Israel Uses Palestinians for Target Practice
Soldiers shoot Palestinians for sport.
by Stephen Lendman
Israelis do that and much more. Gazans are locked down in isolation. They live in a virtual war zone. Incursions, bombings, and border killings happen regularly.
Bogus threats are claimed. Civilians are killed or injured in cold blood. Farmers are shot in their fields. Children straying too close to Israel's border are murdered for sport. Israeli soldiers literally use them for target practice. It's no joke. Little boys and girls die or get injured.
Others end up disabled. Many are grievously traumatized. Western media reports ignore what they and adults endured for decades. Washington aids and abets the worst of Israel's war machine.
On September 1, Israeli F-16s attacked Gaza's Al-Maqousy Towers residential area. Palestinian medical sources reported two injuries. Buildings were also damaged. Wounded residents were hospitalized.
These type attacks happen with sickening frequency. Gazans wonder what's next. Imagine living in neighborhoods vulnerable to ground or air attacks. Imagine not knowing from one day to the next if you'll live, die, or be grievously harmed.
