The IDF press service issued a statement on the ground operation in the Gaza Strip

One of the commanders of the Hamas military wing of the al-Qassam Brigades, Ayman Nofal, actually died. This happened as a result of an Israeli Defense Forces strike on the Gaza Strip.

This was reported in the movement’s Telegram channel.

Commander Ayman Nofal "Abu Ahmed", commander of the central brigade of Hamas's combat wing, was killed in a barbaric Zionist attack targeting the Al-Bureij camp in the central Gaza Strip.

- said in a publication.

Also today, the press service of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) made a statement on the ground operation in the Gaza Strip. It says whether the Israeli military is ready for it and whether they will start it. The statement was made at a briefing by IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Richard Hecht.

He said that the command has not yet decided whether it will send ground units into Gaza.

We haven't said yet what they will be, maybe something else

- said Hecht, speaking about the preparation of the military for new stages of hostilities.

At this time, the Israeli army continues bombing the south of the Gaza Strip. Among other things, the city of Khan Yunis is being hit. It is noteworthy that the Israeli authorities recommended that Palestinian refugees evacuate in the direction of this settlement.

As the agency told reporters TASS Palestinian Ambassador in Moscow Abdel Hafiz Nofal, three thousand people have already died in the Gaza Strip to date, and another 11 thousand have been injured. Israel reports about 1400 dead on its side. To date, approximately 3,5 thousand Israelis have been wounded.

    Israel is a country where everything is allowed in the Western world. Yes, this time they were attacked. But what have they been doing all this time with the Palestinian people? Their atrocities, sadism and extreme cruelty were hidden, the media ignored it. Dozens of Palestinians, including children, were killed every day. And this was considered normal. Anything - you can’t touch it! He’s a Jew! - Holocaust. This is well written in the book "The Holocaust Industry". It is unfortunate that the Jews turned into their tormentors and executioners, becoming analogues of Hitler's Reich. Oh, Israel...

      Of course, there are questions for Jews, and quite a few. But with “Dozens of Palestinians, including children, were killed every day,” you certainly went overboard.

      It’s okay that Hamas and Russians were killed in a complete attack. And Russians should support Palestine? Are You Normal ?

        There were no Russians there. All this is Zion-Gebels propaganda. If anyone was there, it was only Jewish relocants with Russian passports, who had nothing to do with the Russians.

          That is, non-Russians with a Russian passport can be killed?

        Is it okay that a thousand instructors from Israel trained the Ukrainian fascists to kill Russians until recently? This doesn't seem to bother you.

      About the atrocities - I agree on the part of Israel over all decades. But I’ll argue about “attacked”. This performance (where there are a lot of questions) was sponsored and organized by MI6 Great Britain (they trained Hamas), and Israel itself was well aware of and contributed to this provocation. They needed it like air to bomb and finally drive the Palestinians out of their lands.
      A magnificent conspiracy between the Israeli leadership and Hamas. Therefore, Hamas did not capture the airfields and did not bomb them (although they were nearby) - they did not touch the planes at all!!!!! And they rushed to kill civilians for the sake of a picture for the West. And the planes are needed to bomb Gaza, so Hamas didn’t touch them.

    It will be a disaster if the government screws up and does not go to destroy Hamas.

      It’s true that Hamas is one thing and the rest of the people of Palestine are another. And you can be understood and they need to be understood too. But it’s up to you to decide.

      And if it goes ahead (there will be a ground operation with many casualties), then it will also be a disaster, including for Israel.

      Of course it will.
      Unfortunately, but: "....periodically repeated this formula starting from 2006. I will quote from 2012: “The solution to the Gaza problem in its current form is re-occupation. Which will immediately automatically create the Gaza problem in a different form. So far the government does not have the political will to carry out this solution and prefers the problem in its current form, it will be limited to periodic half-measures: "Cast Lead", "Pillar of Cloud", "Scorched Iron" and "Filthy Broom."
      We see the result. As I have also said many times: “if you don’t want to deal with Gaza’s sewerage, it will deal with you.”

      The ideal for Israel, IMHO, would be a friendly government in Gaza with unlimited powers to shoot dissenters, and an Arab government at the same time.
      But the question is - after South Lebanon, who will agree to this job?!

      By the way, does the power outage in southern Gaza seem to have ended?

    If the IDF is not quite there yet, then we will learn about the beginning and form of the operation after the fact. But I think there is no fundamental decision for the assault yet. People in Israel are thirsty for revenge, and the leadership is thinking about how to make sure that the seven keep them, otherwise they will tear everyone apart. And this is not an accusation of cowardice, this is an understanding of the difficulties of the assault, the reaction of enemies in the region and... I think a sober calculation of material resources, both our own and our allies

    Hmm, yes, the liquid incomprehensible ones do nothing but stupidly impede the movement of their own attack aircraft with their own forces. So how are they going to clear the ruins without the support of technology? The equipment simply won’t get through there, which means you’ll have to lay down a bunch of infantry while they support the work of the engineers to clear the paths for the advance of the equipment. And the equipment will be an excellent target during forced standing.

    Apparently, it is time for the Israeli government to look for Moses. You have to be branded idiots to agree to such a scam. The fact that the puppeteers are sitting in Washington is understandable. The fact that the Jews wanted the whole land of Palestine, too. But not to understand that over the past 30 years everything on the planet has changed a little (!), you have to be a bit of an idiot. Well, a copper (or iron) snake will help you. Damn, history doesn't teach us anything. Aaron, we'll have to go back soon. Where? No one is waiting for you anywhere. In my old age, I realized one thing - you Jews are wise people. Wise people in assessing material values, subject to unconditional gesheft. As for politics, you are worse than the fascists. I wouldn’t be surprised if after the end of the SVO it turns out that your people took part in everything. Although there is already information that more than a thousand (!) “specialists” have left since the beginning of the events in GAZA. Everything according to Lavrov...

    If you storm Gaza, there may be an oil embargo, and this is the last thing the United States needs in this situation.

    I’m wondering if they climb, will Iran get involved?
    If so, is it possible to exchange nuclear bombs?
