Malala Yousafzai in emotional return to hometown where she was shot in the head

Malala Yousafzai in emotional return to hometown where she was shot in the headMalala Yousafzai has described how "a dream came true" as she made a tearful return to her hometown for the first time since she was shot there by the Taliban as a teenager.  Miss Yousafzai, who became the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner for her campaign for girl's education, flew into Mingora, her home town in the Swat Valley, on a Pakistani Army helicopter on Saturday.  Malala Yousafzai arrives by helicopter to the all-boys Swat Cadet College Guli Bagh, during her hometown visit Credit:  ABDUL MAJEED/ AFP But while her return amid heavy security has been welcomed by most in Pakistan, it has been greeted by cynicism and hostility by still influential conservatives who view her as an advocate of alien western values. Mingora is where Malala's family was living and where she was attending school on October 9, 2012, when a gunman boarded her school bus, asked "who is Malala?", and shot her in the face. During an emotional reunion with friends and family and a visit to a local school, she said she had "never felt so happy" and praised the Pakistani security forces for fighting the Taliban.  "I miss everything about Pakistan … right from the rivers, the mountains, to even the dirty streets and the garbage around our house, and my friends and how we used to have gossip and talk about our school life, to how we used to fight with our neighbours," she said.  Students arrive at the Khpal Kor Model School, which was built with Malala Yousafzai's Nobel prize money Credit:  AFP/ABDUL MAJEED "So much joy seeing my family home, visiting friends and putting my feet on this soil again," she said.  Family friends said she was in tears after entering the family home where relatives, former classmates and friends had been anxiously waiting since morning to welcome her. So much joy seeing my family home, visiting friends and putting my feet on this soil again. #Home#Pakistanpic.twitter.com/B8VN5Odd27— Malala (@Malala) March 31, 2018 She later thanked the military for bringing peace to the area in an address to students at the all-boys Swat Cadet College Guli Bagh, some 15 kilometres (nine miles) outside of Mingora, the district's main town. "Peace has been restored in the country due to sacrifices of security forces," she said. "I left Swat with my eyes closed and now I am back with my eyes open," she said, referring to the attack which nearly blinded her.  "I am extremely delighted. My dream has come true. Peace has returned to Swat because of the invaluable sacrifices rendered by my brothers and sisters," she said.  The Swat Valley, part of the deeply conservative  Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, was a stronghold of Islamist militants for two years until the Pakistani Army recaptured the area in 2009.  The most beautiful place on earth to me. #SwatValley#Pakistanpic.twitter.com/eC4uHPt1wt— Malala (@Malala) March 31, 2018 The Pakistani Taliban still carry out terrorist attacks in the area, six years since a gunman from the group attempted to murder the then 15 year old Miss Yousafzai for campaigning for girls' education.  Miss Yousafzai's case has garnered attention across the world and while all women are guaranteed the right to education under Pakistan's constitution, girls education continues to face opposition from religious conservatives as well fundamentalist groups including the Taliban. A 2013 UNESCO found that over 3 million girls do not attend primary school in Pakistan, partly for economic reasons.  After treatment for her gunshot wound at a military hospital in 2012 Miss Yousafzai was airlifted to Britain, where her remarkable recovery and continuing campaigning for girl's education earned her the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, when she was just 17.  Malala Yousafzai, center in red shawl, sits with her family members and Pakistan Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb, second right, during a visit to Swat Cadet College in Mingora Credit: Abdullah Sherin/AP She has been credited with helping to improved education in the region, especially for girls, in the region. Earlier this month an all-girls school built with money from the Malala Fund opened in Shangla district northeast of Mingora, where her family lived before moving to the city. Miss Yousafzai, who is now 20 and studying politics, philosophy and economics at Oxford returned to Pakistan for the first time since the attack on Thursday.  Security has been tight for Miss Yousafzai's return to Pakistan, where her arrival has been criticized by religious conservatives.  Kashif Miza, the Chairman of the All Pakistan Private School Federation, an educational association, organized an "I am not Malala" day in his organization's schools in protest at her visit.  Children attend a class at the Khushal school in Mingora, which Malala Yousafzai used to attend  Credit:  FAISAL MAHMOOD/Reuters "We found Malala's book highly controversial, and contrary to the ideology of Islam and Pakistan," he told the Telegraph, referring to her 2013 book about her experience.  "Her book was written at the behest of Western forces who have used Malala for their ulterior motives and it is clear that Malala is playing in the hands of the enemies of Islam and Pakistan," he said.  Others have welcomed her however.  Kashif Adeeb Jawadani, the president of the All Pakistan Private Schools Management Association, a rival educational association, said his organisation had ignored Mr Miza's event, and praised Miss Yousafzai as a "role-model"   "We are taking Malala as a guest in Pakistan and she is a role model for millions of Pakistanis as well because of her achievements," he said.  "Kashif Mirza has his own stance on Malala, but he cannot impose his narrative on us," Mr Jawadani said.

Israeli military defends tactics as video appears to show unarmed Gaza protesters shot by snipers

Israeli military defends tactics as video appears to show unarmed Gaza protesters shot by snipersThe Israeli military has defended its handling of clashes in Gaza which left 16 Palestinians dead even as footage emerged appearing to show unarmed protesters being shot by Israeli snipers. Palestinian mourners called for "revenge" as they buried their dead after the bloodiest day in Gaza since the 2014 war and both side braced for what is expected to be weeks of rolling protests.    Around 30,000 Palestinians marched towards the Israeli border on Friday, where some hurled rocks and burning tyres and Israeli troops opened fire with live ammunition.  António Guterres, the UN secretary general, called for an investigation into the killings.  The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) said that its forces had fired only at specific people who were deemed to be “violent instigators” in the demonstrations.   “The use of snipers was against specific people who were specific perpetrators of violence,” said Lt Col Peter Lerner, an IDF spokesman.  However, widely shared videos on social media appeared to show at least two unarmed men by Israel gunfire.  Three separate clips were published on social media purporting to show one Palestinian shot as he walked towards the border the Israel. Using the three available videos of Incident 1 (east of Jabalia, #Gaza), I synchronised the footage of an apparent unarmed man that is walking towards the border fence and is being shot at. pic.twitter.com/eOgvQ6FLHz— Christiaan Triebert (@trbrtc) March 31, 2018 Another clip showed a young man running away from Israeli positions holding a car tyre. Car tyres are sometimes set on fire by protesters and rolled towards Israeli forces.  In the clip he appears to be shot in the back and crumples to the ground. Palestinian media reported that the man, identified as 18-year-old Abed el-Fatah Abed e-Nabi, later died from his injuries Lt Col Lerner said he could not comment on the specifics of the incident. “The fact that you have a video of 30 seconds showing this guy running away and being shot means you don’t see the context or what he was doing beforehand,” he said.   A second clip appears to shows an unidentified man, with no visible weapons, walking slowly towards the Israeli position when he was shot. It is not known if he was killed.   Hamas, the Islamist militant group that controls the Gaza Strip, said in a statement that five of the 16 people killed were members of its armed wing who were participating in the protests.  About | Hamas The Israeli military released footage showing two men with assault rifles trying to break through the Israeli fence on Friday night. Both men were killed by fire from Israeli tanks. The UK, US and EU all consider Hamas to be a terrorist group.  A spokesman for Mr Guterres said the UN leader wanted “an independent and transparent investigation into these incidents.  “He also appeals to those concerned to refrain from any act that could lead to further casualties and in particular any measures that could place civilians in harm's way.” The violence comes at the start of a tense period which will culminate in the opening of the controversial US embassy in Jerusalem in May and the 70th anniversary of what Palestinians call “The Nakba” – the mass displacement of Arabs during the 1948 war with Israel.  Hamas fighters at the funeral of one those killed in Friday's clashes Credit: Photo by Mustafa Hassona/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images Friday’s demonstrations were billed as the start of the “Great March of Return”, in which Palestinian refugees will demand to be able to return to their 1948 homes in what is today Israel.  Palestinians have erected camp sites of tents at five locations along the Gaza border and plan to move the tents closer and closer to the border as the May 15 Nakba anniversary nears. The protests have been backed by Hamas.  Small demonstration continued on Saturday and there were reports of some injuries among Palestinians but no major confrontations are expected until next Friday.  The Israeli military tweeted early on Saturday its response was “accurate and measured, and we know where every bullet landed”.  When asked by reporters a spokesman could not say how many live rounds the Israeli military fired on Friday or how many people were shot. The military later deleted the tweet.
