Gaza, 24 January 2023 (TDI): Reports have been incessantly coming out of Gaza about an increased onslaught in the past few months on the hapless Palestinians. According to the United Nations (UN), 2022 has been the deadliest year for the Palestinians.
Nobody and no place is safe from Israeli atrocities. Be it houses, farms, roads, camps, schools, or even hospitals. Children are being specifically targeted by the forces of Israel.
Israeli military vehicles invaded Palestinian agricultural lands in Gaza. These also include bulldozers bulldozing the land. They also fired gas bombs. In addition, Fishermen are also not safe from Israeli assaults.
Palestine officials have reported that in the past few months, many Palestinians including children have been targeted by the Israeli military during raids in the Jenin refugee camp as well as other areas in the occupied West Bank.
It is important to note that Israel regularly conducts raids in the West Bank, ever since occupying it illegally in 1967. Whereas this year it has increased the frequency in an effort to crush the growing resistance in Palestine, particularly in Jenin and Nablus.
The human rights violation by the country has become increasingly worrisome for the world and human rights organizations. The persecution of the Palestinians at the hands of Israel has become more rampant.
Following the death of a 78-year-old Palestinian American man early last year as a result of an arrest by Israeli soldiers, its military announced that it was temporarily withdrawing Netzah Yehuda Battalion from the occupied West Bank.
Purportedly, by the end of the year, Netzah Yehuda (Judea Forever) Battalion will be moved to the occupied Golan Heights.
Nevertheless, the announcement made no reference to Omar Assad; the Palestinian American, who died after being detained, bound and blindfolded by Israeli soldiers.
