Palestinian Death Toll Tops 2,130 After 50 Days of Israeli Attacks

Gaza City, August 26 (RHC)-- As the Israeli assault entered its 50th day, the Palestinian death toll reached more than 2,130, the vast majority civilians, with 68 dead on the Israeli side, all but four of them soldiers.

At least two Palestinians were killed early Tuesday morning. The Palestinian news agency Ma’an reports at least 12 were killed Monday, while Reuters says the victims included at least four people killed when Israeli aircraft struck four homes in the town of Beit Lahiya.

A journalist, Abdullah Murtaja, reportedly died Monday, two weeks after he was injured by an Israeli attack in the Shujaiyya neighborhood of Gaza City.
