A television crew from the Indian news network NDTV released a stunning video on Tuesday that appears to show Hamas launching rockets from a densely populated, urban area in Gaza. This footage comes on the heels of the Israel Defense Forces claim they obtained a Hamas manual detailing the “benefits of human shields” in warfare.
“The video from the Indian TV network that is showing Hamas making and planting rockets in a residential area – it is shocking to me,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “They're catching Hamas red-handed.”
As TheBlaze reported, NDTV reporter Sreenivasan Jain explains in the video what he and his crew witnessed over the course of a couple of days. On Monday morning, he watched as a blue tent was erected directly adjacent to his hotel – in a dense urban area. Jain reports he saw three men currying supplies into the tent, and he described the ramifications of a rocket being fired from the site.
“[The tent's use as a rocket building site] establishes something which Hamas has always been accused of, that they actually use densely populated civilian areas to fire their rockets,” he says. “You’ll see that this is an area [that is] very heavily built up, a lot of residential and hotel buildings all around. If Hamas does fire a rocket from here, it will have immediate consequences for everyone around here.”
The Hamas team proceeded to disassemble the tent and cover the area in question with shrubs. Come Tuesday, Jain reports a rocket was fired from the site.

“[This] has been the lead story on TheBlaze for over 24 hours,” Glenn said of the video. “What's amazing to me is CNN just picked it up, and nobody else has picked it up yet. Hello? I wonder why.”
