly, I don't think any man today can claim to have a lasting solution. But if there is, it must begin by restoring the Truth. The pursuit of lies will only bring more chaos. Continuing to disregard a 5,000-year-old legitimate right to Jews, further reinforced by glaring historical and archaeological evidence, confronting them with bogus claims, can only give this lying diplomacy a bad reputation.

    (1) Muslims rely on the Quran to claim Jerusalem, yet Jerusalem is not mentioned there once. The 17th Sura contains a fuzzy allusion to a "furthest Mosque". "Praised be he who led his servant from the inviolable mosque to the furthest mosque during the night." But is there a solid basis that would prove that the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem is mentioned here? The answer is no !.
    During the time of Muhammad, who died in 632 AD, Jerusalem was a Christian city in the Byzantine kingdom. It was not conquered until six years later by Caliph Omar. During this period there were only churches in the city and on the Temple Mount was the Byzantine Church of St. Mary. Around the year 711, or 80 years after Muhammad's death, the church was transformed into a mosque and called al-Aqsa in order to give substance to the incomprehensible Sura 17 of the Koran. Muhammad could not therefore think of this mosque when he wrote the Quran, since it only existed three generations after his death. Besides, Muhammad had no particular sympathy for Jerusalem. He allowed these devotees to pray facing Jerusalem for a few months, hoping to convince the Jews to turn to Islam. The attempt having failed, he pronounced on February 12, 624, the prohibition to pray towards Jerusalem.
    This city was never a holy place for Muslims.

  12. Let them fight their religious stupid war! If any of these people leave America to fight.. simple do not let them back in! Universities already allowed them in America and look what they are doing trying to divide us!

  13. United nations debate on palistaine and Israel vote in United nations evry is respansibality United nations

  14. 1. Glory to Him who journeyed His servant by night, from the Sacred Mosque, to the Farthest Mosque, whose precincts We have blessed, in order to show him of Our wonders. He is the Listener, the Beholder.

    2. And We gave Moses the Scripture, and made it a guide for the Children of Israel: Take none for protector other than Me.

    3. The descendants of those We carried with Noah. He was an appreciative servant.

    4. And We conveyed to the Children of Israel in the Scripture: You will commit evil on earth twice, and you will rise to a great height.

    5. When the first of the two promises came true, We sent against you servants of Ours, possessing great might, and they ransacked your homes. It was a promise fulfilled.

    6. Then We gave you back your turn against them, and supplied you with wealth and children, and made you more numerous.

    7. If you work righteousness, you work righteousness for yourselves; and if you commit evil, you do so against yourselves. Then, when the second promise comes true, they will make your faces filled with sorrow, and enter the Temple as they entered it the first time, and utterly destroy all that falls into their power.

    8. Perhaps your Lord will have mercy on you. But if you revert, We will revert. We have made Hell a prison for the disbelievers.
