The warning sirens are screaming and the rockets are threatening a wide swath of the tiny land of Israel.

So far on Tuesday, July 8, sirens alerted residents of Beer Sheva, Gush Etzion, Tel Aviv, Herzliya and Jerusalem to race to the closest bomb shelters.

The municipality of Jerusalem issued a notice that all bomb shelters in the city must be opened, and directed residents to a site on the location of the closest shelters. Private homes with safe rooms large enough to take in others were asked to do that to ensure everyone has a safe place to wait for the emergency to end.

A rocket struck a home in Jerusalem, but no one was injured.

In Tel Aviv, the municipal government issued a state of emergency and ordered all bomb shelters be opened.

The Jewish Press will continue updating this story throughout these ongoing attacks.

  19. Reminds me of 1991 with the Scuds from Iraq coming in. However, this time Israel has control over its fate and will hopefully end this garbage once and for all. They have got to “play to win” so to speak- they have the power to do it and should.

    lol right but prayin’ should never be over!

  31. Sara White says:

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has issued the following statement this evening:

    “In recent days, Hamas terrorists have fired hundreds of rockets at Israel’s civilians. No other country lives under such a threat, and no country would accept such a threat.
    Israel will not tolerate the firing of rockets on our cities and towns.

    We have therefore significantly expanded our operations against Hamas and the other terrorist organizations in Gaza.
    This comes after our repeated efforts to restore calm were met with increased Hamas rocket fire.

    Israel is not eager for war, but the security of our citizens is our primary consideration.
    Israel targets Hamas terrorists and not innocent civilians. By contrast, Hamas targets Israeli civilians while hiding behind Palestinian civilians. Hamas, therefore, bears full responsibility for any harm that comes to Israeli and Palestinian civilians alike.

    We are determined to give our citizens the safety and security they deserve.”

  32. Karen Bryant says:

    Gaza needs to be back under Israel control.

  56. I do not believe any of us thought that it was possible for Israel to fire on the Arabs and the scumbags would sit back and do nothing. Now they just have to make sure that they annihilate them.

  57. One day one of these groups Hamas or Hezbollah or ISIS, or some other nut bag Islamic terror group is going to send a rocket toward Jerusalem and they will hit the Temple Mount. It will hit that golden dome or the Al Aqsa Mosque. And the Arab world along with their western media lapdogs will put the blame on Israel. Myself I’d love to see them do something so stupid.

  66. For hundreds of years, there has been a pejorative propaganda against Jews, which by its intelligence occupied the first places in the world in scientific development and are maximum awarded with the Prize Nobel in the sciences. If were not for the Jewish State of Israel which is the bastion of the Western world in the Middle East, toward longer time than all the Europeans and Americans would be living in the last century VII and dress with skirts, turbans and slippers as Arabs and supporting their criminal Islamic dictatorship.
