For Our POWs In 1973

Al Jazeera channel official website made a report about the Palestinian detainee , Mansour Mowqda who is currently jailed in Israel for murder an Israeli Veteran officer.

The story of Mansour started in early 2002 where he worked at a farmer that was owned by a veteran IDF officer , that officer one day bragged in front of Mansour on how he killed Egyptian POWs in Yom Kippur October war 1973, yes in Yom Kippur war.

Mansour told his family that the officer was speaking proudly on how the Egyptian soldiers were put under the tanks’ track to be squashed then later were buried in mass graves. He even told him that he killed the Egyptian officer who was in charge of  those soldiers with three gun shots then how he urinated over his body. Mansour could not keep his anger and killed that veteran officer/ war criminal.

Of course he was arrested later after being shot by dumdum bullets and was sentenced a life prison term. His injury went from bad to worse to worst as his lower part of his body is completely paralyzed.He had multiple major  surgeries and he needs huge medical care and attention.

Unit 1391

Truth always comes in the end regardless of how many years and how many attempts to hide it and the truth of Unit 1391 was a proof on this.

The world had a chance in 2003 to know Unit 1391 but unfortunately it missed this chance for some reason thanks to the media that ignored it or rather believed so easily that Israel’s first known secret detention came better known as Unit 1391 had been shut down , well for sure it is shut down but there are for sure many secret detention prisons worse that unit 1391 in that country.

That secret detention is only one in a big series of secret prisons there and I do not have to bet that it had been used not only against Palestinian Political prisoners but also against Arab POWs including the Lebanese and Egyptian POWs , it had been used for sure since the time of the British forces.According to several Lebanese sources this prison which could not be found on official maps was used during the Israeli invasion to Lebanon in 1980s and several Lebanese Amal movement POWs were transferred there and never were seen again. May be the high ranked Egyptian POW from officers were taken there from Atlit camp to there for interrogation as several Egyptian  POWs remember that several Egyptian POWs were taken from the camp and did not return back , there were not seen again whether dead or alive in the camp.

POW Camps in Gaza

I am sorry for the lack of the updates in this website. I am afraid I am kind of busy in my blog following the Gaza crisis. Still I found this news today from RafahKid and I though I should post it here. The IDF did not waste any ime in building POWs camps in Gaza.

Based on PNN Report ; Rafah Kid is reporting the following :

The Israeli military imposed four detention camps in the Gaza Strip where they are holding at least 500 Palestinians.

At the site of the former settlement of Netzarim is one camp, with a second in the north’s Beit Hanoun, another in Bani Suheila in the south and a four near the Karni Crossing.

Some Palestinian security prisoners were deported to the Israeli intelligence service to be investigated as part of the “wanted lists of the occupation authorities” for belonging to Hamas.

The problem is that there are already too many Palestinian POWs in the Israeli prisons.

We should not forget that among the Israeli so-called reasons to launch that war against the Gaza sector is the capture of Galid Shalit .
