Days of Palestine – Gaza
Israeli occupation warplanes leveled to the ground Saturday a Palestinian home in the west of besieged Gaza city.
Our correspondent said that the Israeli occupation warplanes bombed a house belonging to the Shamlakh family, west of Gaza City, after targeting it with two reconnaissance missiles.
Medical sources confirmed that there were no injuries in the home’s attack.
The death toll in Gaza continued to climb on the second consecutive day of aerial bombardment of Gaza.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said the overall death toll since the latest onslaught began stood at least 12, including a child and a women, while the number of injuries reached 79.
Two million Palestinians live the Gaza Strip, which has been subjected to a punishing and crippling Israeli blockade for 12 years and repeated onslaughts that have heavily damaged much of the enclave’s infrastructure.

Gaza’s 2-million population remains under “remote control” occupation and a strict siege, which has destroyed the local economy, strangled Palestinian livelihoods, plunged them into unprecedented rates of unemployment and poverty, and cut off from the rest of the occupied Palestinian territories and the wider world.
Gaza remains occupied territory, having no control over its borders, territorial waters or airspace. Meanwhile, Israel upholds very few of its responsibilities as the occupying power, failing to provide for the basic needs of Palestinian civilians living in the territory.
Every two in three Palestinians in Gaza is a refugee from lands inside what is now Israel. That government forbids them from exercising their right to return as enshrined in international law because they are not Jews.
