IDF discovers Hamas trove of rigged dolls, children’s backpacks, explosives
New York Post ^ | Dec. 15, 2023 | Olivia Land

Israeli soldiers foiled “an elaborate Hamas ambush” that used dolls and children’s backpacks rigged with speakers playing sounds of crying to lure them into a terrorist tunnel in the Gaza Strip, the Israel Defense Forces said Friday.

Footage released by the IDF showed the alley where the ambush would have been staged.

“Here in every corner were … explosives,”

.... The forces subsequently found children’s dolls and backpacks with speakers to imitate crying sounds and songs, the footage showed.

“The goal is to draw us in to look for, to see these things … they play voices in Hebrew so we’ll think there are hostages and missing persons here. In order to draw us into the area that’s rigged with explosives,” the soldier explained while gesturing at the pile of troubling objects.

“There’s ammunition and weapons here, explosives hidden in UNRWA bags,” he added, referring to the UN agency tasked with assisting Palestinian refugees.


The rigged children’s objects and explosives were all placed intentionally near a tunnel that linked with Hamas’ infamous underground network, the IDF’s statement said.

“This network extends under other nearby civilian structures, including a school and a medical clinic.

“It also connects to a mosque containing a Hamas command center equipped with cameras that were monitoring IDF troops,” the military write-up claimed.

No happiness for Hamas, just killing 24/7.

This is an avenue of bad PR for Hamas.

Would be an uncomfortable talking point at American Christmas gatherings if conservatives weren’t made to be on good behavior with hands folded and silent and head down so Dems will permit them to attend festivities.

Those crazy enough to still have a favorable view of Hamas are likely to assume that its all a frame-up or something.

Echoes of the IEDs in children's things done by the Taliban in Afghanistan.

The model is Mohamed, as they brag "made victorious by terror." Nothing new. Everything Islamic. War is always brutal, but to trick children into it is beyond heinous.

The only success the UN has ever had was to reproduce Adolph’s mein kampf into a global movement of jew hating nazi’s rioting unchecked through the cities of the world demanding concentration camps and ovens to cook their dark intentions.
