NETANYAHU DEFENDS USE OF DEADLY FORCE IN GAZA, SAYS HAMAS PUT “CHILDREN INTO THE LINE OF FIRE":

Posted on

Israeli PM Netanyahu on Tues. 15 May 2018 defended the military's use of lethal force against Palestinians during anti-Israel protests along the Gaza border. In an interview with "CBS News" the prime minister said Palestinians put children in the line of fire. I don't know of any army that would do anything differently if you had to protect your border against people who say, 'We're going to destroy you, and we're going to flood into your country. You try other means. You try non-lethal means, and they don't work, so you're left with bad choices. It's a bad deal and unfortunately these things are avoidable. If Hamas had not pushed them there, then nothing would happen. Hamas holds responsibility for doing this, and they're deliberately doing it." Nearly 60 Palestinians were killed during the previous day's mass protest, which came on the same day the USA officially moved its embassy to Jerusalem. Netanyahu put the blame for the death toll on Hamas, which controls Gaza. "They're pushing civilians, women, children into the line of fire with the view of getting casualties," said Netanyahu "We try to minimize casualties. They're trying to incur casualties in order to put pressure on Israel, which is horrible." (CBS)
