Hamas Denies Truckloads of Israeli Humanitarian Aid Headed to Gaza

The propaganda coming out of the Gaza Strip area of the Middle East is astounding. The Palestinian/Hamas duo of misdirection has gotten to the point that the American media are now seemingly defending terrorists.

Just to further prove my point that it’s not about “innocent people” to Hamas — as well as the Palestinians — is news coming out that Hamas turned away humanitarian aid from Israel on Tuesday.

According to the Jerusalem Post:

The IDF [Israel Defense Forces] said it coordinated the transfer of eight truckloads of vital medical equipment through the Kerem Shalom crossing due to severe humanitarian conditions in the Hamas-controlled enclave, with hospitals struggling to treat Palestinians wounded in clashes on the Israel-Gaza border on Monday and Tuesday.

Hamas accepted four trucks of aid supplied by the Palestinian Authority and two trucks supplied by UNICEF. But two truckloads of medical aid provided by the IDF were turned away when the origin of the equipment became apparent.

In addition to 53 tons of medical equipment set to be transported into Gaza this week via the crossing, the increased Israeli aid included more than 14,000 units of intravenous infusions, 40 medical basins, 20 medical examination couches, 25 infusion stands, 85,000 disinfectant pads and 12,500 bandages.

Barbarians! If Hamas — or the Palestinians — really cared about the innocent people affected by the conflict currently happening in Gaza then they would have no problem accepting aid that would go towards helping and/or saving said innocent people. Then again, it's not really surprising coming a terrorist group like Hamas.

Now, how many innocent people were affected by the conflict is up for debate. But, a Hamas official reportedly said in an interview that 50 of the 62 people killed during the unrest were Hamas.

Since the media is steadfastly behind the Palestinians with their questionable reporting — simply because President Trump has aligned himself as an Israeli ally by moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to the capital of Jerusalem — what are people to believe when watching the news? How is the American media’s reporting of this conflict any different than the propaganda being received by Hamas and the Palestinians?

All of these are important questions. But to deny humanitarian aid in the middle of a conflict is again barbaric.
