Does Hamas Encourage the Use of “Human Shields”?

Short answer:

No. That’s in Israeli propaganda to justify its mass-murder of Palestinians.

Long answer:

Israelis have been sharing a video of a Hamas official encouraging people to protest against Israeli bombings of their homes. That statement has been taken out of context and has been presented as a call for the usage of human shields in Gaza.
For more than a decade, Palestinians have adopted a strategy against Israeli shelling of houses, where families, with their friends and neighbors, mass targeted houses’ roofs as a nonviolent protest to deter Israeli warplanes from destroying the houses.

Violent or nonviolent (peaceful) resistance, Israel doesn’t differentiate as we witnessed bombings of houses filled with civilian Palestinians.
