Hamas top secret plans show they deliberately targeted children - The Telegraph - 14.10.23

Top-secret plans retrieved from the bodies of dead Hamas fighters show the terrorist organisation aimed to specifically target children and “kill as many” Israelis as possible.

The documents published by NBC News show that Hamas had mapped out the area of assault in southern Israel, planning to attack elementary schools and a youth centre in the kibbutz of Kfar Sa’ad – killing residents and taking hostages.

“Combat unit one” was directed to “contain the new Da’at school”, while “combat unit two” was ordered to “collect hostages,” “search the Bnei Akiva youth centre” and “search the old Da’at school,” one page labelled “top secret” said.

Another page, with neat multi-coloured tables and labels, instructed another unit to “kill as many as possible” and “capture hostage” on the east side of Kfar Sa’ad.

Kfar Sa’ad was one of several kibbutzim overrun by Hamas immediately after the incursion. The printed satellite maps showed Kfar Aza, Nahal Oz and Alumim were earmarked for targeted attacks.

The documents were retrieved by first responders who arrived at the scene last weekend.

The Israeli government has insisted that the Hamas incursion deliberately targeted civilians.

The discovery comes a day after a senior Hamas official called a rare press conference for international media in an apparent attempt to limit the damage of the international outrage.

Basim Naim, head of international relations for the terrorist group, insisted that their gunmen were “keen to avoid harming civilians” and only targeted military bases and compounds in response to Israel “suffocating the people of Gaza for more than 17 years”.

Other Hamas officials went as far as to claim the 260 partygoers who were massacred at an open-air rave festival last Saturday may have been mistaken for “resting” soldiers.

In another attempt at damage-control earlier this week, Hamas released videos that appear to show terrorists comforting Israeli children at the captured kibbutzim.

One clip showed a little boy sitting on the knee of one gunman in the garden of someone’s home. In another, the same boy is offered drink from a cup.

Dozens of Israeli children are known to have been killed and kidnapped in the incursion.

Hamas’s unprecedented cross-border raid and ensuing attacks on the south of Israel has killed at least 1,300 Israelis.

In Gaza, the death toll from Israeli’s airstrikes on Saturday climbed to 2,215 and more than 8,000 injured.
