The Israeli government on Tuesday sought to downplay their assassination of Nahida Khalil Anton and her daughter Samar Kamal Anton at a church in Gaza by shamelessly smearing the pair as "Hamas spotters."

From Israel National News, "IDF: Our troops fired at Hamas spotters in Gaza church":
The IDF on Tuesday concluded an initial review of an incident on Sunday in which two women were reportedly shot in the area of the Latin Church in Shejaya, Gaza.

The Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem blamed the IDF for the incident, claiming its snipers shot dead the two women, a mother and daughter, while they were inside the church.

The Patriarchate accused the IDF of shooting the women "in cold blood and without warning" inside the premises of the church.

The IDF said in a statement on Tuesday that the review "found that on December 17th, in the early afternoon, Hamas terrorists launched a Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) at IDF troops from the vicinity of the church. The troops then identified three people in the vicinity, operating as spotters for Hamas by guiding their attacks in the direction of the IDF troops. In response, our troops fired towards the spotters and hits were identified."

"While this incident occurred in the area where the two women were reportedly killed, the reports received do not match the conclusion of our initial review which found that the IDF troops were targeting spotters in enemy lookouts. We are continuing our examination of the incident," the statement added.
What a load of crap.

"Nahida and her daughter Samar were shot and killed as they walked to the Sister's Convent," the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem said in a statement on Saturday. "One was killed as she tried to carry the other to safety."

"Seven more people were shot and wounded as they tried to protect others inside the church compound. No warning was given, no notification was provided. They were shot in cold blood inside the premises of the parish, where there are no belligerents," the patriarchate added.

The Pope on Sunday condemned the attack as "terrorism."

The same IDF that killed these women in cold blood admitted last week that they shot and killed three of their own hostages in Gaza while they were shirtless, shouting "help" in Hebrew and waving a white flag.
