GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza said on Friday that at least 35 Palestinians had been killed and more than 200 injured in Israeli shelling and airstrikes on Rafah that took place after intense clashes broke out east of the city.

The ministry stressed that ambulances and medical crews are not able to enter the areas under attack, and that all means of communications had been cut off in the area.

Intense clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants were ongoing for more than an hour in the areas of al-Nasser, the destroyed Gaza International Airport, al-Blbeisi and al-Bayuk southeast of Rafah.

Israeli warplanes reportedly dropped a 1-ton bomb at the site of the clashes, killing dozens and injuring many more.

It is now clear that this was a result of Hamas breaking the ceasefire with a suicide attack and kidnapping of the IDF soldier. We Israelis have heard the message from Hamas loud and clear: Hamas wants war and does not care how many Gazans die. We will not sit still until Hamas is crushed. Hamas will make sure as many Gazans die as is possible. Anybody who supports Hamas is also a war criminal.

I think US Congress &Obama should SPEND THE NEXT 6 weeks summer recess in GAZA STRIP,to see exactly how OUR EXPROPRIATED TAX DOLLARS are slaughtering 2 MILLION OCCUPIED HUMAN BEINGS &their LEGIMATE resistance(while occupied by land,sea,air&economy,by Israel).
Go on chicken-hawks,see what you've PATRONED for so long?Go"work"in the"community"hospitals in Gaza Obama?Clean the wounds &BLOOD off the KIDS!Or,do your Tank/Drone/warship DUTY,with Israel?Congress can CONDUCT the barrage of WAR CRIMES!

I knew Israel wouldn't keep the truce. I read the reports. They claim they were attacked and believe - meaning they have NO proof it was Hamas Time to drop a one ton.bomb on them. Time for the U.S. to name Israel the terrorist it is and break all ties.

Terrorism is killing innocent people but another kind is when someone has the power to stop it and does not raise their finger to do so.. USA and the Arab league are as much terrorists here as Isreal. Jews are the Nazis of this era, Wonder what happens when Palestinians rise again in distant future..

Now that Hamas has abducted an Israeli soldier, and
with the inevitable Israel Search Response to recover him,
- 1,600 dead and 10,000 injured is just the beginning, and
- 16,000 dead and 100,000 injured is likely soon, and
The People Of Raphia Will End Up Paying For Hamas' Crimes !!

#1 Brian Cohen Stop playing hasbara games! Australian TV news/Aljazeera/BBC have shown Israel's massacres in Southern Gaa! Israel continued its "tunnel opperations"/offensive during the cease fire! BTW, you are conveniently neglecting to mention Israel's oppression of Palestinian people in the West Bank - slow genocide of Palestinian people and their culture!

Us and israel are the real terrorists. They just shows lies on the media because media, UN, world bank are under their controle,They steal oil from iraq to murder millions of innocent people. Ineach part of the world they are interfering and kill innocent. The humen rights are only for them. The media lies for them it is all bias, the media doesn't show the reality. I just want to ask that how many innocent people or how many kids died or even injured by the Hammas rockets? INJUSTICE

Mel, US Congress & Obama could stay in any number of Gaza's Mediterranean beach front luxury hotels, which have been built with Hamas' embezzled aid money. While their people have no blankets. What a shambles, what a bunch of corrupt and disgraceful Arabs.

Brian Cohen, did nobody tell you the reason for Hamas' action is many years of siege, occupation and attempts to kill civilians in their homes ? Since when was it credible to ask the world to believe those responsible for a war are its victims? Tibi Tubas, did nobody ever mention to you 'an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth' ? Is it supposed to mean 25 or 250 eyes for one eye ? If you're in support of the Zionist state, do you also believe in the religion it's founded on or not ?
