    latest of many hundreds of martyrs mourned by this community May his soul rest in peace Izzadeen Walid Beny Gharrah is the twelfth Palestinian to be killed by Israeli occupation forces in the West Bank East Jerusalem and Gaza since the start of 2015 according to UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs with over 900 injured not including injuries resulting from settler violence One Israeli has been killed in the same time period An investigation by Palestinian Center for Human Rights confirms the accounts that The Freedom Theatre heard a few hours after Izzadeen s death that he had been unarmed and on his way home when he was killed by a sniper While Israeli forces claimed Izzadeen had been carrying a bomb that had exploded when he was shot medical personnel and eye witnesses refuted this He was hit with one bullet that killed him immediately and doctors found no shrapnel of an explosive device on his body or clothes PCHR strongly condemns this crime which is part of Israel s policy of using excessive force against Palestinian civilians in disregard for their lives Furthermore PCHR calls upon the international community to take immediate and effective actions to stop the israeli crimes and reiterates its call for the High Contracting Parties to the 1949 Fourth Geneva Convention to fulfill their obligations under Article 1 i e to respect and to ensure respect for the Convention in all circumstances and their obligation under Article 146 to prosecute persons alleged to commit grave breaches of the Fourth Geneva Convention These grave breaches constitute war crimes under Article 147 of the same Convention and Protocol I Additional to the Geneva Conventions Read more Search and arrest raids are regular practice by Israeli forces who have conducted a weekly average of

  • ‘Juliano’ attacked on its way to break the siege on Gaza | The Freedom Theatre
    from reaching Gaza threatening the participants in a similar fashion as during earlier attempts to break the illegal siege on Gaza In 2010 Israeli troops attacked a similar flotilla in international waters killing ten of the activists onboard and detaining many others Juliano Mer Khamis oftentimes declared that he was 100 Jewish and 100 Palestinian He spoke of the necessity of a bi national state where true democracy and justice may rule Juliano s work and vision inspired many people worldwide to act for justice in Palestine The Freedom Flotilla does the same The sabotage of a boat named after a freedom fighter that believed in art as the most righteous form of resistance proves to what length Israel is willing to go to silence criticism and activism against the occupation and apartheid system The boat Juliano is part of an international Freedom Flotilla Coalition calling for an end to the inhuman siege on Gaza which violates the most basic human rights of the Palestinian people The Flotilla comes less than a year after Israel s brutal war against the Gaza strip in which more than 2 200 Palestinians were killed The Freedom Theatre welcomes the Freedom Flotilla initiative just like we welcome any other form of legitimate resistance against the Israeli oppression No single person organisation or movement can overcome the Israeli occupation and apartheid but by considering us all part of a joint movement supporting and complementing each other we can and will succeed in bringing justice and peace to Palestine In just a few days the Freedom Flotilla will reach international waters outside the coast of Gaza carrying more than 50 people from over 20 countries The boats are also carrying urgently needed supplies and most importantly a message of solidarity to the besieged population of Gaza
