rockets-israelAccording to Israeli officials, 12 rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip into Israel a mere hour after a ceasefire was announced.

The truce went into effect 9 p.m. after eight days of violence that has left five Israelis dead near the Gaza Strip.

The rockets reportedly landed in open areas, causing no damage and, according to an Israeli military spokesman, some were intercepted by an anti-missile system. It is still unclear what the attack means for the ceasefire.

  1. It is still unclear what the attack means?It means that the chayos do what they want to do, and only Israel keeps its part of the deal; as usual. I tell you, obliterate the infestation; there is no other way.

  2. Did anyone believe for one second they will keep their word? It never happened and never will. The terrorists never respected a single agreement. They have one goal – R”l – and they will use any tactic – mostly dishonest, dirty and cruel ones to achieve their imaginary goal. Even if they’ll cease the fire – it will be only for a short while just for the sake of reorganizing and rearming. I think that a state’s heads who – unfortunately – trust America, Europe but not H’ cannot deal with the situation. The government’s last move was an outright failure by all counts. They did not finish off the terrorists – which means they’ll be fully back in business very soon, they lost the citizens trust, the army suffered a big blow to its deterrence image, the recognition of these blood-thirsty animals as a valid entity and more. A big huge fiasco. We cannot trust any government, we cannot trust any army – even the so called The best army in the world.

    Israel: ‘Missile Fire On Tel Aviv Will Unleash Unprecedented Israeli Response’
    Friday August 3, 2012 11:28 AM – 6 Comments

    The real threat facing Israel is not long-range missiles, but small rockets, former Military Intelligence chief Maj. Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, who heads the Institute for National Security Studies, said on Thursday at a conference on “Israel’s Homefront Preparedness.”

    “Israel is not threatened by 200,000 missiles, as previously claimed. It is under threat of perhaps 1,000 effective missiles and another 9,000 long-range rockets, but the rest of the 190,000 rockets in the region are inaccurate and short-range,” said Yadlin, who served as the IDF’s chief of Military Intelligence from 2006-2010. “Let’s put the threat into perspective, and stop talking about missiles and start talking about rockets.”

    “Worrying over 200,000 missiles is not serious, it is not professional, and we will be putting our resources in the wrong places,” he added.

    Yadlin, who was also a former deputy commander of the Israel Air Force, has logged about 5,000 flight hours and flew more than 250 combat missions behind enemy lines. He participated in the 1973 Yom Kippur War and in the bombing of the Osirak nuclear reactor in Iraq in 1981.

    Commenting on possible future confrontations with Israel’s enemies, Yadlin admitted that missiles would strike the Gush Dan (central Israel) area. “A few more [would strike] than the number that hit in 1991 [during the Gulf War] – but today we have the Arrow [anti-missile interception system], better intelligence and a better Air Force. A large number of the rockets will be stopped, but some of them will indeed hit Gush Dan and for this we have to be prepared.”

    “When missiles start hitting Tel Aviv – and this will happen – and people will be killed, Israel’s legitimacy to take action will drastically increase and our ability to do things that we have not done until today will be much greater,” Yadlin added.

    In terms of solutions, Yadlin highlighted several factors, among them a possible Israeli offensive. “The vision for those in charge of Israel’s defense systems should be to launch a flyover modeled after the “Moked” operation – to take away from the enemy this exact asset [missiles] against which we are trying to defend ourselves. The combination of precise intelligence and precise weaponry, which we possess and they don’t, can enable us to eliminate most of our enemy’s advantages.”

    The Moked operation (Operation Focus), was an Israeli large-scale, surprise air strike that signalled the opening of the Six-Day War. As part of the operation, nearly 200 jets took off from Israel in a massive air strike against Egypt’s airfields. During the operation, the majority of the Egyptian, Jordanian and Syrian Air Forces were destroyed.

    Yaldin is an IDIOT!!!!!!

    I would call him worse, i.e. EVIL!!!!!

    Since when do we need to wait for people to get KILLED to act???

    Shooting rockets is an act of war “especially” when its shot in civilian areas. The government has the obligation to protect it’s citizens using everything and ANYTHING to crush the enemy.

    Whoever heard of the word “disproportional retaliation” used when fighting a war? this is something made up by the anti Semitic world to hold Israel to some stupid standard.

  5. Why am I not shocked? If Hamas doesn’t keep to their part of the deal why should Israel either? The IDF should continue killing the leaders. I know this is crazy, but maybe here we should raise whatever money America gives Israel, on condition that they become pro-chareidim, and then the Israeli army doesn’t need to listen to Hussein Osama, because the American government isn’t giving them money.

  6. Its very obvious that the agreement jst fo this mean time,u know what despite devil being the all time loser he keeps on fighting the losing battle.
