#GazaUnderAttack | Euro-mid: Israel repeatedly and intentionally violated international law

[ PIC 05/08/2014 – 12:09 PM ]
GAZA, (PIC)– The Euro-mid Observer for Human Rights, based in Geneva, has charged in a new report issued at dawn Tuesday that Israel repeatedly and intentionally violated international law and conventions by targeting unarmed civilians and UN institutions in Gaza.

According to the Euro-mid, the number of victims on Monday, the 28th day of the Israeli aggression, reached 56 people, including 22 children and 9 women. This brings the total number of casualties since the beginning of the Israeli attacks to 1865 people, of which 426 are children and 254 are women.

The number of wounded on the 28th day of the aggression is 198 wounded, including 72 children and 59 women. Their injuries range from light to serious; bringing up the total number of wounded since the beginning of the attacks to 9,563 wounded including 2,877 children and 1,927 women.

On Monday 4 August, Euro-Mid documented 330 missile fired by Israeli forces; including 99 airstrikes, 34 naval strikes and 167 artillery shells. The total number of Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip since the beginning of the Israeli military operation has increased dramatically, reaching 59,200 attacks including 7,178 airstrikes, 15,580 naval projectiles and 36,442 artillery shells.

Along the same line, 121 houses were destroyed on Monday, 19 were totally destroyed and 102 were partially destroyed; bringing up the total number of damaged houses since the beginning of the attacks to 10,604 houses; of which 1,724 were totally destroyed and 8,880 were partially destroyed.

Euro-mid has pointed to the targeting of 7 mosques on Sunday, bringing up the total number to 134 mosques, of which 43 were totally destroyed, while 10 Islamic cemeteries and another Christian cemetery were bombed.

At least 200 schools where 150,000 students go to were damaged since the start of the aggression.

Israeli ongoing attacks deepened the economic underlying crisis to which Gazans have been subjected to for nearly 8 years due to the Israeli siege. It is estimated that the Israeli assault’s damages amount to approximately to 812 million dollars, including 503 dollars direct damages.

Euro-mid has also pointed to the displacement of several families who left their homes and turned to other citizens’ houses or to dozens of UNRWA schools which remain unsafe places for shelter after being targeted by Israeli forces. Euro-mid estimates the number of refugees to be more than 475,000 people so far.

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.
