Cell Phones and Terror War

How does a military, fighting terrorists who embed themselves aomngst civilians, keep civilian causalties to a minimum? Easy. Make a phone call. According to the Jerusalem Post, the IDF is calling Palestinians in Gaza and warning them to stay away from terrorist houses and other infrastructures. It's simple. A call comes through with a recorded warning. A few hours later the terrorist house is blown up. Can't say they didn't warn you.

The IDF operates with strict rules of conduct. One of the goals of the IDF is to avoid civilian casualties whenever possible. The phone calls are made to civilians, in order to get them out of the way of danger.
