Military experts: 'Israel dropped more bombs in a week than US dropped in Afghanistan in a year'

The Israeli Air Force announced that since the fighting broke out on Saturday, it had dropped about 6,000 bombs against Hamas targets throughout the Gaza Strip. These attacks have so far killed more than 1,500 Palestinians, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, "a third of them are children;" Some 6,600 were injured. In the Washington Post, military experts stated that the number of strikes carried out by the IDF since the outbreak of hostilities was "striking," and said that it was a greater number than the US military used in the month of the campaign against ISIS in Iraq and Syria. "In less than a week, Israel dropped the number of bombs that the US drops in Afghanistan in a year, in a much smaller and denser area - where the margin of error increases," claimed Marc Geralsko, a Dutch military adviser and former UN war crimes investigator in Libya. During the most intense year of the American fighting in Afghanistan, a little more than 7,423 bombs were dropped. During the entire war in Libya, NATO reported dropping more than 7,600 bombs and missiles from aircraft. In the fight against ISIS, from 2014 to 2019, the US-led coalition dropped 2,000 to 5,000 bombs all over Iraq and Syria. (Ynet)
