TEL AVIV, (BM) – Since the beginning of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, several Israeli ground forces have been on standby. They are located on the border and include landing brigades as well as a brigade of armored vehicles.
A source in BulgarianMilitary.com, a former Mossad employee and currently close to leading bodies in the Israeli Ministry of Defense, confirmed to our editorial office that today, the heads of the Israeli army would propose a plan to invade Gaza by armored vehicles and tanks.
The news was confirmed just minutes ago by Brigadier General Hidai Zilberman, a spokesman for the Israeli army, who said such plans had been prepared and submitted to the Israeli Army General Staff for approval. It is assumed, but not yet confirmed, that the IDF can submit these same plans to the Israeli political leadership for review.
The last 24 hours
The bombing does not stop. Fighting between Palestinians and Israelis continues amid an exchange of missile attacks, although their intensity is lower than yesterday.
The Israeli military has circulated videos in the media about precise strikes on apartment buildings in Gaza, claiming that leaders of the Hamas political, military movement have hit those buildings.
In the last 3-4 hours, the red signal sirens in Israel for an alleged missile attack sounded six times. At the same time, spokesmen for the terrorist organization Islamic Jihad confirmed the assassination of their leaders, whom we informed you about yesterday. They promised Israel to retaliate with even more fierce and fierce rocket attacks.
Yesterday’s strikes were some of the heaviest Israeli strikes
On May 12, the Israeli air force has launched a series of airstrikes in Gaza, destroying a police station and dozens of police barricades. At the same time, according to field sources, three Hamas leaders were killed – Basem Issa, head of the Gaza Strip, Rafa’a Salameh, chief of the Khan Yunis district, and Mohammad Yazuri, director of Hamas military intelligence.
Hours earlier, the Israeli army and Israeli security forces Shin Bet had killed two other leaders of the Palestinian political, military movement, Hassan Kaugi, head of Hamas’s military intelligence security department, and deputy Wail Issa.
Another of our field sources reports that the Palestinians continued to fire rockets at Ashkelon, Modiin, and Tel Aviv. The IDF activated the Iron Dome anti-aircraft defense systems and its position (at the source – ed.) He (the source – ed.) could see the launches of the missiles from the Iron Dome and their interception.
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.
