Hamas Places Missile Launch Pad Next to Mosque and Preschool, Shoots at Gazans Trying to Leave the Strip
In the past few days, IDF fighter jets struck 250 targets belonging to the Hamas terror organization in the Gaza Strip. Among the targets that were struck were terrorist infrastructure, operational headquarters, terror tunnel shafts, and rocket launch pads placed in civilian areas from which missiles were launched at Israel.
In addition, the Navy struck a Hamas surface-to-air missile launch pad near Khan Yunis. The launch pad was situated next to a mosque and a preschool.
Meanwhile, the IDF Spokesperson's Unit declared that Hamas is continuing to prevent residents of the Gaza Strip from moving to a safe area on Thursday, October 26.
In a recorded conversation distributed by the IDF spokesperson between an officer and a resident of the Gaza Strip, the resident argues that he cannot move due to Hamas's blockades.
“All the roads are blocked,” he says, “people are walking, and they are just sent back home. They are shooting at people who want to leave.” (INN / VFI News)
“God, we ask that You ensure the safety of all innocent Gazan civilians who are currently in grave danger. We pray that they are either able to reach a secure haven or that they are allowed to remain in Gaza without additional risks. We pray for the quick elimination of the Hamas terrorist organization so that all citizens will be safe in Israel again and we ask that You free Gaza from Hamas.”
