Hamas made a ‘bad decision’ in choosing to renew its attacks against Israel, IDF Spokesperson Lt.-Col. Peter Lerner told news media on Friday.

“The renewed rocket attacks by terrorists at Israel are unacceptable, intolerable and shortsighted,” Lerner said in a statement.

“Hamas’ bad decision to breach the cease fire will be pursued by the IDF. We will continue to strike Hamas, its infrastructure, its operatives and restore security for the State of Israel.”

Israel waited three hours Friday morning to see if Hamas would cease the rocket fire on its own, but when it did not, the Israel Air Force took to the skies.

The IAF strafed Gaza with air strikes across the region Friday as terrorists continued to fire one barrage of rockets after another at Israel.

More than 45 rockets exploded in various cities and towns in the southern part of the Jewish State. A number of homes were damaged, and four people were wounded.

While the cease fire was in place earlier in the week, Gaza’a Greek Orthodox Archbishop Alexios courageously shared with CBN News the fact that Hamas terrorists had set up their rocket launchers on a roof terrace outside his office at the Saint Porphyrios church. The cleric was given little choice in the matter, nor were the hundreds of innocent civilians who had taken shelter in the Gaza City church.

  1. Hamas continues non-stop of firing rockets at Israel to try and kill as many Israelis as possible. Israel says that Hamas ignores all cease fires, and does not want to be fooled again, and all the terrorists Hamas and gullible Western supporters of Hamas scream how horrible Israel is for not wanting a cease fire.

  5. Yes they sure did. What can one expect from total evil?!! It is time to wipe out the entire area. War is war, and nobody would sit back, and take all that Israel has taken from Hamas. The ignorant world continues to blame Israel? Do they condemn Hamas for Israel’s losses? HELL NO! Ignore the evil world, possessed by satan’s Islamic jihadists, and do whatever is necessary to keep Israel safe, and wipe them all out! Take some Nazis out too….

  8. A “bad decision” is like, not buying gas at the last exit, or deciding on 3 pieces of cake for 4 people, or something. Hamas launching rockets is not a “bad decision.”
