"They found a little hole, 120 people snuffed it. One hundred and twenty people were in this mosque. This I knew. They talked about it. They fled to the mosque because they thought that was the safest place - that there they wouldn't kill them. Because they knew Israelis would not destroy a mosque."On the Dahamsh Mosque Massacre (from the filmed testimony of a Palmach-Yiftach Brigade fighter)
