The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has implemented Operation ‘Guardian of the Walls’ amid retaliatory strikes against Hamas over the last 24 hours; Numerous terrorist sites have been destroyed, and continued actions are being taken to eliminate Hamas’ rocket-launching abilities.
I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem;
They shall never hold their peace day or night.
You who make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent,
And give Him no rest till He establishes
And till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
Airstrikes, Rockets, Iron Dome – each of these and more have remained constant on Tuesday in Israel amid the end-of-Ramadan chaos that has ensued, which now consists of Israeli Arabs partaking in riots throughout the country. As the tension continues to increase, the IDF has upped its military readiness, preparing for increased strikes on the terrorist regime responsible for the violence, Hamas, which is sponsored by Iran.
The IDF has implemented ‘Operation Guardian of the Walls’ as of Tuesday, specifically focusing on continuous airstrikes on the Gaza Strip. Even the Jewish state’s notorious F-35 fighter jets have partaken in the strikes. Several buildings have already been destroyed in Gaza in the last 24 hours, often housing known terrorists. Israel has taken measures to warn civilians to evacuate buildings before they’re heavily targeted.
Ultimately, according to a spokesman for the IDF, the goal of Operation Guardian of the Walls is to decimate Hamas’ rocket-launching abilities. There is no question of how significant a feat this would be, considering that Hamas has now fired several hundred rockets, resulting in at least two Israeli deaths. There are other injuries reported as well.
Video footage has been circling all over social media, revealing how active Israel’s Iron Dome has been, eliminating hundreds of rockets in the sky. One barrage of rockets targeting Tel Aviv on Tuesday evening consisted of approximately 130 rockets. In response, the IDF has already resumed airstrikes on terrorist entities in Gaza.
Ben Gurion Airport is officially closed, and the IDF has hinted that it expects several more days of conflict.
