In Gaza nearly 50 people including medical personnel, women and youth have already been killed in the past five days in Israel’s most recent offensive against Gaza with no end in sight.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert pledged Sunday to press ahead with Israel's offensive in northern Gaza, brushing off international calls to halt the aggression and the growing humanitarian crisis in Gaza – inadequate electricity and medicine and dwindling supplies of water, food and other staples.
