Israelis Murder 400 Palestinians, Injuring More Than Two Thousands in 4 Days of Air Attacks
Israeli air strikes in Gaza continued for a third day on Monday, killing more than 300 Palestinians and injuring another 700 in what has been described as one of “the bloodiest massacres of Palestinians in 60 years by the Jewish state.”

A Planned Genocide
Late Sunday, Israeli warplanes targeted the local Islamic University killing a dozen students. At least seven of the dead were students at a UN vocational college for Palestinian refugees. More than 20 students were injured in the air attack.
Israeli government reportedly approved the call-up of 6,500 reservists . “Israel will continue until we have a new security environment in the south, when the population there will no longer live in terror and in fear of constant rocket barrages,” a govt spokesman said.
Earlier on Sunday, Israeli planes bombed supply tunnels in the southern Gaza Strip used by Palestinians to smuggle food, water and medicine, past the Israeli blockade of the Gaza strip.
The Israeli blockade was imposed after the Hamas movement took control of Gaza in June 2007. The territory has been closed to virtually all supplies including food, water, fuel and medicine. The Palestinians in Gaza Strip territory have had to deal with food and water shortages shortages as well as power cuts. The essential utilities have been crippled.
In January 2008, Israeli supreme court [a court which has no legitimacy as it operates in territories occupied by foreign forces] said that Gaza was ruled by “a murderous terror group”, but stated Israel still had an obligation under international law to avoid “deliberately” harming Palestinian civilians.
The court also had the audacity to rule that the reduction in fuel and electricity provided to the Gaza Strip was “sufficient to answer the vital humanitarian needs of the strip for the time being.”
Day Four of Gaza Massacre (Round 2008)
Israelis planes have now bombed the life out of about 400 people, injuring up to 2,000 Palestinians held in the Gaza Strip Concentration Camp. Meanwhile a Gibraltar-register boat, Dignity, carrying medical supplies and other humanitarian aid, foreign doctors and surgeons on its way to Gaza was rammed by a an Israeli patrol boat in international waters.

Gaza Strip: The World’s Largest Concentration Camp
Gaza Strip is a coastal strip of land along the Mediterranean Sea. It borders Egypt on the south-west and Israel on the north and east. It is about 41 kilometers long, and between 6 and 12 kilometers wide, with a total area of 360 square kilometers, which makes it the world’s largest concentration camp. The area is not recognized internationally as part of any sovereign country but is claimed by the Palestinian National Authority as part of the Palestinian territories. Since the June 2007 battle of Gaza, actual control of the area is in the hands of the Hamas de facto government.
It has about 1.48 million Palestinian Arab (or Gazan) residents, that is a population density of about 4,118 people per square kilometer [before the ongoing massacre.]
