Hundreds of Palestinians in Gaza have been massacred and wounded as Israel
has launched a massive bombing campaign against the people of Gaza. The
bombing rampage took place as thousands of Palestinian children were in the
streets on their way home from school. Palestinian parents were running
frantically in the streets looking for their children as U.S.-provided F-16s
and Apache helicopters rained down more than 100 bombs and missiles on Gaza.

AFP reported: "There was no space left in the morgue and bodies were piled
up in the emergency room and in the corridors, as many of the wounded
screamed in pain."

Because of the U.S.-backed Israeli blockade and strangulation of the people
of Gaza for the past 18 months there is little or no medicine to treat the
wounded, electricity for hospitals, or food or clean water for much of the
population. An Israeli military spokesperson said, "The operation is 'only
just beginning'."

The Israeli Defense Ministry said in a statement: "The action will continue
and will widen as much as is demanded..."
