Timeline since ceasefire on January 18 edit
It is important to be precise about the sequence of events when reporting a "tit-for-tat" storyline.
UN OCHA Field Updates from Gaza include reports that:
"One Palestinian farmer was killed on the morning of 18 January in Khuza'a east of Khan Yunis following the Israeli-declared cease-fire."
"On 19 January, a Palestinian farmer was killed by Israeli gunfire east of Jabalia. The same day, Palestinian militants fired a number of mortars towards Israel and also shot at Israeli troops still inside the Gaza Strip. No injuries or damage were reported."
"Four Palestinians were injured on 22 January by a shell fired from an Israeli gunboat off the Gaza coast. The same day, a house was set on fire by a shell fired from an Israeli gunboat. No injuries were reported. Also on 22 January, IDF troops shot and injured a child east of Gaza City near the border."

War Crimes edit
So let me get this straight. An israeli air strike killed seven schoolchildren and two others. Their excuse: a single Hamas member was riding a motorcycle nearby.—The preceding M.T.R (talk • contribs)comment was added by
War Crimes Investigation into Israel's actions in Gaza edit
It's about time. Independent,impartial investigations must be done. If the US military can investigate,initate trials and punish war criminals in their own ranks then so can Israel. If Israel is a true democracy and nation that practices the "rule of law" as opposed to corruption then they will do what is right. No one should be "above the law". That was the whole point of punishing the Nazis in World War II. I hope Dr. Rice(US rep to the UN) and the UN will continue to demand investigations and not cave in to lobbist in the US. Hypocracy must end in these issues. Also, those who fire rockets into Israeli civilian areas must be held accountable to be fair to all sides. I also hope the Israeli group which recently found Israeli government involvement in covering up illegal land seizure in the West Bank will go forward with exposing the wrongdoers.—The preceding 22.214.171.124 (talk • contribs)comment was added by
Jews have been victims of genocide, since they know the effects of this cruel crime more than most people, why must they do the same to the Palestinians? and please don't say they are not, because hundreds of thousands have been driven from their homes, killed, humiliated, imprisoned and who knows what els. Was nothing learned from world war 2?
