Netanyahu: ‘Hamas Wants Palestinian Civilians Dead’ (National Review Online)

Hamas is purposely placing Palestinian citizens in Gaza in harm’s way to cause more civilian casualties at the hands of Israeli troops, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday on Special Report.

“This is the cruelest, most grotesque war that I’ve ever seen,” he said.

Hamas soldiers have positioned their weapons in civilian homes, shooting at Israeli soldiers from the locations and placing the civilians in the line of fire. Netanyahu said Israel dropped leaflets and texted Palestinian citizens telling them to vacate war zones, but some chose instead to listen to Hamas’s command to stay.

Hamas is “using their own people as propaganda fodder,” Netanyahu said.
