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.

  1. 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).

  2. 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?

  3. I can’t understand why some people in Palestine still are using this violent tactics, killing innocent civilians. Logically, IDF can’t do anything different, as other committed Defense Forces, as Saudis, Russians or Egyptians

  4. The world is sleeping, & will only talk when Israel retaliates. Israel should just them back n their own coin & careless what the rest of the world think. Even if Hamas succeeds in its attack against Israel, some will still condemn Israel, so why give a damn?
    Long live Israel!

  5. I don’t really understand why we are breeding these Hamas cockroaches (terrorists) in our prison and breeding them. The States budget is wasted on them. When we have cockroaches are home we do not breed them but kill them with flit. These Hamas monsters must not be breeded. Just kill them. Our Israeli soldiers arrest these terrorists and then the relatives of these terrorists kidnap our people and blackmail for release of these cockroaches. I plead instead of arresting these terrorist we must kill them coz these terrorists are not humans. I plead again.

  6. @maryam zidan first of all we’re not pigs you and your people are. You cowards use propaganda to aid your pathetic cause. Please provide me an example of the IDF taking a Palestinian kid and torturing please tell me. You people lie to make us look like monsters when in reality your the monsters. Your people butchered an entire family on a Friday night and your spineless “jihadists” stabbed a 4 MONTH OLD BABY TO DEATh. If you don’t believe me look up the Itamar attack SOMETHING THAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED.

  7. 4 little rockets that kill 0 , vs 30 highly destructive well aimed air strikes in densely populated areas… the maths dosn’t add up in your favour idf, not this time. As for blaming hamas on the kidnappings, you have no proof and they repeatedly denied it (hamas love taking responsibility when they commit terrorism) , for all you know it could have been a few rouge criminals.

  8. News flash you pathetic excuse of a human you own a tiny piece of israel and we own and control the majority. It’s so unfortunate that god gave you a brain he could have easily given it to someone who really needed because you have the intelligence of a donkey.

  9. Your just as spineless as some of your people you don’t even have the courage to respond to some of the replies which shows your just a follower a follower who just goes along with what your being told. At the end of the day your faceless coward just like those who blow themselves for their god. I really question if you jihadists worship god or satan I really do.
