Blast hurts 5 kids, Israel blamed

2012-07-07 14:33

Gaza City - An explosion injured five Palestinian children in the central Gaza Strip on Saturday, a hospital said, blaming Israeli tank fire.

The children - aged 4 to 10 and from the same family - were in light to moderate condition after being hit by a shell fired by an Israeli tank east of Deir al-Balah, according to the al-Quds hospital in the town.

Witnesses said, however, that there were no Israeli tanks in the area at the time and that the explosion might have been caused by an old bomb.

An Israeli army spokesperson said she was not familiar with the incident.

The Israeli military maintains an exclusion zone just inside the Gaza border that it has declared off-limits to Palestinians, and troops frequently carry out military activity in the area.

      Unfortunately Ziyaad, Palestinians teach their children at Kindergarten to fight Israel. Think about that.

      If a tank shell went through this building there wouldn't be any kids left, no injured kids only very dead ones. This is a BS story, the kids were probably playing the their dads explosives. But what the hell blame Israel.

    Building ‘suicide/homicide’ explosion-belts is a hazardous , but favourite pastime amongst Islamic extremists.

      "BECAUSE WE KILLED YOUR WHOLE FAMILY" Another blood libel… You can’t have Genocide or ethnic cleansing if the Palestinians are not dying in mass like the Holocaust, Rwanda, or Congo... or even the way Qadafi or Syria were/are killing their own. If anything Israel has always wanted and voted for peace. Palestinians attacks, deaths and their use of human shields (Children) is a war crime done by Hamas! You want to see an area cleansed then where did all the Christians and Jews that lived in the Arab world go? Why are Gays disappearing in Iran and Saudi… why are women stoned for being raped in this world you seem to represent? Israel has a 20% Muslim population who earn a better living then any of their neighbours... who vote and live anywhere in Israel... if anything your comment of human rights atrocities are more true to Israel's neighbours rather than Israel... Ask yourself this Salma, If Israel is committing genocide against Palestine then WHY is the population growing so fast? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_the_Palestinian_territories#Population_growth_rate_2 Do some research; it will open your eyes and help you realize that you also have been duped by the fifth column and its twisted propaganda machine against Israel.

      Salma, that's not funny. Not sure why you think it is.

    The Timeslive site reported as a headline "Five gaza Children Killed" and then proceeded with the exact same story verbatim as above article. They were slightly injured, not killed.
