This is what a #Hamas ceasefire looks like 👇🏼
#BREAKING: In response to over 36 rockets launched from #Hamas-controlled #Gaza, #Israel responded with air strikes. This press release describes what happened. 👇🏼
#BREAKING: At this point some 70 projectiles have been fired from #Hamas-controlled #Gaza today.
#BREAKING: @IDFSpokesperson releases footage of #IDF strike in #Gaza in response to dozens of rocket attacks from #Hamas territory. #Israel targeted 12 sites including a tunnel-parts factory, a maritime offensive terror tunnel shaft, & other Hamas terror locations. Watch here 👇
.@i24NEWS_EN reports that one of the rockets fired from #Hamas-controlled #Gaza struck & damaged an industrial plant in #Sderot, #Israel.

(Depending on the extent of damage, I’d expect a more comprehensive air strike response from #Israel.)
This was going to be a Marriott Hotel on the beach in #Gaza but construction was halted years ago. In 2012 #Hamas used the building as shelter, believing the #Israel wouldn't target a civilian hotel’s construction site. In 2013 Hamas began using site to construct concrete parts.
#Hamas operatives now reside in the site & they've dug launch sites next to the structure, where they continued to construct parts for terror tunnels rather than reconstruct #Gaza for the people. #Israel wisely put an end to that & targeted it today.
Here is the #Hamas central logistical military facility #Israel targeted today in response to dozens of rockets fired at civilian areas. 👇
#Hamas uses civilians as shields as it conducts terror ops from #Gaza. Here's a rocket manufacturing facility located next to a 5-story residential bldg in a packed neighborhood. If civilians die when #Israel strikes, Hamas considers it a feature, not a bug in their plan.
Just as the #Hamas-sponsored violent riots at the #Gaza fence are designed to court an Israeli response that kills civilians, so too are the locations of Hamas production facilities. #Israel targeted that rocket manufacturing facility today (see previous tweet).
If some terrorist group launched ~100 rockets in 12 hrs at any location in the US, we would completely flatten the place without a second thought. The American people would demand it. Citizens in any civilized country would expect their gov't to eradicate the problem immediately.
Much of what happens in #Gaza, including terrorist escalations, are a function of local issues. Still, we mustn't discount #Iran's sponsorship of #Hamas. Days ago #Israel killed in #Syria a significant scientist involved in long-range missile production. It may be a factor.
#BREAKING: #Israel strikes over 100 terror targets in #Gaza after #Hamas & its terrorist allies launch dozens upon dozens of rockets into #Israel all day & night.

(I believe this is the most comprehensive Israeli action in Gaza since the 2014 war)
#BREAKING: #Israel is considering a full-scale military campaign in #Gaza in response to over 150 rockets fired from #Hamas-controlled #Gaza.
In a briefing today I learned that #Hamas has HUNDREDS of kilometers of underground infrastructure in #Gaza. The entire Strip in only 41 km long. Imagine if the terrorist group constructed infrastructure for the Palestinians it governed instead? #Israel
What it means is that a lack of reconstruction aid isn’t the issue in #Gaza; it’s how it is used and abused by #Hamas.
This is the building used by #Hamas Interior Security Services locates in a residential area in Northern #Gaza. #Israel targeted the site today. Press release below 👇🏼
This is what happened to the #Hamas Internal Security Forces’ HQ pictured above 👇🏼 #Israel
Naturally, journalists embrace the #Hamas propaganda campaign in #Gaza, thereby boosting the morale of the very terrorists who endanger the lives of civilians as part of their strategy:
Predictably, a mixture of #Hamas supporters & agitators gathered again today for yet another violent riot along the #Gaza security fence. No sane & sovereign country would allow the unobstructed entry of terrorists led by a group that fired 200 rocket launches a day ago. #Israel

Interestingly, #Hamas is right about #Fatah’s intentions.…
#Hamas is not authorized to sign any agreement with #Israel because it has no representative status,” a senior Fatah official in Ramallah told The Jerusalem Post. “The Palestinian Authority is the only legitimate party representing the Palestinians.”
What if we just got #Fatah and #Hamas their own Attaché badges like Edward Tavner on the show, Patriot? We could engrave, “Legitimate Palestinian Representative,” on it instead. 💡

Here’s how Abbas will get Palestinians killed: He is again claiming something HE KNOWS is utter bull$h*t, this time about Islam’s holiest site in #Jerusalem. His brainwashed population will riot. #Israel will defend itself. Abbas, like #Hamas, has to go.…
Even more cynical is that while Abbas will foment riots in #Jerusalem based on his own lies, he will take US funding to rebuild #Gaza - because from America’s point of view, it’s better to have a corrupt thug ruling Palestinians than it is #Hamas.…
Even better, Abbas’ PLO discusses severing ties with #Israel as it mulls accepting a US financial handout to strengthen it in #Gaza, while lying to the Palestinian people in the West Bank to spark a riot in #Jerusalem. I think we’ve had enough.…

Because THIS guy draws another false equivalence between the torrent of lies he spun selling the #IranDeal and Trump’s meetings that resulted in nothing similar, I’m compelled to call him out in vivid detail as I did in 2015 with this thread for the record 👇🏼
You can follow along with the article I wrote in @TimesofIsrael in 2015, "Framework Iran’ Sequel Leaves Audiences and Critics Confused" in which I demonstrate that at nearly every turn, #Iran's version of the deal was accurate and the White House lied.…
We should recall that in 2015, there was a sizable disagreement between the garbage Ben Rhode's and his #EchoChamber were selling, what Europe was saying, and what #Iran said happened.

Exactly. The issue for #Israel is #Iran in #Syria, not the distance from its borders. Iran has precision guided munitions and ballistic missiles that can strike Israel from anywhere in Syria.…
This would be akin to the Soviet Union offering to move it's nuclear weapons from Cuba to Jamaica. It's a non-starter.
To understand #Israel's logic regarding #Iran's military position in #Syria, read the report I co-authored with @JSchanzer and @AcrossTheBay of @FDD, "Controlled Chaos"…

New evergreen Tweet? "Netanyahu asks Putin to remove #Iran's forces from #Syria."

@AcrossTheBay @JSchanzer & I describe the stakes & provide policy options in @FDD's "Controlled Chaos: The Escalation of Conflict between #Israel & Iran in War-Torn Syria"…
The need for our new report and recommendations therein is best summed up two maps indicating today's developments in #Syria:
It's a few hours after Putin & Netanyahu met in #Moscow to discuss the removal of #Iran from #Syria. #Israel responded to the UAV that crossed into its airspace from Syria with strikes at 3 military posts near its border.
