Israel Bombs Gaza's 3rd Largest Medical Storage Supply Building

How can the IDF get away with it?

(GAZA) - Israeli Defence Forces attacked the third-largest medical supplies storage building in Gaza tonight, leaving a vitally important facility in raging flames and rubble.

As you will see in the video, a man who worked at the medical supply group, said they were recently visited by the Minister of Health, and he was shocked as others were who had a connection to the supply building, but weren't inside when the deadly explosives shattered the building's structure.

Israel maintains an illegal military siege of Gaza and surrounds this historic Biblical area with guard towers manned by snipers as Tim King reported last week when reviewing the movie that tells the story of The Shooting of Tom Hurndall on Salem-News.com.

But beyond that, Israel has the ability to randomly illegally attack and kill Palestinians with larger weapons, sometimes fired from fast moving F-16 jet fighters supplied by the USA, and also from Israeli ground units and tanks.

Israel uses DU (Depleted Uranium) in their weaponry, and we know these shells diminish sperm counts. They also use illegal white phosphorus that leave targets burning as well, as the people inside the target areas.

This is embarassing and no one is doing anything against israel forces. I cant believe in 21st century stuff like this still happens.

Where is the proof? How do you know anything about who did this terrible act?

Editor: If you know the slightest thing about Gaza or Israel you would know that there is no other entity that would do this.  Their F-16's are still in the air over Ken while he was on site.  Who do you think did it?  Are you implying the US did it?  Well, the F-16 factor would make you partly right.  But you can conclude that the only enemy of Gaza and the only entity interested in destroying their medical supplies would indeed be the Israeli regime.

During Operation Cast Lead "Washington provided F-16 fighter planes, Apache helicopters, tactical missiles, and a wide array of munitions, including white phosphorus and DIME! The weapons required for the Israeli assault was decided upon in June 2008, and the transfer of 1,000 bunker-buster GPS-guided Small Diameter Guided Bomb Units 39 (GBU-39) were approved by Congress in September. The GBU 39 bombs were delivered to Israel in November (prior to any claims of Hamas cease fire violation!) for use in the initial air raids on Gaza. [1]

In a 71-page report released March 25, 2009, by Human Rights Watch, Israel’s repeated firing of US-made white phosphorus shells over densely populated areas of Gaza was indiscriminate and is evidence of war crimes.

"Rain of Fire: Israel’s Unlawful Use of White Phosphorus in Gaza," provided eye witness accounts of the devastating effects that white phosphorus munitions had on civilians and civilian property in Gaza.

"Human Rights Watch researchers found spent shells, canister liners, and dozens of burnt felt wedges containing white phosphorus on city streets, apartment roofs, residential courtyards, and at a United Nations school in Gaza immediately after hostilities ended in January.

"Militaries officially use white phosphorus to obscure their operations on the ground by creating thick smoke. It has also been used as an incendiary weapon, though such use constitutes a war crime.

“In Gaza, the Israeli military didn’t just use white phosphorus in open areas as a screen for its troops," said Fred Abrahams, senior emergencies researcher at Human Rights Watch and co-author of the report. "It fired white phosphorus repeatedly over densely populated areas, even when its troops weren't in the area and safer smoke shells were available. As a result, civilians needlessly suffered and died."

You may criticize Ken's style, and his tattoo, but this is evidence either way, the video camera is today's most dangerous weapon, and thanks to Ken for using it. no thanks to Israel for bombing whatever was here in Gaza, what lowly cowards, fools...

Thanks for witnessing to both Ken and Salem-News. Too bad the Israelis are so sick that they would do this because it breeds hatred. It is harder and harder to have respect let alone love for any of the f-ing chosen people. If I were an Israeli, I would have to leave the country so as not to be a perpetrator.


M. Dennis Paul, Ph.D. February 9, 2011 1:35 am (Pacific time)

This is devastating. With the Rafah area now closed and medical supplies already severely scarce Israel is literally making it impossible for Gazan's to be treated. My fear is this is an intentional prelude to a large scale attack. It would not come as a surprise to hear that power and water are hit next.
