Studies show that US coverage is Israeli-centric. The main bureaus for CNN, Associated Press, Time, etc. are located in Israel and often staffed by Israelis. The son of the NY Times bureau chief is in the Israeli army;"pundit" Jeffrey Goldberg served in the IDF; Wolf Blitzer worked for AIPAC. Because the U.S. gives Israel over $8 million/day - more than to any other nation - we feel it is essential that we be fully informed on this region. Below are news reports to augment mainstream coverage.

Israeli fighter jets fire missiles into Gaza Strip, two Palestinians injured

Ma’an – Two Palestinians were injured, one of them critically, as Israeli warplanes targeted the southern Gaza Strip for the fifth day in row, onlookers said.

A Ma’an reporter said fighter jets fired missiles at the town of Khuza’a east of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.

Two men were injured and were evacuated to Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis, where medics said one of the victims sustained critical wounds.

Israel's army described the target as a "terrorist squad planning to target IDF soldiers," the Ynet news site reported. The attack was a result of a cooperation with the Shin Bet.

On Sunday, medics said seven Palestinians from one family were injured in Israeli airstrike on Beit Hanoun. Amongst the victims were four children. Israel's army denied carrying out the attack.
