Lapid: Hamas is Responsible for Children's Deaths


Finance Minister Yair Lapid said on Wednesday that it was Hamas, whose terrorists regularly uses civilians as human shields, was responsible for the deaths of children in Gaza.

"Unlike previous times, the world understands that Hamas is to blame for these unfortunate and terrible deaths, and that is why we still have a wide international credit to continue to operate in Gaza and to expand the operation if we have to,” he told Channel 2 News, referring to the deaths of four children in an Israeli airstrike earlier on Wednesday.
