The terrible violence in Gaza and in Israel continues to escalate. As of now, ninety-six Palestinians and three Israelis have been killed, and many more people are at risk. The Israeli military launched a strike against a media building on Sunday, where both Arab and Western media outlets had offices. The number of civilian causalities is rising, including entire families and children (see full articles at the Guardian and the NYTimes). MADRE continues to monitor and respond to the situation in Gaza and stand with our partners in Palestine and Israel against violence.
