Groups of Israeli women and children captured in Hamas cross-border invasion, brought to Gaza
As Israeli military and security forces repel Hamas’s cross-border terror offensive and subdue the remaining pockets held by terrorist fighters, horrific details of the biggest terror attack in country’s recent history are emerging.
At least 150 Israelis have been murdered and over 1,000 wounded by terrorist intruders from Gaza. Dozens of Israelis, including women and children, have been captured by Hamas taken into Gaza, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed.

“Israeli authorities confirmed Saturday evening that at least 100 people were killed and dozens others were captured in a shock offensive by Hamas on southern and central Israel,” the Israeli news website Ynet reported.
Hamas = ISIS
Same ideology, different names.
The footage coming out of southern Israel makes this absolutely clear.

Fighting is still on in isolated pockets in several locations across southern Israel. The Jerusalem Post reported Saturday afternoon:
In addition to the rockets, dozens of terrorists infiltrated numerous border points, the IDF said. There was also a maritime infiltration attempt into Kibbutz Zikim, as well as numerous border fence breaches. (…)
In Kibbutz Be’eri, also in Southern Israel, Hamas took dozens of Israelis hostages, according to media reports.
“We are conducting combat operations in 22 locations,” the IDF said. ” There is no settlement without our forces, in all the communities. Some settlements have been cleared, but additional sweeps are needed before declaring them safe.”

The IDF is reportedly gearing up for a massive counter-terrorist operation aimed at liberating Israeli hostages and targeting the perpetrators of the dastardly attack. “At this time, the IDF is reinforcing the south and the communities surrounding the Gaza Strip with several operational forces,” IDF Spokesperson, Rear. Admiral Daniel Hagari, said in a statement obtained by the Legal Insurrection. “Operational commanders are arriving to manage the combat in each location. In parallel to this, we have begun a wide mobilization of reservists for all IDF units.”

The reservists are being called to duty for a major offensive. “The Chief of General Staff has announced an extensive mobilization of reserve forces. Numerous IDF soldiers, including special forces, have been dispatched to the area surrounding the Gaza Strip and are operating in a number of different locations in the division in order to protect the residents of southern Israel,” an IDF statement disclosed.

The Iranian regime, which arms and finances Hamas and other Gaza terrorist groups, congratulated them for deadly terror attacks that took lives of innocent Israeli civilians. The Israeli news website Ynet reported:
An adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on Saturday congratulated Palestinian fighters for launching the biggest attack on Israel in years, the semi-official ISNA news site reported.
“We congratulate the Palestinian fighters,” it quoted Rahim Safavi as saying. “We will stand by the Palestinian fighters until the liberation of Palestine and Jerusalem.” (…)
ISNA later quoted an Iranian foreign ministry spokesperson as saying that Hamas attacks were proof of the Palestinians’ increased confidence in the face of Israel.
Iran’s regime-handpicked parliament also cheered the attacks. “At a parliament session on Saturday, Iranian lawmakers chanted “Down with Israel,” “Down with America,” and “Welcome Palestine,” according to a video published by Tasnim news agency,” The Times of Israel reported.

The Hamas attacks come amid recent Iranian efforts to create an axis of proxy terror groups in the region aimed at encircling Israel. “Over the last four decades, the Iranian regime has built a network of armed groups on Israel’s borders to create instability and foment terrorism. Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, and a mosaic of other terrorist organizations receive funding, training, and weapons from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps – Quds Force (IRGC-QF),” Joe Truzman explained in a report recently published by DC-based Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD).DONATE
