Rocket fire hustling Netanyahu from Ashdod rally – Palestinian propaganda gift to Iran & Hizballah

Israeli air strikes against 15 Hamas targets in Gaza overnight Tuesday, Sept. 10 did not rub out the scenes of prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Blue-White opposition leader Gaby Ashkenazi being whisked away from their election rallies in Ashdod and Ashkelon under rocket fire from Gaza. The Palestinian attack was accurately timed to cut short the two campaign speeches just as they began and depict the crowds in panicky flight, pointing to precise advance intelligence. Netanyahu returned to the stage a few minutes later, but the damage was done.

The Palestinian terrorist organizations in Gaza knew where, when and who would be staging these pre-election events. They did not aim to kill anyone this time, only achieve a striking propaganda coup against Israel’s top security figures. They also moved with unusual speed. In past instances, Palestinian rockets were usually aimed first at near targets before escalating in the next round to the cities further away from the Gaza Strip. This time, Ashdod and Ashkelon were targeted directly  before the usual preamble.
The Gaza terrorist groups followed the pattern of swift reprisal set by their allies, Iran and Hizballah, in Syria on Monday, Sept. 9, when the Shiite Imam Hossein militia fired two rockets at the IDF Hermon positions on the orders of their Al Qods officers, hours after an air strike in Iraq.
All these violent groups are pulling together, under Tehran’s baton, for a major effort to bring the Netanyahu government low and destroy voter confidence in the prime minister as guardian of national security in time for the Sept. 17 general election, The collective tactic for toppling the Likud prime minister was set forth, as DEBKAfile first revealed, at a secret summit in Beirut on Aug. 23 attended by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander Gen. Hossein Salami, Al Qods chief Gen. Qassem Soleimani and Hizballah’s Hassan Nasrallah.

Their strategy won a major propaganda coup for Tehran, Hizballah and Gaza on Tuesday night, when video clips beamed far and wide depicted security guards bundling Netanyahu off the Ashdod platform to the sound of wailing rocket alerts and an audience fleeing in all directions.

Israeli aircraft later struck some 15 Hamas terror targets in the northern and central Gaza Strip, including weapons workshops, several locations in the organization’s naval compound and a terror tunnel, in response to rockets fired from Gaza earlier.

In that response, however, Israel continued to pull its punches, still holding back on a major counter-offensive six days before the national election.

      I like that. I’ve found if you let a bully continue and don’t stop her fast, it always escalates. Derp on me, they figured that out over 2,000 years ago.

      Amen. Thank you for the WORD Steady Boy. Using Scripture to define a problem, and to find a solution, is the essence of:
      Trust in The Most High with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He shall direct your steps.

      Then deport all muslims to Jordon, Egypt, or Qatar and annex Gaza back to Israel. Then do the same with the West bank.

    Wait………………..everything’s OK………………………Egypt will broker another “cease fire” and will make Hamas promise to keep it (this time) and Qatar will double the “humanitarian aid” to Gaza which should keep things quiet for a very long time (of course).

    do Bibi and his 100 body guards are safe but what about the thousands who came to hear him? They certainly were not protected!

    This seems to be the point;

    Bibi is protecting him self and not the people. He bombs empty buildings (15!) and does not even injure one terrorist or terror supporter! Who needs a leader like this????

      I have to agree with Larry, We deserve better than this but what to do?

      Who to replace him with and will it really make a difference based are all questions that need to be asked.

      If Bibi were to just retire it would be clean but I think he would likely rather destroy the country out of spite than willing leave.

    The date, the hour, the location of the meeting was public knowledge. Hamas did not need any special skill and intelligence to know when and at what place to strike.

    “Bibi and his 100 body guards are safe but what about the thousands who came to hear him? They certainly were not protected!”

    @Larry,

    They likely went to the very same large community public shelter as Netanyahu went to.

    “He bombs empty buildings (15!) and does not even injure one terrorist or terror supporter! Who needs a leader like this????”

    @Larry,

    Unless you were actually “on the ground” in Gaza at all of those locations at the time of the Israeli military strikes, you actually have no way of knowing how many terrorists were killed or injured or what the status of those Hamas military targets were. Hamas’ and Islamic Jihads’ accounting of their losses are unreliable at the very least.

      Are you an idiot, they are protecting Netanyahu, but also are protecting the continuity of the Israeli government. Every National leader has a Secret Service to protect them. The US President has a small army of extremely well-armed agents to protect him. The real Propaganda gift would be if they managed to take out the Israeli Prime Minister, This entire post is actually a joke and pathetic something you can expect the Pallies to take their pride in.

    Ridiculous click bait. The Muslim countries and the Fake people calling themselves Palestinian are the only victims of their incessant, childish propaganda.
