Palestinians celebrate their victory over Israel following a ceasefire on August 26, 2014.

 

An agreement on a permanent ceasefire for the besieged Gaza Strip is tantamount to the victory of the Palestinian resistance against the Israeli regime, says the representative in Iran of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas.

Palestine has won over evil, Khaled al-Qaddoumi said in a statement on Tuesday after the announcement of the agreement.

Palestinian resistance groups and Israeli officials on Tuesday clinched a deal on a permanent ceasefire for the blockaded Gaza Strip.

The truce will rid the territory of its seven-year-old blockade.

In the statement, Qaddoumi expressed felicitations to the Palestinian people and the brave resistance which strongly stood up to the criminal Israeli regime.

He said he dedicates this victory to all Palestinians including children who lost their lives in the 51-day fight against the Israeli regime.

After 51 days of war, the Zionist enemy was forced to concede defeat and succumb to the demands of, and conditions set by the Palestinian people and the resistance, he added.

The brave Palestinian resistance succeeded in meeting public demands, lifting the Gaza blockade and reopening border crossings while it would begin to reconstruct the enclave in the near future, the statement said.

It emphasized that the resistance would attempt to secure the release of Palestinian inmates in the Israeli regime’s prisons in the next step.

Israel launched an aerial military campaign against Gaza in early July and later expanded its operation with a ground invasion.

More than 2,137 Palestinians, including around 570 children, have been killed so far in the Israeli onslaught on Gaza. Some 11,000 others have been wounded.

Most of the victims were civilians, including children, women and the elderly.

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.
