  • i as a black woman feel the PAIN OF the natives people of Palestine. i to know what OPPRESSION is like, and none in the world cares because my skin is not white.

    the color peoples of the world CRY AND PRAY FOR THE OPPRESSED. those whom have no voice in the media, those that have nothing to fight back with, those who's only crime is what they look like and what they believe and THEIR STRONG WILL TO LIVE.

    ITS CALLED RESISTANCE, FIGHTING OPPRESSION.
    WHY WOULD JESUS WANT THE BLOOD OF ARAB CHILDREN!

  • this is all bullshit and just propaganda, since u control the media. U are fighting against an officially democratically elected government. u are killing the innocent people, kids, men and women.

  • “the children of Gaza will be collecting the body parts of your soldiers and the ruins of tanks.” Quoted from a taped statement by Hamas on an impending ground incusrion by the IDF

    Typical Hamas rhetoric. Once again demonstrating how their love of dead jews far exceeds love of their own children.

  • This is a propaganda. There is something suspicious in all these. Otherwise a govt. will have no need to indulge in propaganda. This is israeli govt.'s falsehood.

  3. IDF Operation in the Gaza Strip <ul><li>Following an extended period of restraint and as part of its right and obligation to defend the safety of its citizens, the Government of Israel has ordered the IDF to take measures against Hamas and other terrorist organizations. These measures are directed at Hamas and other terrorist infrastructure. They are part of an effort to create more favorable defensive conditions for an extended period. </li></ul><ul><li>The war on terrorism and terrorist infrastructure is ongoing and arduous. The IDF is prepared to expand its activity, including a ground offensive if needed, and will continue in accordance with the strategic assessments . The operation will continue for as long as required. </li></ul>

The rockets fired were of various ranges - the longest range today was 37 km and hit in the area of Ashdod . Approximately 37 Qassam rockets, 11 mortar shells and 11 Grad rockets have been fired since this morning (29/12).

  7. Humanitarian Aid <ul><li>The IDF is doing its utmost to assist with humanitarian aid and will not allow the humanitarian conditions in Gaza to deteriorate. Hamas bears sole responsibility for the closing of the crossings and for the suffering endured by the Palestinian civilian population. </li></ul><ul><li>The IDF continues to coordinate activities with international organizations such as ICRC, WFP and UNRWA in order to facilitate the passage of humanitarian aid . </li></ul><ul><li>Today, Israel transferred 57 trucks of humanitarian aid into Gaza. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition, the COGAT authorized the transfer of 5 Red Cross ambulances and one Jordanian truck with 1,000 blood units into Gaza. </li></ul>
  8. <ul><li>Following an extended period of restraint—and as part of its right and obligation to defend the safety of its citizens—the Government of Israel has ordered the IDF to take measures against Hamas and other terrorist organizations. These measures are directed at destroying Hamas and other terrorist infrastructure in an effort to create more favorable defensive conditions for an extended period. </li></ul><ul><li>The war on terrorism and terrorist infrastructure is an arduous one. The IDF is prepared to expand its operations as necessary and will proceed according to its strategic assessments. The operation will continue for as long as is required. </li></ul><ul><li>Hamas operates intentionally from within the midst of densely populates areas. It uses Gaza’s civilians as human shields. Hamas locates weapons and ammunition stores in the basements of apartment buildings. It fires rockets and mortars from within school and hospital grounds. Children are sent to collect rocket launchers. </li></ul><ul><li>Hamas’ preparations are designed to force the IDF to act in populated areas. This tactic is similar to Hezbollah’s in southern Lebanon, and demonstrates the scope of information-exchange between members of the radical axis led by Iran. </li></ul><ul><li>Hamas has undertaken a monumental effort in creating a tunnel network and placing IEDs alongside the roads, to challenge IDF operations in the Gaza Strip. Hamas has created a minefield in the heart of Gaza’s civilian neighborhoods. </li></ul><ul><li>The IDF is doing its utmost to ensure the continued flow of humanitarian aid into Gaza. Hamas bears sole responsibility for the closing of the crossings and for the suffering endured by the Palestinian civilian population. </li></ul>Focal Points
