According to the statement, 30,000 workers lost their jobs due to the latest Israeli war on the Strip, as a large number of factories, shops and economic firms have been destroyed. The number of workers who are out of work because of the ongoing siege is 170,000.

The Palestinian Labourers’ Federation in Gaza said on Sunday that more than 200,000 workers are now unemployed because of the effects of the eight-year-long Israeli siege and the latest assault against the Gaza Strip, Anadolu news agency reported.The federation described how the workers in Gaza are experiencing difficult living conditions. “About 200,000 out of the total 330,000 workforce are currently unemployed,” a statement issued by the federation reportedly said.

According to the statement, 30,000 workers lost their jobs due to the latest Israeli war on the Strip, as a large number of factories, shops and economic firms have been destroyed. The number of workers who are out of work because of the ongoing siege is 170,000.

Anadolu quoted the head of the Palestinian Businessmen Association, Ali Al-Hayek, as saying that Israeli occupation forces had already completely destroyed 450 factories and partially destroyed some 500 factories during the latest war.

Israel has been waging a massive military campaign against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip since 7 July, killing more than 2,000 Palestinians and wounding more than 10,000 others.

So far, more than 38,086 civilian facilities, including houses, government offices, schools, mosques, cemeteries, etc… have been completely or partially destroyed.

Furthermore, since 2006, when Hamas won a majority in the Palestinian parliamentarian elections, the Israeli occupation has been imposing a strict siege on the Gaza Strip.

Despite collective punishment being a violation of international law, the siege has tacit regional and international support because Israel, which keeps killing Palestinians and building illegal settlements, claims that Hamas is a terrorist organisation rather than a resistance movement.

Palestinian negotiators in Cairo are insisting on a full and immediate end to the siege before accepting any ceasefire agreement with the Israeli occupation.

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.
