New Gaza flareup: Four more Palestinian rocket volleys spark 15 Israel airstrikes

Gaza Palestinians violated their own ceasefire Saturday night, June 2, after just three days, making naught of Israel’s claim of deterrence.
For the latest round in their three-month offensive, the Palestinians Saturday night switched to a more frugal method: instead of letting dozens of single rockets loose across a wide swathe of southern Israel, they launched small volleys at their unfortunate neighbors. They calculated they could traumatize Israel unendurably no less than they did by last week’s massive rocket barrage, while economizing on rockets and laying in stocks for the long haul. And so on Saturday night, twin-rocket salvos hit Sderot, the Eshkol district, the Hof Ashkelon council and Shear Hanegev, sparking loud red warning sirens across the region up to Lachish. Iron Dome downed four.
Israel’s retaliation was immediate: air strikes against 10 Hamas military targets in the first round, followed by another five after dawn Sunday – most hitting factories turning out or storing weapons and ordnance and the Hamas naval compound on the Gaza shore. No casualties were reported by the Palestinians.
Only two days ago, after the Palestinians declared a ceasefire following Egyptian mediation, high-placed Israeli officials were saying “It will take them time to repair the fundamental damage we caused their military infrastructure,” and from the government: Israel will meet non-violence in kind. A senior IDF officer in a briefing to reporters explained that it was decided at the highest level to cut the Gaza operation short so as not to detract from the principal focus against Iran in the north.
In no time, this posture was proved untenable by two unpleasant doses of reality:

  1. The highest Israeli level, both government and military, is not in control of initiatives for Gaza flare-ups or ceasefires. Those decisions are in the hands of the chiefs of the Palestinian terrorist organizations Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the smaller fry – and their patrons.
  2. If the IDF shies from fighting an enemy on two fronts, how will it manage if the potential of conflagrations on three fronts materializes?
  3. The Palestinian “ceasefire” applied only to rocket and mortar fire. The violent assaults on the border fence, the rocks and bottle bombs hurled at soldiers, and the flaming kites consuming thousands of dunams of Israel farmland and nature reserves continued without pause.

DEBKAfile reported last Tuesday, May 29, when Palestinian rockets and mortars were flying hour after hour: “For now, they see no reason to change their mode of operation.” This still holds true. We also reported that the Palestinian wholesale terror campaign is the brainchild of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Al Qods Brigades and the Lebanese Hizballah. That too is still true and so it continues to go forward in well-calculated, professional stages. Since Palestinian terrorist groups were always better at propaganda than Israel, they have the edge in the international arena. They strike an especially strong chord in the circles opposed to the anti-Iran strategy conducted by President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. Those circles cheer the Palestinians on as the flames rise over the Israeli communities next door to the Gaza Strip.
Israel’s leaders have not come up with the right deterrence for halting the wave of Palestinian terror emanating from the Gaza Strip. Hence its recurrence time and time again.

    It is not necessary to kill them all. The Torah instructs us to drive them out and there are various ways to do this. Monetary incentives to encourage them to move to a different country are one of the best. Regardless of the noise you hear from some people, there are places for them to go. Many of the wealthy Arab nations will accept them.

    It is also possible to use loud noises such as bullhorns used on ships at sea to force them to leave the border fence area. I would also turn off their water and electricity every now and then. This will force the masses to make the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists leave. Most of the ones firing rockets and mortars will have to be eliminated by the IDF. This is the correct response in order to save Jewish lives. The Seven Laws of Noah prohibit murder and those who allow this to happen are guilty as well. This means that the entire population of Gaza is culpable for not stopping it.

    With each attack from Hamas, it would seem rational and prudent to respond with overwhelming destruction of every detectable military target, government emplacement and communications lines while avoiding civilians. This shows that while Israel won’t tolerate violence, it is not of the same despicable, murderous, hate filled and self serving ilk that Hamas is. Hamas is hateful and evil. Israelis are the good guys.

      @MR iVaN_RaSPuTiN_YaHu or MR_JeSuS or what ever you want to call yourself,

      Once you correct your grammar and finish regurgitating everything quoted completely out of context, here is a special message for you:

      iVaN, can you feel the tapping on your shoulder?
      Do you know what that is?
      iVaN, it’s one of your fellow patients in your ward who is waiting to get on that community computer because he wants to go on the SPONGE BOB website and iVaN, you need to take into account that what he wants to do on SPONGE BOB is just as important as what you’re doing here on Debka!

    From the Debka article:

    “The violent assaults on the border fence, the rocks and bottle bombs hurled at soldiers, and the flaming kites consuming thousands of dunams of Israel farmland and nature reserves continued without pause.”

    All of this being carefully ignored by the majority of the “international community”. What a sad day for a good portion of the civilized world only condemning the response to all of what is happening here.
    Those on the left of the political spectrum claim to be supportive of natural resources, nature reserves and forests. Reading the very last few words in the quote above, one would think that liberal progressives would all be protesting the fires in Israel being caused by the Palestinian “protesters” and terrorists, especially the fire attack against the nature reserve and logically, withdraw their support for the Palestinians who are literally committing crimes against nature as well as crimes against humanity by firing rockets at Israeli civilian communities.

      everything will be destroyed

      Woe is to the crown of the pride of the drunkards of Ephraim and the young fruit of an inferior fig is the position of his glory, which is at the end of a valley of fatness, crushed by wine.

      Behold God [has] a strong and powerful [wind], like a downpour of hail, a storm of destruction, like a stream of powerful, flooding water, He lays it on the land with [His] hand.

      With the feet, they shall be trampled, the crown of the pride of the drunkards of Ephraim.

      And his glorious beauty shall be the young fruit of an inferior fig, which is on the head of the valley of fatness; as a fig that ripens before the summer, which, if the seer sees it, he will swallow it while it is still in his hand.

      For he said to them, “This is the rest; give rest to the weary, and this is the tranquility,” but they would not listen.

      And the word of the Lord shall be for them a precept for a precept, a precept for a precept, a line for a line, a line for a line, a little there, a little there, in order that they go and stumble backwards and be broken, and be trapped and caught.

      …your treaty with death shall be nullified, and your limit with the grave shall not endure; when an overflowing scourge passes, you shall be trampled by it.

      .. and it shall be only terror to understand the message.
      For the bed is too short for one to stretch, and the ruler-it shall be narrow when he enters.

      And now, do not scorn, lest your pains become strong, for a complete destruction have I heard from the Lord God of Hosts upon the entire land.

    There is no easy solution – but it is simple – just blow the fuck out them. Kill as many filthy scum as you can , bulldoze the place wherever there’s been a rocket launching, etc. Gaza is mostly rubble anyway – so make a bit more. How can this go on? A change in approach has to happen. They are winning because of Israel’s “too soft” policy.

    Israel needs to begin Operation End Terror. This would entail an ongoing multifaceted campign of wratcheting up of strikes ( wihout warning). No ceasefires, no avoiding terrorist enclaves, homes and UN safe areas where missiles, terrorists and munitions are sheltered. This is war and half- measures are seen as weakness. This southern part of their war on Israel is being seen as a test bsloon by Iran as an example of how Israel fights and if compassion is Israel’s only modus operandi then that nonsense eill be exploited and Israelis eill die because of restraint ehen the other side is going full tilt.

    It is appalling to see Israel use missiles and weapons gifted by US taxpayers against Gaza civilians and kill many women, children and patients. Israel and Jews have no qualms on killing Palestinians, infact they in their heart will always remain the enemies of Muslims and want to kill all Palestinians. However InshAllah willing the final victory will be ours, when Mehdi will rise and unite all Muslims to launch a frontal attack from all sides on Israel till all the trees of Israel will inform the soldiers of Allah a Jew is hiding behind me, pls come and kill him.

      Suleiman Haq: Your antisemitic, anti-non-Muslim “religion” of conquest calls for death to Jews and death to infidels as you have acknowledged.

      So what do you expect people to do when confronted with Islam and its endless jihad and terror? Do you want us to say, “I am an infidel dear Muslim, come get me from behind this rock or tree and kill me because I am not worthy of your fake, violent, destructive creed”?

    Forget Khybar, remember Mosul, Rawalpindi, Homs.

    Do it Russian style for a change, they are a superpower so it must be okay? Time to fight an Arab like an Arab. Gaza does not protest against their own, because they know they will get decimated.

    Status quo has not worked, does not work, is not working. Change in paradigm is required, automate the defensive offensive capabilities. Let Gaza and the rest know that attacks against Israel, will produce a response far greater than the combined Arab armies.

    Once they know the scale of damage that would be incurred, they would not even begin to think about it, let alone act. This tit-for-tat approach has allowed this conflict to carry on for decades now.

    Imagine, what would happen if the shoe were on the other foot? Easy there would not be an Jews or Israel left, as the Arabs would have annihilated them irrespective of opinions.
