The IDF is determined to bring quiet to Israel and especially to families in the south with Operation Protective Edge.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon told media on Tuesday, “We intend to make sure there will be total silence – zero rocket fire – aimed at Israel when we are done this time.

“The situation on the ground has proved that Hamas does not want a truce.”

IAF fighter pilots have flown sorties throughout the day, carrying out targeted air strikes aimed at eliminating selected Hamas military leaders and terrorists who operate rocket and missile launchers.

Ya’alon said he told mayors in the Tel Aviv metropolitan area to “take into account there will be possible fire on their cities.”

The Home Front Command search and rescue unit is preparing for deployment in the Tel Aviv area, officials said.

In addition to Tel Aviv, officials in Rishon Lezion have also opened the public bomb shelters, and have warned residents to stay away from the beaches.

During the last mini-war, Gaza terrorists fired Iranian produced Fajr-5 and M75 missiles at Tel Aviv, Rishon Lezion and the Jerusalem area.

  6. Miriam Brest says:

    As long as they don’t pull out prematurely like they did the last time.

  7. Sam Mensch says:

    Israel DESERVES this because she has allowed this: this would NOT have happened unless Sharon HAD stayed in Gaza and the rest of Eretz Israel HAD FULLY supported the peace-keeping Gaza settlers. Also, NO rocket attack or ANY terrorist attack should EVER be allowed to occur without SWIFT, HARSH, and IMMEDIATE retaliation. When will Israel LEARN? Israel needs to do what Israel needs to do: INVADE Gaza and DECIMATE Hamas…screw Ovomit, the anti-semites at EU and at the UN. STOP the food, water, electricity to Gaza. Kill Hamas, bring back the settlers!
