The IDF on Wednesday evening published a report revealing that Hamas has rebuilt part of its infrastructure since last year’s war in Gaza and has embedded military sites in densely populated civilian areas.

Drone footage shows that Hamas has built at least three new tunnels and a number of weapons manufacturing sites and storage depots under and next to hospitals, a UNRWA school, a medical clinic, a library, mosques, a university, a Pepsi factory and residential apartment buildings.

“Terror organizations in the Gaza Strip have been using civil, religious and humanitarian buildings as human shields for years,” the IDF stated.

“The IDF uncovered how Hamas endangers Palestinian civilians,” Defense Minister Benny Gantz said. “Hamas launches attacks from within population centers towards population centers. The world must be aware of this crime against humanity.”

  1. Israel should warn the people in those areas to evacuate and stay away as they reserve the right (as per Geneva convention) to bomb those places without notice should Gaza launch any attack on Israel.

  2. The party that employs human shields, in an attempt to shield military objectives from attack, thereby assumes responsibility for the injury of these innocent civilians.
    War is never pleasant, and these human shields are victims of the forces that cynically use them.
