Officials: Latest Israeli airstrike in Gaza bring death toll to 17

The latest Israeli airstrike in Gaza killed a 12-year-old boy Sunday, bringing the death toll to 17 from two days of bombing, Palestinian medical sources said.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment on the latest bombing, which also left four others wounded, according to the Palestinian sources.

But the military, on its website, said the airstrikes are a response to more than 130 rocket attacks from Gaza into Israel.

The airstrikes began Friday afternoon.

    @Saywhat...LMAO @ your depiction of Palestinians "hight tech" resistance being ripped-off. LMAO. "God bless Israel" somehow loses it's meaning when faced with reality.

      I would give your award back to you, with the recommendation to see a dentist to quiet the messages you are receiving in the fillings of your teeth.
      There's a big clue right there.

      @philip, the only thing I can give you credit for today is using your regular name. It is a well known fact that you and Mary act like eagles and fly into these blog boards, use other names or symbols, and shat all over the place. There is a special place in hell for you.

    ...but Mary. God has in fact cursed both this land, (the earth) and this lands inhabitants.(including humans) "With the sweat of your brow all of your days you will be filled with TOIL." God said to Adam after he, rather than listenning to his God, listened to his woman, who herself was cursed with "birthpangs". (Not to mention being cursed with the woman being dominated by the man, as we have seen throughout US history)

      I suppose God should have created women to have nothing in their brainpans other than blind, stupid devotion to men.
      I know of one case where he actually did this.

    When will we learn that you do not get Isreal upset or mad? They operate on different standards and if threatened will blast you before you know what happened.

    @ saywhat, very observant. Media is the voice of those who are controlling us! even tho we don't know it's happening.
    Media will post an article with the spin or *facts* as the *facts* they want you to believe they are. Not the REAL facts.
    Was that confusing ? lol ūüėČ

      I'm too tired to try and figure it out.
      Perhaps one day you'll let me know.
      Good night, dear heart.

      Ah, but then you wouldn't have the joy of figuring it out for yourself, would you–the same way you made me teach myself to print ¬©.
      I knew you would see that reply to Mary, but I didn't think you'd see it so quickly.
      Just remember the statement that "PGFWABF" followed, and follow the Yellow Brick Road.
      Love you,
