Report: IDF Eliminates Hamas Money Man [video]

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

Initial reports are coming out from Gaza that an IDF strike in Northern Gaza on Sunday took out Mohammed Talat al-Ghoul, who was allegedly the money man for Hamas and responsible for all Hamas money transfers.

Ynet now reports that the strike was done from the air on the car he was driving.

It is believed that the accompanying photo is of the strike.

You can see what remains of a lot of money that was being transported in the car, as firemen try to put out the fire.

(Note: Some sites are writing his name as Mohamed Al-Oul)

Rock-Throwing Terrorist Hits Jewish Driver in the Head, Car Overturns

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

A resident of the southern Hevron Hills is in serious condition from injuries to the skull after an Arab rock-throwing terrorist hit him in the head shortly after midnight Saturday, forcing his car to overturn.

The victim’s wife and baby, who were traveling in the car on their way home, were not hurt.

The terrorist struck between Al Aroob and Carmei Tzur, immediately south of Gush Etzion and one of the favorite launching areas for Arab attacks on Jewish drivers. The IDF routinely stations jeeps in the area, but restraints on dealing with rock-throwers have hampered deterrence,

The victim was rushed to Hadassah Hospital and is undergoing surgery Sunday morning for internal bleeding and skull fractures.

Prayers are being said for the recovery of Yedayah ben Orna.

Syrian Fighters Launch Five Rockets at the Golan Heights

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

Syrian rebels or forces loyal to Syrian President Bassar al-Assad attacked the Golan Heights with five rockets overnight, hours after at least two rockets from Lebanon exploded in northwestern Israel.

Six people suffered light injuries or shock in the attacks from Lebanon, and no one was injured in the rocket explosions in the Golan Heights, where sirens warned residents of incoming missiles approximately an hour and a half after midnight. All of the rockets exploded in open areas although some of them hit dangerously close to communities.

Israel holds Assad as responsible for attacks from Syria.

The attacks are not necessarily a sign that Israel is facing a second war simultaneous with the Hamas’ “Operation Suicide Wish.” The rocket attacks may have come from Palestinian terrorists or a rogue terrorist cell.

If Assad’s forces, Al Qaeda, ISIS, Hezbollah or any other terrorist organization is trying to lull Israel into a war north of the border, it might be just what the world needs because Israel. If Israel has a need to defend itself from the Syrian army or rebel terrorists, it is the only country with the motivation and capability to teach the same lesson Hamas is learning.

It would be interesting to hear the world’s reaction if the Israel Air Force would wipe out a few hundreds terrorists and dozens of civilians caught in crossfire, considering that Assad’s forces and rebel terrorists have murdered more than 150,000 civilians.

Previous to last night’s rocket attacks from Syria, the Golan Heights has been an occasional target for rocket fire and mortar shells, often drawing IDF artillery fire in return.

The Lebanese army and Hezbollah seem to be more interested in preserving quiet on their side of the border, and the rare rocket attacks from southern Lebanon the past couple of months have been ascribed to rogue Palestinian Authority terrorists.

Meanwhile, Hamas continues to attacks southern Israel. The funeral for four-year-old Daniel Tregerman, killed by a mortar shell Friday night, will be held Sunday.

Gaza rockets also have caused moderate to serious injuries to several people in the south and have hit buildings, including a synagogue in Ashdod, but Hamas overall has failed to cause widespread damage and casualties while it is depleting its resources.

The IDF estimates that Hamas retains approximately 25 percent of its rocket stockpile. That works out to 2,000 rockets and missiles, more or less, enough to cause lethal damage, but so far, the Iron Dine anti-missile system and a lot of help from above have made all but mockery of Hamas attacks, despite the deaths of four civilians.

IDF: ‘Dear Gazans, Beware’

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

The Israeli Air Force dropped tens of thousands of leaflets on Gaza Saturday, warning them that any house connected with terrorists is a fair target.

The IDF has provided a translation of the leaflets:

“To the residents of Gaza,

“The IDF intends to attack terrorists and terror infrastructure across the Gaza Strip.

“Hamas leadership, while remaining in underground hiding, disregarding the civilians’ needs and wishes for tranquility, will be pursued.

“Israel is currently attacking, and will continue to attack, every area from which terror activities against Israel originate. Every house from which militant activity is carried out, will be targeted.

“For your own safety, prevent terrorists from utilizing your property for terror agendas, and stay away from every site in which terrorist organizations are operating.

“The IDF calls you to distance yourselves from where fire was directed at Israel. The IDF’s campaign has not​ been ​concluded.

“Beware

“Israeli Defense Forces”

A recorded message to Gaza residents stated, “Hamas leadership has decided to drag you to another battle. Prevent terrorists from utilizing your property for terror agendas, and stay away from every site in which terrorist organizations are operating.”

IDF Retaliation: 3 Dead Terrorists in Gaza

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

At least three terrorists are dead and approximately 9 others were injured in a targeted assassination by the Israeli Air Force in Gaza.

A missile pulverized the car in which the terrorists were traveling in the a-Nasser neighborhood of Gaza City. The Saturday night air strike followed a 24 hour period in which nearly 100 rockets and missiles were fired at Israeli civilians.

In a second air strike, a 12-story building in the Tel al-Hawa neighborhood collapsed, sending a cloud of black smoke and flames spiraling into the sky.

Residents of the building were warned to leave the building, which served as a base for Hamas operations, prior to the attack. IAF pilots fired a warning dud at the roof of the 48-unit building before the strike, reminding occupants to leave, according to police.

Two missiles blew up the building about five minutes later, which collapsed under the explosion.

Despite the warnings, at least 10 people were wounded according to local sources, including four children.

Over the course of the day, the IDF said it bombed some 60 terrorist targets throughout Gaza. Among those eliminated were concealed rocket launchers, weapons caches and terrorist operations facilities.

Terrorists rained rockets and missiles of varying ranges across the Israel throughout the day and into the night on Saturday. At around 10:30 pm, a missile reached as far north as Acco. No one was physically injured and no property damage was reported.

On Friday, a 4-year-old boy died when he didn’t make it to shelter in time to avoid mortar shelling by Gaza terrorists aimed at the Israeli border town of Nahal Oz.

IDF Officer Reports from the Gaza Front (Video)

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

Hamas terrorists “shot at us from mosques, schools and of course from civilian houses,” reports Lt. Adam Landau.

“In the end, if they shoot at you from a mosque, as difficult as it is, you don’t have an option…. And it’s not easy to shoot at a mosque. It’s important for a lot of people. It’s like a synagogue, but you get in a situation where you have to return fire to the mosques because that is where the terrorists are firing from.

You see a family’s house, and you see the clothing hanging outside [and] girls’ dresses waving in the wind, and behind all of this is a terrorist holding an AK-47 shooting at you.

You see how Hamas exploits children… We started to look for a terrorist who we knew was in a specific house. Suddenly, a small boy appeared. The terrorist grabbed him and escaped with him. Just because a terrorist enter a civilian does not give him immunity. On the other hand, we have to think very carefully before we act because no one wants to injure innocent civilians, especially women and children. It makes it very difficult to complete your goal of eliminating a terrorists because he is hugging a small child…It is not our decision. The terrorists took the decision and put it in hour hands.
