Gaza

The Palestinian Authority would be “traitors” if they agreed to a condition the UK is seeking to impose in exchange for agreeing to  support Palestine upgrading its membership in the UN. So said Raji Sourani, Director of the Palestine Center for Human Rights (PCHR) at a meeting with lawyers from the National Lawyers Guild (NLG) in Gaza City today.

 

As a result of the Israeli aggression on Gaza protest demonstrations and solidarity marches was arranged all over the West Bank – From Jenin in the north to Hebron in the south. Once again the occupation forces of Israel suppressed the popular resistance of the Palestinians.

GAZA, November 21, 2012 (WAFA) – The ongoing war on Gaza Wednesday resulted in the killing of five Palestinians and the injury of several others, some seriously, raising the death toll to 163, according to local sources.

They said three Palestinians, a father and his son and daughter, were killed and another was critically injured in an Israeli strike that targeted a residential area in al-Saftawi, north of Gaza.

The family, Talal, Ayman, and Abeer al Asali were standing near the house when the missile hit them. The injured were transferred to hospital for treatment.

From Norway – in solidarity
Gaza demonstrations November 17th

The Palestine Committee of Norway arranged several big and small demonstrations in support for our friends in Palestine, and especially the inhabitants of the Gaza Strip, Saturday November 17th. In the main cities, Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim, Tromsø, Lillehammer, Hamar, Narvik, but also in smaller towns, people met to condemn the attacks, the bombing, the killings of civilians, but also to protest against the Israeli occupation.

The slogans for the day were:
Stop Israelis terror on Gaza
End the blockade

GAZA, November 20, 2012 (WAFA) – The death toll of Palestinians killed in seven days of Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip reached 113 on Tuesday, a large number of them are children and women, and three killed in early hour strikes on and around Gaza City.

Medical sources said two people were killed, including a farmer from Beit Lahia, north of the Gaza Strip, when Israeli warplanes fired missiles at agricultural land in the area.

Another Palestinian was killed and his son injured in an air raid on al-Mighraga area, south of the Gaza Strip, sources at Shifa hospital said.

19.11.2012. Approximately 100 of the popular resistance activists and foreigners showing their solidarity cut open 30 meters of the fence belonging to the apartheid wall in Rafat, in the Ramallah and al-Bireh region, and raised the Palestinian flag.
The coordinator for Stop the Wall, Ahad Khawaja, said that the activist afterwards tried to close the settler road of Ofra, and that the Israeli army responded by shooting live rounds at the demonstrators.

GAZA, November 19, 2012 (WAFA) – The number of Palestinians who were killed in the ongoing Israeli attacks launched against the Gaza Strip for the Sixth day in a row since November 14 reached 90, with more than 900 injuries; mostly children, women and elderly.

Israeli air forces targeted al-Dallou family house in Nasser neighborhood, in the city of Gaza, killing 11 members of them. Ambulance crews pulled the bodies from under the rubble and recognized the dead as Sulafa, Samah and Tahani al-Dallou, 50, 25, 46, and Abdullah and Amena al-Mizner, 23, 83.

Expulsion of Palestinians has begun in Tamoon, north of Tobas in the Jordan Valley as the Occupation begins the eastern phase of the Apartheid Wall. Designed to ensure the expansion of the settlements, the Wall is ultimately geared towards the annexation of the entire Valley.




For the last month villagers from Masha in Salfit district have been barred from accessing their lands isolated behind the Apartheid Wall. Occupation Forces have claimed closures to the prison gates to the lands are “seasonal” but have now begun uprooting the isolated lands for settler expansion. Meanwhile Palestinians in Masha were subject to a brutal attack by Occupation settlers - part of the ongoing Zionist project of forced expulsion of villagers from their lands.



Sharon continues to push his ‘Gaza disengagement plan’ despite obstinate opposition from within the Likud. The defeat by his far-right constituency in the party referendum on May 2 was a further indicator that Israeli party politics is beholden to the extremists of the extreme.




***image1***For the past week Israel has been rampaging through Rafah, massacring civilians and demolitioning homes in an operation aimed at annihilating a major part of the refugee camp near the border between Gaza and Egypt. Part of this operation will be the continued construction of the 7km Iron Wall that runs through the border area. The building of Walls in Gaza and the West Bank is neither about Israeli security nor about separation, but rather as a means of control, land theft, imprisonment, and in the end expulsion.

***image1***The Occupation is using their supreme court’s decision as a green light to destroy what little is left of Rafah camp. Starting from yesterday Occupation forces isolated the camp from the rest of Gaza Strip, blocking the main road to Khan Younis with tanks. The Occupation forces are planning a huge incursion with massive destruction including large-scale house demolitions and massacres against Palestinians, if need be.

These images show the extent of the devastation to the area of Rafah which runs alongside the Wall constructed there. Most houses are have been either heavily damaged by Occupation forces, or completely destroyed. Homes that are not destroyed have been abandoned, and the area turned into a wasteland.

Israeli officials were badly shaken by the success of two 18-year-old men from Jabaliya refugee camp who exited the Gaza Strip undetected and then penetrated the security of nearby Ashdod's port.



The pair detonated their explosives at separate locations, killing 10 Israeli port workers. One of the men nearly reached his supposed target, a fuel depot, where an explosion could have resulted in far higher casualties.
