Israeli Occupation Forces Escalate War Crimes in the Gaza Strip:

11 Palestinians Killed and 33 Injured in 9 Hours

The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) committed several war crimes in the Gaza Strip on Thursday 27th September, which left 11 Palestinians dead, including a child, and injured 33 others, five of them seriously. Some of the injured suffered amputation of limbs. Five of the victims were killed in an extra-judicial execution in Gaza City. The remaining 6 victims fell in Beit Hanoun by aerial and land bombardment during an incursion into the town.

These crimes were perpetrated several hours after the announcement by the Israeli Defense Minister, Ehud Barak, that his forces are close to carrying out a wide scale military operation in the Strip. Thus, this indicates that these atrocities were a prelude to more war crimes against Gazas civilians.

The declaration of the Gaza Strip as a hostile entity forewarns of a new campaign of collective punishment against the civilian population in violation of article 33 of the Geneva Convention IV.

TAKE ACTION

Write to Prime Minister Brown and the FCO demanding:

1. Britain call on Israel to stop its war crimes in Gaza;
2. British condemnation of Israels actions in Gaza;
3. Aide be sent to the beleaguered Palestinians of Gaza; and
4. Israel opens the borders of Gaza and allows passage of goods and people.
