For the first time, the Israeli occupation is waiting for the strikes of the resistance to end the war, and Gaza says: “God is with the patient.”

Since the start of the sudden Israeli aggression on Gaza, the resistance has been silent about responding for a whole day, and the occupation is in a state of tension and confusion, wondering why the resistance did not respond quickly, as the resistance used to. It even carried out gains for the resistance without firing a single missile.

Airports were closed and thousands of residents of the south in settlements moved to the north and closed their homes. Transportation, factories and schools were disrupted, and the occupation incurred huge financial losses without firing a single missile from Gaza, which dispelled the deterrent force in light of the Palestinian resistance choosing to wait and not to respond immediately.

Arab and Israeli analysts and experts confirmed that the resistance used a new strategy this time, which is “exhaustion by silence and prolonged breathing,” because it knows that the occupation wants to accelerate the end of the round of fighting and come out with gains, which are the assassination of Islamic Jihad leaders, and not to prolong the conflict that stops life in the Jewish state.

This Israeli dilemma and confusion was explained by the general and researcher on Middle East affairs at Tel Aviv University, Michael Milstein, in an interview with Israeli Radio May 9, 2023, saying: “We are rushing to reach the finish line and waiting for how and when to respond? This silence is basically an achievement for Hamas, which is achieving moral and practical achievements.”

Milistein expressed this patience-to-exhaustion strategy pursued by Hamas, saying: “God is with the patient, while Israel is in a hurry, living as if it were in a marathon and wanting everything quickly.”

Even when the resistance began to respond to the occupation, it continued to respond gradually and patiently to the occupation in order to deplete its capabilities and prolong the disruption of life in the occupying state, which costs it a lot.

Another thing that the Zionist ministers alluded to was the end of the effectiveness of the Israeli nuclear weapon in confronting the resistance, especially because of the atomic fallout and the ability of the resistance to harm the Zionist state without being affected by the nuclear deterrence.

This was implicitly expressed by the extremist Minister Smotrich, the Minister of Finance, in an interview with the Hebrew Channel 12, saying: “From now on, do not reduce nuclear weapons, mocking this government joke to deter the resistance, after Israel revealed that the missiles that hit Tel Aviv were of a modern type,” which confirms Resistance stock update.

long term policy

Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper says: “Israel, official and unofficial, is confused about the behavior of the Palestinian resistance, amid a search for answers to its disapproval of an immediate response and open scenarios, especially with regard to the position of Hamas.”

Amidst questions about the use of a new, unexpected and unaccounted-for method in Israel, which is exhausting it with silence and long breath, especially since tens of thousands and more Israelis in the south of the country are not working or learning for the second day in a row, in addition to the psychological pressures waiting for a reaction. from Gaza.

Perhaps this is what pushes the occupation leaders to repeat their threats of more assassinations and more killing, as Minister Israel Katz said to the Hebrew Radio, threatening to assassinate and target the leaders of the Palestinian resistance movement from Hamas.

Intelligence Minister Gila Gamliel expressed her concern about this and accused the resistance of trying to drag Israel into a long-term confrontation.

Amit Segal, a political analyst on the Hebrew Channel 12, ridiculed the operation of aggression against Gaza, which the Netanyahu government called “shield and arrow,” saying: “It is in fact an operation” ladder and tree, referring to it as a military adventure led by Netanyahu to prevent the disintegration of his ruling coalition, and the removal of the Minister of Security. Nationalist Itamar Ben Gvir on the tree after he froze his party’s participation in government meetings and in voting on its projects in the Knesset, in protest against what he described as the poor Israeli response to Gaza rockets.

David’s slingshot

Another strategy of the resistance that cannot be overlooked is the use of electronic attacks to disable the Israeli Iron Dome at the same time as the rockets were fired, prompting the occupation this time to use other more expensive anti-missile systems.

The entry of the “David’s Sling” system into service in the face of the resistance’s missiles, although this system is intended for high-altitude and ballistic missiles, is considered an Israeli admission of the failure of the Iron Dome system, and this is a victory for the resistance.

Gaza rockets forced Israel to use the David’s Sling system for the first time, and two Israeli military sources said: “Israel used this system to intercept the rockets of the Palestinian resistance from Gaza because of the great failure of the Iron Dome.”

David’s Sling is a system designed to shoot down rockets launched from 100 to 200 kilometers away, and is part of Israel’s missile shield that already includes the Iron Dome system to intercept short-range missiles and the Arrow-2 and Arrow-3 systems to intercept long-range missiles.

David’s slingshot

Israel used Iron Dome on a large scale to intercept rockets fired by the resistance in Gaza, and Iran’s missile threat was the catalyst for the development of Arrow missiles.

The David’s Sling was developed and manufactured by the Israeli state-owned Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Company in partnership with the American company Raytheon, and was also designed to intercept cruise missiles.
