Israel Under Attack – Sirens Screaming in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Netanya

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.

    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.”

    Gaza needs to be back under Israel control.
