VFI News Hamas Official Vows to Repeat Israel Attacks Until Its Destruction, Hezbollah Sends Explosives to Attack Israel

The Kibbutz Be'eri Massacre | Babies Decapitated & Families Slaughtered in their Homes | VFI News

Dear readers, after almost one month into the war, we continue to pray for every Israeli, Jew, and innocent civilian who has been affected by it. We know that the Lord, our God has heard all of our prayers, and will soon deliver a resolution and take care of the afflicted communities. We also pray for the release of all the hostages and protect our soldiers who are sacrificing themselves for our people.

Witness the aftermath of the slaughter which took place on October 7th 2023 in Kibbutz Be'eri. A small peace-loving kibbutz which was overrun by murderous barbaric Hamas terrorists.

At least 130 innocent civilians were butchered in their homes, babies decapitated, and entire families burned alive. This was the face of evil.




Israel, Hezbollah Exchange Fire in North, IDF 'Ready' for Lebanon Fire

Lebanon's Hezbollah said it had used two drones packed with explosives to attack an Israeli army command position in the disputed Shebaa Farms area at the Lebanese-Israeli border on Thursday, November 2.

In a statement, the Iran-backed group said the drones were filled with “a large quantity of explosives” and had hit their targets.

In response, the IDF struck several Hezbollah terror targets in southern Lebanon. Israel targeted several Hezbollah terrorist infrastructures along the border, killing many terrorists, the IDF said. The Israeli Air Force, as well as artillery forces, were placed on high alert to respond immediately to any Hezbollah attacks from inside Lebanon.

The IDF said it is conducting defensive operations such as ambushes and patrols along the northern border fence, in a bid to deter further escalations from Lebanon.

Israeli forces are also carrying out intense training drills to increase preparedness for broad operational plans that “can be activated at any time,” the military noted. The IDF warned that it is ready for the “immediate execution” of said plans. (JPost / VFI News)

Hamas Official Promises: 'We'll Repeat October 7 Massacre Until Israel Is Annihilated'

A spokesman for Hamas has promised that the terror organization will repeat the October 7 massacre until Israel ceases to exist. In a video published on X (formerly Twitter) Hamas' Ghazi Hamad says, “We will repeat the October 7 attack time and again until Israel is annihilated.” He also claimed, “We are victims - everything we do is justified.”

Responding to Hamad, Yossi Zilberman, Deputy Spokesperson at Israel's Foreign Ministry, promised, “Israel will make sure that you and [your] friends won't be able to raise your bloody head ever again.” Zilberman hashtagged his response, “#HamasislSIS.”

On October 24, Hamad also said in a Lebanese television interview that “the al-Aqsa Flood is just the first time and there will be a second, a third, a fourth because we have the determination, the resolve, and the capabilities to fight.”

“We are called a nation of martyrs and are proud to sacrifice martyrs,” Hamad said. “Israel is a country that has no place on our land. We must remove that country because it constitutes a security, military and political catastrophe to the Arab and Islamic nations, and must be finished.”

“It is Israel, not us. We are the victims of the occupation. Therefore, nobody should blame us for the things we do. On October 7, October 10, October 1,000,000 — everything we do is justified,” he added.

According to the Gaza Health Ministry, almost 8,800 Palestinians have been killed since the war broke out, including 3,648 children. The ministry is run by Hamas, which has been accused by the US of inflating the death toll. (INN / VFI News)

“God, we ask that You will bring this war to an end and that You protect all civilians residing in Israel. We offer our heartfelt condolences to every family that has mourned the loss of an innocent life and we ask that You comfort these people and bring them peace. We hope that all hostilities will soon stop and that the terrorists who started the war will not materialize their heinous plans but will instead be swiftly apprehended and delivered to justice.”

Three Hamas Commanders Eliminated

IDF fighter jets, under the direction of military intelligence and the Shin Bet, have eliminated Muhammad A'sar, the head of Hamas' anti-tank force in the Gaza Strip. A'sar's forces have been heavily involved in the battles against Israel's security forces in northern Gaza in recent days.

In his position, A'sar was responsible for all anti-tank forces among the various Hamas brigades in Gaza and was involved in activating those forces when Hamas launched its war on Israel on October 7. At A'sar's direction, numerous attacks were committed against Israeli military forces and civilians using anti-tank missiles.

On Tuesday, October 31, IAF jets also eliminated Ibrahim Biari, the Commander of Hamas' Central Jabaliya Battalion. Biari was one of the leaders responsible for sending terrorist operatives from the “Nukhba” force to Israel to carry out the murderous terror attack on October 7.

Later, in an airstrike Thursday night, the commander of Hamas’s Sabra Tel al-Hawa Battalion, Mustafa Dalul, was killed, the IDF and Israel Security Service (Shin Bet) announced in a joint statement on Friday morning.

In addition, IDF fighter jets and artillery killed several Hamas terrorists who operated against the ground troops. During searches in the area of Beit Hanun in northern Gaza, IDF soldiers located weapons, intelligence material, an AK-47 rifle, submachine guns, magazines, grenades, explosive devices, RPG, communication means, and maps.

‘A Matter Of Good Versus Evil’; US Approves $14.3 Billion in Aid to Israel

The US House of Representatives on Thursday, November 2, approved a bill to provide $14.3 billion in aid to Israel amid the war against Hamas. The bill was approved by a majority of 226 to 196.

Speaking with American media, House Speaker Mike Johnson minced no words about the necessity for providing aid to Israel as it fights the terrorist group Hamas, saying, “This is a matter of good versus evil.”

The funding for the aid to Israel will be reallocated from money that was meant for the IRS in President Joe Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act. President Biden got $80 billion through the Inflation Reduction Act to expand the IRS. Roughly $21 billion was removed as part of a debt ceiling deal in June.

Johnson said before the vote, “I understand their priority is to bulk up the IRS. But I think if you put this to the American people and they weigh the two needs — I think they’re going to say standing with Israel and protecting the innocent over there is in our national interest.”

Rep. Chip Roy had also tweeted, “To truly #StandWithIsrael, we should swiftly PASS a stand-alone $14BB Israel-only support package… & PAY FOR that support to ensure our own fiscal & military strength… & STOP FUNDING the soulless globalists (UN, e.g.) supporting Hamas, Iran, & our other common enemies.” (DW / VFI News)

“God, we thank You for granting us powerful and generous allies who are willing to help us in our time of need. We are especially grateful for our American friends who provide substantial financial support and realize the urgency of the situation in our country. We are also thankful for everyone who speaks out against the terrorists who have caused so many deaths, pain, and suffering to our people.”

Exposed: How Hamas Steals Fuel from Gaza's Hospitals

The IDF has released a recording that shows how the terror organization takes gas from hospitals at the expense of the humanitarian needs of Gaza residents.

A conversation between a commander of Hamas’s Western Jabaliya Battalion and a Gazan resident, with the participation of the director of the Indonesian Hospital, was intercepted by Israeli Military Intelligence.

Despite the sensitive nature of this intelligence, the IDF says this intercept is being declassified to expose Hamas’s cynical exploitation of humanitarian resources in Gaza. “Hamas continues to exploit humanitarian infrastructure in the Gaza Strip to support its terrorist activities at the expense of the residents of Gaza,” it stated.

The video confirms that Hamas controls energy distribution in Gaza, prioritizing terrorist needs over the needs of their civilian population.

In this phone call, a Hamas commander repeatedly alludes to Hamas taking fuel from the hospital’s stocks, “working as a government for the sake of the country.” (INN / VFI News)

Russia Says Israel Has No Right to Self-Defense, Russia’s Wagner Group to Supply Hezbollah with Air Defense

Israel has no right to defend itself as it is an occupying power, Russia’s representative to the United Nations, Vasily Nebenzya, said at an emergency special session of the UN General Assembly on Wednesday, November 1.

“The only thing they can muster is continued pronouncements about Israel’s supposed right to self-defense, although as an occupying power, it does not have that power as confirmed by the advisory opinion of the International Court of Justice handed down in 2004,” said the Russian representative.

Despite stating that Israel does not have the right to defend itself, Nebenzya proceeded to state that Israel does have the right to “ensure its security” and “to fight terrorism.”

Further, US Intelligence has learned that the pro-Russian Wagner Mercenary Group may be supplying Hezbollah with an air-defense system, according to American media. US officials said that the White House has still yet to confirm if the SA-22 system, which uses anti-aircraft missiles and air defense guns to intercept aerial threats like aircraft and drones, will be used in Lebanon.

US officials are unable to confirm that the system has been sent yet but noted a positioned aircraft carrier used to deter Hezbollah in the Eastern Mediterranean from opening Israel’s northern front. Wagner has a presence in Syria, where many Hezbollah fighters have been found recently. (JPost / VFI News)

Israel Omitted from Online Maps in China Amid War with Hamas in Gaza

People in China are calling attention to the fact that the state of Israel is not present on online maps in China, a concerning development given China's historical obsession with map boundaries.

While it is unclear when Chinese companies like Baidu and Alibaba removed references to Israel, Chinese internet users began discussing the absence after Hamas' October 7 massacre.

Searching for “Israel” on Baidu's map portal prompts it to zoom in on the correct region, but Israel's name is absent from the map despite cities like Jerusalem being correctly marked. Israel's neighbors like Jordan, Lebanon, and Egypt also appear and are named accurately on the maps.

China's strong relationship with Iran may be a reason for Israel's absence from the map. China remains Iran's largest trading partner, and Iran is the prime source of funding for both Hamas and Hezbollah, the terror groups devoted to the destruction of Israel.

After the war began between Israel and Hamas, the Iranian regime has also threatened the Jewish communities in the country, a UK-based Persian language news outlet reported on Wednesday, November 1. Jews of Iranian origin in Israel are reporting that their relatives in Iran have left family WhatsApp groups and are even blocking the numbers of all their Israeli contacts.

The report adds that the local Jewish community organized pro-Gaza demonstrations in Teheran and Esfahan. The demonstrations were held under the headline: “Judaism has no connection with Zionism.” The demonstrators even waved banners in Hebrew condemning “Israel's crimes against the Palestinian people.” (FN / VFI News)

Thai Workers Face Dilemma: Stay and Endure War, or Flee But Lose Vital Wages

When Hamas terrorists rampaged through southern Israeli communities last month, many Thai migrant agricultural workers shared the fate of over a thousand Israelis who were slaughtered, kidnapped, or forced to run for their lives.

Since that day nearly a month ago, more than 7,000 of some 30,000 Thais working in Israel have returned home on government evacuation flights. But many others have decided to stay, choosing to take the risk for the opportunity to earn wages far higher than at home.

The number of Israelis and other civilians held hostage by Hamas is 241 according to IDF Spokesperson Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari, while Thailand reports that at least 23 of them are Thais. This is the largest single group of foreigners held by the terror group.

Many more may be missing and 32 have been reported killed. In a visceral illustration of the fate met by some, Israel’s UN envoy Gilad Erdan showed to the General Assembly a video of what he said was a Hamas terrorist decapitating a Thai agricultural worker.

Farm laborers from Thailand and elsewhere in Southeast Asia seek work in more developed countries where there is a shortage of semi-skilled labor — at wages considerably higher than what they earn at home. Thais remain the largest group of foreign agricultural laborers in Israel today. (TOI /VFI News)

“God, we offer our sincere condolences to all the foreign families mourning their dead amid the war in Israel. We extend our deepest sympathy to all those who suffer from the loss of their loved ones, and who worked hard in our country to provide a better life for their families. We pray that You comfort them and guide the rest of the foreign workers into making the best decision for their welfare and their families.”
