During the early hours of Thursday morning, Jan. 16, five rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel. The rockets set off the Tzeva Adom Code Red Alert sirens along the western edge of Israel’s borders.

The Iron Dome defense system intercepted the five rockets, while one additional rocket landed in an empty field.  The rockets were aimed at or near the Israeli city of Ashkelon.

No injuries were reported.

This most recent round of rockets started on Monday when the Gazans decided to send a farewell barrage to former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon who was laid to rest at his Sycamore Ranch in the Negev on that day.

The IAF retaliated for the rocket launches by striking four terror infrastructure sites in northern Gaza.

    Nice way to thank the PM who gave them their 'freedom' in Gaza.

  2. Run Guo says:

    No more giving up G-Ds land for peace, Gaza should be the last painful lesson.

  3. Myriam Obadia says:

    Next time Kerry asks us to give more land, let's tell him we'll do it only after he has spent 10 years in Sderot 24/7 and 365 days per year

  4. Todd Kester says:

    We do not like Kerry and we hate Obama,He is the Anti Christ.

  5. The only thing we learn from history is that we do not learn anything from history.

  6. Anonymous says:

    Not to mention the prime beach-front property and its brilliant Jewish agriculture scientists and settlers who were living there. There's a special place in Gehinnom for those who give away the land that Hashem gave us!

  7. Kerry can divide USA with Mexico and return all the land they stole from the mexicans. It can be a good idea and leave in peace Israels people

  8. Myriam Obadia says:

    Eny Izquierdo Kerry forgot about not throwing stones when you live in glass house. He lives on actual stolen land (from Native Americans), Israelis don't: they live on legitimate Israeli land

  9. Ronald Paulsen says:

    the rockets issue seems to be a hoax…..more like a get rich quick skeme
