- UN Official Warns of New Conflict in Gaza Amid Israeli Pressure
The UN has criticized Israel for putting pressure on the already-besieged Gaza Strip, saying such policies could trigger a new conflict between Tel Aviv and the Palestinian resistance fighters there.
On Thursday, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov voiced concern over the situation in Gaza and said the regime in Tel Aviv must understand that its policies on the Palestinian enclave merely “escalate violence.” “Heat in the Gaza Strip is growing up,” said Mladenov during a visit to Gaza City.
The UN official further said Israel was not doing enough to ease the crippling blockade on Gaza, criticizing those “who believe that it’s possible to punish the Gaza Strip and keep it under blockade.”
Israeli imposed the siege on Gaza in 2007. Since then, the regime has launched three devastating wars on the coastal strip. The latest military offensive against the territory in 2014, left nearly 2,200 Palestinians dead, including 577 children, over 11,100 others wounded and thousands of homes destroyed. Israel continues to carry out attacks on the Palestinian enclave from time to time. The regime’s fighter jets also frequently bomb Gaza.
The UN diplomat further said “to restore calm, we need to follow up many issues, mainly reconstruction.” “We are very much concerned over the slow process of reconstruction,” said Mladenov.
Tel Aviv has repeatedly banned the shipment of cements and other construction materials to Gaza, claiming that it is used by Palestinian resistance fighters to build up underground tunnels to attack Israel.
Mladenov said the UN Security Council would hold a special session next week to discuss the situation in the Gaza Strip, including efforts to bring Israelis and Palestinians to meet over the reconstruction issue.

- Numbers 1:19
As the Lord commanded Moses, so he numbered them in the wilderness of Sinai.
[ Census of the Levites Commanded ] Then the Lord spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, saying:
[ The Second Passover ] Now the Lord spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt, saying:
And the children of Israel set out from the wilderness of Sinai on their journeys; then the cloud settled down in the wilderness of Paran.
And your sons shall be shepherds in the wilderness forty years, and bear the brunt of your infidelity, until your carcasses are consumed in the wilderness.
Revelation 12:3-6 New King James Version (NKJV)
3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. 4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. 5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
