On Thursday, a 13-year-old Palestinian boy in Gaza was killed by an Israeli military helicopter after being shot in the head while playing football with his friends.
In retaliation, Hamas fired rockets into Israel and today the Israel Defence Force launched ‘Operation Pillar of Cloud’ which began with the assassination by missile of the Hamas military commander, Ahmed al-Jabari, as he drove through Gaza City, followed by aerial attacks against targets in Gaza killing at least nine Palestinians, including civilians and three children.
Hamas warned that Israel 'had opened the gates of hell upon themselves' while The IDF Spokesman, Brig. Gen. Yoav Mordechai said: 'Were I a Hamas operative, junior or senior, I would now opt to shelter underground'.
And so it goes on and it is only going to get worse and the death toll will rise. So very, very depressing. The poor Palestinians do not deserve to have leaders like Hamas in charge or have to live next door to such a kill happy country like Israel.
