A reporter for France 24, Gallagher Fenwick, was reporting from Gaza Friday and explaining how its residents' “food security” has been affected by the fighting there, when something unexpected happened.

"This was a rocket,”, a rattled Fenwick told his audience, “this was a rocket, rockets were just shot right next to where we are standing, so I'm not going to stand here very long because usually there's a strike just moments after this occurs.”

The occurrence proves Israel's contention that Hamas fires rockets from among civilians, using them as human shields and manipulating any civilian casualties that are thus incurred, in order to make Israel look bad.
