“We thought we would need more rooms (to house the evacuees). We didn’t need all the rooms,” IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Richard Hecht told CNN.
Hamas terrorists also beheaded babies and shot entire families in their homes on Kibbutz Kfar Aza, the Israeli military said.
There, bodies litter the streets among burned houses, scattered furniture and burned cars.
Yesterday, Israeli soldiers went from house to house removing the dead, furious that innocent people had been killed “not in war, nor on a battlefield, but in their beds.”
In the neighboring kibbutz of Kisufim, a peace-loving village of 375 souls tending avocado trees and herds of dairy cows, horror was unleashed at 6:20 a.m. Saturday as Hamas terrorists threw grenades.
Mr Harel, 33, a kibbutz resident, told Sam Greenhill of the Daily Mail: “They came to kill, to mistreat and to desecrate. They came to my grandmother’s house. She was 90 years old.
Jina Semiaitz, who had lived on the kibbutz since she was a young woman, heard the gunshots and went to her armored shelter, but did not lock the door, he said.
Brimming with anger, her grandson said: “She was terrified and confused, she can’t hear very well and she didn’t realize what was happening.

“She was the sweetest old lady, and they took her out of her shelter and dragged her to her living room.
“They shot him twice in the head. A 90 year old woman – what harm could she do to them? Then they went to his 71-year-old cousin, Ofer Ron, and shot him in exactly the same way. These are the new Nazis.
Hamas terrorists continued their manhunt throughout the communal farm. Mr Harel said: “An 80-year-old man was handcuffed behind his back.
“They pushed him into the backseat and kidnapped him from his own car. We don’t know what happened to him or if he is still alive.
“There was a family – a mother, a father and a 15-year-old boy. They hid in their shelter. The terrorists therefore set fire to their house.
Hamas gunmen massacred 40 children on a single farm, their little bodies lying in their rooms riddled with bullets.
And as shocked survivors told their stories, a grieving grandson, Shmuel Harel, told the Daily Mail: “They are the new Nazis. It was a holocaust, pure and simple.
He said the final moments of his terrified 90-year-old grandmother were as she was dragged into her living room and shot twice in the head.

Mr. Harel, who is a business consultant, said: “We live on a kibbutz. He is a lover of peace. But these people behaved like Nazis, like Isis.
“They killed, then they mistreated the bodies. We need the world to know what happened on Kibbutz Kisufim so it never happens again.
In Leonardo Square, Mr. Harel and some 300 survivors from Kisufim – 800 meters from the Gaza fence and close to the open-air festival where hundreds were massacred – gather in groups after being evacuated.
Benny Hason, a 66-year-old kibbutz veteran, consoles people table by table. He said: “They were walking in front of our houses, shouting ‘Massacre the Jews’ in Arabic and shooting with rifles and shotguns.
“They were throwing grenades at houses. Most people had entered their shelters and locked the doors – but the terrorists were trying to blow up the doors with their bombs. Not everyone was lucky. Today our community is smaller.
