GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The ongoing Israeli military attacks on the Gaza Strip have so far displaced more than 135,000 Palestinians and destroyed more than 2,000 homes, the Geneva-based Euro-mid Observer for Human Rights said on Sunday.

The group said in a report that Israeli artillery and warplanes continued to bombard eastern Gaza neighborhoods near the border with Israel haphazardly and had forced thousands of Palestinian residents to leave their homes.

About half of the displaced people had found shelter in UNRWA schools, the report said, adding that many of them have lost their homes in Israeli airstrikes.

The report highlighted that on Saturday alone Israeli forces launched 756 raids on the Gaza Strip including 156 from the air, 210 from the sea, and 390 artillery shells.

The total number of Israeli raids since the beginning of the assault 13 days ago has hit 6,589 including 3,121 airstrikes, 1,545 from the sea, and 1,923 from military tanks, the report said.

The report added that Israeli forces destroyed 263 homes in Gaza on Saturday, including 33 completely leveled, bringing the total number of houses damaged in Gaza to 2,729 of which 404 houses had been leveled to the ground.

Two mosques were also hit on Saturday, bringing the number of mosques attacked to 40, including six completely destroyed.

Why have mosques been hit? Hamas and Islamic Jihad hide rockets in mosques. Israel showed pictures of tunnel entrances feet away from the mosque. Hamas has used mosques as military assets, which military assets Israel will and has been taking out of commission.

In Israel: 5 are dead and 80 are injured, and In Gaza: 400 are dead and 3,000 are injured, in less than 2 weeks, and * HAMAS SHOULD START BEGGING FOR A CEASEFIRE, * BEFORE THERE IS NOTHING LEFT OF GAZA, but they won't so Gaza will bleed, and bleed, and bleed.

It may already be too late at this stage, but unless Hamas asks for a truce now, this war will become like Syria's War - A Fight To The Death, with - 100,000 will be killed in Gaza (just like Syria), and - 1,000,000 will become refugees from Gaza (just like Syria) !!
