EoZ//As with Cast Lead, the media is relying on PCHR (and, worse, on the Hamas health ministry) to determine how many of the dead in Gaza are civilian and how many are terrorists.
Remember: PCHR only counts a person as a “militant” if he is, in their opinion, actively engaging in military activities at the time of his death.
So while I don’t know about this person either way, PCHR says:
At approximately 14:10 on Monday, 19 November 2012, an Israeli warplane fired a missile at a civilian car that was traveling in al-Saftawi Street in Jabalya, in which Hussam Fayez Hamdan Abdul Jawad, 32, was traveling. The car was destroyed and Abdul Jawad was killed.
Jawad may very well have been a member of a terror group, but PCHR is not going to say – he was just driving, not preparing to fire a rocket.
