#GazaUnderAttack | Turkey plans to send new aid flotilla to Gaza

A Turkish aid group, whose Gaza-bound aid flotilla was assaulted by Israeli forces four years ago, says it will send ships to the besieged coastal enclave again.

Turkey’s Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) said on Monday that its move aims to challenge the Israeli blockade of Gaza.

Relations between the Israeli regime and Turkey soured in 2010 when Israeli commandos attacked the first Freedom Flotilla in international waters in the Mediterranean Sea on May 31, killing nine Turkish activists on board the Mavi Marmara. The tenth victim of the attack died of his injures in May 2014.

Outgoing Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in July that ties would remain frosty as long as Israel continues its Gaza offensive, noting that Tel Aviv must know that “if those massacres continue,” normalization of ties is out of question.

A total of 1,940 Palestinians, including 470 children, have so far been killed and nearly 10,000 injured since Israel first launched its latest military offensive against the Gaza Strip on July 8. While the Israeli army says around 65 Israelis have been killed in the conflict, the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas puts the number at more than 150.

Tel Aviv imposed an all-out land, aerial, and naval blockade on Gaza in June 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standards of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment and unrelenting poverty.

The siege has turned the densely-populated coastal sliver, home to nearly 1.8 million Palestinians, into the largest open-air prison in the world.

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.
