This video of a Hamas unit setting up a rocket launcher and then launching it in an urban neighborhood near a hotel and apartment buildings is celebrated by the IDF/ It proves that Hamas disregards the safety of civilians because they know it inevitably will lead to Israeli retaliation. That, in the Israeli view makes not Israel but Hamas morally culpable for any deaths.
I draw the conclusion that proportionality enters at this point. The lethality of the Hamas attack, and the likelihood of civilian casualties should inform the Israeli decision. On the Hamas side, assuming that this is a a just war of national liberation, they should consider the likelihood of retaliation, and the military importance of the rocket launch. - gwc
