For the past few months Hamas has been trying to provoke Israel to start a war to be able to direct all the frustrations of their residents from them unto Israel.
Hamas started by inciting its own people in the summer to break through the security fence and try to invade Israel while the IDF shot off their knee caps to avoid killing people.
Throughout the army the best tactic has always been to shoot people in the legs that are involved in a riot.
Instead of killing someone and making that person into a martyr we show them the consequences of rioting will lead to that person being in a wheel chair for a very long time has the desired effect of stopping future rioting and no one is killed.
Anyways Hamas’ effort to start a war by having thousands of people riot on the border fence did not have the desired effect to start a war.
Again there was great financial loss to the farmers but, not enough for the Israeli public to demand a full scale war to finally oust Hamas from power.
The last time Hamas started a war was during Operation Protective Edge when Hamas kidnapped and murdered three Israeli teens and started a barge of missile attacks on Israel.
The latest thing Hamas has done is the drive by shooting in the bus station of Ofra where hitchhikers were gunned down by a team of Hamas operatives.
One of the victims was a young pregnant woman who had to give emergency birth to the child which died a few days later that marked celebrations in the streets for Palestinians to know they had just murdered a Jewish baby.
Israel has still refused to start a war with Hamas and has continually looked to the alternative option which is to just have limited air strikes and have put pressure on the PA to crack down on Hamas.
Just last week a Hamas protest in Hebron was broken up by the PA security officials beating up protesters with batons regardless of gender or age.
Hamas will definitely either keep trying to provoke Israel into another war or turn to its own population and start killing its own citizens to provoke their own citizens against each other to take away the blame for the deteriorating situation that exists in Gaza
