Update on al-Shifa hospital report: found one link/source but it's not MSM, and I believe biased in Palestinian favour. Will be scouring high and low on the net to see what Harry thought was credible reports in this regard.

I haven't logged into ATS in a long time but have stayed a daily reader and I just wanted to say thanks to the OP and those posting updates for this awesome thread. It makes it so much easier to stay up to date on this topic close to my heart without having to wade through all the biased nonsense out there already.

Israeli army closes roads

USA Today article covering Saturdays events

Israel steps up Air strikes while troops assemble


While Israeli officials maintained that they did not seek war, the intent to send a loud warning to Hamas was evident. By nightfall Friday, the Israeli military said it had closed three roads leading to Gaza, in a further sign of a possible ground invasion, and a spokesman said paratroopers and infantry soldiers were in southern Israel awaiting orders from political leaders.

I'll second that.....Great thread, cheers OP.

BBC coverage seems a bit biased as usual.....Video links with those expressing pro-Palestinian opinions seem to be much more prone to sudden failure than links to those with pro-Israeli sentiments.

Israel has now deployed a 5th Iron Dome battery outside of Tel Aviv.

dailystar.com.lb

JERUSALEM: The Israeli military rushed a fifth Iron Dome anti-missile battery into service on Saturday and deployed it in the Tel Aviv area, the army said, underscoring concerns over the range of Palestinian rockets.

Islamist militants in the Gaza Strip have fired three rockets at Tel Aviv in the past 48 hours. No one was injured and no damage was reported, but the fact that Israel's commercial capital is in the firing line has alarmed many Israelis.

The fifth Iron Dome was not scheduled to come into service until early 2013.


The article also states that the Iron Dome missiles only fire when it calculates the in-coming rocket will land in a built up area.

I believe I read yesterday that this one is designed to better target long range rockets. I'm trying to find that link now. Found it.

Gaza Update: Deaths and Injuries

Dr. Ashraf Al-Qedra, from Al-Shifa Hospital advised the following in a Press release: “The latest death toll is 39 Deaths (5 are children under the age of 2 years) and 340 injuries, 80% of them are civilians. Palestinian hospitals are now suffering from a lack of medicine and medical supplies. Gazans are asked to donate blood, and to volunteer to help with nursing. Israel is using chemical and perhaps biological weapons in Gaza, we saw shrapnel with toxic properties in the bodies of injured and dead children and there are strange smells in the air.”


I'm wondering, how can I find these press releases??

Sorry guys, trying to help follow up on something but alas I'm finding brick walls. Google appears to not like me.

Obama talks with Turkish prime minister.


"The two leaders shared their concerns about the dangers to civilian populations on both sides and expressed their common desire to see an end to the violence. The President and Prime Minister agreed that the continued spiral of violence jeopardizes prospects for a durable, lasting peace in the region. The President underscored his commitment to advancing the goal of Middle East peace. The President’s call to Prime Minister Erdogan follows his outreach to counterparts in Israel and Egypt on November 14."

Please note the title of the thread:

There are many who appreciated the intent of this thread and there are numerous other threads where anyone can offer further comment and opinion on unfolding events.

Anything other than sourced updates holds the potential for consideration as being off topic and removed as such.

Irish Citizen reports from Gaza city hospital


"The situation is intensifying here in the Gaza Strip, with constant waves of Israeli airstrikes and fears of a ground invasion. Having visited Al Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, I can confirm that Palestinian civilians, including women and children, are bearing the brunt of these disproportionate and indiscriminate attacks. Israel is, once again, violating its obligations under international humanitarian and human rights law. The international community must intervene to put an end to these attacks and defend the rights of the people of Gaza."


No safe haven for Gazans
