Nadene GoldfootToday since midnight, southern Israel was hit by 18 rockets by Hamas's Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades in revenge, they say, after a retaliatory raid by Israel got one of their men, Suleiman Kamel al-Qara, in an IAF air raid. Hamas said they aimed at 5 military locations in southern Israel. It just happens that these 5 locations are civilian communities so their information is wrong. They always manage to hit civilian areas.
The Hamas terrorists even posted a poorly-made video showing them launching 9 rockets early in the morning.
Israel had carried out two late-night air strikes which according to Arab sources, did not cause any injuries.
Southern Israel has been hit with a barrage of 80 missiles, then 60 missiles, and right now the count is at 18 for today. All this comes about since Qatar's Emir visited them promising more money for various enterprises. I doubt if any of it will ever be used for a new hospital.
Israel needs more bomb shelters. United With Israel tells us that :
FROM ISRAEL: NEARLY 100 ROCKETS WERE FIRED INTO ISRAEL LAST WEEK. GRAD
ROCKETS FROM GAZA EXPLODING IN BEERSHEBA... SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED. |
The residents of southern Israel - men, women and children have been traumatized by the terror of ongoing rocket attacks. With only 15 seconds to find cover, lives are in jeopardy. Nearly 1 million residents are within striking range of missles from Gaza. There is an immediate need to protect the people of Israel. Portable shelters can be moved to where they are needed most.
Over 12,000 Kassam Rockets have been fired into southern Israel in the last 10 years, deliberately targeting Israeli civilians, causing chaos, destruction and death. An entire generation of children has been raised to live in fear of rocket attacks. Israeli cities such as Sderot, Ashkelon and Beersheba continue to be in real danger. As Hamas' Kassam Rocket stockpiles continue to increase, this is a war on terror that needs your support. More shelters are needed today!
