Israel is keeping up a steady stream of attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip, killing 11 more Palestinians in its latest airstrikes.
The air raids targeted four different locations in the coastal enclave. Officials say two of the victims were killed when a strike hit a facility for the disabled in Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza. Israel has pounded more than one thousand targets in the impoverished region since Tuesday. 119 Palestinians, most of them women and children, have lost their lives. And about 800 others have been injured. Tel Aviv has now massed thousands of troops along the Gaza border in preparation for a possible ground incursion.
Friday was the fourth day of the Israeli air offensive against the Gaza Strip and the number of dead and injured continues to rise. More than 100 people have been killed in the Palestinian territory so far as a result of the Israeli military’s Operation Protective Edge. The Israeli army says Hamas, which governs Gaza, is using civilians as “human shields”. Osama Hamdan, Hamas spokesman in Beirut, Lebanon, denied the charge in an interview to Al Jazeera’s Laura Kyle.
