Israeli Minister: Gaza Casualties Don’t Tell the Story – Aron Heller (AP)
A senior Israeli Cabinet minister on Monday rejected international criticism of Israel’s open-fire policies along the Gaza border, saying the disproportionate number of Palestinian casualties does not reflect the true story.
Maj.-Gen. (res.) Yoav Gallant, who once commanded the Gaza region, urged the world not to “calculate who is right and who is wrong by the numbers of the casualties.”
“In the Second World War, 7.5 million Germans were killed and only 500,000 British. So who was the aggressor, the Germans or the British? The issue is not the numbers. The issue is who is doing what.”
