Over the past 21 days 1,133 Palestinians have been killed by Israel, including 346 children and 105 women. 5,200 have been injured. As of this morning, these are the latest reported casualties. I add my voice to the many thousands to speak out in condemnation at the on-going assault by Israel on Gaza.
The latest attack, this time on the UN Headquarters in Gaza, on the hospitals and medical centres, is outrageous. The use of white phosphorus - a chemical weapon - against innocent civilians, is also indefensible and must be condemned.
