MI: Terror groups planning major attacks on Israel’s 60th

Military Intelligence Chief Amos Yadlin warned the government Tuesday that Palestinian terror organizations are interested in executing a large-scale terrorist attack ahead of Israel’s 60th anniversary celebrations.

“And it shall come to pass, that as ye were a curse among the heathen, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, and ye shall be a blessing: fear not, but let your hands be strong. For thus saith the LORD of hosts; As I thought to punish you, when your fathers provoked me to wrath, saith the LORD of hosts, and I repented not: So again have I thought in these days to do well unto Jerusalem and to the house of Judah: fear ye not.
—Zechariah 8:13-15

Yadlin said that the attack may be at the Gaza border, similar to the one Hamas failed to carry out a few days before Passover at the Kerem Shalom crossing.

Yadlin added that Hamas was also trying to break the blockade of Gaza by causing another border breach. Due to Egypt’s tightened security, however, Yadlin believes that this time the Hamas will focus on the Israeli border.

At first, Yadlin said, the organization would prefer a popular uprising, similar to the border breach in January, in which masses of Gazans streamed across the breached fence towards Egypt.

“However if the popular move fails, Hamas may try to breach the border in a military operation,” he warned.

Yadlin said that Hamas may also attempt kidnapping Israelis, placing snipers at the borders and placing explosive devices in the area.

According to Yadlin, the political leaders of Hamas are losing some of their power to the Islamic group’s military leaders.

    Israel will be in a war soon. With all these terrorist countries with rumors of war at the end of their tongues, Israel may not even have a choice if they are attacked on her 60th birthday! Once Israel is in a War, then the U.S will get involved and then the rest is history.
