Just days ago, the seige on Gaza was broken
by the Gaza Freedom Marchers
, who faced down serious violence
from the Egyptian cops who injured dozens, and attempts by Mubarak to frustrate their arrival in Gaza. Mubarak is one of America and Israel's favourite dictatorships, and is busily constructing a steel wall to prevent another Rafah
, complementing the torrent of steel rain from Israeli jets intended to prevent Palestinians from smuggling food and cattle into Gaza, where millions are dependent on food aid. So this intervention was directed against an intense form of international aggression against the Palestinians, promulgated by Israel, supported by the Quad, and upheld by pro-US despots throughout the Middle East. The crossing was therefore no mean accomplishment. Today, however, Israel has decided to reassert its right to tyrannise the Gazans with new air strikes
A massive explosion took place few moments ago western Gaza City, in Tal Al Hawa neighborhood. Eyewitness reported that Israeli F16s launched an aerial attack midnight. The attack was followed by a series of air raids.
These attacks are in addition to the usual run of attacks
on tunnels designed to circumvent the criminal blockade, and could well foreshadow another full-scale military operation against Gaza. Watch this space.
