It’s like this:
- Hamas fired rockets at Jerusalem indiscriminately, with no regard for civilians, schools or hospitals.
- Israel fired back, but with targeted strikes aimed at the Hamas rocket installation and other military sites.
- Hamas fired more rockets at Jerusalem, again with no attempt to avoid civilians.
Makes sense so far, right? Cause and effect.
Yes, Hamas fired first. Doesn’t matter. It was self-defense.
Yes, Hamas made no attempt to select strategic military targets and avoid civilian, school or hospital casualties. It was self-defense.
If this makes your brain hurt, congratulations! It means you’ve successfully retained your intelligence and common sense.
