IDF soldiers are fighting in Gaza and Israelis are keeping a stiff uppper lip on the home front.

Six IDF soldiers were wounded Tuesday when Hamas terrorists shelled their position in a firefight that took place inside Gaza territory. Two are listed in fair condition, and four others were listed in good condition at Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon and Sheba Hospital at Tel Hashomer Medical Center in Tel Aviv.

Iron Dome anti-missile defenses were kept busy throughout the day and into the night as well, with missile fire blanketing the Jewish State.

Color Red rocket alert alarms blared through the coastal city of Ashkelon at 10 pm in a repeat performance of the race for the bomb shelters that had been taking place all night throughout the country.

Within 15 minutes, the alarms had spread to the Shfela region, the port city of Ashdod, where one missile was shot down high above the city by Iron Dome operators.

More Code Red alarms reverberated back to Ashkelon and then headed up the coast to the metro Tel Aviv area, where two M75 missiles were intercepted by the Iron Dome system over the city about three minutes later. One missile was intercepted over the city of Rishon Lezion.

Nine Grad Katyusha missiles were fired in a massive barrage at around 9:30 pm at the Negev city of Be’er Sheva. Four were intercepted by the Iron Dome system, indicating they were headed directly for populated areas.

Less than two hours earlier, Gaza terrorists had fired their longer-range M302 missiles at the Judean hills and Gush Etzion at about 8 pm, along with the Jerusalem suburb of Beit Shemesh. One of the missiles was shot down by the Iron Dome system over a neighborhood in Beit Shemesh. The Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist organization claimed responsibility for the attacks, admitting to “two missiles fired towards Jerusalem.”

At about 7 pm, four missiles were launched from Gaza and aimed at the Ashkelon coastal region. All four fell short, however, landing instead within the terrorist-run enclave instead.

It is not known how many Gaza civilians were killed and wounded due to the deadly determination of Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorists to continue their battle against Israeli civilians.

Throughout the day Tuesday, incessant rocket fire and mortar shell attacks were aimed at the 40-plus communities that line the Gaza border area. Residents of those communities have spent the last several weeks in their shelters most of the time and Tuesday was no exception. On Tuesday night, their sojourn in safe rooms continued.

    Fact, Palestinians are scattered from Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Algeria, Iraq, Kurdistan, Bahrain, Oman, Saudi Arabia and Sudan… Arafat was born in Egypt … why he came to Gaza?
    .
    Fact, Israeli Arabs are part of the Arab nation and have no own unique national characteristics. This approach also relies on cultural similarity that exists between the Palestinian residents of the West Bank and Gaza Arabs residents of the Kingdom of Transjordan and Arabs in Egypt and other Arab countries

    Fact, Azmi Bishara, a Palestinian, said: “There is no Palestinian nation, has only Arab nation”.

    Fact, Judaism existed over 5000 years more than all another Religion.

    Fact written in the Koran: “Moses said to his people, my people, remember the grace inclined you God establish you prophets and doing you kings, and gives you had not given anyone in the Universe. My people, go to the holy land that wrote you God. Sura 5 20-21 … it is written for you in black and white in the Qur’an then why are you denying the truth that Israel was our lot before the Palestinians came here?

    Fact, we Israelis want peace and condemn all attacks on civilians and certainly not deliberately kill women and children and even take care of them our hospitals, we can not say that on Palestinians were just trying to kill, stab, kidnap and bomb the Israeli

    Fact, Hamas has fired near Shifa Hospital and due to a failure of the missile launching Hamas killing its citizens, so who does not care about innocent people? Only Palestinians

    Fact, we left Gaza a few years ago and instead the Palestinians will use it to develop infrastructure, economic, cultural and education they choose to invest in any area of terrorism and money

    Fact, Hamas, and terrorist organizations are the real problem of the Arab world withdraws the Palestinians, we Israelis solution for better living side by side in mutual development, the real problem that swept through the brain to all the Arab world and

    Fact, in the Arab world were already in government coups in Egypt, Sudan, Libya and soon Syria, if not better then Gaza residents rise up against Hamas and we’ll be the first to help them

    Fact, those who support the kidnapping, murder, stone throwing, stabbings, throwing Molotov cocktails, burning flags and endless more terrible things are Palestinians and Arabs So who’s not human? Israelis want peace but we will not hesitate to eliminate anyone who Restoration us

    Fact, you are all hypocrites and deny one truth, before you speak against us I suggest you visit here for a few days and then see who is human and who behaves like an animal

    Fact, Over Tens of thousands of Syrians have been killed in recent months. But Jews Didn’t Do it, So the Media Doesn’t Care

    Fact written in the Koran: “If you have any doubt regarding what (the Quran) you received you can asked (the people of Israel) who received and studied the book before you.” Why do you hate us if you learn a lot from us?

    Fact, we Israelis want peace and live in peace side by side with Palestinians
    Fact, the Palestinians do not want it their goal to destroy us then their punishment to suffer and live like this

    Fact, the only reason there is a siege on Gaza is because if there is no control they are will put only weapons and not supplies and necessities to Gaza residents

    Fact, once you stop hating and talk peace He also will come but you do not want to listen and keep on sending abusive messages its will not help the residents of Gaza

    Fact, before you send a message with curses, give a real solution to the situation and not as ordinary messages like Israel is not our country, give a solution where we can live side by side in true peace as all Jews want

    Fact Hamas and other terrorist organizations they are the real enemies of the Arab world, Palestinians and Jews that prevent us from living in peace
