For a supposedly random targeting of innocent, peaceful Palestinian protesters, Israel sure managed to kill an awful lot of terrorists in the mix.
So many, in face, that one might almost think it was intentional.
According to the Times of Israel, Hamas, the terrorist organization largely in charge of the Palestinian Authority, admitted that five out of six Palestinians killed in Monday’s melee at the Gaza border were members of their terror group.
From the report:
A Hamas official says in an interview that 50 of the Gazans killed in Monday’s clashes with Israeli troops were members of the terror group.
Salah Bardawil says of the “62 people martyred, 50 were Hamas.” Gaza’s Hamas-run health ministry earlier reported 60 Gazans were killed in the clashes.
Israel had previously claimed that only 24 of those killed were Hamas terrorists, the report added. So apparently, the IDF did better than even they’d thought.
Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro made this same point in a tweet Tuesday, complete with photos of some of the “protesters” who were shot to death trying to rip down Israel’s wall and torch it with Molotov cocktails.

As I pointed out earlier today, footage tweeted by none other than CNN showed “unarmed” protesters waving handguns during the riots, debunking the media narrative that the hoard was peaceful and defenseless.
But then again, terrorists rarely are.
