Permalink PUKE READ: Israel tried to limit civilian casualties in Gaza - Dempsey

The top US Army official says the United States is learning from Israel’s tactics on how to limit civilian casualties in a war [sic], despite the international outcry over the regime’s brutality in Gaza. Army General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Thursday that the Pentagon has sent a team to see what lessons could be learned from the recent Israeli invasion of Gaza on "how to limit civilian casualties". Dempsey said the Pentagon had sent the team of senior officials and non-commissioned officers three months ago "to include the measures they took to prevent civilian casualties and what they did with tunneling" in US military operations. He [falsely] claimed the Israeli military went to “extraordinary lengths” to limit civilian casualties in the 50-day Gaza war. The remarks came as the recent war has been widely condemned by the international community over the killing of civilians including women and children. Even, the White House criticized Israel for causing “indefensible and unacceptable” deaths during the war. At least 2,140 Palestinians were killed during the recent Gaza war, mostly civilians. During the operation, Israel even attacked UN-run schools, prompting the Amnesty International to condemn Israel’s “callous indifference” to the carnage caused by attacks on civilian targets.
