As Israel Prepares For A ‘Ground Invasion’ Of The Gaza Strip, Netanyahu Says Hamas Will Pay A ‘Heavy Price’ For Killing 4 Israelis

In a statement to his cabinet this morning, Mr Netanyahu said: 'I instructed the military this morning to continue its massive strikes on terror elements in the Gaza Strip and ordered it to reinforce the troops around the Gaza Strip with tanks, artillery and infantry force.'  By the time we here in America are waking up tomorrow Monday morning, Israel will likely have already declared that a state of war exists. Even while I am typing this now, I am seeing tweets from the IDF popping up telling that more rockets from Hamas are coming across the border. You can see that tweet below. And so it begins.

Israel has reportedly killed a Hamas commander in a series of airstrikes amid reports it is planning to invade Gaza following a series of skirmishes with Palestinians.

As I write this, it is 7:51 PM EST here in the state of Florida, and it is 2:51 AM in the sovereign nation of Israel. As the sun rises over the middle east in a little under 3 hours from now at 5:52 AM, Israel tanks will already have parked on the Gaza Strip border, waiting orders to enter into Gaza to root out Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorists.

“But I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza, which shall devour the palaces thereof:” Amos 1:7 (KJV)

Israel has not suffered civilian casualties like this in many years, at least not since 2014, and Benjamin Netanyahu is beyond fuming. Only the LORD knows how big this thing is going to get, but reports coming out of Israel this evening tells us that Netanyahu has ordered the IDF to ‘flatten Hamas’. Hamas wanted a fight, now they have one.

By the time we here in America are waking up tomorrow Monday morning, Israel will likely have already declared that a state of war exists. Even while I am typing this now, I am seeing tweets from the IDF popping up telling that more rockets from Hamas are coming across the border. You can see that tweet below. And so it begins.

Israel kill Hamas commander in airstrike and ‘prepares Gaza ground invasion’ as it hits back after 600 militant rockets kill four and injure 66

FROM DAILY MAIL UK: A military statement said that commander Hamed Ahmed Abed Khudri had been killed in a targeted air strike on his car on Sunday. Khudri was reportedly responsible for transferring funds from Iran to armed factions in Gaza. Palestinian witnesses said he was killed in an air strike on his car.

Four Israelis and 22 Palestinians, including two pregnant woman and an infant, have died so far in air strikes which began as Palestinians fired 600 rockets across the border on Friday.

It comes as Israel’s ground troops are reportedly preparing to siege the Gaza perimeter.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Hamas, the dissident group which rules Gaza, is paying a ‘heavy price‘ for its attacks on his country. And he has ordered a large military corps up to the besieged enclave as the month-long ceasefire is left in tatters.

In a statement to his cabinet this morning, Mr Netanyahu said: ‘I instructed the military this morning to continue its massive strikes on terror elements in the Gaza Strip and ordered it to reinforce the troops around the Gaza Strip with tanks, artillery and infantry force.’

Moshe Agadi, a 58-year-old father of four, was struck in the chest by shrapnel during a missile strike on the city of Ashkelon near the border and marked the fighting’s first Israeli fatality in five years.

Eight Palestinian militants have also died in airstrikes which formed part of Israel’s retaliation that Mr Netanyahu has vowed to continue.

A pregnant woman and a one-year-old baby were also killed, but Israel is claiming that their deaths were caused by a misfired Palestinian rocket. And Israeli Defence Forces are standing by to invade the blockaded Gaza strip, according to the Independent.

The fighting came as leaders from Hamas, the militant group that rules Gaza, and the smaller armed faction Islamic Jihad, were in Cairo for talks with Egyptian mediators aimed at preventing a fraying ceasefire from collapsing altogether.

It also comes at a sensitive time for Israel, which is to mark its Memorial Day and Independence Day holiday this week, before hosting the Eurovision song contest in the middle of the month. Prolonged fighting could overshadow the Eurovision and potentially deter international travelers from coming in for the festive event.

On Saturday video footage of a family screaming in fear during rocket attacks was posted on social media. Israel and Hamas, an Islamic group that opposes Israel’s existence, have fought three wars and dozens of smaller flare-ups of violence since Hamas seized control of Gaza in 2007. READ MORE

The conflict between Israel and Gaza enters its second day

The conflict between Israel and Gaza factions entered its second day Sunday, after a night that saw the first Israeli fatality. More than 600 rockets have so far been launched at Israel, as the Israeli army struck hundreds of Hamas and Islamic Jihad targets in the Strip.
