The Steadfast People - IDF Interpretation

Translation/Interpretation/Caption Text: 

Arabic translation:

The steadfast people

Curator's note: The graphic in this poster shows Palestinian civilians in Gaza standing on the roofs of buildings during an Israeli bombardment

In its interpretation of this poster the IDF website states that:

1) Hamas "uses" such posters to encourage Palestinians to become heroes/marytrs by acting as human shields

2) Hamas is calling on the people to become human shields

Both of these assertions are incorrect. Hamas did not print or design this poster. It is also not a call to Palestinians to act - as heroes or anything else. Rather, it is an homage recording the actions of the people of Gaza
