Yesterday TZahal (IDF) killed 19 Palestinians in a fierce battle in enemy urban territory, without having an own soldier killed. Different reports say that "16" or "13" or, at least in any case "the majority" of the killed Palestinians were armed fighters of Hamas.
- This shows that a regular army like Zahal can achieve a clear victory against an enemy guerilla group in a battle in a city. Kol Hakavod!
- Also, this shows that Zahal didn't randomly massacre civilians, but specifically attacked the Hamas terrorists (or was attacked by them).
- For a battle in a densely populated area, which is fought by tank grenades, mortars and Kalashnikovs, the number of killed civilians (in relation to the number of killed armed terrorists) is SUPRISINGLY LOW.
- Vicitims of a massacre don't use mortars and automatic guns against their attackers --- this was NO massacre, but a clear defeat of Hamas in a battle which they wanted themselves (and obviously still want, they are again sending invitations). Of course they don't admit this.
