Israel ready for ground operation in Gaza: tanks and artillery pulled together to the border of the enclave


The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is gaining momentum. Thus, the press secretary of the Israel Defense Forces, General Khidai Zilberman, announced that on May 13, plans for a ground operation in the Gaza Strip would be presented to the General Staff. Then they will be brought to the attention of the political leadership of Israel.


Additional combat units of the Israeli army were deployed to the border of the enclave: troops of the Golani motorized infantry brigade, the 7th Saar mi Golan tank brigade, artillery and special forces. IDF Spokesman Jonathan Conricus announced its readiness to invade Gaza at a briefing.

The army command considered various options for the operation, the final decision will soon be made by Chief of General Staff Aviv Kohavi.

According to media reports, in the last XNUMX hours the Israeli army intensified its shelling of the Palestinian territories and the military facilities of Hamas and Islamic Jihad located there. The IDF informs in advance about the place and time of the missile attacks so that the residents of the area can evacuate.

    I do not believe. I think this is pressure on Hamas. In the most extreme case, the northern part of the sector will be cut off. A ground operation doesn't make sense. We'll see.

      you have a batch inside the perimeter. it is necessary to divert attention from such a wise leadership. the outer perimeter for such cases is what you need.

      I'm even afraid to imagine what the Semites would write to us - if our Muslims began to do this in our days in the Caucasus or in Tatarstan.

      They would probably dance the same way. Can you imagine the Russians dancing against the backdrop of the burning mosques of the Muslims? We are from a different test with you. Our faith does not allow us to behave this way - against the backdrop of a burning shrine of a foreign culture. It's game for us. And it’s game for our delegation to travel along Shukhevych Avenue in Kiev. And yours is fine.

      Although everyone's blood is the same color, but what we are all different.

        Jews in front of the wailing wall on the day of Jerusalem dance and rejoice at the holiday. It is not the mosque that is on fire, but the cypress, which caught fire as the Arabs threw firecrackers on the site in front of the mosque.
        We are really from a different test ...

          They - Israelis, killing, destroying everything on this territory "create" their own - the state!
          This is exactly how the visiting ub.yudki, bandits and exiles gathered in North America to destroy the indigenous Indians, created the bandit state of the United States. How the Turks "creating" the Great Ottoman Empire destroyed and today they are destroying, massacring Armenians, Greeks, Bulgarians. And if they were not "hindered" and did it today Hmm..the current Israelis have learned a lot from the German fascists ... and adopted their behavior. And now they are doing the same as the German fascists did with them!
          it has a name - GENOCIDE!
          My father and my maternal grandfather participated in the Great Patriotic War ... my grandfather returned from the war only in 1947 and took part in the Soviet delegation at the Nuremberg Trials. He said that when talking with the former fascists, they said and believed that the Nazis were doing the RIGHT thing.
          Israelis today will find a bunch of self-excuses for killing others FOR THEIR PURPOSE!

    When the IDF was in Gaza, everything was calm. Gaza and Israel lived a peaceful life. But the world community decided that even better would be better than good. And she convinced Israel that he would withdraw his troops from Gaza to the last soldier, liquidate their settlements to the last settler, then the border will be as peaceful, as quiet as (literally) "between Belgium and Holland." The troops were withdrawn, the settlements were liquidated. And we have what we have. Only rockets with a range of 250 km. and warheads of 100 kg. each launched under 2000 pieces across Israel. And from Gaza to Tel Aviv - 70 km. There are only a few kilometers to the southern cities of the coast. They launch long-range missiles from underground mines, not from the knee, as Kasama used to do. 130 pieces at a time, and at different levels. To overcome our air defense. Israel endured, endured to the last. And finally he answered. Only after an open attack, and simultaneously with the fifth Arab column inside the country. Once again, Israel is trying to break and destroy. But this time the Hamas terrorists have clearly gone overboard. And they crossed the red line. There is a real chance to break the back of terrorism in Gaza. Hel Aavir has fulfilled its task: production facilities, missile silos and partially rocket launchers are destroyed. Together with the terrorists and part of their leadership. The most important barmaley, together with their families, sit out in Qatar. Now we need a cleanup and new realities. A ground operation is indispensable. Which is what is happening now. Let's remember the predictions and wishes of characters like Volga that our "Merkavas" burn like candles. Not chatter is the criterion of truth, but practice. Let's remember this post when it's over. The Jews of Israel are united as always in a moment of danger. Netanyahu analyzed the situation very clearly and harshly when speaking before the Knesset. The enemy will be defeated. And only the complete surrender of Hamas in Gaza and the disarmament of terrorists will suit Israel. And less, no, no.

        I don't know what the US will say. They probably won't consult with me, and with you either.
        There are facts. The US State Department was not going to vote for the formation of Israel on May 14, 1948. Only the direct intervention of Harry Truman at the suggestion of Chaim Weizmann turned the tide. In the wars of 1948-1949, 1956,1967, 1956, the United States did not support Israel and did not supply it with weapons. Were not his main economic partner. Do not confuse the US Jewish aid to Israel with the US position. For example, in the XNUMX Suez Company, Washington took an openly hostile stance towards Israel. In The Six Day War, President Lyndon Johnson told Abe Eban, "Don't go it alone and you won't be alone." Israel acted on its own, and during the war, it also sank a reconnaissance ship.
        US Navy Liberty. During the "Doomsday" war, the states until October 8 dragged on the supply of weapons to Jerusalem. The Obama administration has been openly hostile to Israel. So, Israel will not look back at the United States. At the UN and even more so. The UNGA resolution is only advisory in nature.

          The UN Security Council this week has already held two closed meetings on this issue in a virtual format, but the United States is the only one blocking the adoption of a statement on the situation in the zone of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

            Is not a fact . The meetings were closed. I do not think that France, the Russian Federation, or other members of the UN Security Council particularly resisted. And they demanded a ceasefire. Otherwise, their position would have been voiced in a harsh manner. As Soviet Russia did in 1967 or 1973. Here, for example, Erdogan, recently phoned VVP. He offered to introduce Turkish-Russian peacekeepers, as in Karabakh. The Russian Federation did not agree to this. Israel is allowed to finish off the beast in its lair. Read Netanyahu's speech in the Knesset. It is more than understandable: until we finish off, we do not disarm the terrorists, we will beat them. Neat and painful. By the way, Bibi said in that speech that no one is a decree to Israel. This is not a whipping boy like Serbia or Armenia.

      I remembered the words of the song from the Ryazanov comedy: "We do not sow, we do not plow, we do not build - we are proud of the social system ..." And today there is no such dubious reason for pride - sadness, however. The whole world considers Israel's actions to be legitimate, only Muslim extremists approve of the shelling of residential areas and the murder of the civilian population of the Jewish state. By the way, not only Jews are killed, among the victims of Arab terrorists are Bedouins - a 52-year-old father and his 16 daughter, a 32-year-old woman from India who worked as a nurse.

          So for you the decisions of the General Assembly are an empty phrase? So you lose all right to demand something from others, regardless of which UN body makes decisions. And by the way, the decision to create a Palestinian and Jewish state was made in 1948, and it was the UN General Assembly, and the Jews completely agreed with everything, but the Arabs started a war, which they shamefully lost, like all other wars. So learn history.

      Not this way.
      1. There is not a single Security Council resolution obliging Israel to withdraw from all territories;
      2. Without any resolutions, Israel withdrew from the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. There is de facto complete self-government. With three branches of government and its own power structures. And the complete absence of Jews. What kind of seizure of Palestinian territories by Israel are we talking about?
      4. UN resolution on the formation of Israel and an Arab state - not implemented due to the aggression in 1948 by Egypt, Transjordan, SA, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon against Israel.
      5. By your logic, the Palestinians can kill Jews with impunity, because they do not want to recognize Israel's right to exist. And themselves, for many years now they have not wanted to get off the Jewish neck and form their own state de jure. Which, even in two copies (the Gaza Strip and the West Bank) exist.

    Simple questions.
    The resolution refers to the territories of the 67th year. Tell me why a Palestinian state was not created from 1948 to 1967? Who was in the way? Why was the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) created in 1964 if the territories were annexed in 1967? From whom and what did the PLO liberate? Why did Arafat give up 1999% of the territories and the right to create a state in 93?
    Before making silly recommendations, try to get a minimum amount of knowledge to talk about problems that you absolutely do not understand (judging by your post).
