Israeli Massacre in Gaza

 At least ten Palestinian people, including 3 children and 2 women were killed and 40 other were wounded Friday afternoon in four separate attacks by Israeli occupation forces on various parts of the Gaza Strip according to Palestinian sources.

Israeli artillery shells struck a group of civilians during a family picnic at a Gaza beach, killing nine people, including three children, and wounding more than 25 others, Palestinian medical officials said today.

The artillery shells were fired by Israeli gunboats stationed just off the Mediterranean coast.

The barrage scattered body parts along the beach. A tent was destroyed, and bloody sheets were scattered about. A crowd quickly flocked to the area, screaming and running around in confusion. One tearful man held the limp body of what appeared to be a girl or young woman. “Muslims, look at this,” he shouted.

A car of a Qassam Brigades commander traveling in Beit Lahya was also targeted by an Israeli drone wounding at least one. This attack came less than one hour of targeting a car in Beit Lahya killing 3 Palestinians from the same family.

A fourth aerial attack targeted a car traveling on the Salahuddin road in Gaza.

The final death toll of the latest Israeli onslaught is not yet known.
