Day 27 of ‘Operation Protective Edge’ – “We Are Keeping All Options for Action Open”

Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

The IDF has begun to partially withdraw troops from parts of the Gaza Strip. Having completed their specific missions, the forces are coming out of completed areas. The IDF is still continuing to complete its mission to destroy the terror tunnels. The IDF estimates it will complete the mission within the next day.

Over the past 24 hours, the IDF struck 153 terror targets in the Gaza Strip, including tunnels, weapon manufacturing and storage facilities, and command and control centers. Among the targets was a Hamas military wing facility that was used for research and development of weapon manufacturing located within the Islamic University.

Hamas was reportedly researching chemical weapons options.

In addition, weapon caches and Hamas command and training facilities concealed within five mosques were targeted.

PM Netanyahu said last night at a press conference that the IDF will continue its military campaign against Hamas in the Gaza Strip for as long as needed and with as much force as necessary. “From the beginning, we promised to return the quiet to Israel’s citizens and we will continue to act until that aim is achieved. We will take as much time as necessary, and will exert as much force as needed,” Netanyahu said. He further stressed that the IDF’s redeployment did not indicate an end to Operation Protective Edge and that the IDF would continue to operate “only on the basis of security considerations.” “I can’t tell you how it’s going to develop,” he said. “We are keeping all options for action open.” Last night a special committee led by the IDF Chief Rabbi announced the death of Lt. Hadar Goldin, 23, an infantry officer in the Givati Brigade who was killed in battle in the Gaza Strip on Friday. Medical, religious and other relevant factors were considered before making the official announcement. Lt. Goldin’s family was notified by Head of the IDF Personnel Directorate Maj. Gen. Orna Barbivai and Chief Military Rabbi Brig. Gen. Rafi Peretz. Minister of Defense Ya’alon visited the family as well. “Prior to the decision, all medical considerations, religious observances, as well as additional relevant issues were taken into consideration,” the IDF statement reads. As Goldin’s group was attacked, two other soldiers, Benaya Sarel and Liel Gidoni, were killed.

At the announcement, many of the hundreds rallying outside the Goldin home in a show of support for the family burst into tears on hearing the news.

Over the past 24 hours 86 rockets were fired at Israel, 58 rockets hit Israel and 6 were intercepted by the Iron Dome system.

Hamas has fired 3,127 rockets towards Israel since the beginning of Operation ‘Protective Edge’.

Following Abduction, PM Netanyahu Speaks with US Secretary of State John Kerry

Friday, August 1st, 2014

Released by Prime Minister’s Office:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this afternoon, spoke with US Secretary of State John Kerry and told him that despite his joint statement with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, according to which assurances had been received from Hamas and the other terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip regarding a ceasefire from 08:00 this morning, the Palestinians had unilaterally and grossly violated the humanitarian ceasefire and attacked our soldiers after 09:00.

Young Girl Becomes Hamas Human Shield Type 3

Monday, July 21st, 2014

A young girl may be the latest variant in the Hamas terrorist suicide show. Israeli soldiers in the Egoz unit were allegedly faced with the new human shield tactic on Monday morning in Gaza.

In an unconfirmed report conveyed by a source connected with someone in the unit, a young girl approached the group of soldiers. As she drew closer, the troops suddenly realized she was wearing a pack of explosives with which to blow herself up among the soldiers.

They shot and killed her on the spot, according to the source, eliminating the threat.

Israeli intelligence has repeatedly warned that Hamas is using all types of threats against IDF soldiers and Israeli civilians at this point. Caution is advised in all areas, given the current situation, and it is important to follow the instructions of Home Front Command.

From a distance, the soldiers made the 20 year old Arab man stop and remove his coat, at which point they saw that the inside of his jacket was lines with bombs.

They made him strip down, and demolition experts blew up the bombs.

The IDF is now interrogating the man, who is from the Shechem area, to confirm whether he was to be the suicide bomber, or if he was trying to smuggle the bomb to someone else.

Alon Platoon commander Shlomi Yosef told Tazpit that the professionalism and awareness of the Border Police soldiers on site, in identifying and capturing the suicide belt prevented a major attack.

TIMELINE:

11:00 AM An Arab man wearing a coat in today’s scorching 95 degree Fahrenheit weather was spotted approaching the Tapuach junction in the Shomron.

A Border Police unit on the site spotted and stopped the man from a distance, where he was told to lie down on the road and remove his outer clothing.

The army suspects he is wearing a suicide belt under his clothing.

The army sent demolitions experts to the site, and has moved an armored bus between the suspect and everyone else in the area.

11:05 AM The army blew up the man’s clothing, and from the amount of smoke that came out, witnesses on site say it appears it was a bomb.

11:28 AM The junction is now open for traffic.

The Tapuach Junction has been the site of a number of terror attacks.
