Hamas Tried to Stop Humanitarian Aid

In the summer of 2014, the Jewish state was forced into a war - known as Operation Protective Edge - with Hamas when the terror group began launching rockets into Israel, after having kidnapped and murdered three Israeli teenagers. Now, Ynet News' Roi Kais reports that Hamas was also attempting to halt the distribution of humanitarian aid during the conflict by firing rockets from a hospital:

The secretary-general of the Red Crescent Society of the United Arab Emirates accused Hamas on Monday of attempting to prevent the distribution of humanitarian aid in the Gaza Strip.

According to Secretary-General Mohamed Ateeq Al-Falahi, the Red Crescent's staff was stationed at a UAE field hospital in the strip during the 2014 Operation Protective Edge when Hamas fighters began provoking Israeli forces by firing rockets from that hospital.

This led Israel to attack the hospital as the launch point for the rockets, thus sabotaging the distribution of the humanitarian aid.

"This shows (Hamas's) wicked intentions and how they scarified us," said Al-Falahi. "They always claim the enemy targets humanitarian envoys, but the betrayal came from them..."
