    4) In the Lieutenant Colonel’s opinion, and based on his service as the head of an entire branch of the IDF which specialized in the studies of the capabilities of enemy forces and their culture, Egypt is seriously considering the possibility of open conflict with Israel.

    5) Eli states that the Armed Forces of Egypt have started, over the last year, has dug over 60 bunkers, strategic reserves, ammunition dumps, fuel depots, and the likes, in Sinai and the west bank of the Suez Canal, the disposition of these installations and the closeness they have towards the Israeli border would insure a swift deployment of field armies, and for their resupply - Lt.Col Eli also states that Egypt has practically violated the remaining articles of Camp David by building the bunkers, fortresses, tunnels, and so on, and that the diplomatic wish-wash reports were simply made not to panic the Israeli population.

    Very interesting! For years I've predicted an eventual breakdown of Egypt-Israel peace and the process may have finally started. Ahmedfire, do you have any comments on this?

    You don't get a much better example of poetic justice than this report from the Daily Mail this morning. Probably a skilled group of sappers with many demolitions behind them.

    The demolition squad was large with wounded as well. The IAF said that 33 were wounded in yesterday's operations and have been transferred to regime hospitals, among them 11 are reported to be in critical condition but assume this was spread over all their ops in the day.


    21 Israeli soldiers are killed in Gaza when RPG is fired at nearby tank, setting off demolition explosives they were preparing and causing two buildings to collapse on them

    The soldiers were preparing explosives to demolish two buildings in central Gaza on Monday. The incident is the largest single loss of life for the military since the war began.

    BREAKING: Hezbollah attacked Meron Air base again:

    Hezbollah announced targeting the Meron Air Surveillance Base for the 2nd time. This action is a response to recent assassinations in Lebanon and Syria, as well as the repeated attacks on civilians and homes of Qarana. Hezbollah used a significant number of appropriate missiles/rockets, achieving direct hits and causing injuries.

    Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Khamenei:

    “The leaders of Islamic countries declare that a ceasefire must take place in Gaza, yet they articulate aspirations beyond their control & influence. Instead, why not focus on actions that are well within their control? Specifically, they must sever the vital lifelines of the Zionist regime. They can stop their support, their political and economical support to the Zionist regime.”

    🛑 The IOF admits damage was inflicted to the Meron Air Control center due to Hezbollah’s rocket attack. The IOF added that the base has a backup system.

    This likely indicates that the base, in contrary to their claims, underwent some critical damages which prompted them to active backup systems.

    UPDATE: Al-Qassam (Hamas) issued an update on yesterday’s BIG event:

    At exactly 4PM yesterday, the Qassam Brigades executed a complex operation east of Al-Maghazi camp. They targeted a building housing a Zionist engineering force, with an anti-personnel shell, causing the ammunition and engineering equipment it possessed to explode.

    Simultaneously, the fighters destroyed a Merkava tank, that was providing cover for the force, with a Yassin-105 rocket.

    They also detonated a minefield blowing up another Zionist force in the same location, resulting in casualties, including deaths and injuries. The fighters withdrew safely to their bases.

    This operation resulted in 24 confirmed IOF kills with many more injured & missing.

    Muhammad Shehada
    @muhammadshehad2
    Sources: This incident is a clear admission the IDF is wiping out entire areas deliberately in what it openly calls a "purification" process to create an expanded buffer zone inside Gaza!

    Entire towns like Khuzaa were wiped out...

    The incident from the POV of israel:

    According to the IOF’s investigation of yesterday's blast in central Gaza, Hamas forces fired an RPG rocket at a building.

    Two buildings, some 600 meters from the border, had been rigged up with around 20 mines for detonation. The RPG fire from a few dozen meters away likely set off the mines, causing the structures to collapse and killing 19 soldiers inside and near them.

    An IOF tank guarding the operation spotted the Hamas forces and was about to return fire, but before managing to do so, the gunmen fired another RPG, hitting the tank and killing 2 israeli troops.

    The Hamas members withdrew safely back to their bases, after the attack.

    MUST WATCH: Al-Quds Brigades (PIJ) published a video showing the targeting of a military gathering in Jabal Al-Rayes, east of Jabalia, with guided missiles (probably ATGMs).

    — English translations of the arabic texts in the video:

    “Monitoring the movements of the enemy stationed on Jabal al-Rayes”

    “Based on field information about soldiers getting out of the detected vehicles, the gathering was targeted with a guided missile.”

    “Scenes from targeting the gathering with a guided missile”

    “Pictures from where the soldiers were targeted by the guided missile.”

    “Military belongings of the soldiers targeted in the operation”

    “Traces of blood on the belongings of soldiers targeted in the operation”

    🇮🇶 Major escalation from Iraqi Resistance leader Abu Alaa al-Walai:

    “At a time when the criminal American occupation is again blatantly targeting our security forces and our sacred crowd in a number of areas of Iraq, we urge the Mujahideen of the Islamic Resistance in Iraq to begin the 2nd phase of their blessed operations, which includes enforcing the blockade on Zionist maritime navigation in the Mediterranean Sea, and removing the entity’s ports until the Zionist usurper is out of service, and this will continue until the unjust siege on Gaza is lifted, and the horrific Zionist massacres against its people are stopped.”

    Very interesting! For years I've predicted an eventual breakdown of Egypt-Israel peace and the process may have finally started. Ahmedfire, do you have any comments on this?

    Egypt violated the treaty for it's national security , as long as the peace is there so the treaty is fine , Egypt thinks like that .

    But Israel and US think tanks still spreading the propaganda of increasing the Egyptian power in Sinai .

    2023 Israel–Hamas war #3 - Page 37 Captur17


    If they don't trust Egypt while calling it a friend , so why Egypt should trust them ?

    Tensions have raised recently , Egypt has blocked the plan of moving the Palestinians outside Gaza which blocked the core target of the Israeli operation ,  IDF destroyed the buildings and killed thousands of people because they are only angry with a blocked plan , at the end the people of Gaza will produce more resistance as long as they are there .

    Tensions have raised recently , the last tone of the Head of Egypt's State Information Service was high .

    Egypt is capable of defending its interests and sovereignty over its land and borders and will not leave it in the hands of a group of extremist Israeli leaders who seek to drag the region into a state of conflict and instability," Rashwan said, calling it a "red line" that Israel must not cross.

    It was the second such red line drawn by Egypt, after it previously declared a "categorical rejection of [Israel] forcibly or voluntarily displacing our Palestinian brothers" from Gaza to Egypt's northeast Sinai peninsula, which borders the small coastal territory.
