Al Mezan calls on world to save Gaza’s children from Israeli aggression 24Mar11 March 25, 2011

The Palestinian Information Centre -  24 March 2011


Al Mezan Center for Human Rights in Gaza has said the international community’s non-interest in bringing Israel to justice has placed the Gaza Strip on the brink of disaster.

”The international community must refrain from double standards. As armies deploy to enforce a no-fly zone [in Libya], are they unable to stop the killing of children in the Gaza Strip?” Al Mezan director Esam Younis said to the Palestinian information center.

Israel sent Tuesday evening a reconnaissance drone to fire missiles at the Al-Shajaa’iyya community east of Gaza city. The blasts killed three children, an elderly man and injured dozens.

A few hours later, a separate airstrike killed four resistance fighters in the Al-Zaytoun district.

”They have killed civilians in cold blood,” Younis said.

He maintained that it is crucial that the world community fulfils its ”legal and moral obligations towards residents of the Palestinian territories”, and said he believes certain countries have been providing impunity to Israel.
