IDF: Hamas sends teens as 'human shields'

The IDF Spokesperson's Unit said Saturday that 15-year-old Mohammed Ayoub's death at Gaza border skirmishes will be investigated.

 

"Every incident in which a person is allegedly shot by IDF gunfire is thoroughly investigated by the relevant command hierarchy and is reviewed by the General Staff's investigative panel," the spokesperson's unit said in a statement.

 

"Hamas endangers citizens deliberately by staging them on the frontlines of violence for the fourth consecutive week. Young children and women are sent to the fence as human shields," the IDF added.
