The violence capped weeks of protests by Palestinians, who began demonstrating against Israel’s blockade of Gaza back in March.
In that time, as Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports, “Hamas and the other resistance movements in Gaza refrained from launching rockets into Israel. No Israeli soldier or resident was injured. Israel, on the other hand, acted against the unarmed demonstrators with sniper fire, live fire that killed and maimed.”
The newspaper made those remarks in its lead editorial Tuesday, titled “Stop the Bloodbath.”
Please stop! You’re breaking my heart.
