GAZA, (PIC)-- The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) killed eight Palestinians including a child and wounded five others in the Gaza Strip in the past month of January, the Mizan center for human rights reported on Monday.
The center said in a report that the IOF soldiers arrested seven Palestinians in the same month and continued its harassment of fishermen.
It said that the IOF opened the gates of Gaza dam in January which flooded eastern Gaza and partially damaged 78 homes, while its air raids targeted three homes, two of which were completely destroyed.
Mizan asked the world community to immediately act to check the IOF violation of the international and humanitarian laws along with human rights and to bring to trial the Israeli war criminals.
The center said that Israel should no longer evade sanctions for violating human rights and rules of the international laws in the occupied Palestinian lands.
