Israel has been systematically bombing the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas’ leaders and buildings in response to their Islamic member’s invasion of the “Holy Land,” murdering over 1,400 people on October 7th, 2023.
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Tweeted a phone call between one of the Hamas butchers and his family, following the massacre.
“Look how many I killed with my own hands! Your son killed Jews!” Listen to a phone call of a Hamas terrorist calling home, bragging about how many people he massacred. The whole world needs to hear this.

In what had reportedly frustrated the Israeli military leadership, the expected retaliation ground assault into Gaza had been slow-rolled by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu following his meetings with United States President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
Finally though, as the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution calling for a ceasefire — and defeated an amendment that would have condemned Hamas, Israel launched expanded incursions into Gaza on Friday evening, sending tanks and special forces into the terrorist-controlled territory to take out specific targets and prepare the way for a possible full-scale ground invasion.
Hamas will feel Israel’s ‘wrath’, a top political adviser to Netanyahu warned as Israeli warplanes unleashed airstrikes of ‘unprecedented’ intensity across all parts of the Gaza strip.
Israel Defense Forces (IDF) released video footage of airstrikes on underground command centers and tunnels.

The IDF has not confirmed the targets or scope of Friday night’s operations yet, but has said, according to the Times of Israel, that it has not yet begun a full ground invasion.
The Daily Mail Reported:
The bombing, which observers described as much more ferocious and louder than previous days, coincided with electricity and communications blackouts in much of the besieged enclave.
According to one report the Israelis even unleashed ‘bunker buster’ concussion missiles to try and destroy the extensive Hamas tunnel network under Gaza.
IDF spokesperson Daniel Hagari telling reporters at a press conference today: ‘In recent hours we have increased the attacks in Gaza.
‘The air force widely attacks underground targets and terrorist infrastructure, very significantly.
‘In continuation of the offensive activity we carried out in the last few days, the ground forces are expanding the ground activity this evening.’
Speaking to MSNBC, Israeli political adviser Mark Regev claimed Hamas will pay for what he said were its crimes against humanity.
He told Fox News in a separate interview tonight that the Gaza Strip would look ‘very different’ after ‘this is over.’
Mr. Regev told Fox News tonight: ‘We are beefing up the pressure on Hamas. We’re increasing the pressure that they’re under. Our military operations are underway.
‘They will continue to be on the receiving end of our military blows until we have dismantled their military machine and dissolve their political structure in Gaza. When this is over, Gaza will be very different.’
