Gaza Homes, TV Station Bombed by Israel as Hope for a Ceasefire Fades

Israeli air raids and shelling kill five Palestinians, while an Israeli man dies after being hit by a rocket.

sraeli jets have pounded the Gaza Strip, killing at least five Palestinians a day after a deadly covert Israeli operation in the besieged enclave drew rocket fire from the Hamas-controlled territory.

At least seven Palestinians, including a Hamas military commander, were killed in the Sunday night raid near the Khan Younis city raising fears of another war.

An Israeli soldier was killed during the botched operation in the enclave, which has been under an Israeli land, air and sea blockade since 2007.

Israeli artillery units also shelled positions across the densely populated enclave, including the Hamas-run Al-Aqsa TV station headquarters.

Israel said its Iron Dome defence system intercepted many of the 300 missiles fired by the Palestinians.

Since 2008, Israel has launched three major assaults on Gaza that have heavily damaged the Strip's infrastructure and sources of livelihood.

Violence has flared up frequently on the frontier since Palestinians in the Gaza Strip began weekly protests along the fence with Israel on March 30, demanding their right to return to the homes their families were expelled from 70 years ago.

More than 200 Palestinians have been killed and thousands more wounded by Israeli troops deployed along the other side of the fence since the Great March of Return demonstrations began on March 30.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Check out the video of the bombing of the TV station, the explosion was too big for an artillery shell hitting a normal building--Hamas had munitions stored there. And the story doesn't even mention the Israeli civilian casualties from the rocket fire, or the one fatality--a Palestinian from the West Bank who was working in Israel. And this story treats all the Israeli incursions as if they were unprovoked instead of responses to Hamas rocket fire. The Israelis aren't innocents in this, but neither are Hamas et al as reports like this pretend.

Gee Salburger, what a shock. Any other atrocities you want to excuse while you're here?

Ralph Nader, on his radio show (and on YouTube), hosted a great interview of Phil Donahue, fired from MSDNC because he was against the Iraq War. ( MSDNC's Chris Matthews called him a traitor.)

It's a fascinating and far-ranging conversation, and one topic they discuss is Israel's barbarous conduct. Both agree that there are multiple high-ranking Israeli (ex)-officials who are very much against Netanyahoo's policies -- but no US media will talk to them or cover the story.
