More Rockets Fired At Israel Following Escalation In The Gaza Strip

Click to see full-size image

On February 24th, around midday rockets were fired at Israeli territory from Gaza, as part of the latest escalation.

Six rockets were fired at southern Israel, five of which were intercepted, according to the Israeli military. There were no reports of any injuries.

The escalation began on the morning of February 23rd, when Israel Defense Forces (IDF) targeted 2 individuals, allegedly members of Islamic Jihad who were also allegedly attempting to plan an explosive device near the Gaza Strip fence.

The IDF soldiers opened fire and one of the individuals was hit.

Just hours later, rockets started being launched towards Israeli territory.

In response, the IDF struck a Islamic Jihad squad allegedly attempting to carry out a rocket strike, as well as other various targets in both Syria and Gaza.

In total, more than 20 rockets were fired from Gaza into southern Israel, causing some damage, but no casualties.

The Israeli military struck Palestinian Islamic Jihad targets, including weapons development and training facilities near Damascus.

The group said that two of its members had been killed and vowed a response.

The escalation was caused due to outrage of a video that began circulating social media, showing a reported IDF bulldozer scooping the body of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad member who was shot, and killed on February 23rd.

The dead man was identified as 27-year-old Mohammed Al-Naim. The Quds Brigade, the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, said he was one of their fighters.

In the video, a group of four men is seen moving toward the body in an apparent attempt to retrieve it. A bulldozer from the Israeli army approached from the opposite direction.

Gunshots could be heard as the bulldozer moved up to the group, which was forced to abandon its effort to carry the body away. Other men nearby could be seen throwing rocks at the vehicle.

The bulldozer’s front scoop then appears to come down on top of the dead body as the driver makes several unsuccessful attempts to pick it up.

Eventually the body is seen hanging from the scoop before the bulldozer drives back to the Israeli side of the fence, protected by a tank.

Why don’t they fire rockets on IDF bases and airports?

Zionism = EVIL

The Gazans are brave people but the Egyptian pimps have a blockade so they only defend themselves with whatever they have. The biggest problem for Palestinians is the sell-out pimp Mahmoud Abbas who is working for Zionists. The Zionist cowards are most vulnerable in Palestine proper and have the right demographics for an armed struggle.

Heh, take it easy, brother! I don’t know what the heck you meant by what you wrote. Just goofing around. You can edit your comments.


Hamas is the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood was created by the British intelligence to serve British (and now Anglo-American) interests in Muslim nations.

The following should shed additional light on recent events:

Israel Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, discreetly sent Mossad’s director, Yossi Cohen (photo), to Qatar on February 5th. This was revealed by Israeli former Defense Minster, Avigdor Lieberman on February 24th.

He was accompanied by General Herzl Halevi, commander of the southern front to meet his Qatari counterpart, Mohammed Bin Ahmed Al-Misnad.

Together, they discussed the continuation of payment, by Qatar, to the Palestinian administration of Gaza.

Currently, Israel controls the Muslim Brotherhood of Gaza, i.e. Hamas, through Qatar while Iran controls the Islamic Jihad.

Tensions between Qatar and Iran escalated following General Qassem Soleimani’s assassination with US drones that took off from Qatar.

On February 24th, Israel’s Air Force bombed alleged Islamic Jihad buildings in Damascus (Syria); killing six people.

Bonsoir Omega,

Sur un sujet complètement different

COVID-19 May Have Originated from the US? Japanese TV Broadcast






La meilleure réponse et conseille a donner a tout ca,
c’est de bien entretenir le système immunitaire
avec de la cuisine Libanaise et de l’exercice
pour faire la nick aux Big-Pharma !

Au Diable l’hystérie organisée par les mainstream Merdias !

Ce soir le Mont-Blanc et les Alpes étaient superbe avec l’alpenglow
L’Alpenglow (en italien : Enrosadira ; en allemand : Alpenglühen) est un phénomène optique qui se présente sous la forme d’une lueur rougeâtre horizontale près de l’horizon opposé du soleil lorsque le disque solaire est juste en dessous de l’horizon. Cet effet est facilement visible lorsque les montagnes sont éclairées, mais … Les couleurs du matin sont plus roses et violettes …


Bonsoir Alex; j’espère que vous allez bien. Tout à fait; de le bonne cuisine, de l’exercice et du soleil sont primordials pour une bonne santé. Le Big Pharma, on laisse ça aux Américains où le système de “santé” se charge de maintenir les maladies au lieu de les guérir.

Merci pour les très bons liens (ainsi qu’au sujet de Witz). Le virus corona c’est vraiment ça: une autre arme UK/US contre la compétition. Quand c’est pas conventionnelle ou économique, c’est biologique – les lâches. La simulation (Event 201) six semaines avant le début de l’hystérie médiatique n’était pas pour rien.



I dont like the Jews.
Fire More rockets.

Karen Bartlett

Go, Quds Force, and God go with you!


Just Bibi and Hamas working hand in hand like before every election, but Israelis don’t buy Bibi’s lies anymore. Expect a surprise one more week.

It seems blurry images of people carrying stuff is enough for the isreali regime to use deadly force. For all the regime know he could have been carrying his lunch.

The isreali regime is truly The Planet Of The Apes.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
