Casualties in Gaza too high – US via Joseph Wouk

Casualties in Gaza won’t be too high until every last member of Hamas is wiped off of the face of the earth!’

Islam the death cult and Muhammad are depicted where they properly belong, Islam dead and Muhammad’s head on a woman’s spear.

Casualties in Gaza too high – US

Casualties in Gaza too high – US, BBC News, July 31, 2014

(I have yet to see any specific suggestions on how Israel could lessen civilian casualties in Gaza without effectively surrendering to Hamas’ missiles, tunnels and booby trapped “civilian” structures for peace program. Perhaps the U.S. Department of Defense could share ideas on how to do it. Or Hamas could be given more reliable missiles that would detonate in Israel rather than in Gazan civilian areas.– DM)

The US has said that civilian casualties in Gaza are “too high”, and called on Israel to do more to protect civilian life.

“The Israelis need to do more to live up to their very high standards… for protecting civilian life,” a Pentagon spokesman said.

The UN has also criticised Israel over the worsening situation in Gaza, saying people there are “facing a precipice”.

Some 425,000 Palestinians have been displaced by fighting, the UN says.

Meanwhile a senior Israeli official told the BBC that the army had “neutralised” 70 to 80% of Hamas’ offensive tunnel network.

Israel says it will not stop its operation in Gaza until all the tunnels – which militants use to infiltrate Israeli territory – have been destroyed.

Since Israel began its offensive in Gaza on 8 July, 1,400 Palestinians have been killed, most of them civilians, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

It said 173 people had been killed within the past 24 hours.

Some 58 Israelis have been killed, 56 soldiers and two civilians. A Thai worker in Israel has also died.
