53 Palestinians killed, over 450 injured in Gaza assault Published yesterday (updated) 10/07/2014 02:22

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Five Palestinians were killed in Israeli airstrikes on northern and southern Gaza Wednesday evening, bringing the total death toll in Gaza to 53, medical officials said.

An Israeli airstrike struck the Hamad family home in Beit Hanoun, killing Hani Saleh Hamad, 57, and Ibrahim Hamad, 20.

Five members of the same family were killed late Tuesday as Israeli warplanes bombed the home of senior Islamic Jihad militant Hafiz Hamad in the same area.

Another airstrike in Rafah killed Samia al-Arja, 65, and a unidentified child later died from injuries sustained in the strike.

The latest airstrikes bring the total death toll in Gaza to 53, according to the Gaza Ministry of Health. Over 450 Palestinians have been injured in the attacks.

Six women and nine children were among 22 Palestinians killed in Israeli strikes on Gaza on Wednesday, medics said.

Earlier, an Israeli airstrike on the al-Maghazi refugee camp killed a family of three, with another two children still reported missing under the rubble.

Amjad Hamdan, 23, was also killed in an airstrike outside of his home in Beit Hanoun. He is allegedly a member of Islamic Jihad's military wing.

Earlier, twelve Palestinians were killed in Israeli airstrikes on Beit Hanoun, Gaza City, al-Nuseirat refugee camp, al-Mughraqa village, and Beit Lahiya.

Two long-range rockets fired crashed into the sea off the northern port city of Haifa Wednesday, Israeli media reported, in an attack claimed by Hamas fighters.

Haifa lies 165 kilometers north of Gaza and, if confirmed, it would be the furthest a rocket fired from there has ever traveled.

Public radio said one struck near the seaside resort of Caesarea and another in the Carmel Beach region, both south of Haifa.

President Mahmoud Abbas accused Israel of committing "genocide" in Gaza.

They won’t even hardly notice that many.

Israel needs to try harder and make a real impact.

oh cry me a river, Abbas. How many rockets has Hamas fired at Israel in the last 7 days? You’re lucky Israel doesn’t get fed up to here and carpet bomb instead of try to surgically strike. Oh, and how about those Hammas people hiding in the basement of your hospitals and children’s schools, Abbas? eh? say what now?

For the sake of Clarity, all news services should begin being more explicit in their Israel-related news.

The list of muslim occupier (hamas) deaths by Israeli Defense Forces and the list of "human shields" used by the terrorist savages should be listed separately :

Barbarian Savages killed :.............. 7

Barbarian chosen human shields : 15

Hard to keep things clear, when written by criminals with an agenda.

When Isreal started selling Gaza Glass with slight radioactivity I will consider two state issue resolved.

The sooner the better. Iran would also crawl back under its own rock.

They really need to just line up a couple hundred bulldozers and just push the whole Gaza Strip into the Mediterranean.

they started it. But the numbers need to be in the thousands if it will make the Hamas people hurt. Let the Caliph have them-—he will know what to do with Hamas!

I agree and Israel needs to put an end to this. Then turn to Iran and their nuke site.
When Iran has their nuke Israel will be blown off the planet.

agreed. (even given Obama’s threat to “any nation” that dares to attack Iran’s nuclear bomb or ICBM factories...)

I doubt the Pali savages will get the Alamo connection.

The tanks’ loudspeakers should play, “Fiddler On The Roof” instead.

Well here are the sage words of the Dalai Lama of the Westbank, Mr. Abbas:

Abbas: Israel committing ‘genocide’ in Gaza

RAMALLAH, Palestinian Territories: Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas accused Wednesday Israel of committing “genocide” in Gaza during its military campaign which has so far killed 43 Palestinians.

“It’s genocide - the killing of entire families is genocide by Israel against our Palestinian people,” he told a crisis meeting of the Palestinian leadership in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.

“What’s happening now is a war against the Palestinian people as a whole and not against the (militant) factions.

“We know that Israel is not defending itself, it is defending settlements, its main project,” said Abbas.

“We are moving in several ways to stop the Israeli aggression and spilling of Palestinian blood, including talking to Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi and U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.”

Egypt urged Wednesday Israel and Hamas in Gaza to halt their spiraling conflict but played down hopes of a Cairo-mediated truce.

“There is no mediation, in the common sense of the word,” said Egyptian foreign ministry spokesman Badr Abdel-Atty.

“Egyptian diplomatic efforts are aimed at immediately stopping Israeli aggression and ending all mutual violence. (Egyptian) contacts have not yet achieved a result.”

Wednesday was the second day of Israel’s Operation Protective Edge.

Israel warplanes have so far hit 550 targets in Gaza, and Hamas militants have hit back with 165 rockets, some of which struck Jerusalem and Tel Aviv and as far away as Hadera, 116 kilometers to the north of the coastal enclave.

Palestinian fatalities include militants but also women and children. More than 370 people have been wounded.
