At about 2:00 AM eastern US time, (9:00 AM local time in Gaza) the Israeli Defense Force began announcing on loudspeakers that Al-Shifa Hospital had to be evacuated within 1 HOUR; those inside told to "head toward the sea."
Israel says the Hamas terror organization operates a command center and labyrinth of tunnels underneath the hospital.
Israel has made repeated calls for the hospital to be evacuated to the south, however medical professionals say many of the patients cannot be moved.
There was no immediate comment from the Israel Defense Forces.
"NO ARAB TROOPS IN GAZA"
In a stinging rebuke of word that came out of Egypt yesterday, the Foreign Minister of Jordan, Ayman Safadi, speaking at the Manama Dialogue this morning, said: "Let me be very clear... there will be no Arab troops going to Gaza. None. We're not going to be seen as the enemy."
This remark comes after word leaked that Egyptian President Sisi told his army "Prepare to enter Gaza and implement a no-fly zone." (Story Here)
Technically, Egyptians are not considered "Arabic" genetically.
Egyptians are genetically not Arabs from Arabia. Culturally, they inherit the Ancient Egyptian culture, Coptic culture the Islamic culture, the Turkish culture and speak Arabic. As most know, spoken Egyptian Arabic is very different from Khaleeji Arabic (Gulf States like Saudi Arabia, UAE etc.)
Given the specificity of the Jordanian Foreign Minister's remarks today, it seems if Egypt goes into Gaza, they will go alone.
Late word this morning over Intelligence circuits reveals a shrewdly interesting development: Someone is going to "withdraw" from the Oslo Accords.

This is necessary because this is a CLOUD-BASED web site. The way it works is YOU READ . . . I GET BILLED for "Data Transfer."
Despite being politely asked for voluntary donations, few people ever bothered to donate. Then, despite being asked to click an ad within a story to generate ad revenue for this site, the majority of the general public couldn't be bothered with that, either. So there's no reason to give the general public free news anymore; they don't pull their own weight.
With tens-of-thousands of people reading stories here every day, the costs nearly drove the site out of business.
In order to be able to continue providing cutting-edge news, often hours or even DAYS before Drudge and most of the "mass-media" -- if they even cover it at all -- I need to be able to sustain this effort. To do that, I rely on folks like YOU contributing a pittance of about $1 a week; which is chump-change that you won't even miss! Yet that small amount makes all the difference in the world to the continued existence of this web site.
In the final analysis, knowledge is power. Getting information first, or info that other sources simply don't report, is usually well worth a few bucks in the long run.
