Manelis educated French MPs on the situation in Gaza, about which many of them were not aware. 

IDF Spokesperson, Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis addressed the French National Assembly and clarified the facts surrounding Gaza’s violence and Israel’s defense against it.

He referred to Hamas’ attempt to exploit a 7-year-old girl wearing pajamas during the violent riots in the Gaza Strip, using her as a weapon in its nefarious strategy to attack Israel.

While Hamas wanted her shot dead, Israel returned her safely to her parents.

One of the most important things Manelis did during the two-hour session was to expose the connections between all of Iran’s “terrorist tentacles,” and especially those in Gaza.
