GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian medical official called on the international community Sunday to protect Palestinians from the Israeli military assault which has targeted the Gaza Strip over the last three days.

Emergency services spokesman Adham Abu Salmiya said in a statement that Gaza had suffered enough from the siege alone.

The death toll in Gaza is 14 dead and over forty people injured, he added.

Abu Salmiya said that the extent of the injuries on the victims raised questions about the type of weaponry being employed by Israeli forces.

He called on the international community and the EU to take immediate action on the basis of international law.
