Video footage recorded by the Israel Air Force of an air strike it carried out on a weapons facility in the Gaza Strip over the weekend proves that the Hamas terrorist organization stored weapons in the heart of a residential neighborhood in northern Gaza.

In the footage, one can see the initial explosion caused by the IAF strike, followed by a series of secondary explosions that indicate the presence of a large amount of weaponry in the area.

The IDF (Zahal) emphasizes that Hamas chooses to operate in the midst of the civilian population, using it as a human shield.

Early on Sunday morning (December 11), the IAF targeted a terror site in northern Gaza. Directs hits were confirmed. Additional explosions were caused as a result of weapons and rockets stored near the attacked site.

The site was targeted in response to rocket fire from the Gaza into Israel. Over the weekend, around 20 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel.
