Thirteen killed in new Israeli strikes on Gaza: medics

by Staff Writers
Gaza City (AFP) Jan 14, 2009
Israeli jets carried out a fresh wave of air strikes across the Gaza Strip late on Wednesday, killing at least 13 Palestinians, including a 13-year-old boy, medics and witnesses said.

Six people were killed in a number of air raids near the Sufa crossing, close to the southern town of Rafah, said the sources.

Three civilians were also killed in a house east of Khan Yunis in the centre of the narrow coastal strip while the 13-year-old died in a strike on the Sabra neighbourhood in southwestern Gaza City, in the north.

Medics said that two suspected militants were also killed in bombing around the Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza in a strike that also wounded two cameraman from a Hamas television channel.

At least one person was killed in another attack, in Gaza City's Tel El-Hawa neighbourhood. Witnesses said that several people were injured in a separate strike in the same area on a United Nations vehicle.

The head of Gaza's emergency services Moawiya Hassanein told AFP that the overall Palestinian death toll since the start of Operation Cast Lead on December 27 rose to 1,035.

Second Generation Warfare Bungles In Gaza Part One
Washington (UPI) Jan 14, 2009
So far, Israel's assault on the Gaza Strip has produced no surprises. On the physical level of war, the Israel Defense Forces are triumphing. The Palestinians are suffering about 100 people dead for every dead Israeli. To a Second Generation War military, which is what Israel's formerly Third Generation War army has become, that is the main measure of victory.
