Northern Gaza’s Holfe Mosque was struck by Israel’s Air Force early Friday morning because of its reported multi-purpose use by Hamas to launch rockets into Israel, facilitate meetings by the terrorist group’s members, and house arms and communication equipment for the radical Islamist group’s terror attacks.

The Holfe Mosque is located inside the U.N.-operated Jabalyah a/k/a Jabalia camp just a few kilometers from Israel:

On Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2008, the IAF struck a different mosque in Gaza City reportedly used by Hamas as a Grad missile and Qassam rocket launch site, staging ground, and storage area.

This is a classic example of Hamas repeatedly using civilian population centers as human shields. Recently slain Hamas terror leader Nizar Rayan a/k/a Rayyan was an open proponent of hiding the group’s terrorists amidst civilian human shields inside Gaza.

The video below taken by an IAF drone shows a 2007 attack in progress when terrorists launched rockets from a U.N.-operated school in Beit Hanoun, Gaza. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon deplored the attack, calling it a an “abuse of UN facilities, which is a serious violation of the UN’s privileges and immunities…[and the type of] actions that endanger the lives of civilians, especially children.”
