Permalink Israeli Sniper Says He Killed 13 Palestinian Kids In One Day

An Israeli sniper has admitted to killing 13 children in the Gaza Strip in one day, as Tel Aviv continues its aerial and ground attacks in the besieged enclave. Posting on an Instagram account, David Ovadia released a photo of himself holding a sniper rifle. The image with his post, however, was deleted entirely by hackers from an anonymous group. The group has launched hundreds of attacks on Israeli websites over the past two years. The move was reportedly followed by the group’s cyber attacks on Israel's Mossad and Ministry of Military Affairs. The development comes as Tel Aviv claims that its military has been targeting Palestinian fighters from resistance group Hamas and described the growing death toll in the enclave as collateral damage.

According to the network, Pentagon officials have confirmed that the US will honor a request from Israel for several types of ammunition, including 120mm mortar rounds and 40mm ammunition for grenade launchers. The exchange will not be an emergency sale, the unnamed officials said, and is coming from a stockpile of weapons maintained by the US in Israel worth more than $1 billion.

A UN official confirmed the shelling, saying that the missile hit a bathroom and two classrooms in the school, AFP reported. The outer wall of the complex was damaged by shellfire, and in a targeted classroom people were picking body parts off the blood-soaked floor, according to the agency’s correspondent in the area. More than one shell hit the school. The first in the courtyard and the second a section primarily used by female pupils, RT contributor Harry Fear reported from the scene. Currently, over five UN schools are caught in the fighting, he added. The shelling happened after 5:30am local time (02:30 GMT). Almost 15,000 Palestinians were forced to seek shelter in 83 UNRWA schools, according to the UN refugee agency.

Dov Lior, a racist Israeli rabbi from the West Bank settlement Kiryat Arba, recently posted a Halakhic ruling allowing to kill innocent civilians, after being asked about the “war” (it’s a massacre) in Gaza. Here are a few lines from the ruling:

“The Torah of Israel guides us in all walks of life, private and public, on how to behave during war and also how to keep moral standards. The Maharal from Prague (Rabbi Judah Loew), in his book Gur Arye, clearly writes that… in all wars the attacked people are allowed to attack fiercely the people from whom the attackers came from and they do not have to check if he personally belongs to the fighters. Therefore, during war the attacked people are allowed to punish the enemy population in any punishment it finds worthy, such as denying supplies or electricity and also to bomb the whole area according to the discretion of the army minister and not to just simply endanger soldier’s lives but to take crushing deterrence steps to exterminate the enemy. In the case of Gaza, the Minister of Defense will be allowed to instruct even the destruction of Gaza so that the south will no longer suffer and to avoid harm to our people who have been suffering for so long from the surrounding enemies.” Any kind of talk about humanism and consideration are moot when speaking of saving our brothers in the south and in the rest of the country and bringing back quiet to our country.” (Source)

Khalid Amayreh I am not going to discuss Israeli "rationales" behind slaughtering Palestinians. Israel has been slaughtering innocent civilians since time immemorial. Israel and her supporters are also quite skillful in fornicating with words and with the truth. The naked reality is that Israel is murdering civilians knowingly and deliberately, taking advantage of disgracefully shameless reactions by the bulk of the international community to the genocidal atrocities. I am not accusing Jews of shipping Palestinian civilians to Auschwitz, Bergen Belsen, Mauthausen and Dachau. However, it is a clarion fact that Israel is bringing Auschwitz and other concentration camps to Palestinian homes, neighborhoods, hospitals and mosques. Nonetheless, I do know that no matter how many Palestinian children and civilians the Nazis of our time murder in full view of the world, [this] will [not] be sufficient to move the whoring international community to take a meaningful action against Israel. Indeed, the governments and leaders of most influential states in this world, including the leaders of the U.S., UK. France, Germany, Russia and China are too morally bankrupt to be counted on to restrain Israeli monstrosity, let alone take a proactive action against it. In the final analysis, Israel wouldn't have reached this level of nefariousness and ghoulishness had it not been for the active support and backing of the Nazi-like entity by these immoral entities.

Permalink Israel bombs more hospitals across Gaza Strip

Injured patients in the Gaza Strip are in dire need of medical supplies after Israeli warplanes and tanks bombed hospitals across the besieged region. This comes as a hospital in the town of Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip was struck by Israeli artillery shells on Friday. Israel has "fired several shells" at the hospital, "causing heavy damage," media outlets quoted hospital director, Ayman Hemdan, as saying. Hundreds of patients were also evacuated after Israel bombed al-Wafa hospital several times on Thursday evening. Senior Palestinian officials have described the attacks as a "brazen violation of international norms." At least 274 Gazans have lost their lives so far and over 2,000 have been injured, most of them infants, children, women and the elderly. According to Palestinian medical sources around a quarter of the victims are children. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) says some 30,000 Gazans have headed to its shelters across the impoverished territory.

The death toll from ten days of Israeli attacks against the Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip has reached 227, with more than 1,600 others having been injured. In the latest deaths, four members of the same family, including two children, were killed after Israeli warplanes fired missiles in Khan Yunis. Several others were also killed in Rafah. The new deaths follow the killings of four children between the ages of 9 and 11 after an Israeli naval ship fired multiple artillery shells, as they were playing on a beach in Gaza City. The attacks were witnessed by foreign journalists staying in Gaza. Since July 8, the Israeli regime has struck more than 1,800 targets across Gaza, which is home to around 1.8 million Palestinians. According to the UN humanitarian agencies, about a third of the dead are women and children. Some 18,000 people have taken shelter in Gaza schools. The Israeli military is going on with its airstrikes on the besieged Gaza Strip while Palestinians are responding by firing a barrage of rockets into Israel. Meanwhile, the Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem has slammed as illegal and unfounded an interpretation presented by an Israeli army spokesman who has said that the neighboring houses of Palestinians suspected of carrying out military activities were considered to be legitimate targets of attacks. Israel has blockaded Gaza since 2007, denying the Palestinian people there of their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education.

Dr. Mads Gilbert, a Norwegian doctor, joins us from Gaza where he has been treating hundreds of victims wounded in Israel’s ongoing assault, including young children.

Dr. Gilbert says hospitals are operating without electricity, water and proper medical supplies, but adds: "As a medical doctor, my appeal is don’t send bandages, don’t send syringes, don’t send medical teams. The most important medical thing you can do now is to force Israel to stop the bombing and lift the siege of Gaza." Gilbert recently recently submitted a report to the United Nations on the state of the Gaza health sector in 2014.

"Where is the humanity? Where is the decency of the U.S. government allowing Israel this impunity to punish the whole civilian population in Gaza? It’s just outrageous. And the main problem in the Middle East today, it is the Israeli impunity. They go on with these so-called military campaigns every third year. They kill. They maim. They try to sort of oppress the population to surrender. The Palestinians will never surrender. And our duty is to support them and to raise the awareness and to raise the solidarity work in our countries to pressure our politicians to change the attitude towards the real oppressor and the real criminal here. It is the state of Israel."

He added that these weapons cause major damage to the bodies, especially the limbs. Gilbert did not, however, elaborate on the banned weapons allegedly used by Israel. Israeli authorities were not immediately available to comment on the accusation.

He said Israel was deploying weapons that destroy the bodies of their victims, noting that a preliminary survey of victims’ bodies revealed the horrific nature of the weapons being used in Israel’s ongoing onslaught on Gaza. “Israel used internationally-banned weapons in its two previous wars on Gaza,” al-Qodra told Anadolu Agency.“ The same weapons are being used now.” He called on international rights organizations to bring Israel to account for what he called “its continual violations” against the Palestinian people.
