Hamas Rockets Are Killing Palestinians Too

(Spectator-UK) Jonathan Sacerdoti - Israel insists that the airstrikes on Saturday which destroyed the Al Jala tower in Gaza, which housed offices of Al Jazeera and the Associated Press, did not target a "media center" as was widely reported. Their intelligence revealed that the tower was used by Hamas, and to a lesser extent by Islamic Jihad, for three purposes. First, it housed the offices of their military intelligence, which were used for military purposes against Israel. Second, Hamas' research and development were undertaken there, with their experts operating to develop military weapons to use against Israel. Third, there were "highly advanced technological tools in or on the building which Hamas has used in fighting against" Israel. IDF spokesman Lt.-Col. Jonathan Conricus explained that "out of respect to civilian non-combatants and journalists," notice was given of the impending airstrike, despite that giving Hamas and Islamic Jihad time to salvage some of their equipment. Hamas does everything it can to embed its own infrastructure within civilian infrastructure. And some of the targets Israel is attacking are indeed houses or apartments. Since Monday, Israel has sustained 2,800 rocket attacks from Gaza with larger warheads and extended ranges. Four million Israelis are now in the range of Hamas rockets. So far, 430 Palestinian rockets have fallen short, landing inside Gaza. Hamas is not only murdering Israeli civilians, but also innocent Gazans. Naturally, Hamas blames the deaths on Israel, rolling the numbers into the tally they provide.
