Mizan: Israel imposing security buffer zone inside Gaza

[ 12/01/2011 – 09:16 AM ]


GAZA, (PIC)– The Mizan human rights center in Gaza said Tuesday that Israel is trying to forcefully impose a security buffer zone inside the Gaza Strip and target civilians.

The rights group said it strongly condemned Israel’s continued restriction of access to Palestinians living on the Gaza border to their land and the deliberate assassination of some civilians as a serious violation of international law, especially the Fourth Geneva Convention, which relates to civilian protection at times of war.

According to Mizan center’s field investigations, Israeli troops opened sudden fire Monday afternoon at Sha’ban Qarmout, a farmer in Beit Hanoun city, while he was working on his 7,000 square meter farm, after a prevalent calm in the area that followed the departure of a foreign delegation.

The Gaza Ministry of Agriculture, for its part, said the Qarmout execution “shows the seriousness of the Israeli plan to establish a buffer zone to force Palestinian families out of their farms and homes on the eastern and northern borders of the Gaza Strip.”
