Another senior official pointed out that UNRWA has a history of letting Hamas use its facilities for its terrorist activities. “Time and again, over the years, UNRWA has been abused by gunmen from different terrorist factions who are using UN facilities to stockpile weapons, to fire rockets from, to steal UNRWA humanitarian equipment and to cause damage and fire in UNRWA’s hangars,” a senior Foreign Ministry official told The Times of Israel.
Infantry, Armored Corps, Engineering Corps, artillery and intelligence units are taking over various areas in Gaza, and are all working with one another and the air force. They are operating in central, and southern Gaza, where Hamas has dug an extensive terrorist tunnel network. The IDF’s Southern Command is overseeing the ground offensive.
Palestinian rocket fire from Gaza continued to pound southern Israel throughout Tuesday, with some 80 rockets landing in Israeli territory by the evening. Iron Dome made 23 interceptions throughout the day, shooting down projectiles over Ashdod, Ashkelon, and Gaza border communities.
How exactly are the Israelis supposed to kill the Hamas without blowing up civilian areas, if the Hamas are cowards and live among civilians? Are they supposed to go door-to-door and ask for the Hamas members to come outside to get shot in the face?
If there would be rockets flying into Cali from some town in Mexico, we`d level that place in a week, and no one would say a thing.
There is no way to deal with terrorists except death.

Link - This is a great movie to watch to help understand the Iraelie conflict.
It's really sad how many Americans know nothing of this conflict and just what the Israelies are up against. The Palistinians should not get their own state. They're a bunch of suicide bomber terrorists. It's not all their fault because their leaders brainwash them like nazis, however we sure didn't feel bad about killing nazis did we? Did we care how they got that way?
I had linked the wrong movie + comments in this thread. I was actually responding to another movie.
This movie is totally in favor of Palistenians/anti Jew but is still somewhat informative. The media is run by the jews and is pro jew. But for good reasons outlined in a 3rd video I'm trying to dig up.
Be warned, it's approximately 1.5h long. I'm only about half way through it but it raises some interesting observations and criticism about how the US Media covers information about the Israeli-Palestine conflict. If you have some time to kill, it might be worth looking into.
That was a very well made documentary. Yes the whole thing is from the anti-isreal perspective, and you need to keep that in mind when watching it but it does raise some excellent points.
