Missiles from Gaza are now being fired from populated areas in Gaza.
The Sderot Media Center filmed a missile fired from the roof top of an apartment building in Gaza which can be seen in the second video clip at:
The IDF has given orders to kill any and all rocket launchers.
That order means that it is a matter of time before we witness massive Arab civlian casualties in Gaza.
Bitselem, funded by European governments and by the NEW ISRAEL FUND, has issued a warning to the IDF not to kill civilians, saying that this would be a war crime. This follows quieter Bitselem statements that harboring terrorists is also a war crime
US State Department spokespeople have also warned Israel against attacking civilians.
We interviewed the head of the IDF CODE OF ETHICS committee, Prof. Assa Kasher and asked Kasher if the ethical code of the IDF would indeed allow the IDF to neutralize a missile launcher if it fires missiles from the roof of an apartment building, regardless of civilian casualties that may occur as a result of that attack
Kasher’s answer was “yes”.
Israel will undoubtedly face an international media blitz after charred bodies of men, women and children are filmed by Palestinian media professionals, as their corpses are carried out of these buildings that the IAF will flatten.
How does Israel plan to cope with that situation?
