'She kept screaming,' says father of 2-year-old killed in airstrike

http://www.maannews.com/Content.aspx?id=768194

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A doll and a few toys were the only belongings left by two-year-old Rahaf Hassan when she was killed along with her 25-year-old pregnant mother in an Israeli airstrike in southern Gaza City on Sunday.

Shortly before the attack, Rahaf and her mother had been safe in their family home, which lies among olive groves in an agricultural area, seemingly far from any military presence.

Israel claims that the house lay close to a military base used by Palestinian resistance fighters, justifying a missile fired by an M16 Israeli fighter jet that in the early hours of Sunday brought the house crashing down.

The family was trapped among the rubble, Rahaf's father, Yahya, told Ma'an, and his two-year-old daughter screamed for him in the hope he would hurry to pull her out.



That's what the IDF apparently does best, IMHO: murder civilians... children then justify excuses for it.

1. There's no excuse for killing a two year old.

 

If you are aiming at a weapons manufacturing facility, that's what you better hit.

The US just had a similar accident killing 22 people including 3 children.

That sort of thing is just not acceptable.

2. Amazing how Israel never admits fault for a single Palestinian death.

 

Even when they massacre young boys playing soccer on a beach.

They don't view Palestinians as humans, but rather as orcs.

3. What's even more amazing is the hasbarist hustle where their main objective

 


is to attempt to delegitimize, smear or defuse these stories of Israeli genocide.

Most of the time it is poorly done, and you can see the shut-in amateur mind at work.


But to get back to the gist of this terrible story, the IDF and the ones that tell them to follow orderz, will ignore the hell out of this "event" for as long as possible then make excuses.

Conversely, they will shoot a Palestinian dead in cold blood and declare him/her a terrorist without evidence.


Israel, and its band of bigot enablers is truly screwed.

4. Whereas Palestinian leadership brags about Jewish Israeli deaths

 

They don't even express regret when Israeli civilians are killed in the name of "resistance" - they brag about it.

They don't view Israelis (or to be more specific Israeli Jews) as humans or even as orcs but rather as instruments of the devil.

5. The two sides have managed to thoroughly corrupt and warp

 

both themselves and each other.

The U.S. should wash its hands of the whole sordid mess and stop intervening diplomatically.
