The Islamic resistance movement Hamas will not exercise any restraint if Israel breaks the ceasefire agreement and will retaliate, a Hamas official said.Speaking to Al Jazeera, the movement’s Head of Foreign Relations, Osama Hamdan, said the Palestinian factions had agreed to observe a 72-hour humanitarian ceasefire, but added that if Israel breaches the agreement, it will face international sanctions.

Israel and the Palestinian factions agreed to observe a 72-hour unconditional humanitarian ceasefire to commence on Friday morning at 8:00 am local time, in response to an invitation from the United Nations.

However, the ceasefire reportedly broke down almost immediately, with an Israeli security official telling Haaretz newspaper shortly after 10:00 am that: “We informed UN envoy Robert Serry that the humanitarian ceasefire is over.”

Reuters reported that 40 Palestinians had already been killed in the south of Gaza on Friday as of early afternoon, making it one of the deadliest days in the weeks-long conflict.

According to the ceasefire, a Palestinian delegation comprising all factions was to visit Cairo to discuss a lasting ceasefire agreement. Hamdan said that the Palestinian factions agreed to observe the ceasefire taking into account the Palestinian people’s conditions so that urgent humanitarian aid could be distributed to the citizens in Gaza during the period of calm.

But with the ceasefire falling apart so quickly, the Palestinians in Gaza will continue to face a desperate humanitarian crisis and it is unclear whether or not the talks in Cairo between the Palestinians and the Israelis will still take place.

Is Resisting Genocide a Human Right?

81 Notre Dame Law Review1275(2006). Conducting an in-depth study of the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, and also discussing other genocides, this article details the inadequacy of many of the international community’s response to genocides, such as “targeted sanctions” or international peacekeeping forces. Examining international legal authorities such as the Genocide Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Court of Justice, the article demonstrates that groups which are being subjected to genocide have a legal right of self-defense. International treaties, Security Council arms embargoes, or national gun control laws cannot lawfully be enforced in a manner which prevents self-defense resistance to a genocide in progress, because under international law, the prohibition against any form of complicity in genocide takes legal precedence over lesser laws.

* 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.
