{Edited to avoid getting flagged by filters}

Some of the truly insane things I’ve heard from friends and family who are fighting in the depths of Gaza.

I was told that a friend had been to three Hamas bases. I asked him what he means by a base? Like a building they call a base?

Nope. He said Hamas has full army bases equipped with everything a normal base has including obstacle courses, shooting ranges, and more. They’re all over Gaza.

I was also told that they could not walk three feet without seeing a tunnel opening. Gaza is absolutely covered with tunnel holes. I was told that Gaza is literally duplicated under ground.

I was told that every single house, EVERY one, had weapons hidden somewhere. They didn’t enter a single house without some weapons somewhere.

I was told that none of the Hamas terrorists wear uniforms. They are all dressed in civilian clothes so when they’re killed, Hamas can claim they were innocent.

I was told that we have no idea to what extent they use human shields. Hamas terrorists open fire on IDF soldiers with one hand, while holding an elderly lady with the other. This is their most popular tactic.

I was told that they have not met a single innocent civilian there and every single person, even those who pretend they’re innocent in the beginning, are somehow connected to Hamas. Everyone there supports Hamas.

I was told that there are days in which the IDF eliminates hundreds of terrorists. 

I was told that it is widely known that if (when) Israel enters Rafah, it’s all over for Hamas. Everyone knows that hundreds, maybe thousands of them are hiding in Rafah hoping the world manages to stop the IDF from going in there. They’re banking on that.

I was told they keep finding books, from children books to text books, describing the history of the Jews, and general information about Jews explaining why they should be killed.

I was told that when an IDF soldier is killed, everyone there celebrates. Somehow they all know about it within minutes and firecrackers are their main method of celebration. Firecrackers and firing guns into the air. And of course, candies. They love giving out candies when a Jew is murdered.

I was told that Hamas terrorists in Gaza are like athletes or movie stars in other places. They are absolute heroes to the Palestinian people who have pictures of them on their walls and describe them as total rockstars.

And finally, the doozy. I was told that on every single computer they find in people’s homes in Gaza, there is p**n everywhere. Every single computer has p**n on it. But get this, in addition to p**n, every single house has s** artifacts all over the place. S** toys, s**y outfits, and more. All over the place.

All in all, seems like a solid society they’ve built over there in Gaza…

Israel is dealing with some seriously twisted and morally depraved human beings who are told from age zero that Jews are nothing more than animals that deserve to be killed wherever they are.

This society is rotten to the core and needs to be denazified from the ground up. Anything else will just be a bandaid on a society that needs open heart surgery.

Everything about the situation is absolutely awful without having to resort hyperbole, superlatives, and exaggeration. We can leave those to the liars on the other side.

Wanted to say something along these lines, but couldn't find the words. Thank you.

I doubt grandpa is attending the funeral, but it would be epic if Israel took him out that way.

I always feel that bombing the funerals of terrorists is a great way the exterminate their peers.

A grandson of Hassan Nasrallah was killed by an IDF strike.
דיווח בסוריה: צה"ל חיסל אתמול בלבנון את נכדו של נסראללה

אתר "קול הבירה", המזוהה עם האופוזיציה הסורית, דיווח כי עבאס אחמד חליל, פעיל דיוויזיית האימאם חוסיין שחוסל אתמול בא-נאקורה שבדרום לבנון, הוא נכדו של מזכ"ל חיזבאללה חסן נסראללה. אביו, המכונה אבו עלי נוח, הוא המלווה האישי של נסראללה ונלחם לצד המשטר הסורי והמיליציות האיראניות בסוריה.
לטענה על היותו של חליל הנכד של נסראללה אין אימות ממקור נוסף, ובצה"ל לא מכירים את הקשר בין השניים. בדיווח נכתב כי זו לא הפעם הראשונה שקרוב של נסראללה נהרג במלחמה. בינואר חוסל מפקד כוח רדואן וויסאם טוויל בעיירה חרבת סלם בדרום לבנון. לפי פרסום של אותו האתר אחרי התקיפה, גם לטוויל היה קשר משפחתי לחסן נסראללה, דרך אחת מנשותיו של מזכ"ל חיזבאללה.

The shayla is on which day do soldiers in Gaza city keep Purim יד or טו.
Quote
Chief Rabbi HaGaon HaRav Yitzchak Yosef issued a p’sak regarding what day the IDF soldiers should be mekayeim the mitzvos of Purim in the Gaza Strip, which is a location that may have been surrounded with a wall at the time of Yehoshua.

In a lengthy teshuva that examines the halachic position of the Gaza Strip, HaRav Yitzchak paskened that IDF soldiers serving in Gaza should read the Megillah on the 14th of Adar only (Motzei Shabbos and Sunday this year) and should not read it on the 15th, even without a bracha.

HaRav Yitzchak writes that since today there are no Jews living in Gaza, it has the status of a city of goyim which is not populated by Jews. According to the Yerushalmi, a Jew in a city of goyim reads the Megillah on the 14th only, even in cities surrounded by a wall. Also, the Rishonim pasken that even in a city surrounded by a wall, there needs to be at least ten talmidei chachamim in the city in order to read the Megillah on the 15th.

Also, it’s unclear if the entire Gaza Strip is classified as a city that may have been surrounded by a wall or only the “city of Gaza itself” has that status. We hold according to the poskim that say that the villages surrounding a city which is in safeik of being a walled city (even if it’s populated by Jews), do not read the Megillah on the 15th.

HaRav Yitzchak emphasized that his p’sak stems from the unique status of the Gaza Strip, which has no established Jewish settlement and that the p’sak does not diminish the kedushah of Purim and the IDF soldiers can fulfill the mitzvah of Kriyas Megillah properly on the 14th.

this is not new...

what did the gush katif people do?
If you read it, it seems it may have been different when there were Jews living there.
