1/7 #Report
According to Palestinian reports, at approximately 18:00 hours, an #IDF airstrike struck downtown Gaza City. Two teens were killed as a result of the strike. Reports claimed an empty structure, a children’s park and a mosque were damaged. #Gaza #Israel #Hamas #IDF
2/7
The children’s park in reality is #Qassam Brigade’s “Battalions Square” and the teens who died were inside the structure circled in red. Beside it is the mosque circled in blue which was damaged by the strike.
3/7
Why did the #IDF target this site with air strikes? How does the #IDF know this site is used by #Qassam Brigades? Can we just take their word for it? Here is video of the actual strike.
4/7
In the Spring, #Qassam conducted military maneuvers in diff sectors of #Gaza. On the coast, in the fields and in downtown #Gaza City. Anything look familiar? The same structure in red and the minaret of the mosque in blue. The entrance to the bunker is shown in the last pic.
5/7
The #IDF doesn’t need a UAV roaming the skies of #Gaza City to know this “children’s park” with a mosque adjacent to it, is a site used by the military wing of #Hamas. If the pictures aren’t enough, #Qassam Brigades was kind enough to provide us and #IDF intelligence a video.
6/7
Reports from Palestinian media were not accurate. The addition of toys at the destroyed structure added to the claim this was a park w/ an empty structure. #IDF Arabic spokesperson Avichay Adraee lambasted #Qassam for building a terror site next to a mosque - he was correct.
7/7
The #IDF identified a #Qassam site & acted. It didn’t take a room of analysts to figure out the site was in fact used for #Qassam training & contained a bunker. Worst of all for #Hamas, they gave the #IDF the intel to ID & target the site. Hope all of you enjoyed my report.

This young man is Muhammad Sharif Badwan. He was killed East of #Gaza City at the Karni crossing after being shot in the chest by #IDF gunfire on Friday afternoon. #Israel
2/5
Many news sites refer to Badwan as either a protestor or a demonstrator who was shot and killed by the #IDF. The photo on the left, from the DailyMail, states Badwan is a protestor. The photo on the right from CGTN states Badwan is a protestor as well.
3/5
The problem is Badwan wasn’t there to protest in the way most people think. This video was taken Friday afternoon at the Karni crossing where Palestinians were clashing w/ #IDF soldiers. At the end, you can see Badwan being evacuated after getting shot by the #IDF.

Video of IED detonation at #Gaza fence after it was placed by Islamic Jihad members awaiting IDF troops to come near it. #Israel
Wire cutters were left there to attract IDF soldiers to come near the IED so it would be detonated near them. #Gaza #Israel
A few more photos of the two dead. Seems the second PIJ member is too disfigured to be photographed.
