Video: Indian TV Crew Catches Hamas Firing Rocket from Outside Their Hotel
An Indian television news crew from NDTV filmed a team of Hamas terrorists assembling and launching a rocket at Israel just moments before a 72-hour ceasefire took effect on Monday. It marked one of the few instances in which the foreign media have documented Hamas terrorism, since journalists in Gaza operate under Hamas restrictions and risk their access and their lives if they show what Hamas is actually doing.
The video, shot from the journalists' hotel, shows how Hamas deliberately sets and fires up its rockets "bang in the middle of what is a residential area" in order to maximize the chances of civilian casualties should Israel target the rocket launcher. The journalists recorded Hamas erecting a blue tent to hide the rocket assembly from detection above, then launched the rocket towards Israel to kill civilians, if possible, before the ceasefire.
