Israeli Terror Attacks: Day 7
Israeli cold-blooded murder continues.
by Stephen Lendman
When will Israel decide enough's enough? When will enough dead Palestinian men, women, children, infants, and elderly satisfy Netanyahu's blood lust? He'll have to explain.
Death and injury totals keep rising. Perhaps hundreds already perished. Those injured approach 1,000. Many are in serious condition. Some won't survive. Others are maimed for life.
Israel's aggression reflects ruthless state terror. It bears repeating. Civilians are deliberately targeted. It's longstanding Israeli policy. They're treated like combatants. So are women and children.
Rogue governments operate this way. They're contemptuous of humanity. They perpetuate human suffering. They mock fundamental rights they should respect. They kill with impunity. They don't give a damn who lives or dies.
Haaretz columnist Amira Hass once lived in Gaza. She knows firsthand what goes on. She said Gaza's dead include "farmers, water sellers and the girl next door."
Most Gazans killed are civilians. Only six of the 34 Palestinians killed in the past two days were fighters.
Around 80% of Al Shifa Hospital victims are children. On November 19, "the IAF fired warning rockets at an empty home in the Zeitun neighborhood."
"The building exploded about a minute later, trapping members of the neighboring Abu Zur family inside their home and killing a 5-year-old boy, Mahmad Iyad Fuad Abu Zur, along with two men and a woman: Ahad Hamdi Samil Katati, 38; Sahar Fadi Assad Abu Zur, 21; and Nasma Halmi Salam Abu Zur, also 21."
"Twenty-eight family members were injured in the attack and 20 homes were partly damaged."
Hundreds of buildings have been destroyed or damaged. Four Gazan farmers were killed.
"On Sunday afternoon, the IAF fired two missiles on a vehicle distributing purified water to the Beit Lahia area, killing the driver, Suhail Ashur Mohammed Hamada, 42, and his 10-year-old son."
"An estimated 95 percent of the water in Gaza is not fit to drink, forcing residents to buy purified water or receive it from their municipality."
A 10-year old boy and his father were killed. They "were trying to fix a pipe on the roof of their home"."
