Lebanon – 6 Rockets Almost Landed in Israel

Friday, July 11th, 2014

Lebanon’s Daily Star reports that Lebanese terrorists planned to launch 6 rockets into Israel, but only one of them managed to land in Israel.

Lebanese Army Intelligence and UNIFIL soldiers found traces of 6 rockets 2 kilometers from the border with Israel.

Of the four launched at Israel, two apparently landed short, in Lebanon, while one exploded at launch, injuring the terrorist trying to launch it. Blood and a ripped shoe were found at the site.

The Lebanese Army defused the remaining two 107mm Grad rockets that were set to go off.

Lebanon’s Daily Star reports that Israel fired 25 artillery shells in response, causing no casualties.

UNIFIL is also looking into the incident.

Israel believes the attack came from an independent terror group, and not Hezbollah.

When Lawyers Run the War, You Can’t Win

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

PM Netanyahu told the Foreign Affair and Defense Committee in a meeting yesterday that the lawyers won’t allow Israel to shut off the water and electricity to Gaza.

He said this in response to a request by the committee chairman, Minister Ze’ev Elkin, for Israel to take a more harsh response against Gaza, including shutting off the water and electricity.

Netanyahu said he will bomb them a little harder.

We’re glad the lawyers permit that.

Still, one wonders, if we moved the lawyers to Sderot, would they come up with a different legal opinion?

Hamas Psychobabble: “Start Counting the Number of Coffins You’ll Need”

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reports that Hamas has broadcasted on their Al-Aqsa TV numerous videos in Hebrew in the past days in an attempt at psychological warfare against Israel, or at least in an attempt to make its own people think it is successfully intimidating Israel.

The videos include threats in broken Hebrew to return to suicide bombings, stabbings and other terror attacks against Israelis. Hamas also falsely claimed to have hit the Israeli Knesset and made it “tremble” once, and threatened to do it again.

The clips include threats such as: “Zionists, wait and see terror attacks, stabbing everywhere. Wait for suicide attacks on every bus, café and street. Wait for the rage and for revenge for Gaza, wait for the flames of the West Bank, inside you,” or “Zionists, [we] can reach you above ground and below it. So start counting the number of coffins you’ll need in these months,” and “Zionists, do you still remember the rockets that made Tel-Aviv and the Israeli Parliament tremble? We just wanted to tell you that we have thousands of them.”

As Hamas keeps launching rockets against Israel, and as Israel’s Operation ‘Protective Edge’ responds by targeting Hamas’ terror infrastructure, Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah movement is openly supporting Hamas and has produced their own videos in Hebrew.

PMW has documented threats made by Fatah on social media, and today Fatah posted two videos threatening Israelis:

“A message to the Israeli government and the Israeli people: Death will reach you from the south to the north. Flee our country and you won’t die. The KN-103 rocket is on its way toward you.”

Operation ‘Protective Edge’ Enters its Third Day

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

JERUSALEM – Gazan terrorists continued to fire rockets at Israeli civilian targets throughout the night.

Since midnight, 8 rockets have been fired at Israel by Hamas terrorists and the IDF has hit 54 terror targets in the Gaza Strip. In the past 24 hours, more than 105 rockets were launched from Gaza towards Israel. In response to the continued rocket fire, the IDF struck 326 targets across the Gaza Strip including concealed rocket launchers, terror tunnels, training bases, military compounds, weapons storage and manufacturing facilities, and additional sites utilized as control centers by senior Hamas terrorists.

For the second night in a row, Hamas tried to send terrorists into Kibbutz Zikim, via the sea. The terrorists were again spotted by the IDF. Both terrorists were killed. No IDF soldiers were injured in the attack.

The IDF is currently focusing its efforts on destroying the terror infrastructure in Gaza from the air and targeting terrorist leaders and commanders. The IAF targeted the homes of several Hamas commanders yesterday who used their homes as terror command centers. Early this morning, the IDF targeted three Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorists who were involved in the manufacturing of medium-range rockets. Accurate hits were registered. Hamas has resorted again to using human shields to protect their infrastructure. The population seems to be gladly cooperating with them, and this has caused the IDF to abort missions. This further boosts the number of civilian casualties in Gaza. The IDf has stated it is doing its outmost to avoid such assurances.

Reports of a possible IDF incursion into Gaza are intensifying. Israel is deploying a third infantry brigade alongside two others already on the border and is continuing to call up more reserves, army spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Peter Lerner said in a briefing.
Since the start of Operation ‘Protective Edge’, over 360 rockets have been fired towards Israel and the IDF has targeted approximately 780 targets, with both naval and aerial capabilities.
