Terrorists Attack Eilat with 2 Missiles

Hamas, Islamic Jihad and brethren may be able to blow up the “peace talks” with a bit more war.

Terrorists  attacked Eilat with two Grad missiles early Monday evening, without causing damage or property damage.

The IDF has confirmed earlier reports of the rocket explosions, and security forces are combing the area to find the location of impact, a process that could take up to several days. Last month, the location of a missile attack on the area was discovered after five days.

It was not clear if the missiles were launched from the Sinai or central Gaza, but in either case, Hamas, Islamic Jihad or their brethren probably were involved.

Monday evenings missiles attacks – the media usually causes them “rockets” so it sounds a lot better for the peace process – shook windows and buildings in the tourist city. One witness saw a flash in the sky before one of the explosions.

The IDF has not yet retaliated for Monday’s attacks. An Israeli military official was quoted last week as saying, “We won’t go back to a situation where three or four times a week the red alarm sounds in southern Israeli towns.”

To the extent that the early warning sirens did not sound in Eilat, the IDF is technically off the hook, but the sentiment in the government, and in Israel, is that it is time to stop playing “rocket roulette:” because one eday, one of those little missiles is not going to fall in an open area but rather God forbid, on a home or kindergarten.

Israel’s problem, and it is a problem only because the government makes it one, is that a strong counter terrorist campaign would blow up the so-called peace talks.

  1. NOOOOO! NOT BEAUTIFUL EILAT!! WHY?????

  2. When are peace Talks Not peace talks ? When it is one sided !
    The Philistines ! Sorry wrong century ! The Palestinians do not wont peace ! What they wont is to drive Israel into the Sea ! Thats ok tho the last time some one was stupid enough to try that their entire army was destroyed by the same sea !
    History does tend to repeat it self !

    My Great uncle was in the Australian Light Horse Brigade that Charged Machine guns and out numbered 5 to 1 on horse back with out firing a shot a Beersheba. He admits that they did nothing ! That G-d was behind the victory to begin the Liberation of Israel. The world will find out the Hard way that those who go against his word and promise to the Jews will always find themselves on the wrong side of the Battle.
