GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Palestine on Saturday marked the 47th Martyrs’ Day, a national day declared by late President Yasser Arafat in 1965.

Muhammad Nahhal, an official in a Gaza-based association to help martyrs’ families, says the day is an occasion to remember late leaders including Arafat, Hamas founder Ahmad Yassin, PFLP Secretary-General Abu Ali Mustafa and Fathi Shiqaqi, the founder of Islamic Jihad in Palestine.

“Speaking about martyrs means speaking about Palestinian identity, Jerusalem, the Palestinian national project and about the most noble people who lit our path to freedom,” Nahhal said.

Arafat declared the national day after Ahmed Mousa was killed in 1965 in an operation in Eilaboun, a Christian village in the Galilee. The mission was Fatah’s first military operation in Palestine, launched days after the movement was founded.

In October 1948, Palestinians were massacred in Eilaboun when Israeli forces raided the village during fighting to create the state of Israel.

Martyred By Israeli Occupation Attacks

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar


* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

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.
