leave a comment »

Israeli soldiers attacked, Friday, the weekly nonviolent protest against the Annexation Wall and settlements, in Bil’in village near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, causing scores of injuries.

Bilin 07 31 2015

The Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements In Bil’in has reported that the soldiers fired dozens of gas bombs, concussion grenades and rubber-coated metal bullets on the Palestinian, Israeli and international peace activists as they marched towards the Wall.

The soldiers also chased the protesters into the village’s olive orchards, and fired gas bombs at them, causing scores of injuries, while army fire set several trees ablaze in an orchard belonging to resident Khalil Abu Rahma.

The protesters marched from the center of the village, heading towards the Wall, carrying Palestinian flags and posters while chanting for steadfastness, liberation and the removal of Israel’s illegal colonies.

They also called for ongoing popular resistance against the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestine, and for the liberation of all detainees.

The Popular Committee strongly denounced the attack by Israeli fanatics on a Palestinian family near Nablus as they slept, by hurling firebombs on their home, torching it and leading to the death of an 18-month-old baby, and seriously wounding his family.

It said such criminal attacks are taking place under Israeli military protection, and called on all human rights and legal groups around the world to hold Israel accountable for its escalating massacres and crimes against the Palestinian people

Rights group: Israel’s force-feed law proves its racist nature

leave a comment »

NAZARETH, (PIC)– Al-Mizan Center for Human Rights stated in statement issued Thursday that Israel’s force-feed law mainly aims at breaking the will of Palestinian prisoners in face of its brutal measures and practices.

It is clear that force-feed law proves Israel as a racist state, the center said.

The center called for uniting all national and international efforts to deter Israel that “considers itself a state above UN resolutions and laws.”

Earlier Thursday, the Israeli Knesset passed Force-feed law by a majority of 46 votes to 40.

The law, which seeks to prevent imprisoned Palestinian prisoners from launching hunger strikes, was initially approved in June 2014 at the height of a mass hunger strike of Palestinian detainees.

EU urges Israel to halt settler violence after baby killing

Palestinians look at the damage at a house where 18-month-old Palestinian toddler Ali Saad Dawabsha died in an arson attack by Israeli settlers, in the West Bank village of Duma, July 31, 2015

The European Union (EU) has called on the Israeli regime to demonstrate “zero tolerance” for the persisting settler violence against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank after an arson attack by a group of settlers killed a Palestinian toddler.

“The Israeli authorities should… take resolute measures to protect the local population. We call for full accountability, effective law enforcement and zero tolerance for settler violence,” read a Friday statement released by a spokesperson for EU’s foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.

“The cold-blooded killing of Palestinian toddler Ali Dawabsha, presumably by extremist settlers… highlights the urgent need for a political solution of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict,” the statement read.

Eighteen-month-old Ali Saad Dawabsha was burnt to death earlier on Friday when Israeli settlers threw incendiary objects at Palestinian houses in the West Bank village of Duma, south of Nablus. The baby’s parents and his four-year-old brother were also injured in the arson attack.


Palestinians attend the funeral of 18-month-old Palestinian toddler Ali Saad Dawabsha July 31, 2015.

The assailants reportedly came from the nearby settlement of Ma’akeg Efraim.

In its statement, the EU urged a “full and prompt investigation to bring the perpetrators of this terrible crime to justice.”

“Acts like this terrible attack can easily lead to a spiral of violence and bring both sides further away from a negotiated solution,” read the statement.

Condemning settlement policy

The arson attack came shortly after Israeli Premier Benjamin Netanyahu approved 300 new settler homes in the West Bank.

“The EU reiterates its strong opposition to Israel’s settlement policy that seriously threatens the two-state solution,” the EU statement said.

Israeli settlers have carried out at least 120 attacks on Palestinians in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) and the West Bank since the start of 2015, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

More than half a million Israelis live in over 120 illegal settlements built since the Israeli regime’s occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds in 1967.

Israeli forces kill Palestinian, injure another in northern Gaza

Israeli army says soldiers shot two Palestinians who approached the border fence

File photo shows Israeli soldiers stationed in the West Bank

Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian and injured another in the northern Gaza Strip on Friday, local media reported.

According to Maan, Israeli forces fired at Palestinians who were walking near the buffer zone on the border between Gaza and Israel.

A Gaza health ministry spokesman told AFP that Muhammad Hamed al-Musri, 27, died after being shot with a live bullet west of Beit Lahia.

Another youth who was shot and sustained moderate injuries was brought to Kamal Adwan hospital.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told AFP that the two were shot after approaching the border fence with Israel and being ordered to halt.

After one of the figures continued to advance and warning shots were fired, “the force fired toward the lower extremities of a suspect,” the spokeswoman said.

Israel maintains a security buffer zone along the inside of the Gaza border with limited access for farmers, and Israeli forces regularly shoot Palestinians near the fence.

Also Friday, Palestinians gathered across the occupied West Bank for protests condemning an arson attack by suspected Israeli extremists that killed a Palestinian toddler.

Israeli forces dispersed hundreds of protesters in the southern West Bank city of Hebron. Palestinians threw stones and Israeli forces fired rubber-coated bullets and tear gas canisters, Maan reported.

During similar clashes near Ramallah, Israeli forces shot a Palestinian in the chest, critically injuring him, the news agency said. The man is currently undergoing an operation at Palestine Medical Complex.

The West Bank, including East Jerusalem, has been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
