Condemnation of latest attacks and condolences for Mr. Issam Younis, Board Member of AMAN

Issued by The Coalition for Accountability and Integrity - AMAN



Translations: AR


The Coalition for Accountability & Integrity (AMAN), National Chapter of Transparency International in Palestine, condemns the continued Israeli aggression targeting civilians in Gaza Strip. 

Today, we are particularly saddened with the tragedy of  Mr. Issam Younis, Board Member of AMAN, who lost his father Hassan Younis (75 years) and his stepmother Amal Younis (74 years).  The two martyrs were victims of the shelling that targeted several houses in the Tel Sultan neighborhood West of Rafah- southern Gaza Strip on Wednesday 20 August  2014.

The attack also left a large number of martyrs, some of whom are still under the rubble, and more than 30 civilians who were severely injured. As our heartfelt condolences go out to Mr. Issam Younis and his family during this difficult time, we appeal to the international community to intervene to stop this continued blatant aggression on the innocent civilians.

This recent tragedy is an addition to a series of grave human losses suffered.  At the earlier stage of this assault on Gaza, our colleague Rami Wahdan in Gaza lost several members of his family during an Israeli raid on the family home.
