19. depends on your definition of indiscriminately
targeting a facility in a highly-populated civilian area could be considered indiscriminate, since it's bound to kill civilians. Even the smartest of smart bombs can't avoid that.

the only true way to avoid killing large numbers of civilians would be for Israel to order every woman and child out of Gaza and then go in with ground troops and make mass arrests or have a huge shootout.

...which, granted, isn't the smartest option for Israel, which is why that's likely not going to happen.
