Gaza terrorists fire 70 rockets and mortar shells at Israel

May 29, 2018



Print Email 13 Comments

Today’s barrage of mortar shells, the largest since Operation Protective Edge in 2014, have been followed by additional volleys, reportedly 70 fired so far.

By: World Israel News Staff

Three southern Israeli civilians were lightly injured from shrapnel Tuesday morning. Authorities told residents to remain within 15 seconds of bomb shelters as Islamist terrorists based in Hamas-controlled Gaza continued to shoot dozens of rockets and mortar shells at Jewish communities in the south throughout the day.

Bomb sirens went off throughout the afternoon in a number of areas in the south, including Ashkelon, Ofakim, Sderot and the Eshkol region as Israel’s air force pounded the Islamic Jihad and Hamas in Gaza.

Channel 2 reported that rockets fired from the Gaza Strip penetrated 25 kilometers inside Israeli territory for the first time since the 2014 war with Hamas.

The report says some projectiles reached Ofakim, a city 20 kilometers west of Beersheba.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman called a “special situational assessment” at Tel Aviv headquarters with IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot and other senior figures from Israel’s security services, his office said.

In a tweet, Liberman confirmed the IDF struck a tunnel as well as “terror targets” in a “massive and strong” retaliatory attack in Gaza earlier in the day.

The IDF said the projectiles fired at Israel early in the afternoon were made in Iran.

“The Palestinian Islamic Jihad is a terrorist organization rooted in Iranian ideology,” the IDF spokesperson said in a statement. “Today, they used Iranian-made weapons.”

Incoming rocket alert sirens were heard in the southern Israeli communities of Kibbutz Holit, Nir Yitzhak and Sufa.

Iron Dome reportedly shot down dozens of rockets and mortar shells.



Emotional toll on residents
Adele Raemer, a resident of Kibbutz Nirim, which is located near the border with Gaza Strip, said that she and her neighbors are being told to stay near a bomb shelter.

“Childrens’ afternoon activities have been cancelled,” Raemer said, “I was supposed to drive 20 km south for a rehearsal, but have cancelled that.

“Earlier today the IDF destroyed an attack tunnel in the southern region, near Egypt. I’m just happy to stay close to home for now, because I sense that things are going to get worse before they get better.”

United Hatzalah, a rapid response first-aid organization, said that its Psychotrauma and Crisis Response Unit volunteers have treated 10 people so far in various communities in the Gaza periphery who have suffered emotional shock due to the barrage of rockets being shot from the Gaza Strip and the resulting Iron Dome interceptions.

It is time to eradicate Hamas and reclaim Gaza under Israeli rule. Enough is enough already.

Gaza can be pacified using Sharon's method; The system is as follow ; After Oslo Agreement , the Arabs attacks resulted in 2,000 Jewish casualties in Israel. Sharon than attacked and took over Judea and Samaria . He pacified it by dividing the area into 3 ; Area A, B and C..

A similar strategy will work in Gaza and Israel can divide into three areas as follow:

Area A: to include cities like Gaza City and Raffia, to be controlled by
 Arabs. Israeli Army would have the freedom to enter if necessary to arrest 
terrorist. (Only Arabs to reside there-no access to Jews).

Area B: The Northern 
parts of Gaza, other than the large cities, will be monitored by joint Arab and
Israeli forces. (Only Arabs will reside in those areas).

Area C: Philadelphi corridor
(along the Egyptian border) of 5 kilometers to revert to Jewish ownership and control- (Only Jews to have
 access and residential rights.) The expelled Jews from Gaza by Sharon; will welcome 
to their return to their homes in Gush Katif.

I think - It is time to set up a humanitarian coalition of Egypt and Israel and eliminate Hamas and other terror groups, take over Gaza and improve the lives of the people.

Its time to bomb non stop the rocket launching sites in gaza ,possibly time to retake it while the present day occupants go wherever, back thru Egypt,Jordan but not to Israel. Israel in my opinion looking from 20/ 20 hindsight should have never given gaza up,when has it worked / been peaceful ?

Isn't there good reason to take out the nasty leaders there in the vile hamass camp? Every person that matters knows Israel would be giving the pathetic people there a good deal if they did.

“The Palestinian Islamic Jihad is a terrorist
organization rooted in Iranian ideology,” the IDF spokesperson said in a
statement. “Today, they used Iranian-made weapons.”

Copy some of those weapons, Israel, and put Iranian markings on them. Then fire them all over Gaza, targeting everything. Claim that Hamas screwed up and killed their own people. Plausible deniability at its best.

Shalom

Not enough of a response from Israel. Take off the gloves, take out all infrastructure in Gaza, no holds barred. Shut down all crossings from Israel into Gaza. Turn off all fuel, water and electricity. We are at war - a war the terrorists insist upon.

Shalom
