Four deaths and 38 injuries resulted from attacking a football playground in al-Shoja'ila neighborhood east of Gaza City. Israel willfully struck a non-military target. Civilians alone were harmed.

On November 8, Israel killed a young Palestinian child. He was playing football with friends when he was shot in the abdomen and died. Southern Gaza's Abassan village was targeted. Indiscriminate live fire followed.

Israeli ground and air attacks continued into Monday. Targets included a water tank, electricity distribution facility, brick and metalworking workshops, a concrete factory, and agricultural store. All were civilian sites. Crimes of war and against humanity were committed. It's standard Israeli policy.

Fourth Geneva obligates High Contracting Parties to protect civilians in time of war and hold those responsible accountable. Throughout its history, Israel's gotten away with murder. It wages aggressive war on Palestine with impunity.

When Hamas and other resistance groups respond, it's called terrorism. Conflicting reports disagree on what Israel plans. The International Middle East Media Center ( IMEMC ) cited a Haaretz report. It said Netanyahu is preparing public opinion perhaps for Cast Lead 2.0.

He'll also launch an international propaganda offensive. He plans "to conduct a large ground offensive against the coastal region." He needs Israeli and international community support.

On November 12, Israel National News headlined "PM: Israel Ready to Fight for Defense of the South," saying:

Official propaganda manipulates public opinion by claiming terrorists threaten Israelis. Netanyahu said "the whole world understands that this is not acceptable."
