More and more courageous media professionals are coming forward with information about Hamas using civilians as human shields, by launching rockets from within densely populated civilian areas and within very close proximity to UN and UNRWA facilities, knowing that retaliation will cause civilian casualties.
This time it’s Gallagher Fenwick for France 24 tV:
Earlier this week Israel and IDF were blamed (again and as usual) for the death of some 30 children in a missile “attack” on the Shifa hospital and the nearby Al-Shati neighborhood. The Media took to Hamas’ side immediately. 2 days ago, an Italian Reporter, now free and safe from Hamas’ grip decided to tell the truth:
This one reads: “I confirm now that I am out of Gaza, the massacre of children yesterday was not Israel’s blame. What IDF says is true. It was a Hamas missile”.
This one reads: “Colleagues in Shati say and show: after the death of children yeaterday in Gaza, Hamas or another faction operatives arrived to clear up the debris of the rogue missile”.
And if you don’t believe us this tweet in English says it all…
So, what does it say about all the media coverage coming out of Gaza, when you see live proof that journalists are threatened (why else would he say “free from Hamas retaliation“) and bullied? How can you still trust what your mainstream media is showing you?
Earlier this week UNRWA issues a statement regarding a second case in which a UN school in Gaza is exploited by terrorists to hide rockets. Although the school was vacant, it was located between two other schools which currently house 3,000 Palestinians.
The UNRWA statement reads:
Today, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip. As soon as the rockets were discovered, UNRWA staff were withdrawn from the premises, and so we are unable to confirm the precise number of rockets. The school is situated between two other UNRWA schools that currently each accommodate 1,500 internally displaced persons.
UNRWA strongly and unequivocally condemns the group or groups responsible for this flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law…”

The previous case in which UNRWA discovered missiles hidden in a school happened just 5 days before this one. UNRWA returned the rockets to the Hamas.
What do we learn from these cases?
1. Two cases of proof that Hamas uses civilian facilities and civilians as human shields.
2. Two cases, just 5 days apart, where a global relief organizations finds rockets in civilian buildings.
3. Said global relief organization returns the rockets to the Hamas – for what? to be launched at Israeli civilians (with UN stamp of approval!)
Putting civilians at risk, knowingly and on purpose, is a war crime. It is time to put an end to this and bring Hamas leaders to war crimes.
