INTRODUCTION:

The purpose of this page is to collect information about various massacres that have occurred through time.  Perhaps the most appropriate place to start is by defining what exactly constitutes a massacre.

MASSACRE:

: the act or an instance of killing a number of usually helpless or unresisting human beings under circumstances of atrocity or cruelty

Merriam-Webster  (WWW.MERRIAM-WEBSTER.COM)  (2014/0817)

An indiscriminate and brutal slaughter of people:

Oxford Dictionaries  (WWW.OXFORDDICTIONARIES.COM)  (2014/0817)

the unnecessary, indiscriminate killing of a large number of human beings or animals, as in barbarous warfare or persecution or for revenge or plunder.

Dictionary.com  (WWW.DICTIONARY.COM)  (2014/0817)

For this presentation, I will use the following definition:

massacre:

: the act or instance of unnecessary killing of unarmed, defenseless, or unresistant civilians and/or prisoner combatants.

HAIFA OIL REFINERY MASSACRE: (December 30, 1947)

Haifa Oil Refinery massacre  (HTTPS://EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG)

The Haifa Oil Refinery massacre took place on 30 December 1947.  After members of the Zionist paramilitary organisation, the Irgun, threw a number of grenades at a crowd of 100 Arab day-labourers who had gathered outside the main gate of the then British-owned Haifa Oil Refinery looking for work, six people were killed and 42 wounded.  Minutes after this attack, Arab refinery workers and others began attacking the Jewish refinery workers, resulting in 39 deaths and 49 injuries, before British army and Palestine Police units arrived to put an end to the violence.  Haganah later retaliated by attacking two nearby Arab villages in what became known as the Balad al-Shaykh Massacre, where between 21 and 70 Arabs were killed, while skirmishes followed in Haifa.

QIBYA MASSACRE (October 13, 1953):

"The Qibya massacre, also known as the Qibya incident, was a reprisal operation that occurred in October 1953 when Israeli troops under Ariel Sharon attacked the village of Qibya in the West Bank. At least sixty-nine Palestinian Arab villagers, two-thirds of them women and children, were killed. Forty-five houses, a school, and a mosque were destroyed. The attack followed cross-border raids from the Jordanian occupied West Bank in which Israeli civilians were killed. The act was condemned by the U.S. State Department, the UN Security Council, and by Jewish communities worldwide. The State Department described the raid as "shocking", and used the occasion to confirm publicly that economic aid to Israel had been suspended previously, for other non-compliance regarding the 1949 Armistice Agreements. The operation was codenamed Operation Shoshana by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). It was carried out by two Israeli units at night: a paratroop company and Unit 101, a special forces unit of the IDF.
