Video: Islamic Jihad uses civilians as human shields

The reports coming out of southern Israel say that Islamic Jihad terrorists fired anywhere from 60-150 rockets this evening.

Unsurprisingly, they did so while hiding behind civilian human shields.

In this video, watch where the rocket flashes originate. They're at the back and a bit toward the right of a heavily populated area.

Let's go to the videotape.

Arutz Sheva adds:
The footage, which was posted on a Hamas-linked Facebook page, shows the challenges often faced by the Israeli military in responding to such attacks whilst avoiding civilian casualties.
It illustrates what Israeli officials, including Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, have often referred to as a "double war-crime": the firing of rockets against Israeli civilians, whilst using the Palestinian Arab civilian population in Gaza as cover, and in the hope that any Israeli response will draw condemnation for striking a civilian area.
Asymmetric warfare at its best.

By the way, if the fight is only being picked by Islamic Jihad, why was this posted to a Hamas Facebook page?
