GENEVA – The estimated number of Palestinians killed or missing for days under rubble as a result of the unprecedented Israeli military attack on the Gaza Strip now virtually exceeds the number of the Srebrenica Massacre victims, Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor said today.اضافة اعلان

As of Wednesday afternoon, the Geneva-based Euro-Med Monitor reported that 6,734 Palestinians—including 2,812 children—had been killed and about 1,755 more were reported missing beneath the rubbles of demolished residential buildings.

The Srebrenica genocide took place from July 11 to 22, 1995, during the Bosnia and Herzegovina war, which is considered one of the worst massacres that Europe has seen since World War II.

The massacre took place in Srebrenica City, where 8,372 Bosniak Muslims lost their lives, most of whom were males aged between 12 and 77 years.

Euro-Med Monitor says that Israel’s conduct in Gaza bespeaks of an annihilation campaign as a form of retaliation against the entire population, employing heavy artillery and ceaseless bombing of densely populated residential areas, inhabited houses, and civilian gatherings causing the greatest number of casualties among civilians compared to any previous war on Gaza.

During their tours of Gaza's hospitals, Euro-Med Monitor’s team witnessed hundreds of injured men, women, and children who were laying on stretchers, beds, and the ground and receiving inadequate medical care, while dozens of bodies, including those of children, were kept in tents in the squares due to the overcrowding in the hospitals’ morgues.
