When I wrote the post “Back to the worst” I couldn’t imagine the situation in Gaza would be so bloody as it has been and it continues being. In just 25 days, 1,499 Palestinians were killed, most of them civilians, and there are 7,000 wounded. The Israeli army have attacked a UN shelter, adducing that nearby there were militants launching an attack against them. So the UN blue banner is not longer a safe haven for the 200,000 internal displaced people trapped in the strip.
More than 530 Palestinians, mostly civilians, is the provisional death toll of the Israeli offensive on Gaza while Hamas rocket attacks have claimed the lives of 20 Israelis (18 soldiers and 2 civilians). There are already at least 84,000 displaced people in Gaza.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is back to its worst days, with the Israeli army on the verge to a ground invasion of the Gaza Strip after nights of aerial bombings that have caused at least 75 deaths and Hamas launching rockets against Israeli territory from Gaza.
