Israel Declares War: Hundreds Dead in Surprise Terrorist Attack


TEL AVIV, ISRAEL – The Israel Security Cabinet officially declared war on Hamas after a surprise attack Saturday killing hundreds of innocent civilians in the Holy Land.  The declaration is the first time Israel has declared war since 1973. 

Fox News is reporting Israeli soldiers battled Hamas fighters in the streets of southern Israel a day after Iranian-backed Hamas terrorists invaded the area and launched rockets from the Gaza Strip, killing at least 600 Israelis and wounding at least 2,000 others.

Israeli forces launched retaliatory strikes against Hamas terrorists in Gaza on Sunday, while also trading fire with Lebanon’s Iran-backed Hezbollah militant group in the north.

Israeli media said at least 600 people were killed and 2,000 wounded in Saturday’s attack. Hamas fighters took an unknown number of civilians and soldiers captive into Gaza, and a line of Israelis with missing relatives snaked outside a police station in central Israel to supply investigators with DNA samples and other means that could help identify their family members.

Israel struck 426 targets in Gaza, its military said, flattening residential buildings in giant explosions.

Just skimmed the article, but deeply shaken by this attack on the settlers of Long Island by these Shinnecock raiders. These targeted attacks on our banking sector must not be tolerated.

It is difficult to tell if this was an attempt at humor or not.  If so, it was an abysmal failure.  There is nothing funny about this horror.
