MP Eissa Qaraqea Says Israeli Troops Carried Out Field Executions Against Palestinian Captives in Gaza

[ 05/08/2014 - 12:11 PM ]


Palestinian lawmaker Eissa Qaraqi' said the Israeli occupation forces kidnapped about 300 Palestinians from Gaza and carried out mass executions against others during its military operation.

In a press release on Monday, Qaraqi' affirmed that the detainees could have been held in a camp outside Gaza borders.

The lawmaker also said that the Israeli army, during its invasion of populated areas, carried out field executions against citizens after they were taken prisoners and others as they were raising their hands to show they were unarmed.

He called on the Red Cross to immediately move to uncover the fate of those prisoners and their incarceration conditions.

For its part, the Palestinian prisoner society appealed to the Red Cross and all concerned parties to necessarily intervene to obtain information about the Palestinian citizens who were captured during Israel's military operation in Gaza.

Director of the society Qaddoura Faris said there is still no accurate information about the number of these Palestinian detainees and their whereabouts, adding that there are growing fears that some of them might have been executed by Israeli soldiers.

He stressed the need to pressure Israel to reveal the fate of those prisoners as soon as possible.
