The Israel Defense Forces resumed its military offensive in the Gaza Strip on Friday after a week-long truce as the Hamas terror group broke the ceasefire, firing rockets into Israel and failing to provide a list of hostages it intended to release by 7 a.m.

In response, the IDF said it was renewing combat seven days after fighting ceased, during which time 105 civilians were released from Hamas captivity in Gaza, including 81 Israelis, 23 Thai nationals, and 1 Filipino, in exchange for 210 Palestinian prisoners, all of them women or minors. Israel also allowed an influx of humanitarian aid into the Strip.

Still held hostage by Gaza terror groups when the truce collapsed were 137 people — 115 men, 20 women and two children — government spokesperson Eylon Levy said. Ten of the hostages are 75 and older. The vast majority of the hostages, 126, are Israeli. Eleven are foreign nationals, including eight from Thailand.

The Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement that Hamas “violated the framework, did not meet its obligation to release all hostage women, and fired rockets at Israel.”

“Amid the return to combat, we stress the government of Israel is committed to achieving the goals of the war — releasing our hostages, eliminating Hamas, and ensuring that Gaza can never again threaten the people of Israel.”

Hugh’s show today opened with two segments reviewing the decision of Israel to resume the war against Hamas and he explains how Thursday’s disastrous visit to Israel by Secretary Blinken may have given the Hamas terrorist a completely false sense of security. Blinken’s presser in Israel May have been the worst exercise of public diplomacy by an American since Dean Acheson’s infamous Press Club speech of January 12, 1950.

The Right Scoop

(Snip)

Ariel Oseran, who works for i24 News, explained how the ceasefire collapsed:

How the Israel-Hamas ceasefire collapsed:

~ During the night it still seemed like an agreement could be reached to extend the truce by another day by the 7:00 a.m. deadline.

~ Hamas doesn’t deliver a list of hostages expected to be released today.

~ 5:48, rockets fired toward southern border communities (intercepted by iron dome).

~ 6:53, another rocket barrage.

~ 7:03, the IDF announces Hamas violated the operational pause, and that its forces have “resumed combat against Hamas.”

~ 7:07, Palestinian reports of firefights in northern Gaza and Israeli airstrikes across the strip.

~ Since then a series of launches from Gaza and Israeli strikes.

~ Mediation efforts to revive the ceasefire continue.

Israel has bombed locations in Khan Yunis and Rafah. Below is video i24 News obtained from the IDF spokesman of the renewed war operations:

Before they began the fight, the IDF dropped leaflets in the neighborhoods of Khan Yunis telling civilians to flee:

IDF Finds Dozens Of Missiles Hidden Under UN Equipment In Gaza

The IDF on Saturday uncovered dozens of Hamas missiles hidden underneath UNRWA equipment, it announced.

 

Dozens of missiles with varying capacities, as well as some 30 Grad rockets, were found and confiscated by forces from the 261st Brigade.

 

The IDF struck over 400 terror targets across the Gaza Strip since the resumption of the war in Gaza, following a seven-day humanitarian truce with terrorist group Hamas.

 

Some 50 of the 400 targets attacked were targeted as part of an air raid on Khan Yunis, in the southern Gaza Strip, the IDF said. Israeli naval forces used precision-guided missiles to strike Hamas terror infrastructure, as well as naval equipment, located near the Khan Yunis harbor.:snip:

Bill and Joe are back with an update on Israel's now-resumed war in Gaza, and they're joined by FDD Senior Fellow and Hezbollah expert David Daoud. They discuss the latest activity from Hezbollah at Israel's border with Lebanon, U.S. funding to the Lebanese Armed Forces (a policy that Bill calls: "giving crack to a crackhead"), the pieces in play on the Islamic Republic of Iran's regional chessboard, and more.

They get scared from hearing the sound of the alarms. There is no way that a rocket can escape the iron dome in Tel Aviv. Makes you think about the horror that Palestinians get through with the 24/7 naked bombardements."

You Totally Completely Miss The Point! But then you are  (probably) a Progressive, so that  goes without saying."

After the ceasefire ended the Israelis claimed that those seven days allowed Hamas fighters to move to the south and reconstitute in the city of Khan Yunis, and -as a result, along with focusing on Jebel Lia to the north, the Israeli Air Force pounded a number of targets in Khan Yunis, including apartment buildings that Palestinians said were occupied by innocents in spite of the IDF’s claim of solid intel that indicated they were being used as a Hamas command center.

Concerned third party governments say that the IDF is moving the goal posts, as it were, and that the southern strikes refute Israel’s claim that they are prosecuting their campaign with an eye on protecting civilians to the greatest degree possible, while the Israelis say the change is necessary to accomplish their mission of eliminating Hamas, and they continue to blame Hamas for using non-combatants as human shields.
