Along the Gaza border, they shoot medics (too), don’t they?

(May 28) – Any healthcare system in the West would collapse if it had to treat as many gunshot wounds in a single day as there were in the Gaza Strip on May 14, say international medical figures. Yet Gaza’s medical system, which for years has been on the brink of collapse as a result of the Israeli blockade and Palestinian internecine conflict, coped amazingly well with the challenge. In Israel, the events of May 14 are already history. In the Strip, their bloody consequences will shape the lives of thousands of families for years to come. Continue reading

70th Anniversary of Al Nakba: ‘Great March of Return’ boldly affirms Palestinians’ right of return to their homeland

The Great March of Return begins on Land Day March 30, 2018.

The Great March of Return, that began on Land Day (March 30) will shortly culminate on May 15, on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Al Nakba (the catastrophe). On May 15, 1948 the Zionist state of Israel was established on the basis of the dispossession and mass expulsion of the Palestinian people.  Today, the Palestinian people face ongoing occupation and increasing encroachment and dispossession by the Zionists. The Great March of Return is a bold affirmation of the Palestinian people’s right to resist and right of return to their homeland, as enshrined in international law. Continue reading

Massive marches to Israeli border affirms Palestinians’ Right of Return

42nd Anniversary of Palestinian Land Day

Mass Land Day demonstration in Gaza, near the border with the Zionist State of Israel, March 30, 2018, as the March of Return begins.

This year is the 42nd anniversary of Palestinian Land Day. On March 30, 1976, six Palestinians from Arab villages inside the Green Line were shot and killed by Israeli forces while protesting the confiscation of 5,500 acres of land from the Galilee in northern Israel to build Jewish communities. About 100 others were wounded and hundreds were arrested during the protest on March 30 of that year. Since then, Land Day has been commemorated by Palestinians inside Israel as well as in the West Bank, Gaza and Jerusalem and around the world. In Arabic, Yawm al-‘Ard is one of the most widely-observed Palestinian national anniversaries. It signifies the unity of the land on all of historical Palestine, and the indivisibility of Palestinians wherever they live. Continue reading
