Martyred leader of the Jihadi Chicken Brigade targeted by Israel in Gaza, Palestine.
This story broke last week. Al Mezan Centre for Human Rights: Israeli Aircraft Attack Poultry and Cattle Farm:
At approximately 1:10 am on Sunday 3 June 2012, Israeli aircraft fired two missiles at a poultry and cattle farm and a water well located about 1,500 meters southwest of the Bedouin village northwest of Beit Lahiya in North Gaza district. As a result, the farm; the well—which supplies water to 50 dunams of agricultural land—and the building housing it; a room made of sheet metal, about 470 square meters in area; a storage room of ten square meters; and an electric generator, were completely destroyed; and 29 sheep and 4,300 chicks were killed. No casualties or injuries were reported.
According to Al Mezan’s field investigations, the farms belong to Faraj Hussein Abu Rabee’, 42. The farm is located in an agricultural area. The attack was massive and sudden and terrified women and children in the area.
The gruesome attack generated some creativity on twitter:
Disclaimer: Our heartfelt sympathies to Faraj Hussein Abu Rabee for the loss of his farm and the destruction of his poultry. We also mean no disrespect to the seriousness of what the Goldstone Report described as a war crime, the 30,000 chickens purposely decimated during the ’08-’09 Gaza onslaught.
