Hamas terrorists “shot at us from mosques, schools and of course from civilian houses,” reports Lt. Adam Landau.
“In the end, if they shoot at you from a mosque, as difficult as it is, you don’t have an option…. And it’s not easy to shoot at a mosque. It’s important for a lot of people. It’s like a synagogue, but you get in a situation where you have to return fire to the mosques because that is where the terrorists are firing from.
You see a family’s house, and you see the clothing hanging outside [and] girls’ dresses waving in the wind, and behind all of this is a terrorist holding an AK-47 shooting at you.
You see how Hamas exploits children… We started to look for a terrorist who we knew was in a specific house. Suddenly, a small boy appeared. The terrorist grabbed him and escaped with him. Just because a terrorist enter a civilian does not give him immunity. On the other hand, we have to think very carefully before we act because no one wants to injure innocent civilians, especially women and children. It makes it very difficult to complete your goal of eliminating a terrorists because he is hugging a small child…It is not our decision. The terrorists took the decision and put it in hour hands.
