Who Violated the Ceasefire First?
Ha'aretz's Gideon Levy, like any columnist, is entitled to argue for whatever policy he prefers, but journalistic ethics require that even Op-Eds stick to factual accuracy. Yet, in his column today advocating direct negotiations which Hamas, he writes:
The ceasefire was violated first by Israel with its unnecessary operation of blowing up a tunnel.
Of course, Israel blew up the tunnel in question the beginning of November, while Palestinians again started firing rockets into Israel just days after the June 19 ceasefire was declared.
By Aug. 28, Palestinians had fired 40 rockets and mortars at Israel.
