Must be something I am missing

Yet somehow the area was not bombed to smithereens.

Gaza - Ma'an - A military funeral was held in Khan Younis Monday for a Palestinian combatant of the the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, whose corpse was retrieved from the site of earlier clashes with Israeli forces.

I always thought it was misplaced sentiment - a perversion of etiquette, if you will - preventing the Army from using mortar and machine gun on the honour guard and guests attending IRA funerals. But then my worldview has been said to lack nuance.

These are the sympathizers and supporters. They are all in the same place at once. Don't forget the cameramen.

Or the protesting "activists" when they turn up to object.
