- Accounts of Hamas War Crimes Submitted to ICC – Hanan Greenwood
33 testimonies of IDF combat soldiers were submitted to the International Criminal Court in The Hague on Thursday as proof that Hamas carries out war crimes. The testimonies describe how Palestinian children are used as human shields and ambulances are used to transport weapons.
One testimony described an incident at the Gaza border riots last summer. “A terrorist threw a grenade at our jeep. As soon as he realized he had been seen, he grabbed a child and held on to him tightly, so we wouldn’t fire at him.” (Israel Hayom)
