CNN anchor clashes with ex-Israeli defense minister, accuses Israel of 'indiscriminate' airstrikes
Naftali Bennett fires back: 'If your family was under fire, would you suggest that your government not defend you because they are hiding the guns and rockets behind civilians?'
 
Former Israeli Defense Minister Naftali Bennett fired back at a CNN International anchor who suggested Israel was using excessive force and firing indiscriminately against Hamas terrorists, asking her what she would want her country to do under extensive rocket fire.

CNN's Becky Anderson suggested to Bennett there was no way for Israel to obey "international law" when striking back at Hamas rocket attacks this week, which has targeted and killed Israeli civilians.

 "How can any strikes on Gaza, which is such a densely populated area, be targeted at military sites only?" she asked. "It doesn't suggest that Israel is supporting international law … Perhaps will you admit that these airstrikes have been indiscriminate?"

"Absolutely not," Bennett said. "Perhaps you suggest that we just lay back, let them shoot rockets at us, not shoot back, because they are hiding the rockets behind women and children. Would you do that, Becky? If your family was under fire, would you suggest that your government not defend you because they are hiding the guns and rockets behind civilians?"
