Many women, killed by partners, had fled to shelters but went home when support ended.09:23 14.02.16 | 0 comments
Thank you Human Rights Watch for telling it how it is. Though of course, I find the use of cluster bombs abhorrent in any warlike situation, at least I do know that Israel made the effort to spare Lebanese civilians by warning them to leave areas that would be under attack. Israel restrained itself. This was an unprovoked attack on its territory and its troops charged with defending its civilians. Hezbollah was just waiting after six years of building up its arsenal to rain rockets down on Israeli civilians in a constant barrage of 200 rockets a day, totalling about 4000. In this day and age, Israelis had to take cover in shelters, its soldiers bravely entered the no-man's land of Lebanese villages where gunmen would ambush them with ANTI-TANK missiles. 665 men have to be rehabilitated from their wounds, and will have to be followed for the rest of their lives by IDF medical personnel, as I have read in jpost.com, or haaretz, recently. These people are callous beyond imagination.
