Both Hamas and Israel are immoral

According to this article, which let's them both have it. Both are responsible for the civilian deaths in Gaza. Amnesty International has verified that Hamas uses human shields in storing munitions in and firing them from residential areas, as well as telling civilians to ignore bombing warnings. They also fire rockets indiscriminately into Israel for the express purpose, as noted in their charter, of obliterating Israel.

Israel could refrain from bombing civilian areas, despite the munitions being located therein, especially given the deaths of a large number of women and children. This undermines their claim of this being merely defending itself, which they surely could do without such indiscriminate deaths. Just giving warnings to civilians, knowing full well Hamas' strategy of using them as shields, in not a legitimate reason to proceed anyway.
