Top secret Hamas documents were discovered following the group's terror attacks on Israel that showed the intentional targeting of children.
The documents detailed plans to attack schools and a youth center to kill as many people as possible.

"The documents also ordered the soldiers to take hostages and return back to Gaza as fast as possible. More than 1,300 Israelis were murdered, 3,000+ more were injured, and well over 100 hostages were taken," the Daily Wire reported.
"Surveillance footage viewed by NBC News lined up closely to the orders that were given in the documents, including the use of specific tactics," it added.

"The dental office, the supermarket, the dining hall," an Israel Defense Forces source said, according to NBC News. "The level of specificity would cause anyone in the intelligence field's jaw to drop."
"The plan of coordinated attacks flies in the face of recent claims by Hamas that it did not kill children. A video released by Hamas on Friday showed armed terrorists holding and feeding Israeli children taken hostage, including babies," it continued.
"An IDF official told the outlet that there is an ongoing investigation and he's 'never seen this kind of detailed planning' for a mass terrorist attack," Just the News stated.
"Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared war last week following an unprecedented attack by Hamas. More attacks are expected to come," it added.
Israel has responded by closing off the Gaza Strip and ordered civilians to evacuate by Friday night. Electricity, food, and water are being cut off to the area as part of a blockade.
The Hamas attacks were the worst on the Jewish people since the Holocaust, with Israel planning serious retaliation over the many lives lost in the attacks over the past week.
