Hamas military wing says newly-developed tactic was behind ‘Iron Dome’ failure

Abu Obeida, a spokesman for the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, said in a social media post on Monday that rocket-launching tactic overwhelmed the so-called Iron Dome missile system, leading to the deaths and injuries of numerous Israelis in two days. “The Qassam Brigades, thanks to God, succeeded in overcoming the so-called Iron Dome by adopting the tactic of firing dozens of missiles in one single burst, he said,” he said. “The high intensity of fire and the great destructive ability of the missiles that were introduced by the Qassam [Brigades]… succeeded in causing great losses and destruction to the enemy,” he said. Israeli aerial assaults on Gaza promoted the most intense fighting between the regime and Gaza-based Palestinian resistance fighters since Tel Aviv’s bloody war on the blockaded enclave in 2014. In retaliation, the Palestinian resistance fighters fired around 700 rockets from Gaza into the occupied territories, killing four Israeli settlers and injuring at least 80 others over the weekend. In the course of Israel’s seven-week-long war in 2014, five Israelis had died and 67 others had been wounded. Israeli media said that the "Iron Dome" intercepted only 240 of the projectiles, adding that some 35 rockets and mortar shells struck populated areas over the course of Saturday and Sunday. In an interview with The Jerusalem Post, former head of Israeli military intelligence’s research department, Yaakov Amidror, revealed that the "Iron Dome" missile system failed to intercept all the missiles launched from Gaza due to a number of reasons. According to him, one of the key problems was that some of the rockets were launched from a very close range, giving the “Iron Dome” next to no time to react and intercept them. He added that in general the rockets launched from the Gaza Strip are not unique and are “within the capabilities of the Iron Dome.” Lack of time was not the only reason for the missile system’s failure to intercept some of the projectiles. According to the Israeli military expert, the peculiarities of the design of the “Iron Dome” make it ignore the missiles aimed at areas deemed empty or uninhabited by the system. ‘Israel changed rules of engagement in Gaza’ This is while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that the Tel Aviv regime had changed rules of engagement in Gaza in the past few days. “We have changed the rules of the game, and Hamas understands this very well. With that, it is clear that this is not the end of the campaign, and I therefore gave instructions to prepare for what will come next, and gave directives to leave armored and artillery forces around the Gaza Strip,” he said. The fresh Israeli aggression killed 27 Palestinians and wounded dozens of others in the attacks. Two pregnant Palestinian women and two infants were among the dead. The two-day Israeli onslaught also demolished or damaged hundreds of Palestinian homes in Gaza. The conflict came to a halt on Monday following a ceasefire between the two sides. Tensions erupted on Friday after the killing of four Palestinians, two in an Israeli air raid on Gaza and two during the regime’s live fire at anti-occupation protests. Meanwhile, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhr said that although the recent flare-up in Gaza had come to an end, the wider conflict would continue. “The resistance managed to deter” the Israeli military, said Sami Abu Zuhri, according to Israeli Kan public broadcaster. “Our message is that this round is over, but the conflict will not end until we regain our rights,” he said. Israelis living close to the Gaza border expressed dismay at the ceasefire. In Ein Hashlosha, a kibbutz about a mile and a half from Gaza, Meirav Kohan, 46, said she was shocked and disappointed at the truce. “This is a war of attrition” she said, adding the Tel Aviv regime “is not looking for a long-term solution to bring us peace. There’s no policy. We’re just pawns in a game.” Israel says its warplanes targeted some 350 sites in the Gaza Strip. Gaza has been under Israeli land, air and sea blockade for over a decade.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save Them

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save Them

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: https://www.gofundme.com/rationalbeliever Paypal: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=EN79XRUF35QWL **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
