Courage to Refuse Resumes Activity Joined other NGOs in a Protest Against The Killing of 7 Civilians in Gaza 10/06/2006
 
 

250 Israeli protesters demonstrated today in front of IDF Chief of Staffs house in north Tel Aviv. The demonstration took place after a blast, presumably caused by Israeli artillery, resulted with the tragic death of 7 family members picnicking on Gaza beach.

The demonstration called for the halt of Israeli policy of targeted killings and preventive shelling, which is not only illegal, but also often results with the death of innocent Palestinian civilians. This policy, argued the protesters, also contributes to the escalation of the violence in the region and eventually endangers Israeli civilians.

This Israeli contribution to the escalation of violence and the apparent preferring of such illegal military moves over the pre-elections promised negotiations, urged CTR to resume its activity. The movement intends to carry out further activities in order to prevent IDFs illegal actions and save both civilians and IDFs soldiers lives.

The presence of Prime Minister Ehud Olmerts dahughter, Dana Olmert, attracted the Israeli medias attention and brought the demonstration to the presss headlines.
