The Israeli army said that Siam was camped in Rantisi Hospital in Gaza and that he was attacking civilians present in the hospital.
Siam was the commander of Hamas’s Nasser Radwan Company. The Israeli Army said that Siam is also an example of the fact that Hamas is using civilians as human shields for its terrorist plans.
