According to Yedioth Ahronoth, Palestinian sources inside of Gaza said that after Israel allowed a limited flow of goods and materials into Gaza, a black market for mortar paste emerged that allowed Hamas to renew construction of concrete slabs used to line the inside of tunnels. Hamas has also started to rebuild its rocket arsenal from “dual-use” materials such as iron, which is being smuggled through the Egyptian border or by sea.

Yedioth Ahronoth also reported that Hamas is formulating a new strategy of infiltrating Israel for the next round of fighting due to the success of the Iron Dome missile defense system in intercepting Hamas rockets.

Meanwhile, two months after international donors pledged $5.4 billion to help rebuild Gaza, only 2 percent of the money has been transferred. At the conference in Cairo in October, Qatar promised $1 billion, Saudi Arabia $500 million, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates $200 million each, and the United States and European Union a combined $780 million in various forms of assistance.

But only $100 million has been delivered to Gaza so far, with mainly the Arab countries being slow to transfer the funds, Reuters reported.

“The Arab countries haven’t paid anything until now,” Mufeed al-Hasayna, the Palestinian Authority’s housing minister, said earlier this month.

    Now you might wonder why God allows these conflicts to playout in this fashion. I do! God has Angels with scrolls marking those who oppose Israel and those who befriend Israel. If need be he will take out those who do not fall in line scripturally and play according to the rules of his engagement. Those he will take out before the battle Armeggedon all others will be delt with as depicted in Revelation 14:9-19. God also said has expanded the umbrella of his protection for Israel to something more than covering your back to a very broad spectrum of well defined protection provided by his angels that seemed to require the precondition of your nation taking its stand against Gaza. God seems to expand his protection of you as you pull together as one nation United in purpose becoming of one mind and one body, taking a stand to preserve your civilization. Now things will go well for Russia and China if they heed the above mentioned warnings. All those who befriend Israel in these perilous times will receive favor from God. Most of the western nations will turn their back on Israel ,for some reason?….they will be given a second chance to change their attitudes during the seven year tribulation. God is a patient God and gives them every chance to repent before they are thrown in the pit.

    Zachariah 12 and psalm 83 are very clear….they state that a select amount of the worlds leaders will be struck with a form of antisemitic madness. Daniel refers to them as the ten horns lead by a deceptive and boisterous little horn. They all become of one mind and one purpose, to gather and attack Israel. The kings of the north and the east, the triad of Russia, China, and NK confront this consortium as described by Daniel and they enrage the beast as he is tightening his stranglehold on Israel. Israel keep your guard up the intensity of these conflicts will increase not decrease. God is with you fighting on all sides.
