Last night the IDF took out communications antennae on the top floor of a building used by Hamas. Only problem? The rest of the world’s media were on the other floors.
And today we find out that the IDF now have control of Hamas’ airwaves and are using them to broadcast warnings! Sounds like these two events are connected!
It’s astonishing that the IDF can do this with very little collateral damage.
Our intrepid New York Times reporter, Jodi Rudoren was obviously part of the team of crack progpaganda diseeminators that Hamas rushed to show for she writes on Facebook:
So, I missed my beloved spinning class this a.m., but caught a little exercise climbing 11 flights to the roof of a building in downtown Gaza City where seven journalists were injured in an early morning attack. It was one of two strikes on media centers that have caused alarm, with the Foreign Press Assn in Jerusalem issuing a strong statement — Western media including Fox News, Sky News, CBS and Germany’s ARD had offices in the buildings. The IDF has promised but not delivered an explanation. In related news, some colleagues did manage to get through the checkpoint and back to Israel, despite rumors that Hamas would not allow them, and we are checking out a report that Israel has taken over Hamas radio.
I’m thinking the lifts in that building are probably not so good today right?
Meanwhile here is Avital Liebervich giving a mild warning to jounalists to stay out of the way of Hamas. All of Hamas.
And here is confirmation that the IDF did exactly what they said. They just took out some antennae on the roof without significantly damaging the structure of the building. Astonishing.
