Israeli drones fired a missile targeting a group of Palestinians near the return camp of the al-Breij refugee camp in the central besieged Gaza Strip, on Wednesday afternoon.

Palestinian security sources reported injuries during the airstrike, pointing out that the missile targeted five people.

Meanwhile, Israeli naval forces opened fire at Palestinian fishermen off the coast of the northern Gaza Strip.

Earlier this week, an Israeli airstrike targeted and killed three Palestinian minors northeast of Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip; Israeli forces had then claimed that the airstrike targeted a group of Palestinians who were planting a suspicious object near the border.

According to a report by the Geneva-based Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor (Euro-Med), as Gaza protests exceeded 200 days “one Palestinian is killed every single day” by Israeli forces, noting that “in every 100 Gazans, one injury was recorded.”

Euro-Med described the continued use of excessive force by Israeli forces against Palestinian protesters at the Israel-Gaza fence as “deeply shocking,” adding that in the 200 days of protests, Gaza lost 205 residents.

The World Health Organization (WHO) issued a special situation report, which showed that 14 Palestinians, including four children, were killed and 1,434 were injured by the Israeli forces in the past two weeks in Gaza.

Israel evades demands to end the Gaza protests and reach a truce.

Despite Palestinian attempts to calm the Great March of Return, Israeli occupation snipers stationed along the eastern fence of the besieged Gaza Strip escalated their crackdown on the protesters this weekend. During the 31st Friday of the Great March, Israel killed six Palestinians and wounded more than 230 others, including around 30 children and four paramedics.

Following this violent crackdown, Israeli fighter jets began the widest wave of airstrikes since August. Though there were no reports of human casualties, the heavy attacks caused severe damage to the Indonesian Hospital in the south of the Gaza Strip. Four major security service headquarters across the coastal enclave were also damaged, as well as several military bases belonging to the Palestinian resistance movement.

These killings and this wave of Israeli attacks came amidst the ongoing Egyptian discussions with the Palestinian resistance factions in Gaza, the Palestinian Authority (PA), Fatah officials in the occupied West Bank and Israeli officials. The Egyptian efforts – backed by the UN – should have achieved some progress, a senior Hamas leader in Gaza told MEMO.

An Islamic Jihad leader who attended the meetings with the Egyptians also confirmed that the ongoing truce efforts could be fruitful this time. Speaking to local newspaper Al-Ayyam, he said that the Israelis told the Egyptians they would lessen the 12-year-old siege imposed on Gaza, promising to offer more concessions in the future on the condition that the Great March of Return was reduced. The Palestinian factions refused and stressed that they first wanted to see the Israeli offer materialise on the ground.

However, the Islamic Jihad leader also said that the Palestinian factions worked with the High Committee for the Return and Lifting the Siege Protests in order to “reduce the human losses during the protests”. This means that, on the ground, the Palestinian resistance factions have responded to the Israeli demand and started to calm the protests. The Israeli occupation, however, did not uphold its end of the bargain. In order to justify its violation, the Israeli occupation army claimed that its attacks were meant to deter Syrian and Iranian interference in Gaza.

The Israeli army claimed that its airstrikes came in response to Palestinian rocket attacks from Gaza. Meanwhile, Israeli newspaper Haaretz cited an Israeli army spokesperson blaming Iran and Syria for the attacks, claiming they “were led by the Islamic Jihad with clear guidance from Iran and the Revolutionary Guards’ Quds force in Syria […] The entire incident was under Iran’s guidance through the Quds force that led the attacks”.

Where is Israel’s evidence that the rockets launched from Gaza were directed by Syria and Iran? Of course, it has no evidence! Yet if we argue that the main reason for firing primitive rockets from Gaza was continued Israeli aggression against the Palestinians and its violation of their rights, we will be able to provide an unlimited amount of evidence. The latest of this evidence is Israel’s use of lethal force against peaceful protesters in Gaza, which killed six Palestinians, as well as attacking protesters in the occupied West Bank the same day.


#GreatMarchOfReturn

After a dreadful night Islamic Jihad, which responded to the Israeli airstrikes on Gaza, said that the Palestinian factions had accepted Egyptian mediation and reached a new ceasefire with the Israeli occupation. It said this was in order to give the Egyptian efforts chance to achieve their goals, including lifting the Israeli siege imposed on Gaza and reaching a long-term truce with the Palestinian resistance. The real question now is whether the Israeli occupation will commit to this ceasefire and carry out the promises it pledged?

TAKE ACTION: This is an urgent and time-sensitive situation. Please sign and share widely!

Demand the Immediate Release of Prominent Palestinian Author Susan Abulhawa from Israeli Detention!

This is an urgent and time-sensitive situation. Please sign and share widely among your networks to ensure Susan's immediate and unconditional release from Israeli detention!

Susan Abulhawa, the Palestinian novelist, has been denied entry at Tel Aviv Airport on her way to the Kalimat Palestinian Literature Festival sponsored in part by the British Council. Despite the help of a lawyer from the British Council, the US Embassy and the festival organizers who have been on hand to assist, she was been detained by border forces upon her arrival.


She is one of the most commercially successful Arab authors of all time. Abulhawa’s 2010 debut novel Mornings in Jenin, a multigenerational family epic spanning five countries and more than sixty years, looks unflinchingly at the Palestinian question – and became an international bestseller translated into twenty-eight languages. Susan was also a juror among a panel of internationally recognized human rights activists at the recent International People's Tribunal on US Colonial Crimes in Puerto Rico.

At this point, Susan is in detention awaiting a judicial decision regarding her appeal to allow her entry. Festival organizers and the British Council have stated that her participation is a cornerstone of the festival and very much needed.

We demand the immediate release of Susan Abulhawa and a guarantee that she will be able to travel and participate in the Kalimat Palestinian Literature Festival without any further incident. As a prominent Palestinian author, she deserves to be allowed to attend the Kalimat Palestinian Literature Festival in her birthright county.


Below is the contact info for the US Embassy of Israel to ask that she be allowed entry to participate. (https://www.science.co.il/Embassy.php)



In addition to signing this petition, please contact these US officials to demand they assist in assuring Abulhawa's speedy release and permission to travel to the festival.
