[ PIC 25/08/2014 – 02:33 PM ]

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– A number of Palestinian students were injured on Monday when Israeli occupation forces (IOF) brutally stormed an elementary school in the Old City of al-Khalil.

Local sources told a PIC reporter that IOF soldiers surrounded the school and started firing tear gas bombs inside it, which led to breathing problems among the students and their teachers.

The soldiers prevented the access of ambulance crews into the school, the sources added.

The students’ parents were also denied from checking on their children, while the director of the school appealed to human rights institutions to intervene and lift the military siege on the school.

Along the same line, IOF soldiers stormed at dawn Monday Aroub refugee camp to the north of al-Khalil. Tear gas and sound bombs were fired during the raid amid large presence of Israeli troops.

In Nablus, IOF closed on Monday morning all roads leading to Burin village, south of the city, and prevented the residents’ movement.

Military checkpoints were set up at the entrances to the village, the sources added.

Late Sunday, Israeli forces stormed the village and broke into a number of homes. A young man was detained for a short time before being released during the night incursion.



Is Resisting Genocide a Human Right?


Right to Resist

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.

Genocide in Photos

Since 1937 (Pre)Israel terrorism commits ongoing massacres in Palestine. Violent genocide, but the least known, silent genocide causing excess death by deliberate racist policies of deprivation. The same deprivation which according the Israeli narrative have cost 1/6 of Jewish Holocaust victims (1 of 6 million). The cost in human lives by avoidable mortality for the sake of the creation of Israel according to research (by Dr. Gideon Polya) in Palestine and neighboring countries is 24 million lives.
