Here is an excerpt of a public announcement by the Palestinian Health Ministry in the Gaza Strip:



“Dr Ashraf al-Qedra [its spokesperson] reported on Sunday that Israeli soldiers have killed 112 Palestinians and injured 13,190 since the Great Return March protests started on Palestinian Land Day, March 30.

“502 Palestinians were shot in the head and neck; 283 were shot in the chest and back; 225 were shot in the abdomen and pelvis; 938 were shot in the arm; 325 were shot in the leg; 1,117 suffered various cuts and bruises to several parts of their bodies.

“He also said 27 of the wounded Palestinians suffered amputations of their legs, one of his arm and four others had  fingers severed by Israeli fire. Dr al-Qedra added that the soldiers also shot and killed one medic and injured 323 others with live fire and gas bombs, in addition to causing damage to 37 ambulances.”

The only “democracy” in the Middle East is a true slaughterhouse, nothing less. The whole world must wake up to the truth and nothing but the truth.
