On Friday evening, the Israeli Defense Forces launched a massive attack on the Gaza Strip in retaliation after Hamas terrorists killed an Israeli soldier and launched several rockets into Israel, which were intercepted by the Iron Dome.

The death of the IDF soldier was under a gag order throughout the day. However, the gag order was lifted after the soldier’s family was tragically notified of his death during Shabbat.

Four Hamas terrorists were also killed in the attack on the Gaza Strip The Izzedine al-Qassam Brigade, an armed wing of Hamas confirmed that the four men killed by the IDF were members of HAMAS, which is a terrorist organization. The Hamas terrorists have been identified as Shaaban Abu Khatir, 26, Muhammed Abu Farhana, 31, and Mahmoud Qishta, 23, and 27-year-old Muhammed Badwan.

“Shots were fired at IDF troops from the Gaza Strip during the violent riots along the security fence. In response, IDF aircraft and tanks targeted eight military targets throughout the Gaza Strip belonging to the Hamas terror group,” the IDF said in a statement.

Around 11:15 pm on Friday night, the IDF conducted an air strike on 25 Hamas terrorist targets.

According to the IDF, the air strike destroyed HAMAS’s command’s control and command abilities. It also destroyed HAMAS offices, and severely damaged their defense abilities.

Residents of Southern Israeli communities in the Sdot Negev region near the Gaza Strip were advised to stay close to bomb shelters in the event of more Hamas rocket attacks.

In the event of a rocket attack, Israelis who live near the Gaza border have only 15 seconds to find a bomb shelter once the sirens begin ringing.

The IDF has continued to post updates about the air strikes and attacks on their official Twitter page.

Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime minister of Israel, has not yet released a public statement on social media about the IDF soldier who was killed by Hamas on Friday.

At Least 40 Americans Infected With Coronavirus Aboard Quarantined Cruise Ship

They will be treated in hospitals in Japan.

Published

At least 40 Americans aboard a cruise ship have been infected with the coronavirus, in a development that suggest the dangerous disease may transmit more rapidly than the public in the western world realizes.

Immunologist Anthony Fauci, an official with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, confirmed that 40 Americans had been diagnosed with the disease in an appearance on 60 Minutes Sunday.

Some reporting indicates that even more people have been infected with the disease, with figures ranging up to 355. These estimates include passengers of all nationalities. Those afflicted with coronavirus are being taken to Japanese hospitals to receive medical treatment.

The Americans were on board the cruise ship Diamond Princess, which is currently quarantined in Yokohama, Japan. The ship is host to the most pervasive outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic outside of China, where it originated. American passengers who tested negative of the disease have been evacuated from the ship and brought back to the United States on charter planes. Those infected with the virus will be treated in Japanese hospitals.

At least one American passenger who was traveling on board the Diamond Princess is refusing to take a U.S government charter plane back to the country, stating his belief to USA Today that the evacuation process the government is using to retrieve its citizens is not safe.

There’s considerable cause to believe the global public is being largely kept in the dark by the authoritarian Chinese government on the dangers posed by the quickly spreading virus. Estimates of the total count of people infected by the disease are largely unclear, with the Chinese government suspected of releasing deflated statistics in an effort to blunt criticism of their response to the epidemic.
