The Spanish press about the Operation Pillar of Cloud (I).

On Wednesday, November 14th, 2012, the Tzahal began the Operation Pillar of Cloud (also known as Pillar of Defense) through the targeted killing of Ahmed Jabari, who was a key member of Hamas' Izz ad-Din al Qassam Martyrs Brigades; this was in response to rocket and mortar attacks perpetrated by Hamas and other terrorist organizations based on the Gaza Strip during the last years. Israel has been targeting other locations since then, while Palestinian terrorists have been firing more rockets.

Spanish daily El País published an article by its correspondet in Jerusalem, Ana Carbajosa, on Sunday, November 18th, under the title El Ejército israelí golpea a la población civil de la franja de Gaza (The Israeli Army hits the Gaza strip's civilian population). The article contains the photograph of two Palestinian children killed; only in an annexed photogallery pictures of Israeli civilians under fire are also shown. The article also deals with the Israeli strike against a building used both by the press and Hamas itself, but omitting that this Palestinian terrorist organization was present there.

Meanwhile, online newspaper MÁSPúblico has published an article on Monday, November 19th, under the title Los muertos de Gaza tienen nombre (The dead from Gaza have a name). At the moment of writing this article of my own, 84 names of Palestinians killed during the Operation Pillar of Cloud have already been published. MÁSPúblico's article reads that the list will be updated. Not a single Israeli civilian killed is named.
