Watch the amazing video:
Here’s a partial transcript of reporter Sreenivasan Jain’s incredible video report:
It’s fair to guess that this is a potential Hamas rocket launching site that’s been set up. There’s always been this question of how Hamas manages to fire its rockets without being detected by the Israelis, this perhaps is one of the ways of assembling it under a tent. It also establishes something which Hamas has always been accused of, that they actually use densely populated, civilian areas to fire their rockets. And if the camera zooms out a little more, you’ll see that this is an area is very heavily built up, a lot of residential and hotel buildings all around. And so if Hamas does fire a rocket from here, it will have immediate consequences for everyone around here. And I also must report at this point that the first night that we came here we did see – or rather hear – a rocket go off exactly at that plot of land. And the hotel and the hotels opposite us were evacuated because the Israelis sent a warning that there might be a strike on them. That didn’t happen. But if Hamas uses this site once again to launch a rocket, we’re not sure what’s going to happen.Not only was simply the act of recording the movements of a terrorist group risky, but the news team stayed in the area and even attempted to go directly to where the rocket was launched with the possibility of an Israeli counterstrike hanging over their heads – as Jain emphasized, there could be “immediate consequences for everyone around here.”
Thankfully, the team safely left Gaza before their report was aired. I can’t imagine they’d be safe going back into Gaza ever again after exposing Hamas.
