Gaza violence continues, 3 teenagers were planting bombs, says Israel


According to several news reports, three teenagers were killed after the attack by the Israeli military on the Gaza border. The bodies of the three dead Palestinians were admitted to the Nasser hospital in the city of Khan-Yunis. Two of them are 13 years old, the third is 14, the teenagers were killed in a shelling on the eastern border. The Israeli military said it targeted suspected militants who approached the border fence and “were apparently involved in placing” a bomb next to it. “Three Palestinians approached the security fence in the southern Gaza Strip, attempted to damage it and were apparently involved in placing an improvised explosive device (IED) adjacent to it,” the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) said.  Palestinian political factions denied that the boys were planting explosives and said they were playing in an area close to their homes in southern Gaza.   Islamic Jihad, the second largest militant group in Gaza after Hamas, promised revenge for the teenagers’ deaths, saying it would “respond to this crime in a way that suits its magnitude”.  Islamic Jihad fired dozens of rockets into Israel on Friday night and Saturday morning, leading to a wave of Israeli airstrikes in Gaza in response.   Violence in Gaza has flared and then calmed repeatedly in recent months, neither going completely quiet nor sparking a full-scale war.

Since May 2018,  anti-Israeli speeches are taking place in the Gaza Strip against the background of the transfer of the US Embassy to Jerusalem, which Israel considers its undivided capital. At the same time, Palestine claims the eastern part of the city. Thousands of Arabs come to protest. In similar clashes, according to the Gaza Health Ministry, about 190 people died, over 19 thousand were injured.


Though the Palestinians don’t have an army, rockets are regularly fired from Gaza into Israel. Israelis living in border towns are used to having to take shelter and adapting their lives to deal with the rockets. Residents of the Gaza Strip have fallen into a classic historical dead end, the exit from which will be associated with bloodshed. Both sides maintain their story and the situation remains stagnant. Human rights groups have accused Israeli troops of using excessive force. Israel has said they have only opened fire in self-defense or on people trying to infiltrate its territory under the cover of the protests. Palestinians have also launched kites and balloons carrying containers of burning fuel and explosive devices over the border, sparking fires in Israel that have reportedly burned more than 2,800 hectares (6,900 acres) of forest and farmland.


There is no doubt that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the knottiest border problem of all. This is the most contentious border in the world with competing for political/cultural factions with distinct territorial visions for the place. To complicate matters, other countries (most notably the United States and European countries siding with Israel and Arab states with other Muslim-majority countries supporting Palestine) are involved in the region, making this the most contentious border in the world. The answer to this most complex border security problem is in part addressed by iCognative. It is a technology designed to offer a powerful specific screening solution for the detection of concealed information of suspected individuals. Specific screening tests through

iCognative technology provided only by Brainwave Science is uniquely suited for agencies looking to enhance existing intelligence collection disciplines such as human intelligence, signals intelligence, imagery intelligence, and open-source intelligence. It can help border authorities successfully screen and investigate suspects, witnesses and all other connected people to the case. In case with the dead Palestinian boys, a 45 minutes iCognative test can be conducted on the witnesses, who could have potentially seen those boys near the fence at the time they were killed in addition to any other suspects or witnesses that might have been interviewed by law enforcement agencies such as IDF.

In the case of death of three Palestinian boys whom Israel has accused of planting bombs near the border, law enforcement agents can utilize investigation details such as bomb material discovered near the fence, potential CCTV footage of the boys, identity and known intelligence about these boys, witness testimonies of officers on duty at the border along with victim family claims etc., is uploaded to conduct a iCognative test on all persons of interest, suspects as well as witnesses as the test supports human rights and is non-invasive. With over 99% accuracy the authorities can determine what the real problem is here and whether the boys killed were planting bombs on the fence or were they boys playing who were mistaken as terrorists? The boys have been killed but moving forward this kind of situations can be avoided by utilization of iCognative by Israeli Defense Security and Border Security Forces. iCognative technology is the only technology that is capable of delivery of peace with the elimination of torture that human rights organizations have severely criticized for both sides involved in the conflict.

iCognative and its infallible science supporting it are at the threshold of revolutionizing intelligence disciplines and specific screening methods so prevalent to security today.
