Israel Hits Back Hard: 160 Overnight Gaza Attacks

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

The Israel Defense Forces were busy overnight Tuesday, having launched more than 160 attacks during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza.

Israeli air force, navy forces and intelligence personnel combined efforts to attack terrorist targets throughout the region from sundown to dawn.

At least 120 hidden rocket launchers and 10 homes of senior Hamas commanders were destroyed, IDF sources said. Included were the homes of the Izz a-Din al-Qassam military wing regional squads in Khan Yunis and Rafiah.

In addition, the Hamas ‘Interior Security Ministry’ and a “navy’ outpost as well as various smuggling tunnels near Rafiah.

Local sources said that 24 residents were killed but it is not clear how many were terrorists; many are “protected” by the human shields with whom they insist on hiding as they launch their attacks, even using their own children.

Since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge Monday night, the IDF has launched some 435 attacks on the region.

The Iron Dome anti-missile system thus far has intercepted more than 45 long-range missiles fired at Israel from Gaza, at a cost of some $50,000 for each interceptor that is launched to neutralize the terrorist missile fired at an Israeli civilian population.

Gazan Terror Tunnel Into Kibbutz Discovered

Sunday, October 13th, 2013

The IDF discovered a 1.5 mile long terror tunnel that led from Gaza to Kibbutz Ein Hashlosha. The tunnel was discovered on Wednesday, but  the IDF censor only permitted publication of the find on Sunday.

The tunnel was a complex structure branching out in multiple directions,with multiple entry and egress points. It was laden with explosives and other surprises.

It is clear to the IDF that this tunnel was designed for kidnappings and a major terror attack.

The IDF has uncovered several tunnels leading from Gaza to nearby Jewish communities, over the past few years.

Recently, the IDF has begun a plan to reduce the military presence along the Gaza border as well as take away the armored vehicles belonging to the local town security units, based on, apparently incorrect assessments, that the threat level from Gaza has diminished.

A Gazan Arab was killed a few weeks ago as he tried to infiltrate into Israel across the fence.

IAF Drone Kills Additional Gaza Terrorists Sunday Morning

Sunday, October 14th, 2012

Following multiple rockets launched overnight from Gaza at Israel, Palestinians are reporting that an IAF drone took out a Gazan rocket team that was about to prepare yet another rocket launch at Israel. At least one member of the rocket team was killed. The team were east of Khan Yunis in south Gaza at the time.

The IDF has not identified what type of aircraft was used in the operation.

The attacks on the rocket crews may be part of what appears to be a new IDF policy to respond to all rocket attacks.

The IDF has begun saying,

“The IDF will not accept any attempts to attack the citizens of Israel, and will continue to operate against any operative that attempts to terrorize the State of Israel. Hamas is considered to be the address and responsibility is on them.”

Citizens of Israel’s south, in towns near Gaza, have been told to stay within 15 seconds of a bomb shelter this morning.
