15 Palestinians Killed in Israeli Terrorist Attacks on Gaza Strip, in Anniversary of the Dair Yassin Massacre
April 9, 2011
The Israeli occupation terrorist government has continued its attacks on the besieged Palestinian territory of Gaza Strip, killing fifteen people, most of whom are civilians, and injuring scores of civilians.
The new Israeli war crimes coincide with the anniversary of the Dair Yassin massacre in Jerusalem, in 1948, which confirms that the current Israeli war criminals are repeating the crimes of their fathers and grandfathers against the Palestinian people.
The Israeli extremists have been escalating their attacks on the Palestinian people taking advantage of the world's attention on the revolutions spreading in various Arab states.
World governments and peace activists should condemn the Israeli war criminals and tell them that one day they will be tried in the International Court of Justice for their crimes against humanity.
Palestinian interior ministry declares state of emergency in Gaza
[ 09/04/2011 - 02:13 PM ]
The Palestinian ministry of interior declared on Saturday a state of emergency throughout the Gaza Strip as a result of the ongoing Israeli military attacks that escalated during the last two days.
Spokesman for the ministry Ihab Al-Ghussain said that Israel's bombing of the interior ministry's buildings would not discourage its cadres from fulfilling their national duties and protecting the internal front.
The spokesman affirmed that the interior ministry and all its security apparatuses are working round the clock after declaring a state of emergency.
"The Palestinian police maintain the public security and protect citizens and their property, while the civil defense and medical services are working round the clock throughout the Strip to save civilians from the Zionist occupation's attacks," the spokesman said.
"Yesterday, the factions respected the Palestinian consensus on the need to stop firing retaliatory rockets, but the Zionist occupation forces foiled this agreement by continuing its attacks and killing civilians, women, children and elderly people in addition to its persistence in committing war crimes by targeting medical crews and ambulances, and firing white phosphorus shells which are internationally prohibited," he underlined.
