Israeli soldiers open fire along the Gaza-Israel border on Palestinian demonstrators protesting the Tel Aviv-enforced no-go zone, injuring one.
Ziad as-Sarafandi, coordinator of the Popular Committee Against the Buffer Zone in Rafah where Thursday’s demonstration took place, said Israeli troops used live ammunition at the protesters, injuring a young Palestinian from Rafah.
The protests are being conducted every day for the past week. Gaza residents are demanding access to their private and agricultural lands which are completely sealed off and declared a “combat zone” by the Israeli forces.
Individuals entering the area are “considered a threat to the citizens of Israel,” an Israeli military spokesman claimed.
On Wednesday, a similar shooting at protesters east of Gaza City injured a 19-year-old Palestinian in the leg. The young man later died in hospital.
Two days earlier four people were injured, including a female solidarity activist from Malta who was filming the protests.
As-Sarafandi demanded that Israel put an end to the enforcement of the no-go zone, which has taken away at least 20 percent of the agricultural land in Gaza.
He further said that if the Israelis want to enforce a buffer zone, they could do so on their side of the border. Source
The ones doing the killing and maiming are the Israelis.
Buffer zone/Combat zone what hogwash. The land as par usual does not belong to Israel. If anyone should stay off the land it is Israel.
Individuals entering the area are “considered a threat to the citizens of Israel,” an Israeli military spokesman claimed. More hogwash. Israel is the one killing people. They are the real threat.
Keeping the farmers off their land is just wrong on every level.
How are they suppose to make a living, if they can’t farm their own land?
Then again they won’t let the fishemen fish in their own waters either.
Again Israel is breaking the law.
They shoot an kill protesters a lot and call it self defense what BS.
Israel hints at one-state solution
April 30 2010
Israeli Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin has expressed reluctance to share occupied territories with Palestinians.
He said he doubted Tel Aviv would ever sign a peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority, adding that he did not believe acting Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas could deliver any “good.”
Tel Aviv would rather accept Palestinians into Israel than dividing the occupied lands in a future two-state solution, Rivlin said during a Thursday meeting with Greece’s ambassador to Israel, Kyriakos Loukakis, when asked about a possible peace agreement with the Palestinians.
Meanwhile he admitted that that many Arabs have been encountering racism and arrogance from Israelis. Source
Israel does not want Peace. If there was a one state solution who do you think would be in charge of the one state and who would do all the suffering? Boy one can see the land grabs already, multiplying ten fold.
I can envision the horror already. The bigotry, the hate, the denial of rights. Palestinians would also be forced to join Israel Military to kill their own people or fight Israels wars against their neighbouring countries….. Who better to put on the front lines to die then the Palestinians. What a nice tidy, so called legal way, to get even more of them killed.
They would not be treated any better then they are now. Israel could also go right ahead and steal the natural Gas off the shores of Gaza as well. It too would be legal as well. The Palestinians would not benefit from it however.
Oh and that is just the tip of the iceburg.
Israel goal from day one, is it to reign over all of Palestine and then move on to their neighbours and steal their land as well.
