The website Yoni Alper – Terror Watch reported tonight that sources within the terror organizations in Gaza are claiming that thousands of warriors have been deployed in the suburbs of Gaza and along the border with Israel, in anticipation of engaging IDF ground forces, should Israel decide to turn the Pillar of Defense operation into a full scale invasion. Those sorces are saying that suicide squads have been positioned in the area, as well as other “surprises.”
An SMS from the Islamic Jihad to several Israeli Journalists has warned that, should the IDF commit a “stupid mistake” and send ground troops into the Gaza Strip, it would become their graveyard. The SMS also promised to ignite Gaza in a hellfire.
The military arm of Hamas has announced that its forces have been deployed near the border with Israel, including suicide units, special units, observation units. The Hamas has promised a “tunnel war” against the armored vehicles, should those dare enter Gaza.
According the Terror Watch, the Islamic Jihad is convinced that the IDF is not planning to enter Gaza, and that the entire operation is merely a form of psychological warfare. They insist Israel is interested in bringing an end to the fighting.
