"What we did was insane and monstrous, we covered entire towns in cluster bombs," the head of an IDF rocket unit in Lebanon said regarding the use of cluster bombs and phosphorous shells during the war.
Quoting his battalion commander, the rocket unit head stated that the IDF fired around 1,800 cluster bombs, containing over 1.2 million cluster bomblets.
In addition, soldiers in IDF artillery units testified that the army used phosphorous shells during the war, widely forbidden by international law. According to their claims, the vast majority of said explosive ordinance was fired in the final 10 days of the war.

Well first of all,israel has been occupying land in gaza for a LONG time,thats illegal.Israel controls gaza's borders,airspace and coast,thats illegal.Hamas whether you like them or not were elected fair and square,they were elected for the reasons ive just mentioned,radicals have a better chance of gaining power if the populace is angry,desperate and when someone comes along to say they will fight against the aggressors who have inflicted this pain upon them,the inevitable happens.Hamas are the result of Israels actions against the palestinian people.Killing civilians cannot be justified,but cause and effect are important to remember.

I would add that targets of the attacks are an important factor as well. Hamas purposefully targets innocents. While the innocent Israel kills are collateral damage. Not defending Israel on this, just saying that the intended targets are an important factor as well.
