BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – A major confrontation is taking place place between the Israeli and Palestinian forces in the Gaza Strip tonight.

According to a report released by the Israeli military,  the confrontation began when members of Hamas fired several rockets towards the Sderot settlement near the Gaza Strip.

Local Palestinian activists reported that the rocket attack was in response to Israel killing a member of Hamas recently.

As a result of this conflict, several airstrikes have been launched by the Israeli Air Force, along with heavy shelling from their ground forces.

In response to the airstrikes and shelling, the Palestinian forces have launched several rockets towards the Israeli settlements, prompting the IDF to activate their missile sirens near the Gaza Strip.

Israel’s Iron Dome system managed to intercept most of the rockets, but some did reach the Israeli settlements, causing material damage to some homes.

More details to come…

The ‘famous Iron Dome is not capable of shooting down all of a small ‘firework’ attack , so IF Israel is successful in getting her war with Iran, how will the Iron Dome and a few Patriots. + the new Davids Sling that failed to bring down a couple of Grad rockets a few weeks ago cope with thousands of missiles hitting Israel in a few days 🙂

“The ‘famous Iron Dome is not capable of shooting down all of a small ‘firework’ attack” => Have you ever took a look at a map? Sderot is 1.5km from Hamastan. In fact, IDF should at least truck-mount CIWS Phalanx (see Porcupine/Centurion C-RAM) gun. Flight time is really too short for missile interception… There are even better systems : Thales Goalkeeper (A-10 gun!), Oerlikon Millenium Gun (MANTIS/Skyshield), DRACO (76/62mm gun), AK-630M2 etc etc etc… Actually, in their place, I’d even put CIWS all along the fence and anything bigger than a cat, a dog or a toddler crossing the fence… Read more »

Hamas aren’t “Palestinian Forces” : they’re part of the nefarious Muslim Brotherhood (banned in Russia, Syria, Egypt, etc) and openly back al-Nusra/HTS in Syria and ISIS in Egypt. Hamas uses human shields, uses protected buildings (hospitals, schools, etc) as military bases and deliberately shoots at non-military targets (settlements, etc), moreover they deliberately randomly degrade environment with their Molotov-balloons/kites. Hamas are terrorists and war criminals who only deserve to have their a$$es kicked by all those they hate. In fact, these roaches would even deserve Assad sending SAA and SyAAF to help IDF at liberating Gaza like they liberated Deir-Ezzor or… Read more »

So you’re just like Muhammad, you’re also into necrophilia. What an uncanny idea willing to have your d**k sucked by her ashes… Well, it might be the result having your grand father also being your father and this cycle repeating all along several generations : 100% consanguinity makes serious retards. In fact, you’re so retarded that your dad who is also your grand dad, sold you to a fetishist club where they’re into scatology. From this moment, your mouth has been nicknamed ‘brown tornado alley” and after years and years at eating brown tornado, every time you open it, it’s… Read more »

US supports Al-Queda in Africa according the newest AP report. Obama was a Fan of the Brotherhood and placed many in high US Government security positions. Hilary Clinton’s camp was infested with the MB. Now we have Trump and the Zionists. I question this whole “war on terror ” as a ruse.

Also consider this. Why no terrorist attacks in the US? While Obama was supporting the Iranian nuclear deal we were plaqued with attacks and many near misses which were under reported. Now that Team Trump and the Zionist are in charge we see no attacks and a war looming with Iran. Who benefits but Saudis and Israelis. I suspect Saudi and Israeli intel services are behind terrorists attacks in the US.

If only it was so simple. Are you able to understand the old Aexander the Great strategy Iran applied by creating… ISIS? Now inform yourself how Qatar shenanigans worked to get them the 2022 Worldcup… The terrorism shït proceeds the same way. And… EVERYBODY plays dirty. If you start to dig, thinking there are good boys and bad boys, you’ll end VERY unpleased : in geopolitics, EVERYBODY is evil… Thus, it’s clear that the most nasty ones are religious fanatics, and Shia ones are not exempted : when it comes to foreign politics, the 3 worst ones we have now… Read more »

“The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilisation from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all religions”- From “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America”, 1991
