Hamas Leader Admits to Using Women and Children as Cover
For the past year, Hamas has led the so-called March of Return protests along the border of Gaza and Israel. These protests have been covered by the international press, and, more often than not, have been referred to as peaceful. But this is far from the truth.
Within the crowds gathered at the security fence have been countless Hamas operatives who have made attempt after attempt to cross the border with the goal of causing physical harm to Israeli security personnel and civilians.
Hamas has used their grip on the population of Gaza to encourage vulnerable populations – such as women, children, and those with disabilities – join the protests. Sadly this has resulted in unfortunate and accidental deaths and injuries. However, this has been Hamas’ plan all along.
