Hamas Violates Ceasefire as IDF Thwarts Major Terror Attack
Why does Israel even try to negotiate with terrorists?
Check it out:
Jihadi militants fired rockets into the Ehkol area in Israel at approximately 12:20 p.m. local time, seemingly violating the 5-hour ceasefire Hamas had agreed upon between 10am-3pm so humanitarian workers could deliver aid to Gaza. The IDF blames Hamas for the incident.
Earlier Thursday, thirteen Hamas jihadis snuck into Israel’s sovereign territory from an underground tunnel in Gaza, reportedly carrying automatic rifles and RPG rocket launchers. The IDF released a video that showed they were driven back after Israeli forces targeted their location. Hamas maintains that all of its fighters returned back to Gaza. The IDF said it had wounded a number of them.
The Egyptian foreign minister said that a potential Israel-Hamas ceasefire continues to “gain momentum” to stop the “intolerable humanitarian situation in Gaza.”
“The plan has been widely endorsed by the Arab League, it has been endorsed by the European Union… and it continues to gain momentum in terms of recognition,” said the Egyptian foreign minister.
While we held our fire, Hamas terrorists fired 3 mortars that hit the Israeli community of Eshkol minutes ago.
