Day 14: Operation Protective Edge Against Hamas
Following ten days of Hamas attacks against Israel and after repeated rejections of offers to deescalate the situation, the IDF has started a new phase of Operation Protective Edge. A large IDF force entered the Gaza Strip. Their mission is to target Hamas’ tunnels that cross under the Israel-Gaza border and enable terrorists to infiltrate Israel and carry out attacks. The IDF intends to impair Hamas’ capability to attack Israel. For live updates, click here.
Hamas uses the residential neighborhood of Shuja’iya as a fortress for its weapons, rockets, tunnels and command centers. Hamas exploits the neighborhood’s residents as human shields for its terrorist activity. Since the beginning of the ground phase of the operation, IDF soldiers have found 10 openings to terror tunnels in Shuja’iya.
