DONETSK, August 04 (ITAR-TASS) - Over 700 Ukrainian government troops have surrendered to the local militias in the eastern Donetsk region, the Novorossiya news agency said on Monday.
“There is a message from the militiamen that 702 members of the Ukrainian army have surrendered in Shakhtersk, which is being held by joint militia forces,” the agency said, quoting one of the militia commanders as saying.
This information could not be confirmed from other sources.
Militiamen also said that they had used heavy weapons against the government troops twice during the day.
Moshe Feiglin, the deputy speaker of the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, has published a plan for the total destruction of the Palestinian people in Gaza.
His detailed plan, which calls for the use of concentration camps, amounts to direct and public incitement to genocide – a punishable crime under the Genocide Convention.
In a 1 August posting on his Facebook page, Feiglin, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ruling Likud Party, calls for the “conquest of the entire Gaza Strip, and annihilation of all fighting forces and their supporters.”
“This is our country – our country exclusively,” he writes, “including Gaza.”
Feiglin’s posting is the text of a letter he addressed to Netanyahu.
Citizens and public authorities around the world should attempt to have Feiglin arrested and prosecuted under the Genocide Convention for his statements, should he set foot in their territories.
His abominable plan comes as the death toll from Israel’s ongoing slaughter in Gaza reaches 1,752 people, including ten persons killed on Sunday morning when Israel once again bombed a United Nations-run school being used as a shelter, this time in the southern town of Rafah.
I think that it is important for everyone to know that my personal investment in Gaza is being on the ground in Gaza - and it is strictly in supporting the Palestinians in their struggle for freedom and self determination.
When I find that I have something to offer in support, that’s what I do.

Dearest friends -
The last night was extreme. The “ground invasion” of Gaza resulted in scores and carloads with maimed, torn apart,…
