Israel kills three Gazans, stamps out family homes shortly before ceasefire

[ PIC 27/08/2014 – 07:11 AM ]

RAFAH, (PIC)– A barrage of renewed Israeli airstrikes rocking besieged Gaza on Tuesday afternoon claimed the lives of at least three Palestinian youths and knocked down three civilian homes just a few hours before a long-term ceasefire was to be put into effect.

The three young men were killed after an Israeli drone fired a missile on a civilian community in eastern Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip, an on-the-spot-observer reported.

Palestinian medics said Abu Youssef al-Najjar hospital received the three bodies of the killed youths, identified as: Ahmad Abu Jarbou, 25, Youssef Ghanam, 23, and Muhammad al-Ribati, 24.

Two more injured civilians were rushed to the hospital for urgent treatment.

The Israeli fighter jets shelled a civilian apartment tower in al-Sheikh Zayed city, north of the Gaza Strip.

At least 2,145 were killed by Israel’s mounting acts of terror rocking the besieged enclave since July 7.

In a related incident, the Israeli occupation warplanes hit on Tuesday afternoon the family home of prominent Islamic Jihad leader, Nafed Azzam in al-Barazil neighborhood, in Rafah city, razing the entire residential building to the ground, a by-stander at the scene reported.

The Israeli jets bombed at least two more civilian homes, belonging to the Subh and Jabeur families, in Jabalia, to the north of Gaza.

Political analysts said the fact that such attacks came a couple of hours before the launch of an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire deal between Hamas and the Israeli occupation, unveils Israel’s procrastination and lackadaisical attitude vis-à-vis projected peace processes in Gaza, unlike what has been spread around media outlets.

The Israeli occupation warplanes have stepped up their wanton raids on Palestinian civilian homes and cultivated lands throughout the Gaza offensive. Scores of Gaza offspring and women have gone homeless as a result while hundreds of others have lost their own and only livelihoods in the 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.
