GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces killed six Palestinians and injured 41 in attacks on Gaza in January, a ministry official said Saturday.

Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesman for Gaza's Ministry of Health, said in a statement that "the Israeli occupation intensified airstrikes against unarmed civilians, particularly in the eastern Gaza Strip" in January.

The statement pointed out that a large number of the injured were children.

The health sector in the Strip has been suffering a severe shortage in medicines and medical equipment, al-Qidra added.

Over the past month, tensions have risen in and around Gaza after more than a year of relative calm following Israel's war on the coastal territory in November 2012 which killed over 170 people, mainly civilians, and injured thousands.

Israeli army figures show nine rockets have struck Israeli territory since Jan. 1, and another five were intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system.

None of the rockets caused injuries.

Israeli airstrikes this year on targets in Gaza have injured dozens of people, mainly civilians.

The truce violations from "Israeli" site are countless. And they arrested 383 people. Still "Israel" try to make sure Palestinians are violating the truce. "Ya'alon warns Gaza, holds Hamas responsible for rocket fire". But who is responsible for all the attacks on Gaza?

"None of the rockets caused injuries".
Except to injure Israel's autocratic,colonial,expansionist ego & inconvenience its tunnel-vision of "All non-Jews(incld.Christian-Zio whackos)shall be subjugated and/or exterminated by white-supremacist Jewish fascism"! No thanks Israel.Radical,negative-peace Judeo-Christian NaZionism is the MOST injurious weapon against what should be a wonderful,pluralistic,civilized Israel.How does an Iron Dome defend Israel from internal,self-destructive Zionism?

Of course, any retaliation would be 'terrorism.' The problem is not 'terrorism,' but a lack of it. If the Palestinians could effectively retaliate, Israel would have to curb her murderous rampages. Notice how Israel does not make free with Lebanon. That's because Hezbollah has teeth, and has shown she can bite.

Israel killed 4 Gazans in January, not 6.

Hey Mel and Colin - we notice how you pulled the teeth from all the native Americans so they can't bite. Are you telling us that we should use your American model of subjugating the natives by genocide, debasement, bantunization and deneil of rights to the point of total capitulation? Crikey, it certainly worked for you two morality experts!

People - with families, loved ones and friends - reduced to a number on a scorecard. A low, even for Gaza.

To Brian Cohen #5: 'Are you telling us that we should use your American model of subjugating the natives by genocide, debasement, bantunization and deneil of rights to the point of total capitulation?' Go ahead. Grant them citizenship, the right to vote, and the right to leave their reservations and live anywhere they please. Yeah -- that would be a good model.
