IAF today in an attempt to assassinate another Haas leader , missed their target and struck 9 civilians.The civilians were a family of nine people.
The blast killed the mother, father and seven children. One child 4 years old was torn in two from the blast.
Sharply escalating its military campaign, Israel dropped a quarter-ton bomb on a Gaza home today to assassinate top Hamas fugitives, killing nine
civilians as Islamic militant leaders got away.
The nine dead were all members of the same family, including the parents and seven of their children, Palestinian officials said.
The body of a four-year-old boy, torn in half, was among those pulled out of the rubble.

Even as Arab states softened the UN request for council action in Gaza, the United States UN rep John Bolton still vetoed the call. This is
becoming ridiculous. These children should not be going through this. Collectively punishing these children is a crime. If they are going to
assassinate someone they should send someone in on the ground and do it in person and not like the cowards they are being by attacking innocent people
from 10,000 feet in the air. This is an outrage.
