The Israeli military has admitted that its bloody crackdown on unarmed
Palestinian protesters was “accurate and measured.”
The Israel Defense Forces, which shot 773 Gazans with live ammunition,
likewise said, “we know where every bullet landed.”
Israel’s military made this admission in posts on Twitter,
before promptly deleting the tweets.
The Real News has archived and documented these tweets.
On Friday, March 30, tens of thousands of Gazans living
under a suffocating and illegal decade-long Israeli blockade
held a massive peaceful march on the Gaza border,
demanding the right Palestinian refugees have under
international law to return to the homeland from which Israel expelled them.
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) met the march
with a barrage of bullets, mowing down unarmed protesters
in a massacre that immediately prompted international outrage.
More than 1,400 Palestinians were injured in the IDF’s attack,
according to Palestinian medical officials. Israeli soldiers
shot 773 Gazan protesters with live ammunition, killing at least 16 people.
The day after the protest, on March 31, the IDF published a series of posts
on its official Twitter account. The Israeli military
referred to the unarmed protest as a “riot” and an “organized terrorist operation.”
“Yesterday we saw 30,000 people; we arrived prepared
and with precise reinforcements,” the IDF tweeted.
“Nothing was carried out uncontrolled; everything was accurate and measured,
and we know where every bullet landed.”
Soon after writing this, the IDF deleted its six-tweet thread.
The Real News documented the full deleted Twitter thread by archiving the cached version of the official IDF account.
