Egypt foreign ministry: Israel violates the calm in Gaza (131 times to be exact. Including full list of violations)

[ PIC 04/04/2013 – 09:40 AM ]

images_News_2013_04_04_amr-0_300_0[1]CAIRO, (PIC)– The Egyptian ministry of foreign affairs warned that the truce between the Palestinians in Gaza and the Israelis would collapse if the latter persisted in violating it.

In a press statement on Wednesday, Egyptian foreign minister Mohamed Amr condemned Israel’s air raids on Tuesday night on Gaza.

Amr said that Israel’s policies would adversely affect Egypt’s ongoing efforts to maintain calm in the Gaza Strip.

The minister also slammed Israel’s practices against the Palestinian prisoners, which led to the death of a prisoner a few days ago.

He stressed the need for finding international mechanisms ending Israel’s systematic violations against the Palestinian prisoners.

For its part, Al-Azhar university in Egypt strongly denounced Israel’s latest aerial attacks on Gaza and its ongoing violations against the Palestinian prisoners.

The university appealed in a press release to the international institutions to shoulder their responsibilities and criminalize Israel’s persistent violation of its truce agreement with the Palestinians in Gaza.

In this regard, noted Palestinian political analysts stated in separate press statements to the Palestinian information center (PIC) that Israel’s air raids on Gaza on Tuesday night were aimed to cover up its violations against the popular uprising in the West Bank.

Head of Al-Mustakbal research center Ibrahim Al-Madhoun said that the Israeli military escalation was not surprising and took place as a result of the tension in the West Bank, which was caused by the death of prisoner Maisara Abu Hamdiya.

Madhoun expressed his belief that the new Israeli government would be more criminal towards Gaza, especially since its war minister Moshe Ya’alon has hostile tendencies towards Gaza.

Political analyst Hamza Abu Shanab, in turn, stated that the Israeli occupation tries to repeat what it had done before its last war on Gaza by carrying out preemptive strikes on resistance sites at the pretext of responding to Palestinian rocket attacks.

Abu Shanab added that the Israeli occupation wants to disable the field activities of the Palestinian resistance in Gaza without engaging in direct confrontation with it as it had happened in the last war.

He opined that the occupation also tries to change its rules of engagement and take advantage of the tense situation in the West Bank and the alleged rocket attacks from Gaza to achieve security gains.


FULL LIST OF ISRAELI CEASE FIRE VIOLATIONS

Last update April 3, 2013 by occpal

Continuously updated.

The overview below, only mentions attacks linked to media /HR- press releases and reports. World’s MSM stays silent and slams mum as Israel keeps violating the cease fire agreement relentlessly.

Although several NGO’s, human rights organisations condemned, the by local media documented attacks largely are being ignored by main stream news. (As usual)

Per report of Jan 28, 2013, health officials said there have been over 90 attacks since the cease fire (Reported by PRESSTV)

The overview below only contains attacks which could be linked to reported in media or written reports from Gaza. Violations occurred, may be added later, for not all attacks are covered immediately or not at all by media. Media not always covers separate incidents in a short while or on the same day as separate events, but as a single attack.

Aside from the wounded and killed in the related period, it is very important to reiterate again and again, one should not only behold the ‘body-count’ as Israel wants you to do. The policies, deployed by Israeli gov’t kill many more people than any ammunition does. The silenced genocide, by proxy. Most people do not even have the slightest idea of the MAGNITUDE of the genocide on Palestine

Kindly notice the Palestinian restraint so far. No rockets have been fired.

As usual too.

Israeli forces opened fire on fishermen off Gaza’s coast Saturday, two days after the Jewish state announced that it limited Palestinian sea travel in a move widely regarded as collective punishment.

Israel’s army announced Thursday that the fishing zone for Palestinians in Gaza would be reduced from six to three miles following a rocket attack launched earlier this week by a marginal Salafi group.

Fishermen in Gaza told Ma’an News Agency that Israel’s navy opened fire at them on Saturday to prevent them from going out further than three miles.

Mahfouth Kabariti, head of a federation for fishermen and water sports, confirmed that the Israeli navy had set up new signs defining the permitted fishing zone.

The zone had been extended to six miles as part of an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire that ended Israel’s eight-day assault on Gaza in November that killed 177 Palestinians and six Israelis.

Hamas complained to Egypt on Friday after Israel suspended part of a Cairo-brokered truce agreement. An Egyptian official confirmed that the Hamas complaint had been received, saying Israel had complained separately about the rocket attack.

The official said Cairo would contact both sides to “restore their commitment to the truce.”



UPDATE MARCH 21, 2013 | 124, 125, 126, 127th ISRAELI VIOLATION OF CEASE FIRE

Eyewitnesses reported that the Israeli Navy fired dozens of rounds of live ammunition at several fishing boats, and into the air in an attempt to force the fishermen back to the shore.

The fishermen were within the six-nautical mile area they are allowed to enter and fish, but the army attacked them.

The attack is similar to numerous attacks that led to dozens of casualties and significant damages.

Under the Oslo accords in the mid-nineties, the Palestinians are allowed to fish in 20 nautical miles off the Gaza shore, but in 2008, Israel unilaterally reduced the fishing area to three nautical miles.

As part of the ceasefire agreement that ended the Israeli war on Gaza in November 2012, Palestinian fishermen were allowed to fish within six nautical miles off the Gaza coast, but the army continued to attack them in their allotted areas.

Eyewitnesses told the PIC reporter that five IOF bulldozers advanced 200 meters from the eastern borders toward Juhr Al-Deek area and leveled land lots.

They said that the bulldozers removed weeds and growing wild plants, noting that it was the second such act in the area.

IOF soldiers in tanks and armored vehicles escorted bulldozers further south to the east of Rafah city.

Locals said the soldiers opened fire at farmers to force them abandon their land lots before starting to bulldoze the land in the proximity of the border fence.

IOF soldiers have raided border areas in Gaza on numerous occasions after the calm agreement was signed in late November last year. Indiscriminate shooting during those incursions led to many casualties among local inhabitants. (Reported by PIC)

603107_544491475561161_1887976171_nIsraeli Occupation Forces fire at Palestinians in Jabalia killed a man and wounding another

The martyr is the 19 years old Muhammad Al-Mamlouk.

ISM Palestine reports:

The fragile ceasefire announced on 21st November, following Israel’s eight-day offensive on Gaza, was yet again violated by the Israeli military today after a fatal attack on a group of Palestinian civilians east of Jabalia. 19 year-old Anwar Al-Malouk, a law student from the Shajaia district of Gaza City was shot dead and 21 year-old Omar Wadi from the Jabalia refugee camp, north of Gaza City, was injured as he came to Anwar’s aid.

Omar Wadi (21) sitting in his house in Jabalia refugee camp, still recoverig from wounds in both legs after being shot by Israeli soldiers on January 11th 2012, while he was in the "Buffer Zone". He was injuried by the shrapnel of a hollow-point bullet when he was trying to help Anwar Almalouk (19), who was shot in the stomach. Anwar would later die while being transferred to the hospital.

At about 2.30pm on 11th January, Omar was in a local cemetary visiting the graves of friends killed under the occupation. He noticed a group of around 30 Palestinians a few hundred metres away to the east, between the cemetary and the fence marking the eastern border of the Gaza Strip.

From the cemetary, which was over half a kilometre from the border fence, Omar approached the group to investigate the situation. Four Israeli military jeeps were positioned on the other side of the fence and around 12 Israeli soldiers were present, firing tear-gas canisters towards the group of Palestinians.

At this point, the group was at a distance of approximately 100 metres from the fence but then fled a further 100 metres back, amid the tear-gas attack. By around 4pm, Anwar had been separated from the group and remained alone about 40 metres from the fence, when he was shot by the soldiers and fell.

Three of the group, including Omar, went back to assist Anwar. Omar says he acted instinctively at the sight of a fellow Palestinian in danger and didn’t consider his own safety – despite not having previously known Anwar. As he arrived to where Anwar lay, he was hit in both legs by shrapnel from a hollow-tip bullet which exploded on impact with the ground nearby and showered metal fragments in his direction.

The two others managed to evacuate Omar and Anwar from the scene to safety but Anwar had sustained a serious gunshot wound to his abdomen and died en route to hospital. Anwar had to be driven from the area to the main road in a toc-toc, where he was then transferred to an ambulance. Unfortunately, by this time he had already passed away in the toc-toc.

At Kamal Adwan Hospital in Jabalia, Omar was treated for ankle injuries. He has since been released but the shrapnel remains embedded in his bones. As an outpatient of the osteological department, he must return next week for assessment regarding the possibility of surgery to remove the shrapnel. It is understandable that Omar was terrified during the attack. He has been traumatised by the experience and has not been able to sleep due to reliving the memory of it.

An X-ray showing the piece of shrapnel embedded in Omar´s leg (white spot).

Omar has two brothers and six sisters. His 18 year-old brother, Mohammed, was seriously injured during an Israeli incursion in the east of Jabalia five years ago when he was only 13 years old. Mohammed underwent treatment in Egypt for four months and is still receiving treatment in Gaza to this day. (Photo on the right: An X-ray showing the piece of shrapnel embedded in Omar´s leg (white spot).

The young mens’ father expressed concern about Omar ever visiting the cemetary again, whilst their mother said she feared one day all her sons would be killed. The Wadi family yearn for a genuine ceasefire yet anticipated from the outset that Israel would never respect it. Omar’s principal hope is that Israel’s crimes against Palestinians will end.

Anwar was the youngest son of the Al-Malouk family and the only one still living at home due to his older brothers being married. His 55 year-old mother hopes he is now at peace.

The first Palestinian killed after the ceasefire announcement was also named Anwar. On 23rd November, just two days into the agreement, Anwar Qudieh was shot dead, this time in the rural area of Abassan, east of Khan Younis in the south of the Gaza Strip.

There have been numerous Israeli attacks against Palestinian civilians in Gaza during the ceasefire. One can only imagine the response had it been the other way around.

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.

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.
