Every year on May 9th, the anniversary of the Nazi Germany’s surrender to the Soviet Union in 1945, the Communist Party of Israel (CPI) marks the defeat of the Nazi forces at the hands of the Red Army. This year, the annual commemoration of this historic event will be held by communists and Hadash activists on Saturday, May 11, in the Red Army Forest near Jerusalem.

A ceasefire between Israel and armed Palestinian groups in Gaza went into effect yesterday (Monday, May 6) at 4:30 a.m., ending two days of intense fighting. Beginning on Saturday, Hamas and other armed Palestinian groups fired rockets from Gaza at communities within Israel, and Israel once again dropped bombs on the Gaza Strip. The violence has already taken a toll in human life in both Gaza and Israel: 23 Palestinians and 4 Israelis were killed as a result of the bombardments on each side of the border. Scores of others were wounded.

PAME condemns the new, murderous raids of Israel against the Palestinian People.

The murderer-State of Israel went on a new escalation of its aggressiveness against Gaza and held dozens of raids the last days, which resulted in dozens killed.

A protest demonstration against Israel’s siege of the Gaza Strip will be held in Tel Aviv on the eve of 2019’s Eurovision Song Contest. The competition is scheduled to take place at Tel Aviv’s municipal convention center with two semi-finals on May 14th and 16th, and the finals on May 18th. The demonstration will be held Tuesday evening, May 14, starting at 7 pm, at the Habima Square in Central Tel Aviv.

The rate of unemployment in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) rose in 2018 to about 31% of the participants in the labor force compared to about 28% in 2017. In absolute terms, the number of unemployed individuals increased from 377,000 in 2017 to 426,000 in 2018, according to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS) in an announcement made to mark International Workers’ Day.

Thousands of Arabs and Jews gathered in Nazareth on Saturday morning, April 27, to take part in the city’s annual May Day march organized by Hadash and the Communist Party of Israel (CPI). While keeping with the tradition of commemorating International Workers’ Day, the demonstrators also marched against the occupation as well as Israel’s repression of Palestinians in Gaza and the racist and neo-liberal social and economic policies of Netanyahu’s far-right government. Together the participants called for justice, peace, and workers’ rights.

Hadash has demanded that the head of the Central Elections Committee, Supreme Court Justice Hanan Melcer, the Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, and the acting chief of Israel Police Motti Cohen, open a criminal investigation against the governing far-right Likud party over illegal activities it organized and conducted during the voting for the 21st Knesset earlier this month.

Back in December, Israel’s far-right government allocated approximately 1,200 dunams (300 acres) for the planning of a new neighborhood that would expand the settlement of Efrat towards Bethlehem, in the occupied Palestinian territories, an area considered particularly sensitive for political reasons. The new neighborhood is expected to enlarge the built-up area in the Gush Etzion settlement bloc up to the southern outskirts of Bethlehem, in a manner that would surround the Palestinian city with settlements.

In the last year alone, numerous events took place in Gaza, and in the region more broadly, that contributed to a significant deterioration in the economic and humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip.

Israel tightened restrictions on movement and imposed punitive closures; reconciliation attempts between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority faltered, causing the PA to carry out further economic sanctions and withdraw staff from Kerem Shalom and Rafah crossings; the United States cut funding to UNRWA and USAID; and hundreds were killed and thousands injured by Israeli forces in the Great March of Return protests, straining an already depleted health sector.
