Israel Take Gory Digital Wars to a Graphic New Level

By Chris Mills on at

Well, this is sorta shocking. Yesterday, Israel started live-tweeting its ongoing campagin against Gaza, telling us all about how it was blowing people up. Turns out they're also now the broadcasters of Kill TV, uploading worryingly graphic and tasteless videos of missile strikes up to YouTube.

The original video's been pulled from YouTube (by the site itself, not the Israeli Defence Force channel), but there are still versions floating around. I have to say, this is more the sort of behaviour I'd expect from terrorist groups, not nation states. No matter which side of the Israel-Palestine fence you happen to fall on, I think we can all agree this isn't going to help Israel come to a peaceful decision any time soon. [Wired]
