1 vs 100

No not the TV game show. Just another example of Israel's 'measured response' , as the Harpocrites call it, in it's one sided war of occupation .

The Palestinian death toll was one of the highest for a single day since the beginning of the intifada more than seven years ago, and included militants and civilians, among them several children and a 21-month-old baby. Two Israeli soldiers were also killed in heavy fighting with Hamas gunmen.
