The former Commander of the British Armed Forces in Afghanistan, Col. Richard Kemp, has explained the IDF’s efforts to avoid civilian casualties.
Col. Richard Kempt served with NATO in the United Nations. Commanded troops in the Northern Ireland, Bosnia and Macedonia and participated in the Gulf War. He spent considerable time in Iraq since 2003 invasion, and worked on International Terrorism for the UK Governments joint Intelligence Committee.
“The Israeli Defense Forces did more to safeguard the right of civilians in a combat zone, than any other army in the history of warfare.
Hamas like Hizbollah, are experts at driving the media agenda. Both will always have people available giving interviews condemning Israeli Forces for war crimes. They are adept at staging and distorting incidents.”
