In a remarkable display of courage, a Gaza resident stood up against the claims of Al-Jazeera, a Qatar-based channel known for its pro-Hamas stance, to voice her grievances against Hamas, the de facto governing authority in the Gaza Strip. Contradicting the Hamas narrative, the woman argued that the problem with humanitarian aid in Gaza is not due to a lack of international support, but rather the misappropriation of resources by Hamas.
According to the woman’s response to the Al-Jazeera journalist, significant aid enters Gaza but fails to reach its rightful beneficiaries—the people of Gaza. She claimed that the organization diverts these resources for its purposes, including maintaining its network of underground tunnels. Her statements directly challenged the journalist’s remarks, who tried to correct her by saying that only a limited amount of aid reaches Gaza and is appropriately distributed by Hamas.
The interview took a more dramatic turn when the Gaza resident, responding to the journalist’s implication of fair aid distribution, openly stated that Hamas shoots whoever it wants and does whatever it pleases. This rare moment of public criticism on a major Arab news outlet highlights the pressure faced by the population of Gaza from both the terrorism of Hamas and the Israeli attacks provoked by this terrorist organization’s attack on October 7, aimed at disrupting the reconciliation of Arab countries with Israel.
