Gaza death toll rises as Israel hits a disability shelter

BBC wrote:The Palestinian health ministry says two people were killed when Israel hit a residential home for disabled people in Beit Lahiya.

Four other people were seriously wounded, officials say.


I'm surprised that no one posted about Israel's slaughter of the Gaza Strip. The death toll climbs to over a 100 and the international community is by and large a silent one on this issue. Look at ALL the images coming out of Gaza and tell me that it doesn't make your blood boil. Over half the casualties are women and children, and Israel's pathetic excuse of "they were hiding the terrorists" falls really, really short. Regardless of Israel's intent, that Israel killed them is what matters at the end, and that's only going to encourage more rocket attacks.

And the worst part about it? These abductions happened in the WEST BANK. Hamas operates out of the GAZA STRIP. To blame Hamas for the killing of the Israeli teenagers is one thing, but even if they did it, the tens of dead women and children don't make it excusable. Two wrongs don't make a right.

It's the rockets bro. Why do you guys keep shooting rockets which don't hit anything but piss them off?

Oh, so it's still okay to blow up Gazan civilians?

It's not okay. But I just struggle to feel sympathy for a group that keeps poking the bear and then screaming for help when the bear mauls them. Why shoot rockets? You know you aren't going to beat them that way. Now it's basically a he said she said thing, with both of you acting like idiots and expecting me to pick a side. Stop shooting rockets and dropping bombs in Gaza won't be a credible option for Israelis.

yes they are not attacking them because of the teenagers, they are attacking them because hamas keeps on trying to kill isreali civilians from gaza

also it doesn't make my blood boil. what's disturbing is how isreal has said "we're going to bomb this place (like, a house, because the house has a giant rocket launcher) get the f**k out" and then hamas tells people to stay. it's sickening using women and children as human shields for their propaganda war

The one does not excuse the other. Rockets (numbering literally in the thousands at this point) whistling over the border is a legitimate thing to be upset about, regardless of how justified those launching them may feel. They have to know they aren't doing any meaningful damage, and that the reprisals theses ineffectual rocket attacks will inevitably bring are far more deadly.

My advice? Stop doing that. It makes a bad situation worse and just gets even more people killed for nothing.
