Israel Tricks Hamas With Brilliant Tactical Move, Then Launches Ferocious Air Campaign

Brilliant job. The IDF deceived Hamas into thinking a ground campaign in Gaza was imminent. This “provoked Hamas to send its anti-tank missile teams and mortar squads that were set to attack Israeli forces into what the IDF refers to as Hamas’ ‘Metro,’ a network of underground tunnels built by Hamas after the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas where Hamas moved its terrorists and stored weapons.” Once the trap was set, and Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists were exposed, the Israeli Air Force bombed the tunnels. 160 aircraft dropped over 450 missiles on 150 targets in precision strikes. The 40-minute air strike devastated Hamas. The IDF does not know how many Hamas terrorists were killed in the strike just yet.

“All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.” Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Israel Tricks Hamas With Brilliant Tactical Move, Then Launches Ferocious Air Campaign

By Daily Wire, May 14, 2021

On Thursday night, the Israel Defense Forces started gathering ground forces near the Israeli border with the Gaza Strip, preparing for what looked like a ground assault into the area from where Hamas has launched myriad rockets attacking the Jewish state.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated the campaign against Hamas was far from over, adding that Israel “would exact a very heavy price from Hamas and the other terrorist organizations. We are doing so and we will continue to do so with great force. The last word has not been said and this operation will continue as long as necessary in order to restore the quiet and security to the State of Israel.”

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz called up 9,000 reserve soldiers. Israel Defense Forces even issued a tweet stating, “IDF air and ground troops are currently attacking in the Gaza Strip.”

“Some armored and infantry battalions joined the artillery batteries that had been deployed days earlier to pound Hamas and Islamic Jihad targets,” The Jerusalem Post reported, adding, “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.”

For example:

Voice of America reported, “In response to the buildup, Hamas military spokesman Abu Obeida said the group was not afraid of a ground invasion, saying any invasion would be a chance ‘to increase our catch’ of dead or captive soldiers, according to The Associated Press.”

But all the rhetoric from Israeli officials and the build-up of ground forces was a tactical deception. The news that Israel was commencing a ground assault reportedly provoked Hamas to send its anti-tank missile teams and mortar squads that were set to attack Israeli forces into what the IDF refers to as Hamas’ “Metro,” a network of underground tunnels built by Hamas after the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas where Hamas moved its terrorists and stored weapons.
