Gaza Archbishop says Hamas shot rockets from church
Gaza's Archbishop says that his church, which provided shelter to some 2,000 Muslims during Operation Protective Edge, was used as a launching pad
for Hamas' rockets.
Alexios took CBN News to the roof terrace outside
his office to show how Islamists used the church compound to launch
rockets into Israel. He refused to discuss details on camera for
security reasons, but days after the war started, Israeli missiles
targeted an area close to the church sanctuary.
Little is left of one of two minarets that used to
stand tall here, not too far from the Mediterranean. It was a major
mosque in the area and was reportedly hit by seven Israeli missiles.
The Israeli government said places like mosques and
hospitals in densely populated areas are routinely used by Hamas to fire
off their rockets.
I'm surprised Hamas didn't 'use' the opportunity to turn their guns on Gaza's Christians.
