yesterday The Israel Defense Force conducted an airstrike to claim the life of high ranking Hamas leader Ahmed Jabari. Footage of Jabari’s final moments was uploaded to YouTube by the IDF within minutes, and the Israeli military’s international spokesperson began to taunt remaining militants inside of Gaza. Hamas reportedly responded by firing more than 200 rockets across Israel’s southern border.
today Israel responded by attacking a number of suspected launch sites and is reportedly amassing forces (including tanks) along the nation’s southern border in preparation for a ground offensive. Both sides have reported casualties, primarily civilians, and both the IDF and Hamas have attempted to use images of slain children to portray their opposition as the aggressors. Anonymous has also decided to enter the fray, following word that the Israeli government planned to cut internet connectivity inside of Gaza. source
