Hamas Using 10 Europeans as Human Shields

From Israel’s Foreign Ministry

Hamas is not allowing at least 22 foreign nationals who wish to exit the Gaza Strip for Israel to do so. Among the foreigners being detained are nine Italian citizens, one Canadian, one South Korean, a French national and six journalists from Japan. In addition, two Turkish Red Crescent members have been refused exit.

That’s the problem with touring places run by the local version of the Taliban. Just because you can enter, doesn’t mean that you’ll be able to leave when there’s a strategic reason for those running the show to keep you there.

For now there’s no word that they’re being moved into position as human shields, but it’s a clear attempt to keep pressure on their governments to intervene by keeping their citizens in danger.
