Council of Europe report accuses Israel of `systematic killing` in Gaza (including link to full report)Itamar Eichner - Y-net - The Council of Europe, meeting at Strasbourg, voted by a 45-12 majority to adopt a report sharply critical of Israeli conduct in the Gaza Strip.

Israeli witness in Gaza: No water, no electricity and children dying unnecessarilyAyelett Shani - Haaretz - Salah Haj Yahya, 50, who lives in Taibeh, runs a mobile clinic on behalf of Physicians for Human Rights and leads medical teams going to Gaza: “Most people don’t have work.
