World’s most elite fighters sent to Israel to hunt savage Hamas terrorists
Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu’s statement on Hamas war
The world’s most elite special forces are ready to be sent to Israel to locate hostages and hunt Hamas terrorists, with the US possibly preparing two forces that were dispatched to kill Osama Bin Laden.
US troops described as “door kickers” have been put on standby in an unnamed nearby European country, according to two senior military officials speaking to The Messenger.
There is currently no indication the US special forces would be sent to the country, according to the insiders, but they are just hours away by plane if they are needed.
The military officials did not confirm which units are being put on standby but said they came under the Joint Special Operations Command – whose two main counterterrorism units are the Army’s Delta Force and the Navy’s SEAL Team Six.
The US has already sent hostage negotiators to help the Israeli specialists with 20 Americans still missing in the country following the horrifying Hamas attacks, which have killed a total of 1,200 people so far.

US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said the country has “people on the ground” who will assist authorities in Israel with “intelligence and planning” for potential operations involving hostage rescue efforts.
These negotiators will work out of the US embassy in Tel Aviv and alongside a team that is already in place, according to The Messenger.
Austin said the Pentagon has a “liaison cell” in Israel working with special operations forces in the country, with the US also possessing the ability to “rapidly deploy other resources into the region.”
The US has moved quickly since the barbaric Hamas attacks over the weekend, with Joe Biden sending the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Gerald R. Ford and five guided-missile cruisers and destroyers.
Gen. Michael ‘Erik’ Kurilla, who oversees US Central Command said: “The arrival of these highly capable forces to the region is a strong signal of deterrence should any actor hostile to Israel consider trying to take advantage of this situation.”
Austin had said on Sunday the warships being deployed would carry US Air Force warplanes “to bolster regional deterrence efforts” – the biggest move of the conflict so far to dissuade the likes of Iran from becoming involved in the conflict.
A senior defense official also said the strike group can conduct “a full spectrum of missions, from intelligence collection, maritime dominance, to long-range strike, will ensure the United States is postured to respond to any contingencies and minimize the risk of a wider spread conflict that would threaten stability.”
The official said: “These posture increases were intended to serve as an unequivocal demonstration in deed and not only in words of US support for Israel’s defense and serve as a deterrent signal to Iran, Lebanese Hezbollah, and any other proxy across the region who might be considering exploiting the current situation to escalate the conflict.

“Those adversaries should think twice.”
On Tuesday, Biden vowed the United States would help Israel in delivering a “swift, decisive and overwhelming” response against Hamas terrorism.
He condemned the violent attacks by extremists on Israeli settlements while describing the loss of life as “heartbreaking” and reiterating that Hamas “does not represent” the overwhelming majority of Palestinians.
Biden told a White House briefing: “Like every nation in the world, Israel has the right to respond – indeed, has a duty to respond – to these vicious attacks.
“I just got off the phone with Prime Minister Netanyahu, I told him the United States…our response will be swift, decisive and overwhelming.
“We also discussed how democracies like the US and Israel are stronger and more secure when we act according to the rule of law. Terrorists purposefully target civilians, we uphold the laws of war – it matters, there’s a difference.”
