Posted on 08/20/2011 2:37:21 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
Israel Air Force fighter jets eliminated a terrorist squad in northern Gaza late Saturday afternoon.
Military sources confirmed a direct hit on the terrorist cell, which had apparently just finished launching a mortar attack on southern Israel.
Israeli fighter pilots on Friday night attacked two terrorist tunnels, a weapons factory in southern Gaza and a terrorist training center as well. Direct hits were confirmed on all targets, and all IDF personnel returned safely to their bases.
The IDF will not tolerate any attempts to harm Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers and will respond with determination to any attempt to use terror against the State of Israel, said the IDF Spokesman in a statement.
The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
The Hamas rulers of Gaza took responsibility for a lethal barrage of Grad Katyusha missiles on the southern cities of Ofakim and Be'er Sheva Saturday night. One man died in the attacks, and numerous others were wounded, including a four-month-old baby and an eight-year-old girl.

“Israel Air Force fighter jets eliminated a terrorist squad in northern Gaza late Saturday afternoon”
Will there be any “congradulation” statement from the Obama Whitehouse in the take down of these jihad waging terrorists?
Don’t wait for it.
When it comes to our ally Israel there is always a double-standard of hypocrisy by other nations when it comes to Israel going after the terrorists.
It seems to me that the next time the IDF enters Gaza, it should emplace some special detonation charges along the most heavily tunneled routes that would make the ground semi permanently unstable to tunneling.
The fine art of sandhogging, or tunnel digging, is a lot harder than it might seem on the surface. Some types of ground are just not worth even trying to tunnel through, for lots of different reasons.
The way the Israelis would do this would be to take well digging equipment into Gaza, burrow down a hundred or more feet, and plant specialized charges, that could likely make tunneling very problematic in a large, 3D area around the detonation.
I checked and Gaza is only 136sq miles. With that said a couple dozen MOABs could take care of the terror problem for good.
Exactly. Wipe them out. MDK, baby.
>One man died in the attacks, and numerous others were wounded, including a four-month-old baby and an eight-year-old girl.
The muzzy scum really should try harder to get baby sitters instead of bringing the kids to their bomb making and terror training
jobs. I suppose teenage girl sitters are off limits since they can’t leave home without a male escort. That still leaves 70% of adult males
that are not working while the other 30% do their terror jobs.
How these women abusing, child killing lazy paliscum get so much sympathy from so many morons is beyond me.
Oh, hell no. He’ll pull a Colin Powell and waggle his finger at the Israelis saying that this action “doesn’t help the peace process.”
I/we need a good word besides "Palistinian's" to call these liars, I mean they're not Latin speakers, no one in the ME likes them but uses them and everyone in the world is whining about disproportionate responses and genocise when it comes to Israel, so what is a good name for these lazt arsed desert fleas?
In which case the IDF should eliminate Hamas starting at the top, following the chain of command downward...
------RAFAH, Gaza Strip A jackhammer pounded large steel beams side by side into the sandy soil on the Egyptian side of Gaza's border, putting in place an underground wall that could shift the balance of power in this volatile area.
Once completed, the steel barrier would cut off blockaded Gaza's last lifeline and by slicing through hundreds of smuggling tunnels under the nine-mile Gaza-Egypt border could increase pressure on the territory's Hamas rulers to moderate.
Exactly. Stop handling these vermin with kid gloves.
I sense I good way to pay off some debt...Pay per view.
YES...or carrion as another great poster states. I suppose we can call them “shrapnellites.” Not too PC are we? But honest!
Hee hee , nice, and it’s biblical!
WHEN did this “Egyptian subterranean wall” happen? I don’t recall hearing it ANYWHERE. This happen back in Mubarak’s time? I thought the Egyptians had opened their borders with Gaza wide open... In fact, I KNOW they did when Mubarak fell. What’s the REAL story behind this, because it sounds like propaganda....?
The Egyptians installed a sheet piling subterranean wall
