Second Hamas infiltration from Gaza – this time armed for terror

Three Hamas terrorists managed to breach the Gaza-Israeli security fence on Tuesday, March 27 for the second time in three days. This group was armed with grenades and knives. It managed to cover a distance of 20km and reach the big IDF Tzeelim base, before it was finally discovered and stopped.
The IDF spokesman had only this to say: The Palestinian infiltrators’ tracks were picked up near the border fence and followed by police trackers and sappers, who reached the gate of Tseelim in time to prevent an attack. The soldiers used a robot to defuse the grenades. The incident ended without casualties. However, hard questions are being asked, according to DEBKAfile’s military sources, about the IDF’s second major security fiasco in a week in its task of safeguarding the Gaza border against terrorist incursions. The military and police are deeply immersed in massive preparations to counter the “March of Millions” threatened by the Gaza’s Hamas rulers next Friday. But Hamas is stealing a march on Israel’s security forces, catching them by surprise before that date. On Sunday, a Hamas commando squad sabotaged the army’s counter-tunnel equipment. On Tuesday, an armed terrorist came within a hair’s-breadth of a full-scale terrorist attack on one of the IDF’s biggest bases in southern Israel. Tuesday, the Barzilai hospital in Ashkelon was put on a state of preparedness for an influx of casualties – both IDF service personnel and Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

    How is it possible, even conceivable for those islamic poisonous insects to actually succeed in getting through fences to attack unguarded IDF equipment?
    Why isn’t Israeli electronic surveillance and security equipment immediately detecting these terrorist attacks?
    Are we back in the Middle Ages depending on tracking footprints 20km all the way to an IDF base?
    These failures are very encouraging to murderous evil enemies.

    Put hungry wild pigs in the tunnels and they never came back.

    Indeed there are holes in Israel’s security systems. These discoveries have come in good timing as Israel prepares for future conflicts. It may be a cause of alarm but is to Israel’s advantage as they will now surely correct these errors.

    Execute any infiltrators captured after interrogation.

    Iran’s Soleimani of Al-Qods and IRGC brigades along with Hezbollah are testing a few different techniques in Gaza besides just rockets which he said were not enough. What Israel has to realize is that Hamas will be planning on using these techniques on a larger scale in the future. Hezbollah has a clever way of faking rocket launch signals in order to confuse any anti-missile system with phony launches mixed in with real ones. The only solution Israel has is the total destruction of its enemies or else they will survive to rearm themselves better to fight another day. You have many different terrorist groups trained and funded by Iran to do its dirty work across the Middle East so that Iran can sit back and stay safe far away from where these groups operate. So far, the Russians are the most potent air force group in Syria that Iran has hired with Obama’s nuclear deal money. The Syrian opposition needs MANPADS in order to deal with this threat.
