GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Israeli army has fired over 5,000 tons of explosive ordnance at the Gaza Strip during its 10-day assault, the deputy director of the police explosives unit said.

Hazem Murad said his teams were deployed in all districts and have performed initial scans for Israeli-launched objects.

The Israeli army has used GBU shells fired by F15, F16, and F18 fighter jets, while MK48 bombs have been used by Israeli army boats.

He explained that MK84 bombs, which are usually used in wide-range wars, weigh 1,000 kg, are three meters in length, and have a damage radius of 300 square meters.

He also said that Israeli artillery units deployed east of Gaza launch highly explosive shells at people’s homes, mainly targeting Rafah and Khan Younis, but also targeting other border areas.

Murad said that the Israeli navy heavily fired shells that were not used in previous wars.

Imagine that's your child Obama?
Are you more 'heartbroekn" now?
Or don't 1.8 MILLION Gazan Palestinians (46% CHILDREN)have the 'right to defend theselves 'from "barrages" of ISRAEL'S SOVEREIGN OCCUPYING/BLOCKADING MILITARY?
Your selective empathy&bias is DISGUSTING.
What quota of dead &injured Gazan civilians did you PROMISE TO ISRAEL Obama? DISGUSTING ISRAEL! INHUMAN ISRAEL! "Remember and Never Forget" has long been DUMPED ON, by Zionism.

Hitler would be proud of his Zionist progeny! As for double standards Uncle Sam, is he waiting gleefully for the capability report on the bombs he has enabled Israel to use on civilians?

Egypt offered Hamas a ceasfire. Hamas rejected it and pays the price.
