Israeli General: The confrontation with Hamas is unavoidable

[ 09/04/2011 – 09:44 AM ]

NAZARETH, (PIC)– Former artillery General Oded Tira said Israel’s military confrontation with Hamas Movement is inevitable as long as it refuses to recognize Israel’s right to exist.

In an article published by strategic studies center, Tira advised the Israeli army to necessarily carry out its activities covertly and away from the media and train its troops how to sharpen their senses and be patient in the war against Hamas.

The former General called for eliminating Hamas because it wants to remove Israel from the map.

There is no halfway solution, either Hamas recognizes Israel, and this is impossible, or Israel eliminates Hamas, he emphasized.

In another context, Palestinian eyewitnesses said the antimissile system called the iron dome set up by the Israeli army to intercept the resistance’s homemade rockets failed on Friday evening to stop a number of projectiles fired from Gaza in retaliation to Israeli attacks.

Citizens affirmed that six Israeli missiles were fired in the air to destroy a Palestinian rocket launched from Gaza, but they failed to hit the target and the rocket continued its way to Ashkelon city.

Israeli sources also talked on Thursday that the iron dome system had intercepted only one rocket out of 20 others fired from Gaza at the western Negev region and Ashkelon city.

For its part, Salahuddin Brigades, the armed wing of the popular resistance committees, said the unilateral ceasefire in Gaza cannot be accepted as long as Israel is persistent in escalating its military attacks against the Palestinian people there.

Spokesman for the Brigades Abu Mujahed stressed that the Palestinian resistance cannot abide by the calm while Israel does not respect it and keeps shedding the Palestinian blood everywhere in Gaza.




“We ask, how many more dead corpses of Palestinian children and women does the international community need to see in order to act?”
