Israel escalates Gaza offensive, casualties mount



Published: Thu, July 10, 2014 @ 3:40 p.m.

JERUSALEM (AP) - Israel dramatically escalated its aerial assault targeting hundreds of Hamas sites in the Gaza Strip today as Palestinians reported the strikes also hit a home and a beachside cafe, raising the total number of people killed in this week's offensive to at least 85. Israel's missile defense system also once again intercepted rockets fired by Gaza militants at the country's two largest cities, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. The Israeli military said it had struck a total of some 500 targets throughout the day, focusing on underground tunnel networks and rocket launching sites. In all, the military said it has hit some 860 sites since the operation started Tuesday.

Gaza, the world's largest open-air prison, is rapidly becoming a mass graveyard in this latest slaughter of innocents. As in the Israeli attacks on Gaza in 2006, 2008/09 and 2012, the vast majority of victims of these war crimes are civilians, including whole families. The 90+ Palestinians killed (which include infants and toddlers) and more than 550 wounded in the nearly 800 Israeli strikes against this imprisoned population, are more than statistics. Their sacrificed blood makes the Holy Land holier; the holy month of Ramadan more meaningful; and the resistance against tyranny and foreign occupation stronger than ever. Viva Palestina!
