EU Forces Attack Tel Aviv
"City in flames"

Waves of EU bombers attacked Tel Aviv for a third consecutive day. Taking off from bases in Egypt, EU planes this morning bombed what were described by official sources as "strategic military targets". Reports from the Zionist entity suggest that Tel Aviv is a "city in flames". It is understood that many thousands of residents have now fled the city and are heading for the Negev desert. The loss of life has been described as "considerable".

All planes returned safely to their bases. Pilots from the Polish, British and German contingents took part in today's attack.

The president of the EU has sent the following message to the pilots involved in the raids: "You have performed a great service for all humanity. Until the world has rid itself of the great evil that is Zionism none of us can rest. Our grandparents sacrificed much to defeat the Nazi war machine. It has now fallen on your shoulders to rescue the world once again. I know you will not let us down. God bless you all."
