It said around 11100, including 3374 children, 2088 women and 410 elderly, have been injured.

The Ministry said that the army targeted entire families in the coastal region, killing members of 100 families in Gaza, wiping out entire families.

The majority of Palestinians killed and injured by Israeli missiles and shells are civilians, including infants, children, teenagers, women and elderly, in addition to rescue operators, medics and journalists.

The Ministry stated that Israel deliberately targeted 15671 Palestinian homes, destroying and flattening 2276 homes, and causing partial damage to 13395 homes, rendering them uninhabitable, while thousands of homes sustained partial damage.

It added that Israeli missiles and shells have killed 23 medical workers, while 83 others have been injured.

In addition, Israeli missiles targeted 190 mosques in different parts of the Gaza Strip, flattening and destroying 70 mosques, while 120 sustained partial damage, the Ministry of Waqf and Religious Affairs said.

The Israeli army also fired missiles into 143 schools, including UNRWA-run schools, destroying 24 of them, the Ministry of Education said.

Dozens of residents have been killed and injured, during Israeli bombardment of schools where the residents sought shelter.

Around 500.000 Palestinians had to leave their homes, mostly because they were bombarded; many sought shelter in homes of relatives, in areas of lesser bombardment in the Gaza Strip, and more than 200.000 of them sought shelter in UNRWA and governmental schools.

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.
