Electronic Intifada (reposted)
Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) have continued their military operations in the Gaza Strip for the fifth consecutive day in a manner unprecedented for several months. They have intensified air attacks targeting civilian facilities and paramilitary sites mostly of Hamas and the Executive force of the Palestinian Ministry of Interior. IOF claim that these attacks have come in response to launching home-made rockets at Israeli towns. According to investigations conducted by PCHR, IOF have used excessive lethal force without any consideration to the principles of necessity and proportionality and in disregard to the lives of Palestinian civilians. Since Wednesday evening, 23 Palestinians, including nine civilians, have been killed and 86 others, including 31 civilians, have been wounded. In addition, five civilian facilities and several paramilitary sites have been destroyed and dozens of houses have been heavily damaged.
