False claim in "Battle of Karameh"Edit

The section Aftermath contains this false conclusion:

Files released by the IDF in 2011 contradict the official Israeli narrative, which claimed that the operation was carried out in retaliation for the bus incident.

Just because operations are planned ahead in no way contradicts nor precludes that incidents occurring later on may serve as their trigger. Indeed, most military responses follow prior planning. IOW, it *was* carried out in retaliation of the bus incident, if that one hadn't occurred the same planned operation would simply have been triggered/in retaliation for yet another attack. There is no contradiction. -- 217.225.245.163 (talk) 18:19, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

Map of Jerusalem neighborhoodsEdit

Following a discussion at Talk:Jabel_Mukaber#map_and_caption, the proposal was raised to use a map of Jerusalem. When a map of East Jerusalem only was proposed, I started looking for a map of Jerusalem, preferably by neighborhoods, and noticed that there is no such map on Wikipedia. Can somebody please add a map of Jerusalem, preferably by neighborhoods, to Category:Maps of Jerusalem? Debresser (talk) 12:31, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

There is already one on commons here. It would just need someone to replace the Hebrew neighbourhood names with English. Redaktor may be able to do it. Number 57 13:31, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
Good to know. But this map is only of the localities surrounding Jerusalem, not of the Jerusalem neighborhoods. Which is what we need here. And it is in Hebrew. And it is missing the green line. Debresser (talk) 13:38, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
What is needed is an English version of the template תבנית:מפת שכונות ירושלים in which the neighbourhoods of Jerusalem have been added to the map.--Redaktor (talk) 21:52, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
Yes, please. Debresser (talk) 22:54, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Reorganize Wikipedia:WikiProject Ottoman Empire as a task force of Wikipedia:WikiProject Former countries?Edit

Dear users of this WikiProject:

At Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Former_countries#Make_WikiProject_Ottoman_Empire_a_task_force_of_Wikipedia:WikiProject_Former_countries? I have left a proposal to convert Wikipedia:WikiProject Ottoman Empire into a task force of Wikipedia:WikiProject Former countries. I asked this project (as all or parts of this country was formerly in the Ottoman Empire) and several other projects to get further feedback. Please let me know if you have questions, comments, or objections.

Thanks! WhisperToMe (talk) 01:55, 18 June 2020 (UTC)
