In light of the annual commemoration of the Sabra and Shatila massacre, the Palestinian people relive moments of renewed pain and wounds that continue to bleed. This massacre took place from September 16th to 18th, 1982 when Israeli militias stormed the camp and mercilessly killed civilians, showing no mercy towards children or the elderly. 

On September 17th, 1982, despite international Israeli assurances of non-interference and protection of innocent civilians, Israel invaded the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps. Israeli militias committed the massacre, killing around 4,000 individuals in this isolated camp. 75% of the victims were Palestinians, 20% were Lebanese, and 5% were from various Arab nationalities.

The Israeli occupation does not acknowledge that it deliberately shoots to kill anyone who is not Israeli. The bodies were left lying on the ground, while many residents fled to hospitals in an attempt to save their lives. However, even the hospitals were not safe from the invasion by Israeli militias, who killed Palestinian patients, injured individuals, and even abducted people from the Akka Hospital.

The scenes of the massacre indisputably prove that Israel continues its policy of deliberate killing and committing massacres against our defenseless people. In 2009, Israel launched missiles from F-16 aircraft, targeting Gaza and committing the massacre of the Al-North School. The Huda Ghalia massacre was also committed using F-35 aircraft, killing children, women, and elderly individuals while they were spending family time on the beach in Gaza.

These events and scenes have been recurring before the eyes of Palestinians since the beginning of 1948. These scenes necessitate urgent intervention by the international community and human rights organizations to put an end to the bloodshed against these defenseless people.
