- Several IDF reservists flew into Geneva last week to share their stories on human rights violations by Hamas and other terror groups. Sgt. (res.) Avihai Shorshan said, “Two of my friends died in the [2014 Gaza] war. Both of them died because they tried to do their mission without harming civilians.”
- “In one of the missions in the outskirts of Shejaia…a 10-year-old boy in a suicide bomber’s belt was sent our way. In defiance of orders and the command to shoot to kill, the team member guarding the door at the time decided not to open fire, ducked behind some cover and instead instructed the boy to undress and remove the explosive belt.”
- “We detained the child and after an investigation in Israel he was released, healthy and well….The investigation revealed that his brother, a senior member of Hamas, bribed the kid with 10 shekels (about $2.50) to blow himself up on us.”
- Cpt. (res.) Ravid Elfassi, an IDF officer in the Golani Brigade’s reconnaissance unit, was given 90 seconds to present his testimony to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva last week.
- “It has been said that terrorism in the eyes of one person is a freedom fighter in the eyes of another, but how can you consider yourself a freedom fighter for stabbing a three-month-old baby, Hadas Fogel, in front of her parents? How can someone call himself a Jihadi, a “holy warrior,” for taking the life of a child? These are the fanatics who we as IDF soldiers are fighting against on a daily basis.”
- “In 2007, I was sent on a mission in Gaza to seek out a Hamas squad which was launching rockets at Israeli cities. With my own eyes, I witnessed as Hamas sent out six- and seven-year-old children to search for me and my men. When these children found us, Hamas opened heavy fire using AK-47s and RPGs, while the children were still between us and them,” Elfassi said.
