Israeli fighter pilots were busy late Monday night, flying sorties over Gaza to retaliate for Hamas terror attacks and repeated rocket fire aimed at southern Israel.

Gaza terrorists launched at least six rocket attacks at Israeli civilian communities overnight, sending families racing for their shelters and safe rooms nearly every hour from midnight to 3:30 am.

Missile fire was aimed at the coastal city of Ashkelon, and Qassam rockets were launched at the nearby Sdnot Negev and Eshkol Regional Council districts. Rockets fell in open fields, where no property damage was reported.

Several other rockets exploded near a packaging factory and a number of vehicles, causing damage, according to local reports. In addition at least one person was treated for trauma; several other residents suffered anxiety attacks as well.

The Israel Air Force immediately retaliated, striking rocket launcher sites and other terrorist targets in central and southern Gaza.

More than 30 terror targets were destroyed within a few minutes’ time, according to local Gaza sources, who said the air strikes “caused many explosions” especially in the southern area of the region.

In addition to the air force, Israeli Navy personnel and tank artillery participated in the attack, the sources said. Local medical workers reported that four people were wounded and one was missing in the town of Khan Yunis, a hotbed of terrorism and one of the sites where air strikes were carried out.

  29. Absolutely, take Gaza back, and put Israelis #1. Don’t worry about using too much force. There is absolutely no moral equivalence between Israel and those Palestinian Hamas animals. If they can’t live in peace and coexist with others (and dammit they have had enough chances), then it is time to treat them the way they treat us. Enough is Enough! “Better a terrible end than terror without end” (Golda Meir).

    G-d created us. We serve only one G-d, and there is only one religion to protect – that of the creator G-d. It is this same G-d that said in His Word that the land is Israel’s, He will remove all of her enemies, he will vindicate all animosity against her, just look at the turmoil in the lands supporting the terrorist actions, each and every one is being racked by the very same terrorism only magnified to the power of 10 and that against their own people!! When will they realize these acts cannot and will not go unseen and unpunished?

  33. do it more…teach them again..

  34. Bull Doz Gaza to the ground and take it back forever.

  35. Israel doesn’t hit hard enough after Muslim terrorists attack.
