Israeli Air Force General Yaron Rosen today denied that yesterday’s attack on the Gaza Strip’s only power plant was intentional, saying the nation had no interest in striking the enclave’s only source of electricity.
Gen. Rosen rather suggested the strike was unintentional, and the result of munitions “skipping” when they hit the ground and bouncing toward unintended targets.
Rosen went on to claim that in the past the Palestinians have made up the stories of such attacks, though the giant fireball and the lack of electricity to 1.8 million Gazans are both likely pretty hard to fake. He promised an investigation.
Gazans expressed doubts about the Israeli story, seeing the attack as just the latest in a long line of “collective punishment” strikes against the civilian population. Operators at the power plant say the damage will take at least a year to repair to the extent that electricity can be generated there.

Yehhh right, your mistake meant to kill people and make them suffer more, these kind of mistakes is your daily routine and ordered by your fascist regime. Lift the Gaza embargo, free the people in Gaza and give the Palestinians land back to them, now these are not a mistake, these are the historical facts that you and your regimes been doing to Palestinians and killing them for last 55 years.
These ridiculous lies are the sound jackasses make when they know what they're doing is wrong.
Who will rid the world of this scum?
they were supplied with an outdated map
They thought the plant was the USS Liberty.
I believe it was an accident just like the USS Liberty. Israel claimed they were going after an egyptian horse transport ship. I guess they were worried Egypt would get fresh mounts to attack the IDF Tanks.
With precision guided bombs and missiles I cannot comprehend how this was an accident.
of course it was an accident, they ment to hit the children's hospital
It's right here:
If you can hit this "by accident", I supposed drunken retards on cocaine in yarmulkes are manning operations.
Buuuullllsh!!!!t. Some of the Israelis are beginning to realize that they can't continue to thumb their noses at the world and that the war crimes they are committing will eventually come back to haunt them. But "skipping" munitions? Really? But I'm sure some of the US Congress will grab that little nugget and run with it today on the interview circuit…just a matter of how long it takes to appear in the talking points of the Israel-Firsters.
That's when it helps to look and act like a slob. You can pretend you were just incompetent. And then you can go back to pretending you're the smartest guys in the room (when it suits you). No honor. No honesty. No real compassion. Just some kind of immature frat boy/ Eurotrash shuffle whenever someone is on the point of restricting your right to be a douche.
So, is Israel going to pay for these "accidental" damages to the power plant? If you run your car through your neighbor's living room, you would have to pay for the repairs, right?
They sound like Karl Rove.
"No, really, it looked just like an Egyptian horse ranch to us when we attacked!!!" — Nodding Yahoo*
*On June 8, 1967, Israel attacked and tried to sink the USS Liberty, an intelligence gathering ship, killing 34 US sailors. While the attack was underway Israel kept telling the US that Egypt had attacked the ship, to trigger a US attack on Cairo. The attack was on the way to Cairo when the crew of the USS Liberty finally got past the Israeli jamming and got a message out identifying their true attackers. The strike against Cairo was recalled and the official story is that Israel mistook the USS Liberty for an Egyptian horse carrier ship, because as we all know, Egyptian horse carrier ships all have huge dish antennas all over them!
Obviously, in a situation like this, they need some "boilerplate" excuse so that the world press can dutifully pick it up and run with it for them. Follow the bouncing bomb.
Anyone who's been paying attention is aware of the fact that Israel and the US always target the infrastructure of any country they invade. Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, and now the Gaza Strip serve as prime examples.
That was some smart bomb, to make such a plausibly deniable hit. I'm sure Rosen's dog always ate his homework too.
