The Israeli military strongly denies claims by the Hamas terror group, reported by international media outlets, that Israel struck convoys of Palestinians evacuating from the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

“This is a false report,” the IDF’s top spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari says in a press conference.

“The one making cynical use of their own citizens and taking them as human shields is Hamas,” Hagari says.

Hagari says Hamas is spreading “manipulative fake information into the world’s ears.”
