WARNING: GRAPHIC VIOLENCE
On Sunday, the Israeli military carried out the single deadliest offensive in its nearly three-week assault on Gaza, killing as many as 100
Palestinians in the neighborhood of Shejaiya. The operation — which many have called a massacre — has forced most of the remaining residents of
Shejaiya to flee their homes and seek refuge in hospitals or UN schools because there is nowhere else for them to escape in the blockaded Gaza
VICE News was in Gaza to see the aftermath of the bombing of Shejaiya. We visited the central morgue in Gaza City, which holds the bodies of many who
were killed. We then went to see the immediate aftermath of the shelling of yet another house in the city, and later saw another shelling site where
residents were still trying to uncover family members in the rubble.
A VICE reporter give us an insider look at Gaza and the destruction it suffers from Israeli air strikes.
When Israel strikes they hit more than their intended target, like neighboring homes, and that's because Gaza is a compact area. Sometimes no one is
home, sometimes someone is home.
Hamas is disgusting. They incite violence that kills their own people, men, woman, and children.
Israel, the Right Wing in charge of it, is disgusting. Allowing themselves to be baited into killing over a thousand Palestinians, and counting, who
are mostly civilians (74% and rising
) and displacing over a hundred
Hamas is a virus that is sucking the life out of its host. It's intention is to Martyr it's own people. This only the beginning for Gaza, and possibly
the West Bank, round two if you will, Israel has shown that it will kill anyone and everyone in the name of national security. Israel intentionally
targets civilian public facilities (like hospitals) and homes causing massive civilian deaths and property destruction. Their get out of jail free
card is that they provide a warning before they strike. But is every strike coupled with a warning? It's 2am and you'd better wake up because hell
fire is coming! Little time is given if a warning is issued and when the smoke clears all you'll have left is rubble, if you're lucky.
I supposes the Right Wing Israeli gov't's plan is to demoralize the Palestinians so much by blowing up their homes, communities, and loved ones that
they'll remove Hamas themselves. Unfortunately it seems to only strengthen their cause.
So when Hamas intentionally targets civilians and civilian facilities it's terrorism, right? Is Israel not held to the same standard? Hamas wishes it
had Israel's civilian kill count.
