The military later clarified that troops had not invaded the Gaza Strip, but soldiers had begun attacking. This salvo represents the latest strike in an escalating conflict that began with skirmishes at the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City on Monday and Hamas firing rockets at Israel.
“IDF air and ground troops are currently attacking in the Gaza Strip,” the Israeli military announced.

The IDF later clarified that its troops had not entered Palestinian territory but they had begun to carry out an attack “in the Gaza Strip” without boots on the ground, Agence France-Press reported .
Tanks and artillery were deployed, but no ground troops crossed into Gaza, Axios reported . Israel has called up 9,000 reservists and massed at least three brigades on the border with Gaza, which Hamas controls.
Israel celebrated “Jerusalem Day,” marking its capture of East Jerusalem in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. The march appears to have brought an increased police presence, enflaming tensions regarding six Palestinian families who face eviction in favor of Jewish settlers. Palestinians protested the evictions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, the Temple Mount, near the third-holiest site in Islam. Rioters reportedly threw rocks at police and police opened fire, injuring hundreds.
Hamas threatened to attack Israel if police did not leave the compound. Hamas fired about 1,600 rockets into Israel, but the Iron Dome interceptor system blocked about 90 percent of them . Even so, the rockets killed one Israeli soldier and six Israeli civilians, including one child.
Israel has responded with rockets of their own, and Gaza has reported at least 109 Palestinians killed, including 28 children. The IDF has claimed to have killed several Hamas commanders in the strikes.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
