As Israeli tanks and infantry soldiers traverse the streets of Gaza and rockets from Hamas continue to rain down periodically on Israel, further evidence of the provocative educational material provided to Palestinian students from an early age has come to light.
In a concerning incident that unfolded on Monday, a 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist identified as Adam Abu Al-Hawa, hailing from the A-Tur neighborhood in East Jerusalem, carried out a knife attack near the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in the capital. The target of the attack was a police officer who sustained serious injuries during the encounter. The situation escalated swiftly as responding police officers resorted to using deadly force, ultimately leading to the killing of the terrorist. Security forces have since been diligently investigating the incident.
The IDF soldiers operating in the Gaza Strip displayed the Israeli flag on a building during their operation. This symbolic act was carried out by members of the 52nd Battalion from the 401st Armored Corps Brigade. One of the soldiers who captured the moment on video stated, "We will not forget, we will not forgive, and we will not stop until victory." This gesture resonated with many in Israel, and Israeli activist Yoseph Haddad commented on the viral video, saying, "The Israeli flag is flying in Gaza. They wanted to break us - we will break them."
The Israeli bombardments in Gaza, following the recent Hamas attack in the south on October 7, has resulted in the deaths of 50 captives who were abducted during the assault by Hamas, according to a member of the Hamas delegation visiting Russia, Abu Hamid. In an interview with the Russian newspaper Kommersant on Thursday evening, Abu Hamid shed light on the grim aftermath of the conflict.
The IDF has recently made significant changes to its protocols regarding opening fire in Judea and Samaria, specifically aimed at addressing the security challenges posed by terrorists attempting to breach the perimeter fence. This alteration in procedures reflects a more aggressive stance in dealing with potential threats.
