Gaza 2012

Gaza, Israeli attacksThe latest airstrike was conducted late Wednesday night, according to Palestinian security officials, AFP reported. At least 26 Palestinians have been killed and dozens others injured in Israeli attacks on the coastal sliver since March 9.
Despite international pressure, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said last Sunday that Tel Aviv would continue its airstrikes against Gaza ‘as long as necessary.’
Israeli warplanes and ground forces have been frequently attacking Gaza since the end of Tel Aviv’s December 2008-January 2009 war on the enclave, which killed more than 1,400 Palestinians. Most of the victims of the attacks are civilians, including women and children.
Gaza has been under an Israeli siege since 2007, when democratically-elected Hamas took control of the tiny Palestinian territory.
The full-scale land, aerial, and naval siege has turned the enclave into the world's largest open-air prison.
