Israel Struck Targets In Gaza, Palestinian Factions Responded With Anti-Aircraft Missiles (Videos, Photos)

Early on January 2, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) struck several targets in the Palestinian Gaza Strip in response to the recent rocket attack on the Israeli capital, Tel Aviv.

“Overnight, fighter jets, helicopters, and tanks struck a rocket manufacturing site and military posts belonging to the Hamas terror organization,” the IDF said in a statement.

The rocket attack, which took place on January 1, was reportedly carried out in support of Palestinian detainee Hisham Abu Hawash, who has been on a hunger strike for more than 140 days now. Abu Hawash, who is currently in a critical health condition, is protesting against his administrative detention.

No faction has claimed responsibility for the rocket attack as of yet. Nevertheless, the IDF held the Hamas Movement, the de-facto ruler of the Gaza Strip, responsible for the attack.

Palestinian media sources said that the Israeli strikes targeted a base and three observation posts of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, in southern and northern parts of the Gaza Strip. No casualties were reported.

During the strikes, Palestinian fighters targeted Israeli helicopters with two Soviet-made 9K32 Strela-2 MANPADs [man-portable air-defense system] and heavy machine guns. However, no hits were reported.

Later on, Palestinian fighters fired several rockets over the sea as a part of a live-fire test that was apparently meant as a warning to the IDF.

The situation in Gaza may escalate further in the upcoming days as the issue of Abu Hawash is yet to be resolved. Gaza factions appear to be willing to support the cause of the detainee at all costs. Meanwhile, Egypt is making efforts to de-escalate the situation in the Palestinian enclave.

Corrupt Shithole of Ukropisstan

Things are getting desperate for the child murderers, Israel will not exist in five years time.

Dicksonrp

Too long. Too long

IMHO

And yet again Israel does what it wants and all you see is a feeble unproductive response.

It’s aggrivating as hell.

All of you who make out like Israel and the U.S. are on their last leg are just satiating your own desires.

When we see a real productive response then we can talk about a shift in power.

If Hamas uses its power now their element of surprise will be gone when Hamas, Iran and Hezbollah all team up at the same time. Hamas has good stuff waiting to be used, they’re just waiting to attack together

ATTILA

but but but when ?

Dicksonrp

🤔🤔 how long again…when all Palestine men are killed or imprisoned and none available to fight?

The country was not created to protect the Jewish people, but merely as a Power Apparatus for the Freemasons. They have no morality and no ethic whatsoever and they never will, for they do not worship God of the Old Testament and Torah, but Lucifer.
This will never end the Jewish People wake up to the enormous Deceit played upon them.
Vladimir Zelenko is Aware , listen to him.

The Jewish Orthodox sect Neteurei Karta has been aware for decades too but no one listens to them. To boot, they are considered by most Israeli swine as non-Jews and domestic terrorists!!!!!! Oh how those who defy and defile the Creator will weep and wallow in sorrow when the imminent Judgement arrives.

Exactly…but they are the ONLY TRUE JEWISH TRIBES

OK, so I know Hamas did not have access to man pads in the past. I don’t want hear a peep from people say that they did not hit. cause give enough of them and they will.

I know IDF has focused a lot of effort into stopping the transfer of weapons and they have failed a long before this point back when ATGMs ended up the Hamas hands.

I’m sure as hell hope the IDF cuts the pay of the intelligence services because it looks like they never get any fucking work. They are bunch of lazy morons.

Dicksonrp

Fucking Jew arse licker
