At around 1:00 AM, two of the numerous rockets launched at Israel overnight hit buildings in Sderot. A third rocket from that round hit outside the city.

Those rockets that hit Sderot knocked out the electricity on a few city blocks, as well as damaging cars and buildings.

A family of four was saved when they entered the bomb shelter after the siren went off, and stayed there until after the rocket crashed into their building.

No one was killed in the attacks.

A few more rockets hit open areas nearby.

That was in addition to the dozens of rockets launched on Wednesday at Israel’s south.

The IDF spokesperson said that Israel retaliated against the rocket attacks, with at least 15 strikes at Hamas terror targets, including rocket launchers.

Despite those IDF strikes, Gaza still has electricity.

Iron Dome intercepted 2 rockets, one over Netivot, and the near Ashkelon.

  1. Nice shot!!!! Now maybe the IDF will do some serious damage to the “Human Animals” that attacks Israel daily. The IDF has to hold some responsibility for the constant attacks since they refuse to eradicate the Gaza Strip

  2. Stop supplying Gaza with humanitarian aid and electricity because the terrorists are NOT human!

  3. Lisa Kamins says:

    turn off the electricity to Gaza and while turning that off, turn off their water too, after all why should we supply electricity and water to people who are either terrorists or support them and work to murder us all.

  6. Thank you governement of Israel you WIIL GUID. US WERE TO GO

  7. Lisa Kamins says:

    hmmm… well what you are saying that incitement to murder, murder and all rockets directed at civilian populations that also maim and kill innocents are fair game and should go unpunished, you do not recognize that this is war. all of Israel is fail game to these terrorist. and Israel provides these very same terrorists with water and electricity. I think if you lived in Sderot for a month or so, or if your children were kidnapped and murdered while the world sat quietly by saying nothing, you would not think so. here is a little read for you to do, it might just enlighten you, if you are willing to remove the dark glasses from your eyes: http://pamelageller.com/

  8. I should blow up the local utility and then complain that they keep my power on. Would that work for me?

  11. Marcy Pollak says:

    Cut their electricity. They don’t pay for it anyway!

  12. Alice Darter says:

    How do you fight back when you are willing to live peaceably with your ‘enemy’ but your enemy will stop at nothing less than your total destruction?

  13. Israel needs to just finish it…..

  14. 'Gaza still has electricity.' Fix this now; immediately and permanently cut off all utilities, including desalinated water. Disconnect all power lines and assorted pipes leading into Gaza. It appears that actual war has been declared on Israel, so…………….
