GAZA’S ANGELS ARE MURDERED WITH COLD BLOOD .
“”” Five members of a family have been killed after a tank shell fired by Israeli forces landed in a house in an eastern neighborhood of Gaza City.
The incident happened on Monday morning amid Israel’s ongoing incursion into the Gaza Strip, Ashraf Shannon, Press TV correspondent in Gaza says.
The victims of the Israeli attack included four children.
Last night an Israeli air raid killed nine members of the same family in a costal refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.
The latest death brings the number of Palestinians killed in Israel’s ground incursion to 85 among them 33 children.
Israel started a ground incursion into the coastal strip late Saturday after a week of heavy bombardment and artillery shelling.””” [PressTV]
“””” Three hours after the Israel Defense Forces began their ground operation in the Gaza Strip, at about 10:30 P.M. Saturday night, a shell or missile hit the house owned by Hussein al-Awaidi and his brothers. Twenty-one people live in the isolated house, located in an agricultural area east of Gaza City’s Zeitoun neighborhood. Five of them were wounded in the strike: Two women in their eighties (his mother and aunt), his 14-year-old son, his 13-year-old niece and his 10-year-old nephew.
Twenty hours later, the wounded were still bleeding in a shed in the courtyard of the house. There was no electricity, no heat, no water. Their relatives were with them, but every time they tried to leave the courtyard to fetch water, the army shot at them.(…) “”” [uruknet]
““”(…) While firing rockets at civilians is a crime so, too, is the Israeli blockade of Gaza, which is an egregious violation of international law and the Geneva Conventions.
According to the UN, most of Gaza’s 1.5 million Palestinian refugees subsist near the edge of hunger. Seventy per cent of Palestinian children in Gaza suffer from severe malnutrition and psychological trauma.
Medical facilities are critically short of doctors, personnel, equipment, and drugs. Gaza has quite literally become a human garbage dump for all the Arabs that Israel does not want.
Gaza is one of the world’s most-densely populated places, a vast outdoor prison camp filled with desperate people. In the past, they threw stones at their Israeli occupiers; now they launch home-made rockets. Call it a prison riot, writ large.(…)Though the torment of Gaza is seen across the horrified Muslim world as a modern version of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising by Jews against the Nazis during World War Two, Western governments still appear bent on taking no action.
Though Israel’s use of American weapons against Gaza violates the US Arms Export Control and Foreign Assistance Acts, the docile US Congress will remain mute. “”” [ Eric S. Margolis, Al JAzeera]
