EVIL: OCCUPIER DESTROYS MOSQUES – PROTECTED BUILDINGS BY LAW
Civilian cultural, including religious buildings or houses of worship, are protected buildings according to the Laws of War. The Jewish military does not see fit to follow any laws, much less the Laws of War committing many war crimes in this newest genocidal attack on Gaza. During this month of Ramadan, the Jewish military has been especially careful to bomb mosques as the call to prayer sounds and worshippers are on their way to pray. This psychological warfare is meant to take away a source of solace for the besieged Palestinians in Gaza, as the mosque, especially during this time, and prayers are a source of comfort in between the maniacal bombings of Gaza. This tactic by the hate-filled Jews of Israel is a clear statement of their mindset, and ruthless ambition, not just to commit genocide, but to collectively torture and punish all in Gaza for not having the grace to just lie down and allow the occupier and oppressor to do as they see fit and destroy Palestine and clear the way for Jews. But what they do not seem to understand is that this only strengthens the resolve of Palestinians, who will never bow, never submit and will prevail.

Israeli warplanes bombed Farouq mosque in Nuseirat camp in Gaza Strip before dawn prayers on Saturday, which led to its complete destruction in addition to significant damage to the neighboring homes.
Few days ago, 4 Palestinians were killed and 5 others were injured in an Israeli airstrike on the martyr Anwar Aziz mosque in Jabaliya
According to the Awqaf Ministry, at least 10 mosques were directly bombed during the past five days including two mosques in Khan Younis and two mosques in northern Gaza.
On Friday, Israeli warplanes targeted Dar al-Salam mosque’s surrounding areas, which led to the killing of one citizen and the injury of eight others while on their way back home after performing Tarawih prayers.
Three other Palestinians, including an elderly man, were killed while heading to Rahman mosque to perform Magrib prayers.
In this regard, Undersecretary of Awqaf Ministry Dr. Hassan Sifi said that targeting mosques by Israeli warplanes exposed Israel’s spiteful, barbaric image.
Everybody can see now the evidently racist essence of such Israeli terrorism against Gazan civilians, which comes out into view quite observably in the droves of jets, gunboats, and artillery rocking the Strip, he elaborated.
“Israeli hatred culminated in the bombing of cemeteries, mosques and places of worship, most notably al-Farouq mosque in Nusairat and Anwar Aziz in the northern province”.
He said that bombing places of worship is a flagrant violation of divine laws and international conventions. He held the Israeli occupation fully responsible for the continuing crimes, calling for providing urgent protection for the Palestinian people and places of worship.
Dozens of mosques were totally or partially destroyed during Israeli wars against Gaza in 2008 and 2012.
