Israel’s announcement on Thursday night that the IDF was about to launch a massive ground incursion into Gaza was part of a diversion intended to maximize the damage of the true plan. While large numbers of tanks, armored personal carriers, and artillery lined up on the border, Hamas terrorists scrambled for cover underground in a massive network. That was the signal for more than 160 aircraft to jump into action, dropping 450 bombs containing over 80 tons of explosives, hitting 150 terror targets in 35 minutes, focusing on the underground city and collapsing it with the terrorists inside.
The target: The Hamas ‘Metro’ tunnel system in Gaza.
The operation: 160 aircraft, tanks, artillery and infantry units along the border.
