Electronic Intifada (reposted)
Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) have continued their military operations in the Gaza Strip for the sixth consecutive day. In the past 24 hours, 13 Palestinians, have been killed and 12 others, including seven children, have been wounded. On Sunday, 20 May 2007, eight Palestinians, including seven ones from one family, were killed and three others were wounded when an IOF air raid targeted a meeting hall belonging to the family in Gaza City. In addition, a man and his five children, including a disabled one, were wounded when IOF shelled their house in the northern Gaza Strip. In the early morning of Monday, 21 May 2007, a child was killed and three were wounded when an IOF air raid targeted a workshop in Gaza City. On Monday afternoon, four members of the al-Quds Brigades (the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad) were killed when an IOF warplane attacked the car in which they were traveling. Since the beginning of this latest IOF offensive on the Gaza Strip, 36 Palestinians, including 18 civilians, have been killed and 97 others, including 44 civilians, have been wounded. PCHR is deeply concerned over the policy of retaliation practiced against Palestinian civilians, which threatens their lives, especially as IOF have continued to attack targets in civilian populated areas.
