Victims of Israeli Death Machine (Part 3)

Israeli carnage continued:

1956 - In October–November 1956, the Israeli Occupation Forces overran the heavily populated Gaza Strip killing more than five hundred civilians, either in actual combat or in a subsequent series of massacres.

1956 – During the Sinai-Suez War, Israeli Occupation Forces reportedly killed fleeing, unarmed, Egyptian troops by the hundreds including Egyptian prisoners of war.

1956 - In October 1956, the Israeli Paratroop Brigade killed about 40 POWs near the Mitle Pass. When details of the atrocities were revealed in 1995 Egypt protested to Israel and demanded an investigation – Israelis refused to make the results public.

1948 - On November 2, 1948, an Israel Occupation Forces (103rd Battalion’s patrol) attacked the campsite of a small Bedouin subtribe, Arab al Mawasa, west of the Sea of Galilee. The soldiers torched the Arabs’ homes [tents]and captured 19 Arab males, 14 of whom were later liquidated.

Based on the United Nations, American, and British documents, which surfaced during the 1980s and 1990s, Jewish troops massacred Arab civillians in up to 20 separate incidents during the first Arab-Israeli war of 1948. “[The massacres] range in size from the shooting of a handful or several dozen civilians arbitrarily selected and lined up against a village wall after its conquest (as occurred, for example, in Majd al Kurum, Bi’na and Dir al Assad, Ilaboun, Jish, Saliha, Safsaf, and Sasa during Hiram) to the slaughter of some 250 civilians and detainees during a firefight in the town of Lydda, southeast of Tel Aviv, on the afternoon of July 12, 1948.”

“The largest of these expulsions took place in the towns of Lydda and Ramle on July 12 and 13, when upward of fifty thousand people were dispatched onto roads eastward. In retrospect, it is clear that what occurred in 1948 in Palestine was a variety of ethnic cleansing of Arab areas by Jews. It is impossible to say how many of the 700,000 or so Palestinians who became refugees in 1948 were physically expelled, as distinct from simply fleeing a combat zone. What is certain is that almost all were barred by the Israeli government decision of June 1948 and, consequently, by IDF fire, from returning to their homes or areas. Similarly, almost all of the four hundred or so Arab villages overrun and depopulated by Israel were in the course of 1948 or immediately thereafter razed to the ground…”

1948 - Between 9 and 11 April 1948, over 100 Arab townspeople were massacred by Jewish paramilitaries in Deir Yassin near Jerusalem in the British Mandate of Palestine. This was “the starkest early warning of a calculated depopulation of over 400 Arab villages and cities and the expulsion of over 700,000 Palestinian inhabitants to make room for ... Jews.” http://www.deiryassin.org/mh2001.html

From 1975 to 1990, Lebanon was involved in a civil war between various groups. The civil war was a direct consequence of the creation of the State of Israel. In the 1948 Arab-Israeli War tens of thousands of Palestinians came to live in south Lebanon. The total death toll in Lebanon for the whole civil war period was up to 100,000 victims.
