IDF Eliminated Over 8,000 Gaza Terrorists Since October 7

IDF Eliminated Over 8,000 Gaza Terrorists Since October 7

Israeli Defense Minister Gallant: Hamas’ Gaza chief Yahya Sinwar “will soon meet the barrels of our guns.”

Amid reports that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has eliminated more than 8,000 terrorists after eleven weeks of campaign in Gaza, the military is closing in on Hamas’s Gaza chief Yahya Sinwar, Israel’s defense minister said.

“One thing is clear – Yahya Sinwar now hears the IDF tractors above him, the Air Force bombs and the IDF’s actions. He will soon meet the barrels of our guns,” Defense Minister Yoav Gallant declared Friday. Sinwar, who is regarded as the key architect of the October 7 massacre, is believed to be hiding in southern Gaza as Israeli ground troops bring most of the Hamas stronghold in the north under their control.

The Israeli news website Arutz Sheva reported defense minister’s remarks:

Speaking at the conclusion of a daily assessment of the situation with senior members of the defense establishment, Gallant said, “The activity of the IDF and the defense establishment continues. In the north of the Gaza Strip – the operation is gradually completing the goals we set: Disbanding the Hamas battalions and denying their underground capabilities. We also operate in the Khan Yunis area and the south of the Gaza Strip, and we will operate in other places in the future.”

“One thing is clear – Yahya Sinwar now hears the IDF tractors above him, the Air Force bombs and the IDF’s actions. He will soon meet the barrels of our guns,” the Defense Minister vowed.

“We will go and deepen our activity and complete all our goals – first of all, the elimination of the Hamas terrorist organization, the denial of its military and governmental capabilities, and the return of the hostages to Israel,” Gallant added. “The operation will be a drawn-out operation, requiring patience, but we will reach an achievement.”

Since the Gaza ground offensive began on October 27, the IDF has rounded up hundreds of terror operatives for interrogation to Israel. “More than 200 Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist operatives apprehended by the IDF and ISA in the Gaza Strip over the last week were taken for further questioning in Israel,” the military disclosed in a press release on Saturday morning. “Overall, over 700 operatives from terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip have been taken for further questioning thus far.”

The Israeli TV channel i24NEWS reported Saturday:

Security services have detained over 700 terrorists in Gaza and have transferred them for further investigation Israel

Israeli army reserve colonel Olivier Rafovitch on Saturday told i24NEWS that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has killed 8,000 terrorists affiliated with Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) in the Gaza Strip since the start of the Israel-Hamas war. 2,000 of those are said to have been eliminated since the end of the truce at the end of November.

700 were stated detained by the IDF and Shin Bet and transferred to Israel for further investigation in Israel. Israeli security services aim to obtain the intelligence on strategic targets in the Strip.

The actual number of slain terrorists could be even higher as Israeli soldiers and combat engineers continue to destroy hundreds of tunnel shafts running across the jihadist-ridden enclave. The IDF on Friday blow up a major underground terror complex in the heart of Gaza city.

“Israel has blown up what it says was a “subterranean terror city” underneath a central Gaza City square that was used to plot the October 7 massacre,” the British newspaper Telegraph reported Friday. “The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said it discovered “terrorist infrastructure” underneath Palestine Square, with lengthy tunnels connecting hiding places and offices belonging to Hamas’s senior military and political leaders.”

Suspected Iranian drone strike hits Israel-linked ship off India’s coast

After a series of recent maritime attacks on Israeli ships by Iran-backed Houthi Islamic terrorist group in the Red Sea, an Israel-linked ship was hit by a suspected Iranian drone strike off the coast of India, media reports on Saturday suggest. The tanker carrying crude oil to a southern Indian port was set ablaze by the attack drone. The ship’s crew was reportedly rescued by the Indian Navy.

The Reuters reported the latest attack of Israel-affiliated ship:

An Israel-affiliated merchant vessel was struck by an uncrewed aerial vehicle off India’s west coast, British maritime security firm Ambrey said on Saturday, in the first such known attack so far away from the Red Sea since the Gaza war.

A fire on the Liberian-flagged tanker was extinguished without crew casualties in the incident 200 km (120 miles) southwest of the Indian city of Veraval, it said, adding some “structural damage was also reported and some water was taken onboard”.

“Merchant vessels are advised these types of attacks are typically targeted at Israel-affiliated shipping, but have in the past mistakenly hit previously Israel-affiliated vessels,” Ambrey said. “This event fell within Ambrey’s Iranian UAV heightened threat area.”

An Indian Navy official told Reuters that it responded to a request for assistance on Saturday morning.

“The safety of crew and ship has been ascertained. The Navy has also dispatched a warship to arrive in the area and provide assistance as required,” the official said, declining to be named as he was not authorised to discuss the incident.

UN passes resolution calling for more “humanitarian pauses”

The 15 member United Nations Security Council (UNSC) passed a resolution on Friday urging Israel to offer more humanitarian pauses and supplies to Gaza as the IDF tightens its noose around Hamas’s terrorist leadership. The resolution calls for “extended humanitarian pauses” while Hamas still holds around 130 Israel hostages, including women and children. The Biden administration, which is already pressuring Israel to make similar concessions, abstained from voting.

The trucks carrying humanitarian aid of food and fuel to Gaza have repeatedly been looted by Hamas terrorists and diverted towards their terrorist campaign against the Israeli military. The terrorist group is hoarding massive amounts of food and essential supplies in order to sustain its leadership and terrorist fighters as they hide in the safety of underground tunnels and bunkers.

The Associated Press reported:

The U.N. Security Council adopted a watered-down resolution Friday calling for immediately speeding aid deliveries to hungry and desperate civilians in Gaza but without the original plea for an “urgent suspension of hostilities” between Israel and Hamas.

The long-delayed vote in the 15-member council was 13-0 with the United States and Russia abstaining. The U.S. abstention avoided a third American veto of a Gaza resolution following Hamas’ surprise Oct. 7 attacks inside Israel. Russia wanted the stronger language restored; the U.S. did not. (…)

Thus the resolution was stripped of its key provision with teeth — the call for “the urgent suspension of hostilities to allow safe and unhindered humanitarian access, and for urgent steps towards a sustainable cessation of hostilities.”

Instead, it calls “for urgent steps to immediately allow safe, unhindered and expanded humanitarian access, and also for creating the conditions for a sustainable cessation of hostilities.” The steps are not defined, but diplomats said it was the council’s first reference to stopping fighting.

According to the BBC Israel has killed three hundred million women and children.

True story.

I am loving these Jews with some backbone.

    Greetings, mailman.

    The Jews of Israel are made of far different stuff than the Jews I observe in the USA. I know nothing about those residing in the UK, but here, the days of Jewish men patrolling their neighborhoods two-by-two, and taking care of rock throwers and graffiti-sprayers, not to mention those committing assault and/or battery.

    The last I heard of such patrolling was in the Beverly-Fairfax district in Los Angeles and that was back in the 1970s.

    That should be enough to stop breeding of more terrorists, if only it was true.

    Hodge in reply to mailman. | December 24, 2023 at 10:04 am

    My favorite here is “76 members of one family killed in bombing”.

    Yeah, right.

It’s a start anyway

    JohnSmith100 in reply to Skip. | December 23, 2023 at 8:44 pm

    8000 is a start, there are millions who deserve death, not just in Gaza. Perhaps 4 to six million 🙂 Not all of them are in Palestine. 10-9-8—JR & Thad

8,000 is a good start, 10x more will be even better.

Make a deal to get anyone in Gaza who wants to leave a path to do so with an absolute date to be gone. Afterwards, decimate all elements of subversion, tunnels, factories, ports that have supplied hamas. Leave no mosque standing. Legitimate humans who fled may apply for immigration status to The Province of Gaza, Nation of Israel and then must be vetted to qualify as non-militant political refugees.

I don’t think that you could forbid islam but you certainly can get a signed statement repudiating every vile action and group who have fomented their hatred into death of others.. If they cannot sign an agreement that they becoming residents of The Province of Gaza, Nation of Israel, then they cannot be admitted on more than limited Visas which restrain their movements with The Province of Gaza, Nation of Israel.

Indeed, The Province of Gaza, Nation of Israel will provide all measures of government including education and prohibiting all forms of private education until those private operations are qualified by the The Province of Gaza, Nation of Israel.

And as long as I’m being Emperor of the World, for a few minutes, FORBID public prayer or call to prayer that, in any manner, imposes a duty on anyone other than the answering the call.

Why does Yahya Sinwar believe he deserves to live, after he led the people of gaza over the cliff to their destruction?

I hope they’re also working on an assassination campaign for the Hamas scumbags who are sitting in their US-taxpayer-funded penthouses in Qatar.

What would happen If Houthi-Iran militants attacked American or British or France or Chinese flagged commercial ships instead of those flagged Marshall Islands or Panama or Liberia?

If a “Israel-affiliated” American flagged ship were attacked by Houthi-Iran militants.

If a “Israel-affiliated” French flagged ship were attacked by Houthi-Iran militants

If a “Israel-affiliated” Liberian flagged ship were attacked by Houthi-Iran militants.

    Those questions are partially answered, but it’s worthy thought experiment.

    “The French have begun escorting their own cargo ships, including the containerships CMA CGM Pegasus, CMA CGM George Washington and APL Salalah, through the Red Sea.”

    At the heart of this unfolding drama is a critical question: which ships deserve protection?

    “While the French have shown a clear intent to prioritize their own shipping interests, the US approach has left its own American-flagged ships stranded in the region, that have been – some for more than a full week – waiting for escort.”

      Secretary Pete has bigger things to worry about. Like forcing everyone into expensive exploding electric vehicles.

    FWIW, not all of the targeted vessels have been flying flags of convenience. M/V Strinada, an oil/chemical tanker that was struck on or about Dec. 12th was flying the Norwegian flag. I think at least one other vessel that was targeted (but not struck) in the Red Sea was also flying a flag of a NATO member (Article V doesn’t necessarily obligate member states in these kinds of maritime attacks).

    ahad haamoratsim in reply to Tiki. | December 24, 2023 at 7:25 am

    “Flag of convenience“ countries tend to be those who provide scant protection for injured seamen. When a seaman on a foreign-flag vessel is injured in a U.S. port, the foreign carrier will try to make sure he doesn’t stay in the U.S. long enough to finish litigating a claim under the Jones Act.

Good — keep the hits coming. No mercy for Muslim supremacists, terrorists, Islamofascists, and, their non-Muslim, dhimmi allies.

Meanwhile, to absolutely no one’s surprise, the Administration of useless, dim-witted and feckless crime boss and dotard, Biden, has offered no substantive military response to either Iran and Qatar’s financial backing of attacks on U.S. citizens and troops (if attacking Israeli Jews isn’t sufficient motivation), and, to Iranian proxies attacks on international commercial shipping.

The root problem here is Iran, maybe there could be a collation of countries who are tired enough Iran to agree on pounding them into a dark age?

IDK, 8,000 sounds an awful lot like Hamas’s claims of 15,000 children, women, and old people being killed. 8,000 bodies is an awful lot of bodies and I haven’t seen any Vietnam-type body piles. I also haven’t read or seen any video of major battles with large numbers of troops fighting face-to-face. I believe the IDF before even thinking of believing Hamas but still 8,000?
