IDF marking off-limits buildings in Gaza

Shavua tov - a good week to everyone.

The IDF has been marking its maps to update the buildings that are off limits for IDF actions in a future war in Gaza.
A year after Operation Cast Lead, the IDF is continuing to update its maps and highlight international and humanitarian institutions - adding several hundred in the past year - to prevent them from being targeted in a future conflict, The Jerusalem Post has learned.

During the operation, which began a year ago next Sunday, the IDF distributed maps filled with over 1,500 dots, designating buildings that were off-limits to all air force and ground force commanders. These dots marked hospitals, United Nations facilities, schools, and homes of foreigners and journalists.

The constant updating of the maps underlies the Israeli assessment that a future conflict with Hamas could be around the corner and that the IDF needs to be prepared at all times.

Despite this work, carried out by the IDF's Gaza Coordination and Liaison Administration before Cast Lead, Israel has been accused of intentionally targeting civilian infrastructure, including hospitals and UN compounds.
I'm sure the 'Palestinians' are making similar maps.


The map at the top is a map the IDF produced of where Hamas hid ammunition among civilians in Gaza City during Operation Cast Lead.

Ashkenazi is just one of the many I had in mind. Open up an Israel Government directory to list everyone else.
