Israeli Crimes Against Humanity In Palestine

Israeli Crimes Against Humanity In Palestine Over Past Three Months


By Genevieve Cora Fraser

According to the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights, crimes committed by Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) since 25 June 2006 include:

315 Palestinians, mostly civilians, including 62 children and 14 women, have been killed.

At least 1072 Palestinian civilians, including 315 children and 45 women, have been wounded by IOF gunfire.

At least 286 air-to-surface missiles and hundreds of artillery shells have been fired at the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of National economy, the office of the Palestinian Prime Minister and a number of educational institutions have been destroyed as well as the Palestinian government compound in Nablus.

The electricity generation plant, providing 45% of the electricity of the Gaza Strip, was destroyed, and electricity networks and transmitters have been repeatedly attacked. Six bridges linking Gaza City with the central Gaza Strip and a number of roads have been destroyed. Hundreds of acres of agricultural land and dozens of houses have been destroyed.

Hundreds of Palestinian civilians, including 9 ministers and 31 members of the Palestinian Legislative Council, including the Speaker, Deputy Speaker and Secretary, have been arrested. Many families have been forced to evacuate their houses which have been attacked.

Israel has imposed a strict siege on Palestine, isolated the Gaza Strip from the outside world, and continues to construct the Apartheid Wall in the West Bank. In addition, Palestinian farmers have been denied access to their agricultural lands.

These Crimes against Humanity represent USA tax dollars at work.
