Israel-Gaza Missile Raids

In Gaza, two sisters were killed in an air raid as they were takng out the trash near their home in Beit Hanoun.

An Israeli woman tripped after she bolted out from her car. She was killed then by a missile launched by Gaza.

From the looks of it there’s no way of ending this battle between these two sides which both of them refused any notion of a ceasefire soon.

The United Nations has called for an immediate truce but to no avail when Israeli Minister, Meir Sheetrit, refused to do so with Hamas until the Threat of rocket fire had been removed.

Medical officials put Palestinian casualties since Saturday at 348 dead with more than 800 wounded. A United Nations agency said at least 62 of the dead were civilians. In all, four Israelis have been killed since the operation began.

Israeli warplanes pressed on for the fourth day with attacks on Hamas targets, killing 12 Palestinians. They included sisters aged 4 and 11.

Israel also kept schools closed within a radius of about 30 km (18 miles) from the Gaza border, citing concerns about further rocket fire. Residents were told to remain indoors and on the alert for alarms heralding incoming rockets.

Most Gazans in the territory of 1.5 million people, one of the most densely populated on earth, have stayed home, in rooms away from windows that could shatter in blasts from air strikes on Hamas facilities.

Israel declared areas around the Gaza Strip a ‘closed military zone’, citing the risk from Palestinian rockets, and ordered out journalists observing a build-up of armored forces.

Excluding the press could help Israel conceal preparations for a ground incursion.

Hamas seized control of the Gaza Strip from Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction in fighting in June 2007. It has rejected international demands to recognize Israel, renounce violence and accept existing interim peace deals.

P/S: Note in ‘marking’ your territory; DO NOT take a piss at a pole (it’s unhygenic), DO NOT barge into other people’s room saying ‘I want your room, get out!’, when clearly the room’s owner is bigger or older than you (it’s called ‘respect’). Try practising sharing and saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’. When the owner of the place clearly said, ‘get out’, understand it and LEAVE them alone!. . . Just my two cents.
