The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) thwarted the smuggling of 15,000-20,000 rockets into the Gaza Strip, outgoing IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot said on January 8 during a visit to the Eshkol Regional Council in southern Israel.

It remained unclear how the Israeli military chief of stawff does not know the real number of rockets, which were alelgedly attempted to be smuggled into  Gaza.

Furthermore, 2018 saw the most serious peak of violence between Israel and Palestinian armed groups in the Gaza Strip since the end of Operation Protective Edge in 2014. Accordng to the Israeli side, Palestinian armed groups fired over 1,000 rockets on Israeli targets.

Furthermore the IDF claims that it struck targets belonging to Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza a total of 865 times during the past year. These targets allegedly included headquarters, tunnels, military positions, technological facilities, training camps, weapons caches and Hamas’ naval arm.

    20,000 sugar-engine rockets? Maybe through terror tunnels… or transported with balloons?

    I’ll bet the IDF is eager to find some kind of final solution for the Palestinians. They’re clearly an existential threat to Israel. How did they ever get inside to begin with?

      In the empty minds of Kikes I understand Pave Way :)

    Thats not the only thing.
    IDF also thwarted tens of ICBM´s into PLO in Jerusalem, hundreds of WMD´s into Hezbollah in Lebanon and several S-400 batteries smuggled into Assad in Syria. You can sleep well due to IDF.

    not only are they thieving and murdering bastards, they lie as well and run a latter day concentration camp that lacks the extermination facility but the design is for a slow ethnic cleansing which the gullible eu
    wouldn’t detect if their life depended on it.

    opec ought to start a de-recognition drive against israel (and possibly pay for it as well) to get things started!

    Dear South Front: Some of your articles contain the sort of typos one would expect from writing on a smart phone with no spell check.

    15 to 20.000 rockets being stopped from smuggling in? Surely these can be put on display? At least the Syrian army regularly showcases the Western made weapons that have been smuggled in towards the Headchoppers.

    Oh, that’s right, Syria still adheres to the old paradigm, where you actually had to present evidence in order to make a case. Unlike in the West where you only have say you have a case. Foolish Syrians, all that time and effort wasted just to put those weapons on display.
