Video Of Hamas Rocket Launch From Civilian Area

Here's the report from NDTV on the incident.

In the minutes before the ceasefire kicked in at Gaza this morning, Hamas fired a flurry of rockets towards Israel - 30 according to some counts.

Israel has argued that that these rockets are fired from civilian areas, and this is why its retaliatory strikes can result in civilian casualties.

But this morning, NDTV witnessed one such rocket silo being created under a tent right next to the hotel where our team was staying. Minutes later, we saw the rocket being fired, just before the 72-hour ceasefire came into effect.

It began with a mysterious tent with a blue canopy that bobbed up yesterday (August 4) at 6:30 am in an open patch of land next to our window. We saw three men making a multitude of journeys in and out of the tent, sometimes with wires.

An hour later, they emerged, dismantled the tent, changed their clothes and walked away.

The next morning - today - we woke to news of the 72-hour ceasefire but just before it was to take effect, the rocket next to our hotel was fired. There was a loud explosion and a whooshing sound. The cloud of smoke that rose was captured by our cameraperson.

The report was not published, of course, until after the journalists had left Gaza. Why not? For fear of Hamas retaliation against them -- something that could go so far as including death, based upon past practices of Hamas. Contrast that with Israel allowing openly hostile journalists to report freely from their territory and ask yourself -- who do you trust?

Comments on Video Of Hamas Rocket Launch From Civilian Area

I salute the Indian reporters and Indian news agency that published this account detailing how Hamas uses civilians as shields. However, why do they feel a need to blur the faces of the terrorists?

NDTV was not the only news team to record this launch site. France24 also recorded it and noted that the launch site was not only next to several hotels housing foreign reporters -- it was also about a block from a building flying a UN flag.

If you would like to see these and a few related videos, refer to (yeah, I know that this is shameless promotion; however, I will not follow in Obama's example and challenge you to sue me).

Thanks for your posting. Another issue is that to be a photographer will involve not only difficulty in catching award-winning photographs and also hardships in establishing the best digicam suited to your needs and most especially struggles in maintaining the grade of your camera. This can be very correct and noticeable for those professional photographers that are in capturing the actual nature's interesting scenes -- the mountains, the particular forests, the wild and the seas. Going to these amazing places unquestionably requires a digital camera that can surpass the wild's tough conditions.

» Top 10 RB tandems in college football »There's hope in Detroit based on what Jeremiah said about Abdullah and Riddick: I know they lack size, but they're both guys who can really be dynamic in the passing game as well as hit home runs, adding that Detroit will be able to scare safeties out of position with how they spread the field with both backs and tight end Eric Ebron.
