(Scroll down for video) A Hamas terrorist who wanted to escape from Israeli soldiers, grabbed a small boy and used him as a human shield, the IDF Blog reported.

When Operation Protective Edge began, Lt. Adam Landau and other soldiers from the 188th Armored Brigade, were positioned along the northern border of Gaza.

During the operation’s ground phase, they were called to join the fighting in Gaza. “Once you enter enemy territory, something in your mind twitches,” he recalled after returning safely to Israel. “We fought against a huge number of Hamas terrorists there.”

On several occasions, Lt. Landau saw Hamas operatives using civilians as human shields. “Once, we started to look for a terrorist, who we knew was in a specific house,” he said. “Suddenly, a small boy appeared, and the terrorist grabbed him and escaped with him. They shot at us from mosques, schools, and of course from civilian houses,” Lt. Landau said.

“In the end, if they shoot at you from a mosque, there is no choice. You see a family’s house, you see the clothes hanging outside, and behind all of this is a terrorist holding an AK-47, shooting at you,” he continued.

“It is hard to shoot at a mosque. It is just like a synagogue for some people,” he concluded.
