Palestinian boy Mohammed Haddad, 5, injured during an Israeli airstrike, is treated in Shifa hospital in Gaza City, Sunday Nov. 19, 2006. An Israeli aircraft fired a missile at a car traveling in Gaza City, wounding nine people, including two Hamas militants inside the vehicle, hospital officials said. The Israeli army confirmed the airstrike, but gave no details on the target.

BEIT LAHIYA, Gaza Strip – Hundreds of Palestinians serving as human shields guarded the homes of two top militants Sunday, a new tactic that forced Israel to call off missile strikes on the buildings and re-evaluate a mainstay of its aerial campaign in Gaza. “Hundreds of Palestinians serving as human shields guarded the homes of two top militants Sunday, a new tactic that forced Israel to call off missile strikes on the buildings and re-evaluate a mainstay of its aerial campaign in Gaza.”

The crowd chanted anti-Israel and anti-American slogans, and people said they were prepared to give their lives to protect the home. “Yes to martyrdom. No to surrender,” the crowd chanted.

In recent months, the Israeli air force has repeatedly struck the homes of militants after warning residents by phone to clear out. Israeli security officials said they did not know how to respond to the human shield tactic, but pressed ahead with other airstrikes Sunday. In Gaza City, an aircraft fired a missile at a car, killing one man and wounding nine, including two Hamas militants. Four of the wounded were children, ages 5 to 16, who suffered shrapnel injuries, hospital officials said.

The military said the target of the strike was a vehicle carrying senior members of the Hamas rocket launching operation.

If Israel is so well informed about the whereabouts of Hamas resistance fighters, then why does Israel fail every time it occupies and raids Gaza or Rafah or Beit Hanoun in eliminating the resistance?

And they use the latest in weapons, courtesy of Uncle Sam!

With such claimed “pinpoint” accuracy, one should conclude that Palestinian resistance would’ve been eliminated by now. Yet with every Israeli invasion, whether in Gaza, Beit Hanoun or Lebanon, we only hear that civilians were murdered. But now we know that Israel’s goal is nothing more than terrorizing Palestinian civilians into submission or expulsion from Palestine… so that their dream of stealing the rest of Palestine is complete.

And once again, Palestinians will reatliate. On the news, however, we will hear that Palestinians are terrorizing the armed thugs living in illegal settlements. And the cycle will continue.
