Y-Net: A clip released by Hamas Monday shows the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the terrorist group’s military wing, firing rockets toward Gaza vicinity communities – from a populated area.

In the clip fast-paced shooting can be seen, probably from a multiple rocket launcher. It is clear in the video that the launching spot is surrounded by civilian structures, which could further tarnish the group’s global image.

Terror groups in the Gaza Strip have been known to shoot out of populated areas so as to stop the IDF from retaliating in a manner that may target innocent citizens. But while they often release videos of the rocket fire, the groups seldom document shooting from populated areas. Whenever they do, they usually blur the surroundings so that Israel cannot use it against them.
