Use another infobox and changes the descriptions[edit]

Template:Infobox civilian attack have more fitting parameters so I think it should be used instead. It is used in articles like Haifa Oil Refinery massacre. The parameters that could be added is target and victims. Right now it says "Irgun, Lehi, and Arab villagers" after "Participants", which is misleading. Date, location, outcome and deaths is the only other parameters.

The massacre did not trigger the 1948 Palestinian exodus but did increase it. It had already been going on for months. Benny Morris writes in The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem Revisited at page 262 "However, the most important immediate effect of the massacre and of the media atrocity campaign that followed was to trigger and promote fear and further panic flight from Palestine's villages and towns". In 1948: A History of the First Arab-Israeli War on page 127, he writes "The most important immediate effect of the media atrocity campaign, however, was to spark fear and further panic flight from Palestine’s villages and towns". He also writes about the effect it had on the Arab countries' decision to intervene, which I think should be added too. --IRISZOOM (talk) 20:55, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

I have no objection with this proposal. Pluto2012 (talk) 04:38, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
I have added the new template. However, I noticed there is no "Outcome" parameter but I still think this new template is better. --IRISZOOM (talk) 00:39, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
