Hamas video claims view of IDF chief

Video released by Hamas' military wing claims to show former chief of staff Benny Gantz during Operation Protective Edge but authenticy is in question.

A short video was released by Hamas' military wing Sunday night in which the organization claims to have filmed Israeli troops and even former IDF Chief Benny Gantz from across the Gaza border during Operation Protective Edge last summer.



The clip was edited by the propaganda wing of Hamas' military, in an attempt to display advanced intelligence capabilities against Israeli troops.

Hamas has released a series of videos and clips to mark one year since Operation Protective Edge, trying to present the organization's gains made during the war.


The film's authenticity is in doubt however, due to the soldier's long sleeves, as well as the color of the leaves, that seem to indicate that the video was made in the fall, not during the summer operation.

Additionally, IDF protocol orders that all visits near the Gaza border be conducted with full protection including helmets and flak jackets, neither of which is worn by Gantz in the clip.


The officer marked in the video is similar in appearance to the former chief of staff, but his identity is difficult to prove due to the distance of the camera from its subject.
