#GazaUnderAttack | Israel continues attacks in southern and central Gaza, killing 7

  Monday August 04, 2014 23:11 by Celine Hagbard – IMEMC News

On Monday afternoon, Israeli attacks in different parts of Gaza continued – despite a unilateral declaration by Israel that they would pause their attacks for 7 hours on Monday. At least 30 people were killed by Israeli forces on Monday, with attacks taking place in all parts of the Gaza Strip.

In Rafah, an Israeli airstrike took the lives of two siblings, who were identified as:
Mohammad Amjad Awida’, age 12, and
Amal Amjad Awida’, age 5.

Another shelling in Rafah killed one person and wounded 11. The person killed was identified as:
Karam Mahrous Dahir, 24.

In Gaza City, two people who were killed by Israeli airstrikes were brought to Shifa Hospital, identified as:
Ibrahim al-Masharawi, 30 years
Ebtisam al-Bakri, 38 years

Another member of the al-Bakri family, an 8-year old child, was killed earlier on Monday after an Israeli airstrike on the family home. Ebtisam was critically wounded in the same attack and died of her injuries several hours later.

Medical sources at Nassar Hospital, in Khan Younis, report the arrival of the corpses of two people killed by Israeli attacks in the southern part of the Gaza Strip. They were identified as:
Mahmoud Zaki al-Laham, 25
Ahmad Abdel-Halim Mohammad al-Astal, 26.

In addition, the Palestinian Ministry of Health reports the recovery of 32 bodies from different parts of Gaza who were buried under the rubble from Israeli bombings over the past several days.

This takes the death toll of Palestinians killed since the Israeli invasion began on July 8th to 1865 killed, with 9470 wounded, an estimated 30% of whom will be crippled for life or face debilitating disabilities due to their injuries, according to the Ministry of Health.

The History of Resistance – The Eagle of Palestine


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.
