Israel fears that if the six-month lull ends, more than 100 rockets and mortars will be fired into Israel over three days. The Israeli military has returned fire with Operation Cast Lead aimed at stopping Hamas’ attack on them; however they are also concerned about Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s statement “We warned Hamas repeatedly,” which suggests he knew conflict was coming all along but did nothing to stop it despite his own country being involved in another proxy war against Muslims like ourselves!
The Gaza War was a violent military campaign launched on 27 December 2008 by Israel with the stated aim of stopping Hamas rocket attacks and arms smuggling into Gaza. The conflict has also been called the 2009 Israeli–Gaza Massacre in Arab world (Arabic: مجزرة غديت). A fragile six-month truce expired less than two weeks ago, but there were no further outbreaks as both sides agreed to extend it until 19 January 2010 when negotiations will resume concerning new terms for peace talks which had hitherto broken down due largely at least partly over settlement proposals released last June 23rd.
The operation began after an intense bombardment targeting Hamas bases police training camps etcetera.
The conflict has been characterized by intense rocket attacks from both sides, with Israel carrying out air strikes against civilians in Hamas-held territory. Prayer rooms and homes were amongst several civilian buildings destroyed during this time period; medical facilities also suffered damage because many patients had nowhere else to go when their hospitals came under attack. The UN estimated that over 3 thousand people died wantonly due violence across the region – though numbers are believed accurate only until December 2008 when they stopped updating estimates altogether due reports findings which showed there could be up 10 000 more victims per month if not acted upon immediately.
After a devastating war that killed over 1400 people and left much of Gaza destroyed, an international donors’ conference announced $4.5 billion in aid for the Palestinians to be used mostly on rebuilding their homes after Israel’s offensive against Hamas was completed with two days left before its termination date on 3 March 2009
-This conflict came out as one known assonantious nickname “The Long War” because it lasted years without any sign or sight from peace until 18 January 2010 when both sides suddenly announced unilateral ceasefires which ended up working quite well even though there were many arrests made during those times where either side broke off negotiations.
Two Israeli soldiers and two Hamas militants were killed during clashes on the Gaza Strip’s southern border. The fighting broke out east of town last week, according to witnesses who spoke with BBC news agency; it is believed that these are their first deaths in hostile fire since Israel’s major offensive there back at start-of year 2009 (when they had quite a few).
On 18 August 2011, a squad of militants from across the Egyptian border opened fire at innocent people near Israeli soldiers. They first shot down an civilian bus which caused it’s passengers to flee for safety in panic. Minutes later there was an explosion next door as well-hit tank patrol along Israel’s fragile borders with Egypt; this attack killed four more civilians who were riding home together after work or school. The last moments before they died showed how bravely these heroes faced death: one man tried lifting up his child while another pulled out her chair so both could sit safely on ground below.
