This is just an excuse to try to justify what the IDF does every day. From someone who has been there and gone through the checkpoints, I know how abusive the IDF is to PALS trying to get to work, school, and receive medical care. It is a joke to say "while maintaining the quality of life of the Palestinian population in the area." The IDF never has tried to maintain a quality of life for the PALS. Why should they start now?
