Israel Releases Footage of Gaza Sea Barrier

Israel Releases Footage of Gaza Sea Barrier

Two Hamas terrorists were killed on Tuesday when an Israel Defense Forces' tank returned fire after being attacked during a patrol.

"The IDF is prepared to target any aggression against Israel and holds Hamas responsible for everything happening in and emanating from the Gaza Strip", the IDF said in a statement.

"We can make it so that the enemy doesn't know peace", he said, with similar statements coming also from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

Hamas warned Israel that it would pay for the attack, without elaborating.

Gates says he helped Manafort hide payments
Gates pleaded guilty in February and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors under a deal that could lead to a reduced sentence. He told jurors how he disguised millions of dollars in foreign income as loans in order to lower Mr Manafort's tax bill.

The incident came after Egyptian-brokered talk to achieve cease-fire between Israel and Hamas reached an impasse. It then cuts to footage of a shell hitting the post and an explosion.

United Nations and Egyptian-led efforts are under way to mediate a long-term truce between Israel and Hamas that would end a four-month upsurge of violence along the Israel-Gaza border.

In Gaza, Hamas's military wing, the Qassam Brigades, issued a statement saying that it "mourns the two Mujahedeen" and that they had been "martyred in a Zionist bombardment".

One Israeli soldier has been shot dead by a Palestinian sniper during the same period, while incendiary devices attached to balloons and kites launched by Palestinians have sparked hundreds of fires in southern Israel, burning some 3,000 hectares (7,400 acres) of forest and farmland.

On August 5th, the day before the report was published, 17-year-old Ahmad Jihad Ahmad al-Aydi from Gaza succumbed to wounds he had sustained on the first day of Great March of Return protests on March 30th.
