Confident Hamas planned victory rallies for its leaders inside Israel

IDF OFFICER: 'THIS MOB WOULD HAVE INFILTRATED COMMUNITIES'

Israel TV: Confident Hamas planned victory rallies for its leaders inside Israel

Hadashot news claims Gaza protesters given specific instructions by terror group, urged to bring 'knife or handgun' to rallies; IDF commanders recount violence hitherto unseen.


Though it has sought to portray weeks of violent demonstrations along the Gaza Strip’s border with Israel as popular protests, Hamas has been heavily involved in planning the clashes and provided instructions to participants on desired behavior, Israel’s Hadashot TV news reported Friday.

The terror group disseminated detailed directives via social media ahead of Monday’s violent clashes at the border, the TV report said. These directives went so far as to inform protesters in which Israeli community each terrorist leader would be delivering victory speeches after the protests had achieved their stated goal of breaching the border.


“Ismail Haniyeh will speak in Nahal Oz, Khalil al-Hayya in Kfar Aza and (Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader) Nafed Azzam in Be’eri,” Hadashot quoted the instructions as saying. “After the victory speeches, celebrations will begin throughout Palestine.”

Protesters were told that tractors would seek to bring down the fence, and were urged to arm themselves with “a knife or a handgun” for use after the border was breached, the report said. “Seek to drive (Israeli) snipers from their positions,” the instructions added.

The directives were reportedly accompanied by detailed maps, and included the Israeli communities to which Palestinians were encouraged to rush.

Colonel Kobi Heller, the commander of the IDF’s Southern (Gaza) Brigade, told the TV station that this information corresponded with the military’s own material on what has been playing out at the border.

“In the end all the people who come up to the fence definitely do it under Hamas’s direction,” he said.

He noted, however, that Hamas leadership was absent during Monday’s violence. “They didn’t come to the fence on Monday. They were afraid.”

Heller said: “You had thousands of riled up protesters. Someone riled them up. Someone got them to get up as one and charge at the soldiers along the fence.

“By the way,” he said, “if they hadn’t charged like that, our soldiers wouldn’t have done anything.”

Since March 30, tens of thousands of Palestinians have taken part in weekly “March of Return” protests, which Israel says are orchestrated by the Hamas terror group and used as cover for attempted terror attacks and breaches of the border fence.

The violent demonstrations were meant to end on May 15, but Hamas leaders have said they want them to continue.

The deaths of 62 Palestinians during Monday’s violent protests were met with international outrage and calls for an independent investigation of events. The UN’s Human Rights Council on Friday ordered a probe, and a resolution prepared by Kuwait for the UN Security Council urges the deployment of an international force to protect Gazans. Hamas has subsequently admitted that 50 of the dead were members of the terror group. Three others were Islamic Jihad members.

Lt. Cl. Akhsan Daksa, commander of the IDF’s 7th Armored Brigade, told Hadashot snipers were not given carte blanche to fire as they chose. “Not at all,” he said. “There is a very clear method of authorization.”

Daksa called the Palestinian protests on Monday “a violent affair such as I’ve not encountered.”

He added: “I fought in the Second Lebanon War, in Operation Protective Edge (the 2014 war in Gaza). There was violence here like in a battlefield.”

Daksa, who speaks Arabic, said he communicated with some of the protesters over the fence, sometimes “from five meters away.” They told him “We’re on our way to Nahal Oz, to the other communities. Today’s prayers will be held there.”

He said he told demonstrators to head back from the fence. “This won’t help, this isn’t the way,” he recounted telling them.

However, he said, when protesters arrived in droves at the fence and hurled grenades or bombs “there’s no other measure that can work” besides sniper fire. “At that point, there is no other measure.”

Heller added, “If we hadn’t been (guarding) the fence this week, ensuring that Hamas, Islamic Jihad and others met a brick wall of combat soldiers when they came to the fence, this mob would have infiltrated [Israeli residential] communities.”

The IDF did a great job protecting these communities. Israel is 1000% in the right and has absolutely nothing for which it needs to apologize or second guess. Keep it up and do not relent.

Why does the IDF have to continue with such BS mumbling a load of stumbeling appologies to the lying left wing liberal and other assorted trash.

They the IDF did a FANTASTIC job defending Israel. Be PROUD that you stood tall in a situation which you did not create and for one which you did not ask.

While the looney left tries to bring down Bibi for case 2000002 a b c & now d and the Trumpster for Making America Great Again.

God bless them both and the IDF. SPEAK SOFTLY AND CARRY A BIG STICK.

Cut of the head of the snake and the snake dies!

Better to have lost propoganda wars, unjustly I might add, than for Israelis to have lost their lives.

The Western public doesn't have a clue what really went on, thanks to the BBC and other lying media outlets.

Yes Jonathan. You are so right. The BBC and the Guardian newspaper, particularly, are dreadful in their misrepresentation of the facts.

It's time for the IDF to stop playing around with tear gas and pea shooters... tanks and flamethrowers need to be deployed to those animals.

Jews have a long, experienced history with raging mob pogroms. This time, Israel was able to stop those rampaging crowds from breaching their border fence. No Jews died, thank you IDF!
NO MORE POGROMS!

Because they have a narrative and this doesn't fit. So you won't see it presented anywhere.
