Skip to comments.Gaza death toll tops 500, Israel kills tunnel infiltrators
Posted on 07/21/2014 9:24:19 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
The Palestinian death toll in an Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip rose above 500 on Monday as the army said it had killed 10 militants who tunnelled into Israel, while Gazan officials said an Israeli tank shelled a hospital, killing civilians.
A day after he was caught by an open microphone saying sarcastically that the Israeli assault was "a hell of a pinpoint operation", U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry flew to Cairo to try to secure an end to the two-week conflict.
Despite a U.N. Security Council appeal on Sunday for an immediate ceasefire in the worst bout of Palestinian-Israeli violence for more than five years, neither the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas nor Israel appeared ready to stop fighting.
Hamas, which killed 13 Israeli soldiers in Gaza on Sunday in the biggest one-day toll for eight years, continued to fire rockets deep into Israel and to dispatch infiltrators.
Israeli jets, tanks and artillery constantly pounded the densely-populated coastal strip, killing 28 members of a single family at the southern end.
At Al-Aqsa hospital in the central Gaza Strip, four people were killed and 70 wounded when an Israeli tank shell slammed into the third floor, housing operating theatres and an intensive care unit, the Health Ministry said.

Tank shell - or one of Hamas’ crappy rockets?
Of course these are innocent children working in a hospital. 500 fewer terrorists on the planet.
Pray America wakes up
Dead Gazans are always referred to as Palestinians, never terrorists or Hamas militants.
The Palestinian Terrorist death toll in an Israeli defensive operation in the Gaza Strip..."
There. Fixed it.
Senior IDF commander: Terrorists who infiltrated from Gaza wore IDF uniforms
OC Southern Command, Maj.-Gen. Sami Turgeman says infiltration in which ten terrorists were killed by IDF soldiers underlines threat posed to South; says IDF’s destruction of tunnels is disturbing Hamas work which took years.
Nearly entirely agitprop for Hamas.
The only solution is to destroy every tunnel in Gaza and everything that is on top of the tunnels, including houses, hospitals, businesses and mosques. Every terrorist and supporter of Hamas needs to be killed.
As an American taxpayer, I fully understand that Israel receives aid from the US government. So does the PA. All aid to the PA should be cut. We should encourage Israel to frugally utilize US aid. The methods to do this are simple. Cut the surgical strikes and the use of expensive smart weapons. Lay waste to Gaza in the most economically feasible method possible.
“U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry flew to Cairo to try to secure an end to the two-week conflict.”
This is just to much. Obama has snubbed Egypt after they ousted his buddies the Muslim Brotherhood. Now they want to enlist their help. Hahahaha, I don’t see that happening without some big concessions.
They’ll just have to find more human shields for their rockets
“Reuters is clearly pro-terrorist. The author of this article, Nidal Al-Mughrabi, should not be believed. It is as if this article was a Hamas press release. BTW, just a few minutes ago more rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel. Israel has been receiving rocket fire all afternoon.”
Unless the Israeli government comes up with a body count don’t believe Reuters regurgitation of PLO/Ham@ss propaganda
A few years back the PLO said 500 were killed in a town called Jenin. An investigation found less than 50 bodies.
I suspect civilians killed numbers include people who died of accidents, natural causes etc.
And you know Ham@ss dead were probably buried in they tunnels so it would be hard to verify the dead Terrorists.
No coincidence everyone wants a cease fire now that Obama’s brothers are getting their asses handed to them. FUBO! Go Israel don’t stop till they are all dead.
I keep hearing this idea that the war is not fair when more Palestinians die than Israelis. Where did this insane idea come from? This has never been part of any war effort taken on by the West. We were not too concerned whether more Japanese died than Americans in WWII.
In response more Nazarenes beheaded...
