While some observers called for all these cases to be documented and kept in an organized archive so that they could be approved as evidence before the International Court of Justice and Israel could be held accountable for its crimes.
Others said the Israeli occupation forces are documenting their criminal operations in Gaza without restraint or fear of accountability, accusing the West of continuing its military and political operations since the beginning of the Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip 122 days ago.

As one of them said.
It's a great photo that captures the unwavering spirit of Palestinian determination. The irony is that the one who took it was the executioner himself. He wanted to break and insult the victim, but then he was insulted by the victim's appearance, his nose, and his ego.
This image must be disseminated on a wide scale, we must embed it in people's memory and embed it in the collective consciousness of the world. pic.twitter.com/EOxmDbmAyB
