A photo of the father whose four children were killed by the Israeli army in a vicious strike on a beach in Gaza. The New York Times says the kids' deaths was their own fault because they defied their parents' orders and went out to the beach to play.
An excerpt from, "Boys Drawn to Gaza Beach, and Into Center of Mideast Strife" by Anne Barnard, The New York Times, July 16:
The four Bakr boys were young cousins, the children of Gaza fishermen who had ordered them to stay indoors — and especially away from the beach. But cooped up for nine days during Israeli bombardments, the children defied their parents and went out Wednesday afternoon, the eldest shooing away his little brother, telling him it was too dangerous.My oh my. How low can you go US media? This is beyond shameful.
As they played on and around a jetty in the late-afternoon sun, a blast hit a nearby shack. One boy was killed instantly. The others ran. There was a second blast, and three more bodies littered the sand. One was charred, missing a leg, and another lay motionless, his curly head intact, his legs splayed at unnatural angles.The Israeli military acknowledged later that it had launched the strike, which it said was aimed at Hamas militants, and called the civilian deaths “a tragic outcome.”
