Retired Israeli Major General Amos Yadlin said that Israel does more to avoid civilian casualties than the United States has in its military operations.
On Thursday’s “Wolf” on CNN, he argued the IDF is “doing more than the Americans have done in Fallujah and more than the Americans have done in Germany in the second World War” to avoid harming innocent civilians. “We are the moralist army in the world … I am really willing to have any kind of debate with American journalists, spokesmen about how Israel is doing it compared to how America [has] done it” he added.
Yadlin also accused Hamas of covering up the number of terrorists killed by the Israelis, stating, “Hamas military terrorists are killed in [the] hundreds, and they are not reporting it. They, of course, are putting all the cameras on the civilians…they will show you only the civilians, and the civilians [are harmed] because of the tactics of the terrorists.”
