The Arab League yesterday lashed out at Israel for pounding Gaza's Shejaiya district, accusing the Jewish state of "war crimes," and called for an "immediate stop" to its offensive. More than 87 Palestinians were killed yesterday as Israeli forces bombarded Shejaiya, sending thousands fleeing in the deadliest assault in 5 years.

At least 87 people were killed and nearly 500 wounded in Israeli shelling of Gaza's northeastern Shejaiya district overnight, medics said. Photo: AFP
