#GazaUnderAttack | Truce Ends, Rockets Fired at Israel

  Friday August 08, 2014 10:39 by Chris Carlson – 1 of International Middle East Media Center Editorial Group

As the 72-hour temporary truce comes to an unsatisfactory end, with Israel failing to meet demands presented by negotiators in Cairo, Palestinian resistance in Gaza has fired a number of rockets into Israel within minutes of the ceasefire’s expiration.

According to the Israeli military, at least five rockets were fired.

“A rocket was intercepted over Ashkelon,” a statement read. “Additional rockets hit open areas in southern Israel.”

Al-Quds Brigade, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, took responsibility for three grad rockets fired towards Ashkelon. The brigade is also reported to have targeted Eshkol with four missiles, and Kisufim with five 107 rockets.

Al-Asifah, a military wing of the Fatah faction, also claimed responsibility for targeting Ashkelon with three missiles, according to Ma’an.

Al-Nassar Salah al-Din Brigades claimed two grad missiles fired at Ashkelon, and five rockets at Eshkol.

Israel also fired a missile east of Gaza City.

Al-Quds Brigades retaliated with a shell into the Nahal’Oz Military base, across the border.

“All the Palestinian factions, including Hamas, have agreed not to renew the ceasefire because (Israel) is refusing to accommodate our demands, but negotiations continue in Cairo,” Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhum declared to AFP.

Thousands of Palestinians have now left their homes, in fear of renewed Israeli attacks.

THE LEGAL RIGHT OF RESISTANCE

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.
