Croc ate children, then shed tears

al Jazeera reported the children-eating crocodile has shed its evil tears again:

Israel has apologised for an artillery barrage which killed 18 civilians including eight children in Gaza, as the Palestinian government declared three days of mourning to commemorate those who died.

At least 13 members of one extended family died as they were sleeping when tank fire hit their home in Wednesday's incident.

The killings happened a day after Israel started to withdraw its tanks from Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza after a week-long offensive in which dozens of people died.

Tzipi Livni, the Israeli foreign minister, called the deaths in Beit Hanoun "a regrettable incident".

"The Israeli military does not intend to harm civilians - that is never our aim. But in the framework of such things, incidents like these happen," Livni said.

Yeah, it just happened to Palestinian children, time and time again.
