HEBRON (Ma’an) — Youth activists held a vigil in the West Bank city of Hebron on Monday evening to commemorate the 64th anniversary of the Nakba, or catastrophe, of Palestinian expulsion in 1948.

Hundreds of Palestinian youth processed through Hebron’s streets with torches, before gathering at the prisoner society office to celebrate the deal ending a mass hunger-strike in Israeli jails reached earlier in the day.

The march, dubbed the “torches of return”, was organized by the Youth Against Settlements group for the third year, on the day commemorating the violence that accompanied the declaration of the state of Israel in 1948, and calling for refugees’ right of return.

“The Nakba is ongoing, and so resistance will continue,” Group coordinator Issa Amro said in an address at the rally.

“The victory we are witnessing is a good example that shows how powerful peaceful action is,” he said, referring to the Egyptian brokered deal which offered improved terms for prisoners in exchange for ending an open hunger-strike.

“The Israeli occupation has been embarrassed and forced to yield, which gives us a stronger impulse to use diverse forms of resistance,” Amro said.

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.
