On June 12, 2014, Eyal Yifrach (19), Gilad Shaar (16) and Naftali Fraenkel (16) were kidnapped and murdered by Hamas terrorists in Judea and Samaria. After weeks of relentlessly searching, the bodies of the three teenagers were found.
Overnight, as IDF special forces attempted to arrest Amer Abu Aysha and Marwan Kawasme, the two kidnappers and murderers, they were killed in an exchange of fire.
IDF Chief of Staff, Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz said, “We promised the families that we would find the murderers. This morning, we did just that.”

While Hamas does all it can to hurt and terrorize Israelis, we do all we can to minimize harm to Gaza’s civilian population. That’s why the IDF is thoroughly looking into incidents in which civilians in Gaza were harmed. We remain committed to the standards of international law.
Hamas puts Gazan civilians in the line of fire, but the IDF does everything it can to ensure their safety. As our soldiers entered battle in Gaza, they carried this reminder of their obligation to uphold human rights.

Today is the 50th day of Operation Protective Edge. Our soldiers continue to stand strong, prepared to defend Israel from every threat. Terror will not stop us.
Last week, the UN published several maps showing the aftermath of Operation Protective Edge. The maps mark damaged buildings with red dots scattered throughout Gaza. But these maps tells only half the story: Hamas used many of these buildings – including houses, hospitals and schools – as sites to launch rockets and carry out other attacks.
In many cases, the IDF struck buildings in order to stop Hamas’ violence. This means that the red dots on the UN’s maps represent more than destruction. They show the many cases in which terrorists attacked Israel from heavily populated areas in Gaza.
Hamas is a radical jihadist group like ISIS, and they live next-door. This is the simple truth. REBLOG.
