VIDEO: Israel Bombing Residential Areas, Civilian Infrastructure in Gaza

In-depth Report:

Via Electronic Intifada, Israeli attacks on Gaza “have caused serious damage to civilian infrastructure including homes, schools, sports facilities and a hospital in many parts of Gaza City,” according to the the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights:

Israeli forces have launched dozens of airstrikes on Gaza City, targeting governmental and civilian facilities and other objects mostly located in densely-populated areas. The targets have included the building of the Council of Ministers in the west of the City, which was completely destroyed and a number of nearby houses damaged; the building of the police command in the center of the City, which was completely destroyed and a number of nearby housesdamaged; the building of the Civil Department of the Ministry of Interior in the south of the City, which was attacked for the second time, causing damage to al-Quds Hospital and a number of public and UNRWA school; and Palestine Stadium in al-Remal neighborhood in the center of the City, which was extensively damaged.

Also, this video of the al-Zaytoun quarter, a residential area in Gaza, being bombed by what is reportedly “a bomb or missile dropped by a US-supplied Israeli F-16 jet.”

The New York Times reports that “Israel broadened its assault on the Gaza Strip on Saturday from mostly military targets to centers of government infrastructure.”

The purpose behind this is clear: as Interior Minister Eli Yishai said, “The goal of the operation is to send Gaza back to the Middle Ages. Only then will Israel be calm for forty years.”
