3,235 Palestinians martyred since the start of the second intifada

The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) announced that 3,235 Palestinians have been martyred since the start of the Al-Aqsa or second intifada, which began in September 2000

A report issued by the centre stated that 141 women, 25 medics, 10 journalists, 6 of whom were foreigners, and 764 children, have been murdered.


In addition to 614 who were the victims of targeted assassinations, 412 of whom were 'wanted' and 212 who were innocent civilians.


The report added that 11,030 Palestinians were injured in the Gaza Strip and 13,100 in the West Bank.


11,000 Palestinians have been taken captive.


The lands razed by Zionist regime's forces amount to 36,200 dunams (36,200,000m²) in the Gaza Strip and 58% of Palestinian land in the West Bank has been seized for the construction of the colonial wall.


2,914 houses were completely and 2,838 partially demolished in the Gaza Strip.


The report said that Palestinians are living in the worst conditions ever with regards to internal chaos, in which 160 Palestinians were martyred and 835 injured in the first four months of 2007.


The PCHR urged Arabs to refuse peace with Zionist regime unless it recognises the Palestinian right to build its own state and guarantees the right of return of the refugees.
