By Palestine Chronicle Staff  

Though Israel has been pushing more military vehicles into Gaza, it has failed to establish defensible military positions as Palestinian resistors continue to show extraordinary resilience on the ground.

Meanwhile, Israeli attacks targeting civilian infrastructure and homes carried on unabated, killing and wounding thousands.

Israel has, thus far, killed over 10,022 Palestinians in Gaza, including 4,800 children and 2,550, and wounded more than 25,000. Palestinian Ministry of Health’s reports and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.
