I am writing in regards to a recent piece in this publication about Israel's bombing and invasion of Gaza. 

According to the United Nations, of the dead, at least 260(approximately 77%) have been civilians, including 44 children and 29 women. At least 25,000 children traumatized by the death or injury of a family member, or loss of a home, require specialized psychosocial (PSS) support. Israel's attacks against Palestinians in Gaza are not narrowly targeted against military targets, but are having devastating impacts on civilians. 

US citizens and the world need to know about these atrocities and demand an end to this ongoing violence against civilians.
