Feinstein on Tuesday announced she is “deeply disappointed” with U.S. ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley for taking action to stop the UN Security Council from opening an investigation into Israel’s defensive actions to stop the Hamas-organized border attack.
Feinstein was clearly motivated by news media reports citing the “Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza” claiming that 58 Palestinians were killed during Monday’s riots.
Three Gazans were shot while trying to plant explosive devices at the border fence, while others were killed attempting to open fire on Israeli soldiers, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said.
Hamas correctly estimated that the ensuing casualty count will bring international news media attention to the humanitarian crisis in Gaza and thrust the issue to the center of the foreign policy debate.
The Gaza riot campaign, with help from the international news media, puts Hamas back at the forefront and signals that it is useful to financially support the terrorist movement once again.
In light of yesterday’s horrific violence in Gaza, in which more than 50 Palestinians were killed and more than 2000 wounded by Israeli snipers, it’s important to understand the desperate situation out of which these protests have arisen. pic.twitter.com/WLrlGxJKDo
