Palestinians aren't 'others' [Letter]

The sub-headline to your article, "Sharp rise in Gaza deaths" reads "70 others killed." Please do not identify a group of people who are in crisis and need help as "others." Let it be known that these "others" were Palestinians, most of whom have no control over the situation. Please do not be so one-sided in the future. Shame on you!
