Operation Pillar of Defense: Summary of Events

Published on: November 22, 2012

On November 14, in response to incessant rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip, the IDF launched a widespread campaign against terror targets in Gaza. The operation, called Pillar of Defense, had two main goals: cripple terror organizations in the Gaza Strip and defend Israelis living under fire. Here’s a summary of the events which took place during the operation.

The operation opened when the IDF surgically targeted Ahmed Jabari, head of Hamas’ military wing in the Gaza Strip. Jabari was directly responsible for executing terror attacks against Israel in the past.

 

During the next eight days, the IDF targeted more than 1,500 terror sites across the Gaza Strip. The sites that were targeted were positively identified by precise intelligence over the course of several months, including:

Pillar of Defense Summary

Top-ranking Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists who were targeted included:

  • Ahmed Jabari, head of Hamas’ military wing – targeted on November 14
  • Hab’s Hassan Us Msamch, senior operative in Hamas’ police – targeted on November 15
  • Ahmed Abu Jalal, Commander of the military wing in Al-Muazi – targeted on November 16
  • Khaled Shaer, senior operative in the anti-tank operations – targeted on November 16
  • Osama Kadi, senior operative in the smuggling operations in the southern Gaza Strip – targeted on November 17
  • Muhammad Kalb, senior operative in the aerial defense operations – targated on November 17
  • Ramz Harb, Islamic Jihad senior operative in propaganda in Gaza city – targeted on November 19

For the first time ever — Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist groups fired long-range rockets, such as the Fajr-5, toward Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Though the IDF severely damaged the terrorist organizations’ long-range rocket arsenal, more than 3.5 million Israelis are still under the threat of Hamas’ rocket fire.

Throughout the operation, the IDF did everything that it could to minimize harm to civilians in Gaza. Despite the IDF’s warnings, Hamas urged Palestinian civilians in Gaza to ignore the IDF warnings.

During the eight days of the operation — and in the weeks leading up to it — life was unbearable for more than 3.5 million Israelis. From November 14 to November 21, Palestinian terrorist groups fired more than 1,506 rockets at Israel.

Of those 1,506 rockets fired from Gaza, more than 800 rockets struck Israel, damaging homes, schools and other civilian areas. Some of rockets reached the Tel Aviv and Jerusalem areas.

421 rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome, which saved countless Israeli lives. 152 rockets fired from Gaza crashed back into Gaza.

Despite the IDF’s best efforts to protect everyone in Israel, five Israeli civilians were killed due to rocket fire, while an additional 240 Israeli civilians were injured. In addition, Cpl. Yosef Fartuk, 18, from Emmanuel, was killed on November 20 by a rocket fired from Gaza into Israel.

Since Hamas seized power in the Gaza Strip in 2007, the terrorist group has turned the coastal area into a forward base for Iran. The IDF is determined to continue targeting sites that are used to carry out terror attacks against Israel and its citizens.

Hitlery and Hamas…. A Picture Worth 57 Words

November 21, 2012 1 comment

 

Take a good, hard look at hitlery with her islamic terrorist pal, abbas, today.  

communists and islamic terrorists, hamas…… BFF’s.

 

We, the People are their enemies, while the enemies of America are their allies. They’ve successfully redefined the term “terrorist” and “TREASON”.

 

I wonder if she brought iranian terrorist valerie jarrett with her to make some more dirty deals with iran, hezbollah and hamas.

 

 

The obama Regime Continues Their March Forward To The islamic caliphate. Next up? JORDAN.

November 20, 2012 Leave a comment

TWG: And here it is, Folks.  We knew this was coming. The obama/jarrett/clinton regime are desperate to install their islamic caliphate across the world, starting with the middle east.  We know that’s what they did in Egypt, Libya and other areas, and we KNOW that’s what they’re doing in Syria and Jordan.  They’ve been trafficking weapons to the muslim brotherhood, (hence, the terrorist attacks and murders in Benghazi) and they’ve bypassed Congress and TRANSFERRED BILLION$ in American Taxpayer funds to the muslim brotherhood and hamas (KNOWN terrorist groups….. Treason anyone? AIDING AND ABETTING THE ENEMY IS TREASON. DO YOU CARE?)   Not only does the UN require the islamic caliphate, but obama and clinton require it, and have promised it to their masters and to their islamic terrorist pals.   William Ayers and the rest of their “American”  terrorists have been VERY busy stirring things up over there to install their muslim brotherhood pals and their caliphate is coming along perfectly as planned, although Syria is taking a tad bit longer than expected, it’ll happen according to their diabolical plan.  Once Jordan and Syria are fed to the muslim brotherhood, ISRAEL IS FINISHED. They will be surrounded on ALL sides by muslim terrorists who want to exterminate them forever and have made that goal perfectly clear in no uncertain terms.  It should be clear to EVERYONE that obama, clinton, jarrett, panetta, and the entire obama regime are hell bent on Israel and America’s total destruction.  If you don’t understand that by now, you’re not paying attention. Do you care about your children?  What kind of world are they going to have to live under islam?   If you don’t already know what that’s going to look like, you had best start informing yourself.  That is, if you care.  Half this Nation doesn’t know and doesn’t give a damn. This is the MOST dangerous and despicable case of America’s National suicide by apathy.  Sure am glad I won’t have to live long in this world they’re creating for you.

 

“The future must not belong to those who would insult the prophet of islam.”  ~Barack Hussain Obama

God bless the America we are trying to create. ~Hillary Clinton

 

Anyone want to bet me the UAE and Qatar are next on obama’s list to overthrow via his protesting thugs for “democracy”?  What?  You think they’re not planning that already?  THEY ARE.   Watch what they do, not what they say.  THEIR ALLEGIANCE IS WITH ISLAM, THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, HAMAS, IRAN and the CALIPHATE.

 

Is Obama Selling Out the King of Jordan to the Muslim Brotherhood?

November 20, 2012 By

 

Jordan is one of the remaining “moderate” states in the region, not because it’s an especially wonderful place, but because after the Arab Spring, much of the region has gone Islamist. The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is reasonably moderate and friendly to America mainly because it has no other options, with no oil and surrounded by larger countries that would love to gobble it up, it had no choice but to swap out its dependency on the UK for a dependency on the US.

The Muslim Brotherhood would love to take over Jordan, as they have taken over Egypt, with Obama’s assistance, and as they are trying to take over Syria. But the United States appeared to have exempted Jordan from the Jihad of the Arab Spring. Until now...

TWG:  We are going to have to deal with these uncivilized SAVAGES .   The leftists are supporting this terrorism and bloodthirsty savagery.   It takes a terrorist to support TERRORISTS, and apparently, we have plenty of terrorists right here in America, coming out of our public school system.

Hamas executes six suspected collaborators with Israel; body dragged through street

By Karin Laub

Palestinian gunmen ride motorcycles as they drag the body of a man (not seen),… ( SUHAIB SALEM )

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Masked gunmen publicly shot dead six suspected collaborators with Israel in a large Gaza City intersection Tuesday, witnesses said. An Associated Press reporter saw a mob surrounding five of the bloodied corpses shortly after the killing.

Some in the crowd stomped and spit on the bodies. A sixth corpse was tied to a motorcycle and dragged through the streets as people screamed, “Spy! Spy!”

The Hamas military wing, Izzedine al-Qassam, claimed responsibility in a large handwritten note attached to a nearby electricity pole. Hamas said the six were killed because they gave Israel information about fighters and rocket launching sites.

The killing came on the seventh day of an Israeli military offensive that has killed more than 120 Palestinians, both militants and civilians. Israel has launched hundreds of airstrikes, targeting rocket launching sites, weapons caches and homes of Hamas activists, as Palestinians fired hundreds of rockets at Israel.

Israel relies on a network of local informers to identify its targets in Gaza.

The six were killed on Tuesday afternoon in Gaza City’s Sheik Radwan neighborhood.

Witnesses said a van stopped in the intersection, and four masked men pushed the six suspected informers out of the vehicle. Salim Mahmoud, 18, said the gunmen ordered the six to lie face down in the street and then shot them dead. Another witness, 13-year-old Mokhmen al-Gazhali, said the

informers were killed one by one, as he mimicked the sound of gunfire.They said only a few people were in the street at first — most Gazans have been staying indoors because of the Israeli airstrikes — but the crowd quickly grew after the killings. Eventually several hundred men pushed and shoved to get a close look at the bodies, lying in a jumble on the ground. One man spit at the corpses, another kicked the head of one of the dead men.

“They should have been killed in a more brutal fashion so others don’t even think about working with the occupation (Israel),” said one of the bystanders, 24-year-old Ashraf Maher.

One body was then tied by a cable to the back of a motorcycle and dragged through the streets. A number of gunmen on motorcycles rode along as the body was pulled past a house of mourning for victims of an Israeli airstrike.

There is broad consensus among Palestinians that informers for Israel deserve harsh punishment, and it is rare to hear someone speak out against killings of alleged collaborators. Such public killings been carried out in the West Bank and Gaza since the first uprising against Israeli occupation in the late 1980s.

In Israel’s last major Gaza offensive four years ago, 17 suspected collaborators who fled after their prisons were hit in airstrikes were later shot dead in extra-judicial killings.

During the current offensive, Tuesday’s killings brought to eight the number of suspected informers being shot dead in public. On Friday, the body of one alleged informer was found in a garbage bin, and another was shot dead in the street. Hamas claimed responsibility for both killings.

Since seizing Gaza in 2007, Hamas has executed four informers by firing squad, and about a dozen more are on death row in Gaza.

Heartbreaking, awful photo: Netanyahu tweets ‘Hamas deliberately targets our children’; Rocket attack strikes Tel Aviv ; Update: Reports that no rocket landed inside city; Update: Holon hit? Airport closed

I saw today a picture of a bleeding Israeli baby. deliberately targets our children bit.ly/W9uYkA pic.twitter.com/z8orVsfE

Horrific and devastating. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with Israel and its children.

As Twitchy has reported, IDF launched a “widespread campaign on terror sites” and Israel has been under heavy fire for days.

The IDF has been providing information and horrific photos via its Twitter feed. Prime Minister Netanyahu is doing the same.

Watch as 17-year old Paz of Ashkelon talks about what it’s like to live under constant threat of attack in Israel. bit.ly/T1O1im

We are not prepared to make peace with a situation in which Israel’s citizens are menaced by the terror of rocket fire bit.ly/ZuY6qL

More from Netanyahu’s statement to foreign press:

“In recent days and weeks, Hamas and the other terrorist organizations in Gaza have made normal life impossible for over one million Israelis. No government would tolerate a situation where nearly a fifth of its people live under a constant barrage of rockets and missile fire, and Israel will not tolerate this situation.

This is why my government has instructed the Israeli Defense Forces to conduct surgical strikes against the terrorist infrastructure in Gaza. And this is why Israel will continue to take whatever action is necessary to defend our people.
I want to remind you that seven years ago, Israel withdrew from every square inch of Gaza. Now Hamas, they took over the areas we vacated. What did it do? Rather than build a better future for the residents of Gaza, the Hamas leadership, backed by Iran, turned Gaza into a terrorist stronghold.

They fired thousand of rockets at our cities, at our towns, at our civilians, at our children. They’ve smuggled thousands of rockets and missiles into Gaza, and they deliberately place these rockets and missiles in civilian areas: in homes, in schools, near hospitals. This year alone, the fired over one thousand rockets and missiles at Israel, included close to 200 rockets in the last 24 hours.

He goes onto explain there is no moral equivalency here. Hamas deliberately targets civilians, including children. They are terrorists who not only target children, but place rockets next to their own children. Hamas is a terrorist group, solely focused on death and destruction.

Netanyahu continued tweeting as well.

No country would agree to such a situation; Israel is not prepared to reconcile itself to such a situation bit.ly/ZuY6qL

Hamas and the terror organizations have elected in recent days to escalate their attacks on Israel’s citizens bit.ly/ZuY6qL

The terror organizations hurt our citizens with premeditation, while they deliberately conceal themselves behind their own citizens.

We in contradistinction refrain to the extent possible from harming civilians; this is a fundamental difference between us and them

They would simply like to wipe us off the face of the earth and they have no reservations about harming innocent civilians

Exactly. And some sickly support and defend Hamas?

It continues.

Our thoughts & prayers are with over a million brave Israeli citizens who for another night seek shelter from endless rocket attacks.

@EvanPokroy Where are you in Israel? My family in Beer Sheva had a sleepless night, rockets raining down frequently. Not good.

This Twitterer raises a very good point:

Good morning to our friends in . While you were sleeping, 3 Israelis were killed when a rocket hit their house.

.@IDFSpokesperson remember when @BarackObama said “U.S. will stand with Israel if attacked”? Me too.

While President Obama has shown himself to be anything but pro-Israel, we stand and will continue to stand with Israel.

Update: Netanyahu continues tweeting.

In past 24 hrs made clear it will not tolerate rocket attacks on its civilians. I hope & other terrorists in Gaza got message

The terrorists in are committing a double war crime. They fire at Israeli civilians, and they hide behind Palestinian civilians

Iran commander warns Israel, US against attack

September 16, 2012 1 comment

[TWG: Do you recall back when the leftists here screamed about Iran’s “right” to build nuclear facilities? “Peaceful purposes” they said.  Iran has made it crystal clear their intentions with regard to nukes and Israel’s right to exist and to defend Herself.  And now, Iran is threatening the United States of America in very specific detail.  These so-called “negotiations” have proven futile, as Iran marches toward their full-blown nuclear holocaust.]

 

September 16, 2012

TEHRAN (AP) — The top commander in Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard warned Sunday that his country’s missiles will ensure “nothing will remain” of Israel if it takes military action against Tehran over its controversial nuclear program.

Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari also warned that Iran might close the Straits of Hormuz if it is attacked, withdraw from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and hit U.S. bases in the Middle East. Such warnings and references to Israel’s destruction have been made before by Iranian officials. But Gen. Jafari’s comments to a Tehran news conference were an unusually detailed, strongly worded and comprehensive listing of the means that Iran says it has to retaliate against a strike on its nuclear facilities.

The U.S. and Israel have left open the possibility of such a strike if Iran does not back down from what they say are a push to develop nuclear weapons. Iran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.

“Our response to Israel is clear: I think nothing will remain of Israel (should it attack Iran). Given Israel’s small land area and its vulnerability to a massive volume of Iran’s missiles, I don’t think any spot in Israel will remain safe,” he said.

He said Iran’s response to any attack will begin near the Israeli border. The Islamic Republic has close ties with militants in Gaza and Lebanon, both of whom have rocket arsenals that could be used for cross-border strikes.

He said he did not believe however that Israel would attack on its own. Should the U.S. launch a strike, Jafari suggested that Iran could respond with missile salvos at U.S. bases in the Gulf. “The US military bases sprawled around Iran are considered a big vulnerability. Even the missile shields that they have set up, based on information we have, could only work for a few missiles but when exposed to a massive volume of missiles, the shields will lose their efficiency and will not work,” he said.

He also said that Iran warned that oil shipments through the strategic Strait of Hormuz will be in jeopardy if a war breaks out between Iran and the United States. Iranian officials have previously threatened to close the waterway, the route for a fifth of the world’s oil, but less frequently in recent months.

“If a war breaks out where one side is Iran and the other side is the West and U.S., it’s natural that a problem should occur in the Strait of Hormuz. Export of energy will be harmed. It’s natural that this will happen,” he said.

Gen. Jafari said that, if attacked, Iran will no longer be committed to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, under whose terms U.N. inspectors visit Iranian nuclear sites. He said however that this does not mean that Iran would build a nuclear weapon.

“If the world and international organizations fail to prevent such an attack, it’s natural that Iran’s commitments (to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty) would naturally change and the situation would be different from the past. These are the risks and consequences that such an attack will bring about, and these matters would be a deterrent.”

Jafari’s comments come as U.S.-led naval forces from the West and Arab allies gather for naval maneuvers in the Persian Gulf that include mine-sweeping exercises.
