With Iron Dome safely taking care of a good number of Hamas rockets lobbed at Israel, the IDF has also dispatched its forces to deflect propaganda from the terror group being aimed at the Jewish State.
The Israel Defense Forces on Saturday released its second video aiming to disprove Hamas claims of damage wreaked upon Israel, and Israeli damage wreaked upon civilians, after releasing a debut installment on Friday.
Among the Gazan group’s more creative claims have been that it hit an Israeli warship, killing a soldier, rained missiles on Tel Aviv’s beach near the US Embassy, the stock exchange in Ramat Gan, and even north of the city, and that the Israeli army shot live rounds at protesters near Ofer Prison in the West Bank
The IDF says all those stories are bogus.
The army claims Hamas is involved in a propaganda campaign aimed at bolstering the spirits of Gazans, who have been under IDF bombardment since the outset of Operation Pillar of Defense, and at making Israel look as bad as possible.
On Saturday, the interior minister of the Palestinian enclave called on Gazans to refrain from spreading rumors and only trust information disseminated by Hamas sources.
