Did three battalions really spend 17 hours working against an “infrastructure” comprised of three suspects (the IDF spokesman later said five were arrested), two handguns, a commando knife, canteens and flak jackets?

[...] So what exactly was their operation there among 3,300 babies and children, around 2,000 men and women ages 40 to 100, and another 2,500 women 15 to 40?

That leaves 2,000 boys, youths and young men. A minority of them went out into the alleys to exercise their right to resist the invader. They are the age of the attackers. They have no flak jackets, helmets or knee guards. They lack military training. They have no guns. They are David, with stones and cement blocks in their hands, and they are fearless of us
