Israeli forces raided the villages of Beit Ummar and Halhul, to the north of Hebron, where they kidnapped four Palestinians between 17 and 20 years old, after breaking into and ransacking their homes.

They took another 18-year-old Palestinian from Beit Ummar, following a detention at the entrance of Al-‘Arroub refugee camp.

Forces also broke into and ransacked several other homes in Beit Ummar, serving three Palestinians — a father and his two sons, aged 48, 21 and 37 years — with notices to appear before Israeli intelligence, according to WAFA Palestinian News & Info Agency.

In the southern Hebron Governorate, the Israeli army demolished seven residential and agricultural structures in Kherbet al-Rahwa, a small village just adjacent to the town of Dahiriya, according to local sources.

Murad Jabarin, of the Union of Agricultural Work Committees, said that a large Israeli army unit, accompanied by heavy machinery and staff from the Israeli Civil Administration, stormed the village and demolished four residential structures, three animal barns, and three water cycles, under the pretext of being ‘built without a permit.’

According to Jabarin: “The occupation destroyed residents’ property in Rahwa and assaulted them during the demolition.” He added that the structures belonged to local residents of the village.

The Israeli army has intensified their demolition of privately-owned Palestinian homes in the Hebron area, during the recent months. Israeli authorities rarely issues construction permits for Palestinians living in Area C of the West Bank, which is under full Israeli civil and military control.

Over 550,000 Israelis currently live in illegal settlements across the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

In Bethlehem district, Israeli soldiers raided Dheisheh refugee camp to the south of the city, where they kidnapped one 20-year-old Palestinian after breaking into and ransacking his home.

At least four Palestinians were shot and injured with live bullets, on Monday, after the army stormed Dheisheh refugee camp, to the south of Bethlehem, according to security sources.

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.
