33 Palestinians Killed, Including 6 Children, 150 Injured, in 5 Days of Israeli Air Strikes on Gaza

May 9-14, 2023 

Editor's Note:

" ٰ  ٰ "  ( 5: 32).

"Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul, unless for a soul, or for corruption in the land, it is as if he had killed humankind entirely" (The Holy Quran, Al-Ma-ida, 5: 32).

While brutal force has been used to create Zionist Israel and sustain it thus far, Zionist claims to Palestine are false. Actually, from the five thousand years of known written history, there has been a continuous Palestinian-Canaanite presence in the Holy Land. Despite the Zionist false claims, the ancient Israelites ruled part of the land for only 85 years (during the reign of David, Solomon, and Solomon's son).

 After that, the Egyptians conquered Palestine-Canaan in 925 BC, followed by Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, and Romans, before the Arab Muslim rule, starting from 636 AD.

By the Time Jesus started his mission, the three population groups of Canaanites, Palestinians, and Israelites were melted together in religion and language. Most of them became Christians when Constantine converted in 313 AD. Then, most of them became Muslims in the 7th and 8th centuries AD.

So, Palestinian Muslims, Christians, and Jews are the ones who have the right to claim descent from ancient Israelites, Palestinians, and Canaanites, not Zionists from other continents.

The following news stories are just examples, not a systematic record, of the Israeli occupation government abuse, mistreatment, and violations of Palestinian human rights, on daily basis.

On Wednesday, Israeli occupation soldiers invaded the Jabal Al-Hardash area in Tarqoumia town, west of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, uprooted 600 olive trees, and destroyed water tanks, to expand two illegal colonies built on stolen Palestinian lands.

Mahmoud Fatafta, one of the landowners, said the lands are privately owned by members of the Fatafta and Thabayna families and added that the attack is not the first, especially since the army uprooted and bulldozed lands in the area several times over the past few years.

The soldiers also destroyed twenty water tanks, used by the farmers, and demolished agricultural sheds.

Mahmoud stated that the attacks are part of the Israeli plans to expand the illegal Edora and Telem colonies built on stolen Palestinian lands.

He called on various local, regional, and international human rights and legal groups to intervene and end the seriously escalating Israeli violations of International Law and the Fourth Geneva Convention.

In related news, the army uprooted dozens of olive saplings in an orchard owned by a Palestinian from the local Assaf family and surveyed Palestinian lands in Wadi Fukin village, west of Bethlehem.

Over the past four years, the army uprooted dozens of olive saplings and trees in the area, and bulldozed farmlands as part of ongoing illegal colonialist activities.

JERUSALEM, Wednesday, May 10, 2023 (WAFA)

Israeli occupation regime bulldozers demolished two Palestinian-owned apartments in the town of Jabal al-Mukabber, in the occupied city of Jerusalem, under the pretext that they were built without a permit.

According to the sources, the two apartments were 220 square meters each, owned by brothers Feras and Ali Shuqeirat, and inhabited by 10 people, mostly children.

Feras said that he had received a demolition notice from the Israeli authorities last February and that all the attempts to prevent the demolition of his apartment and his brother Alis apartment were unsuccessful.

He pointed out that the occupation municipality court issued a decision about two months ago to freeze the demolition decision until next September, but he and his brother were informed by the lawyer last week that the municipality had submitted a request to the court to cancel the freezing decision, and the court approved the demolition.

He called on all merchants to abide by the set prices of goods and supplies and added that the Consumer Protection Department monitors the markets.
