Israel VS Palestine Conflict
From the kidnap of 3 Israel teenagers, Israel arrested more than 300 Palestinians. Isn't that overreaction? I believe 30 Palestinians is enough. Unless Israel has strong evidence that more than 300 Palestinians are guilty.
Because of that, Hamas and Islamic Jihad launch 1,100 rockets (source: IDF) that cause 1 Israeli died on July 15, 2014 (Today). While Israel since June 30 has attack 1,576 terror targets in Gaza with either air strikes or naval bombardment. Well, if 1 terror target get 10 missiles from Israel, at least Israel launch 15,760 missiles to Gaza that kill 194 people now. And this number will be higher and higher.
1 Israeli against 194 Palestinians and the number of dead Palestinians are quickly getting bigger and bigger.
Israel with its air force that has thousands of jet fighters, millions of rocket and missiles, naval ships, tanks, etc should be wiser than that. Fighting thousands of militias among 1.7 civilians in Gaza is not a war. It's a massacre.

Everything You Need To Know About The Israel-Gaza Conflict
Tensions were ignited in June when three Israeli teenagers, one with American citizenship and all seminary students, were kidnapped while hitchhiking in the West Bank and killed on June 12 and their bodies were discovered June 30. Within days, Israel arrested more than 300 Palestinians, many of them members of Hamas. Hamas warned Israel it had "opened up the gates of hell" with its actions.
On the night the boys' bodies were found, a barrage of rockets were launched from Gaza at Israel and Israeli warplanes carried out numerous air strikes in Gaza.
On July 2, a Palestinian teenager was kidnapped and burned to death in apparent retaliation. The death triggered riots in East Jerusalem, a largely Palestinian area. Three Israelis have been arrested and charged with his death.
The attacks quickly escalated. Hamas and Islamic Jihad have fired rockets with a reach that Israel had not previously seen, with air raid sirens going off as far away as Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa.
According to the Israeli Defense Forces, Israel has hit 1,576 terror targets in Gaza with either air strikes or naval bombardment in its Operation Protective Edge. The Palestinian Health Ministry says more than 190 people have been killed in Gaza and more than 1,300 have been injured since the operation began. The IDF claims nearly 1,100 rockets have been launched at Israel in the last week, 845 of which have hit Israel and nearly 200 were intercepted by the Iron Dome.
