    Of course not. But this account is actually distorted and full of execuses. When Israel attacked, the police were not in any place to fight: they actually were doing regular police work when they were sloughtered by F16's and F15's. So, save the argument for the others; those were not confused with any civilian or military targets. Besides, it was surprising how weak Hamas resistance was. That they used their people as human shields is a big lie, a way to justfy attacks on civilians. The Sammoni family were ordered to enter a house bu soldiers after being searched and on the next day they were hit by tanks. For four days, soldiers who were in a military base som 70 meters from them did not help them. Civilians were hit from the ai by pilots who had the technology to see that it was just a mother and two children fleeing in the opposite direction, yet fired missiles at them. And the brave soldiers forced mn and children to do their work, search places, walk in front of them...etc. during the operations. farms, homes and industrial plants; thousands of them, were destroyed AFTER all fighting stopped; for no reason or military necessity. There are hundreds of other examples. These are serious violations that you might want to take a second to look at the conduct of soldiers and commanders who behaved so shamefully during this operation instead of dismissing all these facts because of the ID of the people who tell them.
