A news reporter from New Delhi Television claims to have captured on film a detailed example of how Hamas assembles and fires rockets from the Gaza strip to Israel.
The video, which you can watch above, shows a small blue tent that was built across the street from the reporter’s hotel. According to NDTV’s description, the following morning, a rocket was fired from that location with a loud explosion.
The tent reportedly went up in the crowded residential neighborhood on Monday morning at around 6:30 a.m. local time. According to NDTV’s reporter, three men took many trips to and from the tent, often carrying wires. The men then changed clothes and took the tent away with them.
On Tuesday morning, only minutes before the 72-hour cease-fire was set to begin, a barrage of rockets left Gaza for Israel. The film above captures one of these rocket launches.
Israel, under international scrutiny over the mounting civilian death toll in Gaza, points to Hamas’ human-shield tactics and its practice of launching rockets from residential areas. This video provides rare footage of that practice.
