Israeli troops ‘wound boy in Gaza

Palestinian Territories — Israeli troops wounded a six-year-old Palestinian boy on Sunday when they opened fire east of the town of Rafah, in southern Gaza, Palestinian medical sources said.

“A six-year-old Palestinian child was wounded by Israeli army gunfire near the Kerem Shalom crossing, east of Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip, which is where the family lives,” emergency services spokesman Adham Abu Selmiya told AFP.

“He is in moderate condition and was shot with live fire in his thigh,” he added.

Troops regularly open fire on Palestinians who enter the area, including children working or playing in the zone.

So, the IDF policy is to shoot to kill children in the exclusion zone?!? Apparently, they got a little sloppy here, because it appears the little boy might live.

I have to wonder if the Israeli medical establishment has perfected a procedure to surgically remove any shred of conscience they had before they begin their service in the IDF; THAT would have made Josef Mengele technicolor green with envy!!!

SYRIA: Media Accuses Syrian Government of Collaborating with Al Qaeda. How the Media Refutes its own Lies and Fabrications

The latest terrorist attack in Damascus is described by the media as yet another government sponsored initiative geared towards killing Syrian civilians.
The CTV-AP report of this tragic event resulting in 27 deaths and some 140 wounded is riddled with contradictions. First it acknowledges that the target of the attacks was government buildings including Air Force Intelligence and National Security buildings in Damascus.
Obviously, it follows, says the report, that the Syrian regime is responsible for targeting its own government buildings.
Now why on earth would it do that? The answer: “The attacks occurred in areas where government security is typically high, raising opposition suspicions that the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was responsible.”
