Civil engineers, who are responsible for maintaining the nations infrastructure and safety, are facing an increasing threat of being killed, and the job of protecting their lives is becoming more and more dangerous, a former head of the Israeli civil engineering agency told The Jerusalem Times.
“When civil engineers and engineers are at war, they have no choice but to do something,” said retired engineer and director of the civil engineering branch at the State of Israel’s Civil Administration, Dr. Benny Gantz.
The civil engineering community is currently under the supervision of the Civil Administration after the 2013 Gaza war. “
The more soldiers we have, the more people will be killed,” he added.
The civil engineering community is currently under the supervision of the Civil Administration after the 2013 Gaza war.
In the wake of the war, the civil engineer community was devastated, with many being laid off and many being forced to seek other jobs.
However, Gantz said that since the start of the conflict, the number of civil engineers who have been killed has fallen from 4,500 to 3,200, a reduction that has occurred despite the Israeli government’s claims that it is protecting civilians and not its own soldiers.
“We are very happy that we’ve got 3,000 civil engineers that have been put in place to protect our citizens, and we’re doing it by protecting the lives of soldiers,” Gantz told The Times.
In July 2018, the Israeli military said that it had rescued a number of civilians and soldiers during the conflict from the Gaza Strip.
However the figure was later revised down to a single civilian, a medic.
However a number that was given to the public by the Israeli army was only a few dozen.
Israel also admitted that the number killed during the Gaza war is much higher than the number who died, with the military stating that the deaths of 6,000 Palestinians, including over 1,000 civilians, were caused by “unintentional Israeli artillery shelling” of the Gaza strip.
According to a statement released by the Palestinian Ministry of the Interior, “in addition to the Palestinian civilian population of Gaza, at least 1,871 Israeli civilians, including 3,827 children, were killed, including 667 children under the age of five.”
In the same month, the UN Security Council passed a resolution condemning Israel for the use of “unlawful and indiscriminate” military tactics during the war.
Gantz, however, told The Israel Times that the Israeli forces are not allowed to use military tactics in any way that would endanger the lives or health of civilians.
“If they are going to do that, they need to tell us what they are doing and they need our permission.
We don’t have permission,” he said.
Gatz also noted that the Civil Engineering Directorate is working on a new project to build an additional tunnel under Gaza to accommodate up to a million people.
The tunnel is currently estimated to cost between $5.5 billion and $7.5 million.
However Israel has previously said that they will not build a tunnel under the Gaza city to accommodate the influx of people, as the construction would be too dangerous for the public.
In March 2018, Gatz resigned as head of Israel Civil Engineering, saying that his decision had become politically motivated.
However Gantz defended the decision and said that he has “never lost confidence in civil engineers.”
“The civil engineering department is a department that has always worked for the good of the state,” Gatz said.
“They are also the ones who build our roads, pave our sidewalks, maintain our hospitals, our schools, and our bridges.””
Civil engineers, like other civil servants, are not only our friends, but our partners in the construction of the infrastructure,” he concluded.
“They are also the ones who build our roads, pave our sidewalks, maintain our hospitals, our schools, and our bridges.”
