Millions of people are expected to protest against the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip throughout the Middle East, in fact, the world. Meanwhile, aid that was supposed to be delivered to Gaza through Egypt has been postponed till Saturday. More Palestinian civilians were killed and nothing is spared, neither mosques nor churches nor hospitals. Yet the resistance continues…


Palestinian Ministry of Health: The number of Palestinians killed and wounded in the Israeli war on Gaza rose to 4,137 killed, and over 13,000 wounded. In the West Bank, 60 were killed and more than 1,250 wounded. However, the killing of 500 Palestinians in an Israeli strike at a Gaza hospital on Tuesday, in addition to the killing of many other Palestinians in the Strip will raise the casualty count dramatically on Wednesday.
