At least two more Palestinians have lost their lives in Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip, with reports saying that Israeli fighter jets targeted the Palestinian territory 15 times since the early hours of Tuesday.
Israel also carried out attacks on a tower in al-Nasr neighborhood in Gaza City on Monday, injuring 20 Palestinians.

According to Palestinian media reports, several people were injured on the same day in an Israeli assault on a UN school in Jabalia, north of Gaza City.

Palestinian health officials have said at least 89 entire families have been killed in Gaza since Israel started its offensive on July 8.

Meanwhile, several Israelis were injured when a rocket fired by Palestinian resistance fighters in the Gaza Strip hit the city of Ashkelon on Tuesday.

The Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, fired an R-160 rocket on Haifa and four M-75 rockets on Tel Aviv.

According to the Israeli army, the Palestinians bombarded Israel with more than 100 rockets on Monday.

The Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades launched retaliatory rockets against several Israeli cities, including Tel Aviv, Sha’ar HaNegev and Sdot Negev.

More than 2,135 Palestinians, including around 570 children, have been killed so far in the Israeli onslaught on Gaza. Some 11,000 others have been wounded.

Tel Aviv says 68 Israelis have been killed in the conflict, but Hamas puts the number at more than 150.

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.
