The reporter then claimed that a lot of aid is coming in and distributed to the people of Gaza, to which the woman replied: "Hamas take everything to their homes."

The reporter said: "It seems that the situation is unclear."

Woman: "Hamas takes everything to their homes. They can take me, shoot me, or do whatever they want to me..."

Interviewer: "It seems that the situation is unclear."
