IDF tells 100,000 Gaza civilians to move back from Israeli border – sign of impending ground incursion

Thursday afternoon, July 10, the IDF advised 100,000 Palestinian civilians to leave their homes in the northern Gaza villages of Beit Lahiya, Beit Hanoun, Greater Ibsen and Smaller Ibsen and head west to the coast or south to remove themselves from danger. This order, issued shortly after a special Israeli cabinet meeting, suggested that an Israel military incursion is impending. During the day, Hamas kept up its barrage. By firing 100 rockets, the Islamists demonstrated that their rocket capability had not been impaired by three days of massive Israeli air strikes.

DEBKAfile reported earlier Thursday: Early Thursday, July 10, two more rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip at Tel Aviv. Iron Dome intercepted one. By 9 am, 10 more landed in Negev sites. Between Wednesday midnight and Thursday morning, the Israeli Air Force and Navy had carried out 108 strikes in the Gaza Strip – 322 in 24 hours. Targeted were a weapons store, 5 arms manufacturing plants, 5 military compounds, 58 tunnels, 2 surveillance posts, 217 buried rocket launching pads, one command and control base and 46 homes of Hamas and Jihad Islami commanders.

In this time span, the Palestinians fired 234 rockets.

On Wednesday July 9, the second day of Operation Protective Edge, Prime Minister Netanyahu announced that he had ordered its expansion “until the [Palestinian] shooting stopped.”

    Thousands of Iraq refugees fleeing, thousands of Syrian refugees fleeing, thousands of Libyan refugees fleeing, all recent headlines.
    I think Jordan and Egypt needs some Palestinian refugees.
    Just like Palestinians are not welcome in Kuwait today, for a reason, their neighbors do not want them in their borders either, for a reason.

    Way past time for the IDF to boot these pukes a new butt hole

    It’ll be interesting to see what Jordan does. Jordan and Israel have very cordial(albeit very much under cover) relations. And Jordan has its own problems with the “palestinians” living around the city of Ma’an. ‘Bout every 3-4 years they get spanked seriously by the Jordanian military.
