At the first sign of movement in the dark Gaza alleyway, Alon opened fire without hesitation. Snipers liked to operate at night, he said, and the area had been cleared of Israeli troops.
“He could have been advancing to attack,” the Israeli lieutenant explained. “We are treating everything as hostile right now. We were told not to take chances - to shoot rather than ask questions.”
You only have see those pictures of those babies with bullet wounds to their chests to know this is true. So sad!

Hello everyone....welcome to another "trash Israel" thread from magicmushroom.....where a complete lack of understanding in real world conflict is displayed and any opposing viewpoints are ignored.
The agenda should be very clear by now.

called a cease fire and removed allthe ol,women and children from Gaza and then have a fight with the freedom fighters
they want to kill as many as possible and this is not war this is slaughter
Its obvious many people cannot tell the difference between the two.
as Gaza is nothing more than a enclosed densly populated Ghetto where would you want them to store their ammo, out in the middle off nowhere where it would take hours to get to it or close to hand ready for use.

I do agree its a ruthless tactic, but you’ve got to look at it as if you were on the ground.
Imagine your a 12yr old boy/girl in Gaza living at home.
The last week you’ve been in your bombproof shelter cowering in a corner with your ma, pa and sister holding each other tight.
You hear the tanks rumbling outside, you hear explosions, you hear Israeli soldiers screaming orders and gun fights.
Now, do you
A. leave your bomb basement and go play with the red ball in the street
B. go walking around the neighbourhood amongst the fighting
C. stay in your bomb proof basement with your family
The way your criticising them, its as if children and women are playing happily in the streets amongst the fighting, and are being killed left right and centre.
I imagine the only young boys/girls walking the streets amongst the fighting are people who are either scouts, or militia.
Normally family types are in hiding or fleeing.
Go look at some photos of the carnage in Gaza,
I’m not seeing whole blocks flattened, buildings are being selected and bombed with munitions smaller than normal.
Out of 1.5M people, only 900 have been killed, that’s not indiscriminate slaughter.
As for the claims of Israeli's putting dozens of refugee's into buildings then destroying it, or them hitting schools, and hospitals and such.. is very questionable.
Israel wouldn’t go to all this trouble to try and make this conflict legitimate, then decide '' hell with it, lets go destroy some hospitals n schools ''
Why cant Hama's plant explosives in the schools and hospitals, detonate it, then blame Israel?
I mean they are filling up their mosques with rockets and weapons..
I always used to be like you, blame one side simply because of who they are.
But there comes a time when you need to accept that sometimes things are done properly, and some times there's mistakes.
I feel Israel gave Palestine a chance in Gaza, they moved out, gave them the land, and gave them a chance.
Instead, the government allowed Hamas to fire rockets uninterrupted, no one did anything for so long. So obviously, Hamas is directly involved in attacking Israel with rockets. Therefore they are a legitimate target.
If Cuba were striking Miami with crude rockets, I have no doubt in my mind Cuba would be a floating wasteland. And all Americans would be slapping each other on their backs praising the glorious defeat..
