Civilians must be protected in Gaza and Southern Israel
Amnesty International / TAKE ACTION
02-Jan-2009 (5 comments)

Amnesty International has called on Israeli forces to immediately halt the unlawful attacks carried out as part of the escalation of violence which has caused over 400 Palestinian deaths and some 1900 injuries since December 27.  Amnesty International also condemns the rocket fire by armed Palestinian groups including Hamas that have resulted in the death of 4 Israelis with several dozen injured. This is the highest level of Palestinian fatalities and casualties in four decades of Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.  Scores of unarmed civilians, as well as police personnel who were not directly participating in the hostilities, are among the Palestinian victims of the Israeli bombardment in the Gaza Strip.



Humanitarian Action Alert

Click here to Take Action by sending email to Secretary Rice

As the number of casualties continues to mount, civilians in Gaza are in increasingly dire need of food, medical and other emergency assistance. Ask Secretary Rice to urgently express deep concern about Israel's disproportional response and its policies which have brought the Gaza Strip to the brink of humanitarian disaster. Also urge Secretary Rice to call on Israeli authorities and Hamas to immediately cease all unlawful attacks and help reverse the dire humanitarian crisis in Gaza by exerting pressure on Israel to open the crossings to allow adequate quantities of humanitarian aid -- including food, water, medicine and fuel into Gaza.

I also sent it to a large group of my friends and some of them in turn will spread the word... I do believe that petitions show public opinion and even on some occasions IRI has changed or reversed decisions based on public opinion. This is something we can do and lets hope for the best. Thanks again!



Thank you IRANdokht
