BBC News asks whether Gaza hospitals and schools are legitimate targets
|BBC News - 4 August 2014||
A BBC News website page has asked whether hospitals and schools (in Gaza) can be legitimate targets during a war, a question that rightly is normally not open to debate during conflicts. The article opens with an endorsement for such war crimes from an Israeli student who "explains why she thinks hospitals and UN shelters are legitimate targets for Israeli rockets"
Update (5 August 2014 10:30): BBC News appear to have changed the headline for this page to "Gaza conflict: Contrasting views on targeting". The updated headline can be seen on the article's page.
Headline: Israel-Gaza conflict: Are hospitals and schools a legitimate target?
Introduction: Sophie Tal, 23, is a history student at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She has two brothers and a boyfriend serving in the Israeli army and explains why she thinks hospitals and UN shelters are legitimate targets for Israeli rockets.
Quote: "In this case targeting those buildings is the moral and right thing to do."
