Why Israel had many fewer civilian casualties than Gaza

Israel also has their “iron dome” defense system. That also saved lives. Of course, I realize the Palestinians can’t afford an equivalent system. On the other hand, simple bomb shelters (as opposed to the kind intended to “survive” a nuclear apocalypse) shouldn’t be an unreasonable addition to the “to-do” list of any group of people in frequent conflict. A simple cellar made of thick, reinforced concrete should suffice.

In fact, its so simple that I hesitate to believe the claim that Palestinians don’t have plenty of these. How about an official survey on the matter? That would be something.
