A young girl may be the latest variant in the Hamas terrorist suicide show. Israeli soldiers in the Egoz unit were allegedly faced with the new human shield tactic on Monday morning in Gaza.
In an unconfirmed report conveyed by a source connected with someone in the unit, a young girl approached the group of soldiers. As she drew closer, the troops suddenly realized she was wearing a pack of explosives with which to blow herself up among the soldiers.
They shot and killed her on the spot, according to the source, eliminating the threat.
Israeli intelligence has repeatedly warned that Hamas is using all types of threats against IDF soldiers and Israeli civilians at this point. Caution is advised in all areas, given the current situation, and it is important to follow the instructions of Home Front Command.
