Though Israel uses unique and sophisticated battlefield tactics to minimize civilian casualties, Hamas's war crime of storing weapons in civilian facilities inevitably generates casualties.
In addition to straightforwardly endangering Palestinian civilians by putting them in close proximity to arms caches likely to draw Israeli fire, the amount of explosives - stored in schools, mosques, hospitals, and even zoos - all but guarantee additional damage.
Below are selections from a TIP YouTube collection documenting secondary explosions that go off in the aftermath of Israel targeting Hamas weapons caches. These near-guaranteed secondary explosions deepen the risk to Palestinian civilians located nearby.
