CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Palestinians arrested during Israel's three-week Operation Cast Lead in the Gaza Strip spoke about the abuse they and their neighbors have suffered under Hamas rule.
The Shin Bet (General Security Agency) released information from several of the more than 100 Palestinians detained during the IDF's (Israel Defense Forces) incursion in Gaza.
Shin Bet officials were told how Hamas confiscated daily deliveries of humanitarian aid and resold it Gaza residents, while Fatah-affiliated residents were often excluded completely.
Hamas militiamen launched rockets and mortars from inside schools so the IDF would retaliate, appearing to target schools.
Gazans who resisted the gunmen's takeover of their homes and properties were shot in the legs.
One man told how he and his brother were beaten with electrical cords. Hamas gunmen killed his brother, who worked as a security guard at the home of a Palestinian Authority official.
Another detainee said Hamas built a bunker under Gaza City's Shifa Hospital where senior Hamas members hid out during the three-week incursion.
