An Israeli Jewish journalist said that Israel hid 300,000 documents about its crimes against Palestinians that thousands of them date back to the year 1800.
Asaf Shalev told +972 Magazine that Israel’s declassified state archives include documents that are more than a century old; he added that 300,000 documents that preceded Israel’s creation remained classified.
The 300,000 classified files had been kept secret until now, and one-fifth of the files are considered sensitive even by Israel, were excluded from disclosure, according to the report.
The report also stated that “there were many people who were concerned” about the opening of this catalogue.
Among the documents are the archives of Deir Yassin and Kfar Qasim, the two most notorious massacres carried out by Israeli forces.
Shalev also indicated that the oldest of these documents, which was still classified, entitled “Parker Report” dates back to 1821. There are also 125 classified documents dating from the 19th century and some 2,000 documents prior to Nakba Day (catastrophe) on 14 May 1948.
Since 1948, when Israel was illegally founded in the occupied territories of Palestine, this regime has been repressing Palestinians for 70 years, killing them, imprisoning them, expelling them from their homes and expanding their colonies, declared illegal by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).
Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people have provoked criticism and condemnation all over the world. The former director of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR), Zeid Raad al-Husein, had warned the Tel Aviv regime of the excessive use of force in the repression of Palestinian demonstrations.
According to a recent report by the International Association for the Defense of Children, the Israeli regime’s war forces have killed at least 2,000 Palestinian children since the beginning of the Second Intifada of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) in September 2000.
