10 Palestinians killed as Israel bombs Gaza playground

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Monday bombed a park near the beach in Gaza City killing at least 10 Palestinians including eight children on the first day of the Eid al-Fitr holiday, medics said.

The strike on the park in al-Shati refugee camp -- which reports suggested was a drone strike -- hit the playground, killing 10 people, mostly children as they played with their families while wearing holiday clothes they had been given to celebrate the end of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan.

Eyewitnesses said that 40 were also injured in the strike, which some were calling an "Eid massacre."

Spokesman for the Interior Ministry in Gaza Iyad al-Buzm said that explosives experts from the Gaza police had examined "the targeted places and the remnants of shells there" as well as the wounds on the bodies, determining them to be inflicted by an Israeli strike.

The Israeli army, however, said that the deaths were a result of "failed rocket attacks" launched by Palestinian militants.

Government Coordinator in the Territories Yoav Mordechai told Ma'an, however, that the rockets were launched by Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad.

Bezm denied the charges, saying: "The narrative of the Israeli authorities that these are rockets belonging to the Palestinian resistance are false allegations and a failed attempt to avoid responsibility for these crimes for fear of scandal and legal prosecution."

Director of reception at al-Shifa Hospital Ayman al-Sahbani said that a total of 10 bodies had arrived at the hospital as a result of the strike.

Another strike around the same time hit the outpatient clinic of al-Shifa Hospital, which is the main hospital in the besieged coastal enclave, but no casualties were reported.



Thousands of Palestinians have taken refuge in the al-Shifa Hospital, as 130,000 have fled their homes as Israeli authorities declared more than 43 percent of the Gaza Strip off-limits to civilians and destroyed more than 2,000 homes in recent weeks.

Israeli shelling killed two Palestinians in Jabaliya earlier on Monday amid a relative lull in fighting compared to previous days.

Another Palestinian, meanwhile, succumbed to his wounds, while seven bodies were recovered in Khuzaa in the eastern Gaza Strip as medical teams took advantage of the calm to retrieve bodies from the rubble of the heavily bombarded neighborhood.

The attacks came a day after Palestinian militants announced a 24-hour ceasefire beginning Sunday at 2 p.m. Israel refused to officially accept the ceasefire, but officials said they would restrain attacks to "retaliation" to Palestinian attacks.

Several rockets were fired on Monday into Israel.

Monday's attacks brought the total Palestinian death toll to 1,055, with more than 6,200 injured.

The Israeli army says at least 43 Israeli soldiers have been killed in clashes with Palestinian militants in the same time, while three civilians have died in rocket attacks on Israel.

Israel always fought a dirty war against the Palestinians. Either they are not capable of winning or they don't want to win it. I believe they are not capable of winning a ground warfare that Hamas is giving them in Gaza. So they attack civilian target instead using their airforce because of their frustration and their failure to dismember Hamas from their weapons, and ceiling all the tunnels that Hamas build on the ground. Its a cowardly way to try to win a battle.

28/07/2014 19:17
Only you Jew-hating morons would accuse Israel of being responsible for this. Had Hamas not continued to fire rockets at Israel, Israel would have nothing to respond to. The real question is what kind of parents would let their kids play outside in a WAR ZONE? And most likely, this was a Hamas mortar that didn't make it into Israel. But Maan doesn't care, it makes a good headline. Rest in peace, kids. Your gov't and parents are war criminals/

How sad, kids playing in Eid after having suffered so much, get blown to pieces. Even more sickening is the blame game. However it happened, these children with over 1000 other Palestinians are dead. Most (if not all) killed with high tech, bought & paid for US weapons, fired by IDF, then they call Hamas & the other factions terrorists. Words fail me ;(

28/07/2014 19:18
Mikefaa - The Hamas rockets are unguided - what's the chance of them hitting so many schools and hospitals. The IDF can hit precise targets, plus they are out for Palestinian blood which is palpable from reading any of their blogs and watching the racist behavior. The IDF also is spewing out propaganda which goes against all eyewitness accounts. Truly inhumane people- Psychopaths.

Mikefaa, it is a possibility. But it's not like Israel hasn't killed children (4 children playing on the beach, remember? and many other during bombings) or attacked hospitals and schools already, during the current siege on Gaza Strip.

I have to wonder if Palestinian rocket attacks into Israel -- we are told there have been over 1,000 in the last three weeks -- why have they resulted in only 3 Israeli civilian deaths? These rockets are apparently not very effective. Either way, the scorecard of deaths is horrific: over 1,000 dead and 6,000 wounded in Gaza; 3 dead in Israel (were these the three kidnapped and executed school-boys?) and 40 dead soldiers after they invaded Gaza. Israel should feel shame.

Why would Hamas fire a rocket to the beach? Israel is the other way? Are they so stupid they don't know east from west, north from south? Of course NOT! These are Israeli missiles, not Hamas.

19 ) Leah connor / Northern Ireland
28/07/2014 19:45
I think it seems very unlikely to have been caused by a failed Hamas rocket given the fact that the Israelis have bombed homes, hospitals and beaches with impunity. Why wouldn't they strike a park? The Israeli machine is tearing Gaza to pieces and you'd be blind not to see it. Free Palestine!!

28/07/2014 19:46
Al-shifa was attcked. such a shame, right? before you jump to conclusions - it was hitted by mistake (probably) when one of Hamas' rockets missed its original target. before you claim thats an israeli lie. of course you won't here about that, because "Camera crews are prevented from filming the area of impact at Shifa Hospital". and lets be honest.. when the israeli army attack by mistake innocent pepole, Hamas open its arms for camera crews from all around the world. sad, but true.

The Fajr-5, an Iranian-made rocket in Hamas' arsenal, has a range that threatens more than 3.5 million Israelis and has now been fired by Hamas on it's own people. You can bitch and shout, but at least realise that the tactic that Hamas comes up with causes no surprises. The militants and officers need to get out of their bunkers, and look what destruction has been done. While Israeli Arabs drink coffee and shmooze in cafes buy food and gifts and prepare for Eid el Fitr.

To Mikefaa #4, Frau Farbissina #6: '..the strong indications that these were misfired Palestinian rockets...' There's no such indication at all, actually. Israel has just suddenly started making these claims. It happened with the refugees at the school, it happened with the hospital -- now it's happened with the playground. Don't you -- and Israel -- realize that you only manage to make Israel's crimes more repellant when you lie about them in this fashion?

I think it is pretty clear that israel wouldnt fire on a hospital and a refugee camp. Its all part of Hamas' media campaign to show the dead children and women that THEY CAUSED in order to convince international media that they are the victims here. There is a very clear way to end this conflict. As soon as Hamas lays down their weapons there will be quiet. If israel lays down its weapons, there would be no more Israel. They have every reason to defend themselves from terrorists.

Think about this. There would be the same amount of casualties on either side if Israel did not have the Iron Dome Defense system. Hamas blindly fires rockets towards Israeli cities.

29/07/2014 02:29
So let me see if I understand all this. Hamas decides to launch rockets at a country with a modern military. That modern military responds with very destructive fire power. Because Hamas locates some missile firing areas in close proximity to houses, schools, and hospitals, this firepower causes much collateral damage and many civilian casualties. Why launch the rockets in the first place? After over a thousand deaths, what have they gained? The Palestinians deserve better leadership.

Neither have the moral high ground. Hamas was only elected out of Palestinian desperation in their fight against Israel's apartheid culture and military control over Gaza's borders, effectively putting them under siege. However, Hamas has clearly stated they do not recognize Isreal, do not want to compromise for peace. They routinely use human shields by their own admission and then use them as PR against Israel. If Hamas were merely removed, Israel's subjugation of Arabs would continue.

Hamas has been launching thousands of rockets into our cities,into our civilian population for years now. thank good and America for the "Iron dome" and for the bomb shelters we have to have in every house built in Israel since the 80's- that is the reason you don't see civilian casualties by the hundreds in Israel. Unfortunately an tragically the Hamas has done nothing to protect the civilian population, on the contrary, the are launching their missiles from amongst the population centers...

How can this not be stopped by force it angers me to see this happening and nothing done to stop it many of us wish helplessly that this shouldn't be happening it is surreal to believe that something so wrong is happening like this or even being let to happen! and to all responsible that have play any part deserve hell of the most vilest kind I pray for karma on each and everyone. What is happening is a complete wipe out of a population of humans that deserve to existing in peace and live.

Even UNRWA doctors say that Israel is targeting their hospitals and schools. Would Ma'an News please reveal the Jewish Satanic Talmudic teachings that makes Jews think they can can get away with this?

Here's a direct quote from Rabbi Manis Friedman, a highly respected rabbi of the Israeli terror regime... "The only way to fight a moral war is the Jewish way: "Destroy their holy sites. Kill men, women and children (and cattle)." This is why we stand with the Palestinians.

That's false!!! There's an EVIDENCE of that explosion made by rocket that misfired by HAMAS! Even the pro-palestinian UN accepted that EVIDENCE they've got from satellite pictures and approved it! There's mistakes that caused for unnecessary deaths unfortunately and unintended. But this event was by the hand of HAMAS!!

Hitler (he killed 95% Jews but this time we need to wipe all of them. We should wipe out Israel from map as Iran demanded.... May Allah give Heaven for all those who are sacrificing their life for their land (Palestine)

@ Barry, you said .."Hamas wants to kill Israelis for their Jihad".?Where you get that from? I'm not pro-Hamas yet it's obvious you got it all wrong. You guys are just trying too hard to brainwash the world via your control of the traditional media. BUT, things are changing real fast. Just go and Google "Palestine solidarity goes mainstream in UK as 100,000 march in London"

Hamas have been firing rockets into Israel for a very long time now without mis-firing into its own population... This massacre of children on the Muslim Eid holiday was by the IDF .... very deliberate and calculate to punish Palestinians for celebrating Eid. Israeli and its military have no morals. Can these truly be a chosen people of G_d..? Surely not. Barbaric in the extreme by all accounts and in comparison with other lunatic murderous fanatics see in this worlds history.Israel ranks high

Actually, it was a Hamas Bomb that misfired. It was aimed at Israeli children...but I guess that is O.K. right? None of you will complain about that...

Right now pointing finger over whose right,whose dthe tyrant will not bring an end to the war,the immediate issue at hand is to look at root of the problem,palestinians or hamas militants go to war basically because of land,territorrial,race and religion issues but the crux of the problem lies with not enough of economic activity to provide the palestinians a decent livelihood.Rich wealthy arab nations should help poorer nation in middle east to bring about good economic investment aCtivity.

A news report that most agencies have chosen to ignore. Hamas has executed in plain view, 20 young people of the dozens that were protesting for peace. If people who read this cannot connect the dots, it is because they choose not to. Here: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2014/07/29/Report-Hamas-Killed-20-Palestinian-Anti-War-Protestors-in-Gaza

Have just read the report kindly provided by #100: Spinoza. The fact that this Fox affiliated newsite reported what had been broadcast on Israeli Channel 10, causes me to question its content, particularly as no other similar reports seem to have emerged from dedicated journalists on the ground in Gaza. I try to keep an open mind, although I do know that collaboration isn't viewed well, & that some 'developed' nations also had a habit of executing people refusing to fight in their glorious wars.

Boy, does Maan attract a vocal crowd. Mostly Jew-haters, and vocal ones at that! What's amazing is that NONE of these writers who said such nasty things about Israel have posted A SINGLE WORD about the Muslim on Muslim deaths in Syria and Irag! Not a peep! That's probably 200,000 dead Muslims and not a stinking word. I guess only Jews need a good chewing-out, is that it? What does that say about those posters? Just anti-Semitic hypocrites who really don't give a crap about these dead Gazans.

- Hamas will choose martyrdom for all of Gaza, before choosing peace, or even a ceasefire, in which they get nothing, but what they had, and - Israel will never give Hamas anything, for provoking another war, so ** THERE CAN BE NO MORE CEASEFIRES **, and now - The People of Gaza should go to Egypt if they want to live !!
