Consequences Of Gaza Operation Felt In Israel With Suicides and Moves Away From Border

This summer’s brutal assault on the people of Gaza by the Israeli government is still yielding casualties. While the operation itself cost 66 Israeli soldiers their lives, in the past month alone three Israeli soldiers who participated in Operation Protective Edge have committed suicide. The suicides are the latest indication of the psychological damage done to Israeli soldiers from participating in the war on Gaza. The IDF medical corps is said to have treated over 100 soldiers for mental health problems both during and after the military campaign that killed over 2,100 Palestinians. The overwhelming majority of the Palestinians killed were civilians, many children.

As the Mighty Wurlitzer of war cranks into gear yet again, I can’t help but wonder if war itself has become the singular cause upon which all news media agree, and no matter the opinion of those affected by it, they’re naturally going to sell any old war with just this sort of embarrassing fervor.
