Israel is facing a new problem:-
Israel halted an airstrike against the house of a suspected Palestinian militant in Gaza over the weekend, after the family ignored a warning from the Israeli military and neighbors flocked to the house in numbers to prevent the bombing.
On Sunday, hundreds of Palestinians, including the Palestinian prime minister, manned the house outside - on balconies and the roof - throughout the day. They declared a victory for "popular resistance" as Israel, under criticism for killing civilians in such strikes, called it another example of Palestinians using civilians to shield military activity...But Palestinians celebrated it as a possibly potent new defense against air raids that Israel may find difficult to counter.
The strike was aimed against the house of leaders of the militant group the Popular Resistance Committees...The military spokesman said the attack on the house was called off late Saturday after a routine telephone warning to evacuate the house was ignored. "We didn't want to harm civilians," he said.
Well, EG suggests, why not have the army simply begin calling up different potential locations to warn about an upcoming airstrike, starting at one a day and then working it up to two and three a day.
Hundreds of Arabs running around like, as we say, chickens without a head. Rushing about, getting tired, getting bothered.
Within a few days, we should have the problem solved.
A comment I received from US:-
Winkie, I just got out of the car after hearing a BBC radio interview with the human shielders and thought of exactly the same idea. Also as it’s mainly women, if they’re out all night protecting these animals perhaps the birth rate will go down!
