C2 Above the Fold


Two soldiers killed by Hamas infiltrators Saturday morning

Two IDF soldiers were killed Saturday morning when Hamas terrorists infiltrated Israeli territory via a tunnel under the border fence from the central Gaza Strip and opened fire on a military vehicle that was patrolling on the Israeli side of the border, the IDF said Saturday evening

The two were named as Amotz Greenberg, 45, a major in the reserves from Hod Hasharon, and Sgt. Adar Barsano, 20, from Nahariya. The information was cleared for publication after the families were informed.

The deaths were the first of soldiers killed by Hamas since Operation Protective Edge began on July 8.

The terrorist cell infiltrated Israeli territory through a tunnel, in an apparent attempt to carry out a major attack on one of the nearby communities, the army said. The IDF vehicle was not the intended target. Its presence at the scene prevented a much larger planned attack, military sources said late Saturday.

The army believes there are 20 more such tunnels, and that further efforts to infiltrate and kill Israelis are likely. Larger contingents of soldiers were deployed to the Israeli side of the Gaza border area after the incident, military sources said, to guard against further such attacks.

An initial investigation indicated that eight or nine Hamas gunmen clad in IDF uniforms infiltrated beneath the border fence.

The gunmen encountered the IDF patrol and opened fire with machine guns and anti-tank weaponry, killing the two officers, moderately wounding two other soldiers and lightly wounding two others.

Troops returned fire, killing one of the terrorists; others fled back into Gaza.

Military sources said that material found at the scene, including plastic handcuffs, indicated that the terrorists intended to kill and kidnap Israeli civilians and/or soldiers.

Malaysia Airline Shootdown Should Turn Eyes To Putin's Long Negative Record

Geopolitics: With the downing of a Malaysia Airlines jet over eastern Ukraine, all eyes turn to Vladimir Putin, whose role in arming Ukraine's rebels is known. Why is this man so aligned with the world's bloodiest causes?

To date, Russia's president has paid lip service to investigating Thursday's atrocity against a jetliner flying over a stronghold of pro-Russia rebels, Putin's proxies in slicing up Ukraine piece by piece. He's also sought a cease-fire.

But his sincerity has to be questioned given his resistance to the international investigation called for by the U.N., and Western investigators have been blocked from entering the crash site amid mixed reports about the fate of the flight's black boxes.

It also does not help that Ukraine has released what it says are intercepted telephone calls between gleeful rebels and Russian military intelligence officers, and bloggers have posted photos of what they say is the escaping surface-to-air missile launcher into Russia.

Meanwhile, Russia's lapdog press is releasing a stream of bizarre explanations for the shootdown designed to enrage the Russian public, none of them true.

In Masha Gessen's 2013 bio of Russia's leader, Putin says he grew up "a thug." Those words come into hard relief with the depraved cruelty of the airline shootdown. It's maybe the only way to understand his act — and the litany of global thuggery, listed just below:
