An injured Israeli soldier is evacuated by helicopter from near the Israeli border with Gaza Strip on July 21, 2014, following heavy fighting between Israeli soldiers and Gaza terrorists.

The IDF is set to call up an additional 16,000 reservists today (Thursday) to give soldiers in Gaza “some breathing room”, bringing the total of reserve soldiers called up to 86,000.

The IDF continues to dismantle the terror tunnels in Gaza while deepening its hold on Gaza.


For the first time since the start of Operation Protective Edge, the IDF entered the Jabalya refugee camp. Israeli forces reportedly stepped up military strikes on Hamas targets as well.

In one incident, Givati forces shot and killed a gunman who fired an anti-tank missile at troops in southern Gaza overnight. In the course of house searches in central Gaza, IDF soldiers uncovered sensitive intelligence on the IDF gathered by Hamas.

Also found were numerous weapons and a large number of tunnels used as bunkers linking a string of houses.

A joint IDF task force uncovered a tunnel entrance on the ground floor of a mosque that was used by Hamas terrorists to attack Israeli soldiers.

It was discovered last night that two explosive devices were detonated against the soldiers who penetrated the structure that masqueraded as an UNRWA clinic. One was planted within the tunnel uncovered by the IDF. The second was concealed within the clinic itself. The explosion caused the building to collapse, killing three members of an elite paratrooper unit, Staff Sgt. Matan Gotlib, 21 and Staff Sgt. Omer Hay, 21, and Staff Sgt. Guy Algranati, 20. Fifteen others were wounded; it brings to 56 the number of IDF soldiers killed in three weeks of fight. Three civilians have died.

Israel called for another humanitarian truce yesterday afternoon, which Hamas did not reciprocate. During the four hour period, Hamas fired 26 rockets and missiles at Israel, including two that were intercepted over Ashkelon and Netivot. Hamas fired more than 130 rockets into Israel in the course of the day.

An Israeli delegation reportedly flew to Cairo for ceasefire discussions, and left after just a few hours. The Hamas delegation did not show up. Egypt reportedly refused to host a Palestinian delegation until Hamas ceases fire, which it is refusing to do.

Channel 2 reports some 300,000 residents of southern Israel have left their homes since the start of Operation Protective Edge due to the rocket fire from Gaza and the infiltration threat. Many are reluctant to return as the tunnel threat is still imminent.

Since last night, the IDF and IAF have targeted some 110 terror activity sites across Gaza. Included were five houses belonging to senior Hamas officials who used their homes as command and control centers.

Over the past 24 hours more than 140 rockets were fired at Israel. Of those, 81 rockets hit Israel, 9 were intercepted, and 50 – a full 36 percent — fell short in Gaza, possibly indicating either a loss in the number of competent rocketeers or a drop in the quality of ordnance.

Hamas has fired over 2,670 rockets at Israeli civilians since the beginning of Operation ‘Protective Edge’.



  1. Peace will come only when the Palestinians love their children more than they hate us … This one and only truth

    Fact, you all Smartass lets see what would you do if you were throwing missiles at you and indiscriminate digging a tunnel for your child’s room … Hamas commits war crimes but we are smart and we developed the Iron Dome system that keeps us, the value of our life is important … peace will come on the day that they will love their children more than they hate us … anyone who supports the Palestinians is blind and uneducated

    Fact, we Israelis had contributed to the world than all the Arab world together, we have developed medicines, medical devices, we have won Nobel Prizes, we have developed technology and high-tech at the highest levels and what you did that you raise the nose up? Say thank you hypocrites you live thanks to our medications and your life easy thanks to our technology, we cultured What are you? Just hate You brought the world

    Fact Hamas executed protesters from Gaza, the Arab world is busy hating Jews and he did not want to see the truth

    Fact, I do not like to see the sights of the children of Palestine are suffering and hungry, if only you would give to Israel to help we lived near each other in prosperity but you teach currently only hatred

    Fact, Palestinians are scattered from Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Algeria, Iraq, Kurdistan, Bahrain, Oman, Saudi Arabia and Sudan… Arafat was born in Egypt … why he came to Gaza?
    Fact, Israeli Arabs are part of the Arab nation and have no own unique national characteristics. This approach also relies on cultural similarity that exists between the Palestinian residents of the West Bank and Gaza Arabs residents of the Kingdom of Transjordan and Arabs in Egypt and other Arab countries

    Fact, Azmi Bishara, a Palestinian, said: “There is no Palestinian nation, has only Arab nation”.
    There is no such thing as Palestinians, just Arabs then go back to your Arab countries who do not want you back

    Fact written in the Koran: “Moses said to his israel people, my people, remember the grace inclined you God establish you prophets and doing you kings, and gives you had not given anyone in the Universe. My people, go to the holy land that wrote you God. Sura 5 20-21 … it is written for you in black and white in the Qur’an then why are you denying the truth that Israel was our lot before the Palestinians came here?

    Fact, we Israelis want peace and condemn all attacks on civilians and certainly not deliberately kill women and children and even take care of them our hospitals, we can not say that on Palestinians were just trying to kill, stab, kidnap and bomb the Israeli

    Fact, Hamas has fired near Shifa Hospital and due to a failure of the missile launching Hamas killing its citizens, so who does not care about innocent people? Only Palestinians

    Fact, we left Gaza a few years ago and instead the Palestinians will use it to develop infrastructure, economic, cultural and education they choose to invest in any area of terrorism and money

    Fact, in the Arab world were already in government coups in Egypt, Sudan, Libya and soon Syria, if not better then Gaza residents rise up against Hamas and we’ll be the first to help them

    Fact, those who support the kidnapping, murder, stone throwing, stabbings, throwing Molotov cocktails, burning flags and endless more terrible things are Palestinians and Arabs So who’s not human? Israelis want peace but we will not hesitate to eliminate anyone who Restoration us

    Fact, you are all hypocrites and deny one truth, before you speak against us I suggest you visit here for a few days and then see who is human and who behaves like an animal

    Fact, we Israelis want peace and live in peace side by side with Palestinians
    Fact, the Palestinians do not want it their goal to destroy us then their punishment to suffer and live like this

    Fact, the only reason there is a siege on Gaza is because if there is no control they are will put only weapons and not supplies and necessities to Gaza residents

    Fact, before you send a message with curses, give a real solution to the situation and not as ordinary messages like Israel is not our country, give a solution where we can live side by side in true peace as all Jews want

    Fact Hamas and other terrorist organizations they are the real enemies of the Arab world, Palestinians and Jews that prevent us from living in peace

  2. Keep up the good work (all branches of Israel Defense Forces). I am praying unceasingly for each of you and Israel. I also pray for the Peace of Jerusalem. I support Israel’s right to defend herself 100%. Push on. Ignore US President Obama. I voted for him twice and now regret it.

  3. I don’t get it, aren’t they all Jihad? They all were sent to dead for the cause, isn’t it…the grow up and became suicide bombers…ah!… Now, I see!
    They are little slaves, they feed them hate, train them as terrorist bombers, the send them to build the tunnels to kill others.

  4. 15,200 rockets fired at Israel since 2001
    11,000 rockets fired at Israel since 2005 from Gaza
    Out of that there were 35 fatalities and 1,700 injuries
    How is this even possible. Either the Arabs are the stupidest people on the planet or G-d has obviously chosen which nation to protect. I think it’s both.

  5. #Syria, #Iraq, #Afghanistan, #Sudan, #Malaysia, #Nigeria, #Kenya, etc.,. …those are the countries where people get slaughtered to thousands every minute… and no one cares. ??? Wake Up World we get fooled…. there’s a mass slaughter going on and the whole world is looking at #Israel ? Until today there’s NO evidence at all that there’s more than 20 #PAs in #Gaza dead. Not even the Press confirmed. And any graves aren’t dig yet. If there are REALLY more than 1000 #PAs dead Where are they ??? And please don’t fool the world AGAIN with pics / vids from those already named countries, I’m sick of it. #Hamas is holding a carrot in front of our noses and we fell for it, so we all look away from the ‘real’ slaughters – a killing spree by Muslim Terrorists to take over one country after the other. We are all so dumb. We all following the media and they play with us. They have us there , where they want us. We accept a Mass slaughter from #Christians & ‘#Infidels’ during the time we get ‘entertained’ by #Hamas and those crying grown ass men holding up dead kids. That makes me sick & very angry. Why are dead #Muslims more worth than dead #Christians, #Buddhists, #Hindus or dead #Jews? Where’s the difference? Where’s the outcry? Damn I’m so angry.. :/ I #STANDwithISRAEL <3
