BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Senior Fatah official Jamal Muheisen said Saturday that West Bank authorities are in touch with Egypt and other nations to reach a truce between Israel and Gaza militants.

While Hamas’ military wing signed up to a truce mediated by Egypt on Wednesday night — after Israeli airstrikes killed eight Palestinians in three days — it quickly came unstuck as rockets and airstrikes continued.

Another five people have been killed in airstrikes since Friday, medical officials in Gaza say. Israel’s military says it is targeting rocket-launchers and denied involvement in one of the deaths, of a 4-year-old boy on Saturday.

Muheisen called on the international community to save lives by demanding protection for Palestinians living under occupation in accordance with international law.

President Mahmoud Abbas is in constant contact with Egypt and other Arab and foreign countries seeking a truce, he said.

Hamas official Ayman Taha told Gaza-based news site Safa press that an agreement to halt hostilities had been reached on Saturday night following Egyptian mediation, but no Hamas spokesman could be reached to confirm the report.

The Egyptian ambassador to the Palestinian Authority also did not return calls seeking comment.

Ofer Gendelman, spokesman for the Israeli Prime Minister, told Ma’an that Israel will continue military actions on the Gaza Strip as long as rockets are fired into Israel.

“Those who fire rockets at Israel will pay the price,” he said. An Israeli military spokeswoman said 24 rockets fired from Gaza landed in south Israel on Saturday, wounding one Israeli man.

Gendelman declined to discuss any efforts being made via Egypt to reach a truce.

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.
