FactCheck.org Summary: “Baldwin said those killed and injured while attempting to deliver aid to the Gaza Strip were ‘innocent victims.’ In that instance, the U.N. found the Israeli military used ‘unreasonable’ force on unarmed victims and recommended compensation. As for terrorists, Baldwin has condemned the ‘abhorrent rocket and mortar attacks’ against Israel and the ‘continued terrorist action by Hamas and other militant groups.’”
