Did you know that the United Nations has been supplying Hamas terrorists with food and other dry goods?

IDF troops discovered large bags of UNRWA supplies in a massive Hamas terror tunnel underneath Gaza, that was dug 25 meters deep to withstand airstrikes.

Elder of Ziyon  In these bunkers they found large bags of UNRWA aid. Clearly UNRWA doesn’t hand out these large sacks of rice and other goods directly to Gazans, these sacks could only be obtained from UNRWA employees themselves – who are clearly part of the Hamas tunnel digging teams.

Can everyone say bunker buster?

ISRAEL: Arab Muslim ‘Hit and Run’ Jihad at Israeli bus stop

Palestinian Arab driver intentionally drives into a crowd of Jews in Gush Etzion, then speeds away.

BCF (h/t SusanK)   As you can see in the video, the Arab driver swerved into a group of people, mostly women and girls standing at a Gush Etzion Junction bus stop. One woman, 20, was injured in the attack, and was taken to Hadassah Ein Karen hospital. The driver drove off and was captured south of Gush Etzion. The footage was captured by the security camera overlooking the bus stop.

Al-Jazeera Analysis of Gaza casualties in Operation Protective Edge – as of July 25th

2en1-vi

Here is the latest based on the 627 names listed at Al Jazeera, and taken from the Gaza Health Ministry.

IsraellyCool  Note that this analysis eliminates duplicated names found, and delineates those whose age or gender was not identified, in order to make the analysis as accurate as possible.

haniyeh-vi

What this analysis indicates even more clearly than the previous two is how even those numbers provided by the Gaza Health Ministry do not support claims that Israel is targeting civilians or indiscriminately killing them, and do support IDF claims that we are trying to pinpoint the terrorists. How else do you explain:

  • The highest demographic category of those killed being young males of fighting age (18-28) – 32% (73% x 44%)
  • Over 42% of those killed have been males of age 18-38 (i.e including others who could very well be combatants)
  • When compared to the overall population of Gaza, a disproportionately high percentage of young to middle age males have been killed
  • Despite comprising approximately 50% of the population, the percentage of women killed is 21%.
  • Despite comprising  approximately 50% of the population, the percentage of children under 14 killed is 15%.

ISRAEL WILL WIN…if only Obama can restrain himself from helping Hamas terrorists

netanyahuobamaphone-viBut we know the chances of that are slim to none. Slandered, despised, insulted, degraded, Israel is nonetheless winning its war against Hamas. The number of rocket attacks launched by the terror group each day has been halved. The IDF is uprooting the underground tunnels Hamas uses to smuggle weapons, contraband, and terrorists in and out of the Gaza Strip.

Free Beacon  On Wednesday evening, Israel’s Channel Two newscast carried footage of Hamas terrorists surrendering to the IDF. The jihadists carried white flags. They stripped to their shorts, proving they were not wearing suicide belts. These are facts Hamas does not want you to know, images Hamas does not want you to see.

51178

And you probably won’t see them (except at BNI). Since the evening of July 17, when Israel launched its ground offensive, Western media has been filled with Hamas propaganda. In the United States, the debate over the conflict is invariably couched in terms favorable to Hamas: Are civilian casualties too high? Is it safe to fly into Ben-Gurion airport? Has the IDF targeted schools and hospitals? One MSNBC anchor calls Israel, which abandoned Gaza in 2005, the occupying authority.” Another praises a “gutsy” Israeli, who refuses to serve in her nation’s military.

On CNN, the Islamist Turkish prime minister says Israel has surpassed what Hitler did.” A CNN reporter calls Israelis “scum”; a NBC reporter tweets a scurrilous article calling U.S. Jews who join the IDF “America’s Israeli jihadists; and a writer for Gawker says it’s time to send the Jews back to Germany. Reporters once embedded with military forces. Now the talking points of a military force—the talking points of Hamas—are embedded in the U.S. media.

article-2695422-1FBC76A800000578-376_634x330

And yet the immediate danger to the success of this necessary war does not come from the electronic intifada. It does not come from resurgent anti-Semitism, or the United Nations Human Rights Council, or the failure of so many Western elites to recognize the causes of this war, their inability to distinguish between a democratic country struggling to protect its people and a terror state using children as hostages. Hate, law-fare, decadence—they are all challenges for Israel. But Israel can endure them for now. Israel is used to it.

Netanyahuobamaisrael010-vi

What Israel should not endure is the premature conclusion of hostilities. Disarming Hamas—seizing its rocket caches, collapsing its tunnels, killing and capturing its forces—is vital to Israeli security. And an artificial ceasefire imposed by outside powers, a ceasefire written in terms favorable to Hamas, would undermine the security gains Israel has made to date. President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have given no sign that they recognize this fact. Or maybe they understand it all too well: The Obama administration’s top priority is imposing a ceasefire at exactly the moment when Israel’s military success is becoming clear.

IsraelSecurity590LI-vi

Secretary Kerry arrived in Cairo earlier this week. No one wanted him there. Egypt’s ruler, General Sisi, has no interest in saving Hamas through international diplomacy: The Muslim Brotherhood is his mortal enemy. Kerry then went from Cairo to Jerusalem, where he met with U.N. Secretary Ban Ki-moon, who flew to the meeting on a plane chartered by Qatar, Hamas’ primary source of cash. Kerry also met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is too gracious to tell the secretary to go back to Boston. (Israel’s former ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, has said publicly what the Israeli government will not: Kerry is an unwelcome guest.) Next up was Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority, who honored Kerry’s presence by endorsing Hamas’s call for a “Day of Rage” in the West Bank. Kerry “will soon decide if Hamas and Israel are willing to agree on a Gaza ceasefire,” Reuters says.

Kerry will decide? Who died and made him king?

There is no ceasefire in Gaza because a ceasefire is in no one’s interest. Israel’s objective is clear: degrade Hamas’ capability to fire rockets at Israeli civilians and attack Israeli communities from underground. As for Hamas, its interest is irrational, macabre, and deranged, but no less obvious: Promote itself as the leader of the worldwide struggle against Zionism and Judaism, while ensuring collateral damage that will foment outrage at Israel. That is why Hamas stores weapons in schools, why its military headquarters is in the basement of a hospital. Hamas is not interested in minimizing pain. Hamas wants to maximize it.

1402173617_4434

Who wants a ceasefire? Obama and Kerry. They need the diplomatic victory after the failure of their misguided and poorly executed bid to reconcile the irreconcilable. The president’s approval rating on foreign policy is abysmal. A ceasefire might help the American people forget, just for a moment, that their president has failed to influence events in Ukraine, Syria, and Iraq, let alone advance American interests overseas. Since he became president, Israel is the one country in the world in whose affairs President Obama has seemed at all interested in intervening. It is the one country whose politics and actions Obama has had no trouble judging harshly. Next to golf, it’s his favorite pastime.

Kerry-Netanyahu

Who wants a ceasefire? Qatar. The sheikhs who bankroll the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Jazeera, and Hamas would see their status rise. A ceasefire would lend credence to the theory that the traditional Sunni powers—Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia—have been eclipsed both by Shiite Iran and by Brotherhood-friendly Sunnis in the Gulf and Turkey. Having lost Egypt and possibly Gaza, the Brotherhood finds itself on the precipice. A Qatari-backed ceasefire that does not include disarmament of Hamas would pull the movement back from the abyss.

obamanetanyahouisrael-vi

“One of the results, one would hope, of a cease-fire would be some form of demilitarization, so that again, this doesn’t continue, doesn’t repeat itself,” said Tony Blinken, Obama’s deputy national security adviser, to NPR. Onewould hope so. Indeed, actual demilitarization—not hoped for, not partial—is exactly what the IDF is doing now, block by block, tunnel by tunnel. Why is the administration trying to stop it? Is a ceasefire that leaves Hamas with its arsenal really more desirable to them than another week of war?

Benjamin-Netanyahu_2673048b

This is not the time for President Obama and John Kerry to play to type, to promote bad agreements for self-satisfaction, for political gain. If they won’t stand behind Israel, they should at least get out of the way. And let the IDF finish the job.

IDF reports: Hamas morale collapsing as fighters flee their positions

An Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldier in the field told the Jerusalem Post that while Hamas fighters offered fierce resistance when the ground operation began, now Hamas operatives are fleeing, abandoning their positions, leaving behind weapons that the IDF is using to expand its assault on the terror group.

Breitbart  The source added that in recent days, a recognizable wave of demoralization has washed over Hamas’s combat battalions. “They simply escape, leaving behind weapons and suicide bomb vests that were laid out for battle. This morning we stormed a position, and they just weren’t there. I don’t see a determined enemy. We have encountered stronger pockets of fighting in the past. But now, I would not give them a high grade for fighting spirit.”

Using further eyewitness reports, the article describes how Hamas has integrated the tunnel network into the civilian infrastructure of Gaza, constructing entrances in homes and even mosques. “I have not entered one civilian home that did not have weapons, suicide belts, or booby traps in it,” the source told the Post, stressing the lengths to which the IDF goes to protect innocent civilians caught in the crossfire, regardless.

The reports of a collapse in Hamas fighters’ morale lends credence to other reports that Hamas leaders were considering a temporary truce suggested by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. The organization has insisted in the past on making a ceasefire conditional on the removal of the international blockade of Gaza, which exists to prevent Hamas from importing weapons and materials to build its terror network even further than it has.

Update: As Israel’s political leaders debated a ceasefire well into Friday evening, a top military leader took the unusual step of discouraging a ceasefire, the Times of Israel reports, confirming the Jerusalem Post‘s report about Hamas retreat:

“The spirit of Hamas terrorists is weakening,” Southern Region Commander Maj. Gen. Sami Turgeman says. “I see terrorists in distress, abandoned by their commanders who deserted them at the front and stayed behind…and facing them, our reserve and standing army units led by commanders leading the force.”

CARTOONISTS in the Muslim world are attacking Arab leaders for their virtually unanimous non-support for Hamas in the latest conflict with Israel

HINT: It’s no secret that most of the Arab world has always disliked the Palestinians which is why so many Arab countries will not grant them citizenship or allow them to buy land in their countries.

img66818

MEMRI  As the Israel-Hamas conflict in the Gaza Strip continues, there is evidence of a sense of disappointment in the Arab and Muslim world at the Arab countries’ failure to act to aid the Gaza residents, and at the Arab League’s indifference to events there. This disappointment has been expressed pointedly in cartoons in newspapers, on websites, and on social networks; cartoonists went so far as to accuse the Arabs of betraying Gaza and of collaborating with Israel in the latter’s operations there.

It should be noted that alongside the criticism of the Arab position vis-à-vis the Gaza events, the Arab press has published numerous articles criticizing Hamas’ actions and terming them endangerment of the lives of Gaza residents. The following are cartoons on the Gaza situation from Arab and Iranian sources:

ISRAEL: Bomb Shelter ‘Selfies’

Leave it to the Israelis to make the best of a bad situation. A new trend of ‘bomb shelter selfies’ takes off as under-siege Tel Aviv residents vow to ‘keep on smiling.’

UK Daily Mail  (h/t MZ) When the air-raid sirens ring out across Israel, hundreds of thousands of people scramble to the safety of shelters. (You can see by their come-as-you-are attire, or lack thereof, that there was no time to change into more ‘appropriate’ bomb shelter fashion)

1406188838018_wps_23_Bomb_Shelter_Selfies_Isra

Taking cover in safe rooms, bomb shelters, and stairwells can be a terrifying experience for many Israeli citizens, but dozens of teenagers and adults have posted smiling selfies on Facebook to document their experiences.  Sara Eisen, a resident of Beit Shemesh in central Israel, set up one of the group’s called ‘Bomb Shelter Selfies.’

In one snap a young woman is shown standing next to an elderly man in his towel with the caption ‘Meet other neighbours in the shelter.’

1406188806522_Image_galleryImage_Bomb_Shelter_Selfies_Isra

Another image shows a group of teenage girls smiling, waving and sticking their tongues out for the camera.

A family pose for another jovial photo next to the wording ‘Lovin this ceasefire.’

One image shows a pair of teenagers who were forced to go to the air raid shelter in the middle of a pamper session – one of them is wearing a face-mask while the other is dressed in just a towel.

1406188710613_wps_17_Bomb_Shelter_Selfies_Isra

Lots of the photos in the group show Israeli’s with their pets which they have taken into the shelter.

1406188781228_wps_21_Bomb_Shelter_Selfies_Isra

As well as posting photos users have shared tips on how to keep children entertained during the long hours in the shelters as well as Jewish people from across the the world posting messages of support. 

One user wrote: ‘Love how you are keeping safe and finding the wonderful positive attitude and smiling. The Jewish community in the Washington DC area had a rally to support Israel. Be well!!’

1406189075835_wps_28_bomb_shelter_selfie_3_JPG

But the group has been criticised by internet users who feel it makes a mockery of the rising Palestinian death toll.

One user wrote: ‘Guess who has no shelters or any safe spot to be in? Children of Gaza. The little charged phones are saved for emergencies rather than taking selfies… Because guess who controls electricity? Israel.’ Another wrote: ‘Meanwhile, Palestinian women and children don’t have the luxury of running to bomb shelters when Israeli bombs fall from the sky.this is not war.this is ethnic cleansing.’

1406188863390_wps_24_Bomb_Shelter_Selfies_Isra

But Ms Eisen wrote on the group: ‘There are those who allege that the fact that we are smiling / not dead proves that Israelis are not suffering. I will not apologize for being alive, protecting my children.’ 

1406189069544_wps_27_Bomb_Shelter_Selfies_Isra

The 16-day conflict has claimed the lives of 718 Palestinians, most of them civilians, Palestinian health officials say. 

Israel has lost 32 soldiers, all since July 17, when it widened its air campaign into a full-scale ground operation aimed at halting rocket fire from Gaza and destroying a sophisticated network of cross-border tunnels.

WOO HOO! Simon Cowell donates £90,000 ($150,000+) to the IDF. Twittersphere explodes!

Simon Cowell bombarded with (mostly phony, no doubt) images of dead Gaza children’ over his $150,000+ Israeli Defense Forces donation. Lest anyone forget, Simon Cowell is of Jewish heritage.

ad_141298413

IB Times  Simon Cowell has provoked the wrath of pro-Palestine Twitter users by gifting £90,000 to an Israeli army charity.

According to the Daily Mail, the X Factor boss has been bombarded with gruesome images of dead Palestinian children after it emerged that he donated the cash to the Friends of the Israel Defence Forces (FIDF) at a fundraiser in Beverley Hills last year. During the dinner, Cowell belted out the Power Ranger theme tune after billionaire host Haim Saban vowed to donate $1m to the FIDF.

7488cbc0-1260-11e4-8e90-fb30e6e379e7_o-GAZA-570

But following the invasion of Gaza earlier this month, many fans have taken aim at the media mogul, accusing him of aiding the conflict. “You have blood on ur hands”, one user tweeted, along with an image of four dead Palestinian children on stretchers.

Another tried to appeal to the new father’s protective side, saying: “u donated money to Israel to do this. Now imagine this was ur child”. The posts have since been deleted.

Cowell, the grandson of a Jewish refugee, has been embracing Judaism after his Jewish girlfriend Lauren Silverman gave birth to his son. “He is open to reason on the subject of religion and the faith in which his son is brought up,” an insider previously told the Mirror. “But he is naturally inquisitive and really wants to visit Israel so that he can make a more informed decision.”

Cowell has yet to comment on the backlash but he did send them this:

CAIR’S star IslamoJew, Jacob Bender, sides with Hamas against Israel

love_park_rally_20140723_1939134263

At competing pro-Israel/pro-Hamas rallies in Philly, the Judenrat Executive Director of CAIR-Phildelphia, Jacob Bender, stood in solidarity with Hamas:

Newsworks  As “an American and as a Jew,” Jacob Bender, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said he was there to protest the policies of the state of Israel in killing Palestinian civilians.

cair JB at GazaDemo

BENDER has a long history of virulently attacking Israel and Zionism. His letters to various newspapers:

“As an American Jew, I believe the improvement of Muslim-Jewish relations rests upon two foundations: a recognition by Muslims that anti-Jewish bigotry violates Islamic values and principles, and a recognition by Jews that as long as Israel continues its brutal occupation of the Palestinians, no improvement in relations between “the children of Abraham” will be possible.”Jacob Bender, Stuttgart, Germany

“The vast settlement project, widely recognized as violating international law, is only the most visible manifestation of Israel’s four-decade long rule over Palestinian territory, an occupation that has included torture, political assassination, home demolitions and economic strangulation.] Many Jews, like myself, have long argued that the occupation is inimical to Israel’s own security, as well as violating Jewish ethics that mandate justice and mercy. The Saudi Initiative, which offers Israel full diplomatic recognition and regional integration, may be one of the final chances for Israel to achieve a lasting peace.”Jacob Bender, New York

dec_007

Frontpage Joe Kaufman  For the past decade or so, a strange phenomenon has taken place whereby a small group of extreme leftist Jews have willingly aligned themselves with Islamists, mainly out of a common animosity towards the foreign policies of America, Israel and other Western Capitalist societies. These Jews generally function as political pawns and stooges acting against their own best interests, but none of them have gone on to head the Islamist organizations they have teamed with. That is, until now.

On October 15th, the Philadelphia office of the radical Muslim group CAIR put out a press release announcing that it had hired Jacob Bender, a left-wing Jewish activist and filmmaker, as its new Executive Director. Hiring Bender was a public relations win for CAIR. For Bender, he joins a group that, in his estimation, appears to be like-minded, especially on the issue of Israel.

Jacob Bender, the Islamofascists' favorite useful idiot Jew

Jacob Bender, the Islamofascists’ favorite useful idiot Jew

And what does Bender think about “the growth of terrorism and Islamist extremism” from Israel’s enemies? He blames that on Israel, as well. He writes, in another letter, that they are “a direct result of its oppression of the Palestinians.”

“As we approach the 40th anniversary of the 1967 Six-Day War, your article makes clear that the suffering the Palestinians have endured is a result of Israel’s occupation. After four decades, friends of Israel, especially American Jews, must lose their inhibitions against “washing dirty laundry in public” and finally raise their collective voices against the self-destructive madness of Israeli policy.”

“A change in American policy that recognizes the right of the Palestinian people to national self-determination in a state of their own would also imply the ending of Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem and a dismantling of the Israeli settlements. This would ultimately prove to be in the best interest of everyone: Israel, the Palestinians, the entire Middle East and the United States.” –Jacob Bender, New York

Jacob Bender can sleep well with the pride of being a useful idiot for a terror front.

Calls for “Intifada” “Intifada” as West Bank riots over Gaza turn deadly

Five Palestinians killed as Muslims riot in the West Bank as Hamas calls for a 3rd Intifada (mass killing of Jews). Palestinian Authority officials called for a “Day of Rage” across the West Bank after Friday’s prayers, in protest of the war on Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

Times of Israel  Five Palestinians were killed in the West Bank Friday, in a series of clashes and demonstrations hours after Hamas officials in the Gaza Strip and abroad urged Palestinians to launch a Third Intifada against Israel.

1406300555800_wps_10_Israeli_armed_policemen_s

In the Hawara area, south of the West Bank city of Nablus, a settler fired his weapon in self-defense at a crowd of Palestinians who stoned his car and attacked him and stoned him when he got out, according to Channel 2. An 18-year-old Palestinian, identified later as Khaled Oudeh, was killed in the shooting, according to Palestinian sources.

Following the incident, hundreds of Palestinians rioted in the area and clashed with IDF troops, who responded with tear gas and live bullets. A second Palestinian, 22-year-old Tayyib Oudeh, was reported killed in the rioting, while several others were reported injured, according to AFP.

In the West Bank village of Beit Ummar, near Hebron, three Palestinian men, including 46-year-old Hashem Abu Marieh and 30-year-old Sultan Yusef, were reportedly shot and killed by IDF troops during violent clashes, according to Palestinians.

1406300479122_wps_6_An_Israeli_undercover_pol

Later, a Palestinian man turned himself in to Israeli police after swerving his car into a group of Israelis, hitting and lightly injuring a 17-year-old Israeli girl, at the Etzion Bloc junction in the West Bank, Channel 2 reported.

In Friday’s early morning hours, Qatar-based Hamas spokesman Husham Badran, responding to reports of clashes Thursday between thousands of Palestinian protesters and police at the Qalandiya checkpoint between Jerusalem and Ramallah, said the time was now ripe for the Palestinians to rise up, Israel Radio reported. “This is your opportunity,” Badran stated.

1406273895010_Image_galleryImage_At_least_10_000_Palestini

Following the demonstration, Hamas official Izat a-Rishk posted a call on Twitter for a revolution against the Israeli people, adding that the blood of Gazans ignites the West Bank. Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri later added that the events in Qalandiya prove that the Palestinians are one people and that Gaza cannot be isolated.

UK Daily Mail  Israeli undercover police were involved in street conflicts with Palestinian protesters in Jerusalem today as officers were put on high alert for flare-ups at the city’s most important mosque during Friday prayers for the final stretch of the Ramadan Muslim holy month. Hundreds of Palestinians protested in the traditionally Arab east of the city after Muslim noon prayers today. A dozen protesters threw rocks and fireworks at Israeli police, who fired stun grenades and water cannons, Associated Press reported.

1406300501569_wps_8_A_Palestinian_protester_b

The night before, thousands of Palestinians protesting the Gaza fighting clashed with Israeli security forces in the West Bank and in east Jerusalem in one of the biggest protests in the territory in years.

Israeli aircraft have struck 30 houses in the Gaza Strip today, killing a leader of the militant Islamic Jihad group and two of his sons, as Palestinians called for a ‘Day of Rage’ after two people were killed when at least 10,000 protesters clashed with Israeli security forces late yesterday. 

1406273637056_Image_galleryImage_At_least_10_000_Palestini

Last night’s violence came after a UN school in Gaza, crowded with hundreds of Palestinians seeking refuge from fierce fighting, came under fire yesterday, killing at least 15 civilians and injuring more than 200.

Palestinian officials blamed Israel for the shelling of the school, which came on the deadliest day so far of the current round of fighting.  However, the Israeli military said the school ‘was not a target in any way’ and raised the possibility the compound was hit by Hamas rockets. 

The Israeli military today said it hit 45 sites in Gaza, including what it said was a Hamas military command post, while Gaza militants continued to fire rockets at Israel, with one hitting an empty house.

HAMAS used temporary ‘humanitarian’ cease-fire to kill 25 Palestinian civilians and blame it on the IDF

Hamas killed at least 25 Palestinian civilians it suspected of collaborating with Israel, according to sources close to Gazan jihadist organizations. The sources, close to both Hamas and the Islamic Jihad groups, said that most of the extra-judicial killings of suspected collaborators took place during a brief “humanitarian” cease-fire four days ago.

hamas

WND Aaron Klein – The so-called collaborators were accused of leading Israeli troops to smuggling tunnels and providing intelligence on Hamas’ infrastructure inside Gazan cities. The sources said Hamas publicly blamed the killings of the Palestinian suspects on Israel, claiming the civilians were murdered Sunday during an Israel Defense Forces “massacre” in the Shujaiyeh neighborhood of the Gaza Strip.

The sources further said the civilian suspects murdered by Hamas were publicly celebrated by Hamas as martyrs killed by the Jewish state.

20140726_LDC389_0

After Sunday’s operation in Shujaiyeh, in which the IDF says it targeted Hamas’s terrorist infrastructure, Israel agreed to a two-hour humanitarian cease-fire facilitated by the International Committee of the Red Cross. The stated purposed of the lull in fighting was to evacuate Palestinian casualties.

During the cease-fire, the IDF said Hamas violated the agreement by shooting at IDF soldiers. Nonetheless, Israel extended the cease-fire another hour. Israel lost 13 soldiers during the Shujaiyeh operation Sunday. Hamas claimed Israel killed at least 66 Palestinians, mostly civilians, in that operation.

Israel says most Palestinian casualties were gunmen.

150 Hamas operatives surrender to Israeli Defense Forces in Gaza

Dozens of Palestinian terror operatives, most of whom were said to be members of Hamas, surrendered Wednesday to IDF soldiers during raids in the southern Gaza Strip cities of Rafah and Khan Yunis and were transferred to Israeli facilities for interrogation.

51178Times of Israel  The operatives, who came out of hiding spots with their hands raised above their heads, were taken into Israeli custody for further questioning.

In total, 150 Palestinians were arrested, but only 70 of them who were suspected of carrying out terror attacks were transferred under tight security to IDF Intelligence and Shin Bet facilities for interrogation, an IDF spokeswoman told The Times of Israel, adding to 28 operatives already captured. The remaining detainees were later released, Army Radio reported.

A picture of the Gazans posted on Facebook by Israeli Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz showed two rows of captives wearing only underwear and shoes, on their knees in the sand. They were stripped of their clothes in order to ensure they were not carrying weapons.
