Israeli air force bombs three symbols of Hamas rule in Gaza. Sderot home hit. Hamas offers truce

Israel’s major counter-terror operation in the Gaza Strip was confined in its early stage to air strikes against empty Hamas government buildings. DEBKAfile’s military sources note six features of the operation:
1. The air force alone is conducting this stage of the Israeli offensive with fighter jets, helicopters and drones. The boosted ground forces massed outside the Gaza border fence are being held back for a later stage depending on how the operation unfolds.

2.  Three Hamas internal security and intelligence command centers were struck in Gaza City as week as the Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh’s bureau. They had all be evacuated in good time after the iDF sent warning rockets as part of its ”knock on roof” policy for minimizing civilian casualties.

3. No Hamas casualties are so far reported, indicating the IDF is still keeping its counter-terror offensive law key.

4. Haniyeh’s bureau was struck as a message from the IDF that if the conflict is drawn out, Haniyeh and other high-ranking Hamas officials or commanders may be targeted in person.

5. Within short hours, Hamas and Islamic Jihad retaliated with a massive rocket barrage against Sderot, which knocked over a home. Their payback could extend to other parts of Israel during the night.

6. Following this attack, Hamas claimed a truce had been agreed, which Israel has not confirmed.

      The antisemitic squatters can’t do anything besides bomb with weapons provided thanks to the $10m/day welfare checks.

      They’re like prison guards who get their brains beaten in by prisoners.

          Are you talking about the fascist dictator’s fear-based response to bottle rocket fire?

          Safely drop bombs on bombed-out buildings from 10,000 meters because an attack would result in many dead squatters.

      The time to attack hamas is not when the rats hide in underground bunkers but in between when they are not firing rockets into Israel. And no more advance notice by Israel.

      Hamas always tries or claims to have a ceasefire what Israel retaliates after hamas lunches rockets. I do not know why Israel always falls for this and stops the retaliatory strikes.

      Throughout the last year with the escalation of violence on the part of hamas, Israel did nothing. hamas views this as weakness and continue to mount their Terror. Now it will take a much greater Israeli response to put an end to this Terror.

      And put it into it, they must. With a strong show of force, so hamas is no longer dictating terms.

      @jrcowboy49,

      Before June 1967, the residents of Gaza were known as “Egyptians”, not Palestinians and those of the so-called “West Bank” were known as “Jordanians”.

      Those who today call themselves “Palestinians” have their family clans originally from Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt, Libya, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region, not from Israel.

    Jihad only calls a truce (hudna) when they do not have the upper hand, part of the jihadi way of war. Appreciate Israel does not escalation, but this softly softly approach is good for the delicates in Europe, emboldens more jihad against Israel. Do not make any future dependant on the Europeans, they are already halfway bending and submitting within a decade or two. Understand where you are, and act according to what you are dealing with. ‘Do not spare the rod’ should be the mantra…

    Israel knocks out Hamas HQ and other empty buildings after warning them to evacuate. Who ever heard of giving the enemy time to escape before bombing their empty buildings? Israeli leadership must have their reasons, but I don’t get it. Hamas tries to kill Israeli civilians, Israel tries to avoid killing Hamas enemy. Makes no sense.

    Hamas is being spared by Israel because it suits Israel to have a Palestinian party that is in opposition to Fatah. Politics is a very dirty game and the Israeli public always pays a price. If Israel destroys Hamas, it means that Israel will then have no choice but to make peace with Fatah and hand over the West Bank. As long as Hamas is around, the excuse can be used that the Palestinians do not have their affairs in order due to rivalries and infighting so that Israel does not have a trustworthy group to negotiate anything peaceful with.

    The buildings bombed were empty because Israel warned them of the impending attacks; so Hamas leaders went to the nearest schools and hospitals to be safe. You can bet if the rockets continue by Hamas they will be attacked by ground troops and they will be searching for Hamas leaders. When was the last time Israel went into Gaza and chased out the rats; 2014?

      The “little Jew boys”, as you refer to, had very few aircraft and no drones at all in 1948………………..but they won against all odds.
      What’s really pathetic here is your post.
      Sounds like you’re still upset that the side you supported LOST WWII!
