At least ten rockets were fired by Gaza terrorists at Israeli civilian targets over the Passover holiday.

One rocket caused damage to civilian infrastructure in Sderot, landing near a synagogue where hundreds of Israelis were praying at the time. The rocket exploded in the road outside, causing damage.

No casualties or injuries were reported in any of the attacks.

 In response, Israeli Air Force aircraft targeted two terrorist activity sites in southern Gaza and a third site in the central part of the region. An IDF spokesperson announced that direct hits were confirmed.

Despite this escalation in violence the traditional post-Passover ‘Maimouna’ festivities were held in the south on Tuesday night.

In a separate incident a bomb was detonated Monday evening against IDF soldiers patrolling the security fence in southern Gaza. Less than a day later, at 7:15 Tuesday morning, Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists fired an anti-tank missile at IDF soldiers patrolling along the security fence in the same area. The IDF spokesperson reported no damage or injuries and said soldiers returned fire with a mortar barrage aimed at the area from which the anti-tank missile had been fired.

IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said, “Israeli civilians celebrating the last day of the Passover Holiday woke up to the sound of Code Red alarms and rockets. It is our obligation to seek out and target those who wish to attack our civilians and soldiers and to eliminate their capabilities. Hamas rocket terrorism is an intolerable reality Israelis should not have to accept.”

Since the beginning of 2014, more than 100 rockets launched from Gaza have struck southern Israel.

  1. Kashif you don’t live in Gaza you don’t live in Israel I no people who live in Gaza and they say there fed up with Hamas furring rockets into Israel they just want to live in peace but people have sAaid this to Hamas and nearly all of them have gone missing Hamas are killing there own people if you don’t agree with them . In the last 10 months
    Hamas have fired over 9000 Kasam rockets into Israel and you don’t think they should retaliate I wonder where you live ? I wonder if any country in the world wouldn’t retaliate
    . I suppose the only country in the world shouldn’t protect themselfs is Israel ‘!!! And by the way some of my family are close family who are Muslim
    You should go there and see and hear for yourself instead of
    Listening and looking at properganda like a lote of Idiots do ‘!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Our friends Alex and Dora live in Israel with their families. As they wrote, since January, more than 100 rockets were fired and… counting. The media don’t write about it – there is a kind of censorship about the topic in the biggest media worldwide and this is as horrible as the terror coming from Gaza.

  3. Kashif Hussain I can’t get it. How do you not have a sense of humanity? You think Israel wants to pass the time bombing Gaza for sport? No. Gaza bombs Israel for sport. In your eyes you see only Gazans dying, not Israelis also. Sick. Hamas continues to bomb Israel, thus the killing continues back and fourth. If Hamas would stop doing it, THEN IT WOULD STOP! Gee. You are mistaken, there is nothing but Jewish archeological evidence in Israel, Muslims do not use ritual baths. There are ritual baths all over Jerusalem. But that isn’t the point really. Your leaders had you leave and left you out in the cold, so Israel should feel sorry for the poor terrorist group Hamas? Everyone should get jobs, stop whining, and work like decent people. The west bank is more civilized than that, even. Israel is Interested in making things for the world to use, like curing cancer. What is Gaza interested in? Hmmm. Notice the Druzes live in peace in Israel, it’s not hard to comprehend. When people stop firing rockets into Israel, mending can start, but that won’t ever happen because it’s just too easy and Hamas and other people who have been indoctrinated with religious extremism aren’t intelligent enough to see a connection. When Gaza and other places decide to become civilized, instead of underdeveloped, war mongering, blood thirsty ghouls, maybe we can get somewhere.

  4. Why should Jews move to America? Israel is the Jewish homeland. Why don’t Arabs move to the Arab lands, since you’re not Jews. The Arabs who stayed are Israelis now, funny how that happened. There is absolutely not one compelling thing that is evidence tying these modern Arabs to Israel in a any way. However there is endless Jewish evidence.

  5. This is a war upon the Jewish religion that they distrupt our holiday. Time to do the same to their Friday and holiday and bar them from Jersualem as religion means nothing to the philistine pagans, sons and daughters of an Eygptian whore named hagar.

  6. Abbas is guilty allowing Hamas and other terrorists to send rockets into Israel hurting the civilian population. His plan is to force Israel to give in. Big error Now w have Bennet on board and he said no problem, Abbas can resign, we do not need enemies with friends like him. Time for Israel to show strength and reject all he is asking for.

  7. What needs to happen if a all out war and then destroy the countries and all there people that is against you. They are all cowards every one. They can only shoot rockets or suicide bombers, they don’t have the guts to go face to face!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. BDS THIS!

    Kaffir racial term applied to Blacks of South Africa… where did that come from?
    The word kaffir was used in the former South Africa to refer to a black person. Now an offensive ethnic slur, it was formerly a neutral term for South African blacks.

    The word is derived from the Arabic term kafir (meaning ‘infidel’), which originally had the meaning ‘one who conceals the truth.
    Portuguese explorers adopted the term to refer to black non-Muslim peoples when they became involved in the Arab slave trade along the coast of East Africa.
    Later, other European traders also adopted its use
    In South Africa today, the term is regarded as highly racially offensive, in the same way as “” in the United States and other English-speaking countries. It is seldom used as an isolated insult, but rather is used systematically by openly racist individuals when talking about black people, and as such was very common in the apartheid era. Use of the word has been actionable in South African courts since at least 1976 under the offense of crimen injuria: “the unlawful, intentional and serious violation of the dignity of another”.[

  9. It was a DISGRACE when Israel kicked out their people from Gaza in order to give it to the Palestinians. Then look what happen. They started shooting rockets out of Gaza. Then when Hamas took over they shot more rockets on to the Jewish people. Since Israel was so tough to remove their people from Gaza it is about time that they get tougher and KICK OUT the Palestinians from Gaza and TAKE IT BACK.
