Gaza (July 21, 2014) - The Israeli army continued their assault on Gaza today. The IDF attacked Gaza with bullets, bombs, missiles, bulldozers, drones and rockets killing 67 Palestinians in one area. Exact figures of the number of people killed in the tragedy will not be known for some time amid the chaos and confusion. Many people were buried alive in bombed out collapsed buildings and underground tunnels.
U. S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, was secretly taped in an off camera phone conversion Sunday, which was broadcast by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace. Kerry was caught off-camera saying in essence that Israel was exceeding their promise to the U.S. of a pinpoint operation in their attack on the Palestinians.
Hamas claims that they have captured one Israeli soldier. 25 Israeli soldiers have lost their lives in the battle, 13 on Sunday and another 7 reported by Israeli military on Monday.
Israel has killedover 550 Palestinians in the current war.
The asymmetrical war has seen Israel bombing children who were illegally targeted by Israeli army. The children were playing football on the beach. They have also bombed a hospital in Gaza, bombardment described by Arab League as a 'war crime.'
After an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council, Ban Ki-moon has called on Israel to agree to an immediate cease fire to suspend the violence. The talks came after the UN chief described Israel's shelling of a Gaza City suburb as "an atrocious action."
US Secretary of State John Kerry traveled to Cairo early Monday for crisis talks on Gaza, following President Barack Obama's call for an "immediate ceasefire" between Israelis and Palestinians.
Israel refuses to back down while rockets are being fired at them from the Gaza region. Hamas refuses to back down until Israel allows them to exist as an independent and free nation. The war will continue until Israel has destroyed all of the tunnels in Gaza. Hamas has little choice but to try and defend itself against a superior army. Hundreds of innocent people are being killed by Israel and the war marches on.
