Al-Akhbar Management

Since Israel's assault on the Gaza Strip started on July 8, 625 Palestinians have been martyred, 80 percent of whom are civilians. After the horrific al-Shujayeh massacre, people around the world marched and protested in solidarity with the besieged people of Gaza. Some rallies led to clashes with extremist Zionist groups, like in France, while others were prevented by police from reaching Israeli embassies and consulates. Meanwhile, the enemy's massacres continue and the Israeli Occupation Forces continue to target children, women, and hospitals across the Gaza Strip that has been forgotten by the Arabs and abandoned by the world. Gaza's resistance fighters live in every corner of the Strip as its martyrs lie in its ruins while mothers teach their children the meaning of resistance and patience while waiting for the nearing victory.
