Per this report and many others, 10,000 Israeli troops and tanks have effectively cut off Gaza city. The Gaza death toll is estimated as 500+. The Israeli’s claim that Hamas, their sworn enemy to the death, is hiding in homes, offices and even hospitals. All of these have been destroyed.
One of the Israeli leader said that this will continue until ‘peace and tranquility have been restored to the cities in Southern Israel.’
I have a question: When has peace and tranquility ever been the normal state of affairs in Southern Israel? No one has answered that obvious question.
The world needs a yardstick to judge when it can reasonably expect this war that has cost over 500+ Gaza dead, many children, and 1 Israeli soldier and 4 Israeli civilian prior to the invasion will end.
