The Israeli Air Force attacked “two terror sites of the Hamas organization” in southern Gaza Monday night following a rocket strike on Gaza Belt communities.
It exploded in an open area, causing no injuries, no damage, more tension, stress and another sleepless night for Jews living near the area from where Jews were expelled and from where the IDF withdrew 10 years ago to make Israel safer.
The IDF Spokesman’s office noted that last night’s attack was the 18th of the year.
They have become so routine that one major website in Israel reported that the rocket was “lobbed,” like a softball.
IDF Spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said what everyone living near Gaza knows, calling the situation “intolerable.”
In fact, it has become tolerable, just like years of official Palestinian Authority incitement was tolerated until the results of terror have become intolerable and uncontrollable. Gaza Belt Jews tolerate the constant stress and trauma and occasional injuries, property damage, and sometimes death.
The government tolerates it.
The IDF tolerates it.
Until the next war.
For the record, the IDF stated:
The intolerable reality of civilians continually living under the threat of Gaza rockets is unacceptable, unbearable and must stop. Hamas must enforce their responsibilities or face the consequences. We will act against those that attack us and hold those that enable attacks against Israel accountable.
