Today comes reports that Israel has bombed the only power plant in Gaza as well as water processing plants, adding to the list of war crimes since bombing essential infrastructure necessary for civilian life is prohibited by the rules of war. Radio and TV stations were also hit. A refugee camp and hospital were also bombed and eight children were killed in a park.
The Israeli Defense Forces deny that they were responsible for these bombings but eyewitnesses say otherwise.
Israel categorically denied its forces were responsible for the strike on the hospital or the camp, saying rockets launched by militants had misfired. But medical staff and other witnesses insisted missiles were fired at the hospital from an F-16 jet.
The UK’s Channel 4 sent Jon Snow to visit Gaza and on his return he described the horrors he saw as a result of the Israeli strikes and his anger that this carnage was being allowed to continue was almost palpable.
This video by the organization Freedom for Palestine has celebrities holding signs calling for the end of the killing.
