Hamas Response to Israeli Cease Fire: Sharp Escalation in Missile Fire

Gaza terrorists have fired some 30 rockets and mortars at Israel in response to the unilateral cease fire initiated by the Jerusalem government Tuesday morning.

An initial barrage of 10 rockets and missiles was fired at southern Israel late Tuesday morning, underlining the group’s rejection of a cease fire proposal advanced by Egypt and begun by Israel at 9am. Grad missiles exploded shortly after 11:30 am in the port city of Ashdod, re-traumatizing residents and destroying more property.

One house sustained a direct hit in Ashdod, but miraculously no one was physically injured. Several residents were treated for shock, however, according to police. Four other missiles were intercepted directly over the city by the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system, indicating they were all heading for populated areas. Shorter-range rockets also landed in the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council district. Both were proof Hamas intended to make good on its word to reject the cease fire proposal advanced by Egypt.

A few minutes later, two rockets were intercepted over the town of Netivot, and an IDF soldier sustained shrapnel wounds in a rocket attack on the town of Sderot. The attack was the third since Israel’s security cabinet had announced its decision to unilaterally stop firing – although, the IDF warned, defensive action would still be taken and offensive responses would be considered as the situation warranted.

By midday, Hamas had fired barrages aimed at Haifa, Hadera, Ness Tziona, Ashdod, Yavneh, Rehovot and Ashkelon, among numerous other targets. Two missiles were intercepted by the Iron Dome system above central Israel a few minutes before 2 pm.

Gaza’s Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri told international reporters Tuesday morning, “The responses of resistance will continue until the demands of our people are achieved. Any unilateral Israeli cessation has no value in the light of the large crimes and the disastrous humanitarian situation.”

Among other points, the proposal, accepted unilaterally by Israel’s security cabinet in a 6-2 vote Tuesday morning, called for border crossings (from Israel) to Gaza to “be opened,” with the movement of people and goods to be “facilitated once the security situation becomes stable on the ground.”

One hour after Israel announced it had accepted Egypt’s proposed cease fire with Gaza, Hamas terrorists responded with a terse statement. “Don’t speak to us about a “calm” or ‘ceasefire.’ Our rockets will continue to land in your territory,” Gaza’s ruling faction promised.

The terrorist group punctuated its response with rocket fire aimed at a group of communities in the Eshkol Regional Council district. Two rockets landed in open areas.

About half an hour later, a Color Red incoming rocket alert sent members of Kibbutz Kerem Shalom racing for their shelters as well. In that area, Israelis have only 15 seconds to reach a safe space before a rocket explodes in their midst.

According to the terms of the proposal accepted by Israel, firing was to cease at 9 am. Between 9am and 12 noon, however, 22 rockets and missiles were fired at Israel from Gaza.

IDF Spokesman Lt.Col. Peter Lerner said in a statement sent to media at 10:50 am, “In accordance with the government directives, the IDF now holds fire. We remain alert and preserve high preparedness levels, both defensive and offensive. If the Hamas terror organization will fire at Israel, we shall respond.”

The vote by the security cabinet – which was not unanimous – also approved “forceful action” if Hamas violated the agreement, which it did within the hour. But it is not clear what, if anything, Israel will do, nor did officials give any indication what the term “forceful action” might mean.

Although Israeli officials tried to paint the cease fire acceptance as a victory, civilians calling in to radio programs Tuesday morning were anything but satisfied. Most expressed disappointment and outrage that Israel was backing away without first eliminating the rocket fire from Gaza as Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had promised to do at the outset of launching Operation Protective Edge. “The goals of the operation were to restore quiet for a long period of time and that goal has been achieved,” said a diplomatic source immediately following the cabinet meeting.

However, that is not true and quiet has not, in fact, been achieved at all – as was proved one scant hour after the cabinet vote.

The one advantage Israelis have gained is the certain knowledge – previously unrevealed – about the expansion and sophistication of the Hamas arsenal and military force, and the fact there is no longer anywhere in the country safe from Gaza missile fire. We are no longer facing a group of primitive terrorists in Gaza; we now face a full-fledged Hamas military force, similar to Hezbollah in Lebanon, plus ISIS. That issue must be dealt with and the sooner, the better.

    66 years ago, Israel wasn’t controlled by either Arabs nor Jews,
    It was controlled by the British and before that Ottoman Empire, and before that Romans, the Jews WAS IN COMPLETE CONTROL OF THE REGION BEFORE them ALL!

    ARABS NEVER CONTROLLED THE REGION, PERIOD!

    The time when majority of the Arabs claiming “rights” to the land were the ones immigrated to Israel when THE Ottoman Empire/BRITISH CONTROLLED IT!

    But Jews still remained in the country (Ottoman Empire era) even though most were being discriminated and exiled to other Arab countries and Europe, when the time came In 1878: The Ottoman Sultan Launched a Resettlement Policy” To Bring Foreign MOSLEMS, From Mainly Circassia & Algeria

    Mainly To overthrow the population of the Jews.

    In Jerusalem In Fact the Jews were the Majority, a document from the British Consulate Dated in 1859 States: “The Moslems Of Jerusalem Do Not Exceed a Fourth Of The Entire Population”

    After 1880, The Forces Of Nascent Jewish Nationalism, FOREIGN MOSLEM COLONIZATION Sponsored By The Turks, and Spontaneous ARAB IMMIGRATION Prompted by the new prosperity of “Palestine” Changed The Demographic Face Of The Land.

    Given that starting in 1878 enormous waves of Muslims immigration began arriving,in what was essentially a empty territory,
    It is obvious that the vast majority of those now calling themselves Palestinians, do not have thousand year old roots in the place.

    The Arabs that overthrown the Jews FROM THE NEW POLICY BY THE TURKS, restricted them from entering the land, IN THAT TIME only allowing Arabs TO IMMIGRATE !

    They didn’t even let them go to their holy sites ( the western wall etc), until Israel claimed its independence.

    So when majority BECAME THE Muslims, BRITISH appointed the man, Hussani , HE started to make a revolt against the Jews in the 1900′s , the British got involved and exiled him to Syria , then all Arab countries started to treat Jews like animals, by raping, murdering, taking their belongings etc…(including my family) and were forced to be exiled out , (More then a million Jews)!

    This was the same timing as the holocost , (which Husseni met with Hitler to discuss how to kill all the Jews) The Jews said it was time to go back to israel, and settle there where THEY CAME FROM (Even though there was still Jews there, but the ones that were expelled from the other Arab / Europe countries came to israel in peace. (They were originally from israel, they were coming back, because Arab / Europe countries were treating them like garbage.

    They BOUGHT LAND , from the Arabs that was there , no one is denying they the Arabs was there, but they weren’t there a long time like you think, and not only did they buy from the Arabs But for very high prices , we came in peace , the lands were mostly damaged from the Mustfi Hussanies plea for the revolt against the Jews!
    Then when the U.N / BRITISH SAW, what was going on, THEY PROPOSED TO MAKE IT A 2 state country between Jews and Arabs, reflecting the history of the Jews , Jews accepted, Arabs REJECTED, that’s when the Arabs provoked & STARTED THE WAR , not only the arabs in israel , but all of the neighboring ones as well, Jordan, Egypt , Syria , Lebanon etc… AND LOST!
    The neighboring countries , told many of them THAT WERE LIVING IN ISRAEL and the ones even from their own countries to flee until war was over , they listened and believed in getting rid of the Jews, THEY WERE PART OF THE WAR!!!!

    THE Arabs THAT DIDNT TAKE PART ARE BETTER NOW KNOWN AS THE ARAB ISRAELIS , who remained and were respected and treated with democracy, no one took anything from anybody, in war people die, and lose things REMEMBER THAT!

    Just think, did Arabs give back all the things they stole from the Jews in the Arab countries?
    Do we cry about it?
    We moved on, they wanted to exterminate us and lost against a tiny nation, tell me how in the world can a small group of people go against 7 Arab countries, in the most anti Jewish time ever? How?
    ITS NOT POSSIBLE , PERIOD!
    ITS G-Ds way of saying this the Jews land, think about it.

    Since then, Israel is constantly talking to make peace, but it’s the Arabs that doesn’t corupperrate, they want ALL or NOTHING, they don’t want Jews to have any control. over the years this selfish attitude made things WORSE, they started to do Terror actions against innocent civilians suicide bombs etc, that’s when Israel had no choice but to build a wall blocking them from entering in 2002, and since then there was no more suicide bombers , IF THEY WERE PEACEFUL AND LIVED WITH US IN HARMONY , this all would NOT happen, understand???????????

    READ The HISTORY!

    I’m a descent from a Jewish community in Syria , my grandfather and family was forced out, leaving everything behind, came to israel with his shirt on his back, lost everything he owned.

    Over 1 million Jews were kicked or forced out of Arab countries, we never got compensated?

    For many years we lived together, but then, the radicals mentality kicked in the Muslims, in the early 1900′s Mufti Hussani sent many revolts towards the Jews, it was a mess started by them.

    Jews were buying they’re land LEGALLY, and minding their business.

    Even the Arab leaders at the time confirm this in the British Mandate, Mufti Hussani the man himself who sent the revolts admited , that the Jews bought land legally and not only that , but bought land higher then what the market was asking for.

    Abdullah King of Jordan, said he was amazed of the paradise made in the fields by the Jews.

    THIS IS ALL RECORED BY THE BRITISH MANDATE.
    Go educate yourself, and be a little wiser, and maybe then you can stop living a lie.
