Rockets Fired At Tel Aviv Area For First Time Since Gulf War


rocket-tel-avivPalestinian jihadist terrorists barraged Israel with nearly 150 rockets today, killing three people as Israel pressed a punishing campaign of airstrikes on militant targets across the Gaza Strip. Three rockets struck the Tel Aviv area for the first time since the Gulf War, and air raid sirens blared in the city as night fell.

The fighting, which has also killed 15 Palestinians in two days, showed no signs of slowing after dark. The attacks in the Tel Aviv area, some of the deepest rocket strikes on record, raised the likelihood of an even tougher Israeli response. Gaza terrorists launched the rocket barrage in retaliation for Israel’s killing of the Hamas military chief terrorist in an airstrike on Gaza Wednesday.

Israeli Channel 2 TV showed panicked Tel Aviv residents running for cover and lying down on the ground after the air-raid sirens began sounding.

Earlier in the day, a third rocket landed in an open area of Rishon Lezion, on Tel Aviv’s southern outskirts.

Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu said the IDF is  prepared for a “significant widening” of its Gaza offensive. “No government would tolerate a situation where nearly a fifth of its people live under a constant barrage of rockets and missile fire, and Israel will not tolerate this situation,” he said. “This is why my government has instructed the Israeli Defense Forces to conduct surgical strikes against the terrorist infrastructure in Gaza. And this is why Israel will continue to take whatever action is necessary to defend our people.”
