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.
