While Hamas launches rockets indiscriminately at Israel’s population centers, Israel continues to be villainized by its opponents for its military operations. Despite over 1,000 targeted strikes in Gaza, civilian casualties have been kept to a minimum. This despite¬† Hamas’s penchant for hiding behind Gaza’s civilians. Below , however, are two videos indicative of the lengths to which Israel goes in order to avoid civilian casualties.

First video:

A member of the IAF is cleared for a strike, before reporting:

“Not clear, a car is on the road, heading south. A biker, too.”

the mission is aborted but then cleared once more before the same pilot declares:

“Move away from the target, someone is coming.”

In the second video a strike is aborted after the pilot reports civilian movement on a road near the target.
