Due to the security situation, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu declared a "special situation" on the home front in the area adjacent to the Gaza Strip within a 40 km radius from Gaza, for 48 hours (extendable).

Please Note: On April 20 of this year (two weeks ago) I suffered a major heart attack and underwent Quadruple Bypass Open-Heart Surgery on my heart at Englewood Hospital & Medical Center in New Jersey on April 25 (Ten days ago). I am just getting back to news updating as all this stuff is breaking in Israel.
I absolutely, positively, will not give myself another heart attack doing this AND WORRYING ABOUT HOW TO PAY FOR IT, while tens of thousands of folks come here, read the live news, and let me collapse financially by failing to subscribe or make donations.
It costs me money in DATA TRANSFER CHARGES for you to read my news. You read, I GET BILLED. I have to get Financial help or this news site dies.

Hamed Hamdan El Hadary, Hamas field commander was targeted in the car assassination.
Local reports are calling it a targeted F16 strike rather than a drone, which is interesting if true. It means they are not messing with the firepower using an F-16 launched AGM

Media "Gag Order" issued by Israeli Government
Something big took place on the Israel/Gaza Border around 8:45 AM EDT that has has triggered a MEDIA GAG ORDER inside Israel.
I know what has taken place. Moreover, what I know has just been confirmed to me by my former colleagues in the Intelligence Community with whom I worked while with the FBI from 1993-2008, my final five years (03-08) with the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF).
In light of this covert intelligence information, I must now place further updates to this story for SUBSCRIBERS ONLY. Folks who support this site with $1 a week Subscription, billed Quarterly ($13) HERE, or $5 a Month HERE, can get this information. Their support helps pay the bills for this site and keep it in operation. As such, THEY get information that the general public does not.
What has taken place is very bad and the Israeli Government is concealing it until they can figure out how to get it to the public without causing the Israeli people to freak out. YOU can get the info, if you subscribe right now. Of course, you will also continue to see additional LIVE UPDATES too . . .
This section of the article is only available for Subscribers who support this web site with $1 a week billed either Quarterly ($13) or monthly ($5).
This is necessary because this is a CLOUD-BASED web site. The way it works is YOU READ . . . I GET BILLED for "Data Transfer."
Despite being politely asked for voluntary donations, few people ever bothered to donate. Then, despite being asked to click an ad within a story to generate ad revenue for this site, the majority of the general public couldn't be bothered with that, either. So there's no reason to give the general public free news anymore; they don't pull their own weight.
With tens-of-thousands of people reading stories here every day, the costs nearly drove the site out of business.
In order to be able to continue providing cutting-edge news, often hours or even DAYS before Drudge and most of the "mass-media" -- if they even cover it at all -- I need to be able to sustain this effort. To do that, I rely on folks like YOU contributing a pittance of about $1 a week; which is chump-change that you won't even miss! Yet that small amount makes all the difference in the world to the continued existence of this web site.
In the final analysis, knowledge is power. Getting information first, or info that other sources simply don't report, is usually well worth a few bucks in the long run.
