Hamas is trying to cause a chemical disaster in Israel
GAZA, (BM) – One of Hamas’s combat brigades, Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, tried to cause a chemical accident in Israel by attacking the chemical plant in Nir Oz with a massive missile and drone attacks, learned BulgarianMilitary.com, citing TASS and Forbes.
The attack took place yesterday, May 14 (Friday). Websites close to the Palestinian political military movement Hamas have started distributing a video claiming to show the rocket attack on the plant. Other sources say Hamas used Iranian-made kamikaze drones for the attack. So far, however, there is no official data on whether the chemical plant was hit by Palestinian missiles. The information cannot be confirmed.
BulgarianMilitary.com conducted a study of the production at the plant. In it, the Israelis produce various chemicals, using volatile chemical poisons such as chlorine, ammonia and others. The plant also stores toxic materials. Experts say that if the Hamas attack had been successful, cities near the plant would have been exposed to highly toxic and toxic airborne chemicals that could have caused serious damage.
Hatzerim Air Base is also under fire
Isarel has an air base in the southern part of the country called Hatzerim. According to a statement from the same fighter wing, Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, the air base has been the target of missile and drone attacks. This information also cannot be confirmed.
The Hamas movement has targeted this air base for two reasons – a significant number of Israeli F-15 and F-16 fighters take off from it, and Israeli missiles are stored at the air base.
Since the start of the conflict, which erupted at a rapid pace this week, 126 Palestinians have been killed and 950 injured.
What is happening in the area?
The violence began after the focus fell on controversial judicial and political actions over the Palestinian-populated Sheikh Jara district of East Jerusalem. An Israeli court initially ruled that Palestinians should be evicted from the neighborhood and be populated with Israelis. A hearing on the eviction followed, but it never ended last Sunday and was postponed.
On Monday, Jerusalem was subjected to a brief rocket attack by al-Quds and Hamas with a request on the eviction decision. Israel did not comply with the Palestinians, which led to a retaliatory strike and a rocket fire between the two countries for the second day in a row.
According to a field source, Israel has involved fighter jets and tanks in the conflict, which are hitting 130 targets in the Gaza Strip. These goals are related to the Hamas movement. According to the Israeli authorities, these goals are also associated with terrorist organizations.
The international community welcomes the actions of Israelis and Palestinians, but as statements from both sides make clear, both sides may reach no agreement soon.
