Israel claims it’s rounding up “Hamas fighters,” but photos seem to depict civilian men and boys being humiliated and dehumanized by IDF
12/12/2023 // Ethan Huff // Views

Israel is going for the gold in its war on Gaza, which aims to take over the entire land strip and absorb it into the borders of Israel.

The latest Israeli stunt towards this end involves Israel Defense Forces (IDF) rounding up civilian boys and men in the Palestinian enclave and humiliating and abusing them for the world to see.

Initially, Israel claimed that circulating photos and video footage of almost-naked Palestinian males lined up and crouched down were Hamas militants. It was later revealed, however, that the photos and videos were staged, and that Israel is once again abusing civilians in its quest to assume ownership of remaining Palestinian land.

The video below addresses the staged footage that Israel has been circulating as part of a shock and awe campaign designed to demoralize the Palestinian people and their supporters while giving a morale boost to Israelis:

"It makes no sense that the Israeli soldiers, upon discovering an armed fighter, would wait to strip and line up everyone, prepare to take a video and then order that person to surrender his weapon through a loudspeaker, calling him 'habibi' (my dear in Arabic)," reports Al Jazeera.

"Media reports later revealed that the Israeli army had forcibly taken the Palestinian men and boys after separating them from their families in United Nations-run schools which serve as shelters for the displaced in northern Gaza. Some of the men have been identified as UN workers, aid workers and at least one journalist. The man who was made to hold the gun is believed to be a shopkeeper."

(Related: Recently, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu went on an unhinged rant about how the entire world is "antisemitic" for not believing all of Israel's claims.)

Israel, the terror state

It appears as though much of what Israel accused Hamas militants of doing on October 7 to Israelis is what the Israeli military is doing to Palestinian civilians as it systematically guts the Gaza Strip of all remaining residents.

We now know that IDF soldiers are separating young men and boys from their families and basically torturing them without mercy. The whereabouts of many of these Palestinian civilian men and boys is unknown, while others have been reported dead.

"Those who have been released have described torture and beatings at the hands of Israeli soldiers," Al Jazeera further reports. "The fate of many remains unknown, but given the deaths of at least six Palestinian prisoners and reports of widespread torture and other ill-treatment, there is a high chance they will face abuse as well."

The photos and video footage that Israel released to promote its interests have actually backfired as journalists and others are using the evidence to identify some of the detained, all while disproving Israeli lies that these men and boys are Hamas fighters.

The fact that Israel published the video footage and photos at all constitutes war crimes under the Geneva Convention, which prohibits "cruel treatment and torture" as well as "outrages upon personal dignity, in particular humiliating and degrading treatment."

Many who have reviewed the evidence are comparing it to the U.S. "rendition" program and torture at black sites like Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and the Guantanamo Bay detention center. Many also now see the U.S. and Israeli war on Gaza as being similar to the genocidal practices of Serb militias in the Bosnian war.

Ret. Israeli Brigadier-General Shlomo Brom recently told NPR that the images Israel published never should have been published at all because of the humiliation depicted. According to Brom, Israel is waging a "psychological war against Hamas."
