13 February 2023 {Main source of statistics: Palestinian Monitoring Group (PMG): NB:The period covered by this newsletter is taken from the PMG’s 24-hour sitrep ending 8am the day after the above date.}

We shall always do our best to verify the accuracy of all items in these IOP newsletters/reports wherever possible [e.g. we often suspect that names of people and places that we see in the PMG sitreps could be typos; also the translation into English seems rather odd ~ but since we, sadly, do not speak Arabic, we have no alternative but to copy and paste these names from the PMG sitreps!] – please forgive us for any errors or omissions – Leslie and Marian.

  1. Absolutely critical stuff. It’s very easy to concentrate on the gratuitous murders of women, children, any human being they can lay their hands on that the zionists love to do for fun, but their kidnappings and torture of Palestinian human beings are far more common and just as inexcusable.
