    Red Cross: Israel delayed access to Gaza wounded

    Red Cross: Israel delayed access to Gaza wounded - Yahoo! News

    The ICRC normally conducts confidential negotiations with warring parties, and its accusation against Israel was a rare public criticism of one party in a conflict over a specific incident.

    Eventually, rescuers from the international Red Cross and Palestine Red Crescent received permission to go into the shelled houses during the halt in fighting Wednesday, four days after the buildings were hit by Israeli shells.

    "This is a shocking incident," Pierre Wettach, head of the ICRC for the region, said.

    The rescue team "found four small children next to their dead mothers in one of the houses. They were too weak to stand up on their own. One man was also found alive, too weak to stand up," the statement said. "In all, there were at least 12 corpses lying on mattresses" in one of the houses, it added.

    The organization said the children and the wounded had to be transported by donkey cart to ambulances.

    "The Israeli military must have been aware of the situation but did not assist the wounded," the international Red Cross said. "Neither did they make it possible for us or the Palestine Red Crescent to assist the wounded."
    Thoughts? Is the Red Cross an organization that feeds off anti-semitism?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Until I know of the IDF's reasons for keeping them out this is a deplorable act.

    There's nowhere near enough information here to make any sort of meaningful comment.

    Any indication as to the circumstance behind the supposed Israeli tank shell hitting the truck(s)?

    I find it interesting how some people are just flat out unwilling to criticize Israel or find any fault with them.

    Red Star is an actual organization that is not associated with the Red Cross/Red Crescent due to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. They have wanted for a long time to become a part of the organization but were not allowed to due to pressure from the International Red Cross because of this.

    I find it interesting how some people, regrdless of how little information is present, will automatically blame Israel for everything.

    The Red Cross complains they can't get in, and the UN quits giving aid. Amazing.
