IDF Launches Investigation After Four Children Die in AirstrikeIDF Spokesman, Brigadier Moti Almoz addressed reports of four Palestinian Arab children being killed in an IAF airstrike on Wednesday, noting that the accidental deaths were the result of Hamas using civilians as human shields.
"Hamas is hiding among civilians targets," Almoz said, on Channel 2."Hamas continues to make cynical use of civilian casualties and we will continue to operate within a civilian environment."
The IDF is still conducting an internal investigation on the reports. (Arutz 7)
Israeli airstrike in Gaza
In a war, people die. All Israelis should know that by now. The rest of the world recognizes and accepts it except when the shooter or weapon launcher could be Israeli. When civilian Arabs get in the way of Israeli bullets, explosives etc it's called immoral, but no other country gets blamed or to be more exact, no other country cares when they kill civilians. Remember that about 2,000 Iraqis were killed to give Saddam Hussein a fair trial.
In Israel the television and radio are full of public service announcements instructing Israelis how to protect themselves from injury if there's an attack. For years the government has required homes to build "safe rooms." To get a building permit for any major renovation, you must plan a shelter along with any other addition or your plan won't be approved.
If the Gazans cared about civilians they'd be providing their population with shelter and instructing the population how to use them. But the truth is that they prefer using human shields, combining launching pads with kindergartens.
That's not Israel's problem and the State of Israel should ignore civilian enemy causalities. All our government should care about is Israelis. Bibi's tough words of yesterday have been proven just posturing, just empty words. It's a slap in the face of Israeli citizens who have made it clear that we want a victory and we want to destroy the terrorist infrastructure. Let them surrender!
