GAZA, (PIC)– Three resistance fighters were killed in an Israeli air raid on central Gaza Strip at a late hour on Monday night, medical sources told the PIC.

Adham Abu Salmiya, the media coordinator of medical services, said on Tuesday that the Israeli raid targeted the three fighters east of Breij refugee camp.

Israeli reconnaissance planes earlier fired a missile at the house of a Qassam Brigades (armed wing of Hamas) member in Nusseirat refugee camp also in central Gaza.

The PIC reporter said that the blast caused heavy material damage but no casualties.

B’tselem: 6 Palestinians killed for every Israeli

NAZARETH, (PIC)– The Israeli B’tselem human rights organization published a report comparing the Palestinian and Israeli death counts since the second intifada erupted on Sept. 29, 2000.

The report shows that Israeli occupation forces killed 6,731 Palestinians, 3,171 of them under the age of 18.

According to the report, more than 6 Palestinians were killed for every Israeli death, as the Israeli death count since the second intifada was 1,083.

The death count of Palestinians who were not involved in operations or clashes with the Israeli military reached 2,996, while 2,193 died in clashes with Israeli soldiers. The organization was unable to determine exactly how 694 Palestinians died.

248 elements from the Palestinian police force in Gaza and 240 resistance fighters were killed in Israel’s last war against the Gaza Strip.

Despite the large number of Palestinian casualties, right-wing Israeli Knesset members are calling for more Palestinian deaths.

MK Michael Ben-Ari from the far-right National Union Party said: “From the Shalit affair, we realized one soldier is equal to thousands of dead terrorists … so killing 6,000 of the enemy and their supporters is a small and insufficient amount in a war against a violent enemy…”

He added that to eradicate “terrorism” 500 and not 6 Palestinians should be killed against every Israeli.
