Israeli aggresion enters sixth day; Palestinian death toll reaches 84
Sunday was one of the most brutal days for Palestinians as more than two dozen lives were lost in the Israeli onslaught. Global leaders are now raising concern and are asking Israel to stop the bombing and reach a ceasefire with Hamas, the Palestinian resistance group.

AROUND 84 Palestinians have been killed and as many as 720 people wounded, as Israeli offensive on Gaza entered sixth day today. The toll is feared to increase as Israel plans to ahead with the ground offensive.

The violence started last week when Israel launched Operation Pillar of Defense and blew to death a senior Hamas leader Al Jabri.

Missiles have been fired on all parts of the 'occupied territory', similarly, yesterday an Israeli missile struck a house in the Gaza city, which lead to the death of around four children and eight more people. It was a brutal attack. It was on Sunday that Israel also fired a minimum of 75 rockets, intensifying the violence and creating fear in the mindsets of the residents.

Many refer this Sunday as the worst day in the entire episode till date. ABC News reported that 29 Palestinians were killed on this day. But, one has also to remember Friday and Saturday, when the violence was equally volatile with 230 projectiles fired from Gaza into southern Israel, thousands so far 3 Israelis have been killed in these attacks.

As reported by Reuters, Israel bombed dozens of suspected guerrilas sites in the Gaza strip on Monday, which led to an increase in the number of deaths. When such missiles are being launched, it is those sharpnels, which strike people leading to injuries and sometimes resulting to death if it is fatal and brutal. There was no stopping of bombings, and there was constant bombing throughout the night as well.

Major political leaders throughout the world have felt the need for ceasefire now, as the situation may get out of hand if the magnitude of these attacks are not brought down. Ban Ki-moon has also asked Israel and Hamas to come and reach a ceasefire and work with Egypt.

Meanwhile protests were held across the world, including Indian capital New Delhi, where protesters held placards in their hands and raised slogans outside Israeli Embassy, asking it to stop the offensive.
