Israel is aiming for child targets now.

Four Palestinian children were killed and one was critically wounded on a Gaza beach on Wednesday by a shell fired by an Israeli naval gunboat, a Palestinian health official said.

Asked about the incident, an Israeli military spokesman in Tel Aviv said he was checking the report.

“The kids were playing football on the beach. They were all … under the age of 15,” said Ahmed Abu Hassera, 22.

“When the first shell hit the land, they ran away but another shell hit them all,” said Abu Hassera, whose shirt was stained with blood.

“It looked as if the shells were chasing them,” he told Reuters.

Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesman for the Gaza Health Ministry, said four of the youngsters were killed and a fifth youth was in critical condition. “This is a cowardly crime,” he said.

They aren't "aiming" for children. It's an unfortunate situation but they aren't aiming at kids.

What do you call it if one rocket misses the kids, and the next is aimed better?

They are following Hamas's lead.

Propaganda and sensationalizing at its finest.

1) Money

2) God, people think God told us to protect them

3) Fear, they have a lot of bombs we don't want used against us

It's a war zone, unfortunately, civilians sometimes get killed in a war zone. It's horribly sad, but its certainly not the first time this has happened in history.

Reporting the sad facts of a war is not sensationalizing it, it's hard to comprehend how humans can act like this. That's the sensational part.
