On May 19, the Israeli Air Force announced that its fighter jets had carried out a series of airstrikes on the Hamas Movement’s “Metro” tunnel network in the Gaza Strip.

According to the Air Force, 40 underground targets in Khan Yunis and Rafah in the southern part of the Gaza Strip were targeted by 52 fighter jets within 25 minutes.

“The strikes combined a number of elements: Surface-to-Surface targets, underground targets, command and control centers, and Hamas posts,” the air force said in a statement.

The targets of the recent wave of Israeli airstrikes on Gaza included:

  • a weapons depot located in the Hamas internal security headquarters in Khan Yunis;
  • a military infrastructure located in the residences of two Hamas commanders;
  • the Hamas command and control center in Rafah.

Israeli fighter jets also bombed targets of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, including a rocket situation room, facilities for surface-to-surface array located in operational apartments, and a command room used to fire rockets.

While Israel claims that its strikes are only targeting armed factions in the Gaza Strip, the civilian death toll in Gaza continue to rise.

According a new statement by the Palestinian Heath Ministry, Israeli strikes on Gaza have killed 219 people, including 63 children, so far. More than 1,500 others were injured.

Despite the high intensity and precision of Israeli strikes on Gaza, Palestinian factions are still launching rockets from the enclave. So far, more than 4,000 rockets were launched. A total of 11 people in Israel were killed.

Several recent reports suggest that Israel and Palestinian factions are approaching a ceasefire. Officials from the two sides are yet to confirm this.

has hezbollah or IRGC been taken out? or are they sleeping? jesus christ

Arch Bungle

Hezbollah can only attack when the Lebanese civilian population calls for intervention.

Realising that an attack on israel will result in israelis punishing lebanese civilians, they do not want deaths among the population, as it will result in withdrawal of popular support by the Lebanese.

However, if there are large scale support from the Lebanese civilian population they will attack.

So, the decision lies with the people of Lebanon, not with Hassan Nasrallah or Hezbollah. IF the Lebanese want to throw the Palestinians under the bus, then that is their decision.

The IRGC cannot attack openly as it will result in NATO getting involved, that would put Palestinians at greater risk.

Therefore they are assisting by providing covert weapons to Hamas.

(Aside from that, Hamas leadership is currently negotiating assistance directly with Ali Khamenei as we speak … https://english.almanar.com.lb/1345643)

They are not stupid to be forced into full war because of Hamas. Especially because Hamas is heavily infiltrated, perhaps even completely controlled by Israel. How do you think they know about these tunnels?

Arch Bungle

LOL! Several billion dollars of high tech bunker busters wasted on sewage conduits and aquifer lines.

And yet the missiles keep coming without cease.

Propaganda, folks.

Pro USA

Israeli weapons are the best

Arch Bungle

The best missile shield in the world, tested against the worst rockets in the world.

Definitely better than american weapons, they are the worst. After the Gulf war Israelis realized that Patriots are complete and absolute garbage so we made our own systems (paid by american taxpayers). We only use US weapons because they are free.
