The National Society For Democracy and Law condemns the continued military escalation of the Israeli occupation in the Gaza Strip

The Society emphasizes that it is considering gravely of the steady increase in the number of martyrs and wounded in various places of the Gaza Strip, due to ongoing strikes by aircraft on the sector, and the deliberate bombing of civilian targets, to inflict the greatest possible number of dead and wounded.

According to the latest official statistics, the number of martyrs has risen to seven martyrs, including three children, in less than 24 hours, while the number of wounded exceeded 54 wounded, including at least 12 children and five women.

This Society expresses concern over the escalation of such processes, which cause harm to innocent civilians, and regards it as flagrant violations of international law and humanitarian law, the Fourth Geneva Convention, which provides for the protection of civilians and their property during the war.

The bombing occupation forces shelled Within a few hours the number of civilian targets, including the home consolation, and a football stadium, and poultry farm and a house adjacent to the farm, owned by the family Hashash in the city of Rafah, in addition to the bombing of stores belonging to the electricity distribution company in Gaza City.

Society condemns the bombing which targeted populated areas resulted in a growing number of martyrs and wounded, viewing it as flagrant violations of international law, and a flagrant violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention, and treaties designed to protect civilians and civilian wartime.

The National Society For Democracy and Law demands:

– The international community to intervene to protect Palestinian civilians, and the prosecution of Israeli officials involved in such crimes, which are classified according to the law as crimes outside the scope of the law, and rise to the indiscriminate killings and extrajudicial killings.

– Society invites the High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949 to take deterrent measures to stop all war crimes of the occupation forces
