GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An Israeli airstrike on Thursday caused extensive damage to the house of French consul Majdi Shaqoura in the al-Sudaniya area of northwestern Gaza.

The consul told Ma’an that his family departed the house after several warnings and threats by the Israeli army against the people in the al-Atatra and al-Sudaniya neighborhoods.

Shaqoura, who returned from a medical trip two days ago, said the family tried to return to check on their home during a 6-hour UN-sponsored humanitarian truce, but were shocked to see the destruction inflicted on the two-story home.

He said Israel was responsible for targeting the home and “brutally” destroying it, in contradiction of humanitarian laws and values.

The official added that Israel was aware that the house belonged to diplomatic personnel, but nevertheless targeted as “part of its collective punishment policy against the residents of Gaza.”

An Israeli military spokeswoman said she was looking into the report.

Look at it as payback to France for allowing thousands of Moslems to scare the shit out of the Jews that had to hide inside the synagogue last week-end.

"An Israeli military spokeswoman said she was looking into the report." and because it was a non-Palestinian whose house was bombed, they will have to admit their "error", something like this: "We are truly regretful this error was made, but . . ." and then go on to blame someone else. Again. Ruthless idiots. And they wonder why the world is turning against them.

@Arnold. You should know this, but I suppose are so blinded by hate to comprehend, that reports of the synagogue attack in Paris were false, and video clearly shows it was right wing Zionist extremists from the Jewish Defense League who destroyed property and attacked Palestinian demonstrators in Paris.

@James Thanks for re establishing the truth. The demonstration was a peaceful one, even though those "Jews" that you are talking about(protected by policemen,insulting) tweeted just before that they wanted pro-palestinians to come to them (which they didnt) so they could have a go at each other. They are part of an small but powerful organization ,LDJ, which was dissolved years ago but still active and they have support from higher powers though they're banned in many countries (US, Israel,...
