Hamas-Ruled Gaza Prepares for Next War Against Israel
In Gaza, there is no serious reconstruction and certainly no disarmament. Instead, the Hamas-ruled enclave is gearing up for its next war against Israel. Three months after Operation Protective Edge, nothing has changed in Gaza.
Reconstruction funds totaling USD $5.4 billion that were promised during negotiations in Cairo this summer continue to exist only on paper. “Palestinian” [Fatah] Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah is currently touring the Persian Gulf in an attempt to collect the pledges.
Israel, for its part, has been working for months with the UN to advance the reconstruction in Gaza [by sending the Hamas terrorists money, concrete, and supplies]. But every step of the way, Hamas has scuttled any progress, such as when it suddenly raised taxes on imported cement.
Earlier this week, Hamas forces proudly marched through Gaza City with large missiles and aerial drones, a clear message that the group intends to strike Israel even harder next time, even to the detriment of its own population.
