#GazaUnderAttack | The Al-Qassam Brigades Seeks Truce After Third Day of Airstrikes

Following days of strikes and counterattacks between Israeli military forces and Qassam brigades in Gaza the Palestinian organization has announced its desire for a truce.

The conditional ceasefire would be brokered by Egypt and put an end to the violence, which broke months of relative calm along the disputed Israel-Gaza border, Ma’an News Agency reports.

Palestinian groups responsible for the rocket attacks claim that their barrages were in response to Israeli air strikes over the weekend in Gaza, which killed and injured several Palestinians and caused significant property damage to civilian areas.

Reports of the number of Qassam rockets fired from Gaza during the past three days range to as many as 100. No Israelis were killed by the rockets and only one building was confirmed to have been struck. Eight Israelis were treated for shock but were otherwise unharmed, reports AFP.

The damage and casualty toll for Palestinians in Gaza is considerably higher. A 14-year-old boy was killed and his father seriously wounded by Israeli airstrikes on a farm outside of Gaza City on Wednesday, reports the BBC.

Eight Palestinians have been killed by Israeli strikes since Monday with only one individual, Ghalib Armilat, confirmed to have been involved with Qassam rocket launches. The youngest casualty, 2-year old Hadeel Haddad, was among the first killed in the three days of bombardment, according to the Palestine News Network. Israel claims that she was killed by a misfired Qassam rocket but sources on the scene in Gaza credit Israeli gunships for the explosion.

Two Palestinian boys, aged 13 and 14, were killed by an Israeli airstrike on Tuesday night after a Cairo-brokered ceasefire fell through. Recognizing that they could not long endure such attacks from the Israeli military authorities in Gaza called for an immediate return to the negotiating table.

Israel is not looking for Peace



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.
