An Israeli Defense Forces official stated that Gaza-based terror group Hamas is working vigorously to prepare for its next confrontation with Israel, local news website 0404 reported.

The group is continuing to test-fire rockets as part of training exercises, and just this morning a test-launch was carried out into the sea, the official said. He added that the IDF is monitoring Hamas’ activities and vigilantly observing their training in the Gaza Strip, and are well-aware of what is going on behind enemy lines.

The senior IDF official said that, “Hamas continues to practice and prepare for its next confrontation with Israel. This doesn’t come as a surprise to us at all, since we are monitoring every action Hamas takes – firing rockets at the sea from the Gaza Strip, flying drones in the Strip, infantry training, military exercises, and more.”

He added that, “there is no doubt that Hamas is preparing. They are trying to do as much as possible. We know that Hamas is working to dig new tunnels and to upgrade its weapons. Just recently, we intercepted a shipment [of weapons] at sea, which was intended for the terror organization.”

The official also said, “we are well aware of every operation and training exercise that Hamas undertakes, the arenas in which they are practicing, and every undertaking whose goal is to prepare the terrorist organization to fight against Israel.” However, he concluded by claiming that Hamas knows better than to engage the IDF again, since it will suffer a greater defeat than that which was dealt to it during last summer’s Operation Protective Edge.

  • How can any leader ask Israel to take part in any type of peace treaty or give gaza away to become an autonomous state ?
    There will never be peace if hamas continues in a ‘peace’ time to replenish their weapons and train terrorists, and dig more tunnels into Israel.
    Israel knows hamas is engaging in this behavior, so no matter what hamas says, or say they are doing to promote a peace between them…they are getting ready for the next fight…. this is what is on the mind of hamas, to fight Israel and not to have any peaceful resolution with the Israelis…. it is enormously transparent hamas does not now, and never will, want a true peace with Israel.

    Israel can defeat Hamas in the next war in five minutes if she would have the guts to nuke Gaza.

    Then tell Hezbollah that Lebanon is next.

      Gaza’s a little close to Israel for nukes. Darn that fallout and radiation and stuff.

    Destroy them first. Worry about world opinion later because the world doesn’t care about you and they absolutely hate strong Jews.

    Get rid of the 60,000 African illegals before they become a knife in the heart of Israel.

    I’m glad that I don’t live with them as well and the government has shown how weak they are to our enemies. Would China, Russia, Iran, Saudia Arabia allow them to live openly in their countries?

  • When a poison strikes the human body, the only way to address it, is to remove it and destroy it completely, no traces left.

    This is what Hamas is. It must be destroyed and wiped off the face of the earth. There is no other option. This applies also to ISIS and any other terrorist organizations even those who clothes themselves in false legitimacy, the are a rattle snake that must be crushed and buried, never to rise again.

    Let us get down to the nitty-gritty. The United States has many satellites circulating around the earth. On tv, like CNN, you see the ISIS morons training in the desert. These satellites carry cameras that read the color of a human eye. We MUST know where these ISIS training camps are, SO why in Gods name have we not bombed those bastards off the face of the earth!? Who or what is holding us back? It appears to be a no brainer. I would do what Israel does prior to a bombing. Leaflets go out by the thousands dropped by aircraft. It states that there will be total destruction within 24 hours. It’s time to get out of “Dodge”. Last man standing gets his ass whipped for good! Seems like a smart move, but who am I. I’ll tell you who I am, A guy that stands with Israel and the IDF. We have waited long enough. IT’s time to kick their asses! Shalom
