'Palestinian' doctor's daughter may have pieces of Grad rocket in her head

It's the story that has kept Israelis occupied most of the weekend. Three daughters and a niece of Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish, a 'Palestinian' doctor who lives in Gaza and works at Tel Aviv's Tel HaShomer Hospital, where he is the director of the fertility clinic, were killed - allegedly by an IDF shell - in Beit Lehiya, Gaza on Friday. Here's raw video of the doctor getting word of his daughters' death during a newscast on Israel's Channel 10 on Friday.

The IDF allowed ambulances to come straight to the house, and the doctor's daughter, niece and brother were rushed to the hospital - first to Barzilay in Ashkelon and then to Tel HaShomer.

From the beginning, the IDF maintained that they were responding to sniper fire from the doctor's home.

On Saturday, Dr. Abuelaish held a press conference at Tel HaShomer, and Levana Stern, the mother of three IDF soldiers wandered in and started screaming at the hospital for allowing him to hold a press conference. This is from al-Jazeera:

Ms. Stern was interviewed on the radio this morning and she said that she was enraged that the doctor was being given a platform while the war was going on.

The story has made headlines all over the world. Here's an example from the New York Times (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).

Israel Television has just reported that shrapnel removed from the daughter and the niece, who are now in Tel HaShomer, shows that they may have pieces of metal that are from a Grad-type Katyusha rocket - and not from any ammunition used by the IDF - in their heads. Israel doesn't shoot Katyusha rockets. Hamas does.

The saddest part of this is that Dr. Abuelaish is apparently the rare 'Palestinian' who strives for peace. Apparently, even he could not keep the terrorists from using his home.

actually, it is probably precisely because this doctor wants peace with israel that the terrorists fired from his house with his family inside, knowing it would be shot at.

Some of them are used against their will to fight Israel and the terrorists don't care their own people get hurt and killed in the process. Dr. Abuelaish's daughter didn't deserve it. Then neither did Twitto or any of the other countless Jewish victims of this war. As long as the Arabs hate the Jews more than they love their own children, Arab children will continue to be the victims. That's the saddest aspect of all but Jews are not going to commit national suicide to spare the Arabs the consequences of their own behavior.

Hamas probably did use this man's house thinking it would reap great negative press for Israel if a Palestinian doctor who worked in Tel Aviv had his house shelled -- meaning Jews make no distinctions when it comes to killing Palestinians. But this is another perfect example of projection of their own bloody doctrine onto Jews. Twisted ...

Please post a link to some MSM (Israeli or otherwise) where the statement on the Grad pieces in the girls head is described.
