Oops! Israel Killed more Palestinian Civilians

The number of Palestinian civilians killed by Israel dwarfs the number of civilians killed by Palestinian resistors to the Israeli occupation. Below is an example of many:
3 Palestinian Civilians Killed in Ongoing Israeli Airstrikes

Three Palestinian civilians, including a thirteen-year-old were killed Wednesday when an Israeli missile hit their car. Israel called the attack an “error” and said it was targeting militants. The killings came one day after nineteen Palestinians lost their lives—the highest single-day Palestinian death toll in more than a year.

Of course it's the militants' fault, right? If they weren't resisting the Israeli occupation of their land, which began in 1948, this wouldn't have happened.

What was the reason that they started occupying the Gaza Strip in 1948? Your ignorance is astounding. It was in 1967 during the six-day war that mostly everyone, with a knowledge of the history, would say the Israeli occupation began. Why did Israel occupy the land? Because they were attacked by Egypt, Jordan and Syria. The Gaza Strip was actually occupied by Egypt (based on the UN definition) up until 1967. The Israelis pulled out their military from the Gaza Strip in 2005, but since then the rocket attacks onto Israel have increased up until the latest truce, which Hamas ended.
