While brutal force has been used to create Zionist Israel and sustain it thus far, Zionist claims to Palestine are false. Actually, from the five thousand years of known written human history, there has been a continuous Palestinian-Canaanite presence in the Holy Land. Despite the Zionist false claims, the ancient Israelites ruled part of the land for only 85 years (during the reign of Prophets David and Solomon , peace be upon them, and Solomon's son).

 After that, the Egyptians conquered Palestine-Canaan in 925 BC, followed by Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, and Romans, before the Arab Muslim rule, starting from 636 AD.

By the Time Jesus, peace be upon him, started his mission, the three population groups of Canaanites, Palestinians, and Israelites were melted together in religion and language. Most of them became Christians when Constantine converted in 313 AD. Then, most of them became Muslims in the 7th and 8th centuries AD.

So, Palestinian Muslims, Christians, and Jews are the ones who have the right to claim descent from ancient Israelites, Palestinians, and Canaanites, not Zionists from other continents.

No matter what the Zionists and their supporters do, they cannot change the will of God, Who promised the Holy Land to Abraham and his descendants, basically the Palestinian Muslims and Christians.

No matter how much persecution and aggression the Zionists and their supporters inflict upon the Palestinian people, they will never be able to force them out of the Holy Land, which Allah, praise to Him, promised for them, and kept His promise ever since.

The following news stories are just examples, not a systematic record, of the Israeli occupation government abuse, mistreatment, and violations of Palestinian human rights, on daily basis.

Editorial Notes about terms & names of people and places:

1. Names of people and places have been standardized to match standard Arabic grammatical rules.

2. Underlined letters and letters preceded by an apostrophe are references to Arabic letter sounds, which does not exist in the English alphabet.

3. The English letter i is equivalent to the Arabic short vowel known as kasra, as in Ibraheem and Qasim as well as in the English words sit and bit. So, it is incorrect to use it as a long vowel for such Arabic names as Jameel and Jibreel.

4. The English letter e is equivalent to the Arabi short vowel known as fat'ha, as in A'hmed and Mu'hammed.

5. It is more accurate to refer to the land-grabbing Israelis, who establish illegal settlements in the Palestinian territory of the West Bank, as illegal Israeli settlers, than referring to them as colonists.

The term colony is a reference to a large entity or a country, such as American states before independence. It was also a reference to Egypt, and India, when they were British colonies.

In addition, the term "colony" represents a positive nostalgic theme, in the minds of native speakers of English, particularly in America and Britain.

6. It is more accurate to use the verb "abduct" than the verb "detain," in reference to taking Palestinian citizens by force to prisons and interrogation centers, by Israeli occupation regime soldiers. This is because the presence of the Israeli occupation regime forces is illegal in the Palestinian territories, and they have no jurisdiction over the Palestinian people.

UN official: People in Gaza have nowhere safe to go and very little to survive on

NEW YORK, Saturday, December 2, 2023 (WAFA)-

United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Martin Griffiths said with the renewed in the fighting, the people in Gaza have nowhere safe to go and very little to survive on.

While the past week offered us a glimpse of what can happen when the guns fall silent, the situation in Khan Younus today is a shocking reminder of what happens when they dont, he said.

Over the past seven days, hostages were released, families were reunited and more patients received some medical care, he said in a statement.

The volume of aid into and across Gaza increased. And while it barely scratched the surface of what people need, it still allowed aid agencies to provide some basic supplies, reach areas which have been cut off for weeks, and offer some respite to deeply traumatized families, he added.

Today, in a matter of hours, scores were reportedly killed and injured. Families were told to evacuate, again. Hopes were dashed, said the UN official.

Almost two months into the fighting, the children, women and men of Gaza are all terrified. They have nowhere safe to go and very little to survive on. They live surrounded by disease, destruction and death. This is unacceptable. We need to maintain and build on the progress in aid delivery. We need civilians and the life-sustaining infrastructure they rely on to be protected, he said, calling for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire and an end to the fighting.

The Israeli occupation regime orders aid trucks into Gaza to be stopped until further notice - PRCS

GAZA, Friday, December 1, 2023 (WAFA) -

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) announced that Israeli occupation forces have blocked the entry of aid through the Rafa'h land crossing.

PRCS, in a statement, said that the occupation authorities have informed it of its decision to prevent organizations and entities working at the Rafa'h Land Crossing from bringing aid trucks from the Egyptian side into the Gaza Strip starting tonight and until further notice.

The Israeli decision ordered the crossing to be cleared out of trucks on the Palestinian side as soon as possible.

PRCS stressed that this decision escalates the suffering of citizens, and further amplifies challenges faced by humanitarian and relief organizations attempting to alleviate the suffering of citizens and displaced persons in light of the ongoing Israeli aggression on the Strip.

The Israeli occupation resumed its aggression on the Gaza Strip Friday at 7:00 AM, only minutes after six days of humanitarian truce.

The truce allowed - for the first time since the start of Israels aggression on the Strip on October 7th - the entry of humanitarian and relief aid trucks. However, the quantity of aid and fuel trucks was inadequate to meet the growing needs of civilians in light of the current humanitarian crisis in the Strip.

Dozens of civilian casualties in a barrage of Israeli airstrikes in Gaza City and Bait Lahya

Initial Reporting on December 2, 2023 (WAFA)

Dozens of innocent civilians, including children and women, were murdered and others sustained injuries this evening in a series of indiscriminate Israeli aerial and artillery strikes targeting the neighborhoods of Shuja'iyya, Al-Tuffa'h, Al-Zaytoun, Al-Sabra, Al-Shaikh Radhwan, and Te Al-Hawa in Gaza City.

WAFA correspondents, quoting witnesses, reported horrifying scenes of dozens of bodies scattered in the streets of Gaza City, with rescue efforts obstructed by the nonstop, intensive Israeli bombardment on the city.

Eyewitnesses also reported that the residential complex targeted by the Israeli occupation forces in the Shujaiyya neighborhood, east of Gaza City, housed at least 1,000 people, resulting in the tragic deaths and injuries of dozens of innocent civilians.

The Civil Defense in Gaza said it has been facing tremendous challenges in its rescue efforts due to the ongoing Israeli airstrikes, with direct targeting of their personnel and medical crews attempting to rescue victims from the rubble of homes in various areas of the Gaza Strip.

In the northern Gaza Strip, Israeli occupation forces bombed a populated home belonging to the Barrawi family in the city of Bait Lahya, resulting in the murder and injury of scores of civilians.

The Israeli airstrikes extended to the vicinity of Kamal 'Adwan Hospital in northern Gaza, while in central Gaza, medical sources reported an influx of injuries to Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital following the aerial bombardment by Israeli reconnaissance planes targeting a group of civilians in the Al-Maghazi refugee camp.

Earlier in the day, Israeli occupation forces committed another massacre in Jabalya refugee camp, where around 100 civilians lost their lives in a missile strike targeting a residential building belonging to the Obeid family. Dozens were injured in the massacre, with many others missing under the rubble.

Since the beginning of the Israeli offensive on Gaza on October 7, over 16,000 Palestinians, including 6,500 children and more than 4,500 women, have been killed by Israeli aerial or artillery bombardment, according to non-final estimates. Additionally, over 38,000 individuals have been wounded.

Meantime, thousands of civilians remain unaccounted for, with fears mounting that many may have perished beneath the ruins of their homes. Despite continuous efforts by emergency and rescue teams, the retrieval of these individuals has proven challenging amid the severe shortage of civil defense equipment under Israel's relentless aggression on the enclave.

Among the martyrs is one of the most distinguished researchers in the world and Head of the Islamic University in Gaza Dr. Sufyan Tayih, who was killed along with his family, the sources added.

Civil defense teams and volunteers are still searching for the missing under the rubble with primitive tools.
