Terrorists attempt to justify using civilians as Human Shields by claiming they are engaged in 'Urban Warfare', requiring the hiding and fighting from within a civilian population, which they claim is completely different from using innocent civilians as 'Human Shields'.
- 'Urban Warfare' is combat conducted in, for example, House-to-House combat, not intentionally placing rocket launchers you are using to attack the next city / territory on top of hospitals or in schools.
'Hamas is not using innocent people as 'Human Shields' - the terrorists can't help that they live within civilian populations - 'There is just so much space in Gaza to go around'.
....and of course there is more BS attempts to justify Hamas using innocent civilians - children - as human shields from terrorist-supporting/sympathizing anti-Semites like Omar are willing to spread:

What Hamas likely won’t admit is that the other Palestinians who died during this altercation were used as human shields to protect the terrorists."
Recently, I had the opportunity to lead a congressional delegation to Jerusalem for the opening of the U.S. embassy. During our visit, The Jerusalem Post front page was “Promises Made, Promises Kept,” with a picture of President Trump. Sadly, while the United States was keeping its promise to...
H.R. 3542 states that it is U.S. policy to: (1) condemn the use of human shields by Hamas as an act of terrorism and a violation of human rights and international humanitarian law, and (2) act against those engaging in or supporting the use of human shields. The President is urged to direct the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations (U.N.) to use U.S. influence at the U.N. Security Council to secure support for a resolution imposing multilateral sanctions against Hamas's use of human shields.
Summary of H.R. 3542 (115th): Hamas Human Shields Prevention Act
Hamas' use of civilians as human shieldsHamas and the other terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip have adopted various tactics of using civilians as human shields. One of them is encouraging civilians to gather on roofs to prevent terrorists and their houses from being attacked by the Israeli Air Force.
