Reality in Occupied Palestine
Palestinians face ruthless daily persecution.
by Stephen Lendman
Gaza's attacked regularly. Dozens of West Bank incursions occur weekly. Police state harshness and arrests follow.
In the week ending April 5, one Palestinian was killed and dozens injured, including 18 children. They were nonviolently commemorating Land Day.
Many others, including an international human rights defender, were wounded during a peaceful anti-Separation Wall demonstration. Dozens more suffered from tear gas inhalation.
From March 29 through April 5, Israeli soldiers conducted 77 West Bank community incursions - on average, 11 per day. Gazans experienced three others. Affected Palestinians faced police state harshness. Twenty-eight arrests were made, including five children and a journalist doing his job.
Daily reality in Occupied Palestine includes much more. Harshness is a way of life. One crisis follows another. Gaza remains suffocating under siege. Everything's in short supply or not available, including medical necessities, fuel and electricity.
