Israel Violence Flares Up As Hamas Fires 300 Rockets (Video)

Palestinian Terrorist organization Hamas fired some 300 rockets into Israel in the past few hours in reaction to a covert operation in the Gaza strip by the Israeli Defense Forces which left 7 dead and shut down the official TV station operated by the terrorist group.

The violence that flared up in response seems to heighten the tension between the two groups once again and marked the most serious escalation since an Israel-Hamas war in 2014.

The spokesman for the Hamas military wing, identified only as Abu Obeida, said the deadly rocket attack on the coastal city of Ashkelon, which received almost 1 rocket per second, showed the city "has entered the range of fire as a response to the bombing of buildings in Gaza."

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">We struck Hamas’ military intelligence HQ in response to the 300+ rockets that terrorists in <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Gaza?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Gaza</a> fired at <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Israel?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Israel</a>.<br>This is where Hamas&#39; intelligence operatives gathered information to launch attacks on Israelis. <br>Hamas intentionally established their HQ next to a school. <a href="https://t.co/nuHoLmlcD9">pic.twitter.com/nuHoLmlcD9</a></p>&mdash; Israel Defense Forces (@IDFSpokesperson) <a href="https://twitter.com/IDFSpokesperson/status/1062126855233433600?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 12, 2018</a></blockquote>

Hamas furthermore claimed that the Israeli cities of Ashdod and Beersheba "are the next targets if the enemy continues bombing civilian buildings."

The violence flared up again after a Israeli military raid in Gaza on Sunday went wrong. A reconnaissance mission by undercover Israeli troops went wrong and set off a battle which left seven Palestinians, including a senior Hamas commander dead. On the Israeli side, one soldier was killed.

Then around sundown on Monday, militants launched some 100 rockets in less than an hour, the most intense barrage since the 50-day war four years ago. The outgoing rockets, which continued into the evening, lit up the skies of Gaza and set off air raid sirens throughout southern Israel.

Israel responded with warplanes, helicopters and tanks that struck over 30 militant targets, including military compounds, observation posts and weapons facilities.

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesperson, explained that the Israeli would be sending additional infantry troops, rocket defence systems and intelligence units to the Gaza frontier: "we continue to strike and retaliate against the military targets belonging to terrorist organisations in Gaza, and as for our intentions we will enhance these efforts as needed."

Monday evening, Israel was able to take out the Gaza City headquarters of Hamas' Al Aqsa TV station.

Hamas spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum condemned the bombing as "a barbaric, brazen aggression.”

Israel can only kick ass because the U.S.A. pays for it. If they didn't, the middle east countries would wipe israel off the face of the earth.
