TEL AVIV – Footage released by the IDF Wednesday shows a Hamas terrorist who was arrested when he breached the border into Israel explaining how the terror group cynically exploits the ongoing riots to prevent an uprising in the Gaza Strip, and women and children are instructed to advance to the front row of the bloody protests with the promise that the “army doesn’t kill women or children.”
“When there’s (electric) power, and the televisions are on, all you see is the March of Return, the march, the march,” the suspect added.
The suspect added that the terrorist group specifically encourages women and children to approach the border, telling them “the army won’t shoot girls” and “the army won’t shoot little kids.”
He claimed that the protests divert from the hopelessness of Gazans, who are living in deplorable living conditions with a few hours of electricity every day and, in many cases, unclean water, the result of a rift between the terror group and the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority.
“They are putting pressure on their people and ‘exporting’ that pressure toward Israel, the Palestinian Authority and the international community,” a senior official in Israel’s military liaison unit to the Palestinians told reporters on Sunday.
