Israel is once again attacking Gaza. Nearly four years after the devastating Operation Cast Lead, Israeli forces are declaring their plans for a “ground invasion” of Gaza while engaging in massive bombing raids.
The Ministry of Education and Higher Education in Gaza have suspended classes in all schools and universities across Gaza. The death toll is increasing, and rapidly. More than 9 people have been confirmed dead, including Ranan Arafat, a 4 year old girl.
Israel extrajudicially assassinated Hamas military leader Ahmed Jabari this morning and the bombs keep dropping as Israel announces it is calling up its military reserves.
So far the Canadian government is silent yet has repeatedly affirmed its support for Israeli occupation and apartheid.
Come out to demand an end to the attacks on Gaza and justice for Palestine!
