(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – New shocking evidence has emerged that the Islamist terrorist group Hamas has weaponized everything and everyone – including children – against US ally Israel as the Israeli military has found a nursery school in the Gaza Strip used as a large weapons storage depot.
The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) recently uncovered an array of Hamas weaponry, including rocket-propelled grenades, mortar shells, and other armaments, concealed within a kindergarten and an elementary school in northern Gaza, as reported by a military spokesperson.
During a raid executed by the IDF’s Bislamach and Golani Brigades last Friday, this significant find was made, heightening the ongoing debate over Israel’s military actions in Gaza, National Review reports.
On October 7, Hamas massacred over 1,400 people in Israel in a surprise attack from the tiny but overpopulated enclave of the Gaza Strip, leading the Israelis to stage a massive counter-terrorist operation, including by going into Gaza.
Palestinian media and activists have accused Israel of unjustly targeting civilian infrastructure in the region, the report notes.
Despite Hamas’s refutations of utilizing civilian structures for military purposes, Israeli soldiers have repeatedly discovered numerous weapon caches in schools and hospitals.
Adding to this, the Israeli military last week disclosed the discovery of weapons in a kindergarten in the Beit Hanoun area of Gaza.
In a more recent development, IDF forces unearthed a Hamas command center situated in the basement of Al-Shifa hospital.
This site was found to house an assortment of grenades, suicide vests, and explosives.
Corroborating these findings, John Kirby, the spokesman of the US National Security Council, affirmed last week that US intelligence independently confirmed Hamas’s use of the hospital as both a defensive shield and an operational base.
In proximity to the hospital complex, the Israeli Defense Force located the remains of Yehudit Weiss, a hostage taken during Hamas’s October 7 offensive.
Additionally, near the same location, the body of 19-year-old hostage Noa Marciano was found.
“We also found signs that indicate that Hamas held hostages here. This is currently under our investigation. But we also have intelligence that verifies it,” Israeli defense spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari stated on Monday.
Contradicting these military findings, doctors in Gaza have denied allegations of Hamas using hospitals as military bases.
Despite this, the Israeli military maintains that Hamas’s extensive tunnel network, estimated to be around 300 miles long, connects schools and hospitals throughout Gaza.
