Israel carried out a new round of airstrikes in the Gaza Strip Tuesday night in what turned out to be the heaviest bombardment in the three-week conflict.
A stunning video (above) of the night-time barrage has surfaced showing spectacular explosions of Hamas-controlled building exploding and crumbling in the attack. Shells hit fuel tanks at Gaza's only power station during the strikes.
According to the Jerusalem Post, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel was prepared for an extended operation to further neutralize Hamas' ability to exact terror on his country:
"The action against the tunnels is a first and necessary step to the demilitarization of Gaza,” he said. “The process of preventing the arming of Gaza, the demilitarization, needs to be part of any solution.
And the international community must aggressively demand that.”
Netanyahu said instead of the international community allowing its funds to be used to buy concrete and mortar that are used to build terrorist tunnels inside Gaza, it needed to create a supervisory mechanism to ensure this would not happen again.
“When we raised this in the past,” Netanyahu said, “it was not taken seriously. This needs to change.”http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/watch-israeli-airstrikes-cause-massive-explosions-gaza-overnight
