Latest update: July 6th, 2014
Dozens of rockets and mortars were launched at Israel over Shabbat as Hamas terrorists laugh at PM Netanyahu’s unfulfilled ultimatum.
Most of the rockets landed in the Eshkol region and Ofakim, but two reached as far as Be’er Sheva.
One of the rockets targeting Be’er Sheva was taken down by the Iron Dome system, the other fell in an open area.
A soldier was lightly injured by a mortar that landed in the Eshkol region.
The IAF struck some terror targets and missile launch sites, but these attacks have been ineffectual in convincing Gaza to stop the wave of rockets on Israel.
PM Netanyahu consulted with his security services on Saturday night, though it’s not clear why, since he already issued an ultimatum that has been blatantly dismissed by the enemy, and that he hasn’t followed through with.
Be’er Sheva hasn’t been targeted (or more accurately, reached) by Gazan missile, since 2012.
By not responding decisively and forcefully to the Gazan rockets, Israel is projecting weakness to Hamas, and further emboldening them, hence the increased rocket launches and attempts to hit cities even further away.
The city of Ashdod has cancelled school tomorrow for all educational centers without sufficient bomb shelters.
