Israeli soldiers used rubber bullets and tear gas against nonviolent West Bank protesters.

Air strikes on central Gaza kills infant. Bombing killed six other children and five women.

Israel's Iron Dome success rate exaggerated. Missile defense never works as claimed. Most Gazan rockets and missiles fired land.

Reports differ on what's next. On November 18, the Jerusalem Post  headlined "Netanyahu: IDF prepared to widen Gaza operations," saying:

Over 1,000 sites were bombed. On Sunday, Netanyahu told cabinet members that Israel "is prepared to expand its operations in Gaza." Ministers discussed a possible ground operation.

On November 18, YNet News headlined "Report: Netanyahu told Obama Israel not planning ground op," saying:

On Friday, both leaders spoke. Netanyahu told Obama no ground operation is planned at this time. However, things will change if Hamas escalates rocket fire or causes significant casualties.

US ambassador Michael Oren said:

If Hamas "keep(s) shooting at 5.5 million Israelis at the current rate, we will have no choice but to use all necessary and legitimate means to defend our citizens and that includes possible ground action."

On Friday, Physicians for Human Rights-Israel ( PHR-I ) "began receiving worrisome and severe reports regarding the obstruction of the activity of emergency and rescue teams."

Gaza Red Crescent director of emergency and rescue services, Dr. Bashar Murad, said:

"Although there is no direct harm to the emergency services and centers, the proximity to the bombings".causes great harm." 

"Heavy shrapnels sharp edged fragments".hit the center. With no advanced warnings, there is no possibility of evacuation prior to the bombing." 

"The destruction of infrastructure".causes difficulties and delays reaching the wounded. In some cases, the blocked roads".do not allow clear transfer of ambulances."

 

Paramedics have to carry wounded victims and walk. Doing so endangers their lives. Time is crucial. Severe wounds need immediate treatment.
