Israeli occupation forces killed 149 Palestinians during 2019, including 33 children, the National Gathering for Palestinian Martyrs’ Families said yesterday.

According to Quds Press, the gathering said in a statement that the number of the martyrs was similar to the number of Palestinians killed each year over the past five years.

While the number of children among those killed was 33, the statement said that 112 of Palestinian martyrs (74 per cent) were killed in the Gaza Strip and 37 (33 per cent) were killed in the occupied West Bank.

The statement noted that 69 of the martyrs killed in Gaza perished under Israeli air strikes, including eight from the same family whose house was attacked and completely destroyed.

The bodied of 15 martyrs were detained by Israeli occupation forces in 2019, raising the number of bodies held by Israel to 306.

  1. And the numbers of Palestinians injured during that same period would be much higher…..The Israeli’s are ruthless and relentless when it comes to the Palestinians……..whom they regard as Vermin.

  2. Demonic. Satanic. Psychotic. Criminal. There is no adequate word to describe the Zionist monster so-called Israel. For sure, “all of the above” and many more.

    R.I.P. all the Palestinian martyrs. I am (at least) indirectly complicit.
