Remember that the majority of the IDF soldiers are civilians, they are reservists, civilians with some limited military training. They are now tasked with taking Gaza City and removing Hamas. After all the bombing then, the city is an ideal location for asymmetrical warfare. It can be defended with RPG’s which can destroy armoured vehicles quite easily
Fancy being a sitting duck in an Israeli armoured vehicle? No I thought not, nor do I. Did these Israeli citizens have anything to do with the creation of this war? No, of course not, citizens never do, only politicians, spooks and military folk
So I weep for all innocent victims of this false “war”, on both sides. The war is totally unnecessary from every human perspective. Hamas is controlled opposition, so the “war” was created by the same occulted controllers, for their numerous geopolitical, and economic, reasons. Reasons that have been thoroughly documented in many places, none of it is secret, it’s all readily available, if you know where to look. The fools who rely on the MSM haven’t a clue about that of course
My ongoing advice to anyone who is interested is to stay detached. Do not invest your own energy in taking sides. That is futile, no citizen of any nation anywhere can impact this war in any way whatsoever. So emotionally attaching yourself to one of the sides is not healthy for you. There are no winners in war amongst the people, only losers
“It is obvious that the ruins of Gaza provide substantial ambush locations for Hamas to utilize it’s 105 mm bazookas and recoilless rifles, RPGs which looks to be standard gear for their troopers. I would imagine that trip mines will be laid once the IDF try entering the streets off the beaches.
IDF is learning the Bakhmut lesson, armor is more of a target than an asset in urban fighting. The home made RPGs probably cost a few hundred dollars, taking out multi million dollar armored vehicles. This is child’s play to what Hezbollah can do.
Hamas posted footage shows this. You can see windows, doorways, holes in walls everywhere. Notice the narrow streets and alleyways. Several clips shows Hamas fighters even taking aim at the tanks from the streets and at close range. The weapons used seem well suited. Small hit and run squad tactics are employed and since the IDF delayed the ground offensive, Hamas has no doubt planned out and mapped every nook, cranny, hole – and route…..
More footage shows firing from overhead windows. These are not stationary positions, and the weapons used have good ranges. These firing positions are everywhere, and Hamas shooters and snipers move from spot to spot. Notice the holes in the building sides at 30 seconds…..
Heavy artillery and more bombing of these near the beach neighborhoods will take Hamas underground and create even more cover after. It seems logical that gas may be used by the IDF, but that is risky for their own troops and would require sappers. That may also be another red line for Hezbollah and the potential unified Muslim world to enter the war.
For the IDF to press on they will need to get off the beaches and send highly trained units to clear these buildings and tunnels before being able to proceed to the rest of Gaza City. Otherwise it will end up like whack a mole.”
