Video news proves Hamas launched missiles from civilian areas in Gaza

FRANCE 24 correspondent Gallagher Fenwick provided dramatic footage of not only a site, near a UN facility in Gaza, used by Hamas terrorists to launch missiles but also of an actual launching of missiles while covering the action in the conflictive zone. In the video, Fenwick said that the site in Gaza City is approximately 350 feet from a hotel where many of the assembled members of the international media were housed, and just 300 feet from a building used by the United Nations.

"This type of setup is at the heart of the debate," said Fenwick in the video. "The Israeli army has repeatedly accused the Palestinian militants of shooting from within densely populated civilian areas and that is precisely the type of setup we have here.”

This was the same site, used by Hamas as a launching pad for missiles, where the FRANCE 24 team had a close call last week. While Fenwick was broadcasting, a rocket was fired overhead. Fenwick and his crew had to take cover.
