Haaretz On Rafah: Pointless Destruction
Our worst fears have been realized. At least eight civilians, most of them school children, were killed yesterday and dozens were wounded when a tank shell exploded in the middle of a demonstration by hundreds of Palestinians in Rafah. The pictures broadcast to the world were difficult to look at. This is a tragic incident which the Israel Defense Forces clearly did not expect to happen, but when an army wages warfare in a populated area, this is the result. This disaster follows on the heels of the disturbing scenes from Rafah over the past few days, of the destruction of houses, of walls pockmarked by shells, and of hundreds of families fleeing on foot or on wagons pulled by donkeys.
