IDF Spokesman: IDF to allow attacks against Israeli civilians but not Israeli soldiers

IDF Spokesman: IDF to allow attacks against Israeli civilians but not
Israeli soldiers

Dr. Aaron Lerner Date: 18 January 2009

In a live interview on Israel Television Channel Two News, IDF Spokesman
Brigadier-General Avi Benayahu, explained that in light of the ceasefire,
IDF forces operating inside the Gaza Strip face stricter rules of
engagement.

He gave as an example of the stricter rules that the IDF did not strike a
rocket launcher positioned between two schools that fired rockets towards
Israel.

On the other hand, Benayahu noted that IDF forces in the Gaza Strip have
instructions to return fire to protect themselves.

The news anchor declined to ask Benayahu why the IDF saw it fit to allow
rocket attacks against Israeli civilians when human shields might be hurt
but did not apply the same restriction when it came to the defense of IDF
forces.
