Israeli Military Refutes Hamas Claim It Targeted Children’s Playground in Gaza
The Israeli military refuted on Sunday a Hamas claim that it had bombed a playground in the Gaza Strip the previous day.
In reality, a video published by the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) unit said, the target of the air strike in question was a high-rise building used by Hamas for terrorist training activities — including urban warfare drills and soldier kidnapping simulations.
“When Hamas terrorists conduct exercises next to a children’s park, this proves they do not care about them,” the video said.
Watch the COGAT video below:
On July 14, the IDF struck a high-rise in Gaza that was regularly used by Hamas terrorist operatives for militant training, as can be clearly seen in this video. Anyone who carries out terrorist training near a mosque and a playground does not value religion or children pic.twitter.com/OblZ1CHe9Z
