    Israeli air strikes target Gaza

    Palestinians say Israeli F-16 bombers have launched a series of air strikes against key targets in the Gaza Strip, killing and injuring dozens of people.

    Missiles hit security compounds run by the militant group Hamas in the centre of Gaza City, killing at least 40 people, Hamas officials said.

    The strikes, the most intense Israeli attacks on Gaza in recent times, come after the expiry of a truce with Hamas.

    Israel has threatened an offensive to stop the firing of rockets from Gaza.

    This has been brewing for the last couple of days as rocket attacks from Gaza have gone on despite Israel warning of retaliation.

    here they say:

    Au moins 140 Palestiniens ont été tués samedi dans des raids de l'armée de l'air israélienne dans la bande de Gaza. Ces frappes visaient l’appareil de sécurité du Hamas. Toutes ces installations auraient été détruites dans ce raid
    At least 140 people have been killed on Saturday in Israeli Air Force raids in Gaza. These strikes were designed to destroy the security system of the Hamas. All these installations would have been destroyed in the raid.

    Re: Israeli air strikes target Gaza

    Hamas had it coming. They can't expect to be able to launch rocket attacks into Israel with impunity. While Gaza and the West Bank rightfully belong to the Palestinians, Israel has the right to defend itself against attacks. Hamas appears to be unrepetant based on what I am reading in the English language media. Have yet to look at French, Chinese, or Indonesian language media of yet.

    of course!

    Israël frappe la Bande de Gaza - lesoir.be

    it looks like they've aimed at the Hamas police forces, and they have killed general Tawfik Jaber (the chief of the Hamas police)

    Re: Israeli air strikes target Gaza

    Both sides are idiots and have people in power that do not want peace.

    Israel keeps building illegal settlements and oppresses the native Palestinians on so many fronts..

    Palestinian radicals retaliate by lob rockets that could not hit the broadside of a barn or suicide bombers or what not

    Israel fires back killing hundreds in the most densely populated place on earth.

    Palestinian radicals retaliate again

    Israel retaliates..

    the cycle of stupidity continues... only ones getting anything out of this are the people in power and the weapons manufactures.

    I agree.

    After being pounded by more than 60 rockets on December 24 and numerous additional rocket attacks afterward, no reasonable government could stand idle as its civilian population were assaulted. Had New York City or London or Paris been pounded by 60 rockets from a hostile entity with subsequent volleys occuring in the following days, there is little doubt that the U.S., Britain, or France would have moved swiftly to neutralize the aggressor.

    Today's air strikes targeted the Hamas security infrastructure. Security installations are legitimate military targets. Hence, despite claims already arising in some quarters of a "massacre," the attacks were lawful (legitimate military objectives) and justified (self-defense).

    All this after Israel dismantled said illegal settlements in the Gaza Strip.
