False Israeli Casualty Numbers?

gazaMore Israeli casualties in Gaza than what is being reported? According to al-Jazeera’s Arabic site, yes.  Citing separate ‘resistance’ fighters, the story follows a familiar modus operandi employed by the Arab media for years. If the truth hurts, simply alter it or at least propagandize it.

Abu Alsagd of Gaza indicated that, “Israel does not want the losses to raise the morale of the resistance and the citizens in the Gaza strip.” …Abu Mujahid of resistant Nasser Saladin Brigades, stated that at the beginning of the incursion, “dozens of improvised explosive devices planted in the ground went off and we heard screams and watched as soldiers rushed to their aid, but the occupation has not been injured and killed in these operations?”

Further down in the article, an expert on Israeli affairs in Gaza added that Israel, “does not announce its losses because it would lead to internal pressures on the Israeli government and the occupation army.”
