Hamas Human shields War Crimes

Palestinian Terrorists Using Human Shields Cause The Death of a Minor…….

Israeli troops come under fire from a house in the center of the Gaza Strip, and engage with return fire. The aftermath of the gun battle leaves four terrorists dead, but regrettably a small child was included in the list of casualties. That is the sad reality of situation which sees time and again, an enemy that has no problem with placing civilians at risk, which is a severe violation of international law and constitutes a war crime.

Four terrorists were killed Sunday afternoon in a fire exchange between troops from the IDF’s Givati Brigade and a group of gunmen in the center of the Gaza Strip, the military said. IDF sources stated that this event, which took place near Gaza’s el-Bureij refugee camp, was “part of IDF operations to uproot terrorist infrastructure to prevent infiltration attempts.”

No IDF soldiers were wounded and operations in the area continued late Sunday afternoon.
Earlier Sunday, Palestinian doctors reported that a young boy had been killed in the Gaza Strip. The officials said the boy was hit by shrapnel to his head and chest; however it was not clear whether he was killed by Israeli forces operating in the area or by Palestinian gunmen who may have misfired a mortar shell.

While every death of an innocent bystander is mourned as a loss by Israel, the Arabs continue to use their civilians as human shields, which means a gross disregard for the lives of their own people. That is the reality on the ground, and Hamas bears full responsibilty for the death of that young child. More here and here. *L* KGS
