More Palestinians joined on Friday the procession of martyrs raising the number to over 1130 people.
On the 21st day of the Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip, Israeli Air Force, the Navy and Tanks continued bombing Gaza and struck some 40 targets throughout the Strip overnight Friday, including a mosque, the 14th since the beginning of the offensive.
Palestinian sources said a 14-year-old was killed and several other people were wounded during an IAF attack on the Shabura refugee camp in Rafah, southern Gaza. Medical sources in Gaza reported that 23 bodies have been found under the rubble of a building in Gaza City's Tel Hawa neighborhood after a day that saw heavy clashes between Israeli occupation troops and Palestinian resistance fighters.
Israel admitted that an occupation army battalion commander and two other soldiers were wounded in separate "incidents" during fighting with the resistance fighters in Gaza on Thursday.
Since Israel unleashed Operation Cast Lead on December 27, at least 1,133 Palestinians, including 335 children, have been killed and another 5,130 wounded.
The occupation army announced that it would adhere to a four-hour “humanitarian truce” between 10 A.M. and 2 P.M. on Friday, to allow free flow of aid into the Gaza Strip, though many Palestinians were killed in the last days during so-called “humanitarian truce” hours.
The Israeli offensive has sparked widespread concern about a humanitarian crisis breaking out in one of the world's most densely populated places where the vast majority of the 1.5 million population depends on foreign aid. Tons of aid went up in flames on Thursday after an Israeli strike hit a UN compound, setting alight a warehouse.
Meanwhile, the occupation army locked down the occupied West Bank for 48 hours after Hamas called for a day of "wrath" against the offensive in Gaza that on Thursday saw one of its top leaders, interior minister Said Siyam, killed in an air strike.
Siyam is the most senior leader killed in the aggression. He was killed his son and his brother, Ayad and the head of Hamas' security organization in Gaza.
Hamas's armed wing on Thursday vowed to avenge the killing of Siyam. "His blood will not have been shed in vain," the Ezzedine Al-Qassam Brigades said in a statement. "We will respond with actions, not words," it vowed.
