The situation in Gaza is deteriorating rapidly. With so many people being killed and injured, we are only getting the mainstream media's reports about what's happening. Here is the latest from the MSM from 14 hours ago:
• Israeli aircraft, tanks and naval gunboats pounded the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip today as Israel continues the operation launched yesterday. Israel targeted a motorcycle carrying a rocket squad, killing one militant and wounding two, a Palestinian health official said. The Israeli military had no immediate confirmation of the report. Israel said the operation which began with the assassination yesterday of Hamas's top military commander was a response to several days of rocket fire from the coastal territory.
• A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip on Thursday struck an apartment building in southern Israel, killing three people, Israeli media said.
It was the first report of Israeli fatalities since Israel launched its air assault on the Gaza Strip a day earlier. Israeli police said more than 80 rockets and mortars were fired from Gaza after Jabari's death. Israel's military said its Iron Dome interceptor had shot down 27 of the missiles.
• At least 10 Palestinians, including two young children and seven militants, were killed yesterday and more than 93 were wounded. Reuters put the death toll at 13.
• "Today we relayed a clear message to the Hamas organisation and other terrorist organisations," Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu, a rightwinger who is seeking re-election on 22 January, said in a televised statement. Hamas said the attack would "open the gates of hell" for Israel.
• The United Nations security council held an emergency meeting on Wednesday night to discuss the onslaught and heard a plea from the Palestinian UN observer to stop "war crimes being perpetrated by Israel against the Palestinian people".
I want to travel to the region as soon as possible. I will be livestreaming from Gaza and interviewing as many people as possible. I will also be purchasing cameras and livestream equipment to take with me to give to activists there and to train them how to use them. The peoples voices will be heard. I will also need help raising money for food, lodging, transportation, guides, and translators. Anything helps.. Thank you.
