Where the US media dare not go: UK Channel 4 nails Israel over Gaza

In a July 4th interview on Channel 4, Jon Snow, Israel’s deputy ambassador to the UK, Zvi Ravner, denied that Israeli strikes in Gaza were “collective punishment” for the capture of a 19-year-old soldier. Mr Ravner said: “This is not just about the soldier, this is not collective punishment, it’s the culmination of one-year long action since we have withdrawn fully from the ‘67 line from Gaza and since then what we have got is a day in and day out rockets being fired into Israel. Jon Snow asked if targeting civilians with “the most sophisticated bombardment ever subjected to a defenceless people” was an act of terror. Watch the interview.
