"After I kill your brother."
- Does it give you any rights, to kill mine?
- Are my brother a murderer because I am one?
- Is my brother an accomplice of mine?
- Do you have any rights to destroy my house?
- Do you have any rights to displace me?
and so on..
So If we kill a pkk member in a firefight does that justift his brother to be a pkk member? you have no idea how we stopped pkk inside turkish soil Its not always sunshine and butterflies.

Danielle Aloni and her daughter Emilia, 5, were held hostage by Hamas for 49 days in besieged Gaza.
On November 24, the Israeli mother and daughter were released as part of a temporary ceasefire deal between Hamas and Israel and reunited with their relatives.
Before they left Gaza, Danielle Aloni wrote a "thank you" letter to Hamas saying, "I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your extraordinary humanity shown towards my daughter, Emilia."
Qassam Brigades, which is the armed wing of Hamas, shared the letter on its official Telegram account at 1649 GMT on November 27.
The letter was originally written in Hebrew and accompanied by an Arabic translation, along with a photograph of the Israeli mother and her daughter.

'Felt like a queen'

In her handwritten letter in Hebrew, Danielle said: "She (Emilia) acknowledges feeling like all of you are her friends, not just friends, but truly beloved and good".
Aloni acknowledged the good care given to hostages in Gaza and wrote: "Thank you for the many hours you spent as caregivers."

She further stated her daughter has not only bonded with Hamas but also felt like a queen.
"Children should not be in captivity, but thanks to you and other kind people we met along the way, my daughter felt like a queen in Gaza," she said.

"In the long journey we have been on, we have not met anyone who has not been kind to her, you have treated her with kindness and compassion."

Aloni ended her letter with compassion for Hamas, stating: "I will remember your kind behaviour shown in spite of the difficult situation you faced and the severe losses you suffered here in Gaza."

"I wish in this world we could truly be good friends," she wrote and added her well wishes to Gazans "I wish you all health and well-being... health and love to you and your families' children."

Danielle and Emilia Aloni were among 24 Israeli hostages released by Hamas on November 24. They were visiting Danielle's sister and her family at Kibbutz Nir Oz in southern Israel before being taken hostage.

‘We’re taking it out of hide’: Pentagon says it has no money for Middle East buildup​


The Defense Department has ordered an additional aircraft carrier strike group, air defenses, fighter jets and hundreds of troops to the Middle East since the surprise terrorist attacks on Israel on Oct. 7, in an effort to prevent the conflict from spiraling into a regional war.
The problem: Congressional dysfunction means the Pentagon has no money to pay for the buildup.
The military, like the rest of the federal government, is operating under a temporary funding measure that freezes spending at the previous year’s levels. And because the Middle East troop movements weren’t planned, the Pentagon has had to pull money from existing operations and maintenance accounts, DOD spokesperson Chris Sherwood said. President Joe Biden signed the stopgap measure this month to keep the government open until lawmakers can agree on a full-year spending bill.


Because DOD had to hunt for funds, that means less money for training, exercises and deployments the military had already planned for the year. Some contractual payments could be delayed, Sherwood said.

“Current events have revised some of the operational assumptions used to develop the FY 2024 President’s Budget request. Specifically, neither the base budget request nor the FY 2024 supplemental request included funding for U.S. operations related to Israel,” he said.
“We’re taking it out of hide,” Sherwood added.


The buildup in the Middle East — which has included extending the deployment of the Gerald R. Ford Carrier Strike Group operating off the coast of Israel — has therefore forced the military departments and U.S. Central Command to reassess the requirements for current and future operations based on the developing conflict, he said.
As of Tuesday afternoon, DOD said it was still working on releasing an estimate of the total cost of the U.S. support for Israel.
Top Pentagon officials warn year after year about the harm that temporary funding measures have on military readiness. Operating under a stopgap measure prevents the department from starting any new programs or paying for anything above the previous year’s levels.
That burden is now weighing heavier than usual on DOD, as the Pentagon supports two wars at once: in Ukraine and in Israel.
“We’ve gotten used to getting by, CR to CR, but it’s with significant consequence,” Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks said during a Nov. 21 event in Washington, using the abbreviation for continuing resolution. “That has a cost. You can’t buy back the time. You just can’t.”
Hicks estimated the impact of keeping the Pentagon under the stopgap effectively means the department takes a $35 billion cut.
“We have a responsibility to build trust with Congress — to get done what we want to get done,” Hicks said. “But the truth of the matter is, trust is a two-way street, and we are really being challenged to trust that our partners in Congress can get done what they need to do for us to achieve those ends.”
Once the continuing resolution runs out Feb. 2, it’s up to lawmakers to pass a full-year spending bill. But if the bickering drags on through April, the Pentagon and other federal agencies will face a 1 percent across-the-board spending cut.
