GUEST,David BS: Gaza Strip 28/9 June 2006 (1253* d) RE: BS: Gaza Strip 28/9 June 2006 13 Jul 06


COLLECTIVE PUNISHMENT IS A WAR CRIME!
Israel is intensifying its collective punishment of the Palestinian people in Gaza ,one of the most densely populated areas on earth.At least 51 Palestinians have been killed and around 150 wounded ,the majority of them civilians, mostly children,since Israel launched its attack.
At Al Awada hospital in Jabalia refugee camp 5 children have been brought in shot in the chest or abdomen.These children are aged between 12 and 15.
In the east of Gaza an Israeli shell killed a mother and two of her children..
According to a Palestinian network coordinator ,"Since the 8th June over 60 Palestinians have been killed and 200 wounded ."
These include men,women and children.
Gaza is under siege and warfare is being waged indiscriminately by Israel.The power plant has been blown up and there is a severe shortage of drinking water.Much of the water that is available is contaminated and dirty water has also polluted agricultural land.Raw sewage is making life almost impossible for the residents of Gaza.
Hospitals are working by emergency generators only and many workers have not been paid for a month or more.
Merkava tanks have penetrated into Gaza and homes and other buildings have been shelled and wrecked.Already before the latest attack some 70% of Gazans were living below the poverty line .The attack by Israel only adds to the prevailing humanitarian crisis.
Sonic booms are terrifying the children of Gaza who are already suffering from stress and malnutrition. Bedwetting problems are commonplace.
Gaza is a prison with freedom of movement denied. Residents have been used as human shields as bulldozers have demolished homes and uprooted gardens.
