Shortly after the ceasefire took hold, the Israeli military’s spokesman claimed that 177 Palestinians were killed in the course of the week-long war on the Gaza Strip, and that 120 were “engaged in terrorist activities.”
No evidence was provided to back up this claim, and indeed it flies in the face of what information we’ve had of victims, with only a handful identified as top Hamas military commanders and some other strikes referencing rocket teams. The figure suggests the IDF simply subtracted women and children from the list and termed the rest presumptive terrorists.
Which isn’t that surprising, as Israeli officials, including government spokesman Mark Regev have made statements disavowing seemingly innocent people, like domestic Gazan journalists who he termed “not legitimate media” to spurn claims that Israel was deliberately attacking the media. One can only assume the slain journalists were in the “120” figure.
Interestingly the IDF figure is also the highest death toll yet reported, with the latest Gaza Health Ministry figures saying “more than 150,” and the best estimate from PCHR, which is trying to identify every single victim by name, has listed at least 90 confirmed civilians among the dead, including 30 children.

I'm surprised if they don't include male children among the "terrorists". After all they would have grown up to be "terrorists", and the Israelis are only "pre-empting" that.
Surely 11month old Omar, son of a BBC journalist, was a terrorist spreading false rumours about the most moral army in the world.
As sarcastico would say Israelis never kill "other" humans they only kill "terrorists" while the other side only kills real people.
Neither the US nor israel can come up with a reasonable definition of a terrorist. These days a terrorists is anyone those in power don't like. Whoever has power and invades some poor country is right and holy. If the invaded don't shower the foreign invadors with flowers upon invasion, they are terrorist. Hence, every Palestinian, Iraqi, Afghan, is a terrorist and his life worthless. That's the basis of israel's behavior in the region and America's behavior everywhere else.
Funny, most of the 'terrorists' had managed to shape-shift into the form of small children by the time they arrived at the hospitals and morgues.
Oh, come on Jason. If Israel killed them then they were terrorists. Everyone knows Israel never kills any innocents like children or mothers. They're almost as exceptional as America, so how could they be wrong?
The Israelis never present any evidence to back up their claims, any of them, be it Palestinian suicide bombers, Hamas rockets, terrorists killed etc It's all just words from the Israelis faithfully unquestioningly repeated by their lackeys in the Western "media" and governments of the so called Western Democracies

In answer to this claim by Israel I will try to post this photograph of a mother and her dead 'terrorist' child. I hope it comes out but if it doesn't, visit my blog to see this revealing photo and many others.
