Johannesburg – Ahmed Abbasi – the office head in Gaza of the South African independent humanitarian organisation, Gift of the Givers – has been killed in Gaza by Zionist Israel Defense Forces
Reports of the death of Abbasi emerged Thursday.
Abbasi, who was described as a “kind, gentle, warm human being” was directly targeted by the apartheid Israeli forces in Gaza while returning from morning prayer on Thursday with his brother.
They were both killed.
Abbasi, a father of three, had served the people of Gaza with distinction since 2013 being appointed as the head of the Gift of the Givers office in the region.
Gift of the Givers said Abbasi was responsible for implementing multiple projects including caring for orphans, widows, the elderly, and the ill.
“He delivered water through our desalination plants, distributed food parcels, provided hot meals, and upgraded damaged homes,” said Gift of the Givers in a statement.
“A few days ago he mentioned that it’s better to sit with his family of 34 in their own apartment and wait for their turn to die in dignity, as unarmed martyrs, rather than run from place to place as directed by the IDF.”
Gift of the Givers said Abbasi was a witness “to the lies and deception of the IDF” asking communities to move to safety and then bombing them on the way killing hundreds.
Gift of the Givers said: “We are grateful that he served us for forty consecutive days during this war where the cold-blooded murder, ethnic cleansing, and genocide of a defenseless civilian population, caught up in a ghetto, took place at the hands of the anti-Arab, anti-Palestinian, anti-Christian and anti-Muslim, inhumane Zionist Israeli murderers.”
Gift of the Givers said it fully supports the call by President Cyril Ramaphosa, to haul the terrorist from Tel Aviv, Benjamin Netanyahu, in front of the ICC for war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, and ethnic cleansing.
“We also fully support the motion in parliament today for the expulsion of the Israeli Ambassador with immediate effect and the severing of diplomatic ties with the Apartheid State of Israel,” said Gift of the Givers.
“We want to add that Israel should be held accountable to pay war reparation in the rebuilding of Gaza and compensate every single family they have decimated.
To Ahmed Abbasi, Gift of the Givers said: “To the Almighty we belong and to Him is our return. Rest in peace my friend, you have served with distinction. Justice will be done, God’s wrath will descend and Truth will be made manifest. Israel has already lost”.
Dr Imtiaz Sooliman, Gift of the Givers FounderGift of the Givers’ said the focus is to help and support innocent civilians and to attempt to ease their pain and suffering.
