Reporter In Gaza: We Saw Firsthand How Israel Tries to Avoid Civilian Casualties (And Other Takeaways)

Daily Telegraph reporter Raf Sanchez was in Gaza following the recent hostilities, and shared his observations on Twitter. They are a must-read for anyone wanting to really understand what is going on.

Here are the main takeaways:

Despite targets in Gaza being hit, Hamas are happy

This should tell you a lot about just how much they truly care about their people.

Gazans on the street support rocket attacks against Israeli civilians

Of course, I am sure there are those who were not, but this is telling nonetheless. All those years of incitement have definitely made their mark.

Despite their bravado, Hamas are sh*tting themselves

What, checkpoints?! The inhumanity!

Israel goes to great lengths to avoid civilian casualties

This is stunning.

We know this to be true but did we realize the extent? It is also great for a reporter to acknowledge the lengths we go to.

Gazans: Wot Me Worry?

This seems indicative of the mentality we see with many palestinians, who are overjoyed to see Jews suffer, even if it means it will lead to increased suffering for themselves.

Hamas leaders don’t really care they killed a palestinian Arab in Israel

And it was the Jooooos fault.

Talk about projection!
