Tadamun: IOF killed 1,594 Palestinians in 2009

RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- The international Tadamun (solidarity) institution for human rights has said that the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) had killed 1,594 Palestinians in 2009 including 473 children and 126 women.

In a report released on Wednesday, Tadamun said that the IOF killed 1,460 citizens during the war on Gaza while 134 others were killed in IOF incursions in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

It noted that January was the bloodiest month in the history of Arab-Israeli conflict since 1967 since 1,076 citizens were killed with an average of 30 citizens daily.

For its part, the Palestinian center for human rights said that the IOF troops killed six Palestinians and wounded five others over the past week including a child and a woman.

In a report on Wednesday, the center noted that the IOF soldiers rounded up 26 citizens over the same period with 28 incursions in the West Bank and two raids in Gaza Strip recorded.

It underlined that the IOF was still closing all crossings of the Strip with partial opening and was chasing Palestinian fishermen at sea.
