Israeli Official: ‘The Next Battle with Hamas Will Be the Last’
Another Hamas member surrendered to Israeli authorities this week at the border with the Gaza Strip, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported.
According to the report, Bassam Mahmoud Baraka has extensive knowledge of the terror group’s attack tunnels. Baraka is the second senior Hamas member to be taken into Israeli custody recently.
Last month, Israeli forces captured Mahmoud Atawnah as he crossed into Israel to carry out a terror attack.
Two Arab teenagers from Gaza, both claiming familiarity with the labyrinth of attack tunnels, are also in Israeli custody. One of them said the tunnel system allows Hamas to traverse the Gaza Strip underground.
In the two years since Operation Protective Edge, launched to thwart Palestinian rocket fire on Israeli population centers, Hamas has invested heavily in the tunnel network, prompting one Israeli official to say the next conflict is “inevitable.”
Terrorist Kills Two Police Officers in Paris Suburb
In another suspected ISIS attack, a police commander was stabbed at least nine times outside his home in Magnanville, a suburb of Paris. The attacker then entered his home and took his partner, also a police officer, and their three-year-old son hostage.
RAID, an elite police unit called to the scene was unable to reach an agreement with the terrorist and stormed the house around midnight. They found the woman’s body, killed him, and rescued the child unharmed.
The terrorist, identified as Larossi Abballa, 25, posted a 13-minute video of the murders and 15 photos on Facebook, which removed the post the following morning.
During negotiations with police, Abballa reportedly identified himself with ISIS, though the group has yet to claim responsibility for the attack. Eyewitnesses say they heard him shouting Allahu Akbar (Allah is greater) and other Islamic slogans.
Hezbollah Suspected in Beirut Bank Bombing
Officials suspect Hezbollah may be behind Sunday’s bombing targeting a bank in Beirut that had enforced sanctions against individuals financing the terror group.
The 33-pound bomb, hidden in a flower pot, blew a hole in a concrete wall and shattered windows, injuring two passers-by, The Tower reported.
In compliance with a U.S. law passed last December, the Blom Bank closed accounts of customers doing business with Hezbollah, thereby ensuring it would not be blocked from doing business with American firms.
According to the report, Lebanese Interior Minister Nohad Machnouk said this bank was the only target.
Meanwhile, parliamentarian Saad al-Hariri, son of assassinated Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri, vowed that “terrorism will not intimidate the Lebanese people.”
Islamic Scholar: ‘Death Is the Sentence’ for Homosexuals
Many in the mainstream media propose a number of reasons why Omar Mateen murdered 49 innocent people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
Some say he was homophobic. Others say he was unstable and beat his wife or had easy access to guns. Still others claim he was not religiously motivated.
But ISIS and other Islamic groups believe and teach that homosexuals are people they consider worthy of death and terror itself has a great goal.
“There are many, many countries in the modern world of Islam, including Saudi Arabia, the Emirates, Brunei and others in which homosexuality is illegal and it is punished by capital punishment,” Islamic scholar Moshe Sharon told CBN News.
Both the Koran and the Hadith, the traditions of Islam, condemn homosexuality. In the Hadith, it says, “Whoever you find committing the sin of the people of Lot
