ראש הממשלה בנימין נתניהו שוחח היום עם נשיא רוסיה ולדימיר פוטין על המלחמה בחמאס והמצב באזור.

ראש הממשלה הביע את מורת רוחו  מהעמדות שהביעו נציגי רוסיה באו״ם ובפורומים אחרים נגד ישראל.

ראש הממשלה נתניהו הביע ביקורת תקיפה על שיתוף הפעולה המסוכן בין רוסיה לאיראן.

ראש הממשלה הדגיש שכל מדינה שהייתה סופגת מתקפת טרור נפשעת כפי שחוותה ישראל הייתה נוהגת בעוצמה לא פחותה מזו שבה פועלת ישראל.

ראש הממשלה הביע הערכה על המאמץ הרוסי לשחרור אזרח ישראלי בעל אזרחות רוסית ואמר שישראל תפעל בכל האמצעים, המדיניים והצבאיים כאחד, לשחרור כל חטופינו.

כמו כן, ביקש ראש הממשלה נתניהו שרוסיה תפעיל לחץ על הצלב האדום לטובת ביקורים ותרופות לחטופינו.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke today with Russian President Vladimir Putin about the war with Hamas and the situation in the region.

The Prime Minister expressed his displeasure with the positions expressed by Russian representatives at the UN and other forums against Israel.

Prime Minister Netanyahu strongly criticized the dangerous cooperation between Russia and Iran.

The Prime Minister emphasized that any country that would suffer a criminal terrorist attack like Israel experienced would act with no less force than the one in which Israel operates.

The Prime Minister expressed appreciation for the Russian effort to release an Israeli citizen with Russian citizenship and said that Israel will use all means, both political and military, to release all of our abductees.

Also, Prime Minister Netanyahu requested that Russia put pressure on the Red Cross in favor of visits and medicine for our abductees.

They will find some other places that needs it so they can skim off the top. This is the problem with organizations that may start out with their heart in the right place (usually all volunteers), but invariably wind up with so many administrators that they basically exist to perpetuate their bloated payroll. (Unfortunately this can happen with some of our own organizations too). When orgs are run by volunteers, that usually keeps it going lishmah. The problem is, the more successful these organizations are at helping people, the bigger they get, and volunteer work isn't enough to sustain them.

watch this!!

https://yidcom.com/post/583_.html

In the course of the Nahal Brigade's combat operations in Jabaliya, the soldiers of Battalion 931 received intelligence regarding the presence of Hamas militants and weaponry in nearby structures. Responding to this information, the troops launched a targeted attack on these buildings.

The militants had set up an ambush in the same area and were prepared to strike our forces as they passed through the central axis of movement. The troops approached through one of the enemy's alleys, surprising them and opening fire on the militants at the location. The militants fired back and threw grenades, leading to a firefight that continued until the neutralization of the attackers.

In additional encounters that occurred in the following days in the same area, more militants were eliminated by the soldiers of Battalion 931 in face-to-face confrontations, uncovering weapons and terrorist infrastructure. Furthermore, several militants were neutralized through tank fire and the targeted use of unmanned aerial vehicles by the Air Force's combat team.

These actions illustrate the ongoing challenges and the proactive measures taken by the Nahal Brigade to confront and neutralize threats posed by militants and terrorist infrastructure in the region.

Four days ago, Yitzhak Buzaglo received the tragic news that his son, Amit, a 19-year-old soldier, was killed in combat. Yesterday, the grieving father spoke on Channel 11, expressing clear disdain for media outlets focusing on societal divisions. He urged the public to turn off their screens and not watch those causing discord.

In a radio interview with Galei Tzahal today, Yitzhak Buzaglo defiantly stated, "We, the people, will defeat you, the media; we will shut down the television." The interviewer abruptly cut him off in response, claiming, "I can't handle this."

It's worth noting that Buzaglo expressed similar sentiments in a previous program, leading to an invitation to Galei Tzahal. However, the presenter chose to dismiss him from the broadcast disrespectfully. The interviewer's appalling behavior raises questions about whether this was intentional, perhaps to show that they won't let him freely discuss his pain.



Zvi Sukkot, a member of the religious Zionist party, also faced the interviewer's disgraceful conduct when approached by the grieving father. Outraged by the humiliation, Sukkot wrote to Galei Tzahal's public relations, highlighting the inappropriate removal of Buzaglo from the broadcast.

This severe misconduct, especially towards a father who recently lost his son, is unacceptable on any media platform, and it's even more egregious on the radio station of the Israel Defense Forces. It raises concerns about the station's role and values. Urgent clarification and appropriate action are needed.

Additionally, Minister for the Advancement of Women, May Golan, commented on the disgraceful event, expressing disbelief at the silencing of Yitzhak Buzaglo, a father mourning his hero son, Amit Buzaglo, who sacrificed his life in the Gaza operation.

The incident reflects the intensity of the Israeli public's reaction to media behavior during times of war and calls for a swift resolution.

Not sure how you came up with the name Buzaglo. The name is Bontzel. And he was 22, not 19.

JP claims IDF reported 14,500 terrorists killed in northern Gaza, this is much higher than anything I’ve seen elsewhere and doesn’t count southern Gaza at all. Anyone have an official source?

I don't see that in the article. It says:

The IDF said that about 7,000 terrorists had been killed in the two northernmost governorates of Gaza. The Hamas-governed Health Ministry in Gaza says about 18,000 Palestinians have been killed.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I heard last week that Kibbutz Yad Mordechai was celebrating 80 years since its founding.
It's def a bittersweet occasion since the kibbutz is currently under evacuation, and the residents are spread all over.

It reminded me that @moe8555 lives there, and was there on Shmini Atzeres. With all the more prominent (unfortunately) attacks on other yishuvim, I was not aware until now what had happened there, how the cheder konanut defended the yishuv...
We daven that he and all those displaced should be able to return home soon!
If you need anything from us (especially those in EY) let us know.

I also noticed that @LongTimeLurker has not been active in quite a long time and it is possible that he has been called up to active duty.
We daven for him, among all the other soldiers should be safe and return home beshalom gamur.

well seems like they made a bunch of errors not to mention the 'dark pools'..


Unusual market moves: Did Hamas make bank on the October 7th attack?
A new study noticed a sharp spike in short sales of Israeli stocks in the days before the massacre.

A study by Prof. Robert Jackson, Jr. of New York University and Prof. Joshua Mitts of Columbia University revealed that many Israeli ETFs and stocks were sold relatively unusually mere days before the October 7th surprise attack.
