In 2000 Harper's magazine published Gaza Diary by renowned war correspondent Chris Hedges. Hedges who has covered wars around the world wrote of how the IDF taunted the boys who came to play on the dunes. When the boys threw stones at the well armored IDF vehicles the IDF soldiers shot at the boys. Hedges wrote that it was the first time that he had ever seen soldiers taunt and kill kids for sport. Nothing has changed.
