Hamas-Gaza amasses 10,000 rockets, plans a new Iran-sponsored militia in Syria

Israel’s Chief of Staff Lt, Gen. Aviv Kochavi said on Friday, June 8: “The slowdown of Hamas-instigated violence on the Gaza border, including the incendiary balloons, is the outcome of an equation reached with Hamas on the operational level and we have decided to give it a chance.” He was talking to heads of the southern communities on the eve of the Shavuot festival.
The general was understood to have introduced a new formula, whereby the IDF would be running statistics on the terrorist attacks coming from the Gaza Strip, including single rocket shots, riots on the Gaza border and incendiary balloons. If they exceed the figures registered with the high command and the defense minister, Israel would again restrict the Palestinian fishing zone off the Gaza shore from 15 miles to 10 miles and maybe retaliate in other ways.
Kochavi had nothing to say about the Palestinian terrorist organization’s perception of this “equation.” The most important missing factor in his words was the area it covers: It is apparently limited to the Gaza Strip, whereas DEBKAfile’s intelligence and military sources reveal that Hamas’ live-wire military leader Yahya Sinwar is deep in a venture to expand its turf much further afield, while also in advanced negotiations for more Iranian funding and a large injection of arms.

Using the Israeli-Hamas “equation’ with Israel as a respite, intensive four-cornered discussions are secretly underway among Tehran, Syrian president Bashar Assad, Gaza and Hizballah’s Beirut leaders for Hamas, firstly, to extend recognition to the Assad regime in Damascus and open an embassy there under the Hamas flag. If these discussions mature into an accord, Hamas will boast its first diplomatic mission in an Arab capital.

Our sources add that this accord will further cover the establishment in Syria of a new Palestinian militia some 3,000 strong, designed for launching attacks into northern Israel. This militia will operate under the joint command of Hizballah and Hamas’ military arm, the Ezz e-Din Al-Qassam, in close teamwork with Hamas-Gaza.  

Meanwhile, neither Egypt nor Israel has been able to prevent Hamas and the Islamic Jihad from boosting their arsenal to approximately 10,000 rockets – either by local production or smuggled in by sea and through Egyptian Sinai.

It is worth noting that Gen. Kochavi did not cite a timeline for the “equation” he unveiled on Friday; nor what can be expected when it runs out. Neither did he refer to the monetary price exacted by Hamas or who was putting it up. Qatar after forking out generous sums for months has applied the brakes; the pauses between one payment and the next are growing longer.

Hamas, however, is looking in a new direction for a source of cash, aiming to gain control of the $360 million in international funds earmarked for rebuilding the Gaza Strip. The purse strings for this fund are held by the UN special coordinator for Middle East peace Nickolay Mladinov.

    Iran needs to be put on notice that military strikes on Israel from contiguous countries supplied with missiles, bombs, logistics, and support from Iran will bring swift action on Iran as they are the instigator and driver of these nefarious military activities.

        Pro-Pal-e-SWINIAN Eurotrash should offer land in Eurabia for Pal-e-SWINE.

    “10,000” – just a number.
    “1” hydrogen bomb = MUCH more than “10,000” primitive little barbarian rockets.

      Yes, it is. I agree with Bibi’s reticence though. Full on war is going to wreck the country and economy – plus once it starts there’s always the unintended consequences. I believe Bibi knows first hand through his own experience with losing his brother, what the weight of command means. Sending peoples sons and daughters to battle is never to be taken lightly Vs threats to civilians, etc. Sometimes you can never make the right decision. And we here, dont really know anything about what is really going on in the background. we can guess. Its a balancing act, I think.

    It does not matter what you call the terrorists (Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, etc.) or whom they work for (Syria, Iran, Qatar, Syria, Iran, Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Saudi, etc.) they are all Islamic and therefore against the infidel, against Jews and against all non-believers or believers in Islam who might want to just live in peace and improve the lives by ending destruction of their coreligionists through a hateful cult of violence.

    Why is Israel allowing arms to be shipped to Gaza? Why are they not bombing the shipments? This non-stop transfer of arms to Gaza is fueling a deadly conflict and bad outcome for Israel. The Hamas terrorists have always gone back and forth from Gaza to ISIL to Hezbollah to Al Qaeda and to whatever terror organization that will pay them for an ideological and terror war against the free world and non-believers.

    Panic Time On Tehran Shiia Throne:
    Once again, the Shiia Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei with his Anti-Islamic Peace Servant General Safavialong, made Blood-Curdling Threats towards, “American Navy & Zionists”, with an “Unimaginable Reciprocal Blows, and Iran Is Stronger Than All Its 15 Neighbors, Except Russia, as Tehran and Moscow have joined an Alliance in the Middle East”, but failed to add any evidence to back his claim.

    The above declaration :”Comments containing incitement, libel or offensive language are barred under DEBKAfile’s regulations” by DEBKAfile really has no relevance, and because of this no serious discussion can be had in these comment pages. This denigrates the the perception of DEBKAfile as a pertinent commentator.
    If any clown is allowed to write slanderous or offensive comments, how can we take this site as serious?

    As iran is so far from from Israel I would think its difficult for them to hit iran. I certainly dont want the Iranian people to suffer, only the leadership and army. Would be great if Israel could work out a way to knock out all their defenses. Blow them away like they have done in Syria. Leave them without any way of defending against aerial attack..that might be nice to see. Difficult, but nice. Might send the scum a good message.

    Iran’s Shiia Persian Nation in surrounded by Middle East Nations not at the Expense of Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Tehran’s Non-Aggression Pact with Neighbors has been rejected. Iran’s threat to destroy Israel is just another “Haman Hanging Boomerang”, coming back on Iranian Shiia Leadership. Ever growing Weaponized Innovations with Surveillance and Surgical Strikes will Divide Persia already weakened without regard to National Sovereignty. Iran’s Multiple Cultures will seek Opportunities for Independence and not support Iranian Resistance breaking up Iran as it was done many times in History.
