As Israel continues to plead that Hamas acts inhumanely by using innocents as shields and forcing them into death, a report was released exposing these facts.

From the article:
Palestinian civilians have accused Hamas of forcing them to stay in homes from which gunmen shot at Israeli soldiers during the recent hostilities in Gaza, the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera reported Thursday.

More than 1,250 Palestinians were reportedly killed during Israel's offensive against Hamas in the coastal territory. Israel has been harshly criticized for the large number of civilians among the Palestinian dead, of whom they numbered more than half according Gaza officials.

We've seen in the past the Palestinians ability to blow up numbers of casualties in order to generate more anger towards Israel(remember Jenin when they claimed a masscre? When in fact only dozens were killed). Here's a quote from a doctor in Gaza: a doctor at Gaza City's Shifa Hospital as disputing the number of Palestinians said to have been killed in the campaign.
"It's possible that the death toll in Gaza was 500 or 600 at the most, mainly youths aged 17 to 23 who were enlisted by Hamas - who sent them to their deaths," he said.

Again, a reflection of the people we're dealing with.
