Dozens die as fighting intensifies in Gaza; children killed at refugee camp

Jerusalem (CNN) -- Despite calls for a new cease-fire, fighting intensified in Gaza on Monday and Tuesday morning, with Palestinians saying more than two dozen people died as rockets or mortars struck a refugee camp, a hospital and the center of Gaza City.

Eighteen people died as powerful and continuous air strikes rained down on Gaza City early Tuesday morning, the Palestinian Health Authority reported. And the Israeli military reported that 10 of its soldiers were killed Monday.

Al Aqsa TV reported that Israeli strikes hit the Ministry of Finance in western Gaza and the house of Ismail Haniyeh, a senior political leader of Hamas. A radio station run by Hamas was bombed.

Ten people, including eight children, were killed Monday when shells hit a refugee camp near the beach in Gaza where parents went to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, a Muslim holiday that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, the Gaza Health Ministry said.

More fodder for the anti-Israel left to use against them.

What a complete mess!
Character still matters.  It always matters.

What types of stupid a**es would go out and 'celebrate' the end of Ramadan, in the middle of a flipping armed conflict?

Religious nutz....that's who.

How preposterous would it be to suggest that armed Hamas militants 'forced' them to do so in the refugee camp....at the point of a gun?
