Hamas spokesman attacked outside Shifa Hospitalpreceded by a volley of rocket fire. Israel completed the withdrawal of its troops to staging areas just outside Gaza just before 8:00 am, where they can be sitting ducks for mortar attacks (that last clause was my gloss). Israel emphasized that the cease fire was completely unconditional and that it followed its completion of the destruction of the tunnels.
All of that allowed some Hamas officials to emerge from their caves and some stories about Hamas officials to come out from under cover. Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri went to Hamas headquarters at Gaza City's Shifa Hospital (a war crime putting its headquarters there - but hey, they're fighting Israel), where he was attacked by Gazan civilians who have no place to go.
The residents blamed Hamas for the death of family members and for destruction of their homes. Armed Hamas terrorists from the Izzedine al-Kassam Brigades extricated Abu Zuri and arrested the angry residents.
Arabic website vetogate.com said that reporters in Gaza are well aware of the incident but are afraid to report it, because Hamas's security agency could go after them if they do.
A week ago, Palestinian sources reported that over 30 Palestinians were executed by Hamas, most of them in the Shejaiya neighborhood. Hamas claimed that they were collaborators with Israel.
Channel 10 said that Hamas executed 20 residents of Shejaiya who had dared demonstrate against Hamas.
Rockets were fired at Israel from next to Shifa Hospital during the fighting in Gaza, and Hamas's leadership hid under it.I guess the Hamas leadership will be consulting with Hassan Nasrallah about how to live underground. Heh.
