"GAZA CITY, occupied Gaza Strip (IPS) - At 7:30am 22 January, five days after Israeli authorities declared a "ceasefire" following their 22-day air, land and sea bombardment of the Gaza Strip, Israeli gunboats renewed shelling off the Gaza city coast, injuring at least six, including four children.
Muawiyah Hassanain, director of Ambulance and Emergency Services, reported more shelling in the northwestern coastal area al-Sudaniya the same morning. Five fishermen were injured in the attacks, he said......
Israel's assault on Gaza killed at least 1,330 people, with as many as 200 more bodies expected to be recovered from under the rubble of more than 4,000 destroyed houses and 20,000 buildings.
Ninety percent of the cases in al-Shifa's ICU are civilian, and of these half are women and children, says Dr. Fawzi.
Ceasefire violations are not new. During the six-month ceasefire that began 19 June, Israeli forces killed 22 Palestinians, many of them members of resistance groups. Thirty-eight fishermen and farmers were abducted.
Israeli soldiers routinely fired upon fishermen and farmers along Gaza's eastern and northern borders, injuring 62, according to Palestinian sources."
