IOF Attacks Violate International Law: 61 Killed and Injured in Three Days of Attacks in Gaza
Al Mezan Condemns the Escalation and Calls for Protection of Civilians in Gaza
The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) continued escalated its attacks on the Gaza Strip. Between the evening of Thursday 7 April 2011 and evening of Saturday 9 April 2011, the IOF killed 19 Palestinians, including two children, two women and two elderly persons. It also injured 44 persons, including 13 children, one woman, and two paramedics.
This escalation represents a continuation of a volatile situation in Gaza since the start of 2011. According to Al Mezan’s documentation, 48 Palestinians (including 7 children) have been killed by IOF since the start of 2011. Another 153 people were injured; including at least 40 children and two paramedics.
According to the documentation of Al Mezan Centre for Human Rights (Al Mezan), IOF attacks violated basic principles of international law by targeting and killing civilian persons and civilian objects, particularly houses. The IOF escalation comes as Israel continues to impose an illegal blockade on the Gaza Strip. The situation deteriorated since the IOF extra-judicially assassinated three persons in Gaza on 2 April 2011; however, attacks were more concentrated starting on 7 April.
