LOL: Israel Tricked Hamas Into Taking Refuge In Their Tunnels.
Then They Bombed the Tunnels.
Hundreds of Hamas terrorists die of covid-related airstrikes.
Israel used the media to put out the disinformation that Israel was already invading Hamas-controlled territory.
This caused Hamas to seek the protection of their hidey-holes.
The Israeli military apparently used a brilliant deceptive maneuver to take out Hamas’s terrorist fighting force and underground tunnels — in a single blow.
In what could only be described as killing two birds with one stone, the Israel Defense Forces on Thursday night told news reporters that the Israeli ground forces were on their way to Hamas-held Gaza.
The news spread quickly through the mainstream media and affiliated social media accounts. Believing an Israeli ground invasion to be imminent, Hamas ordered its terrorist fighters to seek shelter in the tunnel network dug up under the Gaza city.
What followed the Hamas mobilization was a massive wave of Israeli airstrikes — comprising of 160 aircraft — on the Gaza tunnel network with the jihadi group�s top terror brass sitting underground, right where the IDF wanted them.
The Jerusalem Post seems to imply here that the “foreign press” was all to happy to carry news of Israel’s invasion of Hamas-held territory — because they love depicting Israelis as always attacking peaceful Palestinians.
At midnight, the IDF Spokesperson�s English department tweeted that “IDF air and ground troops are currently attacking in the Gaza Strip.” The foreign media jumped at the tweet, interpreting it to mean that Israel was sending ground forces into Gaza, a major escalation in the current operation and a sign that it was far from over.
The media is so predictably, reflexively, robotically anti-semitic that its anti-semitism can be used against them, as well as against the Hamas terrorists the media flacks for.
