 Sunday August 24, 2014 14:22 by IMEMC News & Agencies – 1 of International Middle East Media Center Editorial Group

A young Palestinian man from the Shu’fat refugee camp, was hit in the abdomen by two rounds of live Israeli fire from Jerusalem police, in occupied East Jerusalem, on Saturday.


Fatah movement spokesman Thaer al-Fasfous told Ma’an News Agency that fire was opened on Palestinian houses from the illegal settlmelent of Pisgat Zeev, allegedly in response to fire from Shu’fat on the settlement, between Friday and Saturday.

20-year-old Yahya Alqam was evacuated to Hadassah hospital and placed in intensive care, with Israeli officers stationed outside the room, indicating that he was under arrest.

The officers additionally questioned young Palestinian men who went to check on Alqam in the hospital, according to al-Fasfous.

Shu’fat refugee camp is located in Israeli-occupied East Jerusalem, and surrounded by the infamous “separation wall”.

Its 20,000 residents are among the poorest in East Jerusalem, according to Ma’an.

More than 200,000 Israelis live in illegal colonial settlements built in and around Palestinian neighborhoods in the area. Movement between the camp and neighboring areas is regulated by military checkpoints.

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.
