Israel air strikes continue after death of Hamas military chief Ahmed Jabari. Hamas: Itís war
Debka ^ | 11/14/12

Posted on 11/14/2012 8:23:28 AM PST by Dave346

After confirming the death of Ahmed Jabari, commander of Hamas’s military arm, Ezz e-din al-Qassam, Hamas announced: We are now at war with Israel. Jabari, 52, was killed by a targeted Israeli air attack in Gaza City. A key figure in the radical Palestinian Hamas movement, he was caught driving in a black Mercedes in Gaza City. Hamas has announced a general call-up and threatened to respond not just with rockets but suicide attacks. Israeli sources say the air operation called Pillar of Cloud is underway against more Hamas leaders and its military infrastructure and rocket stocks across the Gaza Strip until peace is restored to southern Israel. debkafile’s military sources report that southern Israeli is on high alert in expectation of a furious Hamas reprisal for the loss of its leading terror strategist. Areas such as Gedera and Gan Yavneh which have escaped most missile attacks may now be targeted. Israel may also expect repercussions from Cairo since Jabari was a favorite of the ruling Muslim Brotherhood and his death occurred the day after Egypt brokered a ceasefire in the missile offensive from the Gaza Strip. That “ceasefire” was violated Wednesday with five Grad rockets against the Eshkol district.

Looks like the Israel / Hamas war is heating up now. Not surprised Hamas waited until after the election for their latest offensive.

That is such a revealing few sentences.

Egypt negotiates a missile ceasefire. Hamas breaks the agreement within 24 hours.

Israel retaliates.

The Brotherhood is mad at Israel and they'll retaliate.

Is that not insanity???

Isreal needs to level Gaza. Totally and inform Hamas that the war will be concise and complete devastation.

You are exactly right, when hasn’t Hamas been at war with Israel. At least Israel knows how to respond to enemies.

Israel has been around for 5000 years. They’ve endured bondage and slavery. And after being dispersed around the world for 2000 years, they reappeared as one people once again on the banks of the Jordan. They’ve endured Egyptian Pharoes, Roman Emperors, the Muslims and the Nazis. The eight years of Obama will be but a blink of an eye to them. I’ve been to Israel and have seen the wall that Ariel Sharon put up despite the demands of the world to tear it down. They’re once again taking matters of their own liberty and security into their own hands.

All too typical of the Jihadis. They are offended by anyone who fights back.

Similar to the ‘Rats here in the US.

Gaza should be made into a parking lot. Systematically tear down every dwelling and send the occupants to Saudi Arabia.

Unlike some US military leaders, Israel’s leaders have their sights set on the right targets.

Have you ever read the Hamas charter?

It calls for the elimination of Israel and the extermination of the Jews.

Note to Israel: Don’t let this be your Vietnam... Fight to win. Make post-war meaningful.
