Gaza Day 15

Israel Tells Gazans: Prepare For Escalation Of Military Offensive

Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas predicted a "waterfall of blood"

Defying the international calls for a cease-fire, Israel threatened to launch a "new phase" in its offensive.

In the day's bloodiest incident, an Israeli tank shell killed nine people in a garden outside a home in the northern Gaza town of Jebaliya, said Adham el-Hakim, administrator of Kamal Adwan hospital.

Palestinian paramedics said the nine people killed in the garden were from the same clan and included two children and two women.

Bush call halted US voting for ceasefire
Condoleezza Rice, the US Secretary of State, was forced to step back from voting in favour of the Gaza ceasefire resolution at the UN Security Council after orders from Washington, diplomatic sources said yesterday.
With only 10 days to go George W. Bush can still cause incalculable evil.
