 November 18, 2012. Another media building, the Hussari Tower, 
was also targeted, wounding seven journalists in all.

Each days brings new horrors. Sunday was the deadliest day since the
 beginning of this escalation, and the deadliest day since Operation Cast
 Lead. The level of destruction all over the Gaza Strip is appalling. Bulldozers
 were working in different places to dig under the rubble to find bodies.
The Al-Dalou family was almost entirely wiped out, with 11 members, including
 four women and four children, killed when an Israeli missile destroyed their 
home in the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood of Gaza City on Sunday afternoon.
Israel clearly targeted Gaza’s media, with the two towers which host many
 TV channels and agencies being hit. Seven journalists were injured, one of
 them had his leg amputated.
To recap until now: women, including pregnant women, children, and 
babies have been killed. Mosques and a church have been damaged. 
Several hospitals and schools, a graveyard, sports facilities, civilian government
 buildings, and police stations have been targeted. Journalists and medics 
have been targeted and injured.
According to most recent reports, some 84  Palestinians have been killed 
and hundreds injured, the vast majority of them civilians.
This is not Israel defending itself, this is Israel attacking with full force a
 population which has no shelter and nowhere to escape. 
The figures speak for themselves.
