The terror group Hamas benefits from using its own people as human shields. When the IDF refrains from firing into densely populated areas, such as neighborhoods or suburbs, the terror organization becomes less vulnerable by default. Most of Hamas’ military infrastructure is purposely placed in the middle of Gaza City and scattered throughout crowded refugee camps, further putting civilians in the direct line of fire.

In this video, uploaded online by Hamas only two days ago, you can see rockets being fired from urban living areas in the Gaza Strip. These are the same areas Hamas operatives convert to terror sites and weapon caches.Hiding

A missile fired from an American warship in the Mediterranean hit the car in which Muhammad Jamal A-Namnam, 27, was driving in the heart of Gaza City Wednesday, Nov. 3 and killed him, debkafile’s exclusive counter-terror sources report. Namnam was an operational commander of the Army of Islam, Al-Qaeda’s Palestinian cell in the Gaza Strip. He was on a mission on behalf of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula – AQAP to plan, organize and execute the next wave of terrorist attacks on US targets after last week’s air package bomb plot.

In an interview with US news network CNN, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon has said that there is no chance that Israel will apologise for its role in the raid on the Gaza bound Mavi Marmara two weeks ago. He said, the organisers of the flotilla are the ones who should apologise.” He added: “They they need to investigate themselves and those who support them. With that he directed the finger of blame away from Israel and towards Ankarra. He emphasized that relations between Turkey and Israel were important but laid blame directly at the Turkish government for its involvement in the ships plan to violently break the Israeli blockade on the Gaza Strip. He also rejected claims for an international investigation into the incident saying that Israel was fully able to investigate itself.

The parody video “We Con the World,” which mocked the international media coverage of the Gaza-bound “aid” flotilla that was stopped by Israeli naval commandos, has been taken down from the website YouTube, where it received over 3 million views since it went up on June 3. YouTube posted a comment citing copyright infringement concerns from Warren Chappel Music Inc., which owns the rights to the 1985 charity fundraiser song “We Are the World.” The video, made by the satirical Web site Latma TV depicts a mock crew of the flotilla, some wearing keffiyehs and speaking in Arab accents, performing a song to the tune of “We Are the World.” The parody, which received international — and often critical — acknowledgement, is available on other Web sites, while a Hebrew subtitled version is still available on YouTube.

They report that the Israeli Navy together with the US Fifth Fleet have for some weeks been charting Persian Gulf waters and Iranian shorelines in preparation for attacks by Israeli naval and special operations forces.

IDF intelligence and special forces officers, they also say, have been marking out routes for their air and ground forces to drive into Iran and hit its nuclear installations. blog it
