Gaza warfront cannot be detached from Israel’s Syrian arena

By playing down the Hamas assaults from the Gaza Strip, Israel’s leaders hope to gloss over the IDF’s mounting involvement in two if not three battlefronts. The IDF has therefore long been restrained from hitting back hard for Hamas’ flaming kites and balloons. On Tuesday night, June 19, the Israeli Air Force strafed 25 Hamas structures, sparking a 45-rocket barrage against the Israeli communities around the Gaza Strip.

Following the same policy with regard to the Syrian front, Israel also held back from confirming the US disclosure that its warplanes early Monday, June 18, stopped the passage of Iraqi Shiite Kata’ib Hezbollah militia brigades into eastern Syria. DEBKAfile’s military sources name the chief of this militia as Qais al-Khazali, who serves under Iran’s Al Qods chief Gen. Qassem Soleimani, and is connected with the Lebanese Hizballah leader Hassan Nasrallah through the Iranian-Hizballah war room outside Damascus. This interaction came to light seven months ago, when Khazali was sighted touring the Lebanese-Israeli border in company of Nasrallah’s officers. His tour was planned to check the future positions of his Iraqi militiamen when they reached Lebanon from Iraq via Syria. At the time, the IDF, although registering the Iraqi militia chief’s presence on the border, decided not to target him then.
The urgent need to halt his militia’s passage into Syria on June 18 was not the only challenge facing the IDF. For nearly a week, the Syrian army and Hizballah have been massing a large force in southwestern Syria around Quneitra – opposite Israel’s Golan border – and Daraa – facing the Jordanian border. This buildup followed an announcement from Damascus of a forthcoming offensive to capture the two border regions from rebel hands. Until now, the Assad regime has not given the order to go forward, while waiting for Russian approval. However, when these troops do advance, neither Israel nor Jordan can afford to sit on their hands and allow two hostile armies to reach their borders.
This predicament was at the heart of the conversation Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu held with Jordan’s King Abdullah in Amman on Monday.
It is becoming increasingly evident that the Gaza and Syrian battlefronts are interactive. The argument that Hamas hopes by escalating the violence from Gaza to cash in economically to sustain its rule is old hat. It has been overtaken by events. The rockets, mortar shells, kites and balloons of recent days point at one objective: to pile on Israel an extra active war front and so force the IDF to divide its strength between the two arenas. Therefore, the challenge of a multiple-front war has become a reality for Israel’s armed forces. How this could have been prevented is no longer relevant. The IDF must now concentrate on grappling with the various fronts and organize its priorities in the best way possible. For now, the the aggression from Gaza continues to be relegated to a secondary challenge compared with Syria. And so, on Tuesday night, Israeli air strikes continued to bomb empty Hamas buildings after Hamas and other Palestinian terrorists had a chance to escape harm; while Hamas, for its part, is still confining its rocket and mortar volleys to nearby Shear Hanegev, Eshkol district and Hof Ashkelon councils, causing damage but no casualties. Those populations were advised the next day to send their children to school and keep to their usual routines.
At the same time, Israel’s government and military leaders are under no illusions. An escalated level of military clashes in Syria will bring forth a heightened threat from the Gaza Strip. The rockets will be more precise and of longer range for reaching populations outside the immediate neighborhood, including the southern cities of Ashkelon, Ashdod and Beersheba or further north. Maybe it would be preferable for the IDF to prioritize the task of smashing Palestinian war capabilities in the Gaza Strip now before the Syrian front spirals into a major showdown.

    From the Debka article:

    ” An escalated level of military clashes in Syria will bring forth a heightened threat from the Gaza Strip. The rockets will be more precise and of longer range for reaching populations outside the immediate neighborhood, including the southern cities of Ashkelon, Ashdod and Beersheba or further north. Maybe it would be preferable for the IDF to prioritize the task of smashing Palestinian war capabilities in the Gaza Strip now before the Syrian front spirals into a major showdown.”

    Would it be too much to ask Hamas to relocate all of the advanced missile components (supplied by Iran) away from populated civilian areas in Gaza prior to any preemptive strikes by the Israelis to take those advanced systems out? This is assuming that Hamas is not using those civilians as pawns and actually cares about the people under their control. The Hamas “leadership” (for forwarding that request to) can be reached deep inside the sub basement bunker directly underneath that major hospital in Gaza City where, in times of war (started by them in the first place), they all hide to keep themselves ONLY out of harm’s way.

    • Jun 20, 2018 @ 11:41 at 11:41

      The above mentioned hospital is now experiencing shortages of medical grade helium. The UN Human Rights Council may well consider condemning Israel for the shortage of helium since it’s shipped to Gaza from Israel and the UNHRC can’t figure out where all of that helium is going to after it crosses the border into Gaza so they will likely conclude that it must be Israel’s fault for not supplying more of it to Gaza.

      • Jun 20, 2018 @ 16:13 at 16:13

        Shortage of Helium ? It could be produced by 1st grade student , in about time it takes to prepare a coffee.

            He meant to say H2, not He.
            Hydrogen and helium are the most commonly used lift gases. Although helium is twice as heavy as (diatomic) hydrogen, they are both significantly lighter than air, making this difference negligible. The lifting power in air of hydrogen and helium can be calculated using the theory of buoyancy as follows:

            The density at sea-level and 0 °C for air and each of the gases is:
            Air (ρair) = 1.292 kg/m3 = 0.0807 lb/ft3.
            Hydrogen (ρH2) = 0.090 kg/m3
            Helium (ρHe) = 0.178 kg/m3
            The amount of mass that can be lifted by hydrogen in air at sea level is 1.202 kg/m3
            The amount of mass that can be lifted by helium in air at sea level is 1.114 kg/m3
            Thus hydrogen’s additional buoyancy compared to helium is 8% more.

    Hamas/Hezbollah/Iran are playing with fire. They obviously hope to overwhelm the IDF and overrun the southern/northern borders and they obviously believe that international pressure is enough to force Israel to stand idly by and allow it to happen.
    But they need to ask themselves, what if the IDF won’t let itself be overwhelmed? What if instead, if the threat grows too large, Israel pulls out the “big guns”?
    So far Israel is following a policy of “pushing back” the threatening forces, but if that policy turns out to be insufficient, Israel ***will not*** allow its people and homeland to be overrun.

      They come from a distant land, from the end of the heavens; the Lord and the weapons of His fury, to destroy all the land.
      …Behold, the day of the Lord is coming, cruel with wrath and burning anger, to make the land desolate, and its sinners He shall destroy from it.

    From Debka’s Headline News:

    “DEBKAfile reports that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Jordan’s King Abdullah, when they met in Amman on Monday, devoted most of their conversation to the problems raised by Iran’s military presence in Syria – especially opposite both their countries’ borders. They also shared their concerns over the Syrian army concentrations in southern Syria. The ground for the visit was laid last week when King Abdullah recalled Jordan’s ambassador from Tehran and abstained from appointing a replacement.”

    Just recently, Jordan’s King Abdullah joined the Arab League in condemning Israel’s “treatment of the Palestinians” during Israel’s defense of its border with Gaza.
    Now that the situation in Southern Syria is heating up with Jordan’s border being compromised, who does King Abdullah turn to in his time of need for assistance in saving his butt————————-ISRAEL!

    I would say that it is time for war because that is what Hamas has been asking for by repeatedly attacking Israel. War is what Israel is engaging in with respect to the buildup of Islamic terror forces in Syria,

    Is it that difficult to issue an ultimatum to the Terrorstinians to stop their war now or face extinction and massive retaliation without notices this time?

    These fascist murderous beasts who use their women and children as human shields do not deserve the kindness given to them by Israel until they stop war, disband their forces and give up on their objective to wipe out Israel and Jews. Period.

    When you bomb empty cars you are telling your enemies and the world that you don’t think yourself worthy of the life you have.
    When you call ahead so humanoids can vacate a target before destroying it you are telling your enemies and the world that no matter what they do to you, you are afraid of hurting their feelings.
    You are just another pitiful example of the guy who goes through life with a sign that says “I’m not gonna fight you no matter what you do to me”
    You are only ones who don’t seem to get this.
    Or . . . you are trying really hard not to see reality and understand it properly so you can continue to cling to the thoroughly ineffective notion that if only Israelis can be more papist than the pope and transform yourselves into the epitome of the warrior with the kid’s gloves who is a mixture of sociologist and nun, all with a leftist slant (of course) can you earn the love of all the Jew-haters, out there.
    And in the meantime not only are you begging your enemies for a 2nd Holocaust but you are training generations of Israelis to turn around, drop trousers and bend over at the first Jew-hating insult they hear. Because apparently that is the leftist politically correct attitude. Oh, yeah!!
    The fakestinian cannibals use the helium YOU provide them with to burn Israel to the ground and what does Israel in return? Send their way balloons with candy. You can’t make this stuff up. Only Jews.
    This is masochism.

    Talk of a two front conflict for the IDF to execute is nothing new. It’s been that way for decades. The reality is, a split operation is far more achievable in a nation the size of Israel. Power Projection becomes an issue when a nation faces two enemies with a huge geographical distance between battlefields. WWII and the US is the example. Huge support requirements, thousands of miles apart. This issue doesn’t limit the IDF. the ability to conduct Force Generation from a single location and then deploy them a short distance is easily accomplished.

    This landmass issue is a duel edged sword. The real limitation faced by the IDF is Defense in Depth. with a nation as small as Israel, the ability to execute a conflict on Israeli soil is extremely limited. The ability to move their population to a safe zone is extremely limited. This is the issue that has made Israel move to the offensive and seize territory in a conflict. In a nation of Israel’s size, they must create the battlefield on the soil of the enemy, not on Israeli land.

    So what does this mean? It means that when the IDF moves to neutralize the threat from Iran and Hezbollah in Southern Syria, they will do so with the intent to keep the conflict on Syrian land. The huge question becomes, does the IDF gain permission to naturalize Hezbollah in Lebanon? If I was in Lebanon, I would be very…..very….worried about the Southern Syrian event. Perhaps that was the issue reviewed with Moscow and DC?

    If Israel deals with gaza, and the iranians help their ally, and attack Israel that would be A solid justification for war in the media. If they do nothing, A threat probably tasked with making trouble, all over Israel including Judea and Samaria, is dealt with. Although if Israel goes into gaza, criticism against Israel might be very great, which may cause Israeli leaders to feel they have lost consent to preemptively attack syria. I am not concerned about western criticism of Israel, and think lives should be saved by going into gaza first, allowing western criticism to reach A fury, and then spitefully attack syria and lebanon if need be. The criticism would be A good opportunity to teach the Israeli people through the Israeli media that the western media pretends outrage against Israel, not allowing Israel to carry out missions, perpetually undermining it, unlike the americans and the europeans who are not criticized in the media as they proceed from one task to another when they are fighting in the middle east. In G-d I trust.

      Israel makes every attempt to increase Humanity of Saving Lives by sending warnings we know where the attacks are coming from and destruction of property and can destroy property in Gaza as well. However, at some point Patience, Tolerance, and Continues Offers of Talks for Cease and Desist for Peace are always preferred before taking One or Many Human Lives. Property, Buildings, and Agriculture can be given Repairs, Rebuilding, and Regrown. Nevertheless, it up to PLO. Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iranians to decide when to stop promoting attacks that keep taking Lives but Israeli’s thinks and will only take Lives in Defense. Only Israel when required to try and save others and end attacks uses such force. Meanwhile Iranian’s Proxy’s, Hezbollah urging others to commit suicides, and Hamas hiding behind Gaza Citizens as Shields? As well as, all 4 rewarding such behavior and then misinforming the World excusing their own Inhumane Actions Behavior as if it is Noble?

    Time to take the gloves off. There’s a wolf at the door, an implacable Persian enemy and it’s extremist allies, none who shies from inhumane war crimes.

    The Jews should utterly destroy the military threat in Gaza before Iran and Hezbolah are ready in the North. Otherwise it’s going to be orders of magnitude more difficult to fend off all-out attacks coming from every direction.

    I sent e-mails to PM Netanyahu and Defense Minister Lieberman and they did not respond to me. The IDF should use fog horns like those on cargo ships to stop the enemies of Israel from advancing in Gaza and the northern border. These horns can be heard for miles at sea to warn approaching ships that they are getting too close. When the volume of these devices is turned up and used at shorter distances it can rupture a human ear drum. The noise can also cause other problems for humans and will easily disburse large crowds. All the IDF has to do is set up some of these close to the border fence and turn them on. I guarantee that the Arabs will run the other way in a big hurry.
