Thousands of Palestinians flee as Israel intensifies assault on Gaza – BBC News

Israel has intensified its assault on Gaza with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warning that the biggest offensive in years will continue.

Violent clashes between Israeli troops and Palestinians have spread across much of the occupied West Bank.

It’s estimated ten thousand Palestinians have fled their homes to escape the Israeli bombardment.

More rockets have been fired by Palestinian militants towards Israel.

At least 122 people have been killed in Gaza and 9 have died in Israel since the fighting began.

  1. If a religion constantly puts up their minority card,then look at societies where they are in majority and do the same.

  2. Everyone is blaming UN. But they don’t know that the U.S. is the supporter of the war.

  3. Why is the world reacting so strongly against Israel when it tries to defend itself? Hamas started firing rockets at Israel after the violent al Aqsa mosque riots, and then Israel started bombing Gaza in retaliation.

    Hamas intentionally target Israeli civilians in its rocket fire, while Israel only fires at Hamas targets (many of which were intermingled with civilians, a deliberate strategy by the terrorists) and also gives prior warnings before the airstrikes.

    There is simply no moral equivalence between a democratic state fighting to defend its citizens, and a terrorist organisation which intentionally targets civilians and hides among its own civilians.

    May Israel finish off Hamas this time round. Just end the threat once and for all. God bless Israel and the IDF. 🇮🇱

  4. They hate each other with a vengeance, good luck getting a diplomatic end.

  5. Israel is doing well, however we should not do any comments since Israel was facing Hamas militant from many years. If palestine population have value of their life then on other hand Israel have right to keep safe their peoples as well..

  6. Hamas and Gaza Strip should be Nuked..just another sewer Shithole like India and Pakistan…full of deadbeat lowlife

  7. Very sad to see deaths of innocent people die and families crying for their loved ones. Only divine intervention can stop this fighting. All are children of Prophet Abharam but fighting for power and authority. May God stop this fighting, we pray in Jesus name.

  8. Now that the political pandemic panic has subsided; the real virus resurfaces. Thanks Joe!
