The Israeli Air Force on Friday carried out raids on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip in retaliation for mortar fire directed at Israeli soldiers earlier in the day, on the fourth day of tit-for-tat exchanges of fire between Hamas and Israel around the coastal enclave.
Mortars were fired from the Gaza Strip at Israeli soldiers on Friday morning, causing no injuries in what the army said was the 12th incident in three days. The soldiers were operating near the southern edge of the coastal enclave, according to the Israel Defense Forces. The Israeli jets subsequently targeted a Hamas site in southern Gaza, according to the army.
“The repeated attacks against the IDF activities to locate and destroy cross-border tunnels will not be tolerated. Hamas’s diabolical plan to infiltrate into Israeli communities must be stopped. The IDF has the obligation and a duty to safeguard the people in southern Israel and the sovereignty of our borders, we will continue to do so,” said IDF spokesman Peter Lerner in a statement.
The IDF and Hamas are engaged in another round of warfare both above and below ground. The two sides are exchanging fire in the Gaza border area while the IDF continues its operations to locate the terror tunnels of the Hamas military wing. The IDF did the correct thing on Thursday by declaring areas near Gaza with suspected tunnels as “closed military zones”, amid concern that Hamas has already infiltrated into Israeli territory, even as training exercises. It is also important that the IDF is maintaining secrecy on the technological tools being used to locate the tunnels.
The exchanges of fire between the IDF and Hamas in the Gaza border area during the last few days have rattled the terrorist organization, making it fire mortar shells, rockets and light weapons at IDF forces in the area. The firing that intensifies each time that the troops approach a tunnel is helping the IDF locate the openings of the tunnels.
Since the heads of the Hamas military wing invested most of their budget and efforts in the digging, fortification and reinforcement of the tunnels that they planned to use to invade and attack Israel, the destruction of the underground network may have three main results:
1. In the coming days, the Hamas military wing may lash out in a desperate attempt to land a major blow against Israel. It is expected to be significantly weakened by the IDF operations in the near future but regain strength in the long term.
2. The military wing of Hamas will suffer a major defeat in the battle for popular support. The dire economic situation in Gaza that is partially due to the diversion of resources to the tunnels and other military means will weaken support among the public.
3. These developments will bring about a change in the balance of forces in Gaza that will benefit the political wing and weaken the military wing.
Finally, it has become clear what the world has been set to expect from the NATO summit to be held in Warsaw on July 8-9. Summing things up, it is clear that the Alliance is moving to the east. It plans to create a Black Sea «allied fleet». It should be done quickly – the standing force should be formed by July.
The 1936 Montreux Convention regulates the transit of naval warships. The document restricts outside navies’ access to the Turkish Straits and the Black Sea to 21 straight days per warship, and a maximum aggregate tonnage of 45,000 tons, with any one vessel no heavier than 15,000 tons.
International law is not strictly observed nowadays, so this problem could be solved. But what mission the new NATO standing force in the Black Sea is destined for?
A bit more than a couple of years ago Washington and Brussels had plans to make Sevastopol a NATO naval base. For many centuries the city has served as an outpost to protect the peninsula. After Crimea was reunited with Russia, Sevastopol became a fortified area with integrated command and control, intelligence and reconnaissance, anti-air, anti-surface ship and anti-submarine warfare capabilities.
Sevastopol’s reunification with Russia was a great frustration for NATO planners. Now they start to mull retaliatory measures. The «allied fleet» is an element of broader strategic plans. A few ships cannot tip the balance of forces in the Black Sea. Neither US, nor Romanian surface ships, nor the Ukrainian frigate Hetman Sahaydachniy escorted by rubber boats, or German conventional submarines pose any threat to Sevastopol. But it may change in the future. The Montreux convention can be changed (or violated), public opinion can be influenced and democratic parliaments can be convinced to approve allocations for creating a really strong maritime force in the Black Sea with Odessa as its home base. The port could be upgraded to host a large naval force.
With research compiled, it appears as though America better get ready for a set of detrimental earthquakes over the next few years affecting the San Andreas region, the New Madrid region, and the East Coast. Multiple scientists claim that all of these regions are well overdue for a big one. The real question, are they all connected? -Tell us what you think below!
America is set to be rocked by the San Andreas fault at any time in the near future, claims a leading earthquake scientist at the National Earthquake Conference in Long Beach. 1857, the year a monstrous 7.9 earthquake struck the region, and since that time, the San Andreas fault has been far too quiet.
Jordan, the scientist, believes the quake could be up to 8 in magnitude leading to diverse damage which is why California should be ready for the quake. Over the next few years, the San Andreas is not the only area expecting a large quake; the New Madrid region is also expecting a large quake. The East Coast is also to expect earthquakes over the next few years because the underside of the North American Plate is peeling off which is making it more susceptible to movement.
North America, is due to start shaking over the next few years, and only time will tell what exactly comes out of the above scientists predictions. However, if they are right, North America will geographically change shape.
The massive crack in a mountain in nearby Altoona, Pennsylvania is causing concern as we learn in this story and the 5th video below. Just a few weeks ago, the crack that ran up the mountain side was only about a foot wide; according to experts at the scene, as of last week it had grown up to 10′ wide and appeared to be at least 15′ deep.
Every moment that America moves onward w/o a significant earthquake causing devastating damage is another moment we move closer to that big one. As we learn in the first video below from Rick Wiles of TruTV, experts are warning the ‘US is ready to rumble’as ‘the springs on the San Andreas system have been wound very, very tight’. Has our planet become a ‘pressure cooker’ almost ready to pop? When it does, experts say the West coast won’t be the only thing that ‘goes’ in America.
On Sunday May 1st, a 3.5 magnitude earthquake struck near middle America in the New Madrid Seismic Zone. According to Michael Snyder, the quake was felt all the way over in Miller, Missouri, more than 267 miles away, and could be a ‘foreshock’ of something much bigger to come. Snyder proceeds to tell us that the New Madrid, which covers parts of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi is not only 6 times larger than the San Andreas Fault Zone but is, in fact, about 30 years overdue for a major event, and because of the nature of the Earth’s crust in that part of the country, a major earthquake would do significant damage all the way to the east coast.
Scientists Explain Why It Is Inevitable That America Will Be Hit By Absolutely Monstrous Earthquakes
Have you noticed that the crust of the Earth is starting to become a lot more unstable? Over the past couple of months, major earthquakes have shaken areas all over the planet and major volcanoes have been erupting with a frequency that is more than just a little bit startling. Here in the United States, the state of Oklahoma absolutely shattered their yearly record for quakes last year, we just saw a very disturbing earthquake right along the New Madrid fault just recently, and as you will see below one scientist is telling us that the San Andreas fault in southern California “looks like it’s locked, loaded and ready to go”.
The name of the scientist that issued that very ominous warning is Thomas Jordan, and he is the director of the Southern California Earthquake Center. The following quote from Jordan comes from a Los Angeles Times articlethat was published this week that is getting a huge amount of attention right now…
New Word Order At Stake: China, Britain And Clinton Warn: ‘Save The World From Donald Trump… Political Insurgents’
Hillary Clinton’s political team says that only the former Secretary of State can save the world from Donald Trump.
“I don’t know how else to say it: The whole world is counting on us to win this thing,” wrote Deputy Communications Director Christina Reynolds in an email to supporters. “And we owe it to them to step up.”
Following Trump’s de facto nomination this week, none other than the former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, a card carrying member of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations, has weighed in, closely echoing Clinton’s warnings suggesting that the whole world has a Trump problem:
There are insurgent movements to the right and the left that are very populist, very charged with emotion. They’ve come out of people’s anger—they feel that the system isn’t responding to their needs…
… Frankly it’s happening all over Europe.
… The people feel the system is not responding to their needs and the easiest thing in politics where there is a lot of anger is to ride the anger.
Like a good globalist, Blair couldn’t have chosen a better word to describe the political outcry taking place in Europe, The United States and elsewhere. To the globalist establishment this is an insurgency.
But perhaps most telling of all as to how dangerous Trump is to the current and emerging world order is the response from the Chinese government’s media mouthpiece the Global Times, which claims that the Republican nominee’s trade and geo-political policies could lead to serious problems. As reported by Zero Hedge:
It’s clear that world leaders, including Hillary Clinton, understand there is a massive change brewing in the global populace.
From East to West the established order is under threat.
But as should be clear from their speeches, statements and actions, the establishment’s intent is to maintain the status quo. And that means they must stop Trump, Sanders and anti-establishment candidates running for elections in other parts of the world at any cost.
Former Clinton insider Larry Nichols has worked with, and now against, the Clintons. Nichols has some of the top political and financial connections on the planet. Nichols hopes the public is finally realizing the enormous power struggle going on. Nichols explains, “There is no two-party system in the United States of America. Let’s get that straight. There is no two-party system, there is one. Part of it is a red team and part of it is a blue team. You think you have a choice, but as you know you only have a choice between the two they give you to vote for, but here comes Trump. Trump doesn’t need their money . . . he will bust up the system, and he will not only bust up the system for the Republican Party, but he will bust up the system (for both parties). So, there are many establishment Republicans that have said they would rather vote for Hillary than Trump. . . . They must maintain status quo of the system for these power elite people to stay where they want to be.”
Nichols goes on to say, “We are at the beginning of a velvet or silent coup. It’s been going on for years. There’s been a slow subtle takeover of our form of government, starting years and years ago, but it is coming to an end. That’s why there is this power play now. It’s more aggressive than you have seen before. If we don’t stop Hillary, it’s over. Is Trump the answer to all of our problems? I don’t know. Here’s what I do know about Donald Trump. Donald Trump is not in the system. How do I know that? As hard as they are working to keep him out is a pretty good recommendation for me. He’s not one of them. He might be a good president. When you mention Hillary or the establishment, there is no ‘might.’ With them, we would get what we have been getting but only worse. There is not a ‘might’ there.”
Nichols, who is currently undergoing treatments for lung cancer, also says, “I believe President Obama doesn’t really want to leave. Now, how could he stay? It only takes a crisis. If a national crisis is declared . . . FEMA comes in. Most people don’t even know about the FEMA provisional plan. In case a meteor hits America and we go into a national crisis, FEMA has already got a plan in place ready to go where they will set up a provisional government. So, if the banks were to start collapsing, guess what Obama would do?
He’d go to Congress and get them to vote and boom, in comes the provisional FEMA government, which makes the president . . . king.”
Say goodbye to your neighborhood: Obama ‘fair housing’ rule enforces racial, religious, income ‘desegregration’
Guess we have all paid attention to the earthquake situation over the last few years. The entire ring of fire has been shaking like at no time since I've been alive. All, that is, except the continental USA. It just seems to skip us and starts up again about Alaska.
Every other quake transfers some shift and the pressure distributes around the globe. In every location except here, that distribution releases in the form of another quake...except here.
That analogy to a rubber band has me shaking when I think about it too much. Just common sense says the forces being stored up must be horrendous and it will let loose. It has to.
Afraid it is going to be anything but pretty. Hope everybody has their supplies stored up.
Yea when they finally get it its going to be huge
I totally believe the only reason God hasn't shaken us up is because there are so many Christians here. There are some serious praying people out on the west coast. Or maybe, he is saving it up for judgement time. I don't know.
I'm definitely thinking about that Tsunami.... I keep thinking about how much movement is going to happen from just the sheer force of impact.
I'm pretty ready to go home. By earthquake, tsunami, or heavenly rail coach, not my decision. giggle but I would prefer the quick and painless exit.
I believe our race is almost run.
So ready for that sweet tea at the Tree of Life picnic!
Woop woop, chin up, I can almost hear the shofar!
