Israel Launches Tank And Airstrikes Against Hamas In Gaza Strip As Threat Of Massive War Looms

The Israeli army said it hit 18 Hamas military targets from Saturday night through to Sunday, including "weapons manufacturing infrastructure" and a tunnel being dug by militants. It also targeted two observation posts. Palestinian officials said three Hamas training camps and one belonging to a smaller group had been struck.

The Israeli military has carried out a number of strikes against Palestinian positions overnight in the Gaza Strip. They came in response to a bomb attack on Saturday which wounded four Israeli soldiers.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Israel, the Palestinians and Iran by proxy stand on the edge of all out war as another intifada threatens to rear its ugly head. The Jerusalem Post says ‘while the Gaza Strip is a tinderbox waiting to explode, the growing Iranian entrenchment in Syria and Lebanon poses the biggest risk for Israel. Unlike Hamas in Gaza, the Iranian war machine can wreak immeasurable damage on the Jewish State.’

Two Palestinians were killed by Israeli tank fire in Gaza. The Israeli air force also claimed to have destroyed a number of sites linked to Hamas. It is one of the most serious escalations in violence since Israel and Hamas fought a war in 2014.

The Israeli army said it hit 18 Hamas military targets from Saturday night through to Sunday, including “weapons manufacturing infrastructure” and a tunnel being dug by militants. It also targeted two observation posts.

Palestinian officials said three Hamas training camps and one belonging to a smaller group had been struck.

Hamas’s military wing, the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, claimed that it had used anti-aircraft missiles against Israeli jets flying over the coastal territory.

On Saturday two Palestinian teenagers were also killed by Israeli tank fire east of Rafah. The pair were in a group approaching the border in “a suspicious manner”, Israel’s army said.

It came after four Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers were injured, two seriously, in an explosion on Saturday afternoon east of the town of Khan Younis.

The army said the explosive device had been planted during a demonstration there on Friday and was attached to a flag which the troops attempted to remove. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is attending a security conference in Munich, Germany, said: “The incident on the Gaza border is very serious. We will respond appropriately.” source

DUE TO RISING OPERATING COSTS WE HAVE DECIDED TO EXTEND OUR FUNDRAISER TO THE SPRING

HOW TO DONATE: Click here to view our GoFundMe page

NTEB has been hit with some serious bills related to our operating costs in 2018, the price of everything is going up! So we have prayerfully decided to extend our fundraiser into the springtime, specifically to May 14th, 2018. Without your generous support of this ministry, we would not be able to continue operating.

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the building of the recording studio, but it also goes to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations.

Personally, I hate having to hold a fundraiser, I truly do. If I had them money I would give it all personally and never ask anyone for a penny. In fact, I have given everything I have to this ministry. But the Lord knows better than I do, and I  believe with all my heart that He is asking all of you to invest in this ministry as well.

But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 12,426 people on our daily mailing list gave $2.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 151,913 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 600% of our goal. The same goes for our 13,500 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.

“Thank you very much!” – Geoffrey, editor-in-chief, NTEB
