UPDATE 7:38 PM EST --

Israeli Intelligence has made an assessment that the response by HAMAS to the events of today will likely consist of a large missile barrage.

There is, however, dissent within the Intel ranks.  SOME ( a minority) of Intel Analysts believe HAMAS will launch accurate, long range Iranian designed missiles directly at Tel Aviv later today with the intent of killing Israeli government officials.  These same analysts also say today's killing of HAMAS top military commander will cause elements in Gaza to pull out all the stops and go for broke, launching everything they have.

A majority of other analysts disagrees with both these assessments.

COVERT INTEL - RESTRICTED ACCESS
Intelligence assets on the ground in Gaza and in the West Bank have reported almost unimaginable planning in progress by "Palestinians" to retaliate for today's killing of the top Palestinian Military Commander in Gaza by IDF Forces. The plan is bold, both spectacular and horrific in its intent, and IS ACHIEVABLE. This information is extremely sensitive. . . . if it were revealed publicly, it could cause widespread PANIC in Israel, which is definitely NOT what anyone wants to happen; especially since steps are being taken to deal with this potential eventuality.

 UPDATE 8:30 PM EST --

IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement, “During IDF special forces’ operational activity in Gaza, an exchange of fire broke out, during which an IDF officer was killed and an additional IDF officer was moderately injured.”

The statement called on residents of the Gaza envelope to listen to the instructions in their communities and obey the instructions issued by the Home Front Command.

The incident occurred during an IDF operation three kilometers deep inside the Gaza Strip. The force entered Gaza in a civilian car, apparently in order to eliminate or kidnap Nur Barakeh, commander of the eastern battalion of Hamas’ Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades in Khan Yunis.

According to reports from Gaza, due to a complication in the operation, exchanges of fire broke out between the terrorists and the Israeli forces, during which the Israel Air Force attacked in Gaza and killed at least seven Hamas terrorists.

The special force of the IDF was able to leave Gaza and, contrary to rumors that circulated at the time, no soldier was CAPTURED. Following the incident, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu cut short his visit to Paris and is now making his way to Israel.

On Sunday evening, sirens were heard in the Gaza envelope. According to the IDF, at least 10 rockets fired from the Gaza Strip exploded in open areas or were intercepted by the Iron Dome system. There were no physical injuries.

 

 UPDATE 9:39 PM EST --

Roads in Israel near the Gaza border have now been blocked off.

 

Prime Minister Netanyahu touches down in Israel and is now in security convoy heading from airport

 

IDF jets and drones are still flying intensively over the Gaza Strip.

 

UPDATE 10:11 PM EST --

The IDF officer who was killed was a Druze Lieutenant Colonel from Hurfeish and the second officer wounded from Isfiya. He was the deputy commander of the unit.

    If "Palestinians" respond too aggressively against Israel, Israel can immediately cut off Gaza electricity, water, and/or the food shipments at will. A "fight to the death" will, yes, mean some Israeli casualties, but also all of the 1.9 million who live in Gaza are at risk.

    Oh... Originally, I thought that the conflict between Israel and Syria could lead to the World War III, like Russia against Israel. But the picture has changed. From now, it will be just between Israel and Gaza.

    Since Israel is not able to invade S-300 installed Syria, it was turning to its domestic problem.

    So, it decided that it wanted to stay busy by entering a self-governing Palestinian territory secretly to get someone.

    Israel's plan failed and it could lead to a full war between Israel, armed by the U.S., and heavily armed Gaza. The world may do nothing but watching them fighting against each other.

    Underdog Gaza may find a way to take over Israel by itself, as others are supplying extremely good weapons to it. Israel may be renamed to "Palestine", if it is captured.

    The special operations troops were extricated under air cover after a Hamas ambush east of Khan Younes, Sunday night, Nov. 11, Hamas reported seven dead, including a senior commander. The IDF force was discovered by Hamas while conducting a counter-terror operation and surrounded under heavy fire. The Israeli air force was sent in and bombed the sources of enemy fire to get the men out and across the border to Israel. The massive aerial bombardment was massive enough to be heard at a far distance. Early Monday, the IDF spokesman issued the following communique: “In the course of an operation by an IDF special unit, an exchange of fire developed during which an Israeli officer was killed and a second injured [and evacuated to hospital in Beersheba]. The operation is over. The OC Southern Command ordered the roads between 232 and the Gaza border off-limits to traffic, excepting only local residents.”Hamas released this statement: “Am Israeli army special unit entered Gaza territory driving civilian vehicles. It reached 3km deep up to the Shahid Ismail Abu Shanav east of Khan Younes. The unit assassinated Nour Barakeh, a commander of Hamas’ armed wing. After it was discovered,” said the Hamas statement, ”the Israeli air force bombed the area to cover the withdrawal of the Israeli force, causing casualties.”To understand what happened Sunday night, it is essential to pinpoint the moment when Hamas knew about the special Israeli unit operation, say DEBKAfile’s military sources. Were the IDF troops blown the moment they crossed the border fence? Or when they reached Khan Younes? In the worst case, Hamas had an intelligence tip-off of the coming raid and had prepared an ambush along the unit’s line of retreat.Hamas maintains a string of observation posts along the border for surveillance of the Israel side – some from towers; others hidden behind sand dunes. Now and again, highly-trained spies steal across from Gaza into Israel unnoticed and return with information on IDF military movements and the civilian activity.One such spy was captured on Saturday, Nov. 10, after he had covered hundreds of meters up to Netiv Ha’asarah to the north of the Gaza Strip and set fire to a greenhouse. The IDF later stated “The terrorist was under surveillance from the moment he crossed the border.” There was no explanation as to why he was not apprehended before he had time to roam free, because this kind of spying has been going on for some months without being brought to the public notice.During nearly 8 months of border clashes between the IDF and Hamas and other Palestinian groups, these terrorists have had a chance to closely study Israel military practices, responses and norms, and learn how to counter them, whether in border clashes or in raids inside their territory in the Gaza Strip. The violent disturbances of tens of thousands of Palestinian rioters going on week after week were far from demonstrations by a needy population; they were craftily designed to understand the Israeli enemy they have sworn to destroy. What happened on Sunday night was the result. The writing had been on the wall from April

    So all you scholars, the question is about Palestine.

    It appears that most of you cannot find your asses with both hands.

    Palestine was OWNED by the Ottoman Turks. It was an EMPIRE. The property was owned by the Sultan.

    "Palestine is the name (first referred to by the Ancient Greeks) of an area in the Middle East situated between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. Palestine was absorbed into the Ottoman Empire in 1517 and remained under the rule of the Turks until World War One."

    The PROPERTY was forfeited to the British when the Turks were defeated in World War I.

    "Partition of the Ottoman Empire. The partition of the Ottoman Empire (Armistice of Mudros, 30 October 1918 – Abolition of the Ottoman Sultanate, 1 November 1922) was a political event that occurred after World War I and the occupation of Constantinople by British, French and Italian troops in November 1918."

    So the British OWNED Palestine. Conquerors keep the spoils of war. Just like the USA got the Central Bank belonging to Sadam.

    Then the British ALLOWED their property to be divided (by the UN) and given to "Israelis" and well as given to "Palestinians"

    Neither side has ANYTHING to bitch about.

    If I divide my Pizza and give pieces to two neighbors and leave the other neighbor out, no one has ANYTHING to say about ANYTHING.

    Whatever was given to Israel is theirs.

    Whatever was given to Palistinians is theirs.

    Anything that was taken from them by conquest is tough.

    What is so hard to understand?

    The whole thing shows how nice, sweet, tender and gentle the Israelis actually are.

    Do you have any idea of the life expectancy of a bunch of morons on the other side of ANY American border, that decided to launch rockets into America?

    Their life expectancy would be about 5 minutes, and that is only because the American Patriots would be taking extra time to kiss their wives goodbye.

    Whoever they were, America would CLEARCUT that country.

    We would never take any garbage from idiots that launch rockets at us.

    Neither should the Israelis.

    So Israel is a tiny country, about 60 miles wide in the middle and about 300 miles from North to South.
    It is dwarfed by all of its neighbors around it who have said that they will not be happy until they have driven Israel into the sea. If an Israeli F-16 takes off to counter defend from an air strike, it can be out of Israel in less than 4 minutes after takeoff. That's how small Israel is since they gave up territory to the Philistines. That doesn't give the pilot much time to decide what to do to defend his country.

      Israel Is NOT Victim · 19:59 11/11/2018
      Pat, you've drunk the John Hagee koolaid.

      Did you not read that Israel attacked and assassinated...they were NOT the victim.

      Don't be a Zionist shill. Political state of Israel is NOT the Israel of the Bible. God kicked them out of the land for their disobedience (several times.) And to this day, they will NOT receive His Son, Jesus. And the Bible clearly states that anyone that does not believe that Jesus is God's Son and that He came in the flesh IS antichrist.

      Israel continue to purge the Middle East of not only Muslims, but also Christians. So are you 'on board' with Israel as Christians are being purged?

        Anyone who does not believe Christ came in the flesh is of the A/C. 1John said that and he was not referring to the Jews. He was referring to Gnostic priests who returned to their pagan religions by trying to counter the gospel of God with their fairy tales b/c they did not understand the gospel. They said No God would come in the flesh b/c the flesh is sinful. So they spread the word referring to God as a phantasm that came only as a spirit. The land of Israel is the true land of the Bible. Israel is a democracy and loaded with all kinds of people. The Jews that returned are not in Biblical belief spiritually. The Bible says they will come to believe in the true Messiah when he appears the second time. Zech explains it in detail.

        you may not like Hagee but he's right. its true that most of the Israeli's are going to die in the coming war, but Jesus will defend a small remnant of a quarter million messianic jews and anyone else who the Lord knows will convert when the antichrist builds the temple and then declares himself God.

        As a Christian you need to SERIOUSLY read Ezekiel 38:17-38 again. We've done nothing to deserve God's grace or mercy. Neither has Israel. However, God made an eternal and unbreakable covenant with Abraham. God gave Abraham the land of Canaan as an everlasting possession. Genesis 17:8, and Genesis 48:4. God restores Israel in the latter days while they are still in a state of unbelief (Ezekiel 36) God is NOT doing it for their sakes, but for His Holy Name's sake.

          As a CHRISTIAN I know God made a NEW covenant and CLOSED the old one.
          Let's not forget it was Christ who cursed the fig tree ( Israel ) and prophesied it's destruction ( including the temple and it's walls ). Also he left it desolate.

          "christian.zionism" is a Satanic Cult . To claim they are going to "Build the THIRD Temple" is proof they know nothing of Christianity.
          To claim the Third Temple is yet to be built is to Deny Jesus Christ.
          Jesus "The LAMB of GOD" was the FINAL sacrifice (accepted by God) by the Temple Priests.
          Jesus "REARED UP" the Third Temple, HIMSELF, in three days, on Easter morning. JOHN 2:20 King James Bible "Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?"
          No matter how you look at it .... The THIRD Temple has already BEEN "built"
          Mathew 27:51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
          The Second (third?)Temple veil was DESTROYED as Jesus died, the LAMB of GOD sacrificed on the Cross, and the THIRD TEMPLE was "reared up" on the THIRD DAY, Easter Sunday. JESUS is the THIRD TEMPLE if you are a CHRISTian.
          and also .....
          Per Peloubet's Bible Dictionary 1925 there (ALREADY) were THREE physical Temples in Jewish history:
          FIRST Temple built by Solomon, for a little more then 400 years, from @ B.C. 1000 to B.C. 588. From Solomon to the Babylonian exile.
          SECOND Temple Zereubbabel's or the Temple of the Return, built with the aid of the Prophets Zechariah and Haggai, lasted nearly 500 years years, from it's completion B.C. 515 to B.C. 20. We see by the description of Ezra 6:3 that this Temple was about one third larger then Solomon's.
          THIRD Temple Herod's Temple lasting only @ 90 years from B.C. 20 to it's destruction by Titus, August A.D. 70. "JOHN 2:20 King James Bible “Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?”"
          The whole area or platform was called the Temple. Solomon made it about 600 feet square, containing 12 acres. This area ,according to Josephus, was nearly doubled when Herod built the THIRD temple.
          King Herod the Great spent 30 years refurbishing Zorobabel’s temple (the second temple) just in time for the coming of Christ, who not only prophesied that the temple would be destroyed — which is was in 70 A.D. by the 21-year-old Roman general Titus (son of Vespasian), but Christ also condemned all further Hebrew temple worship forever.

    Why is it whenever the Israelis get caught in their plot to assassinate someone, they always conjure up the excuses? They routinely downplay these assassinations with 'fake news' excuses:

    Kidnapping gone wrong;

    Intelligence gathering operation gone wrong.

    Next they will advocate that it simply was to exchange recipes...and that recipe exchange was mishandled and ended up in another operation gone wrong.

    Would someone then explain why they required IDF jets and helicopters to back them up...obviously an assassination plot FROM THE START.

    This is the most elaborated lie I've ever heard.
    The arabs all over the Middle East including the so called Palestinians where refused the UN plan and imidiatly decleared a war on Israel back on 1948 , against all the odds Israel where able to run away the attacks , Israel was with very few soldiers and weapons comparing to arabs.

    so go back to learn history before you spit your rubbish propaganda here

      Oh look! A MEGAPHONIE:
      That commenter on your blog may actually be working for the Israeli government

      Straight out of Avigdor Lieberman’s Foreign Ministry: a new Internet Fighting Team! Israeli students and demobilized soldiers get paid (with YOUR TAXES) to pretend they are just regular folks and leave pro-Israel comments on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and other sites. The effort is meant to fight the “well-oiled machine” of “pro-Palestinian websites, with huge budgets… with content from the Hamas news agency.” The approach was test-marketed during Israel’s assault on Gaza, and by groups like Give Israel Your United Support, a controversial effort to use instant-access technology to crowd-source Israel advocates to fill in flash polls or vote up key articles on social networking sites.

      Will the responders who are hired for this also present themselves as “ordinary net-surfers”?

      “Of course,” says Shturman. “Our people will not say: ‘Hello, I am from the policy-explanation department of the Israeli Foreign Ministry and I want to tell you the following.’ Nor will they necessarily identify themselves as Israelis. They will speak as net-surfers and as citizens, and will write responses that will look personal but will be based on a prepared list of messages that the Foreign Ministry developed.”

      "The Zionist version of the Palestinian exodus is a myth manufactured after the cataclysm took place. If the Zionists could show that the refugees had really fled without cause, at the express instructions of their own politicians, they would greatly erode the world's sympathy for their plight -- and, in consequence, the pressure on themselves to allow them to return. Thus in public speeches and scholarly-looking pamphlets they peddled this myth the world over. It was not until 1959 that the Palestinian scholar Walid Khalidi, exposed it for what it is. His painstaking researches were independently corroborated by an Irish scholar, Erskine Childers, two years later. Together, they demonstrated that the myth was not just a gross misrepresentation of accepted or even plausible facts; the very 'facts' themselves had been invented. Orders for the evacuation of the civilian population had not simply been issued, the Zionists said, they had been broadcast over Arab radio stations. One had come from the Mufti himself. This was the cornerstone of the Zionist case. Yet when these two scholars took the trouble to examine the record -- to go through the specially opened archives of Arab governments, contemporary Arabic newspapers and the radio monitoring reports of both the BBC and the CIA -- they found that no such orders had been issued, let alone broadcast, and that when challenged to produce chapter-and-verse evidence, the date and origin of just one such order, the Zionists, with all the apparatus of the State of Israel now at their disposal, were quite unable to do so. They found, on the contrary, that Arab and Palestinian authorities had repeatedly called on the people to stay put and the Arab radio services had consistently belittled the true extent of Zionist atrocities."
      —David Hirst, The Gun and the Olive Branch, Faber, 1977, pp. 136-7.

      "It is often said that the Arabs fled, that they left the country voluntarily, and that they therefore bear the responsibility for losing their property and their land. It is true that in history there are some instances — in Rome and in France during the Revolutions when enemies of the state were proscribed and their property confiscated. But in general international law, the principle holds true that no citizen loses his property or his rights of citizenship; and the citizenship right is de facto a right to which the Arabs in Israel have much more legitimacy than the [European] Jews. Just because the Arabs fled? Since when is that punishable by confiscation of property and by being barred from returning to the land on which a people’s forefathers have lived for generations? Thus, the claim of the Jews to the land of Israel cannot be a realistic political claim. If all nations would suddenly claim territories in which their forefathers had lived two thousand years ago, this world would be a madhouse. … I believe that, politically speaking, there is only one solution for Israel, namely, the unilateral acknowledgement of the obligation of the State towards the Arabs — not to use it as a bargaining point, but to acknowledge the complete moral obligation of the Israeli State to its former inhabitants of Palestine."

      - Eric Fromm. Jewish Newsletter [New York] (19 May 1959); quoted in Prophets in Babylon (1980) by Marion Woolfson, p.

        Sherlock, the amount of effort you put on your comments just reveal how desperate you are to change peoples clear sight about good and bad. This called propaganda. I'm not any of what you said I am, i'm following Hal's blog for just a year.


        For 50 years Radical Islam like Hamas, Jihad and Hizbullah has brought only killing and death to the world nothing more (forgot drugs selling).

        Please look around you and see what the tiny country of Israel has brought to the world in their 70 year of existence, yes including the processor of the computer you are using right now...
        No doubt the Arabs neighbors want to exterminate them, they are so envy about Israel being so successful while their leaders were stealing them these all years...

      Israel is recklessly subverting peace around the world in order to create a Zionist-centric, greater Israel.

      The Zionists won't allow peaceful coexistence as they demand hegemony...over the entire globe!

    Those "awful rockets"
    MANY MORE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED IN CAR ACCIDENTS .........
    A Wedding in Ashdod during the War with Hamas
    Posted by Mordechai Friedfertig at 10:06 AM
    [Question from Ha-Rav's radio call-in show from this week]
    Question: Is it permissible to travel to a wedding in Ashdod (in Southern Israel) which is in range of the Kassam and Grad rockets or is it forbidden based on the commandment of "You shall surely safeguard your soul" (Devarim 4:15, 23:11)?
    Answer: It is permissible. There is a clear distinction in Halachah between a high-probability danger and a low-probability danger. If this were not the case, we would not be able to travel in a car since every year, to our great distress, six hundred people are killed in car accidents in Israel. Many more people have been killed in car accidents since the establishment of the State of Israel than all of the Kassam rockets and all of the terrorist attacks and all of the wars, even when they are added together. We nonetheless travel in cars, obviously with the required cautions, since this is called "a non-frequent damage" in Halachah (Pesachim 8b). In our time there are statistical tools to verify the frequency of a danger. There is a halachic responsum on this subject by Ha-Gaon Ha-Rav Yitzchak Zilberstein, Rabbi of "Ramat Elchanan" (neighborhood in Bnei Brak). A student was learning in a yeshiva in "Yesha" (Yehudah, Shomron or Gush Katif) and his parents were concerned about the danger. Rav Zilberstein proves that "a frequent damage" is five percent. This means that if – G-d forbid – five percent of the students of the yeshiva were murdered, it would be forbidden to learn in that yeshiva. This is obviously far from reality - Baruch Hashem - since the Kassam and Grad rockets are not killing five percent of the population. In fact, Ha-Gaon Ha-Rav Yitzchak Isaac Herzog in Shut Heichal Yitzchak proves based on Shut Rabbi Akiva Eiger (#60) that a frequent danger is not five percent, but one in a thousand, but - Baruch Hashem - Kassam and Grad rockets are not killing one in a thousand people either.
    Furthermore, it is permissible to take a "small risk" for the sake of a mitzvah and bringing joy to a groom and bride is a mitzvah. The Tiferet Yisrael discusses this principle on the Mishnah in Massechet Berachot at the end of chapter one. There is a story about Rabbi Tarfon who said the Shema at night while reclining according to the view of Beit Shammai. He endangered himself while doing so and the Sages admonished him for following the view of Beit Shammai instead of Beit Hillel. But the question remains: Why did Rabbi Tarfon endanger himself, since reciting the Shema is not in the category of "Be killed and do not transgress," i.e. requiring one to sacrifice his life for its fulfillment? The Tiferet Yisrael explains that it was permissible since there was only a small risk of danger. There is an additional proof from when Rabbi Akiva was in jail, and he used the water he received for "netilat yadayim" (ritually washing his hands) instead of for drinking. The halachic authorities ask: How could Rabbi Akiva endanger his life for this practice? The answer is that Rabbi Akiva understood that he would obtain more water, the danger he was taking was extremely minute and it is permissible to take a small risk for a mitzvah. This is also the ruling found in "Pitchei Teshuvah" (Shulchan Aruch, Yoreh De'ah 157).
    In conclusion:
    a. A non-frequent danger is not considered a danger according to Halachah and the danger in Ashdod is a non-frequent one.
    b. It is permissible to take a minimal risk for a mitzvah and bringing joy to a groom and bride is a mitzvah.
    Mazel Tov!

    .Under General Assembly Resolution 273, Israel was admitted on the condition that it grant all Palestinians the right to return to their homes and receive compensation for lost or damaged property, according to General Assembly Resolution 194, paragraph 11.
    Suffice to say, Israel has never lived up to these terms.
    Israel's membership in the UN is therefore null and void.

    Israel was supposedly "attacked" by 3 Arab armies ----- NOT BY THE PALESTINIANS --- by OUTSIDE armies ..... Israel has NO, ZERO, ZIP business occupying PALESTINE The UN partition plan created two states, Israel and Palestine. David Ben Gurion rejected the UN plan and simply declared Israel to be in existence. The United States instantly recognized the new nation, whereupon Israel refused to recognize Palestine. It is at that point, the point where Israel refused to grant to Palestine that which Israel claimed for itself; a right to exist, that the other nations in the region refused to recognize Israel.
    Under international law, the Fourth Geneva Convention recognizes Palestinian resistance to the occupation as legitimate and legal, especially because the Israelis are deliberately transferring a civilian population into occupied territories, which legally makes every single Jewish settler a member of the occupying army and a legitimate target for the indigenous people of Palestine.
    Simply put, the UN Human Rights Council didn't "call out" the Palestinians or Hamas because under the terms of the Fourth Geneva Convention, what they're doing is legal and legitimate resistance to an occupying army... it's no different than what the French Resistance did during WW II. By contrast, everything Israel is doing is illegal."

    Gaza (along with the West Bank and East Jerusalem) is occupied Palestinian territory under international law, determined by the vast majority of the world, as well as the highest court in the world, the UN’s International Court of Justice. Gaza cannot commit aggression against Israel, since Israel is in constant and continual commission of illegal aggression against Palestine by occupying it (illegally and sadistically blockading it and frequently committing terrorism against its civilians, including by targeting them with chemical weapons provided by US taxpayers – see “Rain of Fire” by Human Rights Watch). As documented by Amnesty Int’l, Human Rights Watch, and many others, Israel intentionally targets and murders civilians, including children, en masse.


    Israel’s ability to frame its assault against territory it occupies as a right of self-defense turns international law on its head.
    A state cannot simultaneously exercise control over territory it occupies and militarily attack that territory on the claim that it is “foreign” and poses an exogenous national security threat. In doing precisely that, Israel is asserting rights that may be consistent with colonial domination but simply do not exist under international law.
    The precarious and unstable conditions in the Gaza Strip from which Palestinians suffer are Israel’s responsibility. Israel argues that it can invoke the right to self-defense under international law as defined in Article 51 of the UN Charter. The International Court of Justice, however, rejected this faulty legal interpretation in its 2004 Advisory Opinion. The ICJ explained that an armed attack that would trigger Article 51 must be attributable to a sovereign state, but the armed attacks by Palestinians emerge from within Israel’s jurisdictional control. Israel does have the right to defend itself against rocket attacks, but it must do so in accordance with occupation law and not other laws of war. Occupation law ensures greater protection for the civilian population. The other laws of war balance military advantage and civilian suffering. The statement that “no country would tolerate rocket fire from a neighboring country” is therefore both a diversion and baseless.
