Dec 27, 2008
As instructed by its political leadership, the Israeli occupation terrorist army continued its terrorist attacks against the Gaza Strip and shelled further targets raising the number of deaths among the residents to 225, and at least 700 residents were wounded, dozens seriously.
Palestinian medical sources reported that the number of Palestinians killed in the Israeli airstrike against the Gaza Strip Saturday afternoon stands at 225, including policemen, women and children. Over 700 were reportedly wounded in the airstrike.
Earlier reports said that 140 were killed as 60 Israeli jet fighters launched a simultaneous attack hitting around 50 locations in different parts of the Gaza Strip. The deadly airstrike came during rush hour, as school children were going home from schools and Palestinian Police officers were celebrating their graduation, which explains the high number of casualties.
As of the time of writing, Israeli war plans were reportedly hovering over the Gaza Strip. Palestinian hospitals in the Gaza Strip declared high alert and are calling upon people to donate blood in order to be able to aid the high number of injuries.
