GAZA, Aug 24 (KUNA) — Body of an old Palestinian who died in Israeli air attacks early on Wednesday was found near the refugee camp of Al-Buraij in the center of Gaza Strip later in the day.
Adham Abu Silimeh, spokesman of the supreme committee for rescue and emergency, told KUNA that medics located the corpse of Ismail Amom, 65. His body was badly disfigured due to shrapnel, he said. It was taken to Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir Al-Balah in central Gaza.
A ranking member of Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad group, died and two others were wounded in Israeli attacks that targeted a civilian car and A motorcycle in Rafah early today.
The raids came hours after the Palestinian factions declared intention to restore adherence to the truce with Israel. The Israeli Government also declared that it would not seek escalation action against the Palestinian groups.
However, Israel declared early today that its forces were put on alert in anticipation of a new wave of rocket attacks from the Palestinian regions. (end) mzt.rk KUNA 241802 Aug 11NNNN

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all?
