[ 30/04/2013 - 06:42 PM ]
A human rights center lashed out at the persistent Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people the latest of which being the murder of a man riding a motorbike in Gaza on Tuesday.
The Mizan center for human rights warned that a large-scale Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip was in the offing.
The center charged in a statement that the Israeli violations of the calm agreement did not cease ever since the agreement was concluded in November last year.
It pointed to the Israeli occupation forces daily incursions, bulldozing land, shooting at citizens in borders areas, chasing and harassing fishermen, and maintaining the blockade on the coastal enclave.
Mizan asked the world community to immediately act to bridle the Israeli aggression and to assume its legal and ethical duties represented in protecting Palestinian civilians and oblige Israel to abide by the international humanitarian law.

They also demanded the interim leadership framework of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) to hold a meeting to discuss ways of implementing the reconciliation agreement and to determine the date of the elections.
National and Islamic Forces have also discussed during their meeting the recent Israeli escalations against the Palestinian people in general and the Gaza Strip in particular, and held the occupation responsibility for all the repercussions arising there from.
The factions urged the international community to intervene to stop the escalation, and called on Egypt to continue its role in obliging the occupation to abide by the truce agreement.
Barhoum: Israeli escalation serious, unjustified
[ 30/04/2013 - 01:51 PM ]
Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, has charged that the Israeli military escalation against the Gaza Strip was “serious and unjustified”.
He told the PIC on Tuesday that targeting a Palestinian citizen in central Gaza earlier today was meant to create tension with Gaza in a bid to cover up for the unprecedented escalation in Judaization efforts in occupied Jerusalem.
Barhoum held the Israeli occupation government fully responsible for consequences of that escalation.
For his part, Taher Al-Nunu, the Gaza government’s spokesman, denounced the aerial attack that killed a Palestinian man and wounded two others.
He warned Israel, in a statement to Quds Press, of the repercussions of such a serious escalation, describing it as the most serious violation since the end of the war on Gaza last November.
Nunu called on Cairo to assume its responsibility and force Israel to abide by the calm agreement signed with the Palestinian resistance under Egyptian auspices.
