By Yoni Weiss

The IDF Spokesperson revealed Thursday the location of rocket launches being within a humanitarian zone in Gaza, misfiring and landing back in the Strip.

“At 12:52 [Wednesday], Hamas launched a rocket from inside a humanitarian zone. The rocket misfired, putting many Gazan civilians at risk,” the IDF said in a statement.

“At 14:12 [Wednesday], Hamas terrorists launched a rocket from a humanitarian zone toward Israel,” the statement added.

“[Wednesday], at 15:59, Hamas terrorists launched 12 rockets toward Israeli civilians in the city of Be’er Sheva in southern Israel. The rockets were launched from near tents of evacuated Gazan civilians in Rafah in southern Gaza and from next to United Nations facilities,” the IDF revealed.

“The Hamas terrorist organization abuses the people of Gaza, utilizing them for its acts of terror. Hamas cynically embeds itself in civilian infrastructure, schools, residential areas, near United Nations facilities and even in humanitarian zones – using the civilians as a human shield,” the statement concluded.
