Israel's Score Against Gaza Stands at 26 to 0Salem-News.com
No winners in this uneven match...
(GAZA) - Sounds like a game doesn't it? Too bad it is the farthest thing in life from it. Israel's attacks on Gaza have continued for days now, among dozens of injuries, 26 Palestinians are dead and Israel admits it killed four civilians.
No Israelis are dead, and we learn that in typical fashion, Israel has managed to ensure that 15% of its victims in this rounds of attacks on 'terrorists' are children under the age of 15.
Israel is raising the stakes in its game of global aggression and its terror campaign against Palestine strongly relies on an unspoken western media agreement, that only the stories Israel approves will air or be published. That keeps the advertising dollars rolling in, or stops them in their tracks with calls of 'antisemitism' if anyone dares criticize Israel's military butchery.
As we learn in this latest roundup of news headlines from the last 24-hours in Gaza, published on the Website for Ezzedeen AL-Qassam Brigades - Palestine, the military wing of the Islamic resistance movement Hamas, we learn that Israel's attacks are having adverse impacts on human beings locally, and impacting international perceptions.
We recently published a statement by Amnesty International calling for an end to the current hostilities. What happens remains to be seen.
Haneyya: Resistance is the people’s shield
Al Qassam website - Gaza- Palestinian premier in Gaza Ismail Haneyya has said that Palestinian resistance is the people’s “shield and sword” in face of the Israeli aggression.
He said in a terse statement on Monday night that efforts were ongoing to halt the aggression despite the difficult conditions due to the ongoing Israeli military attacks.
The PIC reporter said that Egypt was exerting efforts along with Palestinian factions to return to calm taking into consideration the factions’ demands for guarantees in return for halting retaliatory strikes.
Quds Brigades: Calm only at resistance’s conditions
Al Qassam website - The armed wing of Islamic Jihad movement, the Quds Brigades, has affirmed that calm would be only restored according to Palestinian resistance’s conditions.
Addressing a press conference in Gaza on Monday, the Brigades said that rockets would continue to fall on Israeli targets as long as the Israeli military escalation did not stop, reminding that Israel was the one that breeched the calm.
The armed wing asked those mediating for calm to address their mediation to Israel and not the resistance that was defending the people.
It lashed out at the Israeli occupation forces for blasting indiscriminate targets in Gaza killing civilians and schoolchildren and shelling houses.
Two more Palestinians killed in ongoing IOF aggression on Gaza
Al Qassam website - Gaza- Two more Palestinian citizens were killed on Monday night in the ongoing Israeli aerial and artillery attacks on the Gaza Strip.
Adham Abu Salmiya, the spokesman for emergency and ambulance services in the Strip, told the PIC reporter that an Israeli raid on Monday night targeted a group of citizens in Tufah suburb east of Gaza city.
He said that a citizen died instantly while another succumbed to his serious injuries later on Monday night.
Two other Palestinians were wounded in Israeli air raid on Sudaniya area to the north west of Gaza city also on Monday night, while no casualties were suffered in another raid on the tunnels area south of the Gaza Strip near Rafah city.
Meanwhile, locals said that 12 Israeli army tanks entered the northern Gaza Strip area at a late night hour on Monday through the Beit Hanun (Erez) crossing.
The number of Palestinian casualties since the Israeli aggression started on Friday rose to 25 killed and more than 80 wounded.
Egyptian parliament demands expulsion of Israeli ambassador
Al Qassam website - Cairo- The Egyptian peoples assembly passed a resolution on Monday with a majority of votes asking the government to expel the Israeli ambassador from Cairo.
The parliamentary Arab affairs committee had recommended the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador, recalling the Egyptian ambassador from Tel Aviv, cancelation of the Camp David treaty, and halting gas exports to Israel in retaliation to the Israeli aggression on Gaza Strip and Judaization of occupied Jerusalem.
Mohammed Idris, the head of the committee, said that an agreement was reached with the assembly’s presidium on sending a parliamentary delegation to Gaza the soonest to break the siege on the coastal enclave.
He said that Palestine is Egypt’s strategic and advanced defense line, adding that Israel would remain the topmost enemy to Egypt and the Arab Nation.
