Israeli Defense Minister: “In Gaza, what’s important is to kill”… “even if it’s a three-year old child.”

As the Israeli government continues to hint that it will be launching a full-scale invasion of Gaza in the coming days, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak told Israeli Army Radio, “For the moment, what’s important is to kill all those who want to fire Qassam [shells] against Israel.”

He recently implemented a policy whereby Israeli soldiers are ordered to shoot any known Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip, regardless of whether there were homemade shells (so-called ‘Qassams’) fired from that location or not.

“The Israeli Army will continue the extremely effective operations of its special forces in the Gaza Strip,” he said. “Each day that passes brings us closer to a vigorous military operation.”

But the Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is apparently hesitant to launch such and invasion so soon after a peace meeting with the Palestinian Authority. He is afraid it will make Israel look like they don’t want peace. In fact, Israel has killed fifteen Palestinians since the one-day peace meeting last week, and conducted a dozen incursions into the West Bank.

Israel already has ‘kill zones’ in the Gaza Strip – areas where soldiers are ordered to ‘shoot anything that moves, even if its a three-year old child.’ The new directive by Barak expands that ‘kill zone’ to any known Hamas positions. These could be extremely numerous, given that Hamas has control of the government in Gaza (after being democratically elected last year), and the majority of Palestinians in Gaza support the party.
