AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– At least seven Palestinians were injured during clashes with Israeli invading forces that broke out Friday in Beit Ummar village to the south of al-Khalil.

Local sources told Quds Press that a Palestinian young man was repeatedly shot by a silencer gun fired at him near Karmi Tsur settlement. He was taken to hospital where his condition was described as “stable”.

Six other citizens were wounded during the clashes including a girl who was deliberately hit in her head with a rubber bullet.

The five other injured youths were shot with rubber bullets during the clashes that witnessed heavy firing of live and rubber bullets on the part of the Israeli soldiers. Dozens have also suffered breathing problems after inhaling tear gas bombs.

The protesters managed to throw a Molotov cocktail towards the settlement which started fire in trees and weeds. Soldiers and settlers put off the fire.

On the other hand, Israeli occupation forces suppressed the weekly marches organized throughout the West Bank against the Apartheid Wall and settlement construction. Five Jerusalemites were arrested during overnight clashes.

In Ramallah, Israeli soldiers violently attacked Palestinians who participated in the weekly march of Nabi Saleh village. Dozens of injures were documented among the demonstrators.

IOF soldiers stormed the village and fired tear gas bombs at the houses, local sources added. A number of citizens were detained during the clashes.

Tight military measures were enforced since the early morning hours in the village where a large number of Israeli forces were deployed at its entrance and prevented people movement.

In Bethlehem, Israeli soldiers suppressed the peaceful march against settlement expansion in Ma’sara town and brutally attacked the participants.




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.
