The bombardment resulted in the wounding 36 citizens who were on the beach, two of whom are in critical condition.
Al Mezan Center for Human Rights condemns this intensified IOF offensive in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT), and confirms that the IOF are committing war crimes and unnecessarily using excessive power against Palestinians.
In a separate incident, on the same day at approximately 5.
10pm, IOF military planes shelled a car near Al Shaima School in Beit Lahia, injuring three civilians.
Al Mezan Center hereby calls upon the international community, most notably the High Contracting Parties to Geneva Convention, to immediately intervene to halt Israeli crimes and provide international protection to civilians from the ongoing war crimes.
Al Mezan believes that the intervention of the international community constitutes a legal and ethical duty and necessity at a time that the IOF are increasing their offensive, taking advantage of the silence of the international community and the backup from the Americans.
