China aims to build a world-class nuclear energy innovation hub in five years, rallying support from eight state-owned giants and leading academies, a milestone for the country’s ambitious plan to become a global nuclear forerunner.

Located in Shanghai, long a hotbed of nuclear innovation in China, the plan aims to make major breakthroughs conducive to a full industrial upgrading. This will include R&D, manufacturing of fourth-generation reactors and new types of pressurized water reactors; small reactors, marine nuclear power platforms, special nuclear materials; the construction of high-quality test benches and manufacturing chains, according to Zheng Mingguang, deputy general manager of the Shanghai-based State Nuclear Power Technology (SNPTC), the initiator of the project.

The mega plan will be pillared by the establishment of new innovative bodies in Shanghai, including an industry cloud and big data center, an advanced equipment manufacturing center, and a basic science innovation center to further establish China as a nuclear tech leader, high-end facility manufacturer and exporter.

The country’s top two nuclear energy makers, China National Nuclear and China Nuclear Power Engineering have signed up, pledging to deploy resources from their Shanghai affiliates to the new hub. Also on board are electrical equipment manufacturers, including Shanghai Electric, and brain powers such as the Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics under Chinese Academy of Social Science, Shanghai Supercomputer Center, and Shanghai Jiaotong University.

“As China moves to the forefront of nuclear technology, there is a greater need for the integration of resources between research institutes and companies.  In the next step, SNPTC will team up with Shanghai Jiaotong University to build a technology testing and verification base in Shanghai’s Lingang District,” said Zheng.

Shanghai is the birthplace of China’s nuclear power. In the 1970s, it housed China’s first domestically designed and built 300,000 KW Qinshan Plant, when more than 180 facility makers and research institutes laid roots in Shanghai to support its completion. Today, Shanghai has evolved into a major cluster of Chinese nuclear tech companies.

China’s aircraft carrier reportedly sails through the Taiwan Strait

The mainland’s first aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, sailed north through the Taiwan Strait on July 12, wrapping up a five-day visit to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the reported, citing Taiwan media. The transit was greeted with alarm by Taiwanese authorities, who pledged to monitor the vessel and its escorts.

China’s Ministry of National Defense has not confirmed the transit as of press time.

According to Taiwanese officials, Liaoning’s transit through the sensitive strait took place at around 2:40 am on July 12. The vessel entered Taiwan’s “air defense identification zone,” staying on the west side of the strait’s centerline. Many experts believe that the sail-by was not a provocation, as the vessel did not sail on the east side of the centerline.

This is not the first time that the aircraft carrier has entered the strait. On July 1, three days after the U.S. government approved a $ 1.4 billion arms package for Taiwan despite the mainland’s protest, the vessel entered the strait en route to Hong Kong for a first-ever visit as part of China’s celebrations marking the 20th anniversary of the former British colony’s handover back to China.

The aircraft carrier along with several other vessels set out from Qingdao in east China on June 25 for a routine training mission. The naval formation includes the advanced 052C and 052D destroyers. According to the national defense ministry, the training mission, like previous ones, is expected to improve overall coordination and improve the skills of crew and pilots in different marine regions.

Gaza Strip after ten years of blockade

Gaza Strip after ten years of blockade

Doha: After more than ten years of the Gaza Strip blockade, the United Nations (UN) once again warns the global community that the strip may become unlivable.
The Israeli siege imposed after the Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, took over resulted in a deterioration in medical and education services as well as a decrease in the supply of fuel and electricity that frequently cuts off from 70 percent of the Gaza houses and facilities. Israel military also attacked the strip in 2006, 2008, 2012 and 2014, further deteriorating the situation, however the people are still patiently holding on.
A report published by the UN in 2012 warned that the strip with more than 2 million Palestinians may become unlivable by year 2020, if no efforts are made to lessen the siege.

UN Coordinator for Humanitarian Aid, Robert Piper said all indications are moving in the wrong direction saying, “Gaza has continued on its trajectory of ‘de-development’, in many cases even faster than we had originally projected”. He then referred to the UN report, Gaza Ten Years Later, that stated Gaza has only 2 hours a day of electricity, youth unemployment reached 60 percent and children, women and cancer patients receive little access to medical services noting, “the ‘unliveability’ threshold has already been passed. Yet, somehow, families in Gaza find ways to ‘make do'”.
The Israeli authority announced it will decrease electricity supply by 45 minutes daily, making Gaza residents receive three or four hours of electricity daily, at best.
Amnesty International recently warned of the latest power cuts saying, “it will have a disastrous impact on Gazas battered infrastructure and cause a public health disaster. The move will also endanger thousands of lives including those of hospital patients with chronic conditions or in intensive care, including babies on life support.”
The Amnesty International article further read, “For 10 years the siege has unlawfully deprived Palestinians in Gaza of their most basic rights and necessities. Under the burden of the illegal blockade and three armed conflicts, the economy has sharply declined and humanitarian conditions have deteriorated severely. The latest power cuts risk turning an already dire situation into a full-blown humanitarian catastrophe”.

After Hamas’ control over Gaza, Israel has increased the siege over the area, declaring it a “hostile entity”. It closed all boarders, forbidding its people and goods from going in and out of the strip, it also threatened to cut off fuel supply and continuously violated the farmers and fishermen in their workplace on a daily basis. UN estimates Gaza’s needs for basic humanitarian supplies to be over 1,000 humanitarian truck per week, 625 of which carry food and medical supplies while 275 are for other necessary stuff. At least 80 percent of the population depends on these humanitarian aids provided by UN, UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) and other local and international organizations.
The imposed siege by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Gaza continues under the unreasonable international silence and in the absence of any criminal prosecution to hold the IOF accountable for their crimes along with the repercussions of the split between Palestinians factions, which has deepen the suffering.

The repeated and lengthy closure of the Rafah border crossing, which links Gaza with the external world, in addition to the continued Israeli acts of demolishing tunnels have counted up for misery generated by the siege and affected human rights of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.
Unemployment and poverty especially among graduates and post graduates as well government, local agencies and humanitarian organizations’ inability to employ them is a warning sign for further social and economical crisis.
Around 2 Million Palestinians live in Gaza Strip, which area is 145sq. miles (363sq. km), making it one of the most populated areas in the world. In reality Gaza’s area may account for less than that since Israel is halting 78 squared kilometers and consider them isolated and risky zones.
Gaza Strip’s suffering in numbers emphasis the size of the crisis, which Palestinians are undergoing, considering the reasons that contribute to worsen it.
The occupation, the division and the International community’s silence remain and further destroy Gazan people. Although the future doesn’t seem bright in the light of the siege, blocked tunnels, ban of importing electricity, for a long period, Gaza considers its steadfastness as victory of life against the Israeli occupation.

Refugees return to Syria from Lebanon in Hezbollah-mediated deal

Refugees return to Syria from Lebanon in Hezbollah-mediated deal

(Reuters) A convoy of refugees began leaving the Lebanese border region for Syria on Wednesday, a security source said, the second group to return under an agreement brokered by the Lebanese Shi’ite group Hezbollah.

The Lebanese army escorted around 250 people out of the border town of Arsal. The refugees headed for the Syrian town of Asal al-Ward across the border, northeast of Damascus.

A military media unit run by Damascus ally Hezbollah said the buses carried 60 families. An estimated 60,000 refugees are in Arsal.

It was the second batch of people to leave for their hometown across the border Arsal under the agreement, which Hezbollah arranged in indirect talks with the Syrian rebel group Saraya Ahl al-Sham, said an official in the alliance fighting in support of the Damascus government.

Hezbollah also coordinated with the Lebanese military and with the Syrian government separately, securing crossings for refugees who want to leave, the official said.

Several refugees told a Reuters photographer before a checkpoint manned by Hezbollah fighters they were eager to go back to their hometown after several years in squalid, makeshift camps in the border town of Arsal.

“It’s been three years and we haven’t seen our families and relatives, said Abeer Mahmoud al Haj, in a van with her family members around her. “May God return everyone to his country, there is no better than Syria,”

Since early in the Syrian conflict, Hezbollah has backed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government, along with Iran and Russia, sending thousands of men to fight the mostly Sunni Syrian rebels.

The U.N. refugee body said it was not involved in the deal. A spokeswoman said it was not encouraging large-scale return of refugees to a country where conflict is still raging.

“The UNHCR is not at a stage where it’s promoting return because the conditions are not conducive,” Dana Sleiman said.

Two refugees in Arsal who refused to give their names said many in the camps were unwilling to return because of fears their young men would be drafted into the army. Many had also lost their livelihoods and their villages had been ransacked.

“Reconciliation Deals”

More than 1 million registered Syrian refugees have fled to Lebanon, now making up a quarter of its population, the United Nations refugee agency says. The number is widely put at closer to 1.5 million.

They are scattered across Lebanon, mostly in makeshift camps and often in severe poverty, and face the risk of arrest because of restrictions on legal residence and work.

The group of refugees returned on Wednesday as part of a local deal, not a broader agreement. Politicians are deeply divided over whether Lebanon should work directly with the Syrian government over the return of refugees, which Hezbollah and its allies advocate.

Others, including Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri, are strongly opposed, questioning the safety of the refugees once they return. Hariri has called for secure areas to be set up on the Syrian side of the border to which refugees could voluntarily return under United Nations supervision.

In a televised speech on Tuesday, Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah warned that time was running out for Syrian militants along the border near Arsal to reach deals with Syrian authorities.

“It’s high time to end the threat of militant groups in Arsal and little time is left to reach certain reconciliation deals,” Nasrallah said. “There are terrorists and planners of attacks in Arsal and this needs a solution.”

Nasrallah praised the security campaign the Lebanese army has been waging in recent weeks against suspected militants.

The Lebanese army says it regularly stages operations in the hills near the northeastern border against Islamic State and militants formerly linked to al Qaeda.

In late June, authorities arrested several hundred people in raids on Syrian refugee camps in Arsal. A Lebanese military prosecutor has ordered forensic examinations on the bodies of four of them who died in army custody, after rights groups called for an investigation.
