Headlines Reveal Life in Occupied Palestine


Daily state terror against Palestinians.

by Stephen Lendman

They also reflect rogue Israeli leadership threatening humanity. More on that below.

Gaza remains isolated and besieged. Its health minister said the lives of 404 kidney failure patients are threatened. Enough dialysis "Bloodline" supplies aren't available.

Health Ministry spokesperson Ashraf Al-Qudra said without them, dialysis machines stop. Patients need treatment two - three times weekly. Without it they'll die.

Supplies are nearly exhausted. Around 150 patients are treated daily.

"When supplies run out, clinics will shut down and dozens of patients will face serious deterioration in their health conditions," said Al-Qudra. "Their lives will be the tax they pay for this 6-year long Israeli siege imposed on Gaza."

He appealed to the ICRC and WHO, as well as local and other international aid and humanitarian organizations for help. Time is running out.

Israel's prison gulag remains a moral outrage. Deal or no deal, appalling abuses continue daily.

In April, Defence for Children International/Palestine Section (DCI-P) said children imprisoned increased 63% since December.

An urgent appeal for Beit Ummar, West Bank youths was issued. Children young as nine are affected.

Nine-year old Mahmoud A. was arrested, detained, traumatized, then released. Twelve year old Jameel Z. was arrested, detained, abused, and bogusly accused of throwing stones. 

Middle-of-the night apprehensions are common. Children are traumatized. Parents are tormented. Anything can happen and often does. Many children face prison, fines or both.

Beit Ummar lies halfway between Bethlehem and Hebron. It's about three kilometers south of Gush Etzion and adjacent Karmi Zur settlements. Each Friday, demonstrations protest against being denied access to their farms.
