At 14:12 on Wednesday, Hamas terrorists launched a rocket from a humanitarian zone toward Israel.
"The Hamas terrorist organization abuses the people of Gaza, utilizing them for its acts of terror," the IDF stressed.
"Hamas cynically embeds itself in civilian infrastructure, schools, residential areas, near United Nations facilities and even in humanitarian zones - using the civilians as a human shield."
