I also felt fear for Palestinians because I knew Israelis would react with demonic fury, heedless of how many victims they claim.
I was partly right. Israeli military and paramilitary forces launched an all-out effort to find the boys and to find who did it, taking many prisoners who were sure to be tortured (Israeli courts have allowed the use of torture in their so-called, “ticking bomb” scenarios) and causing destruction in their path.

Children are always innocents, their killing can never be justified, even when they may be found carrying guns. It is bad enough that people dismissively kill other innocents (non-combatants) but those who kill children must surely rank among the lowest forms of humanity, along with those who permit such killings.
