Recovered Hamas GoPro Shows Beginning of Attacks

This footage, purportedly recovered from a Hamas KIA, depicts the beginnings of the attacks on Israeli civilian targets. While the overall focus of the video isn't particuarly poignant, as with most horror, the devil is in the details. At 0:16, we see a Hamas terrorist who has apparently looted a child's bicycle helmet, and the implications of that are sobering, as are the spaced single shots in the background of the video. At 0:31, the cameraman records his buddy bravely destroying a security camera, and at 0:46, the footage transitions to two terrorists collaboratively failing to fire an RPG. While this in itself is a small blessing, the gunfire in the background keeps it from being humorous. This footage was recovered by South First Responders, a collective group of paramedics and EMTs who are working in warm zones recently cleared by IDF.
