Reports reveal Hamas rocket launch sites in built-up areas of Gaza
A television crew from an Indian news network broadcast rare footage on Tuesday of Palestinians in Gaza preparing to launch rockets at Israel just as the cease-fire was about to go into effect.
Journalists from NDTV were able to peer out the window of a hotel patronized by foreign reporters and film a group of terrorists as they were assembling and preparing a rocket to be launched at Israel.
The footage appears to confirm Israel’s contention that Hamas operatives used civilian areas to stage rocket attacks against Israel, thus making the local population vulnerable to retaliation.
Another clip shows a report by France 24, whose reporter detailed how Palestinians launched rockets from built-up, urban areas.
