The Australian has quite a conservative pedigree so read the following to see what it has reported!
The Australian’s UN aid agency and Red Cross slam Israel over Gaza (extracts follows):
The main UN aid agency in the Gaza Strip is suspending operations after an Israeli tank shell hit one of its convoys during the ceasefire period, killing two drivers.
Richard Miron, a UN spokesman, said the Israeli army had been notified in advance about the UNRWA convoy, which was hit as it approached the Erez crossing with Israel. Two Palestinian forklift drivers were killed.
With the Czech Republic currently holding the EU presidency, its foreign minister Karel Schwarzenberg said: “After the striking of the UN school*, this is another terrible episode, which moreover occurred during the three-hour ceasefire declared by Israel.
* Israel had initially claimed (as per its usual bull) Hamas was firing mortars from the school but the UN man on the spot said that's sheer utter bullsh*t (kaytee's choice of words but with same meaning). Robert Fisk has been right - those Israelis have a supermarket full of canned lies for their atrocities - meant of course principally for their benefactors, the gullible and willing-captive Americans.
And the Red Cross accused Israel of "unacceptable" conduct and breaching international humanitarian law after discovering four emaciated children living next to the corpses of their mothers and other adults in bomb-shattered houses in Gaza City.
The International Committee of the Red Cross said that it had spent four days seeking Israeli guarantees of safe passage so that it could gain access to the houses in the badly damaged Zaytun neighbourhood of the city. It was finally allowed to send in a rescue team and four Palestine Red Crescent Society ambulances yesterday afternoon.
In one house they discovered four small children, alive but too weak to stand, next to the bodies of their dead mothers. In all there were 12 dead bodies lying on mattresses.
In another house they found 15 survivors of the Israeli bombardment, several of them wounded, and in a third, three corpses.
Israeli military scums!
Also from The Australian - Israel shelled Gaza house crowded with civilians: UN.
UN has cited witnesses saying Israeli forces evacuated about 110 Palestinians into a house which they then repeatedly shelled 24 hours later, killing about 30 people.
It said that "according to several testimonies, on 4 January Israeli foot soldiers evacuated approximately 110 Palestinians into a single-residence house in Zeitun (half of whom were children) warning them to stay indoors. Twenty-four hours later, Israeli forces shelled the home repeatedly, killing approximately 30".
The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs called it "one of the gravest incidents since the beginning of operations" by Israeli forces in Gaza on December 27.
"Those who survived and were able walked two kilometres to Salah Ed Din road before being transported to hospital in civilian vehicles. Three children, the youngest of whom was five months old, died upon arrival at the hospital," OCHA said in a report on the situation in the battered Gaza Strip.
Heading the Palestinians into a killing chamber for easier targetting, like once their European forefathers were headed by Nazis into the gas chambers.
Neo-Nazi animals but then that would be insulting the animals.
F* Baby killers!
