Israeli TV airs Gaza doctor’s pleas after children killed

Israel is preparing its people for the aftermath. Journlists will be going into Gaza and they will be reporting. Wonder what plans are in store, probably, judging from the previous (Debka) post, a new respect for Hamas and the Palestinians.

Irrespective of Israel’s military superiority, there were a lot of 18 to 20 year old conscripts fighting older people who were cornered. Even the reservists must have missed their families. And all the atrocities ….

How Hamas could fight tanks is a mystery to me. Never heard of them having anti tank weapons. And just being bombed from the air ….

Israeli TV airs Gaza doctor’s pleas after children killed

‘My girls were sitting at home planning their futures, talking, then suddenly they are being shelled’

A flare fired by Israeli forces is seen over the northern Gaza Strip on Friday. More than 1,100 Palestinians have been killed since the offensive began three weeks ago, including three daughters of Dr. Izz el-Deen Aboul Aish, a gynaecologist who worked in one of Israel’s main hospitals before Gazans were effectively sealed off.

JERUSALEM – Israeli television broadcast desperate cries for help from a Palestinian doctor on Friday after his children were killed in an Israeli attack in the Gaza Strip and troops later helped surviving members of the family.

The telephone calls created extraordinary scenes during evening news broadcasts as the doctor, a Hebrew-speaking physician who spoke regularly on Israeli television said three of his children were killed in a tank strike and others were wounded.

“My girls were sitting at home planning their futures, talking, then suddenly they are being shelled,” he said in a voice shaking with emotion. “I want to know why they were killed, who gave the order?”

Izz el-Deen Aboul Aish is a gynaecologist who worked in one of Israel’s main hospitals before Gazans were effectively sealed off behind an Israeli-led blockade on the Hamas-controlled enclave. He often gave interviews to Channel 10 television.

With Israeli journalists unable to report from the Gaza Strip independently, Aboul Aish acted as a Hebrew-speaking witness who told of the Palestinian civilians’ suffering under fire during Israel’s three-week-old offensive there.
