Hamas terrorists accidentally killed at least four and maybe five of their own members and an Italian photo journalist Wednesday when they tried dismantling what apparently was an IDF artillery shell that did not explode.
The Italian civilian was reportedly working for several news agencies, including Associated Press, according to the Greek news service ANSA.
Several others, including a Gaza journalist and medics, were wounded in the blast around 11 a.m. in Beit Lahiya, located in northern Gaza.
The incident occurred in a civilian neighborhood, one of Hamas’ favorite areas for launching rockets and using human shields to attack Israel.
As tragic as the death of the journalist is, the sappers’ bungling parallels the terrorist organization’s military, diplomatic blunders in the war, not to mention its horrendous war crimes that have exposed Hams for what it is.
It remains to be seen if Hamas blames Israel for the death of a civilian because it failed to explode a bomb aimed at terrorists.
