1000 tons of explosives and white phosphorus dropped on Gaza in 22 days
The Israeli 10th TV channel has disclosed that the Israeli occupation forces had used half of the air force and launched at least 2500 air raids over the past three weeks of attacks on Gaza Strip.
The TV military correspondent said on Saturday that the Israeli warplanes had dropped more than a thousand tons of explosives in that period.
He reported that the shells fired by artillery, tanks, infantry and gunboats were not included in those fired by the air force.
The intensive Israeli air, sea and land shelling had targeted civilian neighborhoods, mosques and security buildings other than UNRWA offices and warehouses and killed 1200 citizens so far other than 5400 wounded.
