Four-year-old child and youth wounded as Israel attacks across Gaza

Palestinian medical sources in the Gaza Strip reported that a Palestinian child and a young man were wounded on Friday at dawn, when the Israeli Air Force bombarded a number of areas in the coastal region.

The Palestinian News and Info Agency, WAFA, reported that an Israeli “Apache” chopper fired at least one missile at a residential area west of Beit Lahia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, causing damage to a number of homes, also wounding a resident in his twenties, and a 4-year-old child identified as Hayat Taha.

The two were moved to Kamal Odwan Hospital in Beit Lahia, suffering mild-to-moderate injuries, WAFA reported.

Furthermore, F-16 Israeli jets carried out two airstrikes targeting Jabalia city, and Jabalia An-Nazla, in northern Gaza; damage was reported, and a warehouse caught fire in Jabalia An-Nazla.

The army also carried out several airstrikes targeting areas in Khan Younis and Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, and a fourth airstrike targeting an area in Al-Boreij refugee camp, in central Gaza. more

Video: Israeli Apartheid Week - Call it as it is

Calling the Israeli regime as one of apartheid is not rhetoric, nor is it an exaggeration or a propaganda tool. This is the reality in modern day Palestine, where the Israeli regime is based on discrimination, through laws, practices, education and most aspects of life. This apartheid regime not only imposed on the people in Palestine, but also on millions of Palestinian refugees denied their right to return home because they are of the wrong religion.

As awareness across the world continues to increase regarding the Israeli Apartheid regime in Palestine, each effort in this aspect would help accelerate the conclusion of this shameful page in history. And as this awareness rises, campaigns to boycott, divest and sanction this regime provide a very effective and natural response. The world witnesses a similar response transpire and bear fruit in the case of South Africa, and there are very good reasons to believe that it will do the same in the case of Palestine.
