Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki on Sunday accused Israel of committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in Gaza. He also accused Israel of adopting a policy of ‘apartheid’ in Jerusalem (Jerusalem). Al-Maliki said during a high-level meeting of the United Nations Security Council on Sunday that we have no words to describe the fear that our people are going through.
He said that family, children and newborn are being killed in Israeli airstrikes. He said that Israel is killing one family at a time in Gaza. Israel is trying to destroy Palestinians from Jerusalem. Israel is killing our people, committing war crimes and committing crimes against humanity. Al-Maliki appealed to the Security Council, ‘Action should be taken to end the ongoing attacks on our people, our homes and our land.’
Netanyahu’s open threat
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the deadly bombing of the Gaza Strip would continue despite international outrage and efforts to stop the ceasefire. In a television address on Sunday, Netanyahu said that the Israeli Air Strike will continue ‘fully’ and will last ‘a long time’. He said that his country ‘wants to charge a big price’ from the Hamas rulers of Gaza (Gaza).
Three buildings were destroyed and at least 42 people were killed in airstrikes by Israel on Gaza City on Sunday. This was the worst attack since the conflict between Israel and Hamas started a week ago. Gaza’s health ministry said 16 women and 10 children were also among those killed in the attack, while more than 50 people were injured. The ministry said that relief and rescue work is still going on.
Hamas killing its own people
Hamas and PIJ have fired 2968 rockets over Israel in the last one week. Of those rockets, 439 were misfire and crashed in Gaza, injuring about 20 Palestinians. This is 15 percent of their total launch. The Israeli Defense Force gave this information on its official Twitter handle. The IDF said that in this way, one of the 7 rockets fired towards Hamas, he fires at his own people.
