Video: Hamas spokesman admits using human shields, says they are effective against IDF

hamas human shieldsA video posted in early July by MEMRI shows Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri admitting to the use of human shields during an interview on Al-Aqsa TV.

While speaking about the use of civilians as shields, he said that people were on the roof of a particular house “in order to prevent the Zionist occupation’s warplanes from targetting it,” according to the translation provided by MEMRI.

“This attests to the character of our noble Jihad-fighting people, who defend their rights with their bare chests and their blood,” he added when asked to comment on the tactic of using human shields.

He also claimed the tactic has “proven effective” against Israelis.

Naturally, because unlike Hamas, Israel does not purposefully target and kill civilians.

The entire video needs to be seen.  Of course, you’ll never see this on the so-called “mainstream media.”

Exit question: How is Israel — or anyone else — expected to negotiate with people like this?
