Hamas-Linked Group Takes Credit For Rockets Fired On Israel After Trump Speech

On Thursday, the Palestinian armed group al-Nasser Salah al-Deen Brigades announced in an official statement that its fighters fired several rockets from Gaza strip targeting Israeli settlements north of it. The statement was released by al-Nasser Salah al-Deen news agency “al-Buraq” and the armed group stressed that this is only the first response to Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and warned that more will follow.


A volley or rockets was fired out of Gaza on Thursday in response to Trump's controversial Jerusalem announcement.

Meanwhile, the region continues to be on edge with widespread protests breaking out Thursday in response to Trump's Wednesday afternoon speech formally recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, and included plans to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Many of these protests spiraled into violent confrontations at various locations across Israel and the Palestinian territories, including clashes between Arab protesters and Israeli soldiers in Ramallah and other places in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Protests frequently featured the burning of the American and Israeli flags as well as images of President Trump.

During the evening Thursday (local time), the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed the volley of rockets from the Gaza Strip, issuing a statement through the official IDF Twitter account, while also stating that the Israeli Army responded to the attack. "A short while ago, a projectile was fired from northern Gaza & exploded in southern Israel. In response to that fire & the projectiles fired at Israel throughout the day that fell short in Gaza, an IDF tank & an IAF aircraft targeted two terror posts in Gaza" the message stated.

The IDF followed the message with a warning that it would hold Hamas directly responsible for all "hostile activity" and threats coming from Gaza: "The IDF holds Hamas responsible for the hostile activity perpetrated against Israel from the Gaza Strip."

The Al-Nasser Salah al-Deen Brigades rocket attack was likely coordinated with the Hamas Movement as the al-Nasser Brigades are one of the main allies of Hamas in the Gaza Strip.


The Gaza based Al-Nasser Salah al-Deen Brigades took credit for the Thursday rocket attack on southern Israel.

Local sources from the Gaza Strip reported that Israeli warplanes are currently highly active over Gaza right now. The sources added that warplanes were seen dropping flares for unknown reasons.

The Israeli Army will likely respond to the Gaza rocket attack in the upcoming hours or overnight; however, unlike previous sporadic exchanges of fire, things are likely to escalate to a dangerous level due to the ongoing Jerusalem crisis.

The Israeli Army confirmed that at least two rockets targeted the settlements of Hof Ashkelon and Sha’ar HaNegev north of Gaza Strip in southern Israel. Several Israel sources claimed that the Israeli anti-rocket system “Iron Dome” successfully intersected the rockets; however, the Israeli Army did not confirm these claims and there were no reports of casualties from the rocket strikes. 

Previous to Trump's announcement, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Jordan’s King Abdullah II had warned the president that the announcement would have “dangerous” repercussions for regional stability. Separately, the Palestinian delegate to the United Kingdom said on Wednesday that President Trump's move to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel signals "a declaration of war" in the region. “He is declaring war in the Middle East, he is declaring war against 1.5 billion Muslims, hundreds of millions of Christians that are not going to accept the holy shrines to be totally under the hegemony of Israel,” Manuel Hassassian told BBC 4 Radio's "Today."

The Palestinians seek east Jerusalem as the capital of a future independent state and fear that Trump’s declaration essentially imposes on them a disastrous solution for one of the core issues in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “There is no way that there can be talks with the Americans. The peace process is finished. They have already pre-empted the outcome,” said Palestinian official Hanan Ashrawi. “They cannot take us for granted.” The U.S. decision “destroys the peace process,” added Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah.

As anger builds among Palestinians and within the broader Arab world, some observers fear that a third intifada could be imminent - this after Hamas leader Smail Haniyeh called for a new Palestinian intifada, or uprising early on Thursday.

Like I said: Will Trump move the Jew capital to Jerusalem?

Of course, the idiot will. Trump is a Jew.

Just like, Obama, Bush and (Bill & Hillary) Clinton are all Jews.

What is weird is this; that 2000 years ago, there were no people even resembling Jews in the middle-east at all.

Turns out that there is not a single ancient Jewish city in what is now called Israel. There is not a single city where the Hebrew script is used on the statues and buildings. There is not a single city where the buildings are in the ancient Jewish architectural style. In fact, there is not even a category of "ancient Jewish architectural style".

If you check out all the ancient cities in Israel, they are all Greek, and their ruins are still there for you to visit. Their inscriptions are in the Greek script and the buildings are in the ancient Greek architectural styles.

Here is a list of some of the known ancient Greek cities in (and near) Israel; Ecdippa, Seleucia, Ptolemais, Taricheia Arbela, Asochis, Sepphoris, Hippos, Dion, Sycaminum, Bucolon Polis, Itabyrium, Gadara, Abila, Dora, Comus, Gephrus, Crocodilion Polis, Caesarea, Straton's Tower, Narbata, Scythopolis, Pella, Samaria, Amathus, Ragaba, Gerasa, Apollonia, Sicima, Pegae, Joppa, Arimathea, Jamnia, Port of Jamnia, Lydda, Modiin, Aphaerema, Philadelphia, Birtha, Gazara, Beth Horon, Dok, Jericho, Samaga, Esbus, Medaba, Ladder of Tyre, Azotus, Port of Azotus, Accaron, Jerusalem, Ascalon, Anthedon, Gaza, Marissa, Beth Zur, Hebron, Adora, Engeddi.

The ancient Jewish cities in Israel are,.... well there aren't any. Not even one.

Here's an interesting example of a first century BC Greek inscription (i.e., in Greek letters) from Jerusalem's Temple Mount forbidding the entry of Gentiles (i.e., non-Greeks) to the Temple precinct....

Why the fuck are the muzzies going retard? Israel is pulling some desperate moves and have just shot themselves in the foot with this embassy thing. They've killed the 2 state solution so all you have to do is STOP BLOWING SHIT UP and outbreed the jews - One of those things is easier.If Trump IS playing 5-d chess then this was a masterstroke.

Luc X. Ifer Dec 7, 2017 5:25 PM "Israel will respond with nukes."

Its a real shame that Israel has no nukes.

They were too cheap to spend trillions of dollars developing them.

Much cheaper just to lie and claim you have them.

That's why Mordechai Vanunu got 18 years in solitary. That way no one could know that he wasn't in prison at all.

It is time for a one state solution.  The writing is on the wall and decades of rocks vs guns has resulted in a miserable life for Palestinians.  Best to begin some negotiations while they still have something to negotiate.  One state does not mean one religion or a "right of return", it would be a slow process and hopefully todays young would see some benefits in a life that is currently destine for more of the same 'ol.   These rote hostilites are only supporting some warlord or power hungry, meal ticket asshole at the expense of the rest.

So muslims do not accept Jewish sovereignty, the Jewish claim to Jerusalem, and muslims believe in using violence to impose their demands. Considering they expelled the Jews from every single arab nation, I don’t see why the Jews shouldn’t just do the same back to them and relocate them without compensation, since they sized Jewish lands in the arab nations including ‘the west bank’ when the Jordanians conquered and occupied it. Who cares about these leftist anti semites who pretend we don’t exist and they can make up history when ever they want to adjust their demands according to whatever they want whenever they want. The liars at msnbc and abc news don’t even mention that America refused to recognize the Jordanian occupation, they just steam roll ahead with their censored insistence that Israel needs to grant the ‘palestinian Arabic people’ who did not exist before 1967, A nation of their own, with Jerusalem as its capital, which the worldwide leftist mafia will use to build tunnels, smuggle in guns through muslim controlled border crossings, and let in mercenaries under the pretense of the right of return after they riot A few times, after the Israelis have already said they accept msnbc’s and abc’s lies. They do this to shut up the Jews of Israel, so they don’t point out the Jews and white gentiles running all these communist nations, are pretending to be defenders of black and muslim victims of Jewish and white gentile racists impoverishing them and making them poor, and anyone who talks about the Jewish billionaires who attained their fortunes illegitimately must be A racist. The Jews of Israel can oppose this with moral conviction, but if their nation is filled with mercenaries walking around beating racist Jews then the left hopes it will keep them censored. Our history completely shows that numerous mass murders of Jews happened in the middle east before and after islam, in different time periods, in different nations, it did not matter if their was A king who liked the Jews and ended their discrimination, their would be another one who reinstated it soon enough. Undoubted awareness that Jews had no equal rights under the law in muslim countries, and an entire population that mostly knows it, and can easily be persuaded to it. White gentile women and men are far less open to hearing about facts of black and muslim immorality, unwillingness to consider the rights of others, violence, cruelty, stupidity and dangerous thoughts and choices. If Africa was to attain nuclear weapons they would use them for sure. The same goes for the muslims. In G-d I trust.

Peace? Are you fucking senseless or just that special kind of dolt that families keep locked away?He's a businessman, not a pacifist. He has been an agitant at his worst and an irritating troll at his best. This is what he was hired for. The presidency isn't sold to peace-loving people. Obama got a Nobel peace prize for drone strikes...But yes...this sorrowful cowtowing to Israelis is somehow his undoing?It wasn't playing both sides with them and the Saudis?Donnie came from the pit. They don't hire outside the pit. Are you FUCKING SERIOUS?!Sorry Bach.. I cannot fathom if your peace comment was meant to be consumed as it is written or if it's written to be critical.This man is in no way attempting to leave a legacy of ...peace. He's threatening a fat gook with nukes, escalating the "crisis" to new heights with his unwavering presidential gut.I sincerely hoped that most of the commentators of this site might have some more critical lenses for this man, but it does in fact seem that a vast majority of you are sightless dumb fucks. God damn, someone needs to have mercy on you fucking shadows when the mushroom clouds go off. You aren't excused from that armageddon, dumbass(es).

For the news I receive here I am overwhelmed by the ignorance and shallow depth your minds can conjure. Christ, think for yourselves. If you don't see a death sentence in your immintent futures as a result of this fuckwit, I don't know what will brain you into waking the hell up. I'm kind of ashamed that men as small as you share the same species as I. Clearly I hope there is some foundational generational gap in where your maturation and forward thinking/critical thinking skills were evaporated from. Some dingy pool of fecal waste that you all crawled from.Yes though, lets discuss his legacy of peace. Ha fucking ha. Dumb bastard. Someone needs to have mercy on your stupidity. It will never be me.

Couple of rockets to nowhere garners a headline, but knee-capping Palestinian children on a regular basis...The betting man in me says Israel supplies Hamas those shitty rockets as a pretext, but what do I know?
