One of Hamas’ main command bunkers is located beneath Shifa HOSPITAL in Gaza City.
Yes, a hospital. And it’s no SECRET that it’s there!
- On July 15, 2014, William Booth of the Washington Post wrote that the hospital “has become a de facto headquarters for Hamas leaders, who can be seen in the hallways and offices.”
- Back in 2006, PBS aired a documentary showing gunmen denying hospital staff access to protected locations within the building.
During the three weeks of Israel’s Operation Protective Edge, Hamas has been caught using not just hospitals, but also mosques and schools to hide militants and weapons, all of which are contrary to international rules of war created to protect civilians. When their actions result in casualties to their own people, they publish bloody photos and blame the Israelis.
- On July 28, 2014, Hamas attempted to fire a rocket with a 220 lbs warhead at central Israel from a playground outside the Shifa hospital. It exploded on the site, wounding and killing dozens. Palestinians blamed the explosion on an Israeli air strike.
So why are reporters presenting Israel as the aggressor and Hamas as the victim? Because, unlike Hamas, Israel has never kidnapped or murdered any journalists who made them look bad. Currently, Hamas is refusing to allow any journalists to leave Gaza and at least one who failed to submit Hamas propaganda to his editors has been subjected to Hamas interrogation.
Instead of believing pro-Hamas news reports, listen to what Hamas actually says and does.
