Ten people are confirmed dead. The Jewish Telegraph Agency reports that most were children. The IDF launched separate attacks on the Shifa Hospital, the main hospital in Gaza City, as well as a park next to the Hospital. Witnesses report that an Israeli drone hit the Outpatient Clinic for the Hospital

The IDF claimed that it was not responsible for the attack on the Hospital unsurprisingly blaming it on Hamas.

Who targets a hospital and a park? Why? How can these be construed as legitimate targets?

I know the Israelis are denying any involvement, but I find that hard to believe. As soon as the IDF announces that it will investigate the incident, you know the cover-up is being executed.

Has the IDF ever found themselves culpable after one of these investigations? I think not. They just stonewall until the press loses interest - which is always too goddamn quick. The American press has the attention span of a two year old. The Israelis are masters at providing shiny objects to distract them.

Here is some great video of Hamas missiles being intercepted. That's a much better visual than some rubble around a Hospital and some bloody craters in a public park. What were those children doing in that park anyway? Were Hamas operatives hiding under the monkey bars, or the teeter-totter?

I guess the lesson is that parks and hospitals are dangerous places to be Palestinian, just like every other place in Gaza. I'm sick of this slaughter or innocents. I go back to the question I started with; "Who targets a hospital and a park?" What kind of person does this?

I know someone will argue that Hamas launches random missiles into Israel which might harm Israeli children, but in this case, and so many others, someone in an IDF uniform deliberately targeted a hospital and a park, for god;s sake!

How can they justify that? It is beyond my understanding

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
