Israel Bombs Gaza In Response To Incendiary Balloons Lighting Open Fields On Fire

Illustrative image, click to see full-size. A fireball lights up the night sky above buildings near Khan Younis in southern Gaza, as IDF planes hit a Hamas site in the Palestinian enclave, on June 17, 2021.

In the early hours of July 2nd, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) struck an alleged Hamas ‘weapons manufacturing site’ in Gaza, in response to alleged incendiary balloons being launched toward Israeli territory.

The IDF said the site was used by Hamas to develop and build weapons.

“The strike was carried out in response to the arson balloon attacks on Israeli territory. The IDF will respond with determination against all terror attempts from the Gaza Strip,” the army said.

The incendiary balloons launched from Gaza on July 1st sparked four fires near Israeli towns along the southern border, breaking more than two weeks of quiet since the last wave of arson attacks.

Most of the fires were small and not dangerous, according to the Fire and Rescue Services, which said that its respondents quickly managed to gain control of the blazes in the Eshkol Regional Council before significant damage was caused.

In June, arson balloons launched by Hamas operatives caused some 20 fires in Israeli communities in the Gaza periphery. IDF planes struck a wide range of Hamas military targets throughout the Strip, responding to the attacks in less than a day.

June’s arson balloons and counterstrikes were the first since the 11-day war that Israel fought against Gaza terror groups in May. They took place amid Israel’s decision to allow far-right activists to proceed with flag march through the Old City of Jerusalem, which Palestinian groups branded as a provocation.

According to Israeli media, the response by the new government led by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett indicated a shift in policy from the previous one, which did not always respond to arson balloon attacks with airstrikes (it only responded in roughly 99% of occasions). Or it allegedly “wouldn’t do so as quickly or as forcibly, in order to avoid escalation along the southern border.”

Hamas has used the launching of incendiary devices in order to keep pressure on Israel to move along with reconstruction efforts in the Strip.

This is also likely in protest of the 31 new settlement construction projects that the Israeli government approved and plans to implement.

How many times have the zionist swine attacked their own “settlers” to justify violence against the Palestinian people?


Nazis versus Goatmen

Mormon firefighters from the Midwest and Utah USA are really doing a great job putting out the fires and cheering on total destruction of Palestine! While Palestinians have lost the struggle due to medieval mentality the American Jews and Christians have out done themselves as the perfect Nazis.


Israel does not have a ‘right to exist”, because Israel is born of genocide and war crimes against the Indigenous People of PALESTINE. ISRAEL brags about that in their bible. To recognize their false claim today is to validate crimes against humanity. The Palestinians were in Palestine for THOUSANDS of years before israel was thought of.
The “STAR of DEATH” represents the ORIGINAL “nazis”, the perpetrators and braggarts of Humanity’s first SHOAH: FUNNY that everything they claim the nazis did is an EXACT COPY of what they brag about doing to the ORIGINAL Palestinians.

Jews SELF-anointed “The CHOSEN People of GOD”
Nazis SELF-anointed “The CHOSEN People of GENETICS”.
TODAY Israel states that it is creating “A PURE Jewish State”
YESTERDAY the Nazis were creating “A PURE German State”
And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword . . . (Joshua 6:21)
For modern day reinforcement of these “rules” research/google “the KINGS TORAH” is a good start.


why in the first hamas accepted a sease fire? They were on the win, the dome was hit and coud no more intercept mutch rokets. Zionists cried for stop. Now hamas could hit airfields, planes, everiting on occupied Palestine. Now zionists hit you everyday they wish.


The Palestinians love their children so much they would rather they die fighting for Freedom then live as SLAVES.”Better to DIE on your feet then live on your KNEES”
Isn’t that what the Jews are praised for doing at MASSADA? Oh! Only Jews are to be praised.
Massada and the Warsaw ghetto were child’s play next to the heroes of Concentration Camp Gaza.
The Palestinians huddle in their giant open-air prison, without an army, a navy, or an air force, and fight back with home-made rockets made out of plumbing supplies. Israel has the newest, most modern, unlimited weapons. PAID FOR BY US.
Israel’s actions belie its words. The facts speak much louder than the disdainful words and immoral lectures made repeatedly before this Council by the Israeli representative, all while his government and army kill and maim innocent children, women and men.
Not since Thermopylae has the world seen such courage in the face of overwhelming odds. The Palestinians have balls the US and Israel can only dream of, and the world will remember their courage against the tyrants, and the lies by the corporate media’s presstitutes and whorespondents trying to protect Israel’s aggression!
GAZA will rank with the Alamo, Thermopylae , the Battle of Stalingrad …..
LIVE FREE or DIE …….. ever hear that?

The Battle of FEMA-CAMP-GAZA …… FEMA-CAMP-GAZA …….. “conservatives” running around getting the vapors over FEMA CAMPS need to WAKE UP, GROW UP, and MAN UP. Who is training the GUARDS for those FEMA camps you all fear? ISRAEL.

How much abuse must a certain people take before their fight against it goes from “terrorism’ to “freedom fighting”. Calling Palestinians “terrorists” is the same thing as calling rape victims “rape causers”!
