During Cast Lead the Israeli press and government made much of the fact that the IDF was phoning people and warning them that their apartment buildings were to be bombed. It would, of course, be self-defeating if the goal of the attack was to kill militants. The warning phone calls were - as was touted at the time - intended to reduce civilian casualties. The targets were not terrorists. The target was the homes and jobs of the civilians warned to evacuate. Otherwise the phones never would have rang.
