Hamas Breaks Cease-Fire with Three Rocket Attacks

Israel ceased and Hamas fired. Reservists called up. IDF has not retaliated – yet..

The Iron Dome knocked out a Hamas rocket over Ashkelon Wednesday night

Hamas attacked southern Israel with three rockets shortly after 9 p.m. Wednesday, ending the 72-hour cease-fire nearly three hours before its official end.

No one was injured.

Israel has not responded to the rocket fire, at least so far and may be waiting to see if Hamas is intent on launched round two of the war, or simply is letting Hamas play head games by not extending the cease-fire but and shooting three rockets just to prove it can do so.

The best scenario would be that Israel has spotted the rocket launching sites and will retaliate later this evening.

However, Hamas claims it did not fire the rockets, which makes the terrorist organization look even worse because if true, it proves, as it has often proven, that it does not control Gaza.

The Iron Dome anti-missile system shot down one rocket over Ashkelon, and two other rockets exploded in open areas in the area of Sderot, located approximately one mile – as the missile flies – from the Gaza border, and in the area south of Ashkelon.

The Palestinian Authority postponed a scheduled 9:30 p.m. press conference as truce talks in Cairo appear to have been nothing more than hot air that is about to blow up. President Obama spoke with Prime minister Netanyahu about the cease-fire during the afternoon, according to White House spokesman Ben Rhodes.

The IDF has called up reservists and extended the emergency “Tzav 8” orders so thousands of soldiers, some of whom were called up as long as a month ago.

After the original ceasefire began, the IDF pulled troops out of Gaza but redeployed thousands of troops along the Gaza border, from the north to the south, so that they can go into action immediately if need be.

However, hundreds of tanks and armored personnel carriers returned to their bases near Eilat and in the Golan. But enough remain near Gaza so that the IDF can retaliate.

  11. Very dissapointing indeed!!!!!! it is obvious that Hamas has no intention of peace.

  12. Time to finish the job

  13. Bongani N. No they don’t have any intention for peace, they are Ruining Gaza ! And the innocent peoples lives.

  14. It’s not enough to just wipe out the terrorists in Gaza. Israel should send Mossad agents to Qatar and Turkey to hunt down their leaders, who are pulling the strings of terror safely behind the walls of their luxurious villas, and assassinate them.

  15. They will never keep their word,they are too evil..God will always protect Israel..

  18. Jack Lincer says:

    Anyone surprised? These sand fleas need total extermination! If the Palestinians are dumb enough to continue to support them then if they die, they die!

  19. Go after them Bibi or you are a traitor.Enough already!

  20. Your psychology to refrain from retaliatory fire would be a significant message to those whom believe that you are committing war crimes to actually undeniably have to agree that you are not committing War crimes . Continue your mission with Iron Dome and make some demands regarding the release of all innocent civilians to have the right to evacuate to Egypt and if there is no response to that Humanitarian demand then return to defending Israel by the Tanks on the Border . Either way by popular opinion Israel has the Major support from the Free World Amen we Bless You with security & Peace Shalom

  21. I agree I’m getting very upset it’s a game Hamas is playing .

  22. Amen to what you said Robert Mandela

  23. Izik Izik says:

    you tilatata. and go to hell. 72 male virgins await you to

  24. Jacques Daniel. Send them flyers over all of Gaza telling them to emegrate to ther Arab land Jordan;your Palestine, Syria, Turkey, Irak, and leave the land Of Israel that we allowed you to stay in. An give them a couple of weeks to emegrate; then start mooving your Tanks. The rokets will stop, and will beg Israel ro stay.
