Israel is surrounded by its enemies on every side. They seek to destroy the tiny nation, so they no longer have shared the land with them. The militants want to see Israel destroyed because they view the people as foreigners within their land. The dispute between Israel and their enemies goes backs thousands of years. By biblical records, they have the right to the land and legally by decree of nations that support Israel’s existence.
Various groups around Israel have been attacking using rockets for decades. They launch them into the borders hoping that some rockets will hit civilians and destroy buildings. Various attempts have been made to introduce a peaceful solution to the violence. But the terrorists do not want to have peace. They want to see the destruction of all the Jewish people.
Israel’s enemies do not care if they kill civilians. They launch their rockets into the country with no target in mind. Israel, on the other hand, is selective in their retaliation responses. They attack military sites and terrorist leaders. They have never intentionally attacked civilians with intent to kill. For all practical purposes, they try to live at peace with their neighbors.
The terrorists use every cease-fire or peace treaty as a time to rearm themselves. When they have enough rockets to launch they fire them into Israel and hope that the international community forces Israel to a cease-fire. They use this time to get ready for the next attacks.
Israel has had to tighten its borders in attempts to keep terrorists from sneaking in and planting bombs around Israel. They limit the number of Palestinians that can enter Israel for work and other business adventures. The Palestinians are the ones that are pushing for Israel to give up their lands, so they can take over. For years the Palestinians have been seen as a terrorist organization. Just recently they have been pushing to be recognized as a sovereign nation.
For Israel, the attacks from militant groups in the Gaza area continue. The Palestinians still have not condemned the actions of the terrorists because they are the ones supporting the attacks. The latest attempts by the militants have been to release balloons over the borders with bombs attached to them. The balloons are silent, so they travel without much attention until it is too late.
The terrorists attach the bombs to the bottom of the balloons and send them towards their targets. Netivot is one city that the terrorists love to attack. As the bombs enter the area they are detonated as they get close to their targets. Each time a balloon cluster is a scene the military is quick to respond. These cluster of balloons could attract children that would otherwise be killed by an explosion.
The balloons have been used for months by the terrorists. Many of the land in the country away from buildings and people. But some are making their way into populated areas. One police official believes it is just a matter of time before one of the balloon bombs kills a person. The militants want to cause fear in the Jewish population. The contested Gaza Strip is a 140-square-mile section of Israel. This is the area that the bombs are being released.
President Trump is in full support of Israel. He wants to see them living in peace with their neighbors. But their neighbors want to have nothing to do with Israel or the United States. The president has recently recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and areas that are contested as Israel’s property to settle. This has led to the terrorists to ramp up their attacks on the Jewish people.
One man from the Gaza area has admitted that the balloons are meant to cause fear in the people. He lies when he states that they are not meant to kill kids. This is just his way of appearing to be kind to the little children. But by launching the balloons his actions tell a different story. He would see all of them killed by the very weapons that are made to destroy people.
