Israel continues to attack Gaza Strip

Israel continues to attack Gaza Strip

The Israeli air force continues to attack the Gaza Strip in spite of the fact that Hamas stopped missile fire against Israeli territory in the small hours of Sunday.

Guardian reports quoting the Associated Press that combat aircraft have dealt a new blow on the media-centre building in the city of Gaza where several media offices are located, among them Reuters. As a result of the first attack, six Palestinian journalists were injured.

Observers believe that Hamas stopping its missile attacks against Israel is the result of Egypt’s efforts to settle the conflict.

Israel’s air raids and shelling the Gaza Strip, causing already about 50 casualties including children, have been severely denounced at the emergency session of the foreign ministers of the League of Arab States in Cairo.

A delegation of the League of Arab States headed by Secretary General Nabil Elaraby intends to visit the Gaza Strip today to demonstrate support to Palestinians.
