The Israeli occupation forces resorted to various ploys, including the use of humanitarian aid trucks and furniture moving lorries, to infiltrate into the Nuseirat refugee camp and perpetrate their heinous carnage in the central part of the besieged Gaza Strip, according to reports.

Local sources in the coastal enclave told Turkey’s Anadolu news agency that Israel’s special forces, who retrieved on Saturday four captives held by the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas in central Gaza since October last year after killing and injuring hundreds of Palestinians in the Nuseirat refugee camp, used a humanitarian aid truck to sneak their way into the area.

“The Israeli special forces used a closed transport truck and a civilian vehicle in the infiltration operation to retrieve the hostages,” the sources told Anadolu.

“These transport vehicles are widespread in the Gaza Strip and are used to transport humanitarian aid during the Israeli war,” they added.

Two witnesses also told Qatar-based Al Jazeera television network that a unit of Israeli soldiers arrived in a truck carrying furniture to pretend as if they were displaced Palestinians moving into a residential building in the Nuseirat refugee camp.

“They arrived in an undercover truck, pretending to be moving furniture as if they were displaced individuals,” one witness said. “They bombed my house, as well as my brother’s and the neighbors’.”

Another witness told Al Jazeera that Israeli soldiers used a ladder to climb into his home as he was preparing breakfast for his wife and baby.

“I caught sight of a special forces unit. It had furniture in the vehicle to make it look like it belonged to displaced people. Suddenly the operative got out two ladders and came into our home fully armed. Chaos erupted with gunfire and explosions,” he said.

“My 18-month baby boy cried out in fear,” he added. “My wife was screaming.”
