The Israeli occupying forces have killed 75 children and 23 Palestinian women during the first half of this year, says a report published yesterday by the National and International Relations Department of the PLO in Ramallah.

The report informs us that the Israeli military occupation authorities continued their violations of the rights of the Palestinians, showing no respect to international protests and Palestinian efforts to secure peace in the region, and to end the conflict.

The report highlighted the main violations against the Palestinian people during the first half of 2008, most important of all the violation of the right of living … The report pointed out that the occupation army killed 466 Palestinian citizens during military operations carried out in the Palestinian territories during the first half of this year, including 75 children under the age of 18 and 23 women.

131 Palestinians have died as a result of the unjust siege imposed on Gaza, preventing Palestinians from leaving to receive adequate treatment abroad, bringing the number of martyrs as a result of the siege to 200.

In addition to the deaths, 1,740 Palestinians were wounded by the occupation bullets which left dozens permanently disabled.

During these attacks a Palestinian journalist was killed while on duty when an Israeli tank rocket was fired at his car in Gaza, besides killing two disabled persons.

At the same time the report confirmed that the occupation authorities continue to arrest Palestinian people, bringing the total of detained Palestinians during the last six months to 2,776 people, raising the number of Palestinian prisoners in occupation jails to almost 11,000 prisoners, almost 1,000 of them are ill.

32 patients reside permanently in the prison hospital in Ramle, not receiving adequate medical treatment.

Meanwhile, 80 Palestinian women are kept in Israeli prisons, 29 of them are mothers of 76 children. Five of the female prisoners are minors, and 29 are sick. All of them experience humiliation and abuse by the Israeli prison wardens.
