Gaza Genocide (2023)

Since October 7th, 2023, the Israeli forces have dropped thousands of bombs on Gaza indiscriminately, leveling several parts of Gaza and committing numerous war crimes. Here are some of the main assaults:

  • 65,000+ tons of bombs: Israel has dropped over 65,000 tons of missiles and bombs on Gaza Strip, that's about 178 tons per km2, 3 times more than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima.
  • Loss of Life: At least 33,175 Palestinian civilians have been killed, including 13,000 children and 8,400 women. Additionally, at least 75,886 people have been injured, with more than 75% being children and women. More than 8,000 people are missing.
  • Bombing of Al-Ahli Arab Hospital: Israel bombed Gaza's oldest hospital, Al Ahli Arab, on the 17th of October, 2023, killing nearly 500 people marking the highest death toll of any single incident in Gaza during the genocide. The victims were mostly displaced people seeking shelter in the hospital. On the day of the strike, the hospital was overwhelmed with about 1,000 to 3,000 people, as it and other medical facilities in Gaza had been crammed with casualties beyond their capacity since the Israeli airstrikes began.

    The bombing was denounced by world leaders, with strong statements from Middle Eastern countries. Jordan canceled a planned summit with U.S. President Joe Biden in response to the incident. Egyptian President, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, condemned Israel's bombardment of the hospital. Saudi Arabia also issued a firm statement condemning the attack.
  • Destruction of Healthcare Facilities: 15 out of 36 hospitals in Gaza are partially functional, and several of them, including Al-Quds and Al-Shifa, faced severe crises. They ceased operations due to a lack of fuel and the cutting off of electricity by Israel.
  • Journalist Murders: A tragic highlight of this assault is the death of about 100 Palestinian journalists and media workers, making this period the deadliest for journalists since records began in 1992. Moreover, at least three Lebanese journalists were also killed.
  • Collective Punishment: Israel stopped the entry of water, electricity, fuel, and aid into Gaza, exacerbating the crisis. 9 out of 10 people go without food for the whole day. The UN denounced this as a form of collective punishment.
  • The Second Nakba: On November 10, intense bombing and armed pressure by Israel resulted in the displacement of approximately 200,000 Palestinians within Gaza from the north to the south. Overall, since October 7, the conflict has led to the displacement of over 1.6 million people from their homes. This mass displacement significantly strained the already fragile humanitarian situation in the region.

    This migration was characterized by large groups of people, including families with children, the elderly, and those with disabilities, who fled on foot with minimal belongings, often waving white flags as a sign of their civilian status. Multiple videos have confirmed that Israeli soldiers fired at civilians, including those fleeing barefoot from the north waving white flags.

Some videos from Gaza

IDF Soldiers Mocking Palestinians

The IDF soliders have shared many videos of themselves mocking, dancing, and being proud, after committing barbaric massacres in Gaza. Apart from bombing the residential buildings and filming them with proud, the soldiers are also seen mocking dead chilren by playing with children's toys and riding their bicycles. It's important to note that at least 13,000 children have been killed by Israel within 170 days, and thousands of children have lost their limbs — many witnessed being amputated without anesthesia.

Below are some of the videos IDF soldiers shared, mocking Palestinians:

Genocidal Intent of Israel

Below are several statements made by members of the Israeli government after October 7, which compellingly indicate an intention towards the genocide of Palestinians, rather than a focused engagement with resistance fighters. These statements highlight a disregard for the civilian population in Gaza, underscoring a lack of concern for the lives of women and children:

Recently, a conference has been held in West Jerusalem calling for the occupation of Gaza once the war is over. This highlights the fact that Israel wants to occupy more land and spread colonialism:
