Day 19: Palestinian death toll passes 1,000 | July 26, 2014

Thousands of Gaza residents who fled the violence streamed back to devastated border areas during Saturday’s 12-hour humanitarian truce to find large-scale destruction: fighting pulverized scores of homes, wreckage blocked roads and power cables dangled in the streets. In northern Beit Hanoun, even the hospital was badly damaged by shelling. Across Gaza, more than 130 bodies were pulled from the rubble on Saturday, officials said. In southern Gaza, 20 members of an extended family were killed before the start of the lull when a tank shell hit a building where they had sought refuge. (Sources: 1, 2, 3)

Protest in Afghanistan against the Taliban and the recent massacre of Hazaras in ghor

Details on the massacre:

On July 25, 2014, Taliban militants executed 15 civilians who were travelling in two vehicles. The militants made the vehicles pull over and ordered everyone out, after which they lined the passengers up on the side of the road and shot them one by one. One passenger managed to flee, but the rest were found dead with bullets in their heads and chests. Eleven men, a child and three women were killed. 

All of the victims were ethnic Hazaras, a minority group long persecuted by the Taliban. According to the Ghor Police Chief, the victims were killed by Taliban militants who had been freed from prison in Ghor. And according to Muhammad Nader Ehsani, a religious scholar participating in the Ghor demonstration on Saturday, every victim had over 100, 70 or 60 bullets rammed into their bodies.
