Israeli Tanks Roll Deep Into Gaza As The Entire World Braces For More Escalation


by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

There isn’t going to be peace in the Middle East any time soon.  As you will see below, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has unequivocally ruled out a ceasefire.  IDF forces will continue with their mission until victory is achieved.  So now we will keep a very close eye on all of the other interested parties to see what they will choose to do.  If all of the allies of Hamas stand aside and do nothing, the IDF will slowly but surely wipe Hamas out.  That is a best case scenario.  In a worst case scenario, multiple parties start to enter the conflict and an absolutely apocalyptic war engulfs the entire Middle East.


On Monday, Israeli tanks rolled even deeper into Gaza

Israeli troops and tanks attacked Gaza’s main northern city from both sides on Monday, three days after they began a major ground offensive in the Palestinian enclave that has stirred more international appeals for civilians to be protected.

Israel’s military said it had struck more than 600 militant targets over the past few days as it expanded ground operations in the Gaza Strip, where Palestinian civilians are in dire need of fuel, food and clean water as the war enters its fourth week.

Hamas is not strong enough to stop what is happening.

Perhaps they should have considered that before committing nightmarish atrocities on October 7th.

Now they are completely and utterly doomed unless they get help.

At this point, the IDF has already taken control of one of the main roads that connects the northern part of Gaza with the southern part…

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) says it has killed dozens of Hamas militants, among them commanders, as it pushes deeper into Gaza, with tanks being seen Monday on the outskirts of Gaza City, blocking a key road linking the northern and southern halves of the Strip.

Hamas has also announced it is engaged in “heavy fighting… with the invading occupation force”, after the IDF confirmed more Israeli troops have been surged into the Strip. It appears the warring sides are in some locales engaged in building-to-building and door-to-door fighting in the dense urban zone.

Apparently the goal is to completely “encircle Gaza City”, and if that happens it will be game over for Hamas…

Israel is signaling its intent to encircle Gaza City with tank and ground units – a significant challenge given its size of 18 square miles with a pre-conflict population of over 650,000 people. In total some 1.1 million people live in the northern half of the Strip.

Recent reports have estimated that hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have defied Israel’s order to flee south. By Saturday the IDF had utilized open spaces like the beach to quickly allow tank units to plunge two miles deep into the Strip.

Once they are fully encircled, there will be no way out for Hamas fighters, and IDF troops will steadily tighten their grip.

Allies of Hamas all over the world are screaming for a ceasefire, but Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is making it abundantly clear that there will not be one

“I want to make clear Israel’s position regarding the ceasefire. Just as the United States would not agree to a ceasefire after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, or after the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Israel will not agree to a cessation of hostilities with Hamas after the horrific attacks of October 7,” he said.

Just imagine how Americans would feel if our babies were butchered, our women were raped and our grandmothers were taken as hostages.

We would not be willing to accept a ceasefire either.

During his remarks, Netanyahu ominously stated that this is “a time for war”, and I don’t see him changing his mind until Hamas is totally defeated…

“The Bible says that there is a time for peace and a time for war. This is a time for war.”

If Hamas officials were smart, they would be trying to gain favor with the western powers.

But instead, it is being reported that they are actually blocking British and American citizens from leaving Gaza

At least 200 British citizens are thought to be registered with the UK authorities inside the coastal enclave, and some 600 Americans, as well as many other nationalities.

Jake Sullivan, the White House’s chief security adviser, said: “The Egyptians are prepared to let Americans and other foreign nationals out of Gaza. The Israelis have no issue with that. But Hamas is preventing their departure and making a series of demands.”

Are they really that stupid?

Of course you have got to be quite stupid to become a terrorist in the first place.

And that is especially true for those that choose to join Hamas.
