The Israelis Have Finally Responded and So Will the Media

After a weekend of Islamic attacks against Israel, I warned that “the savages are itching for a war — it’s imminent.” And I was right.

On Tuesday, Hamas shot and killed an Israel civilian (above) fixing a fence after the storm.

An Israeli man working on the border fence was killed by sniper fire Tuesday afternoon along the Gaza Strip.

The man, 22-year-old Saleh Abu Latif from the predominantly Bedouin city of Rahat, was working between Nahal Oz and Kfar Aza as a civilian employed by the Israeli Defense Ministry on repairs to a section of the Israel-Gaza border fence damaged in last week’s storm. The fence had collapsed in three locations due to the storm.

Typical of Muslim warfare: they start on Christmas eve. Religious holidays are always a favored day for war and bloodshed for devout Muslims waging jihad.

Of course, the media didn’t report any of this, and won’t until the Israelis react (which is long overdue).

The Israelis have finally responded. And so will the media.

The Israeli air force launched strikes Tuesday afternoon on targets in the Gaza Strip, in response to a sniper attack earlier that killed an Israeli civilian.

According to Israel Radio, the IAF destroyed a Hamas military training facility west of the Khan Yunis refugee camp. The report added that Hamas targets in the Gaza neighborhood of Zaytoun and the Al-Bureij camp were damaged by the IAF as well.

IDF tanks also fired shells at what it said were terror targets in the Gaza neighborhoods of Zaytoun, Shuja’iyya and the al-Bureij refugee camp.

Military sources said that the airstrikes are “limited in scope” and “are not ongoing.” Aside from a directive given to farmers to avoid the fields in direct proximity to the border, the IDF Home Front Command has issued no further orders to civilians in the area.

According to Palestinian sources in the Strip, two people — a 3-year-old child named Hala Sabiha and her father — were killed during the Israeli strikes, and nine were injured.

The father and daughter were killed during an airstrike on a target located in the central Gaza Strip refugee camp of Deir al-Balah, according to Palestinian Ma’an News agency. No casualties were reported as a result of the strike near Khan Yunis.

The IDF had no immediate comment on the report of Palestinian fatalities.

Shortly before the air force strikes, the Hamas leadership ordered the evacuation of all security personal from their posts in Gaza for fear of an imminent Israeli attack.

“Earlier today a Gaza sniper killed an Israeli civilian by firing a single bullet at his chest,” said the IDF spokesperson’s office in a statement. “The individual was shot while doing maintenance along the Israel-Gaza security fence in the northern Gaza Strip. This is the first Israeli civilian killed in the vicinity of the Gaza Strip since Operation Pillar of Defense” last year.

“In response, IAF aircrafts and IDF tanks and infantry retaliated and targeted terror sites in the Gaza Strip. The sites targeted were a weapon manufacturing facility and a terror infrastructure in the southern Gaza Strip, a terror site and another terror infrastructure in the central Gaza Strip, and a concealed rocket launcher in the northern Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed.”

  4. Hmmm, Israel is retaliating because of the murder of a civilian Arab Bedoin. That kind of messes up the whole "racist apartheid" narrative, doesn't it? Israel protects ALL of her citizens, regardless of race or religion.

    BTW, did you know that most Palestinian terrorists who are wounded get treated at Israeli hospitals? Ask yourself how a Palestinian hospital would treat a wounded IDF soldier… then tell me again, which side wants peace.

    According to much of the newsmedia it's ok for Arab/ Moslems occupying land in and around Israel to kill Israelis, but it's not ok for Israel to defend herself. Morality and truth are not important to much of the newsmedia. The goal of the Arab/ Moslems occupying land in and around Israel is the annihilation of Israel and the extermination of the Jewish people. They don't want to create a 22nd Arab/ Moslem controlled country. They want the destruction of the one and only Jewish state. A major technique in media's propaganda campaign is that they headline, highlight and report Israel's response to terrorism. The terrorist attacks themselves are only side bars.

    Bravo. Israel shouldn't wait to be attacked. Israel should destroy every arm factories the minute they know about it.

    Israel SHOULD ALSO BOMB THEM WHERE THEY LIVE AND NOT JUST THEIR FACTORIES. THEY MOVE THEIR FACTORIES ABOUT BUT IT IS THE MANPWOER THAT NEEDS TO BE OBLIRETAED.

  9. Gary Little says:

    WHEN THE JEWISH PEOPLES DEFEND THEY,RE SELFS ITS IN THE MEDIA AS BEING WRONG,WHEN PALESTINIANS SNEAK IN A JEWISH HOUSE HOLD AND CUT A CHILDS THROAT ITS NOT REPORTED IN THE MEDIA,ISRAEL SHOULD WAGE ALL OUT WAR AND GET IT OVER WITH BEFORE NUCLEAR BOMBS ARE INVOLVED.

  10. Gaza can be scraped from the map is there is the will to declare it a 'free fire zone' with all guns on target…enough is enough!
