IDF Bombs Lebanon Target In Retaliation For Rocket Attack


beirut-lebanon-hitIsrael’s Air Force bombed a terror target in Lebanon early this morning in retaliation for a cross-border rocket salvo on Thursday, the IDF spokesman said. The aircraft carried out a direct hit.

The terror site bombed was near Na’ameh, between Beirut and Sidon.

“Israel will not tolerate terrorist aggression originating from Lebanese territory,” military spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner said in a statement announcing Friday’s air strike.

Military sources said that the target was a group of tunnels that may have served as rocket launching pads but that do not belong to Hezbollah.

On Thursday, IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz held a situation assessment meeting with top military officers following the rocket fire from Lebanon. It is estimated that global jihad terrorists fired the rockets, but the army is pointing a finger at Lebanon.

On Thursday afternoon, two air raid sirens sounded in the western Galilee after four katyusha rockets were fired at Israel from Lebanon. Sirens sounded, among other places, in Nahariya and Akko where alarms were not heard since the Second Lebanon War.

Two rockets exploded in residential areas and a recently-deployed Iron Dome battery intercepted at least one rocket. Three people suffered from shock. One 14-year-old girl sustained a light head wound from falling while running for shelter.

Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu addressed rocket fire from Lebanon in the direction of Israel’s Western Galilee, saying “We are working on all fronts,” the prime minister added; “in the north and in the south, so as to protect the citizens of Israel from these attacks.”

Netanyahu stressed that the State was “utilizing various means, in both defense and prevention, and acting responsibly. Our policy is clear – to defend as well as to thwart. Anyone who harms us should know and anyone who tries to harm us should know we will harm them back.”

  1. Hello Monkey Moon!
    Did you re-close your eyes? Are you blind to notice these acts of teror and potential killing? Did you only notice in your anti-semitic UN that Isreal gets the raw deal time snd again? No White House response, no UN denouncement and you turned over and went back to sleep. And this is the non-response every other time – the other times Israel gets walloped for protecting its citizens and borders from these vicious killers!

    “If we’ll live Al Kiddush Hashem We won’t have to die Al Kiddush Hashem”

    I am still very miserable, even though I seem relatively happy. The truth is revealing
    itself at a fast and furious pace, and still people are not reacting. Many are, but most

    The whole world is being lied to in an unbelievably enormous way, and no one or very few are paying any attention. There is no reaction. Either people are so confused by it all that they rather not even think of it, or they’re just plain stupid.

    Another reason for ignoring the truth is that we’re so afraid to lose our relative
    security, financial security etc., even though so many people already do not have
    that also.

    It’s actually mind boggling how far lies have gone, how a relatively small group of
    sadistic people could fool the entire world, with the exception of a very small minority that is for the most part cut off from the Klal and is close to the truth, and is trying very hard to make people realize what is happening.

    My fellow Jews will say to me, ”You must trust Hashem. You don’t have to get into all the politics about everything that is happening. Just trust Hashem”. However when they say that to me, my heart shrinks and my stomach is attacked by terrible pains. What they are really saying to me, is not that they advocate really trusting Hashem, they are only words that really indicate that they want me to shut up, and not disturb their serenity

    Well, I can NOT shut up, and first and foremost we must trust Hashem. However,Hashem made the world the way it is. Hashem is revealing all the Sheker, all the lies. Hashem is showing us what evil means.

    If we ignore this then we’re going against Hashem’s will.Hashem wants us to do Teshuva. Therefore He is spreading out before us,before
    our eyes the filth and disgusting happenings in the world. The murder, the
    degeneracy that has gone way out of anything even close to normal. He’s showing it all to us. If we ignore that it exists, then we are doing something very wrong, and we
    can’t do Teshuva while we’re so complacent and refusing to see the truth.

    Anyone that sees the truth and ignores it, and goes back to his silly way of life, is doing a big Aveirah.
    Every Yid that sees that truth so clearly and chooses to ignore it because doing Teshuva is not exactly what he had in mind right now, then that Jew is in very bad shape. I know that most of my fellow Frum Jews, are ignoring the truth because they don’t want to suffer. They are afraid to know that we’re coming to the
    end. They are used to this Gashmiusdik life, and they don’t want it to change, even
    though it’s already changed. But in their stubbornness to hold on anyway to their false dreams, to their false goals, they’re willing to ignore the fact that our very livesare being threatened. Not only our lives but also our children’s lives, SheLo Naida.

    Still, yes, we have to come back to Hashem and do complete Teshuva, but complete Teshuva.

    We must break away from the lie which is the Gashmius, and
    come to the truth, which means to sacrifice ourselves for our Yiddishkeit. To sacrifice our comfort and our way of life that is tainted already, and only come close to Hashem. To live Al Kiddush Hashem. If we’ll live Al Kiddush Hashem, Bezras Hashem, we won’t have to die Al Kiddush Hashem
