The Zionists think they can kill Palestinians simply because they have a right to do so but Palestinians must neither complain nor defend themselves. The Zionists' latest assault on Gaza has resulted in 25 deaths and dozens injured in two days. The tiny Strip's bombardment continues and more casualties are expected.

It is killing time again in besieged Gaza. The Zionist killing machine is at it again, doing what it does best: killing innocent Palestinians, from 30,000 feet up in the air with US-supplied F-16 and F-15 fighter planes.
Following yesterday’s murder of nine Palestinians in 60 Israeli air strikes, 16 more Palestinians were murdered by the Zionists today as the Israeli military intensified bombardment of the tiny Gaza Strip.
In one air attack on the Khan Yunis refugee camp, seven Palestinians were killed and 25 injured. Dozens of other Palestinians were wounded elsewhere, according to Gaza Health ministry officials.
In addition to deploying 1500 soldiers on the Gaza border, the Zionist regime has called up 40,000 army reservists in what is believe to be an imminent ground offensive against the besieged enclave that has been referred to even by Britain’s conservative pro-Israel Prime Minister David Cameron as an open air prison.
In a tit-for-tat, Palestinian fighters launched more than 80 rockets at Israel yesterday but caused little damage. Such rockets are fired more in frustration than causing any real damage.
The Zionist regime’s call to citizens living within a range of 40km of Gaza to stay close to bomb shelters, gave further credence to Israel’s planned offensive.
“We are preparing for a battle against Hamas which will not end within a few days,” Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon said in a statement. “We will not tolerate missiles being fired at Israeli towns and we are prepared to extend the operations with all means at our disposal in order to keep hitting Hamas.”
Israel’s latest outraged commenced following the Zionist allegation that Hamas was responsible for the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli settlers that had disappeared on the Occupied West Bank on June 12.
Hamas has denied all involvement but that has not prevented the zionists from perpetrating atrocities against the Palestinians. During the two-week period that the three Israeli settlers went missing, the Zionist occupation forces murdered 10 Palestinians including two boys, 7-year-old and 15-year-old.
Following the discovery of bodies of the three Israeli settlers, the Zionists went on a rampage. A 16-year-old Palestinian boy, Mohamed Abu Khdeir was kidnapped by Zionist vigilantes, tortured and burnt alive. His charred body was recovered a few hours later on July 9.
While Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed Israelis “do not do such things,” the following day, his border police grabbed Abu Khdeir’s cousin visiting from the US and kicked and punched him while he lay on the ground.
Initially, the Zionists denied their border police were involved. Then an amateur video emerged showing the policemen smashing Tariq’s face while he lay on the ground. The video has since gone viral.
Despite these atrocities, the Zionists claim victimhood and are on the verge of invading the besieged Gaza Strip where 90 percent of people are already food deficient.
