Israel-Hamas war: Gazans say Hamas militants beat up merchants, gauge prices of food

Gazan residents spoke to the Free Press about their experience living in the territory during the Hamas-Israel war.

Some of the interviewed Gazans were critical of Hamas militants, who they accused of terrorizing residents.

"[Hamas] is driving around in jeeps, shooting in the air, beating up merchants … and where are those trucks [of aid]?" one Gazan said.

Another Gaza resident said that he recently went to the market to get chicken and saw that the price was unusually high. When he asked Hamas police nearby if they prohibited price gauging, the officials claimed they did but told the resident to just not buy the chicken.

"Folks are saying if they'll stay in power...they'll grow stronger and more oppressive," a resident said.
