More On Gaza
January 16, 2009
“The Ministry of Health in Gaza said 1,013 people have died in the conflict which started 19 days ago.
More than 300 of the dead are said to be children, 76 are women and more than 4,500 people have been injured, of whom 1,600 are children and 678 are women.
Thirteen Israelis have been killed, including three civilians and one soldier from rockets fired from Gaza and nine soldiers killed in fighting in Gaza.
It is impossible to independently confirm casualty figures as Israel has refused to allow international journalists to enter Gaza.”
Meanwhile, Hizbollah continues to fire rockets into northern Israel, and bin Laden has released a tape calling for holy war in support of Gazans.
I don’t think this is working out quite as well as Israel had hoped.
