The Al-Qassam Brigades "military wing" of the Hamas terror organization has published a new video, showing then-IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz touring the Gaza border during Operation Protective Edge last summer – in a propaganda tool meant to indicate Hamas could have assassinated him.
Gantz is seen in the film through binoculars together with his bodyguards and additional forces, apparently near Kibbutz Ein Hashlosha.
Hamas said that during the tour Gantz was in its firing range – leading to the obvious question why Hamas would have chosen not to take the shot, a question casting doubt on the veracity of the terrorist group's claim.
The Al-Qassam Brigades claimed that the documentation proves its intelligence capabilities, and its "readiness for any possible aggression."
Hamas's clip, with the section including Gantz seen at roughly 1:40 in, can be viewed below.
Hamas likewise published a video on Sunday documenting the terrorists' infiltration into Kibbutz Ein Hashlosha on July 19 during Operation Protective Edge.
In the attack, terrorists entered the kibbutz via an attack tunnel and killed IDF reserve officer Col. Amotz Greenberg, 45, of Hod Hasharon, and Sgt. Adar Bersano, 20, of Nahariya by launching an explosive at the jeep they were in.
An attack tunnel leading to Kibbutz Ein Hashlosha was found as early as October 2013, and yet not decisive action was taken to find all tunnels and destroy them until Operation Protective Edge, when they were used to deadly effect.
It has been revealed that humanitarian materials being shipped into Gaza are being siphoned off by Hamas to rebuild its attack tunnels, as Hamas gearing up for the next war, which would mark its fourth terror war attempt to destroy Israel.
