Ambush on IDF patrol near Kissufim crossing executed by pro-Iranian militant group whose extremism outstrips even Hamas. Army stresses that even if Hamas didn't carry out the attack, it authorized it

The attack on an IDF force patrolling the Gaza border earlier on Tuesday was carried out by a cell belonging to the Worldwide Jihad. An IDF tracker serving with the Gaza Division's southern brigade was killed and three additional soldiers were seriously wounded. The name of the tracker, a Bedouin from Rahat, is being withheld at the request of his family.

It seems that the Gaza assault yesterday by Israel was Iran's fault according to the IDF but they were careful not to leave Hamas off the hook.

The explosion in Israeli lines was apparently conducted by a Palestinian group loyal to Iran. Is it possible that there are groups of Palestinian who wait to take orders from Iran instead of being preoccupied by dodging Israeli shells. How they managed to overcome the blockade without digging tunnels into Egypt is beyond me.

Thanks to the IDF, we now know this group is even 'worse' than Hamas. Because of Hamas', Israel has justified the killing of 1300 Palestinians and wounding 5000; so the question is, what is it going to do to them now that it turns out a worse group has emerged. Perhaps the Iranian connections, conveniently made by the Israelis, means that Iranian civilians will have to be punished.

I think the timing of the attack was all to convenient to the pullout and Obama's entrance into office. Israel can easily use this as a precursor to invading Iran, while pressuring Obama to come to their "defense."

Why do I smell bull#? They'll probably pressure us to attack Iran and thus starting a third war for us

Soon, Hamas will also be responsible for global warming. The next excuse for killing palestinian civilians...
"we are an oppressed people, persecuted victims to everything. Now Hamas are trying to kill us by breathing in our oxygen"

Well considering Iran supports Hamas and sends them money. its not far fetched to think it was an order from iran...

Regardless, if it was an order from Iran or not, Hamas didn't carry out the attacks but is responsible...? How do you lay blame on Hamas who didn't do anything, then bomb civilians again, then blame Hamas again?

I'm sick of the excuses to kill more civilians. Typical of Israel.
