Even though Operation Protective Edge has technically ended, the IDF is continuing to make public the video evidence it collected regarding Hamas’s use of civilians as human shields.

On Thursday, the IDF released another video on the subject, showing how Hamas embeds its rocket launchers and military infrastructure in civilian areas and then fires on Israel. By doing so, the terror group homes to draw return fire and cause maximum damage to civilian areas.

Hamas has openly boasted about the "success" of the strategy of using civilians as human shields. The group has also used UN-run schools in Gaza as rocket storage sites.
