Don’t be Hamas’ puppets, IDF tells Gazans

The IDF has alot of experience in doing this – other instances I am thinking of are when forewarning of attacks (with phone calls and “roof knocking” being the follow up warning methods).

Wonder if anyone collects all these different leaflets? Bit like collecting stamps…

Very few militaries in the world go to this length in trying to prevent casualties amongst the enemy.

Don’t be Hamas’ puppets, IDF tells Gazans

Ahead of the expected riots amid US Embassy opening in Jerusalem and Nakba Day events, Air Force drops leaflets in Gaza warning strip’s residents to keep away from border fence; ‘Hamas is using you to conceal its failures and is endangering you and your family members,’ one of leaflets reads.
Israel Air Force planes dropped leaflets in the Gaza Strip on Monday morning ahead of the expected riots amid US Embassy opening in Jerusalem and the Nakba Day events, warning residents to keep away from the border fence, to refrain from vandalizing it or from carrying out terror attacks and not to serve as Hamas’ tool.

The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement that the army was prepared for any scenario: “The IDF won’t allow any damage to the security infrastructure and the fence defending Israel’s citizens and will act against anyone operating against Israel’s security.”

One of leaflets read, “To the protestors, you are taking part in violent protests that are putting your life in danger. Hamas is using you to conceal its failures and is endangering you and your family members. The IDF is prepared for any scenario and will act against any attempt to target the security fence or to threaten the forces or Israel’s citizens. Hamas is using you. Don’t be its puppets. Stay away from the fence and beware terror operators and violent rioters! Take care of yourselves and work to build your future!” [fat chance of that – Ed.] 

Another leaflet stated, “Hamas said it was going to improve the infrastructure in the Gaza Strip. Has that been done? Hamas said it was going to built new medical and educational centers. Has that been done? Hamas said it would take care of civil affairs. Has that been done? Hamas said that participating in protests would improve your lives. Do you think that will happen?” [this sounds a better approach towards changing the minds of Gazans – Ed.] 

The leaflets were signed by the IDF Headquarters. 

The army is preparing for the arrival of dozens of Palestinians, including children, at points of friction along the Gaza border Monday. They are expected to try torch heavy equipment, target security infrastructures on the fence and kidnap IDF soldiers during the riots.

According to estimates, thousands of them will try to break through the security fence, which has not been crossed so far despite many attempts since the start of the “March of Return” campaign about a month and a half ago.
