Israel - Hamas conflict
by Alessandro Sala

Since the end of December 2008 the Gaza Strip has been under heavy attack by the Israeli army. The death toll has reached more than 1200 with many civilians. -The Gaza medical authorities are reporting 1284 deaths, including at least 850 civilians. Israel is facing intensifying accusations from around the world that its offensive is disproportionate to the damage caused by Hamas rocket fire into Israel, and that it has created a humanitarian crisis in Gaza. In Geneva, the United Nations Human Rights Council broadly condemned Israel's military offensive in Gaza, saying it "resulted in massive violations of human rights of the Palestinian people." The council voted 33 to 1 for the resolution, with Canada the only opposing vote. The United States is not a member.
