    Israel damages Gaza kindergarten in airstrike the night of June 3, 2012

    This story is reported by ReliefWeb, from misna.org

    The kindergarten was only opened a few months ago, and was funded by the Italian government.


    “We are very surprised by what happened because the kindergarten was announced in Israel, in short, they know we’re there, we opened the facility on March 19″: thus said to MISNA the President of the NGO ‘Wind of the Earth’, Massimo Annibale Rossi, which together with the Italian Cooperation and the Italian episcopal Conference (CEI), has funded and built the Umm al-Nasser kindergarten, damaged in an Israeli air raid last Saturday night.

    “The ‘Children of Earth’ – the first children’s center in Gaza, which derives all its energy from solar panels – regularly hosts approximately 130 children between the ages of three and six, as well as organizing activities for the women of the Bedouin community next village,” explained Massimo Annibale Rossi.

    “In an area with unemployment rates of 80%, with 9 out of 10 children suffering from intestinal parasites and the living conditions of a Sub-Saharan African country, despite being located just 30 kilometers from Tel Aviv – insists Rossi – you cannot target a rare oasis of fun and normalcy for children born and raised during a conflict and under embargo.”

    According to the leaders of the structure, the damage caused by the raid, however, will not prevent the resumption of normal activities of kindergarten.

    Two Thumbs,

    Israel's response to acts of militants is to bomb civilians and civilian objects in Gaza, in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention.

    A couple of days before this airstrike, and other airstrikes that injured 10 Palestinian civilians, that included 7 children, and damaged a dairy farm, an animal farm, and houses in a refugee camp,as well as the kindergarten, on Friday, 01 June 2012, an armed clash erupted between a member of the Palestinian resistance, who was able to cross the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel to the east of ‘Abassan village, east of Khan Yunis, and IOF positioned at the border. During this confrontation, Israeli aircrafts opened fired at Palestinian agricultural areas in the east of the village.
    Later, IOF declared that an Israeli soldier and a Palestinian gunman were killed. The Palestinian gunman was identified as Ahmed Ahmed Nasser Abu Nasser, 19, from ‘Abassan village.

    Do you complain when Hamas targets schools, kindergartens, day care centers , shopping mails and buses in Israel.

    Israel does not target civilians. They target Hamas launch sites and command and control centers. The launch sites are usually on rooftops and in school yards. The command centers are usually under Hospitals and schools.

    The Geneva convention allows a nation to target enemy sites no matter where they are located.

    I always love how they say "civilians" got killed""

    Pals don't have a military, so every terrorist scum is a civilian.

    I don't think that's true. They do have civilians.

    But Hamas should really stop using them as shields.
