IAF jets struck several targets in the Gaza Strip Friday night following the launching of rockets towards southern Israel by Palestinian terrorists
After a relatively quiet summer, Palestinian terror group Hamas has once again fired a barrage of rockets at southern Israel. The IAF responded quickly and efficiently with a target strike Hamas offices and homes in the Gaza Strip. Just another day in the Holy Land, right? Consider this.
“For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that he might destroy them utterly, and that they might have no favour, but that he might destroy them, as the LORD commanded Moses.” Joshua 11:20 (KJV)
Can you imagine just for a moment what it must be like to be Israel, and to be constantly defending your borders and having to sky the skies night and day with no respite of any kind? Now imagine what will happen after the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church takes place in Revelation 4, Jesus releases Antichrist in Revelation 6, and the Jews hail him as the Messiah, and for the first time ever in the 70+ years of regathered Israel’s history they will have peace, and they will have rest. And the whole thing will be a trap sent by God to judge His chosen people the Jews. It will be the time of Jacob’s trouble.
“And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” Matthew 24:19-22 (KJV)
Pray for Israel and for the Jewish people. Trouble is coming for them that will make the Holocaust look like a church picnic. All Christians should pray for Israel and the Jews, and if you don’t, maybe you aren’t really a Christian.
IDF STRIKES TARGETS IN GAZA FOLLOWING ROCKET FIRE
FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: According to the Israeli military, fighter jets and other aircraft struck two underground terrorist infrastructures belonging to Hamas in the north and center of the coastal enclave. “The attack was carried out in response to the rocket fire launched from the Gaza Strip earlier this night,” read a statement released by the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit, adding that “the IDF will continue to work against attempts to harm Israeli civilians, and considers the Hamas terror organization responsible for everything that is done in and that comes out of the Gaza Strip.”
According to local Palestinian media, Israel targeted a Hamas outpost in the Tuffah district of Gaza City as well as targets in the cities of Jabalia and Khan Younis.
Earlier on Friday, explosions were heard in southern Israel after incoming rocket sirens were activated in several communities bordering the northern Strip. Sirens were heard in Sderot, Or Haner, Erez, Gva’im, and Avivim at 9 p.m.
The barrage came as tensions have risen in the South following several violent infiltrations along the border fence. In less than two weeks, six armed Palestinians were able to infiltrate into southern Israel before being engaged by IDF troops and killed.
On Sunday, Israeli troops shot and killed 26-year-old Marwan Nasser, who opened fire on them while trying to infiltrate. No Israelis were hurt in the incident and surrounding communities were not placed under increased security. During his funeral Nasser was seen wearing a green bandana associated with Hamas’s military wing, the Izzadin al-Qassam Brigades.
The incident came 24 hours after IDF troops shot dead four heavily armed Palestinians, who attempted to infiltrate with rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs), AK-47 assault rifles and grenades. While the military hasn’t yet determined which group was behind the foiled attack, they put the responsibility of the attack squarely on Hamas.
The four militants were identified as former Hamas members 21-year-old Abdullah Ismail Al-Hamaida, 19-year-old Abdullah Ashraf al-Ghomri, 20-year-old Ahmad Ayman al-Adeini and 21-year-old Abdallah al-Masri, all of Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip.
On August 1, an IDF officer and two soldiers were injured and a Hamas militant was killed in an exchange of fire at the border in the area of Kissufim in southern Israel. READ MORE
Debunking the Palestine Lie
This video debunks the Palestinians’ claim and shows that Abbas has been lying about the origins and history of the conflict. Palestinian leaders have rejected partition plans that would have given them much more land for their independent state than the Jews were offered for theirs. Rather than being the innocent victims of a “dispossession” at the hands of the Israelis, the Palestinians rejected reasonable compromises and instead pursued their aim of getting rid of the only Jewish state in the world.
