Let this serve as the further demolition of the excuse-making for these Hamas monsters. An interesting look at what the Israelis are discovering inside Gaza.
Operating behind enemy lines in Gaza during the conflict with Hamas, the elite Maglan unit has attacked dozens of terrorists cells that fired on the IDF, destroyed areas used to launch rockets at Israel, and killed and injured 40 terrorists in recent days.
A senior source from the unit revealed that its members have targeted Hamas gunmen waiting in ambush for the IDF’s Ground Forces, striking the threats right before Israeli forces pass by the ambushes.
The Maglan unit has detected and destroyed forward Hamas posts and rocket launchers. It has detected a cross-border underground attack tunnel leading into Israel from Gaza, and found 20 bomb-laden, booby-trapped homes in Gaza. The unit also uncovered a very large quantity of weapons, and enemy intelligence files in raids.
Despite the world left inexplicably rallying to the cause of these terrorist cockroaches, morale is dwindling.
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.”
Hamas built a network of tunnels that begin a few kilometers away from the Israeli border, and pass under the frontier, the source said, in a bid to enable dozens of terrorists to infiltrate the country. In response, the IDF has used a wide array of firepower and ground units to tackle the challenge, employing a rapid maneuver to “shatter the enemy and deny it freedom of operation in closed areas, where it is based,” he stated.
“We move in as quickly as possible, engage in close combat, and prevent the enemy from using its tunnels to enter our territory,” the source said. He recalled seizing large numbers of weapons, suicide bomb belts, and projectile launchers in recent raids.
It’s so bad even the suicide bombers don’t want to kill themselves.
Additionally, the source said, it is “impossible” to demolish the threats via long-range firepower. Only a ground offensive that reaches the tunnel shafts can get the job done, he said. “This shows that despite intelligence, there is no alternative to getting there and destroying targets from up close,” the source said.
Hamas has adapted well to Israel’s air power by going underground, but “it does not know how to deal with ground units that are storming its assets. We have the upper hand, and this is showing results,” he added.
“I have not entered one civilian home that did not have weapons, suicide belts, or booby traps in it. You can see the booby traps from the outside,” the source said. Any home found to be containing women and children leads to an immediate halt of the raid, he added. “We hold our fire, there’s no question. We don’t take chances with children and women. We allow them to leave, and then continue the raid. That’s who we are, and this is the source of our strength,” he added.
And who the terrorists are are a bunch of pathetic cowards hiding behind women and children.
