Yesterday the IDF released a brief animated video as part of the recap of the conclusions of investigations into the Gaza operation earlier this year, illustrating the terrorist tactics that Hamas employed. Run time is slightly more than five minutes.
The video provides background on the IDF’s Operation Cast Lead, depicting the terrorist tactics that Hamas employed in the war. It shows how Hamas smuggles in weaponry in order to arm itself and how it employs the civilian population and infastructure in order to carry out terrorist attacks against Israel. Hamas’ use of human shields during operation Operation Cast Lead of course caused civilian casualties.
Iran has reportedly resupplied Hamas since the termination of Operation Cast Lead and the sickening tactics depicted in the video remain Hamas’s modus operandi. The IDF video seeks to explain the extraordinary challenge Israel faces in confronting an utterly monstrous enemy that exploits the humanity of its enemy.
