Israel Kicks Off Military Operation In Gaza, Kills Senior Islamic Jihad Leader (Videos)

On August 5, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) kicked off a surprise military operation against the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) in the Gaza Strip.

In a brief statement, the IDF said that the operation, codenamed “Breaking Dawn,” comes as a response to recent threats by the PIJ. The Palestinian faction made many threats to Israel in the recent weeks following a series of raids by Israeli forces that targeted its members and leaders in the West Bank’s Jenin refugee camp.

Operation Breaking Dawn began with a series of strikes that hit a number of civilian and military targets, including an apartment in the Palestine residential tower in the city center of Gaza.

The strikes claimed the life of Tayseer Jabari, the commander of PIJ’s military wing, the al-Quds Brigades, in Gaza’s northern sector. A spokesman of the IDF claimed that the head of the al-Quds Brigades’ anti-tank units was also killed in the strikes along with 10-20 other members of the factions. However, this is yet to be confirmed by the PIJ.

The Health Ministry in Gaza said that a total of eight people, including a five-year-old girl, were killed and at least 44 others were wounded in the Israeli strikes.

In his first response to the IDF operation, PIJ Secretary-General Ziyad al-Nakhalah vowed to attack the Israeli capital, Tel Aviv, with rockets.

“There are no red lines for this battle, and I declare before the Palestinian people that Tel Aviv will be under the strikes of the resistance’s rockets,” the Palestinian leader said in a phone call from Iran with the Lebanese al-Mayadeen TV.

The Hamas Movement, the de-facto ruler of Gaza, said that Israel will pay the price for its attack on PIJ, warning that all “resistance” factions will fight side by side to defend the Palestinian enclave and its people.

The IDF have been preparing for Operation Breaking Dawn for around a week. In the last few days, large forces were deployed around Gaza. Security measures at nearby Israeli settlements were also tightened.

Operation Breaking Dawn is apparently meant to deter all of Gaza factions, not just the PIJ. The Palestinian response to the operation will likely spark a large-scale military confrontation with the IDF, similar to what happened summer of last year.

Like shooting fish in a barrel. The brave criminals in the IDF doing what they are good at – bombing civilian targets and killing civilians. Who is going to sanction Israel? Why are the Israeli teams and athletes allowed to participate in sporting events?

No sanctions for israel. Just teach them a lesson. If they kill palestinian children, kill their children. If they target commanders, kill their generals. thats all. Zionists only understand the lesson of force

Sanctions..? Oh please don’t pretend not knowing the score.. The chosenites would be presented as victims of Islamic extremism once more by the msm including in social media platforms with US show of sympathy by adding several billions more to its already allocated multibillion aid fund to IDF. the money collected from american hardworking taxpayers which is sufficient to solve social problems being wasted that feeds predatory atrocities.

FIVE year old girl killed and other children injured yet the Zionists supply arms to Ukraine and support Ukraine. This Evil Western Empire supports child killers -defends them -refuses to criticise Zionism – well I criticize it !!! No morals- no conscious-EVIL-EVIL people – sub-human Talmudic followers.

They’re all busy right now organising a large international LGBTQFUCK parade soon to take place in the capital Washington DC.

Collateral damage? What’s that?

The isreali apartheid regime has been waiting for an excuse to resume attacks on Palestinians, and the PIJ gave it to them. Lesson learned for next time.

The isreali apartheid regime isn’t satisfied with throwing people off their land. Like all good nazis, they want to exterminate what’s left of the population. The irony is lost on this apartheid regime.

IDF show themselves bombing civilian apartments and yet there’s no western outrage? I’m truly shocked /s. Russia doesn’t do this, and yet it is labelled “brutal” and “barbaric”.

The US regime will award the kosher way of mass murdering IDF with several billion dollars more in addition to the previously allocated multi billion aid package to Israel.
