Gaza mother and children not killed by Israeli fire, video shows

The Palestinian mother and four children who died in the middle of clashes in the Gaza town of Beit Hanoun April 28 were killed in secondary blasts from explosives carried by four Palestinian gunmen near their home. A video clip released by the Israeli army spokesman Friday, May 2, taken by a drone overhead, shows that the Israeli air force only hit the gunmen. The explosives they were carrying were powerful enough to killed Miyasar Abu Meatak and four children and destroy their home. The probe conducted by Col. Shai Alkilai ruled out the Palestinian accusation that they died as a result of Israeli fire. The spokesman regretted the deaths of innocent people but laid the blame on Hamas which mounted attacks out of populated areas.
