The fallen soldiers were identified as Sergeant Shaked Dahan, 19, Sergeant Kiril Brodski, 19, and Staff Sergeant Tomer Yaakov Ahimas, 20.
A security official stated that Israel possesses intelligence that would allow for the retrieval of two of the fallen soldiers for burial, but has no such intelligence for the location of the third soldier. The families have also been notified of this development.
This is the first time since the massacre of October 7 that the IDF has confirmed that Hamas is holding the...
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said Israel is using U.S. military aid to violate human rights in Gaza.
Ocasio-Cortez made her comments Monday night in a tele-town hall meeting after a caller told her he wanted the Biden administration to defund Israel.
"Thousands of confirmed constituents have been calling into my office, calling for a cease-fire, calling for the conditioning of aid," she said in a video clip posted by Forbes. "It's not just my view, but it's also the view of our community that what we are witnessing is the gross violation of human rights in Gaza that is being done with U.S. military assistance.
"One of the things I have been raising continually is the nature of U.S. aid to Israel and how unique it has been and the way that, in my view, it has...
Prof. Yisrael (Robert) Aumann, a winner of the Nobel Memorial Prize and Israel Prize in economics, spoke with Arutz Sheva - Israel National News about the war against Hamas.
''Israel has taken appropriate measures. Hamas needs to be wiped out," he said. "The people of Gaza are not innocent bystanders, but a part of the circumstances that allowed Hamas to come to power. We pulled out of Gaza in 2005 and left them complete independence to do as they see fit. The high society has beautiful homes there. They could have chosen peaceful coexistence; instead, they chose to elect Hamas, shortly after we pulled out of there. Instead of peaceful coexistence, the population of Gaza chose to elevate Hamas to positions of power. We cannot ignore that, although we do not, at any tim...
Senior administration officials discussed ongoing efforts to secure humanitarian aid and prevent another mass displacement of civilians in southern Gaza
President Biden has apparently told Israeli government officials that when the IDF ground campaign moves into the southern part of Gaza, maximum efforts must be made not to produce further significant displacement of civilians.
In a briefing by senior administration officials with reporters, the U.S. leader has repeatedly said the IDF should not "replicate” what took place in northern Gaza during the first part of the ground incursion, during which hundreds of thousands of civilians were moved to a humanitarian zone in southern Gaza. Citing the limited capacities of the humanitarian relief network, Biden has urged Netanyahu and I...
One of Sunday's released terrorists, Alaa Abu Sanima, refused his dismissal from Israel and prison, according to a report by KAN News.
Avishai Greenzeig reported that the released terrorist refused to be released because he would not receive payment or salary from the Palestinian Authority. Though he tried, he was unsuccessful in his attempts to remain.
Did the prisoner remain in Israel?
Abu Sanima was released to the Gaza Strip to begin his life anew in Rafah, despite a lack of a salary from local authorities.
He was one of the 39 released prisoners who have been charged with terrorism and other security-related offenses.
"Most of the prisoners were released from the Ofer prison and the Jerusalem Detention Center," The Shin Bet (Israel Security Age...
An operational plan to eliminate the leader of Hamas in Gaza, Yahya Sinwar, has been presented to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at least six times in recent years. This information has been gathered through conversations with numerous senior figures in the security establishment, both past and present.
This wasn't merely a theoretical proposal but a well-thought-out and actionable plan that could be put into motion at any given moment. Notably, Sinwar doesn't spend most of his time in hiding; he maintains a visible presence and doesn't move between secret apartments or bunkers, unlike Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, who has followed such practices since 2006.
From Netanyahu's perspective, this information is of the utmost secrecy.
The plan to el...
IDF says Hamas violated Gaza ceasefire in 2 separate incidents, laying explosive devices that left Israeli soldiers wounded
EL AL FLIGHT 26—Dr. Dov Frankel settled into a seat on this overnight flight headed to Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport from Newark, N.J. He had driven in from Baltimore, where the emergency-room physician had just worked his 12th straight shift to clear his schedule for the next two weeks.
With a last-minute ticket in hand, Frankel was on his way to volunteer at Barzilai Medical Center, a hospital in Ashkelon, Israel, treating people injured following the Oct. 7 attack on Israel by Hamas, a U.S.-designated terrorist organization.
“I think my entire life was created for this moment,” said Frankel, 50, who arrived for the recent flight with barely enough time to get through the Israel national carrier El Al’s extensive check-in security proces...

Being part of the "third" generation is difficult. The first generation innovates. The second generation consolidates. The third generation often squanders the achievements of the previous two. It is never easy being third.
A well-known study discovered that financial wealth is generally squandered by the third generation. Through hard work and entrepreneurship, the first generation accumulates wealth. Appreciative of these efforts, the second generation preserves wealth. By contrast, the third generation, taking its privileges for granted, squanders wealth. The curse of the third generation.
Sefer Bereishit showcases the religious challenges of the third generation. Avraham was a revolutionary who introduced bold new ideas to the human imagination. He discovered a one G-d who was...

Baltimore, MD - Nov. 27, 2023 - I first heard of Khal Chassidim about two years ago. I had been living in Baltimore all my life, and I knew there was a Chassidishe Kollel group of families that had moved in the Pinkney area of town, but that's about it. I saw some chassidim at Seven Mile every once in a while, but that was pretty much the extent of my exposure.
The time came that I needed a preschool for my 3 year old twins (one of whom needed a specific style of learning). A few people told me some very positive things about Khal Chassidim, so I decided to do some research and find out more. Originally, we were just looking into the preschool, which is run by the amazing Mrs. Shoshana Sofer. My brothers had been in the TI preschool, under the capable care of Mrs. Sofer&r...
A BBC report presents a worrying picture of how Hamas prepared for the October 7th massacre and hid their activities from Israeli intelligence services.
According to the report, compiled by the channel's specialized crew for verifying information, the first of four training sessions had been announced by Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh as early as December 29th 2020. The exercises were codenamed "Strong Pillar".
The training included 10 separate armed Palestinian factions, among them Hamas, who practiced invading Israeli territory and carried out war games that included creating a joint command center between all the factions. Haniyeh noted at the time that it was a powerful message and symbol of solidarity between the various factions in Gaza.
In the following ye...

The Red Cross confirmed that it has received the fourth group of eleven hostages who have been released by the Hamas terrorist organization this evening.
Meanwhile, senior Hamas official Khalil al-Hayya said that the organization has enough hostages "to extend the truce by two days", and added: "We hope we can extend the ceasefire for a longer time."
The group is the fourth to be released by Hamas over the last four days as part of the hostage and ceasefire deal reached last week. Nine children and two of their mothers are being released.
The cabinet secretariat asked the ministers of the government to approve the increase of the pool of names of security prisoners who could be released under the hostage deal by 60 from its current 300. This is after Qatar announced that a deal had been...
