John Kerry despre operatiunea Israelului in Gaza: "E un iad de operatiune punctuala, e un iad de operatiune punctuala"
The Guardian: Comentariile lui John Kerry facute la un microfon ramas deschis sugereaza frustrarea sa cu privire la numarul victimelor civile din Gaza
Inaintea unui emisiuni TV din SUA, John Kerry a fost surprins la un microfon ramas deschis, declarandu-i unuia dintre asistentii sai cu privirile la operatiunea Israelului din Gaza:
"E un iad de operatiune punctuala, e un iad de operatiune punctuala"
aratandu-si in mod vizibil frustrarea cu privire la numarul de victime facute de bombardamentele Israeliene in Gaza.
Remarca sa vine ca un fel de raspuns la aprecierile facute de primul-ministru israelian, Benjamin Netanyahucare vorbind mai devreme la CNN, cu privire la operatiile israeliene din Gaza, a declarat ca raspunsul Israelian la atacurile cu rachete din Gaza a fost foarte masurat si s-a incercat sa fie cat se poate de punctual."

'It's a hell of a pinpoint operation' captured on open microphone
Kerry backs Israel's right to self-defence but stands by remarkstheguardian.com, Sunday 20 July 2014 16.14 BST
The secretary of state, John Kerry, suggested in overheard remarks that he would soon visit the region in view of the Gaza crisis
The secretary of state, John Kerry, on Sunday appeared to criticise Israels claims about the targeted scope of its attacks on Gaza, as a open microphone caught him talking to an aide ahead of a TV interview.
Its a hell of a pinpoint operation, its a hell of a pinpoint operation, Kerry, who was appearing on Fox News Sunday as part of a tour of all five main US talkshows, said to an aide on the phone, in a frustrated tone.
Israel has launched air strikes, artillery fire and a ground operation in Gaza. According to health officials in the Palestinian territory, 340 people have been killed, nearly 2,400 wounded and tens of thousands displaced in 12 days of fighting.
Ahead of his interview with Fox News Sunday, Kerry said: Weve got to get over there. Thank you, John. I think, John, we ought to go tonight. I think its crazy to be sitting around.
In his interview on CNN's State of the Union, Kerry said President Barack Obama would ask him to go to the Middle East soon to aid in efforts to secure a ceasefire.
Earlier, speaking on CNN, the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, said Israels response to rocket attacks from Gaza had been very measured and trying to be as pinpointed as we can.
What choice do we have? Netanyahu said. We have to protect ourselves. We try to target the rocketeers, we do. And all civilian casualties are not intended by us but actually intended by Hamas who want to pile up as many civilian dead as they can because somebody said they use telegenically dead Palestinians for the cause. They want the more dead the better.
The Fox host Chris Wallace confronted Kerry about his comments and asked if he was implying that the Israeli government had gone too far in its Gaza operations.
Kerry said Israel had a right to defend itself but stood by his comments.
Its tough to have these kind of operations. I reacted, obviously, in a way that anybody does with respect to young children and civilians, Kerry said. War is tough. Ive said that publicly and I've said it again. We defend Israels right to do what it is doing.
We support Israels right to defend itself against rockets that are continuing to come in. Hamas has started its process of rocketing after Israel was trying to find the people who killed three young [people] one American kid, three young Israelis.
Kerrys candid comments were in contrast to his more scripted response on ABCs This Week. On that show, Kerry dismissed claims from Palestinians that the operation in Gaza was a massacre and a war crime.
That's rhetoric that we've heard many, many times, he said. What they need to do is stop rocketing Israel and accept the ceasefire.
It's very, very clear that they've tunneled under Israel. They've tried to come out of those tunnels with people, with handcuffs and tranquilliser drugs to capture Israeli citizens and hold them for ransom, or worse they've been rocketing Israel with thousands of rockets.
