panamsat3 said: I wonder why a UN location would targeted? You should try googling "Hamas rockets at UN school" and see what you learn. Hamas is using these locations to hide their missiles. Just like Hamas uses Palestinian civilians as human shields every single day.
Why are you acting like Israel needs a legitimate reason to target civilians?
Are you aware of the 1996 Qana massacre?
Literally the same situation, but in Lebanon. Refugees flooded to the UN compound to take shelter from Israeli bombing. The compound was bombed.
Have you heard of the 2006 Qana massacre?
A three story building hosting 28 people was bombed in the same fashion. All 28 died. 16 of them children. This was in the same place.
So of course, what did Israel say? First, like all IDF responses to war crimes, they denied that they had anything to do with the explosion. Then when it was proven that it was the IAF, they claimed that Hezbollah was using the Lebanese as a human shields and firing rockets.
Human rights watch reported:
"Similarly, none of the dozens of international journalists, rescue workers and international observers who visited Qana on July 30 and 31 reported seeing any evidence of Hezbollah military presence in or around the home. Rescue workers recovered no bodies of apparent Hezbollah fighters from inside or near the building."
In response to the same accusations hurled at Hamas during “cast lead”, Amnesty International reported:
”contrary to repeated allegations by Israeli officials of the use of ‘human shields,’ Amnesty International found no evidence that Hamas or other Palestinian fighters directed the movement of civilians to shield military objectives from attacks. It found no evidence that Hamas or other armed groups forced residents to stay in or around buildings used by fighters, nor that fighters prevented residents from leaving buildings or areas which had been commandeered by militants.”
I find it kind of sad that in 2014 people still take the word of the Army of a country who needs to hire people to spread its propaganda.
