Military Source Confirms: Palestinians Fired Rocket From Gaza Strip

On Sunday, the Palestinians launched a rocket from the Gaza Strip, an official military source confirmed.

The rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip towards Israel, and landed in an open area near Ashkelon. It was the first launch to reach Israel since the end of Operation Pillar of Defense month ago.

Recently the IDF identified at least one attempt to launch a mortar shell, which landed within Gazan territory.

  1. Liad Bar-el says:

    Rockets continue to fall on Israel and nothing is being done. Bennett backtracks on his word to refuse orders on taking down Jewish homes and Bibi backtracks on his word to fight terrorism. Basically, they both are saying that there is no state of Israel worth rebuilding and fighting for.

  2. Hadar Israel says:

    The fact that the Israeli Army FAILED to respond IMMEDIATELY, is a OPEN ENCOURAGEMENT TO TERROR. It will be a useless and futile exercise to recriminate about the hundreds of rockets after months of rockets raining. If they don't put a stop IMMEDIATELY by responding with artillery fire towards the source of the attack, as international law allows, it means that they care more about the enemy's kids than ours, and that they care more about what the Gentiles will say than about what Torah teaches.
