That is how you see it. Other side will see it as Israel killing thousand and thousand civilians.

The same people shouting now about "thousands and thousands" of civilians are the same people who had an issue when it was "hundreds" or "tens" or even a single Palestinian who may or may not have been a member of Hamas. No amount of PR will fix that.

Bernie saying no ceasefire is the equivalent of Ben and Jerry's making a free the hostages flavor.

Me? Nothing.
But it will make them think twice about where they should be when Bernie has said no ceasefire.
I think that is wishful thinking.

I totally get how the casualties look like to a detached party.
I am not expecting anyone to be okay with it.
I am not okay with it.
What i don't understand is how the blame is not being placed squarely on Hamas.
Only Hamas can reduce the civilian casualties to 0, by surrendering.

No matter how careful Israel is, and no matter how many of their own soldiers they risk, civilians will die, that is war.
The longer the war goes own, the more innocents will die.
Hamas can end this war today.
Israel needs a little more time.

I watched it shortly after it was released, My assessment of it at the time was similar to yours.
Overall balanced in accurate.
I guess we just disagree on what the "inaccuracies" are

We probably agree on many of the inaccuracies.
One of the main points is the two sides are entrenched in their positions and how the same word or phrase means different things to each side.

Reports coming in that Israeli forces killed Sinwar in an operation inside of shifa hospital. Waiting for the ODF to confirm

ETA: no official place reporting this, so looks like fakenews

Military leader. Political leadership is on paid leave so the highest ranking member in Gaza.

Possibly fakenews, but:

FTFY

If this "message is spot on" we are in pretty bad shape in this country (not that we don't have other indications for that), so shallow and superficial, using such vulgar language.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

The only channel of those I follow on Telegram that mentioned it was Daniel Amram (you might remember him from the Neria Kraus fiasco), he posted it with a question mark, and just now posted that it is fake news.

Though reports are of unprecedented air and ground attacks on Gaza. One report saying that IDF indicated they are going for Hamas operations based in hospitals.
