Israeli airstrikes have killed at least 32 Palestinians, including four boys and a six-month-old infant, in the Gaza Strip since Wednesday morning in a standoff that continued into Thursday evening, according to the BBC. 


BBC:

The Israelis say their attacks are a response to the firing of Palestinian rockets into southern Israel.

A BBC correspondent says Gazan drivers are staying at home, worried their vehicles could be hit from the air.

Well into the night, Israeli air strikes could still be heard in Gaza, the BBC’s Aleem Maqbool reports.

There are no signs of either the Israeli army or the Palestinian militants backing down, and the people in Israeli border towns and across the Gaza Strip are bracing themselves for more violence, he adds.

Relentless indiscriminate missile strikes are intolerable. Yesterday a student - a father of four children - was murdered by “Palestinian” Arabs from Gaza when they launched one of the thousands that have fallen on Israel in the past four years. This one landed on the campus of Sapir College in the south, and medics were unable to save his life.

No nation on earth would have shown the restraint that Israel has, and it’s way past time to let the IDF take the gloves off and fight back. Gaza needs to be pounded until the Arabs learn what it really costs to elect and harbor terrorists as their “government”.
