NEWS: VIDEOS SHOW HAMAS USING CIVILIANS AS HUMAN SHIELDS, STEALING HUMANITARIAN AID
WASHINGTON, D.C. – New video footage shows Hamas terrorists in Khan Younis beating civilians to block them from fleeing and “preventing civilians from evacuating westward to the humanitarian zone,” according to Israeli media. Hamas’s use of human shields is well-documented. The Israeli media report also explains that in the footage, “Hamas gunmen are seen blocking access to humanitarian aid near the Amal Hospital, assaulting civilians waiting for assistance.”
In a separate new video, a civilian in Gaza complained that Hamas is stealing humanitarian aid from starving civilians. The man said Hamas steals aid “for themselves and their children” and left “nothing” for the people in the village of al-Mawasi in southern Gaza. This new evidence emerged after reports indicate that Hamas is stealing medical supplies to make bombs.
- Meanwhile, the IDF released on Saturday a video showcasing Hamas’s treatment of Gazans in the southern city of Khan Younis, depicting Hamas officers beating civilians waiting for aid and blocking the passage of those attempting to flee fighting zones to safety. In the footage, Hamas gunmen are seen blocking access to humanitarian aid near the Amal Hospital, assaulting civilians waiting for assistance and firing into the air to disperse them.
- Another piece of footage shows armed operatives preventing civilians from evacuating westward to the humanitarian zone. “This is yet another example among many of the corruption and brutality that characterizes the lives of the population under Hamas control,” said the IDF’s Arabic spokesperson’s announcement.
