Gaza: The massacre continues
Civilian infrastructures are again targeted by Israeli military equipment in another night of violence. The latest structures obliterated by Israeli shells are another school and the oil deposit of the main power station.
While there are reports of misguided Israeli youths gathering together to sing "olé" chants about Gaza's massacred children, joking there are no more schools because the children are all dead, thousands of Israeli citizens took to the streets this weekend to protest against the Zionist massacre and the occupation. Some Orthodox Jews protesting against Zionism and carrying Palestinian flags were arrested. Many Jews regard the Zionists as being a threat to security.
As the Israeli Defence Force states that it needs one more week to destroy the tunnels used by HAMAS, a playground was strafed, killing several children. Both sides blame one another. The Israeli offensive Protective Edge was launched on July 7 and is the third major offensive against Gaza since 2005 when Israel ceased occupation of the territory but has since maintained a blockade.
In the recent fighting, many children have been encountered among the 1.031 Palestinian victims, with 6,000 injured. 43 Israeli soldiers and 3 civilians have died in the fighting.
