I too have no particular interest in debunking a story about the planting of explosives, though, like Donald, I would note that the fence rather than any people appears to have been the target. I would, however, add a couple of points to Donald’s response.
First, according to the Ynet article, those explosives were planted over a period of 6 weeks (or 8 weeks, if one follows the headline rather than the body of the text), so it does not appear to have much to do with the killing of 61 mostly unarmed people and the wounding of more than 1000 others in a single day.
Second, I thought the following paragraph in the article was very revealing:
“16 terrorist activities took place in the past six weeks in the Gaza Division’s territory, including setting off charges, firing at Israeli forces, downing of a handful of army drones and sabotaging military and civilian infrastructures, such as the three times the Kerem Shalom goods border crossing had been torched.”
In other words, in the 6 week period running up to the Monday protests, there were just 16 examples – around one every 3 days – of what the Israelis called “terrorism”, including the setting off of explosives (presumably most of the 100 explosives allegedly planted didn’t even go off), and most of which appear to have been aimed at soldiers and military on active duty, and hence not “terrorism” at all. Again, it is hard to see how this can be considered even a vague justification for the mass killing and shooting of mainly unarmed protesters.
