Following the reports of a ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinians terror organizations, communities in the South were hoping that life would go back to normal, but  at 8:00 Tuesday night the shooting from the Gaza Strip resumed. A Grad rocket exploded in  the parking lot within the town of Netivot, causing damage to several vehicles. One person  was lightly wounded by shrapnel in his hand and received treatment; 11 suffered from shock.

Commander of the Negev District Police Brigadier General Peretz Omer arrived at the scene of the exploded rocket in the parking lot, and coordinated the follow-up activity, in an attempt to prevent needless panic. At this point it appears that schools, which had been closed since the weekend by order of the Home Front Command, will be open Wednesday.

A resident who had been standing near the parking lot when the rocket blast occurred, told Ma’ariv: “This is another great miracle on the list of Netivot miracles. We heard the alarm, people took cover and the shrapnel hit the car. Some  people suffered from shock.”

Since the unofficial ceasfire agreement was reached between Israel and Hamas, brokered by Egypt at 1:00 a.m. night before, there has been a significant drop in the rate of firing from Gaza, compared to the previous three days. However, several rockets had still been fired into Israel on Tuesday.

During the night and this morning, three rockets were fired at the western Negev areas. Earlier Tuesday evening a rocket was fired at the Ashkelon Coast Council district, and a mortar shell exploded in an open area within the Eshkol municipality.

Despite the renewed “dripping” of terrorist rockets fire on southern communities, the heads of local councils and  the Home Front Command announced that public schools in the south will resume normal operations, including the town of Netivot, despite  the rocket that fell on the city center.

Shortly after the shooting on Netivot, Palestinian sources in Gaza reported that  IDF tanks were shelling the area east of Gaza. According to the report, Israel Air Force aircraft were circling Gaza continuously.

Earlier Tuesday evening, in a meeting of government ministry director-generals, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu referred to reports about the truce by saying, “Our message is clear – peace will bring peace, and all those who violate it or even try to break it, our sights will find them.”

    Horrible vileness these attacks upon Israeli people who just want to live in peace with all the middle east peoples.

    I have spoken with Palestinians visiting my country and they admit hate for all Jews, and they say Palestinians who say contrary is a lie many times always and that these Palestinians and Allies are political pranksters who say the life Israeli people and then they laugh again.

    Palestinians and all middle east are proud to hate all of Israeli they say, all Jews, all children, and all women. Palestinians say that all Israeli men are gay-bisexuals like Israeli women are and abuse their own children and neighbors children.

    Palestinians say Israeli people they do such horrible things to Christians and are all racist Zionists, and this is not true, and all lies regards Israeli people.

    These Palestinians in America always tell Christians how Jews hate USA, how Jews hate Christians, and show youtube videos that prove this true how Israeli people hate, but these are actors and fakes I know this is not true.

    Israeli’s all love Christians and USA very much, yes.

    The Palestinians, Iranians, and all Middle East enemies of Israeli people voice Mossad created and make happen 911 WTC attack is a total lie -again.

    Middle East people always say Israeli blame all this on their enemies in middle east for 911/WTC through USA politics and news medias, and this is more lies by Palestinians and Allies.

    These Palestinians and Allies are all lies, horrid and evil demons.

    God will make all of middle east, (that will), become punished for torturing the Israeli people all these years.

    I wish now everyday Israeli DF crush all enemies, all of the middle east and take back all their lands in the middle east for Jewish only settlement.

    Israeli DF, Government, and Israeli people deserve justice and must send troops into all Palestine 1st, and then all of middle east and driving them all away forever.

    Israel must stop this vile evil influences harming the Jewish culture with news media lies, stop them from harming the children and teenage boys and girls and families. Middle East is all evil who hate Israeli State and it’s peoples.

    When I see, when I read this article makes me feel so very sad, so shamed, but I feel brave for all of Israeli people knowing they deserve all of Palestine, and all of middle east lands as their own land in occupation by Jews ONLY.
