Hamas says indirect ceasefire talks with Israel halted, protests to escalate


The Times of Israel: The clashes, which Israel says are being orchestrated by Gaza’s Hamas rulers, have regularly included rioting, attacks on Israeli troops and attempts to infiltrate and sabotage the border fence.

On Sunday, nine fires broke out in southern Israel as a result of the arson balloons. On Friday and Saturday, thirteen fires were reported in the areas adjacent to the Gaza Strip. In response to each attack, IDF aircraft fired at cells of Gazans as they launched the devices towards Israel.

The weekend also saw thousands of Gazans demonstrate at the border. On Friday, one Palestinian was reported killed and at least 312 were wounded as some 10,000 Palestinians protested on the Gaza Strip border, with some throwing explosive devices, rocks, and burning tires, as soldiers responded with tear gas and occasional live fire. more …

Opinion: Threats are coming from three sides:

From the North: 5 days ago – The leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah terror group boastedthat the group now has “highly accurate … missiles” and that, should Israel impose a war on Lebanon, “it will face a fate and a reality it never expected on any day.”

From the East: 5 days ago – Israel announced that they were upgrading and reinforcing its nuclear sites amid Iranian threats to attack them, the director general of the country’s Atomic Energy

From the South: 2 days ago Gaza’s Hamas rulers said on that their indirect negotiations to reach a long-term ceasefire agreement with Israel have halted and promised to step up the violent protests along the border.

Both Hamas (Edom) and Hezbollah (inhabitants of Tyre) are Iranian proxies. Both are major players in the Psalm 83:1-8 war, and the increased rhetoric may indicate an attack could be imminent.
