GAZA, (PIC)– A six-year-old Palestinian child was killed in an Israeli artillery shelling of Abassan to the east of Khan Younis, south of the Gaza Strip, on Saturday.

The PIC reporter said that the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) fired a number of artillery shells at the Ruwad playground instantly killing Mutaz Shawaf and injuring a number of other civilians.

The IOF escalated military aggression on the Gaza Strip since the early morning hours on Saturday and launched a series of air raids on its northern and southern areas that wounded about 20 citizens while on Friday two were killed and three were injured.

Security sources said that one of the raids targeted buildings in downtown Gaza wounding eight citizens, including four security men, smashing the windows of many houses and shops, and damaging a big number of cars.

They said that another raid targeted a position for the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, to the east of Jabaliya north of Gaza Strip, wounding ten citizens living near to the position.

The reporter said that a third raid targeted another position for the Qassam Brigades on Deir Al-Balah coast in central Gaza injuring a passerby.

IOF soldiers opened random artillery fire at the eastern area of the Strip especially eastern Rafah, south of the Strip, while Israeli gunboats bombarded fishing boats.

Meanwhile, Hebrew media said that an Israeli man sustained moderate to serious wounds on Saturday morning when a Palestinian resistance rocket blasted near his home in the western Negev.

The Palestinian resistance factions responded to the ongoing Israeli aggression by firing a number of locally made rockets at Israeli targets adjacent to the Gaza Strip.

The Hamas armed wing said in a statement that it would respond to any violation of the Egyptian-mediated calm.

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.
