The barbarians are at the gate and Israel must do something. Hamas targeted civilians, making their incursion into Israel a war crime.
But, I do not believe anyone will have to face the World Court because they killed Jews. Israeli soldiers faced some brutal scenes in the aftermath of the Hamas invasions. But, nothing could have prepared them for what might well be the most heinous assault they had hoped they would never see.
According to local Israeli outlet i24News, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers Kfar Aza, one of the communities Hamas terrorists invaded. The soldiers found the bodies of forty babies, some of which had ben decapitated.
IDF Maj. Gen. Itai Veruv said, describing the scene, i24News reported:
“It’s not a war, it’s not a battlefield. You see the babies, the mother, the father, in their bedrooms, in their protection rooms, and how the terrorists killed them.”
“Many soldiers were called up for reserve service and could be seen actively consoling each other after what they had to witness. They arrived expecting the worst, but the scenes are beyond anything that one could imagine. Some soldiers say they found babies with their heads cut off, entire families gunned down in their beds. About 40 babies and young children have been taken out on gurneys.”
From Fox News:
On Saturday morning, Hamas-led forces poured over the Israel-Gaza border while residents were sleeping, dragging people into the streets, taking some hostage while beheading and killing others. More than 700 Israelis, including men, women, children and the elderly, were indiscriminately killed in one day — the largest terror attack in a single day in Israel’s history.
The Israeli army allowed members of the media into Kibbutz Kfar Aza, which is located less than a quarter of a mile from the Gaza border.
In the city, residents were murdered and their bodies left lying in the streets. Cars were completely burned and the devastation was extended to buildings, some of which were abandoned and destroyed.
According to i24News, the destructive visuals were met with what was described as “the smell of death.”
The once-vibrant community is now unrecognizable after Saturday’s brutal and swift attack.
The outlet described the level of barbarity they witnessed as what the Allied forces must have experienced walking into Nazi-controlled areas during World War II.
“Many soldiers were called up for reserve service and could be seen actively consoling each other after what they had to witness. They arrived expecting the worst, but the scenes are beyond anything that one could imagine. Some soldiers say they found babies with their heads cut off, entire families gunned down in their beds. About 40 babies and young children have been taken out on gurneys — so far,” i24News reported.
The outlet added:
“The atrocities that were committed with guns, grenades, knives, all targeting innocent civilians in their homes. We can see soccer nets on lawns, a sign of the bucolic life that once existed here. Doors are wide open, strollers left behind, sidewalks destroyed by artillery. There are charred houses as terrorists burned down houses to drive the civilians sheltering inside to come out.”
