RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Jewish terrorist gangs seized 774 Palestinian villages and cities and committed 70 massacres that reaped the lives of 15,000 Palestinians in 1948 to create Israel, Palestinian official statistics revealed.

About 800 thousand Palestinians were forcibly displaced from their homelands to the West Bank, Gaza, and the Diaspora in addition the expulsion of thousands from their homes and villages but they remained in 1948-occupied Palestine, a press release issued by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS) stated.

The percentage of refugees reached 44.2% of the total population in 2012, while UNRWA has reported 5.3 million Palestinian refugees mid 2013 (45.7% of the Palestinian population), the press release noted.

The statistics revealed that 59% of the Palestinian refugees live in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, while 17% in the West Bank, and 24% in the Gaza Strip. Nearly 29 % of the Palestinian refugees are currently in 58 camps, where there are 10 camps in Jordan, 9 camps in Syria, 12 camps in Lebanon, and 19 camps in the West Bank, in addition to 8 refugee camps in the Gaza Strip.

During the Nakba, there were 1.37 million Palestinians while the number has multiplied 8.5 times to reach 11.4 million Palestinians worldwide in 2012.

The statistics pointed out that about 5.8 million Palestinians live in the Palestinian historical territories (from the river to the sea) in 2012, expecting that their number will reach 7.2 million by the end of 2020.

Gaza became after the Nakba one of the most densely populated regions in the world. The population density in the Gaza Strip is 11 times that of 1948-occupied Palestine.

PCBS stated that there are 474 Israeli settlements, outposts and military bases in the West Bank by the end of 2011, while the Israeli settlers’ numbers in West Bank has totaled 537 thousand settlers by end of 2011.

The press release indicated that the number of settlers in Jerusalem reaches nearly 268 thousand settlers and constitutes 49.8% of all West Bank settlers. Jews arrogated more than 85% of the total area of historical Palestinian.

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 by media displayed narrative of a bodycount – victims fallen by direct violence – does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which mostly stay undocumented. 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 media 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 organizations. 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.
