Israeli strike kills 6-year-old boy in Gaza

Palestinian relatives mourn as they carry the body of six-year-old Ali al-Shwaf during his funeral in Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip on June 23, 2012, after he was killed during an Israeli air strike in Gaza as his father and another man were wounded in the shelling, but the Israeli military denied it was responsible.
Relatives are mourning a six-year-old Palestinian boy who was killed by an Israeli strike on the Gaza Strip. Israel confirmed the strikes, which also wounded 20 other people, but denies any involvement in the child’s death.

­On Saturday Israel launched air raids on Palestinian territory following rocket fire from Gaza that wounded an Israeli man.
Gaza health officials confirmed that at least four people had been killed and over 20 more wounded, including civilians. Israel confirmed its aircraft had struck two militant targets in Gaza overnight, saying it was a retaliatory raid.

In the wake of the attacks, Hamas has threatened to call off an Egypt-brokered truce and escalate attacks on Israel.

A third separate Israeli attack killed a six-year-old boy at a soccer field near the town of Khan Younis in the south of the Gaza Strip, Hamas medical officials claimed. The boy’s father was wounded in the shelling. Palestinian relatives of six-year-old Ali al-Shwaf mourned his death later on Sunday.

An Israeli military spokeswoman, however, denied Israel was responsible for the latter attack, saying that “an initial examination shows the military was not involved in this incident.”

Israel claims Gaza militants have fired more than 130 rockets into its territory over the last week.

The country’s authorities have urged the one million Israelis who live in the south to stay indoors for their safety.

The Israeli military’s chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz, has gathered senior officers to discuss the latest flare-up in violence.

The strikes follow Monday’s skirmish between Israeli forces and three alleged militants who attacked workers on the border with Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. Two militants were killed, while one managed to escape.

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.
