Are the international news media paying less attention to the violence in Gaza than they would if Israel were involved? Mideast media analyst Tom Gross thinks so, and he lists developments that many readers may not have seen on their local newscast. For example:
- Three Palestinians were shot dead in Beit Hanoun Hospital in northern Gaza. These include Fatah leader Jamal Abu al-Jedian, who was shot 41 times in his hospital bed.
- Hamas gunmen attacked the home of a Fatah security official with mortars and grenades. Not finding him at home, instead executed his 14-year-old son and three women inside.
- Two Palestinians who worked for a UN agency in Gaza have been executed, a UN spokesman said.
