RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) arrested at dawn Monday 11 Palestinians in the West Bank after storming various cities and villages.

Local sources said that that two Palestinians, affiliated with the popular front for the liberation of Palestine, were arrested on Monday after raiding their homes. The two detainees were previously held more than once in Israeli jails. Heavy tear gas bombs were fired during the raid.

In Nablus, IOF soldiers raided Burin village, south of the city, and carried out break-ins into several homes.

Eyewitnesses told the PIC reporter that a Palestinian young man was taken from his home in the village before being released an hour later.

Two young men were arrested in Asker refugee camp to the east of Nablus city at dawn Monday while one was arrested in Qabalan village to the south of Nablus and two others from the city itself.

IOF soldiers nabbed three Palestinian citizens in Bethlehem governorate and one in Tulkarem.

In occupied Jerusalem, the Israeli occupation authorities released four Palestinian youths and placed them under house arrest for one week and barred their access into al-Aqsa Mosque for a whole month, in addition to imposing a fine estimated at 10,000 shekels.

Palestinian Prisoners Society revealed that the four Jerusalemite youths were subjected to investigation for four days after being detained from their homes and workplaces.

Israeli police arrested two other Jerusalemite young men on Sunday, the sources added.

Meanwhile, Israeli-controlled municipality of Jerusalem issued on Sunday demolition orders for the second time against two homes, including 4 apartments, in Silwan in occupied Jerusalem under the pretext of being built without permit.

The two buildings, established ten years ago, were notified four days ago with the demolition. The two buildings provide shelter for 18 individuals.

On September 12, the IOA imposed on the family a fine of 650,000 shekels in order not to carry out the demolition process.



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.
