Presently, a honest Italian journalist.

Bringing out the old stuff produces more dead Arabs, fortunately they don’t make it into Israel to cause terror and death there.

Italian journalist Gabriele Barbati said he was able to speak freely about witnessing a Hamas misfire that killed nine children at the Shati camp, confirming the Israel Defense Forces version of events, but only after leaving Gaza, “far from Hamas retaliation.”

On Twitter, Barbati, Jerusalem Correspondent for Radio Popolare Milano, and a former reporter for Sky Italia, in Beijing, said, “Out of #Gaza far from #Hamasretaliation: misfired rocket killed children yday [yesterday] in Shati. Witness: militants rushed and cleared debris.”

He said, “@IDFSpokesperson said truth in communique released yesterday about Shati camp massacre. It was not #Israel behind it.”

On Tuesday, the IDF released aerial photos showing how a rocket from Gaza targeting Israel hit the Shati camp, run by the UNRWA, and Al Shifa Hospital, which has become a de-facto Hamas headquarters, against international rules of war.

Barbati said he was unable to speak about the Al Shifa hit, but he was certain that it was a Hamas rocket that hit the Shati camp, and a witness saw militants rushing to clean the debris.

Blogger Elder of Ziyon, who praised Barbati for telling the truth in a war where many journalists have been intimidated by Hamas, noted that “When Hamas made the area off limits to reporters, it was cleaning the area from any debris that could show the truth.”

  1. Well, here again we see evidence that HAMAS’ is using their older and less reliable ordinance. None of HAMAS’ ordinance was designed to fight a conventional army. To the extent they are trying to use their rockets and mortars against the IDF, it only stands to figure that they are going to miss their targets and hit their own civilians.

    It’s not like Israel couldn’t have made a mistake, but let’s face it! Anytime Israel defends itself, it gets blamed for civilian casualties whether the Israelis caused them or not. The Israelis might as well defend themselves against these intolerable attacks and let the anti-Semites gripe. If Israel kills HAMAS civilians, then it falls on those civilians to stop HAMAS from waging war that causes them so much suffering.

    HAMAS can’t have it both ways. They can’t say they’re willing to die fighting the Zionists and then kvetch when they die fighting the Zionists. Someone needs to hold them accountable. Don’t look for the mainstream media to do that.

    1. Well said TINSC. The only thing Israel can do right now is to turn a deaf ear to all the international bleating, pursue these bastards to the very end and wipe them out.
