10:24pm Due to (apparent) problems in Facebook (and lots of complaints we have received), many people are not seeing updates from the Muqata in their feed. I can only hope this is a temporary FB problem and it will be resolved soon. In the meantime, you can manually check the FB page: www.facebook.com/Muqata, visit our blog: www.muqata.com or subscribe to our twitter feed: www.twitter.com/Muqata

Sorry for the inconvenience....It's not our fault

--Jameel and crew.

PS: We are still updating the FB page as often as we can....and we hope this will be resolved soon.

10:21am Roundup from IDF Spox.

Confirmed: IDF and Israeli security forces eliminated senior Hamas terrorists Raed Attar and Mohamed Abu Shamala in Gaza last night.

Attar and Abu Shamala were high-ranking Hamas commanders responsible for major terror attacks against Israelis.

Raed Attar played a major role in tunnel infiltrations, terror attacks that killed Israelis, and the kidnapping of SFC Gilad Shalit.

Abu Shamala, commander of Hamas forces in S Gaza, was directly involved in dozens of terror attacks, including the murders of IDF soldiers.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

9:56am Arab press in Gaza report yet another IDF targeted airstrike in Gaza against a top Hamas leader.

The Muqata Security team's analysis for today: There is going to be a major Hamas rocket retaliation against Israel today ... as Hamas rages over the loss of some of their top terror heads. We expect many rocket barrages like yesterday (over 140 rockets fired yesterday)...including at Central Israel and Jerusalem. Stay Safe everyone!

1:40am Channel 10 tv shows alleged death certificate of Hamas arch terrorist Muhammed Deif. I still have my doubts..


12:38am Channel 10 TV Reports that Hamas Terror Leader Muhammed Deif was indeed killed last night. We will wait and see...I still have my doubts.



Hamas claims they will start shooting at Ben Gurion Airport starting at 6am...and for Israelis to avoid football fields. I don't plan on being awake at 6am....we shall see what happens.
