The Ghost of Snapped Shot

3.. 6.. 9

It would seem that our body count has been inflated by one since yesterday's retelling of the story.

A Palestinian man shouts during the funeral of Hamas militants who were killed in an Israeli air strike on Tuesday, in the southern Gaza Strip February 6, 2008. Israeli forces killed nine Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday and the Islamist group's armed wing issued a statement claiming responsibility for its first suicide bombing in Israel since 2004.

I also seem to have neglected to comment on the claim that Israel struck a "police station." (Or, as the Associated Press so lovingly puts it, "the sandy courtyard of a Hamas police station.") As I've noted before, such claims are usually fairly misleading, so be sure to take them with a gigantic shaker of salt.

Weeping, gnashing, and standard-issue crocodile tears follow the break.

These pictures were followed by the traditional parading of bodies through the streets. I'll spare you the details, save these two:
