That is a very interesting update, and a related link from the story says:
Arms Smuggling Fajr missile launched from Gaza Fajr missile launched from Gaza
Report in Lebanon: Long-range missiles smuggled into Gaza
According to the Hezbollah-affiliated newspaper, a "considerable" amount of long-range missiles have been transferred to Gaza over the past 24
Al-Akhbar also said Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards have declared a state of alert. The report said the units that have been mainly
include those that are in charge of arms smuggling from Syria, Lebanon, Iran and Sudan to Gaza. The weapons pass from Iranian and Syrian ports to
Sudan, from which there they are transported to Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, and from there to Gaza.
It appears that the Gazans have not been abandoned by their fellow Muslims/Arabs as other people have mentioned, and if Egypt takes a similar stance
then it appears the Gazans may finally be able to defend themselves. A ground invasion by Israel would be a suicide mission if Egypt decides to open
up it's border unless Israel is willing to turn this into an all out regional conflict and block the Egyptian border crossing into Gaza.
Wow this is depressing to wake up to.
Gaza will be in ruins once this is all said and done and maybe the whole ME, Israel will even be decimated if this happens, a very sad state of
Also from the link:
It was further reported that Grad rockets, as well as Kornet anti-tank missiles used by Palestinian terrorists to attack armored IDF vehicles,
were transferred to Gaza by the regime in Damascus.
They try and make it sound as if Gaza does not possess the right to protect itself from the invasion.
Throwing the terrorist word doesn't work so well when both sides are using terrorism. I for one hope Israel reconsiders their plans, once they step
foott in Gaza it will get very bloody for both sides.
