Israel Blames Hamas for Gaza Children’s Deaths (Sky News-UK)
(dailyalert.org, July 29, 2014)
Israel has accused Hamas of misfiring two rockets – one of which struck the outpatient clinic at Shifa Hospital in Gaza City and the other the Shati refugee camp, killing nine children.
The IDF spokesman said: “Both of those locations were struck by terrorist rockets that were launched towards Israel and fell short.”
“Since the beginning of the operation the IDF has documented approximately 200 rockets and mortars that landed short within Gaza.”
“The Israel Defense Forces did not carry out any strikes in that area. Shifa Hospital was not a target, nor was the Shati Beach camp.”

The Israeli military said its radars and sensors had detected the paths of four terrorist rockets fired at that time and distributed an aerial photograph tracing their routes.
