Re: March 25, 2019 Gaza / Israel Clash

Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails and prisons have begun a full food/water strike. Should prisoners start dying or critically getting ill (2 PIJ prisoners are already critically ill) the chance of rockets and border attacks will go up. The strike was scheduled to begin on Sunday but was held of...

Israel/West Bank/Gaza DEC 2018

Things have mostly been quiet on the Israel/Gaza side of things for a change, this morning, a balloon with an IED attached was found on the Israeli side of the Gaza border and detonated by Israeli forces. Riots are still ongoing on Mondays and Fridays but at a significantly lower intensity than past...

Re: Israel Gaza November

Otherwise, it's been surprisingly quiet, the riots on Monday in the northern Gaza Strip were pretty peaceful with only 40 injuri...

Re: "Israel preparing for offensive against Gaza"

Egypt apparently saved Israel from another rocket attack from PIJ, at least for now, by releasing 13 Islamic Jihad activists from Egyptian prison, however calls in Gaza and mass protests within Gaza are still taking place calling for a unified response to the deaths of 3 kids who were reportedly pla...

Re: Israel October

Last Friday's riots along the border were violent despite reports from the IDF that said otherwise, nearly 160 were injured on the border by gunfire and multiple other injuries were reported, mainly due to tear gas canisters. Israel's defense minister continues to push for a war in the Gaza Strip wh...

False alarm rocket sirens sounded earlier in multiple southern Israeli communities near the Gaza border and one interceptor was fired from an Iron Dome system in the area during an IDF security situation that closed roads in the same area, it is unclear what caused them, however something as small a...

Re: "Israel preparing for offensive against Gaza"

Israel held a security cabinet meeting just over 3 hours ago on the situation in Gaza, very very little news has come out so far on what was discussed and/or decided, which is slightly unusual, but not surprising since Netanyahu doesn't like leakers. Rioting continues on the Gaza/Israel border even ...
