Israeli warplanes bombard Gaza overnight Wednesday, 06 July 2011 06:30 Samar Mohaisen (Hits: 192)

Gaza Strip, (Pal Telegraph)- Israeli air forces bombarded yesterday night a smuggling tunnel in the north of Gaza Strip without causalities reported, according to Israeli radio.

The radio added that the tunnel was used by Palestinian fighters to smuggle weapons and terrorists to carry out military attacks against Israelis.

Palestinian medical sources confirmed that yesterday bombing heard in the east of Gaza city was a result of two local shells exploded in that area.

Israeli shelling caused a state of panic among civilians who were asleep on that time.

Yesterday, two Palestinians were killed and one injured as Israeli forces fired artillery shells at central Gaza Strip.

I looked up a MAJOR source of reporting I followed during the last deadly Israel agression and war on Gaza some time back:

Now find the same reportor (see beginning of post news) still on the job - posting latest news from Gaza and look for further reports to be ongoing including the latest aggression on Gaza (June 5-6th). This is the same reporter who, along with his father, reported the massacre and destruction of the peopple of Gaza as well as the untreatable effects of the deadly "white dust" which fell on so many of the people - including babies. This reporter and his father took photos of this and knew what it was before reported (or admitted for it's true effects) by UN. These brave souls of Gaza were way ahead of the Israeli gov and military who after so many other international reports had to finally admit to the same. (See the Goldstone Report)

Why was Salah muzzled for preaching peace in London?
Jonathan Cook
5 July 2011
Israel’s legal system, despite its reputation for presuming that Palestinian citizens are habitual security offenders, has neither found Sheikh Raed Salah guilty of anti-Semitism nor of directly helping terrorists. So why is Britain being even “more Israeli rather than the Israelis,” as two Arab members of the Israeli parliament caustically observed, and detaining him?
