Israeli Air Force takes out 40 mosques-cum-rocket stores, brings new drone into Gaza operation
Debka ^ | July 31, 2014 | Debka

Posted on 07/31/2014 10:59:28 AM PDT by BeauBo

The Israeli Air Force bombed 40 mosques in Gaza Tuesday night, July 30, in the most extensive operation against Hamas’ religious institutions-cum-military bases so far. In total, at least 50 mosques have been blown up along with their stockpiles of rockets and arms caches.

These concentrated air strikes on rocket arsenals are as integral to Operation Protective Edge as the ground work in destroying tunnels. They have been stepped up in advance of the preparations launched by the government on Wednesday for the possible termination of the IDF ground operation in the Gaza Strip and the withdrawal of troops. debkafile's sources say that the order to end the ground operation in Gaza would not mean that the war is over. There are no illusions about the Palestinian extremist groups laying down their arms. In practical terms, therefore, Israeli troops will regroup and spread out along the border as a barrier against future Hamas attempts to keep up its terror offensive by means of cross-border commando raids using undiscovered tunnels and firing rockets and mortars into Israel.

The speculation in this article is that Israel is preparing the battlefield to withdraw, encircle Gaza and lay siege in a longer war of attrition.

This is good news. I thought these muzzie terrorists were only using hospitals and schools as weapons storage facilities and military operations.

Then they weren’t mosques. Once ham-ass stockpiles weapons in it, it is a target.

Good journalism would put quotes around the word “Mosque”. Mosques, at least the ones in Gaza are command and control centers and weapons depots.

The liberals will decry this attack on houses of worship, without addressing the fact that Hamas started this war. Or addressing the fact that these mosques are military targets because the enemy is using them as military sites.

Wrong. There are exactly the same number of mosques and toilets. The terms are interchangeable.

I just saw it here, but thought that it would be interesting to those closely following the war.

I think some imams got a message from the “other side” that the virgin demand can’t keep up with the number of reprobates the IDF is sending over “there”, so the imams are pissed... Nothing more than that... High concentration of 72-virgin eligibles in Mosques... Doncha know...

A Muslim bomb cache blowing up is “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth”, to borrow a partial quote.

theoretically not; $hit in (Semons), $hit out (Fecal Mat'l.)...
Respect for religion?..in the "West Bank", they use Ancient Christian Churches as toilets.

But bombing mosques is a war crime. The secondary explosions might harm innocent civilians.

My husband and I sat with Helen Thomas’s niece on a cross country flight. She was absolutely a “ten” and a wonderful personality. She was a conservative also, which is how we got to talking, pro-life all the way!

termination of the IDF ground operation in the Gaza Strip and the withdrawal of troops.

And kick the can down the road a little longer. It will be worse next time.Maybe it will be less one sided and the Americans will be pleased that the Jews are dying at the same rate as the jihadists.
