A top UN official reports that Israeli soldiers have shot 7,000 demonstrators in Gaza over the past year. Over 120 people have had arms or legs amputated, including 20 children. Now 1,700 more people with shattered limbs may need to have amputations if Gaza doesn’t receive emergency help. Use the form below to contact your Congress members!
While US news reports and the Israel lobby emphasize the rockets fired by Palestinian resistance groups, the fact is that Israeli violence began BEFORE rockets were fired from Gaza, and Israeli forces have killed massively more civilians.
In the past year, Israeli forces killed 193 Palestinians in Gaza, and Gazan resistance fighters killed 6 Israelis.
In the recent surge in violence, Israeli soldiers began the killing that triggered the 3-day escalation. Israeli airstrikes & snipers killed 27 Palestinians, including infants, while resistance fighters killed 4 Israelis. (Read the details here.)
Israel has perpetrated a strangling, illegal 12-year-blockade on Gaza, preventing numerous medical supplies, building materials, and other commodities from reaching Gaza’s almost 2 million men, women, and children. This one of the longest blockades in modern history and has caused an unconscionable humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
The Red Cross has called for the blockade to be ended, saying it violates the Geneva Conventions.
Please email and phone your Congressional representatives NOW.
