    Medical sources confirmed that a Palestinian, who was identified as Sadam al-Abed Shalash, 27, succumbed to his wounds that he had sustained during the weekly naval march.

    The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza, Shalash was among 32 Palestinians, who were injured after Israeli forces opened live ammunition towards protesters participating in the march.

    The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza said one Palestinian, identified as Naji Jamal Mohammad Za’anin , 25, was killed when the Israeli missiles struck a site in Beit Lahia, in northern Gaza. The Palestinian was from Beit Hanoun, also in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

    The Israeli airforce dropped bombs in several parts of Gaza Wednesday morning, wounding 14 Palestinians in addition to killing Za’anin, including six schoolchildren, in Deir al-Balah city, in central Gaza, before they were rushed to the Al-Aqsa Hospital.

    The Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, said the army targeted three of its centers in several parts of the Gaza Strip.

    The first center, Abu Jarad, south of Gaza city, and the second, al-Waha, west of Beit Lahia, in northern Gaza, and the third in the Zeitoun neighborhood, in the center of Gaza city.

    The army later fired more missiles into areas in Rafah, in southern Gaza, and another site of the al-Qassam Brigades in Deir al-Balah, in central Gaza. In addition, the Israeli Air Force fired missiles into agricultural lands in the az-Zanna area, in Bani Suheila town, east of Khan Younis, and a near the seaport, west of Khan Younis, in southern Gaza.

    For its part, Egypt started contacting Palestinian officials in Gaza, and Israeli officials, in an attempt to mediate an prevent a further escalation in the area.

    The bombs were dropped on Gaza after unknown Palestinians fired a rocket into Israel Wednesday morning, causing no injuries.

    Abu Mujahed, the spokesperson of the Popular Resistance Committees in Gaza, said in a statement that no Palestinian resistance groups were involved in the firing of the rocket – and that all the armed Palestinian resistance groups are always willing to claim responsibility if they ever do fire rockets.

    The statement was made after discussions with the representatives of all the Palestinian armed resistance groups.

    Ariel Gold, a member of Code Pink for Peace and an outspoken proponent of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement in the U.S., was detained at the airport in Tel Aviv, Israel on Sunday, and was denied entry and sent back to the U.S.

    The movement that Gold is a part of, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement, is aimed at pressuring Israel economically to get the government of Israel to adhere to its obligations under international law and signed agreements.
    (...)
    Gold had been told the last time she left Israel that she would need to notify the Israeli Ministry of the Interior the next time she came to Israel. She obtained a student visa to study Jewish Studies at Hebrew University, and notified the Ministry of Interior as they requested.

    But despite that fact, she was deported and her passport stamped with a denial of entry, after 8 hours of interrogation and detention at the Ben Gurion Airport.

    Her student visa was canceled and the Minister of Interior Arye Deri weighed in on the case personally, stating, “Gold has distributed videos on social networks, in which she harasses IDF soldiers and Border Police officers in Hebron, accusing the soldiers of apartheid and oppression, and that their actions do not conform to Jewish values”.

      La responsable de Code Pink Ariel Gold était venue participer à un programme d’études juives à l’université hébraïque ; selon les ministres, elle était là pour prôner le boycott

      Cette affaire met en lumière une loi relativement nouvelle qui permet au ministre de l’Intérieur d’expulser ou de refouler du pays les partisans du mouvement BDS.

      Toutefois, les origines juives de Gold signifient que sous les termes de la loi du retour – qui offre la citoyenneté israélienne aux Juifs du monde entier – Gold pourrait venir en Israël en tant que citoyenne, mais pas en temps que touriste.

      L’Autorité de la Population et de l’Immigration a fait obstacle à l’entrée d’une citoyenne juive américaine en Israël ce lundi soir, en raison de ses relations avec le mouvement de boycott, sanctions et désinvestissement.

  • » Israeli Army Kills A Palestinian, Injures Three, Then Abducts Two Of Them
    IMEMC News - July 3, 2018 4:02 AM
    http://imemc.org/article/israeli-army-kills-a-palestinian-injures-three-then-abducts-two-of-them

    Israeli soldiers killed, on Monday evening, at least one Palestinian, and injured three others, including two who were then abducted by the soldiers after being injured, and one teenager who was rushed to a Palestinian hospital in Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

    The Israeli news agency Haaretz reports that the four young men were trying to cross the border into Israel when the Israeli army spotted them and began shooting.

    But video footage of the incident published by Quds News shows that the soldiers had invaded the Gaza Strip and were well within Palestinian territory when they grabbed the young men and dragged them across to their military base.

    (...) Only one of the wounded Palestinians, a 16 year old child, managed to escape the army’s attempt to abduct him, and was rushed to Abu Yousef Najjar Hospital, in Rafah, suffering a gunshot wound to his shoulder.

    The three other Palestinians were taken by the soldiers who invaded the Palestinian lands, near the border fence, and took them away.

    A Palestinian medic said the Palestinians (as confirmed by the video footage) did not cross the fence, and that he and his colleagues were only twenty meters away from the wounded Palestinians.

    “We tried to provide aid to the wounded Palestinians; we were just twenty meters away from them,” the medic said, “but the soldiers threatened to shoot us, and forced us away.”

    It is worth mentioning that some media outlets have reported that two of the young Palestinians were killed, while others report that one was killed. Because the Israeli military is holding three of them, the extent of their wounds is unknown, and it is unclear whether one or two of them are dead.

    The Israeli army claimed that the Palestinians were carrying cutters and flammable materials, and “were attempting to set fire to a vacant Israeli military sniper post along the border fence.

    The Israeli army issued a statement holding the Hamas movement in Gaza fully responsible for “all attempts to cross the border fence and attack military installations.”

    So far, the names of the Palestinians, including the deceased, remain unknown as they, except the wounded teen who was rushed to a Palestinian hospital, have been captured by the army.

    The artistic director of the D. Maria II National Theater, Tiago Rodrigues, canceled his participation in the Israel Festival, scheduled to take place in Jerusalem next month, and announced his decision to join the cultural boycott of Israel, according to a statement released by the theater, today.

    “I have decided not to present my show at the Israel Festival in June because I believe it is the only way to ensure that my artwork will not serve to justify or support a government that commits deliberate human rights violations and is currently violently attacking the Palestinian people,” says the author, actor and director.

    Rodrigues says that although his decision as the artistic director of a national theater “could cause discomfort in the diplomatic plane”, “it was a well thought-out decision and I must, above all, obey my conscience. I have consulted with friends and colleagues whom I trust, and I have read statements by many intellectuals and artists, notably Israelis. Also I bear witness to the Israeli government’s terrible and violent conduct in this moment.” (...)

      J’ai décidé de ne pas présenter mon spectacle en Israël festival en juin parce que je crois que c’est la seule façon de garantir que mon travail artistique ne servira pas à justifier ou à soutenir un gouvernement qui commet délibérément des violations des droits de l’homme et est actuellement en train d’attaquer violemment le peuple palestinien. Je comprends que plusieurs professionnels, tant au Portugal qu’en Israël, ont déjà consacré beaucoup de travail aux présentations prévues. Je comprends qu’en tant que directeur artistique d’un théâtre national portugais, ma décision pourrait entraîner une gêne sur le plan diplomatique. C’était une décision réfléchie et je dois surtout obéir à ma conscience. Je me suis conseillé avec des amis et des collègues en qui j’ai confiance. J’ai lu des déclarations de nombreux intellectuels et artistes, notamment israéliens. Il témoigne également de la terrible et violente conduite du gouvernement israélien en ce moment.

      Je comprends maintenant qu’il est impératif de prendre une position claire. J’ai donc décidé non seulement d’annuler ma présence en Israël festival, mais aussi d’adhérer au mouvement de boycott culturel à Israël, dans la conviction que la pression globale et collective pourrait produire des résultats similaires à ceux du boycott à l’Afrique du sud pendant l’apartheid.

      The six men killed in the explosion were identified as:

      1. Mahmoud Waleed al-Ostath , 34, from Deir al-Balah – Central Gaza.

      2. Wisam Ahmad Abu Mahrouq, 27, from Deir al-Balah – Central Gaza.

      3. Taher Issam Shahin, 29, from Deir al-Balah – Central Gaza.

      4. Mousa Ibrahim Salman , 30, from Deir al-Balah – Central Gaza.

      5. Mahmoud Mohammad at-Towashi, from Deir al-Balah – Central Gaza.

      6. Mahmoud Sa’id al-Qeeshawi, 29, from Gaza City.

      The Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, issued a preliminary statement saying that the six Palestinians were senior members of the group, and accused Israel of standing behind the explosion.

      It added that the six Palestinians “managed to track and uncover one of the largest spy and surveillance systems planted by Israel is the coastal region, and that the located spying device was designed to automatically explode once it is uncovered.

      The Brigades described the explosion a “serious, massive crime,” adding that the fighters sacrificed their lives in dismantling and uncovering this surveillance system.

      It held Israel directly responsible for the death of its fighters, and added that “payback will be coming, and will be very painful to the enemy, for this crimes and many previous crimes.”

      Gaza’s air, sea and borders are all controlled by the Israeli military occupation, which has implemented a deadly siege on the tiny coastal Strip since 2007 – preventing the entry of building materials, medical supplies, food and basic necessities, while preventing the exit of Palestinians from Gaza.

      Since March 30th, Palestinian protesters have engaged in weekly demonstrations at the Gaza-Israel border. These demonstrations have been attacked by Israeli sharpshooters stationed at the border, who have killed 45 Palestinians and wounded more than 7,000 – many of whom were wounded with live ammunition fired by Israeli forces at the unarmed demonstrators.
