Don't forget the Gaza Strip

While the world's attention is on Lebanon, we should remember also that Israel is also attacking the Gaza Strip.

Radio New Zealand reports that Israel fires about 150 artillery shells into the tiny occupied territory every day, and has killed about 140 people over the last month. Several times per week Israel sends attack helicopters over Gaza. Deliveries of essentials like food have been virtually halted, and the power station has been bombed, leaving people without clean water and electricity.
