Israel continues massive bombing of Gaza

49
Despite the efforts of Egypt to conclude a peace agreement between Israel and Hamas, armed confrontation is gaining momentum. On Wednesday, the Israeli Air Force continued to strike at the Gaza Strip, from which dozens of missiles were launched on the territory of the Jewish state. From midnight, 85 targets in the Palestinian enclave were destroyed: rocket launchers, tunnels, the houses of the leaders of Islamic Jihad and Hamas, as well as centers of terrorist activity, reports ITAR-TASS with reference to the press service of the Israel Defense Forces.

Israel continues massive bombing of Gaza


According to Palestinian health services, 15 people, including 5 children, were killed on Wednesday in strikes against the Gaza Strip. Since the beginning of the Israeli military operation "Frontier of Defense", about 220 Palestinians have died, and more than 1.5 thousands have been injured.

16 July it became known that the narrow security cabinet of Israel gave permission for an additional appeal 8 thousands of reservists in the event of a possible expansion of the military operation in the Gaza Strip.

In addition, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that rocket attacks on Israeli territory cannot be stopped only aviation blows.

"Solving the problem (rocket attacks) cannot be achieved only from the air," Lieberman said. “We must do everything possible to neutralize the ability of terrorists to attack us.”

It is worth noting that the human rights organization Human Rights Watch issued a statement alleging that "Israeli air strikes in the Gaza Strip were aimed at civilian targets and undoubtedly led to civilian casualties, which is contrary to the norms of warfare." The document notes that “Israel should stop illegal attacks that are not directed against military targets and may be intended to collectively punish or destroy the property of civilians. Intentional or unintentional attacks that violate the norms of warfare are war crimes. ”

            One handsome man from "Neturei Karta", and an unshaven macho from the planet of the apes - never regretted drooling, just give a reason to run into Israel. As if all the internal Iranian problems had already been solved (when I was at the helm). It is understandable - an invented enemy from the outside - perfectly distracts from everyday social problems, and it is easier to explain why people are shitty.

                As far as I know, "Neturei Karta" does not speak Hebrew, does not recognize the country, but as a result, they do not want to have Israeli citizenship, and, accordingly, do not have any social benefits, again - exactly the opposite - from the citizens - Arabs who do not disdain pulling out money from national insurance, but at the same time openly opposing the "feeding hand". I also heard that "Neturei Karta" does not even use the banknotes of the state, but make payments only in foreign currency. currency.

      And where are the US sanctions against ISRAEL .... I don’t see something so that the United States poked its nose here.

      According to Free Beacon, US Secretary of State John Kerry has repeatedly proposed immediately arriving in Cairo or Jerusalem to mediate ceasefire negotiations. However, Israel and Egypt reported that they did not need his services.

      It is noted that the refusal was extremely correct, but unequivocal. Nevertheless, the American representative contacted the Israeli and Egyptian leaders over and over again, offering their services. He was invariably answered that the parties had already established contact.

      However, this pressure has forced Cairo and Jerusalem to increase coordination. A manifestation of this was the first telephone conversation between the President of Egypt and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu since the election of Abd al-Fattah al-Sisi. During the conversation, the situation in Gaza was discussed.

      Egypt is interested in regaining the status of the most influential state in the Arab world as it was under Mubarak. Israel also hosts a powerful secular Egypt, in which Hamas is recognized as a terrorist group.

      Good afternoon, the professor is of the opinion that Israel was bred again
      Everyone laughed at the inefficiency of the Palestinian missiles, although in reality the goal of Hamas was completely different. Launching missiles in the direction of the south, center and north was a diversion operation designed to divert attention from real tasks: checking the defense of the economic capital of Tel Aviv, the Dimon Negev nuclear power plant, the power plant in Hadera, Ben Gurion International Airport and port facilities in Ashdod and Ashkelon. In addition, Hamas was able to modernize the guidance system for further use in real time. The drone shot down at Ashdod pursued exactly the same goals. He did not have to sow death and destruction, but rather approach the Israeli coast to record defense information. And he definitely managed to convey at least part of this information before he was destroyed. Now Iran and Hezbollah will be able to conduct a detailed analysis of the data collected and benefit from the so-called “defeat” of the Hamas militants, who in fact only fulfilled the task entrusted to them.

      Its kind of reconnaissance in battle.

    It was somehow overlooked in this news that Hamas twice officially rejected the truce proposed by the mediators. And then the Russian news comes out as usual everything is one-sided, Egypt is trying to reconcile, but Israel is bombing and bombing everything. It's a shame, comrades.
    Allowed to publish information on the prevention of a large-scale terrorist attack on the border with the Gaza Strip ...

    As reported by the war correspondent of the radio station "Kol Israel" Carmela Menashe, last night a large group of terrorists tried to penetrate into Israel through an underground tunnel.

    The soldiers of the Egoz special forces, who noticed the penetration attempt in time, took measures to neutralize the threat. 8 terrorists were killed by the fire of the special forces, the rest fled in the tunnel, which was struck from the air.

        Israel has chosen good tactics:
        1. Accuse of killing Hamas seminarians.
        2. Start searching the "alleged killers".
        3. Kill a Palestinian boy.
        After all, Palestine is not governed by a cautious GDP that does not give in to provocations. Naturally, the Palestinians succumbed to the provocation. Well, then everything follows the old scheme, having killed hundreds and maimed thousands of Palestinians, "peace-loving" Israel agreed to negotiations, while the "bloodthirsty" Palestinians do not want peace and continue to subject Israeli civilians to missile attacks. Who really killed the seminarians? It doesn't matter anymore. After all, Israel has achieved its goal.

Or do they have reasons for their hatred? The killing of hundreds of civilians unrelated to KhAMAZ is, in my opinion, a sufficient reason for hatred.

      When we shout that we need to act like Israel, we do not urge Putin to bomb Dnepropetrovsk or Kharkov - we want military units that are shelling Russian territory to be destroyed. We want to stop the killing of Russians in southern Ukraine. Just this. Offer the Russians to destroy these units, provided that civilians die along the way - and hardly anyone will agree. Why do you agree with this? And as a result, you fall into an enchanted circle - the more you hammer on the territory of Palestine, the more civilians die - the more Palestinians go to KhAMAZ. All the more hatred of Israel, and this hatred is already becoming too much. As a result, someday this hatred will break the borders and flood your country.

          When they put it in the middle of the city, respected Dan4eG, then, of course, civilians can suffer, there is nothing to do, I think this is obvious. And I was not talking about that. AND ABOUT THE TARGETED ARTILLERY DISASTER OF CITIES OF THE SOUTH-EAST OF UKRAINE. This is because the militias do not, right? As for the situation in the Gaza Strip, there, in my opinion, because of the impossibility of purposefully destroying Hamas militants, Israeli security forces are hitting the places of the ALLOWED KAMAZ activists. Each time killing civilians. Not watching any analogy? And do you agree with this way of dealing with militants? So, sooner or later, hatred will flood your country.

      It is terrible when civilians are bombed. When children die or live in fear. Terrible !!! I do not really know what the meaning of the Hamas movement is, I ask you to excuse me for that, but maybe we can help these Palestinians with work, organize some kind of industry so that unemployment does not become, and, consequently, a breeding ground for terrorism. After all, in Ukraine everything began when the very idea of ​​"labor" as the essence of human existence was destroyed. Or it is necessary to tell the whole world that the Palestinians are not capable of a peaceful life. A good example is when you drive through Israel among flowering gardens and green groves and suddenly find yourself in a naked, sultry desert, where everything is neglected and abandoned - these are the Palestinian lands.

        '' I am not very
        I know what is the point
        the movement of Hamas, '' - without this you will not understand why the continuation of your comment is nonsense.
