THE FALSE NARRATIVE

“… killed … by gunfire….”

“Killed along with three friends in an air and naval strike….”

“Killed … while playing on the beach with another boy.”

THE FACTUAL NARRATIVE:

1- There was no naval strike. They were not killed by gunfire. The boys were killed by two missiles fired by a Hermes 450 UAV.

2- The Bakr cousins were not killed while playing on the beach with another boy. They were not playing and they were not “on the beach”.

The incident took place in an area that had long been known to the residents of the Gaza Strip as a compound belonging to Hamas’ Naval Police and Naval Force (al-Qassam Brigades naval commandos), and which was utilized exclusively by terror operatives. It was closed off by a fence and clearly separated from the beach serving the civilian population.

Aerial surveillance identified a number of figures entering the compound at a running pace. They were believed to be Hamas terror operatives. These figures entered a shed adjoining a container which had been attacked the previous day. At the time of the attack, it was not possible to have identified the figures, via aerial surveillance, as children.

When one of the figures entered the remains of the container, one missile was fired towards the container and the adjoining shed, hitting him. The rest of the figures began to run in the direction of the compound’s exit. Before they exited the compound, a second missile was fired which hit the figures after they had exited the compound.

Tragically, it became known that the victims of the attack were not Hamas operatives as believed but four children. What remains unclear, is the reason the four boys entered the Hamas military compound.
