A horrible landmark has been reached in Gaza. More than 10,000 Palestinians have now been killed in Israel’s bombardment of the tiny Palestinian enclave, according to the Gaza health ministry . To contextualize it a little: that’s one in every 250 people in Gaza dead in little over a month. The ministry said that 4,104 of the dead were children and 2,642 were women. It also said that 25,408 people have been wounded. “I’m not sure I have the words that will do any justice to what’s been happening or to the suffering or to the grief or to the heartache of mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters and friends and fiancés and husbands and wives,” Juliette Touma, spokesperson for the United Nations' Palestinian refugee agency, said today.
