But no militant casualties were seen yesterday by an Associated Press reporter at Shifa Hospital, the Gaza Strip’s largest. Instead, the hospital was overwhelmed with civilians. Bodies were two to a morgue drawer, and the wounded were being treated in hallways because beds were full.
Gaza health officials reported more than 550 Palestinians dead and about 2,500 wounded since Israel began the campaign 10 days ago, including 200 civilians.
Diplomats and European leaders raced around the region in search of a ceasefire, but with Palestinian rocket fire continuing, Israel said it won’t stop its crippling assault until “peace and tranquility” are achieved in southern Israeli towns in the line of fire.
You are not going to get peace with millions of armed men. The chariot of peace cannot advance over a road littered with cannon. ~David Lloyd George
