The IDF has released a video showing Razan al-Najjar, the Palestinian nurse allegedly killed by Israeli sniper fire on the Gaza border, throwing a gas grenade and acknowledging her role as a human shield for Hamas terrorists.
“Razan al-Najjar was not an angel of mercy as Hamas’ propaganda is trying to portray her,” Maj. Avichay Adraee, the Arabic-language spokesperson for the IDF, tweeted on Thursday. “Do medics around the world throw bombs, participate in riots and call themselves human shields?”
Najjar, 21, was killed in last week’s protests while trying to evacuate wounded Palestinians. An IDF inquiry found that no shots were fired directly at Najjar, who was unarmed, but did not rule out the possibility that she was killed from indirect fire.
