To make this very clear,
if the IDF fires back at this man, tomorrow's news will report:
Israel kills Militant and Five Civilian Bystanders, including three children.
And people will read that and condemn Israel for being careless, if not intentional, for killing innocents, especially children.
People will concede Israel should fight the terrorists in theory, but declare they are doing it all wrong if they kill that many innocents.
Remember this photograph the next time you read civilians were killed along side "resistants".
