Huge Terror Tunnel Explodes Underneath IDF Patrol

Friday, November 9th, 2012

On Thursday evening, the Gazans remotely exploded a terror tunnel filled with enough explosives to send an overhead IDF jeep flying meters into the air. Miraculously, no one was injured.

IDF Spokesperson Brig. Gen. Yoav (Poly) Mordechai stated that in recent weeks, a number of incidents have occurred in the southern Gaza Strip, including an attack using explosives against an IDF armored personnel carrier, an attack that injured a company commander, and another attack with explosives two days ago.

In addition, over the past two weeks, Palestinian terrorists have been exploding bombs along the Gaza border, one resulted in a Givati Captain Ziv Shilon losing his hand. On Thursday morning a tank was damaged in a mortar attack, and later in the day a construction working building the security fence was injured.

Subsequently, according to Mordechai, the new Gaza Division Commander decided to operate proactively to the west of the Gaza border fence.

An engineering force that operated at the site located a number of powerful explosive devices. With the end of this force’s activity, as it worked to repair the border fence, an explosion occurred in a terror tunnel. This was a very large explosion that exposed a tunnel roughly four meters deep and four meters wide. An empty IDF vehicle that was in the area was thrown into the air from the force of the explosion.

“It is possible that the incident was related to the discovery of explosives west of the [Gaza border] fence,” said the IDF Spokesperson. “We understand that this was a terror tunnel or a tunnel that was prepared for other things since there was a gap between the explosion and the neutralization. This was a very large tunnel, something which we haven’t experienced lately.”

According to Nana, one soldier was lightly injured, but did not need to be taken to the hospital.

Defense Minister Barak said, “Hamas is responsible and Israel will decide when and how to respond.”

According to Mordechai, this morning, IDF forces will continue searching in the area, and a situation assessment will be held, led by GOC Southern Command Maj. Gen. Tal Russo.

IAF Successfully Drops Flyers on Gaza

Monday, October 29th, 2012

The IAF dropped flyers onto Rafiach in southern Gaza explaining to them that they shouldn’t approach the border with Israel and try to break through.

The dropped letter stated:

Gazans,

Terrorist organizations operating among you, they use you as cover. Gaza residents are risking their lives on a regular basis because of the terrorist organizations. Their use of your residential areas, your houses and backyards and are creating a direct threat to your life, your children and your family.

Anything that will be viewed as a threat to Israeli territories, any attempt to breach the fence from your territories will result in a response designed to defend Israel’s sovereignty and ensure security to the population.

Warning: approaching the security fence within less than 300 meters will endanger your life.

IDF will use at any time, any and all the tools available to them to prevent anyone from approaching the fence and to disperse them by any means, including shooting if need be.

An ounce of prevention …

IDF Leadership

Maybe they should have added something more explicit about the rockets and mortars?

UK Writer Compares Security Barrier to the Warsaw Ghetto Wall

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

On Oct. 21, the Observer (sister publication of the Guardian) published a review, by film critic Philip French, of the film ‘5 Broken Cameras,’ a documentary produced by a Palestinian about his “resistance” to Israel’s security fence in Bil’in.

French writes the following:

“Emad Burnat, the peasant and smallholder who spends his days and nights recording life about him in his native Bil’in, the township where his family has lived for generations

Like Filip in Camera Buff, Emad bought his first camera when his fourth son, Gibreel, was born in 2005. He initially used it for home movies and then, at their invitation, to make similar pictures for his neighbours.

But fairly soon Emad developed a sense of empowerment and a duty to serve his community. His camera became a way of uniting his fellow [Bil’in] citizens, publicising their struggle and becoming a witness for posterity when the Israeli authorities sent in troops to deprive them of land to create a defensive barrier of steel and wire that later became a high concrete wall.”

Background not provided by French includes the fact that, before the fence was erected, terrorists moved freely from Palestinian cities such as Bil’in to Israeli ones killing hundreds of innocent Jewish civilians.

French also fails to note the 2011  relocation of the fence bordering Bil’in due to a ruling by Israel’s Supreme Court, which enlarged Palestinian territory, making the village more suitable for Palestinian agricultural.

However, in addition to the story’s predictable Palestinian narrative, the most absurd claim is made by French in the following passage:

Emad developed a sense of empowerment and a duty to serve his community. His camera became a way of uniting his fellow citizens, publicising their struggle and becoming a witness for posterity when the Israeli authorities sent in troops to deprive them of land to create a defensive barrier of steel and wire that later became a high concrete wall. Inevitably, seeing this barrier going up in Israel we think of the wall surrounding the Warsaw ghetto, the one that appeared overnight in Berlin…

Of course, any sane commentator would dismiss out of hand the notion that Israel’s security wall evokes (in any conceivable manner) the Jewish ghetto walls erected by the Nazis.

The Warsaw Ghetto, the largest Jewish ghetto in Nazi-occupied Europe, was established in the Polish capital in 1940. Eventually, over 400,000 Jews resided in an area of 3.4 km. From there, at least 254,000 ghetto residentswere sent to the Treblinka death camp over a period of two months in 1942.

Average food rations in 1941 for Jews in Warsaw were limited to a mere 184 calories, and, among the Jews who weren’t sent to Nazi death camps, over 100,000 of the ghetto’s residents died due to disease, starvation or random killings.

Bil’in is a Palestinian administered town, and is not a ghetto in even the broadest sense of the word.

The Warsaw ghetto walls were designed to keep Jews from escaping.

Israel’s security fence was designed to keep terrorists from infiltrating Israel and murdering Jews.

Israel’s security fence would only evoke a Holocaust-related comparison for those inebriated by the constant drumbeat of Guardian anti-Zionist propaganda.
