Can you show something to support that claim?
Is there any evidence to support the alleged fact that the house of this pharmacist was being used to smuggle explosives?
I thought the claim was that the house was being used by Palestinian fighters to attack Israeli troops not smuggle explosives in a tunnel to help blow
As far as the reasons behind this alleged accident, I've only read the defense of this action by the IDF as being that the driver of the Caterpillar
D9 could not see her, and they produced a video to back that claim up. They DID acknowledge though that standard protocol requires
the driver of the vehicle be guided to its targets by an official operator (like those guys in the street with the flags and stop signs during
construction) specifically because the field of vision is so terribly limited. Otherwise there would be so many potential accidents you could never
get anything done at all.
Oddly enough this military regulation was not followed at all in this particular instance yet the driver was absolved of any responsibility in Corries
death. Even if they were there to demolish a home that was allegedly hiding a tunnel, protocol was not followed and someone died because of it.
If it was a mistake due to gross negligence and the fact that IDF military protocol was blatantly ignored, I'm still surprised it was merely
When operating such demolition vehicles you don't just plow ahead without seeing where you are going. Especially if there are known protestors and a
family in the area protesting the demolition itself. That and the fact that the soldiers were admittedly told not to harm the protestors in the
"Philadelphia Axis", and this act is 'negligence' at the very least.
Even in the States we have to at least arrest a tree-hugger chained to a tree, and not just start cutting through them as if they were a Douglas Fir

That's just beyond reckless.
