COMING CRISIS ALERT: Israeli full blown war with Gaza, and possibly Egypt, imminent - November 14, 2012

UPDATE: November 24, 2012

Ceasefire holding. Alert lifted. Will reinstate should conflict flare back up.

UPDATE: November 21, 2012

Ceasefire reached! While tenuous, the guns have silenced. We'll continue monitoring the situation over the next 48 hours and update / lift the alert when necessary.

UPDATE: November 20, 2012

A potential ceasefire has been reached between Israel and Hamas. Details of the ceasefire are emerging, and there is uncertainly regarding whether or not it will hold.

UPDATE: November 16, 2012

Israeli media has issued a statement telling citizens to prepare for a seven week war. Whether this means that the bombing campaign will last seven weeks, or that there will be a ground operation lasting seven weeks, remains uncertain. The Al Quds Brigade has captured Israeli communications equipment and has issued warnings to the IDF not to enter Gaza if they wish not to incur casualties. The IDF's beach landings using marines has been postponed, although there has been intermittent fighting between Palestinian resistance fighters and the IDF along the Gazan periphery. Information is also coming in that there exists a disagreement between the IDF and the Israeli government regarding a full blown invasion, explaining why operations are starting and stopping and seem generally disorganized aside from an incessant bombing campaign of Gazan cities. World media continues to avoid publishing the massive Gazan casualties being incurred as a result of Israeli airstrikes, and even alternative news outlets such as Drudge have been spotted failing in their journalistic duty to report both sides of the story. The CC is glad to carry that torch. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: November 16, 2012

While the mainstream media has decided not to report Israel's activities, or outright deny them, the CC can verify from multiple ground sources that Israel has entered into the Palestinian territories, both Gaza and the West Bank. However, it seems they have halted at the periphery for reasons unknown. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: November 15, 2012

Israeli troops and Palestinian fighters have begun to engage one another in the streets of Gaza as Israeli forces commence their invasion.

Israel and the Gaza strip have begun fierce exchanges of rocket, mortar, artillery fire and airstrikes, and Israeli troops have massed at the border in preparation for a ground invasion. Meanwhile, Egypt has hinted at its own involvement after condemning Israeli counter strikes against the Palestinian people.

Due to current tensions in the Middle East, a massive conflict could erupt at any time between the various factions. The possibility of Arab intervention against Israel exists, mainly due to an extended alliance between Hamas, Iran, and various Arab allies.

Hamas' unwillingness to cease harassment of Israeli's southern population via incessant bombardments, and Israel's disproportionate and body tallying responses guarantee the circuit of violence will not break any time soon. Where this conflict will end, and to what extent it will expand, remains unknown.

EMERGENCY INSTRUCTIONS:


1. If you currently reside in Israel, Lebanon, or Egypt, consider leaving. Today.

2. If you cannot leave, make sure you have gas masks, food, medicine, water, and a radio on hand to receive further instructions. Also make sure your bomb shelter, if you possess one, functions in a clean and ready manner.

3. If you live in Israel or any of the affected areas, consider taking footage (safely) and uploading it to Youtube, then sending the link to the Coming Crisis so we can provide on-the-ground updates of events.
