The strange calm between Israel and radicals inside the Gaza Strip that I reported last night has been smashed.   

As this story is being published, upwards of 8,000 people are RIOTING at the Border Fence between Gaza and Israel.  Several of the Rioters have thrown Improvised Explosive Devices (IED's) at Israeli Defense Force (IDF) troops.  At least two actual GRENADES were also thrown.

In response, IDF tanks have OPENED FIRE with machine guns upon those throwing explosives.  The situation is spinning rapidly out of control.

This is a fast-developing story, updates will appear below. Please check back. . .

 

UPDATE 11:28 AM EDT --

Ten Palestinians have been wounded in clashes near the Gaza-Israel border, including one who sustained a gunshot wound to the head in the Khan Yunis area, Gaza's Health Ministry reports. 

Since Wednesday night, Israel struck 150 targets in Gaza in retaliation to some 200 rockets fired from the Strip at Israel. Over 30 rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system. Several exploded inside Israel, including in the southern city of Be'er Sheva, located some 40 kilometers from the Strip. This was the first time rockets were fired at the city since the 2014 Gaza war. A woman in Israel was seriously wounded while two others suffered light injuries.

 

UPDATE 11:35 AM EDT --

Dozens of flaming kites and arson balloons are being released from Gaza into Israel; to set fire to anything they land on inside Israel.

IED thrown at forces near Karni ; numerous injuries including at least one critical from IDF fire.

 

IDF spokesperson said that Hamas is “playing with fire,” and that the military is prepared to “escalate our actions until quiet returns to the south.”

Rioters  cut the security fence and crossed the border east of Khan Younis.

Now 30 injuries, 1 critical in rioting along the Gaza border according to Gaza Ministry of Health. 

 

UPDATE 11:51 AM EDT --

So far 6 fires were ignited by fire kites and balloons from Gaza.

 

UPDATE 12:39 PM EDT -- 

Ashraf al-Qedra, health ministry spokesman in Gaza said in a press statement that 110 injured; 40 were treated in the fields and 70 were hospitalized, 40 of the 70 were shot, including five paramedics. 

 

UPDATE 2:25 PM EDT --

Netanyahu seems to have "lost his nerve."  During every Security Cabinet Meeting held to discuss the violence coming from Gaza, Unnamed ministers that are part of the security cabinet say "from the start of the meeting, Netanyahu torpedoed every idea to widen the strikes in Gaza and aggressively pushed for a ceasefire , Lieberman pushed for more strikes against Hamas."

The Ministers also say For some reason, Netanyahu is not only holding-back on confronting the violence coming from Gaza, he is intentionally interfering with all the Cabinet Ministers who want to confront such violence!  It is almost as if he simply doesn't care that parts of his country are daily being set afire, and dozens of his people are being attacked and seriously injured!  "Something is wrong with this picture. . ."

Hal Turner ANALYSIS

The remarks above from Israeli Cabinet Ministers are stunning and require some analysis.  

What IF the Netanyahu's idea is to KEEP Hamas in Gaza? If the other factions have all joined and are taking orders from Iran, the last thing Netanyahu would want is for Gaza to be handed over to Fatah.

Iran seems to be the real threat here. Perhaps Netanyahu thinks that once Israel can mitigate that Iran threat, THEN the gloves will come off on Hamas? 

There is real danger in such thinking.  If Iran __is__the real threat, then Israel waiting to deal with Iran before dealing with Hamas immediately opens a SECOND FRONT in any war with Iran;  Hamas would be that second front for Israel, attacking from the south. The West Bank would be a THIRD FRONT attacking form the west.  

And - forgive my brutally honest political appraisals here -- the lying snake that Lieberman is, getting his Palestinian buddies to lead Gaza is exactly what he would be aiming for. He and Zippi working together to bring about their 'new world order?' 

Zippi Livni in my opinion is the Israeli equivalent of Hillary Clinton....both would sell out their own mothers and countries for power, money and fame. The cunt Zippi would don a burka and sing Kumbaya on the Mount with the evil shits.

Again, just my opinion/analysis.   I may be wrong.  IF MY ASSESSMENTS OF LIEBERMAN AND ZIPPI LIVNI ARE WRONG, PLEASE LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW.  

3: 22 PM EDT -- WOW DID I JUST GET A PHONE CALL CORRECTION :  

I just got quite a phone call over this "analysis" - from an incredibly high-ranking official in a government.   Turns out, Iran wants to draw Israel into the Gaza strip. Then unleash Hezbollah and the Golan forces. Iran is running this shitshow and they are out of time.  Once economic sanctions cause oil shipments to stop, each day Iran gets weaker and poorer.  They MUST start their war with Israel before the oil sanctions kick in or they will lose their chance to destroy Israel forever.  THAT is what this Gaza nonsense is about.  THAT is why Netanyahu is not allowing himself to be drawn-in. He hasn't lost his nerve, he's got Balls of steel! ! ! Apologies Mr. Prime Minister and to the others as well.  Looks like I got the above VERY wrong.  When I'm wrong, I say so.

 

2:43 PM SIT REP: Approx 9,000 rioters are gathered along the security fence between Gaza and Israel. They are burning tires and hurling rocks, explosive devices, and firebombs at IDF troops and the security fence.  And every single Arab news source is calling them 'peaceful protests'

 

Palestinian media reports an artillery strike on a Hamas border outpost east of Al Bureij 

Second Palestinian shot dead on Gaza border- Saeed Aloul, 55 years old, shot east of Rafah

 

 UPDATE 3:19 PM EDT --

2 killed , 242 wounded, 9,000 NOW RIOTING . . . .

    Good strategy on Bibi's part to remain in place until Soliemani has to move under duress of time. IDA is relatively secure. As well, Israel can follow the flow of communication and couriers to get a lock on key contact and transit points. Get them all in place, then strike.

    I want to point something out. The Israelis sit in their tanks(WE paid for), or the drone operations centers(WE paid for) , or fly high above Gaza in their US-supplied warplanes, dropping the latest in US-supplied high tech lethal munitions, and imagine themselves the heroes they read about in the Torah. The weapons being used in the current Israeli incursion into the Gaza strip easily confirms that the battle plan of the Netanyahu government towards the civilians in Gaza is Genocide, Pure and simple. Israel wants no survivors from this one. It wants no witnesses to its crimes. Each weapon used in this slaughter is designed to kill with maximum damage, maximum brutality and maximum pain and suffering. What Israel is doing right now, is truly the most hideous of war crimes of the modern age... Google these terms: (there's more but standard fare for this incursion is)
    "White Phosphorus".
    "DIME Munitions".
    "Flechette Bombs" http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/israelgaza-conflict-israeli-military-using-flechette-rounds-in-gaza-strip-9617480.html

    Let no one lose sight of the real essence of the issue: the Zionists steal land and either kill outright or generally make life miserable for the Palestinians who, when they respond, are accused of "terrorism". The real terrorists since the establishment of Israel are some factions of the population-- and the present Israeli government.
    When a guerrilla organization with at most 10,000 fighters achieves a draw with one of the mightiest armies in the world, equipped with the most ultra-modern weapons, that is by itself a kind of victory.
    Hamas has not only shown a lot of courage during the fighting, but also surprising ingenuity in preparing for this campaign. It is still standing upright. In Israel, the terrible pictures of civilian death and destruction by "the most moral army on Earth" did not evoke compassion. On the contrary. People were proud of it.

    The Palestinians huddle in their giant open-air prison, without an army, a navy, or an air force, and fight back with home-made rockets made out of plumbing supplies.Israel has the newest,most modern,unlimited weapons.
    Israel’s actions belie its words. The facts speak much louder than the disdainful words and immoral lectures made repeatedly before this Council by the Israeli representative, all while his government and army kill and maim innocent children, women and men.
    Not since Thermopylae has the world seen such courage in the face of overwhelming odds. The Palestinians have balls the US and Israel can only dream of, and the world will remember their courage against the tyrants, and the lies by the corporate media's presstitutes and whorespondents trying to protect Israel's aggression!
    GAZA will rank with the Alamo, the Warsaw Ghetto, the Battle of Stalingrad .....
    LIVE FREE or DIE ........ ever hear that?

    The Battle of FEMA-CAMP-GAZA ...... FEMA-CAMP-GAZA ........ "conservatives" running around getting the vapors over FEMA CAMPS need to WAKE UP. Who is training the GUARDS for FEMA camps? ISRAEL.

        Haven’t you heard? Israel attacks itself so it can attack Gaza. People like this will always have an excuse to make everyone but Israel a victim. To these people the Jews (especially the Israeli Jews) are the worst form of life on earth and should be removed. How do you have a rational conversation with people who have what I would consider to just a little bit worse than Trump derangement syndrome? Symptoms are so similar

    Moreover Pres T intends to break Iran -- first economically then other methods. T & Bibi are very connected. Silence speaks volumes. ...notice how quiet T is re Bibi. Albeit, Iran will not be conquered and will realign with a larger alliance and that alliance will overwhelm Israel, yet will not prevail because providence will.

    Barb Kateusz · 17:16 08/10/2018
    Don't mean to "go religious" on everybody but Bibi believes in Bible Prophecy and he knows that sooner, rather than later, Israel will be confronted with an Arab coalition, of the nations that surround it, fulfilling Psalm 83. They will join in on Iran's attack. Looks like the stage is being set for that to take place, based on the info your were given, Hal. All the nations of the world are just "pawns" on God's chess board. Israel has no role in the "new world order" and the US will not be around to be a part of it either.

    PS... Hey Sammy, I hope from some incredible twist of fate.... you find out that you are Jewish!!! What poetic justice that would be!

      JUDAS ISCARIOT was a Jew "in good standing " with the Tribe.
      Jesus Christ was "herem" excommunicated

      If you are not an active member you are not a Jew - -- it is a TRIBE not a race.

    Hal, those who have experience with hostile engagements know and understand the obvious is rarely the root. Your readership should understand chess. Israel has portions of leadership, like America, that plays foolishly. Chess requires one to think 3 or more moves ahead across various fronts.

    Hal: We rely on your reporting and appreciate your comments. For the most part, you keep them separate, thank you. The use of the word "cunt" is very appropriate. Israel has been able to avoid the use of neutrons so far a tribute to Bibi's skills.

    >The name "Golgo 13" is a reference to the death of Jesus Christ. Golgo is short for Golgotha, the place of Jesus' crucifixion, while the number 13 is considered an unlucky number.[3] Also, Golgo 13's logo is a skeleton wearing a crown of thorns.

    I came to the same conclusion as the government official that called you early this morning. Israel is a three front war waiting to happen. One front is happening now. I suspect that Qods Force Commander General Soliemani is sitting in his command post opposite the Golan right now waiting for Israel to commit to Gaza so he can execute the Iraqi Shiite militias against the Golan. Hezbollah will be committed against northern Israel with a tremendous missile barrage and possibly a ground invasion. All roads lead to Ali Khamenei.

    fvk the jew bastards.

    ************** HAL TURNER INSERT:
    I have kept "Sammy's" comments from appearing in here because what you see above is a MILD example of the crap he tries to post. Sammy, let me tell you something: In June, 2009, the federal government of the United States sent about 15 FBI people to my house to arrest me over my web site commentary. When the case went to trial, the US Prosecutors used COMMENTS LIKE YOURS from the reader comments area at that time, to show the jury that "my audience is a bunch of violent extremists" which they then argued, made MY words "a threat." I got put in prison from writing that three federal Judges were "traitors the to the Constitution" and further saying they "deserve to be killed' but it was the existence of comments from people like YOU that gave credence to their argument that I should be jailed because saying what I said with people like YOU around, was dangerous. I am NOT going to let some Assistant US Attorney prosecute me again because YOU want to spew your shit here. Go spew your crap somewhere else. It is not wanted here.

    Or maybe "Sammy" is posting this crap here because he is being PAID to do that? Is he being PAID to set people upby deliberately posting violent and hateful things on politically conservative sites? Maybe "Sammy" is just a liberal plant?

    Either way, GTFO - you are not welcome here.

    They sure are playing with fire, this is political arson. The flame balloons are not intended to set cities alight, they know that isn't realistic. They must know that the damage will be negligible on the state level, and that can't be their objective. What they're really trying to set fire to is public sentiment.

    Hal your wishes of genocide will return to haunt you...............I bless Palestine and the Israeli who have taken up temporary shelter there........May they all find a PEACEFUL resolution and may the Zionists find a good home where they can live in peace and plenty forever............I also bless you and hope you find your way back to humanity.

        Forgive the Palistinian people Hal and, their desire for freedom and self determination as, this is the only way to free your self from anger and hatred , that lead to your wish that the Armed Zionist forces " Go from door to door in Gaza and put a permanent stop to any Arab terrorism" as you believe all Arabs are unreasoning..............Is this not a call for genocide Hal?

        What do you think angry and fearful Israeli soldiers will do? What they have done in the past and, what they are doing on the Iron curtain around the Auschwitz of GAZA..........Im sure it wont be bread breaking.........Hal come back to humanity and humainity.


        May you be blessed with wisdom, happiness joy, wealth, peace, love, joy and compassion.....God loves all his children including you.

    Israel should blow them the face of the earth and end it once and for all use a huge bomb and blow them to kingdom come.

    maybe that would teach Hamas a lesson on who there screwing with.
