"Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul, unless for a soul, or for corruption in the land, it is as if he had killed humankind entirely" (The Holy Quran, Al-Ma-ida, 5: 32).

"And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell, wherein he will abide eternally, and Allah has become angry with him, and has cursed him, and has prepared for him a great torment" (Al-Nisa, 4: 93).

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 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 nams 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.

Al-Kaila explained that doctors are still forced to perform surgeries without anesthesia, including those who were injured as a result of the bombing and women who give birth by caesarean sections, noting that during the past 24 hours, the bombing targeted health facilities, which led to the destruction of a primary health care clinic in addition to damage caused in two hospitals.

Since October 7, the occupation authorities have prevented patients from leaving the Gaza Strip for treatment in Jerusalem hospitals and within the 1948 territories, including 2,000 patients with cancer.

As of October 29, about 1,950 citizens were reported missing, including at least 1,050 children, who may be trapped or killed under the rubble waiting to be recovered.

The Health Ministry said that the Civil Defense raised the issue of the decomposition of bodies under collapsed buildings, amid limited rescue missions, which raises humanitarian and environmental concerns.

The Palestine Red Crescent Society announced that, due to the fuel shortage, it was forced to reduce the number of ambulances it operates, and all humanitarian agencies and their employees faced significant restrictions in providing humanitarian aid, as humanitarian partners cannot safely reach people in need and the warehouses in which aid supplies are stored.

The ministry added that 117,000 displaced people, in addition to medical and health personnel and thousands of patients, reside in health facilities.

55% of health sector partners have suspended their operations due to significant damage to infrastructure, forcing hospitals to operate with less than a third of what is needed to treat the large number of wounded, and hospitals are still suffering from a severe fuel shortage, leading to strict rationing and limited use of electricity generators for basic functions only.

The Ministry indicated that maintaining and repairing standby generators, which were not originally intended for continuous operation, is becoming increasingly difficult due to the scarcity of spare parts, which seriously affects the most important functions in hospitals and the ability of ambulances to respond.

She noted the possibility of stopping newborn incubators, pointing out that there are 350,000 patients with non-communicable diseases, and 1,000 patients in need of dialysis, as 80% of dialysis machines are in hospitals in northern Gaza.

UN relief chief says crisis in occupied Palestinian Territory is a global crisis

NEW YORK, Wednesday, November 1, 2023 (WAFA) -

Scores of civilians have been killed in Gaza following recent attacks on the Jabalya refugee camp. This is just the latest atrocity to befall the people of Gaza where the fighting has entered an even more terrifying phase, with increasingly dreadful humanitarian consequences, said Martin Griffiths, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, following his two-day visit to Israel and the occupied Palestinian Territory.

"In Gaza, women, children and men are being starved, traumatized and bombed to death. They have lost all faith in humanity and all hope of a future. Their despair is palpable," he said. 

"In the West Bank, the death toll is rising. Violence and the closure of checkpoints mean that people cannot access food, jobs, health care and other essential services," he added.

Meanwhile, the world seems unable, or unwilling, to act. This cannot go on, said Griffiths.

We need to be able to provide the essentials for survival particularly water, food, medicine and fuel safely, immediately and at scale. The more than 200 trucks which have crossed into Gaza so far following painstaking negotiations offer some relief but are nowhere near enough. 

He stressed the need for the warring parties to agree to pauses in the fighting. "This is the only viable option to get relief items into Gaza right now. Repeated humanitarian pauses would allow us to provide more aid to those in need across Gaza, thus alleviating peoples suffering and reducing the risk of civil disorder. Such pauses would also allow the sick and wounded to seek medical care," he said.

"We need those with influence to use that influence to ensure respect for the rules of war, de-escalate the conflict, and avoid a spillover," he added.

Failure to act now will have consequences far beyond the region because this is a global crisis, the UN relief chief concluded.
