Many states and armed groups use explosive violence in urban areas, and its effects are inherently indiscriminate. Like most democracies whose air wars kill large numbers of civilians, Israel claims the moral high ground. By contrast, according to Israel, Hamas was targeting Israeli civilians directly and intentionally. That is because explosive weapons in densely populated urban areas simply cannot be used in a precision manner or be limited in the ways envisioned by the Geneva Conventions. In Gaza, for example, hundreds of civilians were killed and over 1,000 injured by "precision" weapons Israel claimed were aimed solely at Hamas.
