Stench of Death Hangs Over Gaza

by IOL (reposted)
GAZA CITY — With thick clouds of smoke billowing into the sky and dead bodies littering into the streets, a stench of death rose from the ruins of the Gaza Strip on Saturday, December 27.
"Where are my sons?" screamed Um Ibrahim as she ran hysterically looking for her little kids.

She lives near a security compound Israeli planes pounded to the ground on Saturday.

"I don't know what happened to them," cried the bereaved mother.

Her neighbor Um Abed fell unconscious when she saw her son among the dead in the attacks.

At least 206 Palestinians were killed in massive Israeli air strikes in the Gaza Strip on Saturday.

"The number of victims has reached 195 martyrs with more than 300 wounded, 120 of whom are critically hurt," said Moawiya Hassanein, the head of Gaza emergency services.

"The toll has gone up because of new Israeli raids and the discovery of several martyrs under the rubble."

TV footage showed bodies of people scattered on the ground after Israeli attacks destroyed several security compounds.
