The attack hit a city centre street, with homes and shops, in a five-minute raid just after midnight.

Horror

It destroyed two buildings and another one about 45 yards away.

Gaza officials said 16 women and 10 children were among those killed, with more than 50 people wounded.

शांति कब तक?

पश्चिम एशिया में युद्ध विराम हो जाने से दुनिया ने चैन की सांस ली है. लेकिन यह युद्ध विराम स्थाई होगा इसकी संभावना कम है. यह शांति कब तक रहेगी, इसे लेकर संशय बरकरार है. इसका कारण यह है कि फिलिस्तीन के साथ ही इस्लामिक दुनिया में कुछ लोग हैं जो न स्वयं शांति से रहते हैं न दूसरे को रहने देते हैं. वे किसी अन्य के स्वरूप और अस्तित्व को स्वीकार नहीं करते. सबको अपने रंग में रंगना चाहते हैं.

हमास-इजराइल संघर्ष विराम कब तक?

इजराइल-हमास युद्ध में भारत का बौद्धिक और राजनीतिक समाज भी बंटा नजर आया। वामपंथी और समाजवादी विचारधारा के लोग जहां फिलीस्तीन पर हो रहे हमले को लेकर इजराइल को दोषी ठहराते रहे, वहीं राष्ट्रवादी विचारधारा का तर्क रहा कि इजराइल को अपनी रक्षा करने और अपने खिलाफ होने वाले हर हमले का जवाब देने का हक है। दिलचस्प यह है कि चूकि हमास के हमले में सौम्या संतोष मारी गई थीं, इसलिए केरल की वामपंथी सरकार ने ना तो उनके परिवार के लिए संवेदना के दो शब्द इस्तेमाल किये, ना ही उनके निधन के लिए हमास को जिम्मेदार ठहराया।
