1000s flee for cover as Israel resumes air strikes

Gaza City - Thousands of Palestinians fled their homes in neighbourhoods of eastern Gaza City on Tuesday, carrying bags of clothes, pillows and mattresses after renewed Israeli air strikes, witnesses said.

An AFP reporter saw hundreds of Palestinians streaming out of Shejaiya, one of the areas worst affected by more than a month of fighting between Israel and Hamas.

Thousands more were leaving the areas of Zeitun and Shaaf, alarmed by a series of explosions, and heading towards shelters in UN schools, the witnesses said.

More than 2 000 people - most of them Palestinian civilians - have died in the Gaza conflict which broke out on 8 July.

When will the thirst of the heartless Zionists be quenched.

I read all the various statements. Its amazing how we tend to play the blame game. Both sides are not committed to a peaceful settlement. The same could have been said when SA got rid of previous government SA could've ended in the same bloodbath. Thank goodness we chose a peaceful path. The same can't be said for both parties in question. What it will take is for both parties to change attitude.

End Time Sign – WAR Matthew 24:6-7 ...'And ye shall hear of wars ... For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.' End Time Sign - VIOLENCE AND SEXUAL IMMORALITY Matthew 24:37 ...'But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.' What was it like in Noah's day and Lot's day? Two Bible verses to see what it was like. Genesis 6:13 tells us that in Noah's day the "earth was filled with VIOLENCE." Read Jude 1:7 End Time Sign – EARTHQUAKES Matthew 24:7 ...'and earthquakes in divers places.'Remember, these signs are to intensify during the last days, and that is exactly what is happening with earthquakes, VIOLENCE…. End Time Sign - INCREASE OF KNOWLEDGE Daniel 12:4 ...'even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.' End Time Sign – FAMINE Matthew 24:7 ...'and there shall be famine.' To many to mention. With regards to Israel- well since 1948 many have tried to wipe them off the map. God says in The Bible) it ain’t going to happen, period.
