GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri on Monday condemned the demolition of two Hebron homes which belong to suspects named by Israel in the kidnapping and killing of three Israeli teenagers.

Israel’s policy of house demolitions “will not break the Palestinians’ will,” Abu Zuhri said, adding that Israel is responsible for the consequences of its crimes in the West Bank.

Israeli forces demolished the homes of Amir Abu Eisha and Husam al-Qawasmi and sealed off the home of Marwan Qawasmi by pumping concrete into the property.

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — Israeli forces demolished a residential building in the al-Tur neighborhood of Jerusalem on Monday on the pretext that it was built without a permit.

Members of the Ghazzawi family, who own the building, told Ma’an that Israeli soldiers escorted bulldozers to the area and began tearing down the building.

Family members were not given any time to remove their belongings.

Tawfiq Ghazzawi said the two-story building was built in 1997 and contained two apartments, one for him and his mother and another for his brother, Ayid.

The family have already paid fines of over 200,000 shekels ($57,126) and have been refused a construction permit several times by Israel’s Jerusalem municipality.

Israel rarely grants Palestinians permits to build in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. It has demolished at least 27,000 Palestinian homes and structures since occupying the West Bank in 1967, according to the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

HEBRON (Ma’an) — Israeli forces overnight Sunday demolished the Hebron homes of two Palestinians named as suspects in the kidnapping of three Israeli teenagers in June, locals said.

Israeli forces demolished the homes of Amir Abu Eisha and Husam al-Qawasmi and sealed off the home of Marwan Qawasmi by pumping concrete into the property.

Locals said large numbers of Israeli forces arrived first at the home of Abu Eisha in the Wadi al-Sir neighborhood and ordered the family to evacuate the home.

Army engineers then set explosives in the house and blew up the property, turning it into rubble.

Israeli soldiers then moved to the Abu Kteila neighborhood and destroyed the home of Husam al-Qawasmi.

Clashes broke out between locals and soldiers, with several Palestinians injured by rubber-coated steel bullets, including a journalist Radi Karamah.

The home of Marwan Qawasmi was sealed off by pumping large amounts of concrete into the house. Several mixer trucks were at the scene of the incident.

Israel accuses the three men of kidnapping and killing three Israeli teenagers near the illegal Gush Etzion settlement bloc in Hebron in early June.

Marwan Qawasmi was detained by Israeli forces in July. Israel accuses Qawasmi of ordering Abu Eisha and Husam al-Qawasmi to carry out the abduction.

Israeli rights group Hamoked had petitioned the Israeli high court to stop the demolitions, arguing that the measure would harm innocent people, including children, and constitutes collective punishment.

“The demolition of the terrorists’ homes conveys a clear message to terrorists and their accomplices that there is a personal price to pay when engaging in terror and carrying out attacks against Israelis,” Israeli army spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said.

Israel launched a widespread search and arrest campaign in the occupied West Bank following the kidnapping of the teenagers, targeting Hamas affiliates and infrastructure and detaining hundreds of people.

Israeli forces killed at least six Palestinians during the arrest raids.

Jewish extremists kidnapped and killed Palestinian teenager Muhammad Abu Khdeir in early July in a revenge attack.

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.
