It is quite disappointing that the Canadian media is not reporting the following story.
It is the media censorship of this story that is affecting public understanding of the need for theUnited Church's boycott position.
Palestinian sources report that Israel has launched over 58 air and ground assaults on the Gaza Strip in June that killed over a dozen Palestinians and injured many others.
The media silence is irresponsible and makes them complicit.
Israeli airstrikes pound northern Gaza Strip, injuring several people
Israeli warplanes have launched at least three airstrikes on several targets in the northern Gaza Strip, injuring several Palestinians, security sources say.
Israeli F-16 warplanes carried out the attacks on the blockaded coastal enclave on Monday night. Several powerful explosions were also heard in the area. The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas says Israel launched over 58 air and ground assaults on the Gaza Strip in June that killed over a dozen Palestinians and injured many others. The Israeli military frequently bombs the Gaza Strip, saying the actions are being conducted for defensive purposes. However, disproportionate force is always used, in violation of international law, and civilians are often killed or injured. Gaza has been blockaded since 2007 [sic - 2006], which is a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.
