Jawher Baalusha and her sisters were killed during an Israeli air raid while they were sleeping together in their bedroom. Medics stated that the raid had targeted a mosque near their home in Jabalia. (Abid Katib/Getty Images)

More Palestinian "terrorists" killed and wounded by the
Israeli military in Gaza. You will never see such photographs or journalistic coverage in the regular U.S. media.

Over 550 Palestinians (at least 200 of them civilians and 59 of them children) have been killed by the Israeli military in its week-long assault on the Gaza Strip, under the regular U.S. diplomatic cover. The U.S. continues to block the United Nations Security Council from issuing a call for an immediate ceasefire, as the U.S. also did during the Summer 2006 Lebanon war.

Israeli deaths, civilian and military, number less than dozen.
