Unfortunately, Hamas has a long history of using its own people as human shields. It fires its rockets from amongst the population of Gaza and then aims them at the population of Israel. Under international law, this is a war crime.
To accomplish peace, the international community should make it clear to Hamas that using the population of Gaza as human shields won't be tolerated. It also must be stressed to Hamas that they must stop their attacks on Israel.
