RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Friday afternoon attacked several massive rallies organized in solidarity with the Gaza Strip in different areas of the West Bank.

In Bethlehem, a young man suffered a rubber bullet injury and many others suffocated after inhaling tear gas during confrontations with Israeli soldiers in the vicinity of Bilal Bin Rabah Mosque to the north of the city.

Similar confrontations took place in Al-Khalil city, particularly in Bab Azzawiya area. Both of the marches in Bethlehem and Al-Khalil were organized by the Hamas Movement.

In Ramallah, policemen from the Palestinian Authority prevented pro-Gaza protestors from carrying Hamas flags and confiscated them during a massive march organized after the Friday prayers in the central area of the city.

Later during the march, several protestors suffered different injuries during violent clashes with Israeli troops.

In the weekly anti-settlement marches in Bil’in and Nabi Saleh, the participants carried banners and chanted slogans condemning Israel’s war crimes in Gaza. Many protestors suffered injuries when soldiers violently quelled the rallies.

Hundreds of citizens also participated in a march staged in Nablus city in support of the Palestinian resistance.

During the march, the participants carried Hamas banners and chanted slogans in support of the resistance in Gaza.

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.
