New Year's Eve vigil to commemorate 5th anniversary of the Israeli attack on Gaza

category dublin | rights and freedoms | event notice author Friday December 27, 2013 10:02author by IPSC - IPSC Report this post to the editors

End the siege of Gaza!

To commemorate the fifth anniversary of the Israeli ‘Operation Cast Lead’ attack on Gaza, and to highlight Israeli's ongoing cruel and illegal siege of Gaza, the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) is calling on people to gather at 2pm at the Ha’penny Bridge, Dublin on New Year’s Eve. Please bring Palestinian flags if you have them.

Please spare an hour of your time to remember the victims of the attack and the ongoing illegal Israeli siege of Gaza, where Israeli attacks and killings are ongoing, even in the face of the man-made crisis there arising from sporadic power outages as a result of severe fuel shortages.


In the past week alone, reports the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights, in Gaza Israeli forces have killed 2 Palestinians, including a 3-year-old child, and wounded 12 others, including 3 children and a mother, in several aerial and land attacks in and other shooting incidents along the border fence.

On 20 December 2013, in an excessive use of lethal force, Israeli forces killed a Palestinian civilian and wounded his brother while they were near the border fence, north of Beit Hanoun, in the northern Gaza Strip while they were collecting plastics and metals near the border fence.

On 24 December 2013, after an Israeli soldier was killed by a Palestinian sniper on the borders of the Gaza Strip, Israeli forces launched several aerial and land attacks on civilian objects and on training sites of Palestinian armed groups. As a result, a child was killed and a woman and her two children were wounded.

On 20 December 2013, 2 civilians, including a child and a coal-supplier, were wounded when a group of civilians headed to the east of Jabalia, in the northern Gaza Strip, and threw stones at Israeli soldiers positioned along the border fence. Israeli soldiers opened fire at the stone throwers, wounding 2 of them, including a child, and a coal-supplier standing in front of his shop around 70 meters away from the borderline.

On the same day, 2 Palestinian civilians were wounded when Israeli forces stationed along the border fence, east of Khan Yunis, opened fire at a group of civilians who were present on agricultural lands to the west of the border fence.

On 21 December 2013, a Palestinian civilian was wounded when Israeli forces stationed along the border fence, east of Khan Yunis, opened fire at a group of civilians who were present on agricultural lands and streets to the south of the border fence.

On 23 December 2013, a Palestinian civilian was wounded by 3 bullets when Israeli forces stationed along the border fence in Beit Lahia opened fire at him when he was at Beit Lahia beach.

On 24 December 2013, a worker was wounded by 2 bullets to the right hand and thigh when Israeli forces stationed on the northern borders of the Gaza Strip opened fire at a group of workers who were collecting metals in al-Ghoul area, northwest of Beit Lahia.

On 20 December 2013, Israeli forces stationed off al-Waha resort, northwest of Beit Lahia, opened fire sporadically at Palestinian fishing boats that were sailing about 3 nautical miles offshore.
