1. 11 killed
mike ,   montreal   (11.18.12)
lies lies and more lies.
2. Who knows if that's true
Talula ,   Israel   (11.18.12)
They are using Syrian news footage of dead people and claiming it happened in Gaza, when it recently came to light that it was old news footage. The sentence 'Hamas, where the truth LIES' is all over the place now, and never a truer word spoken. The people of Gaza need to make their voices heard, for it's them that can stop the rocket fire, if they really wanted to, maybe they just don't it enough.
3. Cowards are hiding in civilian apartments
Gracey ,   Tel Aviv   (11.18.12)
And they call themselves martyrs? This entire thing would be over in a few hours if the cowardly Hamas members came out into the open and stopped hiding in hospitals, schools and civilian popuated areas. We'd eliminate them, they would still be considered martyrs and everyone would sleep better.
Richard ,   Boca Raton, FL, USA   (11.18.12)
Hamas, you can’t take the death of your own people? You are shooting rockets into Israel’s civilian areas and are trying to kill civilians. At least the IAF does not PURPOSELY try to kill civilians, and don’t tell me they are trying. If they were trying to kill Palestinian civilians, then there would be 100,000 dead by now.
5. IDF: oops.
seadog1946 ,   ArthurKill, NJ   (11.18.12)
6. Killing civilians
Syd Chaden ,   Palermo Calif USA   (11.18.12)
Hamas fires its rockets indiscriminately at civilians from positions which are close to civilians and Mosques, and then cries for world sympathy when retaliatory strikes hit civilians. An anti-Semitic World, informed by an anti-Semitic press, criticizes Israel for retaliating. Israel needs to end this absurd situation. Israel should implant explosives around the Al Aksa Mosque, and declare that the very next Musliim attack on Israel will bring the destruction of the Mosque. The Mullahs, who incite the attacks on Israel, can either issue Fatwas against any further attacks or see their Mosque destroyed. If they stop the attacks, Israel will be freed from attacks. If they don't, Israel will be no worse off than they were. And, Israel can clear the site and commence reconstruction of the Jewish Temple.
7. ONLY 11 terrorists killed? What's wrong with Israel govt?
8. Residential buildings containing rockets?
9. well, that's what they aim for.
Israeli ,   Haifa   (11.18.12)
Hamas deliberately restrains civilians from leaving so that their chances of becoming a casualty rises. The IDF sent sms's and flyers to the civilians to warn them of impending air strikes in their areas. Hamas stops people from leaving. Watch dog groups are reporting that Hamas is NOT allowing people to evacuate the cities. Foreign journalists are being detained as well. Hamas operatives NEED to try to evoke international pressure on Israel to stop shelling because they know there are plenty of left wing, anti-semitic bleeding hearts who will pressure Israel with condemnations, boycotts, a media barage, etc. Same O, same O.
10. Terrorists Put Their Families At Risk
Yishai Kohen ,   YeShA, Israel   (11.18.12)
So if they don't care, neither do I. The terrorist will be killed, and if his family goes too, then their blood is on his head.
11. alll gaza hamas and guilty
morson   (11.18.12)
gazans allow rocket crews to embedd in their backyards and are used as human shields(where is the scumbag goldstone to charge haniyeh and all hamas with war crimes- he's hiding like the gutless coward he is likely exchanging notes with that piece of filth at HRC navay pillay). Gazans, you are complicit and you all are going to pay. Start passing out candies to celebrate. Gazans flee for your lives as the idf has only got started. Liberman is tough and uses russian methods for payback not like the 3 previous leaders of israel in cast lead-olmert, a gutless coward who could not take one drop of blood, livni who is dumb as a doorknob and brain challenged and ramon, a piece of drek who has done nothing with his life.
12. Both Sides PyschoFeral
Zivron   (11.18.12)
Both sides are criminal and insane Iain not clearing civilians from the war machines and attacking each other in a vicious cycle dynamic.Human nature reveals itself as inbred feral which was Darwins Terrible Realization.Genocide prevention demands a cease fire on the current borders but Tribalism and Feralism will prolong the Agony.
13. #6 Syd - You have a fundamental flaw in your logic
meir elazar   (11.18.12)
You assume that they have some form of moral compass. This is totally false. The Taliban had no problems blowing up a 3000 year old Budha. They had no problem blowing up the Golden Dome Mosque in Samarra. They exploit schools, hospitals, and mosques for military purposes. Why do you think they would give a damn about the El Aksa mosque? They have no respect for holy sites.
14. If it was US the party in the photo above woule be dead
Miron ,   USA   (11.18.12)
to the last. We go after those who come to visit our targets.
15. @4 Why should the victims stop whining?
Miron ,   USA   (11.18.12)
We have no desire to destroy Gaza. And sorry, when people get killed and scared, even when they are bad people, they whine. It's natural. So, whining is ok. In fact it helps to save lives, and thus a good thing. The wrong part is Israel's whining, before the operation, regarding tenth of rockets fired at Israel wasn't reported. But then Israel wasn't responding to fire and you had no reason to worry... Somehow saving lives of Jewish Israelis and whining that could have helped to it ain't being reported in Western press. That's the other wrong part to it. But than, if it was reported and noted, Hamas will be unable to fire rockets at Israel with impunity... So, perhaps it's not Hamas's whining that is the trouble. It's your unique hearing apparatus that hears Hamas's whining and ignores that of Jewish Israelis?
16. A Taste of Your Own Medicine
AlanfromRye ,   RyeNY USA   (11.18.12)
I guess if you don't like missiles exploding where you live, ya might wanna consider NOT VOTING for terrorists to control your government and allow or encourage firing rockets at Israel. But since you DID VOTE for terrorists who encourage firing rockets at Israel, WE DON'T REALLY CARE HOW MANY Muslims get killed when Israel responds to your stupid rockets. In America, we call that A TASTE OF YOUR OWN MEDICINE
17. This one is bad
David ,   San Francisco   (11.18.12)
No matter how much of a staunch Zionist you are, this one will be hard to defend or justify. You can't simply pass off deaths when you intentionally kill several innocent civilians, especially toddlers, at once.
18. Gaza strike
David ,   Germany   (11.18.12)
The Palestinians fire rockets and started the conflict. Rockets paid with EU and UN money! They put the launchers in the middle of populated areas, bringing their own people in danger. On another note, why now? Is this a decoy to take the focus off of Iran and if so why? There is more here then what meets the eye!!
19. I struggle to understand if this surgical & self defence!!!
20. IDF should have full responsibilities for their strikes!
21. Something from twitter,
Israeli ,   Haifa   (11.18.12)
IDF reports that some of the rockets Hamas operatives are firing are misfiring and landing on Gazan territory and buildings. Some of these 11 may have been killed by friendly fire. But that fact will NEVER EVER see the light of day.
22. Jamel Mohamed Yasin was the target.
Israeli ,   Haifa   (11.18.12)
He was hiding behind women and children. He escaped. They did not.
23. Every Hamas rocket fired intended to kill civilians!
Cynic ,   USA   (11.18.12)
24. Israel
alan ,   ohio   (11.18.12)
Do not stop---no cease fire until they give up all arms and wave a white flag
25. How nice to see YNET serving as Hamas mouthpiece, lying
Shut down YNET ,   Haifa   (11.18.12)
So YNET has nothing better to do than reprint HAMAS lies?
Robert ,   Israel   (11.18.12)
The reason why there always are more Palestinians dead than Israelis is because Palestinians only care about manufacturing and buying rockets to shoot at Israelis, while Israelis spent most of their money building bomb proof shelters in order to save the lives of our grand parents, parents, children and grand children. It will come the day in which Muslims will finally learn that one single life is much more important than a good rocket. It will take them a lot of time and a lot more of dead relatives, but at the end they learn the lesson.
27. 5 women, 4 children killed in Gaza strike
Jon ,   Uk   (11.18.12)
Israel should use world media and show how children and people runing to bunkers but mainly show the children how scared they are to get sympethy
28. Human shields
sujaye ,   usa   (11.18.12)
Israel fires against terrorists with precision bombs but mistakes can happen in war.Hamas on the other hand aims primarily at civilians and hides among them with their launchers in Gaza.What if one aimed at Tel Aviv gets thru? We all know that Hamas doesn't care about civilians on either side.They score points either way if innocent people die.
29. Morison do you have any clue what you are talking about?
Ryan ,   Netanya   (11.18.12)
Israel has difficulty getting rid of Hamas as did the PA in the West Bank . You think these everyday people, with no money, no arms can stand up to them? They would put their lives and families at serious risk. You live in a fantasy land. You can express your opinion. You can say Your leaders suck if you want to, bet you wouldn't if someone came to take your kids away. You think they want to be in that situation? They would leave Hamas in a heart beat except the Arab brotherhood doesn't want any of them. have you not seen how many Arab revolutions have taken place in the last year? Their leaders kill people that rebel. Ever notice that you never hear any people speaking out on the Internet from Gaza either good or bad. They have computers. They have Internet. They are scared shitless. The enemy is Hamas, Iran, Hezbollah etc. focus on them. The IDF does, why can't you?
30. Way to defend yourself, Israel
Tom   (11.18.12)
Those West Bank settlements must be the costliest real estate in the world. Not so much in terms of money as in terms of human life that this conflict keeps devouring.
