Israeli airstrikes hit Gaza’s sole power plant early this morning. As flames spread to fuel tanks, plumes of smoke smothered the dawn, ending a horrific night of bombardment from land, sea and air killing at least 30 Gazans. Some may characterize it as a night of deadly revenge. For there is now an Israeli report that the civilian massacre in Shuja’iyyeh last week and subsequent sniper attacks on civilians were reprisal for the deaths of Israeli soldiers.

The last Israeli invasion, Cast Lead, lasted 22 days. We are now in Day 21 of Operation Protective Edge, and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu vows a “protracted” battle. Yesterday, after ten Israeli forces were killed in combat, thousands of residents in the Gaza communities of Shuja’iyya, Zeitoun, Jabaliya, Beit Lahiya, and Beit Hanoun, were sent messages to evacuate their homes before Israel’s bombardment commenced. These strikes were described by teenage Gazan blogger Farah Baker as falling “like the heavy rain of January” as Gazans suffered one of deadliest days so far.

Palestinian officials say more than 110 people have been killed in the past 24 hours. Israel’s targets included refugee homes, a government complex and the El-Amin Mosque.

Baker lives opposite Gaza’s Al-Shifa Hospital compound. Minutes after the hospital’s outpatient clinic was hit yesterday an attack on the adjacent park at Beach (Shati) refugee camp killed at least 10 Palestinians, including 9 children. The head of Shifa Hospital’s emergency room staff, Ayman Sahabani, said at least 46 people were also wounded. 

Israel denied its airstrikes were the cause of the massacre at the park. It  blamed “Gaza terrorists whose rockets fell short“. B. at Moon of Alabama picked up a pre scrubbed version of an NBC News article stating that an unnamed  NBC News journalist “witnessed the attack on the hospital and said it had been fired by an Israeli drone.” 

The article now says:

 “Early reports from the ground had said an Israeli drone appeared responsible for the attack..”

–thereby leaving out the information it was one of their own journalist who witnessed the attack.

In retaliation for the attack on the park, Hamas forces infiltrated Israel via a tunnel near the Nahal Oz kibbutz, which is about a mile from the Gaza border, and killed a number of Israeli soldiers. 

Ma’an News reports: Qassam Brigades releases details of Nahal Oz operation that killed at least five soldiers:

The group said that they had managed to infiltrate “behind enemy lines” around 6:45 p.m. of Monday, and killed 10 Israeli soldiers in the operation.

The group added that they attempted to capture a soldier but they were not able to…

On Tuesday, the Israeli military said that five soldiers had been killed in the strike. 

They also claimed the one al-Qassam fighter had died.

Al Jazeera reported the Nahal Oz operation raised to 10 the number of Israeli military fatalities yesterday, bringing the total of Israeli soldiers killed since the beginning of operation “Protective Edge” to 53.

The massacre at the Gaza park, where children were playing, follows the publication of a video (reported here yesterday) of Israelis in Tel Aviv engaged in chants cheering on a genocide of Palestinian children: “There’s no school tomorrow, there’s no children left there [in Gaza]! Oleh!”

Some of the Israeli attacks in Gaza have been retribution. This recent posting from Eran Efrati (once chief investigator for Breaking the Silence whose reports have been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Guardian) on his Facebook page is chilling testimony to support reports of Israeli snipers killing wounded civilians during the Shuja’iya neighborhood massacre, boldface mine:

In recent weeks I was on the border of Gaza and getting reports from soldiers in the Gaza Strip who leak information out to me. I am in the process of publication of two big stories in major U.S. newspapers, but there are some things I can share with you right now: Soldiers in two different units inside Gaza leaked information about the murdering of Palestinians by sniper fire in Shuja’iyya neighborhood as punishment for the death of soldiers in their units. After the shooting on the Israeli armored personnel carriers, which killed seven soldiers of the Golani Brigade, the Israeli army carried out a massacre in Shuja’iyya neighborhood. A day after the massacre, many Palestinians came to search for their relatives and their families in the rubble. In one of the videos uploaded to YouTube, a young Palestinian man Salem Shammaly calls the names of his family and looking for them between the ruins when he is suddenly shot at in his chest and falls down. A few seconds after that, there are two additional shootings from snipers into his body, killing him instantly. Since the video was released, there was no official response from the IDF spokesperson. Today I can report that the official command that was handed down to the soldiers in Shujaiyya was to capture Palestinian homes as outposts. From these posts, the soldiers drew an imaginary red line, and amongst themselves decided to shoot to death anyone who crosses it. Anyone crossing the line was defined as a threat to their outposts, and was thus deemed a legitimate target. This was the official reasoning inside the units. I was told that the unofficial reason was to enable the soldiers to take out their frustrations and pain at losing their fellow soldiers (something that for years the IDF has not faced during its operations in Gaza and the West Bank), out on the Palestinian refugees in the neighborhood. Under the pretext of the so-called “security threat” soldiers were directed to carry out a pre-planned attack of revenge on Palestinian civilians

    I get the impression that Israel would like to deal with the Arab problem by starving 1.8 million people.

    Then they will be that much nearer to the so called Greater Israel.

    Question is , who in the international community is going to stop them.

    Then in a year or two , we will have a replay of the same strategy in the West Bank and then only East Jerusalem will be left sort out.

    Judging by the deafening silence right now, Israel is being led to believe they can get away with almost any crime.

    • CloakAndDagger on July 30, 2014, 2:00 am

      @ amigo

      There is more at stake here for Israel than meets the eye. Not only is the IDF being shamed and stymied by under-equipped liberation fighters, their very credibility as a weapons supplier is in doubt as Iron-Dome fails to stop even a single missile:

      So, now more than ever, they need something that can be spun as a conclusive victory against the “insurgents”. The PR battle is irrecoverably lost and the oft-lauded IDF has been proven to be a horde of cowards that can only turn their fire power on undefended women and infants, and unable to engage in direct combat with the resistance fighters. Now, their vaunted missile defense system has been proven to be useless, which must be raising eyebrows in Lebanon, Syria, and Iran.

      All that remains now is the nuclear option, something I wouldn’t put past them as a last act of desperation. I expect tactical nukes to be deployed shortly. The US can do nothing but watch, having supplied them with those very weapons over the years.

      Apocalypse is upon us and impotence grips us all. If there is a god, or benevolent extraterrestrials, this would be a great time to make their presence known.

  2. David Doppler on July 29, 2014, 2:18 pm

    I suspect that Netanyahu is intent on doing substantially more than Cast Lead, longer time, more dead, in order to justify himself to his right wing, who would support him killing everyone door to door, and are ready to dump him at the first sign of peace. I believe news coverage should focus more on the pressures on Netanyahu from the most rabid within Israel. What this group is saying, what that minister is saying, what that rabbi has said, how the Haaretz columnists size up the politics of the situation. Netanyahu’s and Israel’s narrative to the West is so completely dissociated from reality. If Israel and the Palestinians were to reach an accord on a long-term cease-fire with some combination of disarmament and opening of borders, would the Israeli electorate stand for it? Or topple the government immediately in favor of Lieberman or someone else?

    • marc b. on July 29, 2014, 4:43 pm

      re: Netanyahu, that’s my impression, too, david. which makes the immediate future seem even more bleak. this has completely crossed from the cold amorality of power politics to bible-infused psychopathology.

      PS you’ve got the fixin’s for a good definition of the state in there, the state not being the collection of individuals elected to office, but all of the connections between them and others that is the decision-making process.

    Kenneth Roth, Executive Director of Human Rights Watch, shares a link to the New York Times interactive of destruction in Gaza.

    Satellite imagery shows 600 structures destroyed in Shejaiya neighborhood of #Gaza City.

    • seafoid on July 29, 2014, 3:40 pm

      Thanks for the link . Very interesting.

      HaFink says that Israel is running a campaign of terror , destroying everything so the people in Gaza will turn against Hamas and accept the continuation of the siege, albeit with a ceasefire.

      One of the more interesting angles is that damage to date is estimated at $6bn which is massive for Gaza but peanuts for the outside world. Qatar could easily afford it.

      And the damage to Israel’s image comes in far higher.

      But Israel is in existential danger

      • Kay24 on July 29, 2014, 4:19 pm

        I can however feel the helplessness of the Palestinian people. Until they build there will be many homeless and starving even. After they build the fear would be Israel will gift them with 500 pound pounds yet again, and even predictable. What human suffering is this? Who keeps justifying this brutality, that would be Israel and the good ole US of A.

  4. Stephen Shenfield on July 29, 2014, 2:23 pm

    The ratio of 3:1 is rather moderate, I think. The overall casualty figures suggest a ratio of at least 20:1. It could go higher, of course, but it is a long way from the 100:1 ratio the Nazis used and this shows how absurd it is to compare Zionism with Nazism (at least for the time being).

    • on July 29, 2014, 2:57 pm

      I believe the current numbers in this latest massacre is over 1,000 Palestinians noncombatants killed, 3 Israeli noncombatants killed.

      Do the math, the ratio exceeds 300 to 1. Not sure how you arrive at the conclusion that “The overall casualty figures suggest a ratio of at least 20:1.” I guess you got it from the usual places habarists get their materiel.

      It is absurd to compare Nazism with Zionism.

    • lysias on July 29, 2014, 3:10 pm

      You think the difference between the two ratios is so different that any comparison between them is absurd? Myself, I would say that in my opinion the difference between 20:1 and 100:1 is merely quantitative, not qualitative.

      Again in my opinion, what was really wrong with the Nazi policy was not so much the numbers involved as that they killed noncombatants for what resistance fighters had done. And that the Israelis apparently also do, even to children.

      • Hostage on July 29, 2014, 8:26 pm

        Again in my opinion, what was really wrong with the Nazi policy was not so much the numbers involved as that they killed noncombatants for what resistance fighters had done. And that the Israelis apparently also do, even to children.

        Remarkably enough, it was the rest of the world that was horrified by that practice and the outrageous decision of the US Tribunal in the Trial of Wilhelm List and Others (the Hostages trial). The US jurists held that killing innocent non-combatants in reprisals for acts committed by others was NOT a violation of the international laws of warfare. That claim was widely rejected and quickly remedied by the 1948 ICRC Diplomatic Conference at Geneva, which adopted the common articles of the four new conventions regarding the victims of war (that explicitly prohibited the practice at all times and in all places). See the commentary in the Forward and the discussion of the case in Volume 8 of the Law Reports of the UN War Crimes Commission.

      • Inanna on July 29, 2014, 11:04 pm

        Thanks Hostage. Good to see you.

    • oldgeezer on July 29, 2014, 4:01 pm

      Well the Nazi ratio was much lower than 100 to 1 in many places. It wasn’t fixed across all of it’s fronts. In Italy 10 Italians were killed for every German policeman.

      As has been said it’s not the numbers. It’s the wanton killing, it’s the dehumanizing, it’s the callous disregard for life. Oh I know they say they deeply regret but they don’t. The continued killing and refusal to address a peace. Not only in Gaza but the West Bank. It’s the massive destruction of civilian infrastructure. It’s their decision tp punish the population through violence.

      It’s the calls for genocide from Israel and it’s supporters.

      Israel has become a very nasty state. I see no redemption any more.

    • Abierno on July 29, 2014, 4:30 pm

      @SShenfield. Even with these ratios, with percentage of civilians including women and children hovering at 70 to 80%, to the best of my knowledge Hamas has been the party showing restraint as regards civilians deaths. To my count, which may not be accurate, there have been three (two non Jewish Israeli, one of which was a Bedouin who had no place to shelter) from their poorly guided rockets. However, there have been numerous incursions into Israel, several of which appear to be near civilian kibbutz, who could have provided ample target had they been so inclined. But they have targeted solely soldiers. In one case they were reported to have waited a considerable time to locate a military, as opposed to a civilian target. This level of restraint in the face of the devastating massacre of their own families, women and children shows true discipline – as compared to IDF snipers who simply killed civilians in Sujaiya for revenge, sport, to dissipate the boredom.

  5. a blah chick on July 29, 2014, 2:28 pm

    Given all the sexualized violence directed towards the Palestinians and the Left I fear there may be some raping when the Golani boys are set loose in Gaza. They’ve already gotten the message that they can take out their “frustrations” out on the civilian population.

    And why are they frustrated? Probably because they are not use to having people fighting back. More dangerous than chair wielding Turks.

    • lysias on July 29, 2014, 3:17 pm

      Charlie Company of the 1st Battalion, 20th Infantry Regiment, 11th Brigade, 23rd (Americal) Infantry Division committed the My Lai massacre to a large extent because, in the preceding months, they had suffered several deaths and casualties from enemy mines and booby-traps.

  6. kma on July 29, 2014, 2:36 pm

    “the murdering of Palestinians by sniper fire in Shuja’iyya neighborhood as punishment for the death of soldiers”

    It is not “punishment”. It’s definitely more for pleasure of the IDF. As this report says later on, “revenge” and “take out their frustrations and pain” are closer to the truth, but the truth is still so horrible that it is hard to face. Thanks for this article. It’s important, and I can’t wait for the Efrati articles. I hope they get publicity.

  7. Justpassingby on July 29, 2014, 2:38 pm

    Is Israel trying to break a record or something? How many do they want to be killed? Just today israel said this war will be long, so what number of killed palestinians do they want? I sense 1800-2000 will be the result of the genocide this time.

  8. seafoid on July 29, 2014, 2:45 pm

    The Israeli Army is above all scared about what the tunnels say about the future. Zionism was fine as long as those brave Jews had a technological advantage over the backward Arabs.

    Bibi gives the theme legs here

    And as long as the IDF dudes had the sunglasses and could insult the aravim at the checkpoints and go to Gaza every few years and Hamas would threaten to open the gates of hell and then run away everything was kosher.

    Humiliation would keep them in their place

    But Israel’s strategy in Gaza has failed . Listen to Kramer in 2010

    Starving Gaza didn’t work.
    Killing 11 people on the Mavi Marmara didn’t work.

    The cheap occupation is over. From now on it’s going to cost.

    Gideon Levy

    “What exactly were we thinking? That Gaza would live forever in the shadow of Israeli (and Egyptian) caprice, with the restraints sometimes loosened a bit, or sometimes painfully tightened? That the biggest prison in the world would carry on as a prison? That hundreds of thousands of its residents would remain cut off forever? That exports would be blocked and fishing restricted? What exactly are 1.5 million people supposed to live on? Is there anyone who can explain why the blockade, even if partial, of Gaza continues? Can anyone explain why its future is never discussed? Did we think that all this would continue and Gaza would accept it submissively? Anyone who thought so was a victim of dangerous delusions, and now we are all paying the price.
    But please, just don’t act surprised. Just don’t raise hell about the Palestinians raining rockets on Israeli cities for nothing – such luxuries are no longer acceptable. The dread that Israeli citizens are feeling now is no greater that the dread felt by hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who in recent weeks waited in terror for the soldiers to break down their doors and invade their homes in the middle of the night, to search, trash, destroy, humiliate, and then snatch a member of their household. The fear we’re experiencing is no greater that the fear felt by Palestinian children and teens, several of whom were killed needlessly by Israeli Defense Forces fire in recent weeks. The trepidation Israelis feel is certainly less than that felt by Gaza residents, who have no Color Red warnings, no “secure spaces,” and no Iron Dome to save them, only hundreds of scary sorties by the Israel Air Force that end in destruction and the death of innocents, including the elderly, women, and children, who have already been killed during this operation, as it during all its predecessors.”

    Shavit before he started barking at the moon
    ” The rocket attacks on Israel are an attack of chaos on order. In the old Middle East, the constant threat facing the Jewish state was invasion by regular armies. In the new Middle East, Israel faces the danger of irregular forces from irregular entities disrupting domestic order. The Gulf wars and the Arab Spring have broken down most of our old enemies — Iraq, Syria and Libya — but another enemy has risen up: chaos.
    Up until June 2014, we managed to prevent the chaos from spreading over our borders. But now, Hamas’ rockets are bringing that disorder into our orderly bubble. The combination of fanaticism, desperation and rocket capabilities are only the precursor to what we can expect over the next years and decades. Yesterday’s complacency is on its way out, making way for awareness of unending regional violence and disorder. ”

    Zionism was always about patching things up and moving forward. They conquered Gaza like that in 1967. Why they did I really wonder. Because it’s going to bring them down.

    They are now trying to close Pandora’s box. Let me be clear here. Let me finish.
    It is dreadful for Zionism. And Shavit and Schumer and the various rabbis in NYC have had to drop the pretence and come out as they really are. Very distasteful.
    And Mrs Yossi Israeli is asking lots of questions. Why can’t the IDF deliver?
    Bibi deserves it. It’s his ideology that’s in bits.

      I agree there is a huge element of cowardice in them. They pick on unarmed civilians especially children, and show their manliness to them. Even before the war, their thugs used a disgusting brutality on young kids, near fences, walls, harassed them, kidnapped them, and abused them with impunity, and blessings from the top branch of their government, to do so.

    The NBC website did a profile on a young woman whose twitter feed is one of the ones I have been following to keep track of what is going on in Gaza. Her posts have been particularly heart wrenching because of her youth and eloquence. At first I was using Twitter to get accurate information about the madness in Gaza now, but it has turned into a totally different experience: going on line every few hours to see if people I admire are still alive. It is maddening that this carnage is going on. I was reluctant to link to the Gaza Twitter feed because they started to warn each other to turn off their GPS signals because Israel was using those signals to find people to bomb. But since Farah’s story is on the NBC site, I guess it is safe to link to that.

      Just the song is somewhat disappointing of Assaf, he could have said more, raising of heads and dignity won’t buy the Palestinians a cup of coffee. He pussy-foots with his rah rah song but doesn’t actually say much beyond raising heads and a passing remark about stones. His family being fervent pro-Fatah and his main sponsor, the Saudi media and recording conglomerate may have had something to do with it.

      In contrast, you have the Gaza song released last week by the Lebanese Julia Boutros (her mother is Armenian-Palestinian) that doesn’t mince her words about what the Palestinians should do. Al-Mayadeen has been playing it hourly since its release:

        Same SDD from too many– Assad and Assaf and Hamas and Arafat are all demonized because they “weren’t good enough, or Palestinian enough” for the PEACE that they are entitled to as HUMAN BEINGS on this planet.

    Blitzer is all excited that the Ayatollah Khameini has called on all Muslims to help arm Hamas against the brutality of the occupiers.
    If Israel does not watch out this could turn deadly for them, if certain extremists join or help Hamas. There is a limit to their terroristic attacks on civilians, under the guise of “defending themselves”, and after a while it will only enrage those who already dislike them, to do something about it.
    Israel is asking for trouble and although well deserved, I hope this situation does not get worse. Even more civilians are going to pay for the Israel’s madness.
