Inner Ring (Countries or terror groups that border Israel)
“Combat engineers return fire in third cross-border incident in 24 hours; earlier, patrol attacked with mortar shell.”
“An explosive device was thrown at IDF troops operating on the Israeli side of the Gaza border fence near the Gazan neighborhood of Sajaiya on Wednesday afternoon.”
Hamas is deliberately trying to provoke the IDF. Deterrence has finally ran out. Expect a conflict to erupt very soon.
“Security officials praise PA Security Forces taking more of the burden in policing their areas, even as PLO to discuss cutting coordination.”
What victory? Attacks still continue.
“Partial withdrawal from PA cities in Judea-Samaria may be a factor behind Tuesday night’s car ramming attack.”
Every time Israel withdrawals and relinquishes land they pay for it dearly. A lesson they refuse to learn.
“Three Israeli soldiers were injured on Tuesday evening when they were intentionally hit by a vehicle driven by a Palestinian terrorist at Haparsa intersection near the community of Dolev, west of Ramallah. One of the soldiers was seriously wounded and evacuated by helicopter to a hospital. The other two sustained moderate injuries. The terrorist was shot and killed after carrying out the attack. Large numbers of Israeli security forces quickly arrived on the scene.”
“UN Assistant Secretary-General Robert Piper claims that there is no proof that Hamas is taking advantage of UN-provided construction material for “military purposes,” the pro-Hamas Middle East Monitor reports.”
“Despite Piper’s protestations, Hamas seems to make far more progress on building tunnels than on repairing residential neighborhoods and public services.”
No proof? How about 250m tunnel from Gaza to Israel for the purposes of attacking Israeli civilians? Mr. Piper needs a lesson on how to lie better. UN doing what the UN does, propaganda machine for terrorists. #StopFundingTheUN
“Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly insisted that Israel will not change the Israeli-Jordanian-Palestinian status quo—in place now for nearly 25 years—of a ban on Jewish prayer at the Temple Mount, despite pressure from some members of his own political party and ministerial cabinet to do so.”
The current status quo is an injustice soon to be corrected by God.
Outer Ring (countries or terror groups that are close to but not bordering Israel)
“The Syrian ceasefire declared by the US and Russia early in the week expired Tuesday night at midnight and heavy battles restarted around the country. Syrian air force planes bombed rebel positions in the eastern suburbs of Damascus while heavy artillery bombed them from the ground. Dozens of people were killed in battles in the western part of the city of Aleppo between rebel fighters and Syrian army forces backed by Hizballah fighters. Western media reports said at least 40 Syrian soldiers and about 10 rebels were killed.”
“Jewish state gets permanent office at alliance’s HQ, in what expert says is ‘confidence-building measure’ with Ankara.”
The guy implanting the chip looks like horns are about to shoot out of his head. Seriously.
