Kind of opening a can of worms here but I felt it was necessary to share.
So the conflict between Israel and Gaza is all over the news and death tolls are increasing as is reported by the media. A lot of people are against Israel’s actions, and I can understand why if what is presented in the media is Israel’s continuous strikes on innocent civilians in Gaza. But what people truly don’t realise because it is not shown on the news, is that Israel’s defence force do actually give a lot of warning to those in Gaza as to when they will be doing strikes. They make sure that it is so well known that nobody should be getting hurt by the strikes. I know this is as FACT because I have family in the air-force from Israel and they have a MANDATORY OBLIGATION to throw fliers and information to every corner of Gaza as to when and where the strikes will be happening. Israel’s warnings and prior notice are suitable and acceptable however, innocent civilians are being placed in these areas that are going to be attacked KNOWING THAT THEY WILL BE KILLED!
Further to this, Israel actually passes food through to Gaza. You may say “Well actually, that food is not from the Israeli government”, that is true, but the foreign aid is passed through, meaning that ISRAEL IS HELPING THOSE IN GAZA. It could be passed through Jordan, it could even be passed through Lebanon, but it is Israel that brings food and resources to those suffering.
It is horrific to see children and innocent people being killed in this continuous conflict, but people are not being told what is actually happening and that’s a really big thing to not be aware of.
It is absolutely heart breaking to see people dying on both sides and this should not be happening.
