Israeli airstrike kills 3 Palestinian children



By KARIN LAUB and TIA GOLDENBERG

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) - A Gaza health official says an Israeli airstrike has killed three children from the same family in Gaza City.

Ashraf al-Kidra says the two boys and one girl between the ages of 8 to 10 were killed Thursday when their home was hit.

Their grandfather, Marzouk Shahaibar, says they had gone on the roof of the home to feed pigeons.

TV footage from the scene shows a little doll and a sandal near pools of blood on the roof of the home.

The deaths come a day after four cousins ages 9 to 11 were killed on the beach beside a coastal road west of Gaza City.

The news coverage of this stupidity on the part of the Palestinians who send their children to play in a missile impact zone is incredible, This effort on their part to illicit tears from us getting to be laughable. Wait until there is a real disaster, and, lefty news writers/reporters, because you have hardened the hearts of your readers with this kind of reporting, no one will care, then its on your back. learn to report the news, and leave the political leaning to the politicians

You foolish, racist uninformed Americans who glorify Israel and condemn the innocent women and children being slaughtered by the Israeli military, you keep mentioning "war". This is not a "war". This is a massacre of defenseless people trapped in the most condensed area of humans in the world. Over 200 Palestinians killed, more than half women and children, and one Israeli dead. That's not a "war", it's a massacre. Do you really believe the Palestinians put their children in harms way on purpose? Do you believe ANYTHING and EVERYTHING the mainstream pro Israeli media in this country tells you? Good grief, take 5 minutes of your time and go to an alternative news source and get closer to the truth of the situation. The U.S. government is complicit in this slaughter for going along with the Israelis. This, along with so many other foreign policy atrocities, is a blight on the soul of our country, as well as Israel.

Too bad the Hamas terrorists like to hide behind Children!! War is WAR - dying on all sides happen till war is won by one side or the other. If the reprobate cult that is Hamas wishes for death to cease - THEY will cease and desist their aggression against the Jewish State of Israel!

The headline should have been (Hamas has caused the killing of three Palestinian children), Hamas has been using their own people as a shield. they launch rokets from population crowded areas! in any war ,unfortunately, civilian get killed! Hamas has started this by killing 3 teens!cowards!!

Actually Hamas never took responsibility for this. Also in response, Israeli burned a child alive, ALIVE. Talk about some sick stuff, man those jews are evil.

Shame on America for backing the slaughter of these innocent civilians. I had a chance to visit Isreal a couple of summers ago. The conditions the Palestinians are forced to live under are horrible. How would you like it if you had to wait on line 5 hours just to cross the border everyday to go to work to support your families? What do you think is going to happen to all the homes that were destroyed in Gaza? The Isrealis bulldoze them and force the owners out. They than build settlements for the Isrealis. The homeless Palestinians are forced to out of their homes and families have to live in refuge camps. We take things for granted in America. We are free to go about our lives as we please but other people around the world are restricted. America is not innocent in the massacre of the innocent civilans around the world. Who do you think helped Sadaam during the Iraqi and Iranian War? Who do you think trained Osama bin Laden?

Everyone in Gaza knows exactly who and what the terrorist Hamas are doing. The fighting will continue until Hamas and Hezbalah are no longer a presence in the mid east. Israel must do whatever is neccessary to stay a live.
