Friday, 2 January 2009 – DAY SEVEN


For the 7th consecutive day, IOF continued to attack the civilian population. Scenes of widespread destruction confirmed the determined intention to disrupt and eradicate the entire infrastructure of Palestinian life whether by using the sophisticated war machines, including warplanes and artilleries, or the psychological war through air leaflets calling on the civilian population to leave their homes.

In the Northern Gaza Strip, Picture of Al-Salam mosque destroyed, which was targeted in the war F-16 aircraft  in the Al-Salam neighborhood in the northern Gaza StripIsraeli warplanes bombed al-Salam Mosque, east of Jabalya town. The mosque was completely destroyed. In another crime which reflects the Israeli occupation’s brutality and its indifference for all moral and legal rules, the IOF fired a missile at three children while playing in al-Qarara area in the east of Khan Yunis. The three children, including two brothers, were killed. The third one was directly hit by the missile, and consequently decapitated. The area is 4 kilometers away from the border with Israel. The death toll of this day was 17 Palestinians, including 15 civilians, 5 of whom were children and 3 women. This number includes also 3 Palestinians who died of wounds they hd sustained earlier in the offensive.

Large number of casualties in Shifa Hospital led to the accumulation of injuries in the hospital corridors and insufficient medical staff
