Several Palestinians have been killed and dozens more injured in fresh Israeli aerial attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip over the past few hours.

The casualties come as Israeli warplanes bombed residential areas in the besieged Palestinian enclave on Friday.

Palestinian sources say the latest fatalities included two people in al-Nusairat and two others in Deir al-Balah. Two people, a man and a child, have also died of injuries.

A couple of other people had earlier been killed in Rafah, south of Gaza, while riding on a motorcycle.

Also, at least four people were killed when an Israeli airstrike targeted a cemetery.  The victims were burying their relatives who had been killed in an overnight attack.

The Palestinian Health Ministry says at least 37 people have been killed during the Israeli aggression since Thursday morning.

Friday marked the third day of continued fighting in the coastal enclave following the collapse of ceasefire talks in Egypt.

Meanwhile, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have called for more retaliatory responses to the Israeli attacks following the killing of three senior commanders of the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, in an airstrike in Rafah.

Mohammed Abu Shammala, Raed al-Attar and Mohammed Barhoum, the commanders of the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, which is the military wing of Hamas, were killed in an Israeli airstrike on the Tel al-Sultan refugee camp in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip on Thursday.

The death toll from the Israeli war in the Gaza Strip stands at above 2,090. Some 10,300 others have also been wounded since the Israeli aggression began on July 8.

Hamas Political Bureau chief Khaled Meshaal has recently said the Palestinian delegation will only resume talks on a lasting truce with Israel, if Tel Aviv agrees to lift the siege of the Gaza Strip.

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.
