#8 and more from Debka:
It may be said that Israel's Gaza operation did in fact start on Oct. 24 in Sudan with the attack on the Yarmouk complex manufacturing Iranian missiles near Khartoum. Former Military Intelligence chief Amos Yadlin Wednesday confirmed debkafile's exclusive report that the factory had housed the emergency reserve stocks of the Palestinian Hamas and Jihad Islami in the Gaza Strip.
Its destruction contributed to their loss of infrastructure.
The tough part of the Israeli operation to eliminate the terrorist war peril hovering over southern Israel from the Gaza Strip is still to come. For now, Hamas is at a loss for a strategic answer to the IDF offensive -- unless one is provided by Tehran or Hizballah coming to its rescue.

Hackers have attacked and taken down numerous Israeli websites since yesterday. According to the Express Tribune:
The group managed to deface a top Israeli security and surveillance website http://falcon-s.co.il. The account @Op_Israel tweeted:
Ă˘€śHacked http://falcon-s.co.il | Top Israel Security & Surveillance | Stop bombing #Gaza#OpIsrael#GazaUnderAttack#AnonymousĂ˘€ť
In its second salvo, it managed to take down the website of the Israel Ministry of Defense, IDF.il. @AnonymousPress tweeted:
Another Twitter account linked to the group tweeted that defacing or taking down websites was not a priority for the group, rather it was ensuring that Palestinians on the ground had access to the Internet, cut off by Israel, so that communications with aid providers and rest of the world may continue unhampered.
Ă˘€śTaking down websites is not a priority at the moment. Ensuring internet access to get information out of Gaza is the #1 priority.Ă˘€ť
Multiple accounts linked to the group or supporting the group tweeted online tutorials on how to stay connected to the internet when the government shuts down Internet service providers.
