Four unspeakable Israeli massacres hit the Gaza Strip Thursday evening and Friday morning as at least 28 civilians, all same members of different Palestinian families, were killed in a barrage of Israeli strikes on the Strip.
The first massacre rocked al-Farra family in Khan Younis after a drove of Israeli fighter jets shelled their home, taking away the lives of eight family members and leaving dozens severely injured.
Four-year-old child Lujein Basem al-Farra and Abdul Rahman al-Farra, eight, along with three other children, were murdered in the attack.
By-standers at the scene said heavy fire was unleashed by the Israeli Fighting Falcons moments after having sent evacuation threats to al-Farra family.
In Bani Suhila, east of Khan Younis, the Israeli warplanes blasted two more civilian homes, murdering six Palestinians and leaving others severely wounded.
Seven-year-old girl Meiyssoun Raafat al-Brim was killed on the spot in the Israeli raid.
At least 470 civilians were killed in a wave of Israeli genocides in Khan Younis over the past 25 days.
In an earlier incident Thursday, an Israeli strike on al-Bayoumi’s family home in the Nusairat refugee camp in Gaza killed 14 civilians and injured more than 20 others.
Local sources said the casualties’ bodies, including 3 children, were recovered from under the ruins torn into shreds.
The injured civilians were rushed to al-Aqsa Martyrs hospital in Deir al-Balah for urgent treatment after they sustained severe injuries in the strike.
Moments before the massacre, the Gaza Health Ministry documented the rise of Israeli genocides against Gaza civilian families to 70 over the past 25 days.
570 citizens, belonging to different civilian families, were mass-murdered in the ongoing Israeli military offensive while some 958 others sustained injuries, a statement by the Health Ministry reported.
Death toll of Gaza civilians has hit 1437 so far, including hundreds of women and innocent children.
Hamas: Our steadfast people will achieve victory
[ 01/08/2014 - 11:49 AM ]
“You are re-writing history through the very ink of perseverance, self-abnegation and support you’ve been providing the resistance with,” Hamas said as it acclaimed the Palestinians’ steadfastness and their eagerness to stand firm in their historic battle against the Israeli occupation.
“Every single drop of blood you’ve shed on behalf of Gaza is a harbinger of an imminent victory; every single tear you’ve dropped for the death of a dear person foreshadows the downfall of darkness and the launch of a new dawn,” Hamas statement declared.
“Our People in Gaza have been an epitome of resistance, sacrifice, and patience in the face of the Israeli offensive against our children, women, and elderly people. Despite the agony inculcated in us by all such agonies, our offspring have been standing tall, so tall to protect their sacred soil and reclaim not only their honor but also that of an entire nation.”
“Gazans have been enduring years of tough blockade, heavy shelling and ruthless destruction. Yet, they have never thrown in the towel. Our people has been standing its ground like an unbreakable mountain, never conceding defeat, never yielding in, forever craving for victory,” Hamas added.
“We are standing here today to express our honor and pride of what you’ve done to face up to the ongoing Israeli terrorism. The occupation jets, tanks, and watchtowers have all failed to dash your hopes. You’ve made proof of an unparalleled vigor despite the wounds and pains you’ve had to endure.”
Hamas hailed Gaza children, who have been snatching smiles from beneath the ruins that fell upon them, seeking to recover their toys from within the very mounds of stones into which their own and only homes have turned.
“Gaza children have been waving victory flags to remind all of Gaza’s mosques, families, homes, souls, martyrs, and even trees that victory is coming out soon,” Hamas concluded.
