Three Hurt, Houses Hit in Massive Rocket Barrage on Southern Israel


israel-rocketOvernight and this morning, IAF aircraft hit Gaza three times, targeting launching squads in the northern Gaza Strip firing rockets towards southern Israel. The rockets came in three rounds.

“The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians, and will operate against anyone who uses terror against the State of Israel,” the IDF said in a statement. “The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.”

During the last barrage, Hamas and other terrorist groups slammed southern Israel with over two dozen rockets, wounding three people and hitting at least three homes. The Iron Dome system operated shortly after 7 a.m. to knock down rockets headed towards the port city of Ashkelon.

The latest attacks, reported Arutz Sheva, came less than a day after the visiting emir of oil-rich Qatar incited Gaza residents by saying during his visit, “There is no clear strategy of resistance and liberation” in the absence of peace talks, which both Hamas and its rival faction Fatah have boycotted.

The rocket attacks are a continuation of what seems to a deterioration of security  in southern Israel. An IDF officer was hurt yesterday morning when a device blew up during an IDF exercise in the Gaza border area. The officer is in very serious condition at Soroka Medical Center in Be’er Sheva. His life is said to be in danger.

  1. What is the soldiers name for Tehillim? How come we won’t hear a single word from Hillary Clinton? I thought the Obama administration is in love with the Israely people? He just said in the last debate how bad he felt for the citizens of Sderot! What a fraud this Democrat Party is!

  2. Any of you still voting for Barack Hussein Obama??? If you are, then a refuah sheleimah to you.
    My tefilos for all those that have been hurt. May HKBH have rachmonos.
