IDF source: Palestinian children were not killed by soldiers


Apr. 28, 2008

The Palestinian mother and her four children who were killed Monday during IDF ops in Beit Hanun were not hit by a tank shell but rather were killed when ammunition carried by gunmen exploded, Army Radio quoted an IDF source as saying.

According to the unofficial source, the forces operating in the Gaza Strip town identified two gunmen who were carrying large bags. When the soldiers opened fire on them the bags exploded, causing the deaths of the family members.

Comment: I have confirmed this through colleagues high in the government-don. I mention this as Hamas is using this all over Israeli nightly news-amazing that our own media will present such a story given we have confirmation of the story. And here is the rest of it.
