Investigation: IDF didn't fire on house where doctor's three daughters died

I'm sure you all remember the story of Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish, the 'Palestinian' doctor who lives in Gaza and works in Tel HaShomer. You will recall that three of the doctor's daughters died in their home, allegedly as a result of the house being hit by an IDF shell. You will also recall that I reported that Israel Television's Channel 1 reported that the doctor's daughter and niece who were brought to the hospital had shrapnel in their heads that came from a Grad-type Katyusha rocket, which is a weapon used by Hamas and not by the IDF.

On Saturday night, Israel's Channel 2 presented with the IDF Golani Brigade battalion commander whose unit fired on the house. While the conclusions are still preliminary and he's careful to present them as such, they also speak for themselves.

Let's go to the videotape. You will need to hit the close caption (CC) button unless you speak Hebrew. (Hat Tip: Jameel).

In other words, there was another type of gunpowder in the doctor's house and somewhere in that house - possibly in another part of the building where the doctor did not live, someone was storing weapons. That's right in line with Hamas using civilians as human shields, isn't it?

[Deleted]....let's see how many of the MSM outlets even mention it.

It is tragic re his daughters, but he must have known his home was a bomb repository.

I wonder where he will live now...and work.

/Hamass use human shields? Never!

And they're never guilty. Every one knows those evil, filthy and deranged Zionists kill women and babies!

I am not sure the doctor necessarily knew that weapons were stored in the building.

In his case I am pretty sure that he is not affiliated with Hamas. In 2005 he protested in clear words against the attempted suicide attack on Soroka by Wafa Samir Ibrahim al-Biss.

It's entirely possible that he didn't know or couldn't do anything about it. I don't think he lived in a private house - more likely an apartment building. Only Hamas 'leaders' get to live in private homes in Hamastan.
