Hamas Embeds Itself Among Diplomats?

November 15, 2011 17:16 by

Turns out the French consul in Gaza, his wife and 13-year-old daughter were hit by shrapnel during Sunday’s IAF air strike on a Hamas naval facility. Reuters says their residence was just 200 meters from the site.

It’s bad enough Hamas training facilities, rocket factories, arms depots and Qassam launching sites are in civilian areas.

I wouldn’t compare any Gaza neighborhood with Washington’s Embassy Row. But Hamas is surely aware of the location of every diplomatic mission in the Strip.

Are they embedding themselves among diplomats too?
