Israel se está defendiendo de los ataques del Hamas. Ya era hora. Y B”H Bibi no es Olmert, ni Tzipi Livni. Esta vez si siguen con el terrorismo va a pasar lo que debería haber pasado hace rato: la eliminación del Hamas de la Franja de Gaza.
Por el momento la situación se está manejando perfectamente, sín poner en riesgo vidas de soldados en el terreno y limitando los ataques a bombardeos sobre objetivos específicos (incluso mejor que “Plomo Fundido”). Aún así se aprobó el llamado de 30000 reservistas:
But Operation Pillar of Cloud’s first part showed a favorable balance: Palestinian missile fire was as erratic as ever, although intense; Iron Dome filtered out the rockets aimed at Israel’s major towns; Israeli casualties were relatively low though painful; and the enemy in Gaza was decapitated – for now.
But most of all, the Palestinians and their allies in Tehran and Hizballah suddenly discovered that the old IDF had come roaring back.
In the only former major Israeli operation in Gaza, Cast Lead (late 2008, early 2009), the IDF was slow, unwieldy and unfocused. Its counter-terror offensive was foreshortened by heavy diplomatic pressure before achieving anything, owing to the government’s lack of resolve. In the 2006 Lebanon War, the army was stalled before developing an effective tactical offensive.
The IDF of 2012 is in a different class, recalling its rapid-fire performance in the Six-Day War then fought on multiple fronts.
In just a few hours late Wednesday, Nov. 14, Pillar of Cloud achieved more than Cast Lead managed in weeks: It was driven by clockwork, integrated intelligence by the Shin Bet and Military Intelligence, precise, surgical air force strikes and a command-and-control with fast reflexes which recalled Israel’s military skills of 45 years ago.
The rapid destruction of scores of Fajr-3 and Fajr-5 rockets, whose respective ranges of 45 and 75 kilometers placed Israel’s heartland in line of Palestinian strikes, compared with the destruction of the Egyptian air force on the ground in the early hours of the 1967 war, rather than the bombardment of Hizballah’s long-range missiles in 2006 which failed to draw its sting…
A su vez en este momento se están transportando camiones, tanques y tropas a la frontera con Gaza.
Lo más probable es que la Operación Pilar de Defensa se convierta en una operación para terminar de una vez con el Hamas, y lo que eso significa: la presencia Iraní a escasos km de Israel.
Am Israel Jai
Z”L por los caídos..
