Israel tries to minimize civilian casualties more than anyone else does and hamas hezbouleh uses this against Israel using human shields. Indeed, applying goldstone standards NATO Britain France Canada Poland and of course the US are absolutely guilty of war crimes, not even to mention Russia which would be off the charts. One of a commanders duties is to protect his/her people if this is ignored or made impossible not only will the soldiers die but their mission will be doomed to failure, with even worst consequences, like destruction of Israel. One can try, as Israel does, to minimize civilian casualties but crippling ones own military if suicidal, indeed, just surrender and claim a moral victory
