WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON IN ISRAEL AT THE GAZA BORDER
Headlines inundated the news and internet on Monday like wildfire about mass casualties at the Gaza border:
Most likely you saw a version condemning Israel for using excessive force and needlessly murdering peaceful Palestinian protesters. Most of the articles skip Israels side of the story completely.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended his country’s response to protests in Gaza and blamed the territory’s ruling Hamas party for the violence, according to excerpts from a CBS News interview on Tuesday.
“They’re pushing civilians – women, children – into the line of fire with a view of getting casualties. We try to minimize casualties. They’re trying to incur casualties in order to put pressure on Israel, which is horrible,” Netanyahu told CBS News.
The Blaze’s Jason Buttrill and Faithwire’s Dan Andros were at the Gaza border on Monday, where Buttrill interviewed the IDF Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, who explained how Hamas is using children, prisoners, and others to try and storm the fence with the expressed purpose of killing Israeli citizens.
