IDF censors video showing 'Palestinian' use of human shield
The IDF has censored a video taken in the last two weeks which allegedly shows 'Palestinian' terrorists using a woman as a human shield
The IDF imposed an embargo on a video allegedly documenting a Palestinian terrorist using a Palestinian woman as a human shield, Ynet discovered Sunday.
Footage taken by IDF cameras in the area clearly shows the terrorist holding the woman hostage, carying her as a barrier between himself and IDF forces.
The video documents an incident that took place two weeks ago, near the Gaza border: Seven Palestinians planting explosive devices north of Beit Lahia were intercepted by IDF soldiers. The soldiers opened fire, injuring some of the men.
The footage shows the terrorists running toward a group of farmers. Then, one of them grabbed a woman and carried her until taking cover behind a building.
Golani Brigade soldiers, who are currently deployed in the sector, and have had the opportunity to see the footage, said it was clear that the woman was forced to run with her assailant until he found cover.
The IDF spokesman's unit said in response that, "The IDF uses the various means in its disposal to document its operational activities for purpose of debriefing, public diplomacy and possible criminal action.
"Nevertheless, for security reasons not all documented events are released for publication."
Why is the IDF afraid of exposing the practices of 'Palestinian' terrorists? And why are we risking soldiers' lives to take this kind of video if we are not going to use it?
