The IDF is frustrated because their political leaders do not allow them to respond swiftly to rocket fire from Gaza.
While the IDF has yet to fully analyze recent events on the southern border, voices within the army can be heard addressing Israel’s “soft” response to the firing of rockets at three major Israeli cities.
Meanwhile, Israel’s aerial defense layout continues the “operational testing” phase of the Iron Dome system and is set to deploy two batteries in different areas in the south over the next few days. They will be placed in locations chosen in advance and set aside for the launchers.
Security sources said that the current deployment of the first battery – near Beersheba – has more of a symbolic significance than an operational one. Firstly, according to military sources, the battery will “hop” between various locations in the coming days and secondly – as long as the operational testing phase remains incomplete its effectiveness is lessened.
The Israeli leadership are scared that the International community will act on Israel, if the Israeli army targets the Hamas-leadership in Gaza.
Because the Israeli defense Force (IDF) is capable of ending he cruel and evil Hamas regime as we speak.
To put up Iron Dome will not end the rocket fire form Gaza.
It is like the allied forces under World War II setting up a rocket protection system around Paris, but not being willing to remove the problem in Berlin.
Israel must strike Gaza. Hamas must understand that one rocket fired in Israel, is one to many. I guess Mexico would have got the message, if a Mexican rocket had been fired into San Diego in California.
The World is siding with Islam, in their bid to destroy Israel. In the end, all nations shall face judgment in Zion for their foolishness.
When the Messiah returns, they will face judgment and eternal punishment.
I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.
