Hamas’ non-reprisal for IDF Gaza operation meets Egyptian, UN requests
The IDF halted its counter-terror air operation in Gaza early Saturday after Hamas, in the absence of casualties, responded to Egyptian and UN requests to hold back a large-scale retaliatory rocket barrage against Israel. Israel’s air strikes against 50 Hamas terror targets purposely kept to empty buildings to avoid loss of life, except for initial casualties caused in the first IDF reaction to the death of an Israeli soldier from Hamas sniper fire. The IDF spokesman reported the destruction of three Hamas battalion command compounds in Zaitun, Al Burej and Khan Younis, as well as two tunnels and an ammunition dump in “heavy” air bombardment Friday night. DEBKAfile’s military sources report a measure of hyperbole in descriptions of the operation. In reality, volleys of airborne missiles flattened empty buildings.

what a joke.
Has been said before: Impotent and Cowardly Israeli “leadership” – a laughing stock for the bunch
of two-legged rats from Gaza !
Hamas’s non-reprisal? Give us a break. Hamas, as always, start and Isreal responds. That it ended there was not a case of Hamas not responding. It was Hamas chickening out and Israel foolish enough to let Hamas live for another day of mayhem and infamy.
Bomb the empty banks at night
The petrol stations
Civil admin buildings
Just do it all in one night
No loss of life
But Hamas will have one tough morning
Soon would be good
Like after next kite
