According to an IDF spokesperson, a tank struck a Hamas outpost amid a reported breach of the border fence by a few men.

On Saturday the Jerusalem Post outlet reported that Israel and Hamas agreed to a cease fire in the Gaza Strip after a day of cross-border clashes, that saw the IDF carry out strikes on more than 40 Hamas military targets.

According to the IDF, during the operation earlier this week, the jets and tanks pounded Hamas’ infrastructure, attacking almost 70 targets throughout the Gaza enclave, including a Hamas battalion headquarters in Khan Yunis.

The Palestinian group, in turn, responded by firing three rockets back at Israel.

Addressing the issue, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas urged the international community to intervene in order to quell the conflict.

The conflict’s re-ignition was caused by the death of an Israeli soldier, who had been shot by a sniper earlier on Friday.

According to the IDF, he was the first soldier on active duty to be killed on the Gaza front since 2014.

Hostilities between the Israelis and the Palestinians near the Gaza border increased in late March, which marked the beginning of the Palestinian protest campaign against Israel, dubbed the Great March of Return.

Gazans can thank Qassem Soleimani advising to Hamas and renewed Iranian backing/funding to this terrorist organisation.
Seems Khamenei is into trying to divert IDF’s attention from IRGC presence in Syria 😉

Hamas has learned that it is Iran that always “win” and has “unconditional” reliable support than any other Islamic country. They know that in Syria war they did not listen to Iran and betrayed Assad who gave them everything. Now they see Assad won the war with the help of Iran.
Imagine, Hamas from the west, Hezbollah from the north and SAA from east attack Israel simultaneously on the ground and flood of Iranian missiles rain over Israel. Do you think Israelis can win that war with all of their power and atomic bombs?

“Imagine, Hamas from the west, Hezbollah from the north and SAA from east attack Israel simultaneously on the ground and flood of Iranian missiles rain over Israel. Do you think Israelis can win that war with all of their power and atomic bombs?” => Without any problem, even not using nukes at all. Their F-16 ALONE are able to take out 213,000+ ground targets per 24h, incl MBTs. C-RAMS and ABMs are numerous and detect from where launches come, thus allowing immediate return fire on batteries… They can even detect any launch from Iran and if trajectory says it’s coming… Read more »
