CBNNews.com - GAZA STRIP - A video released Friday by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed that the family in Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip was killed by explosives carried by a Palestinian terrorist.
An IDF air strike targeting a four-member terror cell detonated the explosives pack that killed the family of four.
"One gunman was targeted and hit from the air. As a result, a strong secondary explosion occurred. The second gunman was targeted and hit as well, causing an even bigger explosion. Both explosions were significantly stronger than those caused by the IDF attacks against them," an IDF spokesman reported.
In the video, four fully armed Palestinian terrorists are seen walking near the home where the family died.
IDF spokeswoman Major Avital Leibovitz said the gunmen chose the middle of a residential neighborhood to fight.
Palestinians claimed Israel knowingly targeted civilians and Israel was quick to accept the blame, handing a propaganda victory to Hamas.
