Thousands flee Gaza following intensified Israeli attacks

          I’m still monitoring the developments of the Israel-Gaza conflict. Thousands have now been forced to flee Gaza following the fiercest fighting of the 13-day war in Gaza which erupted on Sunday as Israel dramatically widened its ground offensive, sending tanks and troops into urban areas and causing thousands of panicked civilians to flee.

Images of the corpses of women and children lying in streets were posted on Facebook as hospitals were overwhelmed with the dead, injured and
those seeking sanctuary from the onslaught. It is now very obvious that the uneven and disproportionate number of civilian deaths could constitute a war crime committed by Israel. Only one Israeli has been killed so far but the number of Palestine civilians casualties have far exceedeed 300.

Despite Israel saying it had agreed to a two-hour ceasefire in the middle of the yesterday, requested by the Red Cross, to allow for the injured and dead to be
evacuated, shelling and gunfire continued. Israel blamed continued Hamas rocket fire for the breakdown of the humanitarian truce.
