Morning Rocket Attack On Eshkol Region

Not that anyone is paying attention, but this morning a rocket was fired on the Eshkol Region, yet another rocket attack from Gaza.

Around 10 this morning (Tuesday), Ynet posted this newsflash:

A rocket was fired at the Eshkol Regional Council. The rocket exploded in an open area and no injuries or damage were reported.

We have not seen this Gazan-sourced rocket attack confirmed elsewhere but it’s a reliable source and such attacks have become a daily event – and often many times in a day. And GANSO has just posted a note confirming it too:

06 NOV, 1045hrs: Isr. and Pal. media report that 1 HMR was fired toward the Green Line. No injuries reported. Updates to follow as received.

(“HMR” is the EU-funded humanitarian group’s quaint and misleading way of referring to deadly Qassam rockets. Their use of the term is an ongoing, but mostly un-noticed, disgrace.)

From a scan of the news reports hitting the web in the past hour, the only significant coverage relating to Gaza refers to reptiles - two kinds of them:

Police in the Gaza Strip on Monday captured a crocodile that roamed the sewerage system of a town in the north of the enclave, the Palestinian territory’s Hamas rulers said. [Source]

The media and the Palestinian Arabs being what they are, it isn’t a news story unless Israel can be kicked. So the Naharnet report concludes by blaming you-know-who for the crocodile infestation:

Gaza’s water sewerage system has deteriorated over the years, notably because of the Israeli blockade on the Palestinian territory and its devastating 22-day war on militant rocket fire launched in December 2008.

Like the fighter pilot’s letter, I wonder if certain units are simply too sensitive to allow certain leftwingers to serve in, and to entrust in their hands the security of our country and our lives.

There is only one thing more tragic than experiencing a terror attack, and that is allowing those who attacked you to do it again!

Smuggling Gazans into Europe is cheaper than fighting with Gaza, and then rebuilding all the destruction.
