150 Palestinians surrender to IDF in Gaza
Algemeiner ^ | July 24, 2014 | Adiv Sterman

Dozens of operatives from southern Strip, mostly Hamas members, transferred to Israeli facilities for interrogation ozens of Palestinian terror operatives, most of whom were said to be members of Hamas, surrendered Wednesday to IDF soldiers during raids in the southern Gaza Strip cities of Rafah and Khan Yunis.

The operatives, who came out of hiding spots with their hands raised above their heads, were taken into Israeli custody for further questioning.

In total, 150 Palestinians were arrested, but only 70 of them who were suspected of carrying out terror attacks were transferred under tight security to IDF Intelligence and Shin Bet facilities for interrogation, an IDF spokeswoman told The Times of Israel, adding to 28 operatives already captured. The remaining detainees were later released, Army Radio reported.

A picture of the Gazans posted on Facebook by Israeli Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz showed two rows of captives wearing only underwear and shoes, on their knees in the sand. They were stripped of their clothes in order to ensure they were not carrying weapons.

The IDF said no soldiers were injured during overnight operations in the Gaza Strip, but several were lightly hurt Thursday morning in the northern part of the Strip.

More than 100 targets were struck by the IDF Wednesday throughout the entire Gaza Strip, an army spokesman said. Since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge on July 8, the IDF hit more than 3,330 targets, including tunnels, rocket launchers, and several Hamas military headquarters.

On Wednesday morning, three Israeli paratroopers were killed in Khan Yunis, bringing the army’s death toll to 32 since the IDF began operating on the ground in Gaza last week, the army said. Two soldiers were seriously wounded and 10 more were moderately injured.

Additionally, the army on Wednesday bombed Al-Wafa hospital in Gaza City, calling it “a Hamas military compound.” The IDF said there was a command-and-control center in the hospital, a lookout post used to monitor IDF forces, and several access shafts to a tunnel network beneath the hospital.

On Tuesday ​the hospital was evacuated from patients and staff, the army said, but was still in use by Hamas gunmen, who continued to fire at the IDF forces. On Wednesday, prior to the airstrike, the Gaza Coordination and Liaison Administration confirmed that the hospital was empty of patients and staff.

The strike set off massive secondary explosions, supporting the army’s contention that there was an arms cache, perhaps of rockets, beneath the hospital.

Meanwhile, the Shin Bet announced that it had succeeded, along with the army, in either killing or incapacitate four mid-to high-level Palestinian Islamic Jihad commanders, all in the Khan Yunis area.

According to the Shin Bet, the officials included the group’s Khan Yunis commander Akram Shaar, who was behind a series of attacks against Israeli soldiers and was in charge of rocket fire from the area; Mahmoud Ziada, a resident of Jabalya, who had served as a battalion commander in the northern sector; Sha’aban Dahduh, of Gaza City, also a battalion commander, whom the Shin Bet referred to as “outstanding”; and Saeed Ma’amar, also a battalion commander, in the Rafah brigade.

According to the IDF, more than 210 terrorists were killed since the ground incursion began last Thursday night, among them several high-ranking Hamas officers, including the commander of the group’s surveillance unit.

A senior Israeli security source asserted Wednesday that Hamas’s rocket manufacturing capacity had taken a strong hit during the IDF’s operation in the Palestinian enclave.

Isn’t it interesting how, even in Hamas, suicide bombing is for the little people. The leaders hide underground and the terrorists themselves would rather surrender to Israel than blow themselves up.

Yet Hamas dupes others into wearing suicide vests, becoming human shields and taking other actions that risk their own lives.

Just another brilliant tactical stage in their glorious fight, they’re going to overwhelm the Israelis with prisoners.

Obama will probably offer to fly them to Texas and integrate them into the US.

But wouldn’t it be stupid to surrender to people who are actively engaged in cremes against humanity? What is they torture you and cut off your head? The UN and I seem to be missing something.

Obama won't have to. Pali families will send their children to the US for refugee status and they'll be placed with relatives. One can't help but suspect that a lot of school districts are going to be overwhelmed with refugee children, and not just from Central America.

The second picture shows how important clean underwear is if you are entertaining surrender to the Israelis.

Israel should render them sterile by chemical means before any thought of releasing them.

The Hamas prisoners know that they're just "temporary" prisoners, since, after a cease-fire agreement is reached, they'll be traded back to Hamas for one Israeli prisoner. It happens all the time, the those prisoners will be back in Gaza planning their next wave of attacks against Israel as soon as they're released.

Clean color coordinated underwear.

There must be a Hamas wardrobe consultant. “Okay, now the guys who are going to surrender wear the blue, the guys who are going to run away wear the yellow, and the guys who are going to defend the hospital/armory can wear any color, but bring several sets.”

Things have gotten better, though. The IDF used to have to capture the prisoners to exchange, now Hamas provides them.

They were photographed in their undies. We enlightened westerners know from experiences in Iraq that that is a form of torture.

Good. Now line them up and shoot them dead. They’re not an army, they’re terrorists and as such can be executed under the Geneva Convention.

Good grief. I’m the problem?

Advocating killing people surrendering with their hands up and I’m the problem?

Bert, I hope and sincerely pray you never ever get into a position of power within our government.
