Hamas makes wild claims of success against Israel probably in an effort to entice Islamist groups and nations to continue to send weapons and money. Watch the video and check their claims for yourself.
One of the top comments on YouTube.com illustrates the compassion and frustration Israelis have for Palestinians. If Hamas would stop attacking Israel from Gaza, Israel would have no reason to strike back:
I guess you don’t know that that israeli is holding back..
if we WEREN’T holding back, believe me, and i can sign my life for it, you would be dead by now.
israel CAN delete ALL OF GAZA in COUPLE MINUTES.
but we don’t do that, why? becuase we CARE about civilians, unlike you the terrorist which the only target their looking for is harming people, no matter who they are.
we keep shipping you food, water, electricity, and many more things that keep you alive.
