The Gaza war on Youtube

According the latest news report on German TV, the current war is being played out on Youtube as well. The IDF, for example, in order to defend its claim that it is not targeting civilians, as well its claim that Hamas purposely use human shields and operate out of residential areas, is publishing videos of attacks from aircraft.

I have no idea what to make of this. Is this spin or reality?

But how do I reconcile this, which is made by the Israeli government, with the follow documentary extract, made before the current war?

Click "human shield" into Youtube and you see that the accusations go in both directions. Here's an Israeli video:

And here's one about the IDF using Palestinians:

I feel like a tennis ball being hit from court to court. Any tips anyone?

Let us pray for the safety of Palestinian civilians who held hostages by Hamas and the safety of Israeli soldiers. May this campaign end swiftly and may Hamas be annihilated. May moderate Muslims emerge victorious in the struggle for Gaza!
