Since Saturday morning (Dec. 27), the IDF has struck approximately 210 sites utilized by the HAMAS in the Gaza Strip. These attacks, collectively known as Operation Cast Lead, are a part of operations aimed at destroying the HAMAS' infrastructure that has enabled continued terrorist attacks from the Gaza Strip on Little Satan's south 40.
In addition to the sites attacked on Saturday, 30 HAMAS sites were attacked by IDF forces last night. The targeted sites include command centers, training camps, rocket manufacturing and weapon storage facilities, and other sites crucial to HAMAS' command, control and communications - like Gaza's HAMAS University.
Target lists hit including a cool description (available here) makes the case that Little Satan has been casing the Strip for just such an eventuality.
Little Satan also attacked over 40 tunnels in the Rafah area which are a part of the tunnel network used by the HAMAS for smuggling weaponry as part of their terror activity in the Gaza Strip. The tunnels were also used for the transfer of terror operatives from Egypt to the Gaza Strip and back.Little Satan's Deputy PM (she also holds the Foreign Ministry portfolio) and candidate for Prime Minister in Little Satan's 'lections coming up in Feb, Tzipi Livni danced around a quiz about trekking into Gaza proper or about utterly destroying HAMAS.
"Our goal is not to reoccupy Gaza Strip. We left Gaza Strip. We took off for the south. We dismantled all the settlements. But since Gaza Strip has been controlled by the extremists and since Gaza Strip has been controlled by Hamas and since Hamas is using Gaza Strip in order to target us, we need to give an answer to this."
"Right now Hamas didn't accept, is not willing to accept the requirements of the international community, is not willing to accept the right of Israel to exist. It violates any kind of understandings and is using terror against Israeli civilians. So it cannot be legitimate and acceptable right now."
