Netanyahu: “The Start Date” for Gaza Invasion “Has been set”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a nationwide address today, telling Israelis that the “Start date and time” for the Ground Invasion of Gaza “has been set” by the War Cabinet.

“We are preparing for a ground entry. The timing of the action was determined by the War Cabinet together with the Chief of Staff.”

Netanyahu proclaimed that the entire world must unite to defeat the ‘Axis of Evil’, just as it united to defeat the Nazis.

Israel is preparing for a war not just against Hamas, but also Iran, and expects the US and Europe to join this “battle of civilization” against “barbarism”

Earlier today, media outlets in Israel began reporting the government decided to delay the start of the ground invasion in order to allow time for “dozens” of American missile defense systems, to arrive in the Middle East.

Over a dozen such systems are allegedly to be sent ASAP to several Middle East countries and to US bases throughout the region.

For some reason, THAAD systems are also being sent.   

It is VITAL that YOU, the reader, understand that THAAD, which stands for Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense, are ALMOST useless against missiles within 50 miles, but are used to intercept incoming ICBM’s from space.

It seems clear from the deployment of THAAD to several areas, that the US is expecting ICBM’s will be launched in the near future.


The United States will send up to 12 batteries of THAAD and Patriot air defense systems to the Middle East. They will be deployed in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan, Iraq, UAE and Qatar.

DEAD: Chief Military Commander of HAMAS


*Chief military commander in Hamas!* was reportedly killed about an hour ago.  INITIAL REPORTS claim he was killed . . . . “abroad.”  Other reports claim he was in Gaza.   All very unclear t this time.

This is the man who reportedly gave all the orders from the beginning  . . .  and has allegedly been responsible for several years for everything that happens in Gaza.

Middle East exploding in escalations

Political talk from the Middle East is escalating out of control in the Israel-Hamas conflict.

The ongoing war” between Hamas and Israel is causing all sorts of collateral trouble around the world. None if it is getting better; all of it is getting worse.

This morning, President Recypt Erdogan of Turkiye’ said publicly “Hamas is not a terrorist organization. It is a group of mujahideen fighting to protect their lands.”

In a speech to the Turk Parliament, Erdogan made clear his positions:

He talked about the indiscriminate bombing of Gaza and then said “Israel will not achieve anything by raining bombs on children’ irrespective of ‘whether the US is behind you or not'” and pointed out “O Israel, this West owes you a lot, but Turkey does not!”

Then, shockingly, Erdogan said “We will do everything against Israel, diplomatically and militarily if necessary.” He then canceled energy deals between Turkiye’ and Israel, and also canceled a scheduled trip to Israel.

Ominously, Erdogan also said “When the powers that they rely on today, are gone tomorrow, the first place that the Israeli people will look for trust and mercy will be Turkey, just like 500 years ago.”

He finished by offering a sort of Olive Branch by saying “We are ready to be one of the guarantors of the Palestinian side with our humanitarian, political and military presence. We invite countries with the will to evaluate our offer.”

(Hal Turner Remark: I spoke this morning to several of my former colleagues from my years working with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force and more than one told me “Don’t you see, it’s just a matter of time before every single Muslim nation sides against Israel, Erdogan’s speech is a signal, the global war is about to begin.”)

Elsewhere, referring to the 2.3 Million people in the Gaza Strip, the Prime Minister of Qatar said publicly today “Cutting water, electricity, food, and medicine from civilians is ‘unacceptable.'”

Libya officially EJECTED the Ambassadors from the US, UK, Italy, and France . Libya accused these countries of supporting the Israeli genocide of Palestinians in Gaza.

Libya also called for a halt to oil and gas exports to countries that support Israel.

In Yemen, the leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah movement announced Yemen is ready to mobilize hundreds of thousands of people to fight alongside Palestinians.

Jordan’s King Abdullah today told French President Emmanuel Macron that ending the war in Gaza was an urgent necessity and warned that there could otherwise be an “explosion” in the region.

At the United Nations in New York, even the Secretary General spoke against what Israel is doing, saying “Even in war, there are rules.”

Earlier this month, Speaking at a UN general debate on the Middle East in New York, Guterres created fury when he said: “It is important to … recognize the attacks by Hamas did not happen in a vacuum. The Palestinian people have been subjected to 56 years of suffocating occupation.”

In response to those remarks, Israel announced today it is banning United Nations representatives from visiting the country “to teach them a lesson.”

Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei publicly said this morning “The Zionist regime has suffered a decisive blow. It has been wounded and is crippled. The West is struggling to keep it on its feet using weapons and bombs.” He added “Palestine will definitely be victorious.”

Khamenei went on to say “The Zionist regime is taking revenge on defenseless Palestinian people, children, and women because it was incapable of confronting the Muslim fighters, and it will also be incapable in the future.” He added “The United States is complicit in the attacks on women and children.”

With the US re-deploying the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower aircraft carrier and its Strike Group toward the Persian Gulf, Iran is deploying missile and drone units of the army and the Revolutionary Guards on the shores of the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman.

Ali Fadavi, IRGC deputy commander-in-chief made a remark publicly this morning which has caught the attention of American military planners.

He said “We have technologies in the military field that no one knows about, and the Americans will know about them when we use them.”

On Tuesday, a news agency close to Iran’s IRGC said Hezbollah’s involvement in a war with Israel was now “likely,” and could use precision-guided missiles with a range capable of striking all of Israel.


For its part, like clockwork, the Israeli Air Force is hitting the runway of Aleppo Airport in Syria, shutting down what they say is the key Iranian-Syrian delivery link. Syrian media is confirming this additional Israeli airstrike against the Aleppo airport. It marks the third time the airport has been hit in recent weeks


The Israel Army requested an approval to assassinate Hezbollah’ Hassan Nasrallah, Deputy Head of the Hamas’ Political Office Saleh Arouri, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) Ziyad Nakhala, but Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s cabinet refused.

German special forces are gathering in Cyprus and preparing for possible military evacuation operations, according to Major General Dirk Faust, the commander of the Joint Task Force.


Standard & Poors (S&P) has reportedly DOWNGRADED Israel’s creditworthiness to “Negative.”

This is a very significant sign that things are not going well for Israel — overall — and that the big money is now looking at Israeli investments as something to avoid.

The money people always have the deep-inside-scoop and for S&P to do something like this, NOW, is a crystal clear indicator that the future of Israel is now in question

Thousands of Egyptians on the trigger: Israeli plan to displace Palestinians in Sinai leaked – Sisi deploys 4th Armored Division

The president of Egypt inspected the Egyptian forces

At a very critical point is the situation throughout the Middle East and Africa with the president of Egypt Abdel Fattah al-Sisi inspecting the 4th Armored Division of the 3rd Army in Suez, as announced by his spokesman Ahmed Fahmy.

Al-Sisi inspected fighters, tanks and other military equipment in the Sinai Peninsula, on the western tip of the Sinai Peninsula, about 215 km from Egypt’s border with the Gaza Strip.

As he even stated to the army, the military exercise was aimed at recalling the 1973 war against Israel.

Adding fuel to the fire was a secret Israeli document from the country’s Ministry of Information which – unknown how – was leaked to the Israeli media.

The document examines three alternatives for the post-war era, but the alternative “that will yield positive and long-term strategic results” is to transfer the citizens of Gaza to Sinai while calling for the creation of a Buffer Zone inside Egypt!

Surprise Mobilization of Russia’s Nuclear Triad over Iran: R-29RMU Sineva and ICBM Yars Launched – Deployed for Massive Retaliatory Strike

Red alert for Russian nuclear strategic forces

B. Putin gave an order for the sudden mobilization of the country’s nuclear arsenal as the Israeli ground operation in Gaza is about to begin and no one knows how it will develop.

The Russians have so far not confirmed that this is the annual exercise of the strategic nuclear deterrence forces called “Grom”, which causes particular concern.

According to Russian information, NATO will further strengthen its forces in the Eastern Mediterranean in the next few hours, which accelerated the developments.

One thought on “News from the Middle East – 26 October, 2023

  1. Thanks for the updates. I don’t think things will turn to custard (as in multiple nations being involved & huge devastation) this time. The Septics are sending a carrier group to the gulf and things look ominous for Iran (well, quite possibly the carrier group too) but there can be no doubt the Russians will be telling the Septics that should there be attacks by the US that their carrier groups will be toast. It’s not happening this time, unfortunately that time is still to come.
