Nowhere to run for those trapped in Gaza



Israel insists that its actions are targeted against Hamas militants. Yet how can they claim to be launching surgical strikes against militants when they have dropped more than 100 tons of bombs? How is it even possible to think that a large number of civilians will not be killed, maimed? How do you continue the attacks when there is overwhelming evidence of so many civilians dying, so many severely injured?

How can you say you are engaging in a military operation against Hamas militants when you have already punished the entire civilian population through months of crippling economic blockade?

The Gazans do not have a single jet fighter. They do not have a single tank. They do not have kiloton bombs. And now they have literally nowhere to run.
