Israeli war planes' strike Gaza wounding 40 Palestinians
 
AFP, Friday 22 Aug 2014
 
A powerful Israeli air strike levelled a house in Gaza City late Friday, wounding 40 Palestinians, local emergency services said.

Witnesses said a drone fired two rockets at the two-storey property before an F16 warplane dropped a large bomb.

Emergency services told AFP that 40 people from the building and neighbouring buildings were wounded in the strike.

A witness at the site said the family had evacuated the building before the attack and that the injured came from neighbouring homes.

The air raid came shortly after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged that "Hamas will pay a heavy price" for a mortar attack from Gaza which killed a four-year-old Israeli boy.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
