A video released Monday by the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit depicts all too well how Gaza terror groups operate from within the Strip's civilian population.
The footage shows a Saturday night IAF strike on an arsenal located in a northern Gaza neighborhood, following the weekend's rocket fire on Israel's southern communities.
The footage shows the explosion caused by the direct hit of the weapons cache, as well as several secondary explosions. The warehouse continued burning for several hours.
The IDF stressed the target – which was hidden among residential building – sustained a direct hit. The location, the military added, proves once more that Hamas has no qualms in using civilians as human shields.
Following the strike, an official with Gaza's health services said that the home of a known militant was hit as well. The man was not home at the time. According to Palestinian sources, two people were lightly hurt.
