Some news not "worthy" enough for the mainstream media...
The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) strongly condemns the killing earlier today of three Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip when an Israeli tank opened fire on the Jabaliya refugee camp which is located in the north of Gaza. According to media reports, two children, 10 and 12 years-old, were killed immediately. Their cousin, a 12 year-old girl, was pronounced dead after efforts to save her life failed. This brings the number of Palestinian children killed during this week, as a result of Israeli military operations, to nine.
ADC strongly condemns the killing of innocent civilians and is saddened at the tragic loss of children. The Gaza Strip, being one of the most densely populated places on earth with almost half of the population under the age of 15, has often seen indiscriminant killing of civilians and children in particular. More than 1.4 million people live in the 140 square miles (360 square kilometers) which is the Gaza Strip. According to the UN Development Programme (UNDP), 84.6% of Gaza's residents live below the poverty line (US $ 2/day).
