Map Update: Escalation In Gaza Strip On November 11-12, 2018

The situation in the Gaza Strip is once again escalating after the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) assasinated Nur Barake, a deputy commander of an elite unit of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, in the town of Khan Yunis. The assasination triggered a series of clashes between Palestinian fighters and IDF troops, who called airstrikes to support their retreat.

An IDF spokesperson claimed that the “force acted as part of the IDF’s efforts to preserve Israel’s superiority over its enemies in a wide range of areas. The night force carried out a lengthy operation during which it encountered a very complex reality”. The spokesperson also said that the IDF troops acted “heroically”.

According to different sources, a total of 5-7 Palestinians, including members of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, was killed in the clashes. The IDF said that one IDF servicemember was killed and another one was injured. In response to the assasination, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades launched at least 17 rockets at targets in southern Israel.

Summing up the recent developments, it looks that the IDF operation went not as it had been planned. This caused a wave of political and media hysteria in Israel.

Israeli Minister of Science Technology and Space Ofir Akunis [Likud] stated that Israel has to return to the policy of targeted strikes.

“Hamas is a cruel terror group [which] aims to destroy the state of Israel,” he said, “it must be hurt, including using targeted strikes against the heads of the snake.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is also going to hold security consultations on Gaza. The Israeli top military and political leadership will once again discuss a possible large-scale military action in the region. Over the past few weeks, the IDF has deployed multiple battle tanks and other military equipment near the contact line with Gaza.

    It was obviously an unprovoked provocation on the part of the evil Jews. Judaism should be outlawed worldwide as the evil pedophile mass rape cult that it is. The synagogues and yeshivas closed and demolished, and Israel and Jews made extinct.

      bravo bravo bravo at least 1 more human that speaks the truth…..
      ps. jesus said the same…..

      the jews are satanic, pure evil..always was, always are always will be

        Jesus dint say that and the arabs from Gaza more or less was jews mixted up with phalestines, which alsi were a kind of jews.

        More like family tradtions. Jesus did not say that.

        He asked for more acceptance among each others and the poor ones incl. Maria Magdalena being a prostitute should not be punished because they were poor.

        Jesus said a lot of things even much of it seemes to be myths.

        At the time of Jesus the area was under a very blody Jewish King named Herodes, which killed even all his own family in Stalin mode. Above him was the Romans, which were very hard ones being hard and violent dominaters themselves.

        Thats the context, where Jesus and fx Johannes the Bapthiser(burried in Damaskus and having an own grave there) was. If anything, they uprised in a peacefull way and died for it.

        Like most of Yours today so many did not know what peace was. When the muslims 600 years or more took over an important change was good periods having a lot of peace or at least being not enemies.

        And Your Ottomans collapsed in exact the same way as the Roman Konstantinople did. So You certainly regain the worst of Your own old roots. It seemes parts of the jews behave more and more like You too.

        You are same origin comming from Sem, Noah and Methusalem like some mountain arabs stil behaving as some strange emmigrants on a boat. :)

          Be silent, vile hasbara rat-fink.

          • Jens Holm

            If I look at Your carrots below arab´s and jews are exact them same. By Noah and Sem You are Mountain Arabs all of You.

            Jews today seemes as the more bright ones because they learn to ask questions in their schools, they educate themselves, let skills grow, reward hard work as well.

            Thats why they become rich. They are not as oil is only for lamps and cars can be improved by better hay.

            I do like sekular jews very much. They mainly are as us.

    • Jens Holm

      Well, I see that provoked and unprovoked has been there sonce 1948 and the last chace was when Arafat and Rabin were killed.

      Making it into, what Your brain has about it dont improve any of the.

  • You can call me Al

    Swine.

    • Jens Holm

      We and UN should send only send swine as food aid to kinds like You. But our belowed swine wont.

  • Rob

    All communities come together and join hands with Russia and China and remove all creators and supporters of Israel, Daesh, Al-Qaeda, PKK etc. As much these terrorist organizations are bad so much their creators and supporters are also bad.

  • Jens Holm

    And the Israelians should accept ransom missiles ??? No way.

    • Gary Sellars

      How about the Zio trash stop assassinating Palestinian defence personnel? Then a rocket barrage (as a retaliatory measure) would not be needed.

      Stupid hasbarat prick…

      • Jens Holm

        I have 99,999% given up any solutions there. I was not even born, when things were decided.

        You are a very good representaive for it and could be a jew there too: Its not my fault, but everybody elses.

        UN has been feeding all the arabs there for billions waiting for You and Them should negosiate You into some future.

        And by that I becomes a hasbarak as well. Why should I pay as much as one single danish kroner to people of Your kind. Should I support Israelians in stead. I do that as little as possible, but I will never allow them to be thrown out and leave, for they have nowhere else to go.

    How do hamas with slingshots and kites to destroy Israel is also a mystery because the Nazi state of apartheid in a few months has already killed 200 people disarmed and wounded and disabled 20,000.
