Far from Hamas Intimidation- Testimonies from Gaza
ince the beginning of the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas (Aug 5th) reports have begun to surface about the use made by Hamas terrorists in civilian areas to launch its rockets at Israel. These reporters, some threatened by Hamas not to broadcast such reports, exposed how Hamas launches rockets from the vicinity of the hotel where much of the foreign press was staying, reports even clearly indicate Hamas placing its launching pads near a UN facility, as Israel claimed, and as was denied by some.
WATCH “REAL VOICES FROM GAZA”:
A correspondent from France 24 took advantage of the ceasefire to look around and discovered a rocket launching pad in the midst of civilian buildings. He reported: “This right here (points) is a launching pad for rockets…The Israeli army has repeatedly accused Palestinian militants of shooting from within densely populated civilian areas, and that is precisely the type of set-up we have right here. Rockets set up right next to buildings, with a lot of residents in them…”. “This rocket-launching site is right next to a UN facility.”

In another footage, a correspondent of the Indian TV channel NDTV documents the preparation and the firing of rockets by terrorists from within a populated area in Gaza. According to NDTV: "This report is being aired on NDTV and published on ndtv.com after our team left the Gaza strip - Hamas has not taken very kindly to any reporting of its rockets being fired. But just as we reported the devastating consequences of Israel's offensive on Gaza's civilians, it is equally important to report on how Hamas places those very civilians at risk by firing rockets deep from the heart of civilian zones."
