GAZA, (PIC)– Member of Hamas’s political bureau Mohamed Nazzal said that there are Israeli prisoners in Palestinian captivity in the Gaza Strip and his Movement is ready to engage in talks over them.

In press remarks on Wednesday, Nazzal asserted that his Movement is willing to discuss the issue of the Israeli prisoners, but that must be separated from the recent truce deal with Israel.

Al-Qassam Brigades of Hamas had declared on July 20 that it was able to capture an Israeli soldier identified as Shaul Aaron during a commando operation that led to the killing of 14 soldiers and injury of over 50 others.

Later, the Israeli army said it had lost contact with officer Hadar Goldin during armed clashes on Friday, August 1, 2014 with fighters from Al-Qassam Brigades to the east of Rafah area.

The Hamas official also stated that the Israeli leadership hid the true figures about the soldiers and officers killed and wounded during the war.

“Our sources indicate that the number of the killed officers and soldiers exceeded 1,000 and the wounded topped 2,000,” he said.

Nazzal highlighted what he described as the strategic achievements of the Palestinian resistance in Gaza, and expressed his belief that the resistance was able to debunk the theory of the invincible army.


 

THE LEGAL RIGHT OF RESISTANCE

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.
