A massacre is happening in Gaza right now, and the people doing the killing are Israeli occupation forces. To date, 802 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza, including over 190 children. More than 5,200 have been wounded. In the last two weeks, thousands of buildings there have been destroyed or damaged beyond repair. Israel has repeatedly bombed homes, schools, hospitals, Mosques, water and power infrastructure, while Egypt has blocked relief aid from reaching the dying and wounded.
Without a doubt, Israel’s collective punishment constitutes war crimes. This is the third such massacre Israel has committed against Gaza in just 7 years. After the last ceasefire was reached in 2012, Hamas honored it for three months until Israel broke the agreement by dropping more warheads into the fenced-in strip where 1.8 million Gazans already were suffering a decade long blockade enforced by both Israel and Egypt.
