' Israeli Ambassador to US Ron Dermer Faces the Nation '

#AceWorldNews – ISRAEL – July 14 – Israeli ambassador to the U.S. and Face the Nation guest Ron Dermer said Sunday while Hamas was deliberately targeting civilians during its fighting, Israel would continue to make all efforts to avoid killing or hurting civilians on its end.

Host Bob Schieffer played a video during the interview from the Israel Defence Forces of a pilot being told that a target set to be attacked in Gaza had children inside, and thus he backed off.

“When our pilots are targeting a particular site, they try to make sure that it’s clear of civilians,” Dermer said. “There are many, many military operations that are called off, because we see that there are civilians that are going to come into harm’s way. That’s the difference between us and Hamas. Hamas is deliberately targeting our civilians.

They want to kill as many civilians in Israel as possible.”
